The LINDA autosave feature

1 post in this topic

Hello LINDA friends,

 

one "hidden" feature Artem implemented silently is the LINDA autosave.

 

 

When you open the following file (with windows editor):

"\Modules\linda-cfg\system\config-user.lua"

-- USER CONFIGURATION FOR AUTOSAVE
-- Updated for LINDA 2.5
-- Dez 2014

-- All the settings here could be overridden on per-plane basis
-- by creating file config-user.lua in corresponding plane's configs folder
-- (i.e. SIM/Modules/linda-cfg/aircrafts/Cessna 172/config-user.lua)
-- Use the same variables there with new desired values.

-- To use the autosave feature with nearest airport names, you have to 
-- enable/insert the following line into your FSUIPC4.ini:
-- under [General] search for or insert:
-- GetNearestAirports=Yes


-- Autosave feature settings
-- =========================

-- Global autosave feature enable/disable
AUTOSAVE_ENABLE = 0

-- Make LINDA also save the default flight named "_linda_default",
-- so you could set it as default flight in your sim and make next
-- flight start from the same place
AUTOSAVE_DEFAULT_FLIGHT = 0

-- Make LINDA also save the _plane_specific_ default flight named "_linda_lastpos_AircraftID",
-- so you could load it manualy if you have several planes in use
-- and want to fast resume their flights
AUTOSAVE_PLANE_FLIGHT = 0

-- Make separate save file for each airport (logfile mode)
AUTOSAVE_EACH_AIRFIELD = 0

-- What systems should be turned OFF to trigger the autosave action:

-- Engine should be off
AUTOSAVE_ENGINE_CHECK = 1

-- Magneto should be off
AUTOSAVE_MAGNETO_CHECK = 0

-- Main battery should be off
AUTOSAVE_BATTERY_CHECK = 0

-- All lights should be off
AUTOSAVE_LIGHTS_CHECK = 0

-- Parking brake should be set
AUTOSAVE_PARKING_CHECK = 1

All explanations are in the file itself.

To enable the autosave feature, simply change AUTOSAVE_ENABLE = 0 to AUTOSAVE_ENABLE = 1

 

 

What autosave does is simple:

You can set some triggers when a flight should be saved.

 

Or you can assign that feature (also) to a joystick button with LIB:default FSX --> Save flights

 

 

Enjoy!
