• 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.

Fire Extinguish gauge for 4 engine propeller aircraft

Hi dear reader,

I am struggling to get working fire extinguisher gauges for a 4 engine propeller aircraft in Prepar3D v4.5
It is for Jens Boden Kristensen's Douglas C-124 converted for native FSX by LLS.
I have been transferring working code in the Boeing 707 by FSND (aka Alrot)
However the code is not working for the prop aircraft. (also not in FSX)
Also I did not find a 4 engine prop aircraft with working fire extinguish XML code, so here I am.
So I am asking myself could it be that something has to be defined (like fire bottles) in the
aircraft.cfg or in the interior or normal mdl file?
Anyone who can and will clarify on this matter I'd be most thankful.

I also will paste below my code, maybe I have missed something.
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Gauge Name="ENG1_Fire_Light" Version="1.1">


    <Image Name="ENG_Fire_Warning_OFF.bmp" Transparent="True" ImageSizes="38,38"/>


        <Element>   
        <Visible>(A:ENG ON FIRE:1, bool) (L:Eng_Fire_Test, bool) || (A:CIRCUIT GENERAL PANEL ON, bool) &amp;&amp; </Visible>
             <Image Name="ENG_Fire_Warning_ON.bmp" Transparent="True" Bright="Yes" />
        </Element>
    
    <Element>
        <Visible>(L:ENG1_FirePressed, bool) 1 == (A:ENG ON FIRE:1, bool) 1 == &amp;&amp; </Visible>
             <Image Name="ENG_Fire_Warning_ON2.bmp" Transparent="True" Bright="Yes" />
        </Element>


    <Element><Select>
        <Value>    
            (A:ENG ON FIRE:1, bool) 0 ==
            (L:ENG1_FirePressed, bool) 1 == &amp;&amp;
            (A:GENERAL ENG COMBUSTION:1, bool) 0 == &amp;&amp;
            (A:TURB ENG CORRECTED N2:1, Percent) 12 &lt; &amp;&amp;
            if{   
                0 (&gt;L:ENG1_FirePressed, bool)
                1 (&gt;L:ENG1_Restart, bool)
            }
        </Value>
        </Select>
    </Element>



        <Mouse>

            if{

                (&gt;K:TOGGLE_FUEL_VALVE_ENG1)
                (A:GENERAL ENG FUEL PUMP SWITCH:1, bool) ! if{ (&gt;K:TOGGLE_ELECT_FUEL_PUMP1) }
                (&gt;K:TOGGLE_PRIMER1)
                (&gt;K:TOGGLE_STARTER1)
            }
        </Click>
        <Tooltip>Press when ENG1 Fire</Tooltip>
    </Mouse>
</Gauge>

The code part 0 (&gt;K:COWLFLAP1_SET) ... (&gt;K:MAGNETO1_OFF) in the
if (A:ENG ON FIRE:1, bool) 1 == part was added for the prop aircraft.

Again, many thanks in advance for the one(s) who can point me into the right direction.
 
You can have a look at the "FSX Douglas C-47 Skytrain V2" by Manfred Jahn + Team.
The C-47v2 has a fire warning and extinguishing system.

There are only two motors, but the system can certainly be expanded to four motors.

Okay I will do that and report back.
Thank you, Bushpilot.
