  • Permission from the aircraft's developer has been obtained to use the art files from the aircraft's 3D panel for Air Manager purposes
  • Due to the way the developer has had to "fudge" some of the gauge values to better represent real life, I am unable to match the exact position of all gauges indications to that of their corresponding 3D cockpit gauge. I have elected to ensure that zero and redline are accurately represented at the expense of values outside of that, however most gauge readings should be close enough to work with. In addition, the developer has implemented a needle movement delay that I have not replicated as of yet. You may see 3D cockpit gauges respond more slowly than the AM representation.
COMPLETE:
-N2/NR
-Torque
-NG
-MGT
-Engine oil
-Hydraulic oil
-Transmission oil
-Ammeter
-Fuel gauge
-Airspeed Indicator

TODO:

Stretch goals:
-Removable bezel for each instrument
-Annunciator Panel

Great! I’ll definitely have to try out the Cabri MLI and I may have to pick your brain later on how to do the annunciator panel

Most gauges have been refactored and updated for Cowansim Bell 222UT v2.20

Todo list (eventually):
-Add support for 222B version. I’m unable to test for that since I don’t own it, and as far as I can tell, it uses slightly different data refs.
-Clean up gauges to be round and with removable bezel

If anyone uses these gauges and has the 222B, I’d love to have someone help me by beta testing.
