How do I set it so that the engines do not start automatically when you load FS2004?

Thanks!

The short answer is.............you can't.

What you can do is load FS normally, shut off the engines and systems, and save it as a scenario. A little more work, but it's functional nonetheless.  Smile

I know there was a download that started fs with the engines off. Not sure if it worked in FS9.

What I did was assign a keyboard combination for automatic engine shutoff. Every time I load the simulator, I hit "Ctrl + Y" as soon as the panel comes up. Of course, this point is moot on some payware aircraft that allow you to start up "Cold and Dark".

*sigh*...

Save scenario with engines off
Set as Default Scenario

Now no matter what you choose for location/aircraft/etc the engines will be shutdown.

I basically do ctrl-shift-f1 right away, pretend that the aircraft just pulled up to the gate, and it's ready for its three-minute turnaround!

I swear there is a program that you can download from AVSIM, that starts all flight 'Cold and Dark'.

The problem is with stock simulations, is that the lack of functionality of the aircraft systems means you can't power up from cold and dark.

I do it all the time. Set up a flight through your flight planner. Turn off engine or engines, wait for them to wind down. Shut down avionics and battery. Save the flight and make it the default flight. Next time you boot up FS9, you'll have an airplane that you start up according to the check list. From there you can change aircraft, airports, and flight plans.
