Ed,If I get this post right, you're looking for the variable names for these parameters. Since you'll no doubt be looking for other variables in the future, I refer you to Microsoft's panel SDK (see the FS9 or FS2K sites for links to these SDKs.Engine oil temperature is easy, that's (A:GENERAL ENG[1-4] OIL TEMPERATURE, [Celsius Fahrenheit Rankine])i.e. (A:General eng1 oil temperature, celsius)Faking an N3 percentage is also easy if you have a use for it:(A:Turb eng1 N1, percent) [percentage] * (>L:Turb eng1 N3 percent, number)Fuel temperature has no variable, it must be modeled based on existing parameters. Do a search for "fuel temperature" here in the forums. I know Arne Bartels and Ron Freimuth and have played with this.--Jon
