N1 Readings

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi All,

I am trying to make a conditional action in Spad.Next for starting the APU. What I am trying to do is if the engines are shutdown then start the APU (and set various other switches/selectors) but if the engines are running start with a slightly different set of actions.

I was hoping to read the current N1 values to set the Condition however I am struggling to find how to read these values. I have tried the SimConnect Eng N1 RPM:1/2 setting but it does not appear to read valid (or any) values

Any assistance will be most gratefully received

John,

We are not using the default engines parameters,  and these can't be read.

Thanks for that, I had guessed that the default readings were not used but it was all I could try at the time.

I don't suppose there is another parameter that is readable (through LVARs probably) that will allow me to determine whether the engines are running or not?

John,

all available variables can be seen in the SDK folder. I presume you can use the engine generators
