Announcing the AFM G5 Instrument Pack!

Recommended Posts

@Coop

The issue might also be caused by my system. I am running 7 screens with 2 videocards and my current x-plane is filled up with plugins. I will do some more testing and report back.

Just flew my first ILS with the AFM G5 and it is really nice. However I am missing features that I really hope that will be added in the next versions. I am sure you have a shortlist of features to be added otherwise I will be happy to supply one :D

I really hope that development will continue for this instrument so that it will be a must have for x-plane. This tiny instrument has a lot more functionality than one would think at first sight.

The issue with the screen edge being cut off is due to the G5 being rendered at a resolution too high for the panel.png texture of the aircraft. 

We are open to all feature requests! We have a list we are going through now, but feel free to add your own here: https://afms.im/fReq (then I can link you to the features so I can keep you updated on progress, etc.)

In the last screenshot it shows both PDF A and PFD B at the same time. Wouldn't both be affected by the same panel.png? On A I can either display the full horizon or HSI. On the same moment B only gives either half the horizon or half the HSI. I will do some more testing tomorrow to see if I can pinpoint the issue.

Great! I will have a good look at it and will make some requests after testing!

It appears that PFD B is going beyond the edge of Panel.png so some of the G5 fits, while the rest doesn't.

V-speed flags are currently not integrated, but it is a feature we are considering! It should also be feasible to integrate as the plugin currently is via the adjustable texture for the tape.
