Adding a function to create datarefs from AM might be quite usefull, will look into that. Might take a while though.

Serious, create custom datarefs.

This would be a game changer for us. Encourage you to look into it Corjan.

Re: static data load(): PATH limited to resource folder ONLY?

@Corjan

I am going to drop of some files for you to look at. You can see that access to these files would facilitate GPWS, WXR,TCAS and other airport data. These files reside in the AirFrame

Re: static data load(): PATH limited to resource folder ONLY?

Sorry Corjan I did not mean to go OT I thought it was on topic. When you said access file paths. Is Synthetic vision within an AirFrame not done that way? Where is the data retrieved from? It would seem Xplane. I don't know. Access to this database would be nice. "Here you can see a reproduction of ...

Re: static data load(): PATH limited to resource folder ONLY?

Hi,

When I talk about synthetic vision I am referring to this.

Would SI try and do custom synthetic vision or tap into AirFrame data?

Re: static data load(): PATH limited to resource folder ONLY?

Corjan To be honest, I do not think perusing weather data at this stage regarding Xplane is a wise decision. XP12 weather we believe, is going to be enhanced to align with FS2020 so perhaps look at it when XP12 comes out. Along with lightning strikes so that storm scope instruments can be made. Keith

Re: xpl_command "ONCE" & "PRESS"?

@Keith Baxter You can always use the workaround I exposed in my previous posts, to emulate the Command Pressed effect: Either: -a button with a Xpl_command BEGIN on pressed() state and an xpl_command END on the released state or - send a BEGIN normally, followed by the use of a timer to trigger the...

Re: static data load(): PATH limited to resource folder ONLY?

Corjan, Peeps are moving to the better modeled AirFrames that provide added features like memory storing to text files, synthetic vision and other custom instruments that the sim does not cater for. I would not expect AM to have a library for each and every variant. I will think about all the sim op...

Re: static data load(): PATH limited to resource folder ONLY?

But any instrument shouldn't rely on anything but itself and Air Manager. If that is not enforced, there is no way to be able to run instrument on multiple platforms. Corjan Hmm.. My thoughts Corjan. Most of us only run our instruments on ONE platform. Majority of these requests stem from instrumen...
