FS2020 SimEvents

#1 Post by auditdata » Sun May 09, 2021 6:29 pm

Hi,
I have this working so know it connects and events are passed.

Code: Select all

fs2020_event("LANDING_LIGHTS_TOGGLE")
Correctly I can see the landing light switch toggle in the C172
However nothing seems to change in the view using the following

Code: Select all

fs2020_event("VIEW_RIGHT")
Would you expect the cockpit view to move right?
None of the view SimEvents seem to do anything.
Am I misunderstanding this?

As is mentioned quite a lot of times here on the forums: a lot of things FS2020 do not work or do not work as expected. They always say that they're gonna fix it, but for now they seem to be more focused on scenery, and certainly not on cockpit builders.

Thanks Ralf, you would think in their table of events they would have a column that said if it was implemented or not.
Save us all some time.

Hello Clive,
I am just wondering if this is supposedly for a custom view (graphic) with transparency - as opposed to a generic - 'change the view to' ? - as a similar thing - I think ? was in FSX ? //// or, as Ralph say, it is simply not working.
I cannot even find a list of fs2020 'events' online that are not, in some way, related to, and bastardised by some custom work around(s) by 3rd party companies that will cause major trauma ahead due to complete lack of a standard convention..
If the event is simply 'view_right' with no additional parameters, then it may well be SUPPOSED to emulate a joystick hat switch 3 o'clock position etc, which it doesn't seem to from what you say.
FS2020 promised 'to deliver the earth' .... but apart from nice graphics in specialised and limited areas, it seems to be a huge disappointment with a very visible lack of support.
Mind you. Cockpit builders are probably so far down the list of priorities for them that they simply do not care too much. Give it a few years more, maybe 5....

I think this is more likely to be correct rather than it not working at all.
Thanks

G1000 events for example don't work either. I'm not sure about specific events like the views. You might have to check their forums.
