Dummy engine

Recommended Posts

I am looking into possible solutions for a problem I've had for a long time.  My virtual airline uses VAFS(VA Financials) as their ACARS.  The problem is where the ACARS client doesn't recognize the Majestic Dash 8 engines starting up.


My first idea was to see if FSUIPC could somehow be used to send *dummy states* to fool the client.  One set of parameters for an engine start and another set for a shutdown.  


The second idea was to modify the aircraft.cfg to add a default cessna engine.  This dummy engine would ideally be weightless and have no effect on the aircraft flight dymanics.




What i am looking for is not necessarily the exact method but more for someone who can tell me whether they believe this could work and is worth investing sometime trying to figure out the details.
