  1. There is sim/cockpit/autopilot/vertical_velocity which is a writable float dataref for "Vertical speed to hold". I assume this is the default X-Plane dataref for vertical speed, but it's ignored by the IXEG. I therefore also assume that the IXEG is using it's own internal "dataref" which is not exposed to the outside world. I think this is one for Tom to have a look at.
  2. It would certainly be nice to have a dataref which will indicate when the throttle servos are active or not. I built a prototype motorised throttle (i.e. pieces of wood and lots of wires and stuff) which uses normal model airplane servos. As I don't have a slip clutch I need to know when the actual servos in the sim is driving the throttle levers so I can switch off my servos whenever the real servos are not active... like when AT ARM in white is shown.
  3. This should be fairly easy to implement as X-Plane already provides a built-in command to pause (and un-pause) the sim. So as long as you have the TOD position you can just continuously calculate the distance from the aircraft to TOD and once you're say <5Nm from TOD you pause the sim by calling XPLMCommandOnce(XPLMFindCommand("sim/operation/pause_toggle"));
  4. It will work when you use a Lua script to assign your joystick axis value to the TBM park brake manipulator dataref. Remember that you still need to apply full brakes before setting the parking brake as per the real aircraft. @Goran_M Just something that I've noticed whilst testing this... if you rotate the park brake knob fully clockwise without applying full brakes then you will get the master warning and PARK BRAKE annunciation. The plane will start moving which is to be expected, but now if you apply full brakes after the knob was turned fully clockwise the park brake will sudde
  5. I assume with all the visual changes coming with the new release that an updated paintkit should follow...

  11. Hi Antonio, No problem... as a matter of fact I don't understand a word of French. My name might be French but that's about it.
  12. Hi Antonio, For some reason the default commands to reset master caution and warning do not work when invoked from scripts. You have to execute the command with the command_begin and command_end methods, but you also need to add a tiny delay between the 2 calls for this to work. For most scripting tools this is not so straightforward. So I have created a workaround which is a FlyWithLua script that will add 2 custom commands which will use the command_begin and command_end methods on the standard reset master caution and warning commands, with a 0.1 second delay (non-blocking) betwee
