Hello Paul Henty
I want to use FSUIPC to add AI aircraft, I do not know what to do? Please also trouble you to make some suggestions.
Looking forward to your reply.
Thank you!

Hi Thomas:
Thank you very much for your help and information, I have to solve these problems about the idea.
Thank you!

You can read and write offsets for the PMDG777 with the Pmdg777 SDK.
When coding with VB.net you can include the translated SDK (x VB.net) for the Pmdg777. You read and set all those values.
You need the Microsoft.FlightSimulator.Simconnect.dll and the PMDG_777X_SDK.h > in your VB.net "Release" Folder.
Just read this Post >
By the way: you can use the FSX Simconnect.dll for reading and setting the Spoiler "Tick number" and the "Spoiler position value". There is no problem with using different sistems together.
The route distance "from" > "to" can be calculated in this way: (this is the real nautical mathe formula)
Dim LatitudeAircraft As Offset(Of Long) = New FSUIPC.Offset(Of Long)(&H560) 'Latitude Dim LongitudeAircraft As Offset(Of Long) = New FSUIPC.Offset(Of Long)(&H568) 'Longitude Lat1 = LatitudeAircraft.value Lon1 = LongitudeAircraft.value lat1 = lat1 * 90 / (10001750D * 65536D * 65536D) lon1 = lon1 * 360 / (65536D * 65536D * 65536D * 65536D) 'Dim d As Double 'lat2, lon2 = destination coordinates that could be the runway center Start position d = distance(lat1, lon1, lat2, lon2, "N") 'distance between 2 Pos 'Function calculate lat, lot between 2 points in distance Function distance(ByVal lat1, ByVal lon1, ByVal lat2, ByVal lon2, ByVal unit) As Double Dim theta, dist theta = lon1  lon2 dist = Math.Sin(deg2rad(lat1)) * Math.Sin(deg2rad(lat2)) + Math.Cos(deg2rad(lat1)) * Math.Cos(deg2rad(lat2)) * Math.Cos(deg2rad(theta)) 'Dim dist As Double 'read distance result with 1 or 2 decimals .ToString("f2") dist = acos(dist) ' used if theta in calculation is used dist = rad2deg(dist) distance = dist * 60 * 1.1515 Select Case UCase(unit) Case "K" 'Kilometer distance = distance * 1.609344 Case "N" 'Nautic miles distance = distance * 0.8684 End Select End Function 'convert decimal degreees to radians Function deg2rad(ByVal Deg) deg2rad = CDbl(Deg * pi / 180) End Function 'convert radians to decimal degrees Function rad2deg(ByVal Rad) rad2deg = CDbl(Rad * 180 / pi) End Function 'get arccos using the arctan function Function acos(ByVal rad) Dim pi As Double = 3.14159265358979 acos = 0 If Math.Abs(rad) <> 1 Then acos = pi / 2  Math.Atan(rad / Math.Sqrt(1  rad * rad)) ElseIf rad = 1 Then acos = pi End If End Function Public Function Atan2(ByVal y As Double, ByVal x As Double) As Double Dim Pi As Double = 3.14159265358979 If y > 0 Then If x >= y Then Atan2 = Math.Atan(y / x) ElseIf x <= y Then Atan2 = Math.Atan(y / x) + Pi Else Atan2 = Pi / 2  Math.Atan(x / y) End If Else If x >= y Then Atan2 = Math.Atan(y / x) ElseIf x <= y Then Atan2 = Math.Atan(y / x)  Pi Else Atan2 = Math.Atan(x / y)  Pi / 2 End If End If End Function
Always specify when referring to a PMDG aircraft
You would need a similare calculation approach when using the pmdg / VB.net SDK.

Very helpful to me, thank you!

Oh, the PMDG model needs to use the PMDG SDK to read the Information,I will go to understand and try. Is it possible that other models will use FSUIPC's standard interface to get these values? For example: Aerosoft Airbus model and so on.
Thanks again for your reply

Hi Thomas
I am using FSUIPC Version 4.955c. The aircraft model is PMDG777300ER. The development environment is Visual Studio 2015(.net framework4.0 , VB.Net). The FSUIPCClient.dll that is used is V2.4.
About the Spoilers offsets, whether on the ground or in the air, 0BD0, 0BD4, 0BD8 these three are able to get to the value, only 0BCC can not get the value.
In addition to the GPS system, are there other offsets that can get information on approach status, route distance and estimated flight time?
Thanks again for your reply.

Hi Paul Henty:
I am developing a program that uses FSUIPC as the interface to detect the status of the aircraft in FSX and P3D, but I have encountered some problems in the development:
1.Through 0BCC can not get the state of Spoilers armed.
2.Through 60FC 6108 615C 6140 6137, can not get the relevant state of the aircraft approach.
3. Through 61A0,6198, can not get the Route total distance and Destination ETE.
My english is poor,please forgive me.
Hope to get your reply,Thanks.
