The hybrid-style altimeter which has analog needles and digit display are always my favorite. While flying the Aerosoft DHC-6 lately, I noticed that the “thousand” and “10-thousand” digits on the altimeter are not simply linear scrolling according to height. The numbers start to scroll up or down to the next value only from the last “50” and “500” at every hundred and thousand segment respectively.
I then thought it would be fun to add this little effect to the DHC-6 altimeter as such, although I tend to prefer the flipping style as it is more precise and easier to read.
So here’s the updated DHC-6 altimeter. The Clean Version with the new scrolling effect is on the left, and the Extended Version with the flipping design is on the right. Continue reading
The VOR2 on the C152 and C172 used to be function and look differently from each other and from the Multi-shared VOR1 when MSFS was launched. However, they’ve got changed over the last two years and now become identical to each other and look the same as the VOR1 after the recent 184.108.40.206 update.
The VOR2 in the C152 and C172 FIP series are therefore united as one and moved to the Multi-Shared Gauges category just like the VOR1.
In other words, users can use the new MS VOR2 on both C152 and C172 now, and Continue reading
Due to the brightness of the Vref marks on the G5 PFD Airspeed Scale is a bit overwhelming that causes distraction from the rest of the instrument, the Vref marks have been dimmed a little to restore the balance of the instrument as a whole.
Apology for the short update period since the last one 3 days ago. Anyway, download Links have been sent to all users already.
As there are quite some inquiries regarding the Cirrus SR22 airspeed scale for the GENERIC G5 PFD, it is therefore added as the third airspeed scale (C172, B58, SR22) coming as standard in the G5 PFD (both single- and dual-cue) R4 package now.
It can be called up by the “G5 Airspeed Switcher” utility after update.
With the SR22 3-Gauges Pack and the GENERIC G5 PFD+HSI, Continue reading
Due to the latest Generic G5 PFD v4 coming with an “Airspeed Switcher” utility to allow users to quickly switch among different Airspeed Scales for the aircraft being flown, a special MSFS GaugeSwitcher v11A, which embedded the Airspeed Switcher function, has been created for those Generic G5 PFD users who are using the GaugeSwitcher as well.
Except the extra PFD Airspeed Switcher function, the new v11A version works exactly the same as the current v11 in essence.
So, if you don’t have the Generic G5 PFD v4 in your setup, or you don’t run the Generic G5 PFD v4 in MSFS, you don’t really need this special edition. Continue reading
The FIP Gauges for Aerosoft’s DHC-6 Twin Otter are done and released.
Will schedule to work on the Engine Cluster for the aircraft soon. Continue reading
Over the years, I got many requests for a standalone digital clock on the Logitech FIP (Flight Instrument Panel). I didn’t do it because the Logitech FIP plugins doesn’t support FT (Flight Time) and ET (Elapse Time) functions for one reason. Moreover, I already added the Local Time and Universal Time option on all Airspeed Indicators I developed.
But there are still some friends expressed that they don’t mind the skipping of the FT and ET functions so as to complete their cockpit setup. So here comes the digital clock that are based on Davtron’s M803.
Besides the Universal Time and Local Time, the clock displays OAT in Celsius (C) and Voltage in Ohm’s Law symbol E (instead of V) as used on the M803. Continue reading
The GENERIC G5 PFD R4 is ready at last. This major update includes a lot of enhancements and revisions with many bug fixes and new features.
For instance, besides its appearance nows resembles more to the latest Garmin G5, Vrefs info (reference speeds) based on real aircraft are added as an option to the Airspeed Scales as well.
Here’s a quick video showing both single-cue and dual-cue PFD running with the HSI on the C172 Skyhawk in MSFS.
Furthermore, a new utility called “G5 Airspeed Switcher” is also included to the instrument pack so that users can quickly switch among different Airspeed Scales to match with the aircraft being flown with the G5 PFD.
However, similar to the G5 HSI R4, this new PFD R4 Continue reading
The DHC-6 Twin Otter by Aerosoft was one of my favorite in P3D and it continues to be the same in MSFS.
Initially I didn’t have plan to do gauges for the aircraft until mid-year. But I have changed my mind to work on them after receiving some inquires and especially I’ve flown it for nearly a week.
The first stage is to work on the nine (9) analog gauges as shown above,
