vSpeed callouts for IXEG 733 - LUA Script

Recommended Posts

Hello Captains!

I made a simple LUA-script for v-speed callouts.
It includes callouts for 80 knots, V1, Vr, V2 (V2 is optional) and positiv rate / gear up.

The script is tested on X-Plane 10.51 and X-Plane 11 on Windows 10.

Feel free to leave a comment if you liked the script (or not) :) 

Requirement:
- You will need FlyWithLua installed - http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/17468-flywithlua-for-xp9-and-xp10/

Installation:
- Unzip the files in [X-Plane]\Resources\plugins\FlyWithLua\Scripts

You should get a structure something like this.

Settings:
Edit the IXEG_vSpeed.lua for the settings. 

Set to true to enable "V2" callout and false to disable. true and false have to be written with lowercase letters.
Enable_V2 = false

Set to true to enable "Positive rate/Gear up" callout and false to disable. true and false have to be written with lowercase letters.
EnablePosGearUp = true

Sync the First Officers speedbugs with what you set on Captain side. Default = false. true and false have to be written with lowercase letters.
SyncSpeedBugs = false

Change "SoundLevel" to adjust volume for the callouts. Adjust between 0.10 min - 1.00 max (default 0.55)
SoundLevel = 0.55
 

How to use:
This is how I use the bugs. It may not be correct compared to real procedures.

The required bugs you need to set for the call out to work is Bug_2 to V1 speed, Bug_3 to Vr speed, and set the MCP speed to V2 (if you use V2 callout).
You can set the other bugs to whatever you prefere.

Demonstration:

 

Known bugs/limitations:
- Speed bugs can only be set on Captains side.

Tom, just a question. Using latest XP10 and updated FlyWithLua to 2.4.4.b, installed the IXEG script I see a sentence in the upper right corner of the display sayins "Lua Stopped"

What's wrong?

Thanks

Thanks for your input @Defiance_co

I have been reading around and it looks like V2 isen't called out in normal operations. More used in the older days with older aircrafts.

Maybe @Litjan or someone with knowledege on this can come with some input also.

Heya Tom,

Well you're kinda thinking along my lines

I think Jan if he sees this might chirp in, afterall, himself and i think for certain one other forum user maybe two more actually, did fly the bird

So Jan/Their input would just about seal the deal one way or another

Take Care

Have Fun

Tony

well done.
What do you think about adding the "thrust set" callout?

I dont know. I dont want the script to be too complex. But I could maybe add it as an option and make it default disabled.

Would like the thrust set option, or takeoff power set?  As long as it's set disable by default then can only be positive for those that want it :)

Maybe a silly question, can the sounds be made stereo, just now they are only in my right earpiece.

Im looking at the "thrust set" option, and I think I got the datarefs I need for it. But need to work a bit more with it.

About the sounds, its intended that the sound comes from the right. But maybe it is a bit overdone. Will look at it :)

Ok, good to know.  Maybe slightly louder in the right would be enough.  I have my volume loud (IGEX sounds are awesome) so any single channel sound makes you jump out your seat a bit :)

 

If my wish is in the minority, it's fine to leave as is.

New version up. Test if the sounds are better for you :)

Hi

Tested and much better for me now.  Thanks for you work.

Is there a way for the user to adjust the volume, I'm interested to see how they sound when they are a bit quieter.

 

Cheers

Iain
