• 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 Tiger Moth (Released)

Bad things happen when you run out of oil.

I've co-opted the new MSFS fuel system to incorporate oil consumption. You can set the rate at which a particular fuel line operates so you can control how much oil is consumed. You need to do a bit of fiddling with the fuel valves and what not but once you have it setup you can set up a engine failure if the oil level drops too much.

I've also used WASM gauge to save the fuel and oil levels and reinject them into the plane when it loads so the levels can be persistent from one flight to the next if the user wishes.

Also, did you know a Tiger Moth can keep running at full throttle for about 13 seconds after turning off the fuel? As the fuel cutoff is at the bottom of the tank there is still a lot of fuel in the lines and this can keep the engine running long after the fuel has been cutoff. This has been simulated using the new MSFS fuel system as you can set the volume of the fuel lines.

I just need to delete the Oil section from the Payload section as it's now part of the Fuel system.

Hi,
As far as I'm concerned, in my current plane (Canso PBY-5A), I also have an oil consumption to manage. I'm thinking of doing it differently via a javascript that would calculate the oil consumption and pass it on to the remaining oil volume. The management of variables and their persistence would also be done by javascript.
I don't know WASM and the docs to get started in it aren't around :confused: .

Finalising the textures and cleaning them up/getting them consistent. Unfortunately there is not a lot I can do about the light bleed at the base of the cockpit. I don't have the room necessary to fix it (you need to run the parts past where they would normally join). That's what happens when your exterior skin is only about 5mm thick.

Screenshots are now thumbnails because the 4k pictures are usually over 1mb.

Thank You for the update! I dont know that SDK of MSFS will allow it but can we will have the same start engine procedures like in P3D (so from external view, checking engine, hands on the propeller etc)?

Yes, the engine start will be the same. There's three ways to start, autostart (CTRL+E to just start instantly), easy start (where priming isn't necessary) and hard start where you have to prime the engine properly and follow the procedures. The camera views are interior instrument camera views but just placed outside the cockpit so it's actually easier to switch around (as long as you have key assignments to switch those views). I am hoping to make a video of the engine start procedure at some point (it can take a while for Asobo to process submissions so I'd have time after submitting the aircraft to do videos).

Can wait for your MSFS Tiger Moth! I own and fly a real 1929 American-built, original DH.60GM Gipsy Moth (NC236K). She flies as sweet as she looks! I've found the DH.82 Tiger Moth also flies the same. I'm surely looking forward to your future MSFS release!

Best, Gary S.

Hello Anthony. Any news? How it works after SU10? Everything as it was :) ?

I'm pleased to inform you that the Tiger Moth for MSFS is now available. At the moment it is just through FastSpring and Sendowl but the Simmarket and Just Flight links should become available soon (the information has been sent to those companies, they just need to add them to their product pages).
