    P3D v3 Turbo prop torque gauge.

    You could use XML Tools, available in the Resources here to read that variable. It has been a long time since I've used them, but I think what you would use is called FlightDataRecorder. As you tagged this post P3DV3, that is the version of XML Tools that the link points to. There are other...

    Roy, You're asking about P3D, so FWIW. I tried this Event ID in FSX on an 8 tank system and I get the same result. No fuel added to the external tanks. I use Simconnect to load the aircraft fuel, pax, cargo. That would be one way to load the externals.

    FS2004 A "Poor Man's FMC" - Automating Altitude and Vertical Speed

    It's in the resources here at FSDeveloper Edit: removed link to resources page, because as mentioned by bigglesworth in reply #3, the download link on it is no good.

    FSXA Beacon from another planet.

    Chris, Same situation in SP2. I did the same as Ray to get rid of it. Is it possible that you are compiling your file to a location that isn't activated, or even in FSX?
