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.

The airplane I use in X-Plane only has a 2D model cockpit. I've created a G5-like EFIS display but would really like to use the AFM G5. Can I add G5s to a 2D cockpit?

 

Jim

G5s can be rendered onto the 2D cockpit as just the screen, or popup windows can be located and used for them instead. Right now these features are in the 1.1.0 beta, PM me for access if you decide to use the G5.

Hello everybody,
I'm totally not an expert about panels, but I would ask if it is possible to install the AFM  G5 Instrument pack in the SimCoders Carenado C210 Centurion.

Thank you so much

You can have the G5's in any aircraft in the 2D popup mode.

If you want 3D integration then the ideal way is to ask the developer to do so. We'd be happy to provide a copy to any of these developer's who would like to do so.
