RealEngine for FSX/FS2004 - realistic aircraft limitations and failures

Recommended Posts

A nice little tool I've found, testing it right now: RealEngine 1.4


 


http://www.fs2000.or...ft-limitations/


 


From the download page: 


 


"RealEngine v1.4 Aircraft Limitations. RealEngine v1.4 fails systems and engines of piston aircraft if operating limitations are exceeded. Limitations modeled: MP / RPM / power, CHT, oil temp, oil press, lean/rich roughness, spark plug fouling, gear/flaps overspeed. Added vs v1.1/v1.2: easier configuration, realistic CHT model, mini status panel. Can be fully configured for individual aircraft."


 


I could get it to work with the RealAir Duke, except for the CHT which does not seem to work together very well. Anyone has experience with it? Anyway, it kind of adds to the experience when you want to have more 'control' on the failures which happen without FSP. I have it runnning with AccuFeel, no problems.


 


Cheers,


Andreas

Intresting, is it easy to set up and how realistic do you feel it is? Could be something to have while waiting for more Accusimmed aircrafts as I love these kind of things...Then I could reinstall some of my carenados because failures is the main reason I don't use them :rolleyes:

It is relatively easy, the documentation is quite extensive. However, you'll have to mess a bit with the respective panel.cfg, although it's just adding some entries. When the panels (three) are installed, you will have to configure the engine data for the aircraft. Most of the things you can take from the gauges (max values e.g. where the red begins ;-) ), or you take the values from the user manual. 

 

It also offers the option to add both a Oil Temp and CHT gauge if your aircraft doesn't have those. For the Duke, Oil Temp works fine, CHT not, but I don't want to mess with it.

I'll have to check this out tommorow. Thanks for sharing, had no idea that this program existed and it's even for free B)

Andy,

 

The creator of RealEngine, teson1, can usually be found in the Multiplayer Forum or you could send him an e-mail; he responds very quickly.

 

The program is used by the MP crowd to evaluate Aircraft Performance for the Round The World Race held every February and for other MP events.

Hi,

Alan made me aware of this discussion (thanks), so I thought to drop in to offer any help if needed.

While i believe setting up RE has become much easier compared to earlier versions, there still can be some stumbling blocks.

 

But you're managing fine as far as I can see.

 

Just a small note:

> For the Duke, Oil Temp works fine, CHT not, but I don't want to mess with it.

That's a good plan. RE is not intended to necessarily be flown with every option turned on. Just turn off any module you dont like in the status panel. It'll remember such settings from flight to flight.

 

If there's any issue or question just holler here, or send me a PM at flightsim.

 

BR.

Thanks for your support offer, highly appreciated! :-)

 

It is indeed not difficult to set it up, I did even learn something about CHT and what actually is behind those never-failing flightsim engines. As you wrote already in the manual, the stress and tension about whether it will fail or not is something which I personally missed from FSX.

 

Do you have any plans on extending the functionality with additional models? E.g. extensive stress to the wings ... ;-)

 

Thanks for this tool!

 

Cheers,

Andreas

Hmmm, I can't get this thing to work. Can't open the conf mini panel. Tried it with the carenado c185 tundra.

It should work using the following steps:

 

1. Copy the unzipped folder RealEngine_v14 to the FSX/Gauges/ folder

 

2. Open RE_Parameters folder within the RealEngine_v14 folder, make a copy of 'RE_Parameters_AIRCRAFT.ini', rename the copied file to something like this: RE_Parameters_C185Tundra

 

3. Go the folder RealEngine_v14/Installation - Documentation and open the file RE_panel_cfg_entry_v14.txt in a text editor and leave it open

 

4. Go to your aircraft's panel folder under FSX/Simobjects/Airplanes/YOURAIRCRAFT/panel

 

5. Make a copy of the panel.cfg, place it somewhere where its safe. Now open the original panel.cfg which is in the panel folder

 

6. Under [Window Titles] add the three entries from the RE_panel_cfg_entry_v14.txt:

 
Window08=RealEngine_StatusPanel_Mini
Window09=RealEngine-StatusPanel
Window10=RealEngine_StatusPanel_CHT
 
Change the numbers after Window to the next in line according to the original entries under [Window Titles]
 
7. Next is to simply copy the entries for [Window08], [Window[09], and [Window10] from the RE_panel_cfg_entry_v14.txt and insert those lines below the the last original [WindowXX] entry in the panel cfg of your tundra. Be careful to copy everything from the  RE_panel_cfg_entry_v14.txt since the [Window08] section is very long while the other two sections are short
 
8. Under the [Window08] section of the freshly inserted lines search for the gauge02 entry and change the name of the .ini reference to something like this, depending on how you named the file you created earlier in RE_Parameters folder:
 
RE_Parameters_C185Tundra
 
It should look like this:
 
gauge02=RealEngine_v14\RE_Parameters\dsd_xml_config_v21!config,5,5,5,, .\Gauges\RealEngine_v14\RE_Parameters\RE_Parameters_C185Tundra.ini
 
9. If you want the minipanel to remain visible in the Virtual cockpit, you'll have to add the following lines under the [VCockpit01] section of your aircrafts panel.cfg, where XX refers to the next number in line according to the previous entries under [VCockpit01]:
 
gaugeXX=RealEngine_v14\dsd\dsd_window_status2!window_status, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1 
gaugeXX=RealEngine_v14!RE_KeepMiniStatusPanelOpenInVC, 0, 0, 1, 1 
 
Hope it helps,
cheers,
Andreas

Nice find! Sounds like a great addon to my Lancair Legacy!

 

 

 


you will have to configure the engine data for the aircraft

 

I'm not home so I can't check and test this myself yet, but how and where do you have to configure that data? And it is possible to save and exchange that data? If so, maybe someone can create that data for the RealAir Lancair Legacy...? So I can immediately start using this addon when I get home without having to figure out all that data myself LOL

It should work using the following steps:

I did exactly those steps, and when I loaded the plane in the FSX menu I got a popup to run the gauges module and I clicked "run", so it seems I got it right. But I can't find the config panel in the sim. Frustrating, I really want this thing :wacko:

 

Edit: I tried pushing the engine over it's limits and get failure.... But I cant find the control panel to configure those failures...weird. Could it be that it's incompitable with this plane?

Im gonna try it on one of the default planes to see..

@J van E You can edit the data while in FlightSim or in the ini file. Although it is better to configure it in the flightsim as you can test it out immediately. 

 

@Kaboki The config panel is a panel view, so you might want to try if you can find it in the View --> Instrument panel or try to open it with any combination of Shift-1 to Shift-9. There should be three panels in there. If that doesn't help, teson1 is the developer (see post above) and I think he would be happy to help. :)

I tried to open all the panels there is but I don't get the right one. I only get some instrument gauges to show. I was hoping @teson1 would pop in here soon, as I can see he follows this topic...

Hey Andy,

great helpdesk job B)

 

Just coming in here and problem is already solved.

 

There is one entry which it might be better to remove (better safe than sorry):

 

@Kaboki

 

Remove the part marked orange below from the panel.cfg test that Andy has posted.

Let us know if you still have problems.

 

@Andy,

 

> Do you have any plans on extending the functionality with additional models? E.g. extensive stress to the wings ... ;-)

 

For the time being I have only very limited to no plans with RE, and no work ongoing.

The one point I'd still really like to fix is to find a better way to display the RE CHT-model's CHT value into the aircraft's CHT gauge.

Currently the pretty complex procedure of editing the plane's' CHT or Oil T gauge to display the CHT/Oil T value modeled by RE's CHT model in the aircraft's gauge is not satisfactory.

 

I'm looking for anybody who wouild be willing to write me a C gauge that allows to directly overwrite FS's internal CHT value with the value calculated by the RE CHT model. The required C/Simconnect/FSUIPC modeling is beyond my skills.

 

Additional modules are certainly possible, but they would have to make sense, ie they must allow either to add a new feature that currently does not exist in FS, or allow to render an FS feature more realistic.

The "more realistic" part is the difficulty.

Just for illustration, in the cited example (stress to wings leading to failure, which is an interresting feture) an user or I during RE development would need to find data/information/estimation under what loads the wing collapses/gets damaged to configure such an RE module in a realistic way. Unfortunately very little real-world test data exists about this, pilots being rather shy to test it out, and most of those who have are unfortunately not with us any more to tell about their experience. ;)

So I don't see how to make such a module more realistic than the overstress limlitation that FS already has.

 

This is the issue with a lot of effects one could consider.

 

So I have no real plans for major additions/modifications to RE for the time being.

Hello there,

 

I had some time to test it and I must say flying in FSX makes more sense now. ;-) perfect addon for aircraft without a native failure mode.

 

One thing which might be of interest to add would perhaps be something similar to the service based failures of PMDG's NGX. As far as I know it lets an engine fail when its maintenance status is bad or hours in service are high. Since many aircraft write their engine hours into the respective state.cfg it would be possible to read this value and do something with it... :-)

 

Cheers,

Andy

Okay guys reviving an old thread :huh:

 

I enhanced the old C185 with the available mods (B.Stolle's FDE's and Daniel Gaulthier's cockpit clickspot sounds)

I also added the RealEngine 1.4 gauge as per the above instructions. I edited the parameters with values I collected from various sources around the internet. I added two screenshot's with the changes I made. I have however two questions:

1. where are the edited values stored when directly edit the parameters in the gauge. I thought in the aircraft specific .ini file but that one seemed unchanged.

2. Are these values (somehow) correct in your opinion because the engine seems very fickle. Within 1-2 minutes after take off with take off power the engines just quits <_<

Thanks in advance for any help!

I'm setting this up for the Carenado 210.

 

The power lines should be in the manual. The CHT, oil temp and oil pressure I think can come off the aircrafts gauges do those should be good for you.

 

Now I'm not sure about the MP and RPM stuff. They should be obtainable from performance charts or in the manual but you could also copy the minutes just off the gauges I imagine. But I'm not sure. Have you googled if anyone has done this with the 185 before because that would help. You could also take it up and run it at those settings and get your max values.... Maybe

 

Hope this helps. Maybe I'll post a screenshot of the 210 when I'm done

Hi,

 

I'm trying to setup RealEngine with my Aerosoft Beaver. The problem is that although the gagues are working and I can pretty much trash my engines on demand :) I can't get the status gagues to appear on the screen. I get what looks like rectangular flash and then nothing, except for a rapidly flickering cursor.

 

I've seen similar on other planes when loading panels and I think its likely assciated with me using a Matrox Triplehead, but I just wanted to check if anyone had any issues before I go down that path.

 

Additionally, if anyone has already done the config work on the Beaver, can they share? No point spending hours on this if somebody has already done it.

 

BTW If I get this to work I will be happy to share.

 

Neil

Just read about this over at CalClassic's. Very interesting addon this is. Going to have to try it on a few of the unrealistic paywares I have.

This is a pretty wow addon.  So much of the time I find myself not paying attention to CHT and EGT.  Gonna have to try this out.  I might be shot by the dev for saying this, but HTR (Helicopter Total Realism) has a nice way of integrating with helos by running alongside the sim...you don't have to integrate it into the aircraft.  Might make it simpler for folks?
