• 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.

FS2004 Push back gauge

I'm trying to make an airport specific push back gauge. So far I have managed to make the pushback usign the
Code:
<Click Event="TOGGLE_PUSHBACK" />
How can I make the plane turn at the end of the push?

Thank you in advance
 
Also the command
Code:
<Click> (&gt;K:TOGGLE_PUSHBACK) </Click>
doesn't work with pushback Event. Works fine with some other ones like open door or similar.

The "push" will never end until told to do so...

Once pushback is initiated, the a/c will continue to move until the sim receives another command. When you wish to initiate a "turn," you need to send one of the following key_events:

Code:
<Click Event="SELECT_1" /> <!-- turn left -->
<Click Event="SELECT_2" /> <!-- turn right -->
After one of the above is triggered, the a/c will continue to move for approximately 1/2 of its length, then begin the commanded turn.

Should you change the viewpoint during the pushback, or issue any other command than one of the above, you will lose control over the pushback sequence.

Several years ago, an XML gauge was released that accomplishes this "automatic pushback." It is available at both flightsim.com and avsim.com.

Bill,

thank you very much for your reply. I have downloaded the xml pushback gauge, but I couldn't crack on how it's performing the turns. I would be satisfied on using the "1" and "2" method. Only thing I don't know is, is it allowed to use more than one <Click> function in the same gauge?

Thank you once more for your reply.

Yes, provided each <Click> area has it's own defined area on the background bitmap, and those areas don't overlap...
