• 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.

FDE GUI App

Dear All,

We have compiled a GUI and a DLL (x64 P3D) so you can manipulate the FDE parameters on the fly:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/e7uzgds0kwvwkss/SimInFDE44.zip?dl=1

Please note this is an alpha GUI for you to test. Unzip the exe and the DLL to the P3D root. Then use the dll.xml and place it in the %programdata%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\ folder.

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks!

Edit: Updated for P3D V4.4. This is a trial build while we build some more functionality, it expires at the end of January. Cheers!

Hi fs1!
Thank you for this example of SimIn usage and capabilities demonstration.
Can you explain what mathematical equations are used with this constants and tables of air file?

During testing when I pressed "Save Data" there is an error window with "Sim is not running". I'm using Prepar3D v4.0.28.21686. When I run Prepar3D.exe with Administrator rules all works fine.
Playing with GUI I accidentally spoiled default cub's data. Can you add "back-up" button or "undo"/"redo" operations.

According to the Prepar3D SDK for Add-on Packages I suggest to change dll.xml file to the add-on.xml with the next contents and place all files inside SimInFDE folder to %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons.

XML:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="3,3" id="add-on">
    <AddOn.Name>SimInFDE</AddOn.Name>
    <AddOn.Description>Example of SimIn SDK for FDE parameters tuning using GUI.</AddOn.Description>
    <AddOn.Component>
        <Category>DLL</Category>
        <Path>SimInApp.dll</Path>
        <DLLType>PDK</DLLType>
        <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName>
        <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName>
    </AddOn.Component>
</SimBase.Document>

Here you have the maths on the FDE

This is a simple GUI. We are doing a full functional GUI, so things like Re-Do and so on may be available.
 
While using the addon XML file is a good idea, DO NOT place all files in Documents. Just stop with that insanity. The <PATH> entry can be fully qualified which means the software can be installed in the proper location, not in a document folder.
 
Hi,
I re-open my FS project folders recently and I'm working on a workload configuration gauge and I would like to adjust the drag dynamically so I'm highly interested in the SimIn SDK. event if it seems that the tread is sleeping for months... I'm using P3D 4.5 and the FDE GUI retrieve only empty values... did I miss something?

Thanks in advance,
Regards,
Sylvain
