eBag (Electronic Flight Bag) Also works in VR

Recommended Posts

This is a simple toolbar option to let you view approach plates (any PDF actually), JPG images and TXT files of notes you have made. You can resize the window, zoom in/out, step through pages of a PDF or click to the next document in your flight bag. This v2 updates v1 by fixing the problem of filenames with spaces and (hopefully) there are no more conflicts with other custom toolbar options. I'l upload to flightsim.to when I get a chance.

For now, download from https://authentikit.org/msfs/ebag_v2.zip (full instructions in the zip)

Feedback welcome. I still want to fine tune the size of the navigation arrows as they're a bit small in VR. Fine in 2D. Also I'll add a rotate 90 degrees option.

Just finished my first ILS flight in VR using your eBag! Fantastic! What a tremendous benefit to be able to refer to charts while in VR. I've really been hoping someone would develop a tool like this.

Thanks for your efforts in improving our flight sim hobby!

Hi Spit40, many thanks for putting eBag together

I came across ByMaximus's toolbar app a couple of days ago but took a different route to running a local web server, by altering CustomPanel.html directly. It works (to some extent - still so issues to resolve such as having to embed images). Very much like your ideal of a short script to compile the ebag ahead of flight which I may have a go at as well
