Looking for a 2D fuel press gauge.

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.  I have been using FS Panel Studio to edit one of my thrid-party aircraft's 2D panel to make it more similar to the aircraft I fly in real life (Piper PA-28-140).  However, none of my installed aircraft seem to have a fuel pressure gauge that is small, rectangular, has 1/2, 5, and 8 PSI in green, and 10 maximum.  Does anyone know a FSX aircraft that has such a 2D gauge, or such a gauge itself?  Thank you in advance for any assistance!

Quarantine may have it's advantages.. 😉 Was a little bored.
Made one for you from references on that interweb thingy.
You can get it here.

Thank you very, very much spokes2112!  I have a couple of minor requests if you don't mind (or tell me how):

-Can you please make an additional panel (rather than replace it outright) that is like the 296_zxfth.jpg photo?  The s-I1600.jpg has the 5 on the right half of the gauge.  The 296 photo matches my aircraft with the 5 right on the middle.  My aircraft also doesn't have any red indicator on it (but it's not super important).  I know my way around GIMP if necessary, but otherwise don't know the first thing about creating or editing gauges.  

-When the Piper starts up in the sim, the needle moves to 8 and when I turn on the fuel pump it seems to max out at 10.  In the real aircraft I fly the needle goes to 6 and 7, respectively.  Is this something that needs to be edited in the gauge?  Or is it something I can edit in the aircraft's files with a text editor, and if so, which lines?

Once again I appreciate you taking the time to make this gauge.

Art work is done, no red bars, 5 in the middle.
Calibration is a different story, on the low end (8 in sim, 6 in real life) isn't a problem. It is the upper end that I need help to make a formula so it is calibrated properly.
What are aircraft are you using? (company, freeware? zipfile etc..) 
It is easier to formulate the gauge to show real from the sim output than it is to get into the .air file and make the sim output equal real. The latter "may" fudge up other aspects of engine performance. It is not worth crawling down that hole.

EDIT - Disregard "what aircraft are you using". Used some "fuzzy" logic to make it work plus... Added an Easter Egg, hope you like :))
Just download again

Thank you very much Roman!!!  I believe the Easter Egg is the needle moving back and forth?  😄  I appreciate you volunteering your time to help my simulation while my flight school is grounded for the next two weeks at least.

If you're curious, the Piper I am using is this:

It is OK - a few features doesn't seem to work, a few gauges are missing, and its virtual cockpit doesn't resemble my school's.  I have been enjoying the process of editing the 2D panel and I intend to enjoy flying it even more!

Best,

Richard

Glad it works for you! You're welcome.

Yes it is.. Only when the engine is running, a little effect from vibrations.
