• 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 Customizing ASVigilus Engine Monitor ?

Well I currently use the ASVigilus engine monitor screen in my custom made plane. I mostly copied the setup from Asobo´s Extra 330 plane.
Now I am trying to change the Engine RPM display, but for some reason I can´t change the colors indicated on the monitor (especially the engine RPM).

At the moment the RPM is always showing the indicator highlighted in the red region.

What I would like to change is the color of the Engine RPM to green and turn red when the indicator is beyond 5500.

I tried to change in the panel.xml file the line about the RPM Gauge to this code:

Code:
<Column>
                        <Gauge>
                            <Type>Circular</Type>
                            <ID>RPM_Gauge</ID>
                            <Unit>RPM</Unit>
                            <Minimum>0</Minimum>
                            <Maximum>6000</Maximum>
                            <Style>
                                <BeginAngle>-45</BeginAngle>
                                <EndAngle>180</EndAngle>
                                <ValuePos>End</ValuePos>
                                <CursorType>Triangle</CursorType>
                            </Style>
                            <Value>
                            <Simvar name="GENERAL ENG RPM:1" unit="rpm"/>
                            </Value>
                    <ColorZone>
                        <Color>green</Color>
                        <Begin>700</Begin>
                        <End>5500</End>
                    </ColorZone>
                    <ColorLine>
                        <Color>yellow</Color>
                        <Begin>5500</Begin>
                        <End>5560</End>
                    </ColorLine>
                    <ColorZone>
                        <Color>red</Color>
                        <Begin>5560</Begin>
                        <End>6000</End>
                    </ColorZone>
                            <BeginText></BeginText>
                            <EndText></EndText>
                        </Gauge>
                    </Column>

But the RPM Gauge always is in the reds when above 3400RPM . Is this the wrong approach? Can I actually change the Gauges within the panel.xml file?
