11/20/2014 - 01/24/2015 CHANGES 

CORE ACCU-SIM
 - Accu-Sim "Heavy metal" update, which better synchronizes control input and some inertia physics added to Accu-Sim (Spitfire, P-40, P-51's, and the 182 Skylane). This should also translate to increased feel in the landing flare.
 - Enhanced departed flight system (stall), for better feedback when flying on the edge (Spitfire and P-51's).


B-17 "Flying Fortress"
 - Engine quits if there is no fuel pressure
 - Cleaned up some code


377 "Captain of the Ship"
 - AFK distance traveled based on LAT / LONG for better accuracy
 - Pregnant Guppy backup attitude indicator fixed
 - Cleaned up some code

C172 "Trainer"
 Features / Enhancements:
 - Improved fuel selector sounds
 - Sun visor sounds
 - Improved radio button sounds
 - Changed the angle of taxi light
 - Added the option to remove the external model shakes with code (for cockpit builders)
 - 2D panels. Walk-around. Pitot temperature check icon gray out when pitot cover is on
 - Static air lever sound
 - Electrical charge sound
 - Slightly tuned aileron effectiveness at very slow speed
 - Added the grill to the loudspeaker on the ceiling

 Fixes:
 - Fixed animation of elevator trim in VC
 - Fixed default landing lights
 - Elevator lift won't happen if the elevator UP actuator is broken
 - Prop strike code corrected to avoid prop strike when repositioning to a new airport
 - Low fuel triggers AFK emergency pause.
 - Added mechanical fuel pump condition to engine accessories condition and "inspect engine"
 - Fixed animation of the right door handle in external view
 - Fixed altimeter texture
 - Added missing text to the audio panel


"Cherokee" 180
 Features / Enhancements:
 - Altimeter and VSI gauges changed from Cessna-like to Cherokee-like
 - Low fuel triggers AFK emergency pause

 Avionics. Audio Panel:
 - Marker Beacon is off when microphone selector knob is at OFF position.
 - AUTO feature when engaged: selected transmitter will be matched automatically with receiver.

 Fixes:
 - Mouse wheel direction for the switches reversed
 - Added mechanical fuel pump condition to engine accessories condition and "inspect engine"
 - Prop strike code corrected to avoid prop strike after re-positioning to a new airport
 - Autopilot turn knob tool tip shows values.


C182 "Skylane"
 - Smoother prop sounds (NOTE, the updater doesn't update the 182 aircraft - this was done in the core Accu-Sim)


P-47 "Razorback"
 - Improved low RPM fouling
 - Increased sound distance volume
 - Improved internal engine pressure behaviors allowing the aircraft to perform better at very high altitudes.
 - Increased the turbo's resistance to high temperatures.
 - Fixed fuel consumption estimations and updated clipboard with our latest standard of info


Spitfire Mk I/II
 - Updated propeller sounds
 While the prop sounds are enhanced across the board, it is most audible when the propeller rapidly cuts into the air during run ups and rapid power changes.
 - Fixed Spitfire slow running cutout switch (stops quicker)
 - Benefits from the core Accu-Sim "Heavy metal" update

P-40 "Warhawk"
 - Slight tuning of fuselage drag
 - Updated propeller sounds
 While the prop sounds are enhanced across the board, it is most audible when the propeller rapidly cuts into the air during run ups and rapid power changes.


P-51 "Military"
 - Updated propeller sounds
 While the prop sounds are enhanced across the board, it is most audible when the propeller rapidly cuts into the air during run ups and rapid power changes
 - Prop and supercharger efficiencies updated


P-51 "Civilian"
 - Updated propeller sounds
 While the prop sounds are enhanced across the board, it is most audible when the propeller rapidly cuts into the air during run ups and rapid power changes.
 - GPS. Missing bitmaps removed.
 - Avionics switch goes on/off if engine is on/off.
 - Prop and supercharger efficiencies updated
 - AFK: Unpause resets the counters
 - AFK: Low fuel triggers afk emergency pause
