=== Updates to the Citation II ===
 +
During March 2017 the [[Cessna_550_Citation_II|Citation II]] has received a number of updates:
 +
==== Citation II config dialog ====
 +
One of the more prominent ones is the new Citation config dialog. It allows for settings, such as, what group of items you want to be stored throughout sessions. Also, for convenience, it provides some shortcuts to most used dialogs and a button to reset all circuit-breakers at once.
 +
 +
Check it out in sim via <code>menu -> Citation II -> Citation II config</code>.
 +
 +
==== tutorials ====
 +
Also 2 [[Tutorials|tutorials]] have been added in the [[Boeing_707-420|707]] style - with markers, view zoom and explicit messages. See the Citation II config dialog or menu -> help -> tutorials.
 +
 +
==== state overlays ====
 +
It is now possible to start the Citation II in some assorted [[State_Overlay_System|states]]. You could start FG on a parking space and add <code>--state=parking</code> to startup the Citation cold and dark. This would be a good place to start the startup tutorial from the config dialog.
 +
 +
Or you could start on the runway and add <code>--state=take-off</code> to your launcher. All you need to do is throttle up and go! Or take the tutorial "take-off" from the config dialog, which will guide you savely to cruise altitude, according to official checklists.
 +
 +
All possible states are:
 +
* parking  ( cold and dark, all systems off) (same as without --state=$state )
 +
* taxi    ( engines and all systems running - ready to taxi )
 +
* take-off ( flaps and AP set - just throttle up and go )
 +
* cruise  ( flying at FL360 on AP )
 +
* approach ( !experimental! )
 +
For details see: [[Cessna_550_Citation_II#will_be_released_with_2017.2|Citation II]]
 +
 +
==== new splash screen system ====
 +
James has added a new splash screen scheme, as well as a new preview feature for the [[FlightGear_Qt_launcher|QT launcher]]. The Citation II now complies with that scheme and provides a new logo and some brand-new splash screens.
