The Automatic Aircraft Configuration feature, or Auto Config for short, has become one of the signature features of my aircraft. The idea for it came as the answer to the question which has spawned a lot of the features in my aircraft; what would I like to see in a product that I would buy?
Failure simulation. This is what in my opinion takes the DC-9 Classic, and all other addons that includes such a feature, to the next level. Usually when you simulate a system in an aircraft, you simulate ON or OFF in a normal state. With failure simulation a system can also be simulated ON or OFF in a failed state. While OFF is usually OFF regardless of state, ON and failed at the same time is where it can get really busy real fast on the flight deck.
Just recently came across an article on the Internet that detailed the differences between the various DC-9 models, as well as the MD-80 series, the MD-90 and B717. I thought it was a very interesting article and I wanted to share it with you.

The sound files contained within this package are a bit louder and more powerful than those included in the original DC-9 Classic sound set. While this may not be more realistic than the original sound set, it certainly has a great impact on the overal immersion factor and feeling of being there when flying the DC-9 Classic.
