Hi everyone, I’m quite new and have a question regarding XP. I checked some old threads and YouTube videos on how to increase XP and found that the doing repeated landings in a Spitfire or long-haul flights using the autopilot seem to be the most efficient way, however, neither of those methods are appealing to me and to be honest don’t seem to be a good measure of pilot experience, as landing a Spitfire is hardly difficult, and long-haul autopilot flights are done mostly while asleep. So, do any of the following increase XP?
- Flying and landing a variety of different aircraft;
- Doing a flight without using the autopilot;
- Correct approach before landing;
- The smoothness of flight, such as in banking and climb/descent;
- Flying on the Training Server as opposed to the Casual Server;
- Activating the system controls in the correct time window;
- Or anything else I might have missed?
It would be really nice to have a breakdown of the XP at the end of the flight to see exactly where I went wrong and how I could improve the flight. It would also add longevity to the sim.
Also, just a quick side question. Am I right in thinking that when I can’t click on the runway start waypoint (it’s sometimes greyed-out) that it means that my plane is too big for the runway?
The airport weather doesn’t seem to be working either, as it often says ‘Not available’, not sure if that’s a bug or I’ve missed something; it does show in the top-right of the corner a green tick saying the weather is working though.
Also, just a final question while I’m here. On one of the loading screens, it says the UI is customizable by clicking the hud option in the settings, but I couldn’t find this button. Whereabouts is it? I use an iPad and it’s awkward to control the rudder, and likewise with the throttle when the reverse thrust is applied, as both are positioned on the edges and both are required at the same time during the landing.
Thanks in advance, Jon.
