• 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 How to animate a continuous flap

I'm developing an aircraft having a continuous flap, that is pushing down the lever the flaps goes down until the lever is no more pushed (up to a maximum angle of X), the same (in the opposite direction) when the lever is pulled up (up to the minum angle of 0)

I have not found any standard ASOBO template allowing it

How to implement this behaviour ?

Unless Asobo have changed the base code, you can't do it. There is a KEY_FLAPS_SET,x event (where x = value between 0 and 16384) which has never worked.
ASOBO_GT_Anim is needed for anything the stock templates don't do. It sounds like you have 3 things to do - animate the flaps and lever, add the interaction (drag?) to the lever, find a way to have MSFS understand continuous flaps. 1 & 2 are trivial, for 3 your fallback is to set 20 flap positions and careful lag on the animation.
