    • Performance init pages including complete takeoff and approach performance calculations, with field lengths and Vspeeds
    • Custom developed and implemented a flight plan import directly from Simbrief via the FMS, allowing users to spawn without a flight plan, then load a Simbrief OFP/Flight Plan directly over the web (requires internet connection); this feature also makes it easier to fly multiple legs without exiting the simulation session

BETA

This is a beta, and as such you will surely encounter bugs and problems with the aircraft and functions. Please log these bugs under Issues at the Working Title Github Repo, and please TAG THEM as CJ4 issues.

OTHER MODS

Because of how the Community folder works, this mod will conflict with any other mod that includes one or more of the same files in the package. We have not included aircraft.cfg or any exterior textures so that the livery mods should work along side this mod. We have incorporated mods, such as the lighting mod from Uwajimaya. You can see where we’ve included these in the release notes.

INSTALLATION

Download the release zip file and extract the enclosed folder workingtitle-aircraft-cj4 into your Community folder to enable this mod. An installation of other Working Title packages is not necessary for this mod to function.

OPERATING NOTES

Thanks to our amazing QA team, and especially to community member Slip for crafting, curating and maintaining the Working Title CJ4 User Guide: Operator’s Guide

By popular demand, there is also a matching SimBrief profile for this mod available.
