Is it possible to add TCAS function to see AI aircraft (or other network/multiplayer aircrafts) ?- roland -

I think that is a good idea : SDK has some collecting AI data (hope so !) and is should be not that hard to come up with something ... I'll try that.L.

That would be so great to have a TCAS, like PMDG made on the 757 (with altitude difference)Thanks to try :-)- roland -

Yes, that's the intent.I'm working right now with the TCAS feature : do you think a TCAS deserves to have a stand alone gauge ?L.

In my opinion, it's better to have the TCAS on the same HSI, with a button to switch it ON/OFF.What do you think ?- roland -

Well,Right now the TCAS works with the navigation display. I'll do a single gauge with VSI in a next stage.I'll be curious to know if the ND will diplay multiplayer aircraft too.The full package will be ready soon : I'll debug it today. Just to complete air avoidance algorithm and adjust graphics then it's ready.laurent (rotw)

Hi all,The file is ready : it has been debugged and works fine ... almost as we planned. Maybe some improvements will be settled if needed but it's ready to go.Maybe the most important problem will be the area size for this gauge and I scheduled to prepare a pop up window for panels without enough place.The TCAS is ready as you can see in the enclosed image.So, in this very next days be ready to download : hope this please you.Cheers,laurent (rotw)

Laurent, I would have another request for you(yes again ! :-abduct )Is it possible to have also an optionnal display of the route waypoints with their names ?We can't see waypoints at this time on the vector map and there is no tool for that in Fly! except in the PMDG 757 HSI.It would be great for IFR flights.- roland -http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/89362.jpg

I think you can see the waypoints on the vector map. Make sure that they are checked on. I will take a look, though.tony

Tony,you can see only the waypoints that are part of your FPL and without label.- roland -

Actually, navaids, waypoints, both FPL or non FPL, and airports are displayed as single dots, icao name, navaid frequencies, distance and bearing, scrolling through each button. So almost all is displayed can show informations about it. TCAS uses a code color for alert and shows altitude difference from our plane.Cheers,Laurent (rotw)
