Adding Gauges?

Recommended Posts

I'm attempting to install a gauge into the MU-2 VC panel and for the life of me cannot figure it out.  I have FSPS and have successfully changed gauges in other payware aircraft.  Does Flysimware do something different than say Carenado or Flight1?  I have read that some builders have the VC panel as a part of the .mdl and therefore add-on gauges can't be easily added.

 

Thanks.

 

PS; here's the gauge http://library.avsim.net/search.php?SearchTerm=icev10.zip&CatID=root&Go=Search  I've been using it for several years in all of my FS aircraft.

I have FSPS as well, and have modified many an FS aircraft cockpit in my day.   Some payware aircraft

VCs lend themselves to native modification, but there are others, like Flysimware's Lear, that do not.   All

of the gauges of the VC are part of one system/.mdl file.   It does not look as if any native changes to

the VC are possible via FSPS, or by any other way that I know of.    That's typical of very systems

intensive FS aircraft.

 

I do have some gauges that over the years I have found are all but indispensable, in all of the FS aircraft

that I've flown.  I've added them to the Lear, but the only way to do it is to add additional windows to the

panel.cfg (not the VC sections) and add the gauges that way.   It's worked out pretty well for me.

Thanks Tatfsn.  The Ice gauge is one of those indispensable gauges for me. I have it installed in all of my regularly flown FSX aircraft.  

 

I tried adding it as a window and couldn't get it right.. I'll try again.

 

Regards,
