• 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.

Get payload station names


I wonder if there's a way to get the names of the payload stations via simconnect.
I can request how many stations a given aircraft has and also the weight of each station. But in the aircraft.cfg there are names for each station. Like "Pilot", "Co-Pilot", "Baggage", etc...

Do I have to get it from the aircraft.cfg or is there a variable I can request using SC?

Edit: Never mind... I did it by loading the values from the aircraft.CFG as there's obviously no possibility to get it by simconnect request.
