Back in development on the side

Recommended Posts

Saw that Microsoft offers Visual Studio free for independent developers like myself.  I am downloading it and trying to think of new add-ons I can create.  My big push is for a universal 2-d autopilot gauge, which I can pop up and set V/S, IAS, Alt, and heading easily for P3dV4.  I don't like the fancy systems that come bundled with some aircraft which add steps to the process of setting up the A/P.  I like having it all there in one universal gauge, haven't found a freeware one for P3dv4.  If anyone knows of such a gauge I would be happy to skip the coding and use it outright.

Well, you could always knock one up in FS Panel Studio. Might have to manually find folders for it in P3D, but there isn't any reason I can think of why it would not suit the purpose.

Thanks, I will look into that. Haven't played with panels too much.  Took a long time to get the Dev tools installed, I thought my computer was hosed again.  I sweated bullets waiting for it to finish restarting, took over an hour.  I have a slow web service plus a firewall.

Checked my system out after install of visual studio.  There's a slight stutter which I think is SQL server, so I will probably stop that service.  Otherwise performance wasn't impacted and the scenery passed by fluidly.
