• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

    MSFS Autopilot pitch control

    I did something similar in Javascript, for MSFS of course :)

    MSFS Autopilot pitch control

    I have tested, and by switching wing leveler off, it works !! Here is my code, as suggested by you: SimVar.SetSimVarValue("K:AP_ATT_HOLD_ON", "Bool", 1); SimVar.SetSimVarValue("K:AP_WING_LEVELER_OFF", "Bool", 1); The current pitch attitude is maintained, perfect :)

    MSFS Autopilot pitch control

    I don't code in XML, I use Javascript, so my code was: SimVar.SetSimVarValue("K:AP_AT_HOLD_ON", "bool", 1); I didn't switch off the wing leveler. I will try this. I also tried to use the pitch mode, hoping I could set it to a certain value: SimVar.SetSimVarValue("K:AP_PITCH_REF_SET"...

    MSFS Autopilot pitch control

    I did this, without turning wing leveler off. It didn't have any effect... During my test, the autopilot was used to maintain heading and nothing was used for the pitch control. Using AP_ATT_HOLD_ON didn't have any effect, while I was expecting that A/P maintains the attitude. Maybe I missed...

    MSFS Autopilot pitch control

    Hello, This problem is not new, I also had it with fs9/FSX and could find a workaround, but not this time. I would like to control a pitch with the autopilot. For example, imagine I would like the autopilot to maintain a 3° nose up attitude. Is this possible? I tried to use AP_ATT_HOLD and...

    MSFS Autopilot LOC mode

    Hello experts, I am trying to get the LOC mode to work on my aircraft. To engage this mode, I use K:AP_LOC_HOLD_ON like I used to do with fs9/FSX/P3D but here it doesn't work with MSFS, the heading mode remains active and it does not capture the LOC. I must say my ILS is configured on NAV 3...

    MSFS Question about autobrakes

    You can forget my question, it works perfectly this way, according to the auto-brake setting, nothing needs to be done to have the auto-brakes working as expected. Thank you Asobo :)

    MSFS Question about autobrakes

    Hello experts, My aircraft autobrake selector has 8 positions, as shown here: I changed the systems.cfg to set auto_brakes to 6, with the additional RTO and OFF positions, I have 8 positions, from 0 to 7. So everything is consistent. Now the question is: how does the sim knows which is...

    MSFS Unable to override a template parameter

    I finally solved the problem by following your advice: I stopped using the Asobo templates, or by using only basic ones. It now works as expected. Thanks for your help.

    MSFS Unable to override a template parameter

    You're right >Anthony, this is the first thing I thought about and I wrote something like this: <CLOCKWISE_CODE>(&gt;K:HEADING_BUG_INC)</CLOCKWISE_CODE> <ANTICLOCKWISE_CODE>(&gt;K:HEADING_BUG_DEC)</ANTICLOCKWISE_CODE> But it didn't work, I saw that HEADING_BUG_INC and _DEC were never triggered...

    MSFS Unable to override a template parameter

    Hello, In the interior model XML file, I am trying to override the SET_STATE_EXTERNAL parameter. In fact, I use the ASOBO_AUTOPILOT_Knob_Heading_Template for my heading knob, which is defined in Autopilot_Subtemplates.xml, and I would like to change the code that is executed when the knob is...

    MSFS Manage needle animation in VC

    FYI, I worked with the 3D modeler and finally could do what I was looking for. I understood how the needle animation depends on the key frame definition, and it now works perfectly. Thanks for your help, Eric

    MSFS How to add default steam gauges to addon aircraft?

    It is not as easy as it used to be with fs9/FSX/P3D but you should be able to do something by looking into the interior model XML file, every part of the virtual cockpit is defined there. Eric

    MSFS Manage needle animation in VC

    Yes, this is what I understood. The problem is that I am not the author of the 3D model, I just can modify the interior model XML file, so I have no way to change the keyframes. That's why I have to manage this with the 3D modeling guy :)

    MSFS Manage needle animation in VC

    I see. I will see this with my colleague who works on the 3D model. Thanks.
