• 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 VOR1 is not ILS

As I dig deeper and deeper into the Asobo A320 code to understand how all this works, I noticed that VOR1 and ILS are different in this A320. In fs9/FSX/P3D, the ILS frequency was set by setting VOR1 frequency, so ILS and VOR1 was not independent. In MSFS, you can set a frequency for the ILS and another frequency for VOR1 and each shows its own information, it works perfect.

Here is an example with ILS set to 110.7 and VOR1 set to 117.05 at the same time:


My problem is that I couldn't figure out how Asobo did this. I couldn't find what variables they used for this, SimVars or others.
I struggle in understanding their code but usually I can find the way they use the sim variables, but not this time...

Any help is greatly welcome.

That's a possibility, I think they did this, and my question is: how can we have access to that system for our own add-ons?
I can't believe they develop something without giving access to it :)
