Question for Mr. Dowson


Recommended Posts

Hello Mr. Dowson,

I am building a Learjet 45 panel, and am working on the annunciator lights now.

The lights I have are: Oil Press, Oil Temp, Oil Level, Generator, Fuel right level, Fuel left Level, Fuel Center Level, Spoilers deployed, Emergency Battery and Exit open.

For all Oil and Generator lights I have 2 of each (two engines).

For the generator and exit lights I found Offset codes, and they work as expected, but for the other ones I cannot find specific Offsets in the list of codes. What codes should I use, are there any?

If not, is there a way to make it work?

Thanks In advance,

Jaap Both

The lights are indicators of something. You need to detect the condition which makes them light.

If not, is there a way to make it work?

Apart from "emergency battery" which I don't think is simulated in FS, you can find values providing the amounts of all these things. If the warning lights are to operate when the levels go below (or above) a given limit, that's what you'll need to check.

Hello Mr. Dowson,

Thanks for your quick reply !

So it is not entirely impossible. I am a bit relieved now.

I should find out wich value's trigger them, but how? Can this be done with FSUIPC itself, or what sort of program do I need?

Maybe you can point me in the right direction?

Thanks, Jaap Both

Sorry, you are losing me now. If you know what the indicators actually mean, then surely you know what values trigger them? How else are you going to know what they are for or what to do about them?

I really don't know what you are doing, but I am assuming they are warning lights for low levels of oil or fuel, or high temperatures or pressures? The levels, pressures and temperatures are available 9they are displayed on gauges, for instance, and are listed in FSUIPC's lists of values). The warning levels will vary from aircraft to aircraft -- that's for you to determine from aircraft spcs etc, surely?

You're right of course, I was unclear in my explanation :oops:

Your assumption is correct, and your answer is clear. I thought that the lights were triggered by separate events, but they are actually triggered by certain values (aircraft dependent) that the gauges indicate.

Ok, that puts me to work, Thanks!

Jaap
