EADI readouts cleaned up

Recommended Posts

In response to a user request, I have made the EADI readouts more similar

to the official aircraft documentation. 

If that interests you and you have my earlier GTN version, send me a PM

with your email address.

Hiya,

With help of Bert i've improved my XML hacking skills :laugh:.

At the moment send Bert the release candidate of my improved EADI display.

Oke, what is changed, hope i remember all i tweaked. Basis for the tweaks are real-life PC-12 manuals and PC-12 cockpit movies on youtube.

- Most of the autopilot-mode readouts locations are tweaked.Colour changed, armed mode = WHITE, captured mode = GREEN;
- DH readout colour changed to green;
- RA range extend to 2500 ft, when out of range "---" is shown;
- RA below 500 ft, will show 5 ft in/decrements instead of 10 ft;
- Compass_strip, added: N, E, W en S;
- Added ILS/APP mode, the sky/ground "square" will be reduced to give the Speed pointer, Glideslope and slip-indicator a black background to provide more contrast.

To give a impression how it looks now:

Available on request through Bert.

Marcel -

Thank you. The work of this community has given me hundreds of hours of enjoyment with the PC-12 and has even bled over into a real-world appreciation for the air frame.

Look forward to the release.

This is fantastic work!  Thank you!

I have made my own changes to the EHSI, namely the color scheme now changes from green to cyan when GPS is the NAV source.  Also, I modified the CDI behavior to integrate better with RXP gauges...but that needs a little more testing.  Perhaps I can integrate my mods?  I'll email Bert.
