• 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.

    FFG script and animations

    Hi, Have anyone here had any luck bringing animations over? Objects seem to work fine, but no animations? The readme says that animations are unreliable, but just wanted to check. I tested with 3D Studio Max 2021. Rotorhub

    No idea how it got there, but I'm probably going half blind during testing.:banghead:

    P3D v4 DME range needle

    Thank you very much for your help! The switch now trigger the needle, but the values don't seem to work as I anticipated. Both codes work correctly used on their own, but used together the range scaling gets messed up (see picture)? I have tried both / and * to set correct value at keyframe...

    P3D v4 DME range needle

    I am trying to make a DME needle gauge (VC) to read 20NM or 200NM range, according to the switch setting. Any tip on where I am failing? Rotorhub <Animation name="DME_Range_Sw_1" guid="27d2bbfc-32cc-4af3-8dab-f91259053d54" type="Sim" typeParam="AutoPlay" length="50"...

    3ds Max® software - for indie users

    https://makeanything.autodesk.com/3dsmax-indie It seems that the indie license is now available in most countries. $265.00 a year is way better. But it is hard to compete with $0, or whatever you would donate to use Blender. If I was certain that the available GMAX to 3DS MAX scripts would...

    How to use "dummy" VC switch to trigger XML gauge variables?

    I am doing a Jet Provost T4. Many of the switches in the VC are unsupported variables, like inverter selection and testing. I can add some code to the switch in the modeldef, but since I dont't know what functionality to implement yet, I just want to make use of a switch that have two states. I...

    How to use "dummy" VC switch to trigger XML gauge variables?

    The fuel pump was just the most obvious test, without making a panel gauge to check status. Sorry if it was misleading, but it was very useful as an example, thanks again. For most of the switches I will make a simple L:fake_system to mimic the behaviour of lamps and indicators. But, since I...

    How to use "dummy" VC switch to trigger XML gauge variables?

    After some more testing I found that the working example code interupts the "joystick" fuel pump toggle. They do not work together, any ideas? <Gauge Name="T4_systems_VC"> <Update Frequency="1"/> <!-- Just a test so I an hear the sound of the pump) --> <Element> <Select>...

    How to use "dummy" VC switch to trigger XML gauge variables?

    It's like learning to read another language backwards, and that your sentence always should make sence. I only had HTML/CSS/Javascript skills before taking on RPN, and some PASCAL 38 years ago. So even if I start to understand, it is still a bit of trial and error.

    How to use "dummy" VC switch to trigger XML gauge variables?

    It worked perfectly! I am working on my XML syntax deciphering skills, and it sinks in a little at the time. Thank you for taking the time to teach, and share your knowledge.

    How to use "dummy" VC switch to trigger XML gauge variables?

    Yes, 2D gauge without graphics, to control variables. Vc switch is only on/off. What you are saying makes sense, and I can't wait to try it out in the morning. Many of the switces in the real T4 don't have any matching fs variables. So this is a way of getting the switces "workable" after...

    How to use "dummy" VC switch to trigger XML gauge variables?

    I have tried all combinations above, and none will trigger the fuelpump. The only thing that I got to work is to "toggle fuel pump" from a joystick. Then the VC switch follows. But no action when the VC switch is flipped. So I probably got it backwards somehow, and the error is 40 cm from the...

    How to use "dummy" VC switch to trigger XML gauge variables?

    Yes, I tried it and it did not produce any result either, so I got a bit unsure. I will investigate further. Thank you for helping out!
