• 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.

run animation upon brake

Hi
why this doesn't work?

<!-- Animation event triggered by the simulation event -->
<AnimationEvent EventName="brakes" AnimationName="raiseArm">
<Time>0</Time> <!-- Start animation immediately when event occurs -->
<IsNormalPlayback>True</IsNormalPlayback> <!-- Play animation normally -->
</AnimationEvent>
</Animations>

Thanks for help. The animation is Blender and works ok, but choppy alike this:

<UseTemplate Name="ASOBO_GT_Anim">
<ANIM_CODE>(L:VARIABLE_NAME, Percent) 0.001 *</ANIM_CODE>
<ANIM_NAME>neck</ANIM_NAME>
<ANIM_LENGTH>70</ANIM_LENGTH>
</UseTemplate>
 
A few things, it looks like the upper snippet is for running in Simconnect, it would probably be good to format for legibility. I do not know that there is an event called "brakes," I know that there are SimVars that correspond to various brake situations. Down to the xml, It looks like you're trying to control animation playback speed with the percent modifier, pretty sure that's what it's for, but so many decimal places might be an issue. I'd try variants of the ANIM_LAG control. Also, you are reading a Lvar called "VARIABLE_NAME," which really looks like a placeholder ChatGPT would apply. You can freely name your local variables, but there would also have to be a component in your xml that defines that variable as a condition of braking. It would need to include an argument similar in function to this:
<ANIM_CODE>(L:VARIABLE_NAME) if{ 100 } els{ 0 }</ANIM_CODE>

In the upper code, you are going directly for an animation named "raiseArm." In the xml code, you are calling an animation named "neck," that is an apparent mismatch.
