ATR 72-500 is out !!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,I have today uploaded my ATR 72-500 to the Avsim library. It has virtual cockpit, 2D panels, custom gauges programmed to accurately match the real aircraft systems, night lighting, a simple virtual passenger cabin, custom sounds... Has been tested by real-world ATR pilots. This will be the last release of my ATR series. Werner Schott has produced a checklist for this aircraft and has kindly allowed me to include it in the package.It will take some time until it appears in the library listing. Enjoy it!

Yep its the 4 blade version, PLEASE say you will redo the props in the 4 blade because most of American Eagles were 4 bladed props and alot of others as well!

American Eagle flies both the -210 and -212A (-500) with the 4- and 6-bladed props. It would be nice to see this bird with the 4-bladed props, but I think Paco's exhausted with the ATR family right now. LOL. But who knows. :) We'll keep our fingers crossed. For now, we've got an awesome plane to have fun with. Happy trails everyone :DGeorge

Hi Paco,I look forward to using this new plane, just one question, what does this mean "for FS2002 Professional Edition (Works with limited functionality in standard edition)"Dan.

Hi,The Com2 radio will not work in the standard edition. The reason is that I programmed radios in xml language, MS did not provide a working variable for it. So, the Com2 radio used in the panel is the default King Air Com2 radio, which is only inlcuded in the Pro version.As far as I understand, the variable does exist if the gagues are programed in C, but if I had done that, then the aircraft would have been released by end of this year ;-) (the autopilot, made in C, has taken me more than one year). Xml language is much, much faster.PacoStultorum numerus infinitus est.

Paco,See my Socata TB20GT's .CAB file for examples of a working set of Bendix/King KX-155A COM1/NAV1 and COM2/NAV2 radios. Also included is a fully functional KMA70 Audio/Speaker control unit.Although there are several missing k_events in XML, there are 'fixes' and 'workarounds' for those issues. :)

So, the Com2 radio >>used in the panel is the default King Air Com2 radio, which >>is only inlcuded in the Pro version.Here is the XML code to program a COM2 radio. Note that the TOGGLE_AFTERBURNER commands simply trigger a sound event via the late Bill Morad's whm_xmlSound.gau and aren't necessary for operation... - - 0 (>K:COM_RADIO) 0 (>K:SELECT_2) 0 (>K:FREQUENCY_SWAP) 0 (>K:TOGGLE_AFTERBURNER1) 0- - Tune COM2 Whole Up0 (>K:TOGGLE_AFTERBURNER3) 0 (>K:COM_STBY_RADIO_WHOLE_INCREASE)- Tune COM2 Whole Down0 (>K:TOGGLE_AFTERBURNER3) 0 (>K:COM_STBY_RADIO_WHOLE_DECREASE)- Tune COM2 Fraction Up0 (>K:TOGGLE_AFTERBURNER3) 0 (>K:COM_STBY_RADIO_FRACT_INCREASE)- Tune COM2 Fraction Down0 (>K:TOGGLE_AFTERBURNER3) 0 (>K:COM_STBY_RADIO_FRACT_DECREASE)-

>Thanks a lot for the tip! You are most welcome. One of my 'complaints' with MS's XML implementation is the lack of consistency with the command set...I mean, come on! COM_STBY_RADIO isn't a very intuitive token for COM2!!! :(
