Re: Add airports/weather stations with active AWOS/ASOS/ATIS transmission for in flight weather briefings

You will want to start with SDK documentation on how to add facility data to the runtime database: http://www.prepar3d.com/SDKv4/LearningCenter.php Go to /World/Scenery for information on file formats, schema, and compiler. Scroll down to the Facility Data / Airport and COM section for information s...

Re: INC and DEC jumps by factor of 10

That is expected behavior that attempts to make setting certain gauges easier. For some inputs such as the heading bug, the system detects that you are rapidly clicking and assumes you want a big change. Click slower and you get the single increment. Without the larger jumps it takes a long time to ...

Re: TACAN navaids behaviour

None of the default aircraft is equipped with a true TACAN receiver. Nor does the navaid database include any TACAN-only stations. The SDK provides for the ability to implement these in private solutions. Any aircraft that display tacan are simply doing the translation into a conventional VOR. Hope ...

Re: getting wind forces and environmental conditions for external engine

The following methods in the IBaseObjectV400 interface should give you most of this information: virtual HRESULT GetSurfaceInformation (__out SurfaceInfoV400 &SurfaceInfo, __in const FXYZ *pvOffsetFeet) PURE virtual HRESULT GetWeatherInformation (__out WeatherInfoV400 &WeatherInfo) PURE Hope this he...

Re: Mathematical base of P3D for "Statement of Compliance"

There is no such document for the helicopters. The past document you mention was extremely high level, but much of it pertaining to systems and equations of motion would apply the same to helicopters. Airplane aerodynamic models tend to use a fairly standard method, but helicopter methodologies can ...

Re: Subsystem example trouble

This is unfortunately not supported yet with XML gauges due to the way gauges are loaded before the addon. This generally was designed for programmatic C++ interfacing, but we'll look at getting this completed.

Re: Carrier landing scenario

This is actually a problem with the carrier accelerating and turning to aggressively. It will be fixed in the next update.

Re: Content Errors

Pete, We would prefer that queries not be made that are invalid. The simple reason for this is that there is a performance overhead for each query. This error is posted at a low level in the aircraft, where it is impossible to know if the query originated from SimConnect, a gauge, or any other piece...

Re: Error in Payload station indexes (V4)

"PAYLOAD STATION COUNT" will give the largest valid index.

Re: Content Errors

Jim,

That is why Content Errors are turned off by default. Any sort of debugging capability can be expected to have an impact on performance.

Re: Content Errors

Pete,

Respectfully, I never mentioned FSUIPC. I simply said it does not occur with the base product, as far as I can tell. It is impossible for me to make a determination about FSUIPC.

PAYLOAD STATION NAME requires a 1-based index. 0, or no index, will result in the content error.

Re: Content Errors

Yes, this is a result of the crash fix mentioned above. Something is querying the aircraft variable "PAYLOAD STATION NAME" with an index of 0, which is invalid. As far as I can tell, nothing in the default Prepar3D product is making this call. Prior to the hotfix, this would result in an access viol...

Re: Windmilling needed or way around

It's entirely feasible to implement your own complete simulation and not use a .air file. My comments above assume you are using the Prepar3D core aircraft simulation and already have a .air file. If you have your own engine/propeller/thrust model, you can implement windmilling any way you like.
