• 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.

Hi everyone!

About two months ago I started developing a simple utility to quickly get reference speeds for the beloved Majestic Dash 8.

The first try looked like this:


My friends loved it, but i was not really satisfied. I mean, it was an ugly console application...

So I started expanding my programming knowledge (which was acquired in school...) with watching tutorials, and after days of trial and error, a version with a user interface was born:

Still, it was rather ugly. And then... Ideas started coming. What if...? I asked myself, and I sat down again to develop newer functions.

As of today, I'm finishing the brand new UI, which looks like this:



I will release this as a freeware, soon.

Currently it can:

-calculate the reference speeds from:
-->manually enterred weight
-->weight from the .ini file (this is where the Majestic Control panel saves the payload data)
-->live from your simulator

-dial in the correct speeds in your simulator (requires registered FSUIPC)

-for a shared cockpit flight you don't need to exchange IP adresses, you just run the tool with your friend and it will set it up automatically

-it can warn you if your and your friend's navdata aren't matching (useful for shared cockpit flights)

You can see the plans for the future here.

I wanna say a big thank you to Paul Henty, author of the .NET interface for FSUIPC, and Dennis Magno, for creating the Metro UI Framework for .NET.

Stay tuned for updates and release.
