This is a small update to the Cheyenne IIIA modification. 

1.  Minor fixes to cockpit sounds.

2.  Autopilot update.

3.  Added propeller drag at very low power settings.

4.  Updated the ADF to facilitate easier frequency changes.

5.  Activated the Carenado Radar in the Carenado GNS530 panel.  This can be easily done for any of the panels in the panel.cfg files. 

It will be on the street shortly as a complete mod update. 

If you are not on the distribution list and would like a copy, please send my a PM here with your email address. 

Regards,

Bill

Hi Bill,

I just noticed that the overhead master panel light switch doesn’t seem to function. Also the overhead amp meters don’t seem to work either..

 The other thing is in v1.2, I couldn’t use the model folders as it is missing a line in the model.cfg file. Eg normal=PA_42

Cheers Fred

Bill... as allready discussed in the 1.0 thread but not followed up, I still get the:

This WX is locked: rootpath\simobjects\airplanes\carenado pa42_cheyenne_iiia\pa42a.air

I have the latest WX installed but I'm allready on p3dv4.5 and there is no Rex WX update for that version yet. Mivliz just rolled out updates so it will take a few days I assume.

Otherwise will do a testflight now 😉

Cheers and Thx

Thorsten

Fred, Lighting seems to work fine for me. If I use the master switch first to dim or bright I can use the panel light switches after that without problem. amp meter showing load and changing when switching on/off pitot for example. And I don't see a problem with the model folder. Whats your problem there?

Cheers

T.

You can select either radar by changing the panel.cfg file.   If you don't have the MILVIZ radar, you can change the panel back to the Carenado unit like this.

1. Open the applicable "panel.cfg" file in notepad.

2. Find the following lines:

-------------------------------------------------------------

[Vcockpit04]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=512,512
visible=0
pixel_size=512,512
texture=$Panel_4


gauge00=MV_WX!WX,  90,35,335,245
//gauge00=WX_Gauge_3D_PA42III!WXGauge,  9,9,492,309
gauge03=TOGGLES!ToggleWxAdvantage,  0,48,513,450

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Change to look like this and save the file:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Vcockpit04]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=512,512
visible=0
pixel_size=512,512
texture=$Panel_4


//gauge00=MV_WX!WX,  90,35,335,245
gauge00=WX_Gauge_3D_PA42III!WXGauge,  9,9,492,309
//gauge03=TOGGLES!ToggleWxAdvantage,  0,48,513,450

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Carenado radar should now show in the VC panel. 

Regards,

Bill

Hi Torsen,

Thank you for the response. Indeed the lights work fine if I use the master switch located on the front post between the windshields however the switch located above near the seatbelt and no smoking sign switches does not function as well as the ammeters not functioning. 

I do however run FSX-SE not P3D.

Cheers Fred

Want to try out these mod's Bill has done but am getting a "whamil77 cannot receive messages" message trying to PM him here.  Are these files publicly available somewhere?
