SET_FUEL_TRANSFER_FORWARD etc

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if these SDK click events are simple to make work in an xml gauge? I have a need to transfer fuel to maintain a CoG, but just want the transfer to be as simple as a click knob on the panel and VC. Its possible to do these commands through the key assignments list, but is it possible to do this without using key presses and just clicks on a panel?SET_FUEL_TRANSFER_AUTOSET_FUEL_TRANSFER_FORWARDSET_FUEL_TRANSFER_AFTSET_FUEL_TRANSFER_OFFMany thanks in advance!David.

They work, but only between tanks Center1 and Center2. They are a lingering remnant from the old FS2000 Concorde.I just wrote a fuel transfer gauge for the Alpha B-58 using those functions in xml. Works just fine.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile

Yes, I tested it is realy work ,I set up 2 fuel tanks on my aircraft- center 1 and center 2 , and create xml switch with the code SET_FUEL_TRANSFER_FORWARD, (this code is from FS2002 SDK -work fine in FS2004) for my aircraft is the fuel transfer too fast,I have 2x 15 gallons fuel tanks and the fuel is transfered in 0.5 second from one tank to another,is anny posible way to slowing down the fulel transfer??I need the transfer speed abouth 20 gallons per hour ,now look like 2000 gallons per hour may be faster.Thanks Paul
