Help me place 2 Reality XP GNS430's in the Carenado 208

Recommended Posts

Can someone help me place 2 Reality-XP GNS430 units in the Carenado Cessna Caravan 208?

 

Right now I have 1 GNS430, the 2nd radio stack, and then the RXP WX500. There must be room to fit 2 430's above the WX500.

 

Thanks!

Here is the layout right now. In the space with the GNS430 and the backup radio I'd like 2 GNS430's

Anyone familiar with panel editing?

 

I guess I need to edit these 2 lines to get the 2nd GNS in there in place of the radio. Any help appreciated

You could put it here:

 

gauge08=GCCB!Radios2, 2,64,284,95

But it will be very squished...

Carenado for some reason makes 4 seperate entries for VC textures... most developers would have that one stack under one vcockpit section

Right, but how can I edit the gauge00 to make the top GPS a little smaller? That way it wont be squished if I move up the 2nd GPS to make it bigger.

Where's Bert when you need him...

 

Look at your Panels SDK and it will tell you what those numbers all mean, I can't recall off the top of my head which number to adjust... I think it's the last two though... just play with them.

 

Also, as a suggestion... I always leave default code in the .cfg with the // marks... If you put them before a line the program will ignore that line. It also helps to remember what the default sizes were and lines...

 

Example of an edit

 

//gauge08=GCCB!Radios2, 2,64,284,95

gauge08=rxpGNS!GNS430, 2,64,284,95

I think you won't receive a decent looking twin 430 setup unless you move other gauges away. You can use a single unit in the VC and then have a second via the popup window. Perhaps that's sufficient enough.

 

Or you idea with the radio gauge works. Rendering things smaller is easy. The numbers are coordinates and sizes.

gauge08=GCCB!Radios2, 2,64,284,95

The first two (2,64) define where the gauge starts, the second set (284,95) then defines the width and height.

 

gauge00=rxpGNS!GNS430, 2,165,282,140

You can make it smaller, e.g. only 120 instead of 140. By this, you gain some 20 pixels, which means that the 'radio' spot can move up a bit (2,64 then is 2,44) and gains 20 pixels of height, rendering 284,95 now 284,115. Well, the rest is fine tuning.

gauge00=rxpGNS!GNS430, 2,165,282,118

gauge08=GCCB!Radios2, 2,42,282,117

Try that one if you like. Nearly the same size. There is a chance that the 3D knobs from the radio model interfere though. I think you can turn them off. In that config popup.

 

The C208 also features that copy protection or whatever it is, so you can't really exclude the Carenado weather radar. But I see you already have the RXP unit running, so that's a known problem for you.

Good point about the Wx radar...

 

I guess what I'd do is attempt to shorten the top 430 and then add the new 430 in that radios 2 line, and heighten that one... It should work fine then.

Not sure if there's anything you can do about that. It's the weird way carenado places/overlaps VC textures. It actually looks like they used an image of their stock GPS for that texture spot.

 

What lines did you put in the cfg ?

Yeah, I think Ryan names it. Seems like the Carenado texture background interferes. Perhaps a painter guy can work that out. Although I don't recall Carenado 'backing' their GPS into the background. :Thinking: And why is the first RXP able to override it while the second one is not?

 

There's a chance that the Carenado GPS stil resides actively in that panel.cfg. Can you check if it really is excluded or even deleted? You may also want to delete that toggleGPS gauge as the RXP units have their own clickspot.

Gear up and off, try this: Comment out // your two RXP gauges so it will leave a blank space. I'm curious to see what resides behind those RXP gauges, as far as VC textures go.
