• 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 Reading traffic information

    Thank you for taking care of my question. The console is OK, the problem was somewhere else and it has been solved. It was because of a listener registration that was missing. My TCAS now works fine.

    Prevent keys presses from reaching the sim

    I don't know how to do this and I am interested because I would like to be able to enter FMC data using the keyboard. It seems that TAP Designs successfully did it for their A220, maybe we should ask them :) See this video: [EDIT] You can directly go to 2'55, you will see he enters data in the...

    MSFS GetGameVarValue

    You're probably right Geoff, I am part of these "lazy" pilots who press B when the altimeter is wrong, so I never saw this bug. Next time I will pay more attention and will adjust the baro manually. When you say it is wrong, do you think it can only be fixed by Asobo in the sim code itself? If...

    MSFS GetGameVarValue

    Geoff, I am not sure I understand what you want to do here. As WarpD says, in MSFS you can have several altimeters with different barometric settings, so they will show different values for the same actual altitude. Is it what you want? If so, no need to change the altitude indicator value. Now...

    MSFS GetGameVarValue

    Indeed, SetGameVarValue is supposed to let you set a value, just like Get/SetSImVarValue. Now you need to check if it works, because these variables may be read-only. Only a quick test will let you know, and I would be happy to know the result of that test :)

    MSFS Reading traffic information

    I am trying to read traffic information from MSFS and I use the Coherent.call("GET_AIR_TRAFFIC") that is used by Asobo and all mods. As I am not very familiar with using Promises in JavaScript, I wrote a very simple code to test it was OK, something like this: As you see, it is extremely...

    MSFS Struggling with Moving Map

    I have been scratching my head for days and days before understanding the system is broken... I did the same test with the A32NX from FBW and it has exactly the same problem: if you switch on the airport display on the ND (pressing the ARPT button) with a range of 10 NM, you will see some...

    MSFS Struggling with Moving Map

    I am now struggling for displaying navaids on my ND, the airports, VORs, NDB, intersections that are around my aircraft according to the ND range. I used the code in NearestWaypoints.js and it works perfect and MUCH faster than in FSX, this is good. The problem I have is when I request a type of...

    MSFS Where is the code for "aircraft logic"?

    You're right, this is the conclusion I came to as well. Nevertheless I regret this because some systems are good but not perfect, and tweaking them would be easier that redevelop them all. Now we know what we have to do as developers :)

    MSFS Where is the code for "aircraft logic"?

    I agree with you, I also found the way the flaps positions are defined in the JS code, with 2 possibles positions (1 and 1+F) for a single handle position (1). But this does not explain the automatic retraction of flaps. Nevertheless, the second part of your post perfectly answers my question...

    MSFS Sounds in MSFS Gauges

    I join this interesting discussion for another question: I could successfully play a sound from my instrument as soon as it was defined as an avionic sound (in the <AvionicSound> section of the sound.xml file). But there are other sounds I would like to play and they are not defined as avionic...

    MSFS Where is the code for "aircraft logic"?

    No, I didn't find any code 😕 I can understand the FBW code that provides flight envelope protection is embedded in the sim itself. It is activated if the fly_by_wire parameter is set to 1 in the flight_model.cfg file. It was already like this in FSX, I had forgotten this when I posted my...

    MSFS Where is the code for "aircraft logic"?

    Yes, I have just seen this, it should do the trick. I will test this and let you know. [EDIT] I confirm, it works, this line in the model.cfg file determines if fly by wire is used or not with the aircraft. Thank you Prepar3DGuy, and thank you Romain if you read this, you both had the right...

    MSFS Where is the code for "aircraft logic"?

    I have just downloaded 2 freeware planes: the A330 by Project Mega Pack that has its own virtual cockpit and an A380 that uses the A320 Neo VC. The A330 has a fly by wire system, which is the A320 system, and the A380 doesn't. So does the sim know when to make the fly by wire active or not? I...

    MSFS Where is the code for "aircraft logic"?

    Thanks for your answer. My question was about the tweaking the default A320 Neo. I know the excellent work you are doing on the A32NX, my goal is to know if the default A320 Neo fly by wire and other systems can be tweaked and if it can be reused for another Airbus aircraft. You confirm what I...
