FSUIPC and Engin-Start (Airbus)


Recommended Posts

Is there any adress in you fsuipc for the engin-start for an airbus?

(engin-Master-Switch1, programm-selector, start-button)

FSUIPC provides an interface to Flight Simulator. If Flight Simulator provides the facilities you are after, then you should certainly be able to access them in FSUIPC. However, FS itself does not support any special means of starting engines on any specific aircraft and, in fact, it doesn't even come with an Airbus model built in.

For FS engine starting please refer to offsets 0892, 092A, 09C2 and 0A5A. Once you have turned on the power (battery), FS engine starting for jets consists of turning a starter switch, and holding it, and introducing fuel (via the same control as the "mixture" on props) at the appropriate time.

Specific add-on aircraft may have more sophisticated, more accurate, ways of doing it, and these facilities may or may not overlap with the inbuilt FS facilities. Whether or not you can operate them through FSUIPC then depends entirely upon how the authors have implemented them.

If you are using Project Magenta then quite sophisticated subsystems can be correctly implemented through pmSystems, and all of Project Magenta is programmable via FSUIPC and documented fully for this purpose.

For your information, just to point to a cheap alternative: Packed with the Level-D Boeing 767-300 is an SDK. My freeware program FSCONV makes the SDK functions and data available via FSUIPC offsets.

Engine start control is included, amongst various other subsystems.

No C-programming skills needed, no expensive PM software needed. Extra logic can easily be add via FSBUS or IOCards. Especially IOCards SIOC is a very powerful tool (and also freeware).

Thanks Nico. That's useful. It's a pity the same cannot be done with the PMDG series of aircraft. What about the PSS ones? Are they open to cockpit developments do you know?
