Electrical system - does it work?

Recommended Posts

HiI've been trying for over a month now (sporadically of course) to get certain functions to draw amps from the electrical system, as described in the SDK. Messing around in aircraft.cfg, .air files, setting things in xml code a billion ways. Nada! I set amps for landing and taxi light - but nil responce in my voltammeter (all the others works ok though). Hot prop set (in all possible and barely related places in .air fil) - again; nothing.What is the "secret" to get a normal response from the electrical system? I've monitored every possible A:Variable, but less than half the K:Events (with according electrical part in aircraft.cfg) will cause any change on these. I've tried different buses, lowered required voltage for unit to start, etc. Nil, nothing?!?! I've tried different battery fix values (and totally off) within fsuipc. One really weird thing is; only on a few aircraft loads will the pitot heat draw current.It's driving me nuts!It has finally drove me to the point where I have created a full electrical section in xml that I add to the normal electrical (those few that does work). The load "drawn" from this system is divided amongst online alternators or just the battery. The only thing I can't do is cause the battery to drain quicker during high loads, but the voltammeter seem to respond as I want.Before I continue this; ARE there ANY ways to get the implemented electrical system to function properly, or is this a bug?

Unfortunately the details in the electric system, especially the currents, are extremely buggy. There is no way to help it, except for completely "faking" a selfmade electrical system.Arne Bartels
