atypical noob questions

Im sure someone here knows what the deal is with the environmental panel? Could anyone shed some light on this thing, I know its all about controlling airflow for powering systems but what are the correct real world settings and are there any consequences? Seems the manual is quite brief on this stuff.

 

Has anyone else noticed that if you turn on your oxygen correctly, once your up at altitude and turn it off you never black out? Kind of wondering about that, we were playing around with it in server a while back and nothing happened...

 

And lastly, windshield controls? Any modeled or has anyone found a use for this? I havent really flown in the snow much(didnt think about it in the rain) if at all, in fact only time I can remember flying in snow was for ILS practice. Has anyone noticed if this stuff is modeled or effective in-game?

As for the O2, I beleive that until you are above 13,000ft it does not come into play. I have never done it but I have read about O2 being left off and the pilot suffering visual symptoms of oxygen deprivation.

Was your pressurization on? If your pressurized you don't need oxygen. If you turn your bleed air on then you will notice your cabin alt gauge will be much lower than your actual altitude. I swear a guy on TS started blacking out once and I asked about his oxygen and he said he forgot to turn it on. I have not tried myself though.

 

If your cabin alt is below 10,000 you will not need oxygen. When flying in an airliner they don't "pump" oxygen through the plane. They just pressurize it. You can do that with the A10 too.

 

I believe the bleed air will provide the same bleed air it does for starting to your PACK or ECS. Then you can have air condition or heated air pumped into your cockpit. If bleed air is not on you will not get any pressurization.

Yeah im pretty sure I had the switches set so the little cabin pressure gauge was as high as possible, but I'll give it another try next time I fly. I usually set everything so it registers around 10,000 when im at altitude, but im pretty sure I messed with all that when I tested that. Learned all the cabin pressure stuff a long time ago.

 

Anyone know anything about the other stuff?
