Or the engine status text that appears on the right of the screen? I want to work on relying on my instruments, so I dont use the speed bar, but is there any way to remove the throttle percentage and all that stuff?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I tried the settings to realistic, the engine status & the percent throttle were still there. Also remember that your overheat, engine fire, & fire extinguisher messages pop up here too.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Usually the engine fire and all that stuff I get a nice visual cue in the form of a nice big fireball. Thats all I need to tell me I have a fire. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Regarding the overheat, as I said, I want to work on relying on my instruments.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

One critical thing to remember is there is no way of knowing what your rads are set to as well.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Thats because the cockpit gauges either show BS half of the time or nothing at all, like the fuel gauge in the P-40. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif So how am i supposed to work without these screen messages then?

B/S fuel gauges are industry standard. Last year when I was flying 150s the SOP was to climb up and check fuel quantity using a dipstick before engine start because the fuel gauges in the cockpit were considered mendacious at best. In fact, several a/c had scraps of paper marked "U/S" taped over the gauges.

The moral of the story is that you should know how much fuel you started with, and you should have a pretty good idea of your fuel burn rate. Using those two bits of information you should then be able to work out your fuel state at any given time.

Well the "out of fuel" message is often accompanied by the stuttering stop of the engine. So I dont need an on screen message to tell me that.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Not only that, I also know a little quicker about the engine fires on the B-25 so I know when to break out the marshmallows http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
