New Version of Simcoders Reality Expansion Pack

The new version, 3.0 is out. I’m not sure if it is available for download yet. I’m reading about changes (mostly to the graphics) now.

I downloaded it from the download site: This is the page I originally downloaded the package from. The link was updated from the previous version to version 3.0. I didn’t receive notification though. I only noticed that there was an update because I was looking on the simcoders site for support.

My purpose for contacting support was to ask about the vacuum pump #1 failure. I’ve been getting that for a long time and the instrument air gauge hasn’t worked since I began to log this failure. The original message I received at the top of the screen, in the place where REP (Reality Enhancement Package) messages and tips are usually displayed, said something like, “Vacuum Pump #1 is failing and there is nothing you can do about it. I looked to see if there was somewhere in the REP maintenance report where I could fix it. There wasn’t so I looked on the main failures tab for X-Plane 11. It appeared under Flight/Edit Failures/Instruments/Sensor/Vacuum Pump #1. I switched from “failed” to “always working” but never stayed after closing the menu.

After installing version 3 and browsing through the new Maintenance Report, I found a line item for Vacuum Pump #1. I just clicked the OK column which fixed it.

I’m now on my way from NZAA (Auckland) to NZKT (Kaitaia), the farthest airport north.
