• 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.

Beta testers for Panelmatic (FSX)


Resource contributor
Hi all,

it's been awfully long (more than two years!) since we last met. I'm getting back into the game and I have developed Panelmatic, an utility to keep track of panels in FSX.

Have you ever been annoyed by having to resize and move panels to your liking every time you fly? Have you honestly been to lazy to edit panel.cfg, only to be overwritten next time manufacturer updates the aircraft? I know I have.

And that's why I wrote Panelmatic. It automatically keeps track of how and where you position your panels and restores them once you load the same aircraft again. It is a must-have for those of us flying complex aircraft with tens of pop-up panels, many too large or too small by default. Panelmatic is non-intrusive, meaning it does not change any aircraft or Flight Simulator X files. It works completely in the background so you won't have to change anything in your habits. So far, I have been unable to find a single aircraft incompatible with Panelmatic.

Have a look at the manual: http://www.lennusimu.net/lasim/panelmatic/Manual.pdf

I would very much like your help in testing Panelmatic. Should you experience any errors, I expect you to help me a bit in troubleshooting them. In return, you will get a free Panelmatic license. Please email me paavo@lennusimu.net if you are interested in the beta, and don't forget to add which Windows version (XP, Vista, Windows 7) you are using.
Would be cool if you could make a utility that could install the default fsx autopilot and GPS to any aircraft in your library with a click of a button. :)
