Reloading Aircraft From Within the Sim?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Would anyone be able to tell me if there is a way to reload an aircraft inside the sim after editing/tweaking a cfg file?

At the moment I am re-starting the sim every time I want to see the changes that I have made, but I'm sure there must be a quicker, smarter way to do this?

Thanks,

Dave

Haven’t tried it but I would assume you could load a different plane then load the plane you changed.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I've tried that and it doesn't seem to work.

I've tried exiting the scenario, going to "My Hanger" and loading a different aircraft and then reloading the aircraft that I am trying to edit, but no luck.

I know there was a key you could bind in P3D that would reload the aircraft right on the runway. I can't seem to find anything like that in MSFS.

ESC out of the sim to the OPTIONS screen. do your .cfg changes.

Look at the bottom - HOME Restart, hit that, confirm and you're back again.

Hey Søren,

Can you confirm that you have tired this successfully, because it doesn't seem to load the aircraft with the new .cfg changes for me?

It restarts the scenario, but the aircraft remains unchanged .

Trying to figure out if I am missing something obvious at my end... 

Thanks

Unfortunately, I only used in when tweaking the parameter in the .js file for the FPS trick... and there it worked.

You need to enable 'Developer Mode'. It's available in the Settings (General) menu, under it's own heading.

Once enabled, you'll notice a tool bar available at the top. Click on 'Windows' and then  'Aircraft Selector'.

It's the only way I've found where you can change the aircraft while already in a session without having to go back to the main menu. In your case, I'd suggest just selecting a different aircraft and then selecting your original aircraft again to see the changes.

Hope that works.
