    FSX GUIDs

    Okay, this may be an insanely ridiculous question but, I don't have an answer so... I'll be ridiculous then! Hehehe!!! So, I want to start a mission from the exterior view. I know how to do this in the flt file by selecting the view GUID and setting rotation, zoom, etc. However I'm...

    2 Key Events / additional data

    I've been trying to do two things with a gauge and so far haven't found where the items go or, how to arrange them properly. If anyone could lend a hand, I'd appreciate it. Okay first, I'm using FSX. One thing I'm trying to do is make a mouse click area to open the cargo door / second exit...

    Default B738 Trim (?)

    Sorry if this is the wrong place but, it's the closest match I could find. I'm having major issues with my default B738 in that, upon nearing FL200, my autopilot goes nuts. Actually, it's not entirely the autopilot - it's the whole stinking aircraft! I use a standard climb profile: 250...

    Station points not properly saving in FLT file

    Got a weird one here: I've made some mods to some default aircraft and added station points that I actually use to store data during missions. By saving the FLT and later parsing the file, I'm able to pull data out without the need for SimConnect. Anyway, I've set the B738 with 50 points...

    Conditional Event Triggers

    Okay, I'm completely new to gauge design but, I'm getting a handle on it. However, I'm not sure if what I'm planning is actually feasible within the Gauges SDK. I understand that a MouseClick can be used to trigger a key event but what I want to do is use an evaluation of data to trigger it...

    Mission Gauge

    Kind of a screwy title but anyway... As I'm frustrated by the fact that a few of the things I'd like to do in the mission sdk cannot be done, I may have found a solution using a custom gauge in conjunction with the OPT. If anyone else has tried this or has any insights, please chime in. Got...

    Adjust Payload - using number instead of pounds

    Here's a question: I was playing with payload adjustments yesterday. The SDK allows you to enter values with up to 3 decimal places. However, I've found that only 1 decimal place registers on the aircraft. More specifically: I set up extra stationpoints in the aircraft.cfg to be used as...

    Virtual CoPilot

    I have searched and searched and found no answer to this so, I hope someone on here has a clue about it. In the FSX.cfg file, there is an entry: [VirtualCopilot] VirtualCopilotActive=0 (or 1) Does anyone know what this is supposed to do? I had thought that it was what auto-set the...

    SimVar's not in the Mission SDK

    Once again, I'm at work so I can't test this theory so, I'll ask away here. ;) Okay, thanks to the .pdf included with FSUIPC version 4, it is possible to manually edit the controls xml file and assign functions that are not available through the basic FSX assignments page. By default, you...

    Landing Gear

    Oh stink! Okay, I hope someone can help with this, like the problem I had with the flaps. And I don't care if I'm an ignorant idiot this time 'cause it's driving me crazy! :D Okay, I'm trying to get a confirmation audio for when the gear is down and locked. So far, I've been using the...

    Editing mission XML with wordpad - NO!

    I haven't had a lot of time to work on my mission file in FSX lately, so I backed it up and brought it to work, where I've been working on it using wordpad and the GUID generator. After putting together the last 30% of the mission, I put it into FSX to test it out - no mission found. When I...

    User Crash Message

    Here's another dumb question: :rolleyes: Where does the UserCrashMessage, entered in the Metadata section of the mission XML get displayed? For my thing, after you complete a mission, you need to save the flight (this will then be accessed by the addon for certain info about the...

    Property Trigger - FlapsHandleIndex

    Okay, I've got a problem here. As part of my Before Takeoff Checklist, I want to be sure that takeoff flaps are properly set. In my test mission, I want flaps to 8 (this is using the default CRJ7). First, I call a dialog from the CoPilot: "Flaps.wav" As check, I set up a property trigger...

    Flight Number - Saved Flights

    Okay, bit of a random question here. Does anyone know where the flight number is stored in the saved flight (FLT) file? Or more specifically, where on the computer? I need the ability to have my addon program alter the flight number before starting FSX and thought it would be a simple...

    Mission Ideas

    Thought I'd open up a thread for mission concepts. The project I'm working on currently may end up being payware so, I'm trying not to go overboard on the details, as I'm not into free advertising here but an exchange of ideas. However, there is a part of it that I've decided not to include...

    Weather Generation

    Does anyone know if there is a reasonably straightforward way of generating weather in FSX? In my mission thing that I'm working on, based on location (lat/lon/elev) and season, I want to be able to either select from a series of possible weather conditions or generate weather. Personally, I...
