Hi Bjoern, just a curiosity, did you modify displays (ND, ECAM..) brightness as well in your mod panel? I realized they are darker than Francoise's last release and the shown informations are barely visibile on my monitor.

Could be possible improve FBW system as well? As far I know we could go over 33° of bank angle appling a constant sidestick input (67° max). And after switching off computers we shoudn't have anymore these restrictions. Now I can't go over 33 even with computers off.

Yes it seems not working as the first tanks that are emptied first are the central ones and not the wing's. In a318 and a320 it's correct. I also realized that the central #1 and #3 go to zero. Meanwhile in the #2 there is a leftover when wing's tanks are switched.
