• 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.

    Hi Michael My panel is in FSX , however I would guess that the parameter will work in FS2004 . note that the :01 is for engine number one , for other engines use :02 :03 :04 ..... try the parameter as a test and do a flight to verify its function . Notice that I set each throttle to...

    MSFS Storing time in a local variable

    I'm not familiar with JavaScript , however following observations might be worth mentioning , {1} I presume that "SimVar.GetSimVarValue" would come first , then " SimVar.SetSimVarValue" , so you would be getting the current active time value , then setting an instantaneous frozen time...

    String loop causing index misnumbering

    As far as I know there is not a limit on the number of waypoints that one can use . In my case it is limited to 100 because I only make a provision for 2 characters for the Flight plan INDEX number , resulting in 00 plus 99 = 100 . If I allowed 3 characters I would have 000 plus 999 = 1000...

    FSX Angle of Attack 2D Guage

    Hi Adino Initially I tried to model the F-111 indexer which has the Onspeed at an AoA of 10 degrees , however flying the 2D panel at 10 degrees resulted in the runway being hidden out of sight below the panel , so I kept reducing it until the Onspeed was at 8.1 degrees AoA , then I could see...

    FSX Angle of Attack 2D Guage

    Ran some tests in a different aircraft . The STALL ALPHA returned a fixed value of 15.99 degrees . However the Stall light did not start illuminating until the Angle of Attack reached a value of 20.28 degrees , note the Stall light variable in attached shot . I suspect that your " Stall warning...

    FSX Angle of Attack 2D Guage

    This is an odd line <Script>(A:INCIDENCE ALPHA, number) (A:STALL ALPHA, number) / abs</Script> it is a Ratio of , Angle of Attack divided by Stall angle , so at the moment of stall it returns a value of 1 . Basically the gauge is graphically telling you how close to the classic stall you are...
