Navigation data functions for ATIS and other

Hi there, I have started on an instrument getting navigation data using the API functions nav_get() and nav_get_nearest(). My main question is: where do the data come from? I have a pretty recent AIRAC cycle, but do not get fully correct ATIS frequencies from the navigation data functions. I managed...

Save situation

Hi, I used to have a button on my panel, saving the flight/situation. I found no direct solution for that in Airmanager. Instead I found, I can generate an X-Plane command per FlyWithLua Script. And then have Airmanager call that command ("FlyWithLua/save_this_situation") when pressing a button on a...

Re: Help for Carenado Saab 340B instruments

Hi all,

yes I have the X-Plane Carenado S340B aircraft. There is a directory named SASL3_Tbient, if I look deeper into it I see files ending .secured.
So no, I will not try any re-engineering.

Thank you
Detlef

Re: Help for Carenado Saab 340B instruments

I haven't been following this closely. But is it not possible to mimic some data (maybe already suggested)? Based on outside temperature, torque, etc... Hi Ralph, I am pretty sure that would be possible. Jacques had suggested it also. It takes a deeper understanding of what the prop pressure and te...

Re: Help for Carenado Saab 340B instruments

Just a short update. Carenado closed my ticket without any additional message. I have sent my support satisfaction survey accordingly, also saying I will not buy other Carenado aircrafts because it is a too big a risk for me. Here even without modifying the product I got no help. For me this issue i...

Re: Help for Carenado Saab 340B instruments

Yes, I also found it weird that the transmission Datarefs seemed to be single values and not an array of values based per engine as usual. I think in Laminar’s mind the transmission is for helicopters with two turbines on a single transmission shaft. From videos I saw of the real SAAB 340 startup, ...

Re: Help for Carenado Saab 340B instruments

Have you tried: sim/cockpit2/transmissions/indicators/oil_temperature float Transmission oil temperature. Units are the same as the max oil temperature in acf sim/cockpit2/transmissions/indicators/oil_pressure float Transmission oil_pressure I have the feeling that these two values should yield som...

Re: Help for Carenado Saab 340B instruments

Jacques, thank you for your suggestions. I have tried a lot of course, but will do so with your named datarefs, in case I overlooked them. Tomorrow I cannot work on this but after that. There are not that many Thranda specific datarefs. Many were just standard X-Plane datarefs, as you say. Tony, rig...

Re: Help for Carenado Saab 340B instruments

Hello all, for the 25 or so instruments I made for the Carenado S340B, I have found all datarefs I needed, except this: I cannot find the correct datarefs for one gauge. The gauge shows PROP pressure and OIL temperature. I'd appreciate any help here. I asked Carenado support in an official ticket. T...
