PMDG 7373-700 FMC Overlay (FS2020)

#1 Post by Detlef »

Hi all,

here is my Air Manager instrument for the PMDG 737-700. If it works for you I'll upload it "officially".

I know the checklists are not in the original Boeing FMC. But then, you fly single pilot here.
You can check and uncheck the items in the lists and switch easily between screens.
You can also customize them in the lua file. They are basically plain text strings.


From the lua file comments:
FS2020 overlay for the Flight Management Computer FMC of the PMDG 737-700 aircraft.
Popout the FMC in the Aircraft and move it below this frame.

Special features:

- Checklist: Edit item texts in lua source code (see AddList() function calls) for your needs.
Brightness +/- buttons are substituted by checklist +/-.

Day and night illumination depending on brightness potentiometers in the pilot main panel
Checklist depending on user parameter Checklists

User property: ("Checklists", "Real,Extended", "Real", "Select Checklists"))
User property: ("Illumination","Day,Night,Dial","Day","Select fix or left forward panel dial controlled illumination"))

Use these dials in the original cockpit for illumination control, or the user prop setting Day or Night:

Just did a quick run - works as expected. I had the IXEG and Fenix "swallow" some key inputs (see https://siminnovations.com/forums/viewt ... 7&start=10) ,
but with the PMDG it works reliable. Very good - thanks!

Thank you for your feedback!
I have submitted the instrument today. I am not sure when it will appear in the instruments list for everyone to download.
