Hi again,

@Crunchmeister mentioned the Generic ambient light dimmer instrument. I installed that, and it works great! Thank you for that!
It sends the current daylight value and I use it now for the PMDG 737 overhead instruments I made. Below two new ones are included. And Generator switches is updated.

The fuel temperature gauge may show a wong value. Lvar L:switch_57_73X (I have assumed it is in Fahrenheit) may be insufficient here. I found no better one.

For the overhead instruments:
Illumination control is per user property and when "Dial" is selected per light dials in the cockpit, captain side left of the FMC.
If Real is selected, you must also install the Generic - Ambient light dimmer instrument .
And also when "Real" is selected use overhead dome switch for the amount of artificial light.

Hi,

going on with my epic project. Here is the bleed switches instrument. Lighting is configurable as explained before.

A friend told me, the preview was missing for the fuel pump switches instrument. So here it is once more.

I shared a link to this thread over on the Simstrumentation Discord server so that people looking for 737 instruments can come here.

Good work, good sir. I'm sure you'll make folks quite happy with this.

Hello 737 pilots,

I continued working on the PMDG instruments. They have a different maturity level so to speak. In total it is 19 instruments.
I am currently working out the best way to organize the instruments in seperate panels. Here is my status:

Annunciators: buttons working, but not all lights yet due to missing Lvars from PMDG

System annunciator panels:
working, with maybe some differences to real aircraft due to missing Lvars from PMDG:

Radios:
working, but without automatic daylight/nightlight:
- ADF
- COM
- NAV
- Transponder

Overhead:
Working but with a different look:
- APU and engine start
- APU EGT gauge

Overhead
Working, not tested from many people. Daylight automatic when Generic Ambient Light Dimmer instrument is loaded:
- Anti-Ice
- Bleed Switches
- Doors Lights
- Flight Control
- Fuel Pump Switches
- Generator Switches
- Hydraulics Switches
- Pitot and Window Heat
- Standby Power

Overhead aft: same lighting options
- IRS Select Mode

Please feel free to try everything and let me know. No commercial use allowed.

Thank you for the great gauges!

One thing:

Somehow the three annunciators don't work on my PMDG 737-800 BCF
A/P - A/T FMC (P/RST)

I can press them but the lights or not showing on the gauges.
Tried also with the all lights test and the annunciator test.

I downloaded them from your last post.

Gr.

Robert
