Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

*'''Priming''' is simulated realistically if you enable "complex engine procedures". For a successfull engine start, follow the checklist. In colder weather, let the fuel flow a little longer, about 1-2 secs. If it is too cold, use the '''preheater''' (-> Ground Equipment) to preheat the engine.<br/>If the engine is "warm" (~75°F), you can omit priming altogether (as long as the remaining fuel in the manifold did not disperse; if it is dry, such like before the first start, inject some small fuel ammount by priming procedure).
* Also be sure in your preflight check to remove '''water contamination''' not only in the wing tanks, but also the fuel strainer (right front) and fuel selector (below aircraft)
* '''In Winter'''(<20°F/-6°C), you can apply the '''winterization kit''' to keep the oil sufficient warm. When the oil is too cold, the engine will cough and not develop full power.
*'''Oil usage''' is now also implemented. Be sure to check the oil level in preflight (cap on left nose top) and also conduct an oil change every 50 hours or so, otherwise the oil gets worn out and consumption rates will rise significantly.
*'''Start-up states''' are available now. You may either use all settings of the last session or choose one of "cold-and-dark" / "ready for takeoff" / "cruise". The "Auto" option selects from the last three depending on the startup situation (parking position->cold-and-dark; runway->RfT, in-air->cruise).
