Nice work on FSFO. It really adds to the immersion.
I'm running the NGXu in P3D V4.5 with FSUIPC 6.
I've noticed that when the panel state is set to short turnaround (the installed PMDG state that I haven't modified), the FO comes into the cockpit and immediately restarts the APU. It's the same way every flight, so I'm guessing you programmed it that way. Would it be possible to have him check the state of the APU and not restart it if it's already running?
Also, is there some trick to getting the FO to read the V1/Vr/V2 numbers? The manual says I shouldn't have to enter them for a PMDG 737, but he never calls them out (either in the checklist or on the takeoff run) whether I enter them or not.

Hey Yoda. He should check the APU before initiating it again; I'll check to ensure that's the case. On the PMDG aircraft, you don't have to enter any numbers, just ensure the Call V1/VR/V2 option is checked via the USer Config menu.

He Yoda, can you check the following:
1. Are you using the latest FSUIPC? FSFO reads the numbers from PMDG FMC via FSUIPC; obviously, the FMC needs to be programmed too 2. If you're not using PMDG aircraft, you need to enter the V1/R/2 Speeds via the Brief page.
