Add aircraft fails


Recommended Posts

I´m programming at VB .NET. How Can I do an aircraft fail with FSUIPC? I think the fail will be for example:fire in a engine, cabin depressurization, landing gear don´t work...

There are a number of failures you can se up, through FSUIPC offsets, including engine fire and maybe preventing landing gear action. But it will depend also on which add-on aircraft you use, or a default.

FS itself doesn't simulate cabin pressurisation, so de-pressurising it isn't possible. However, you could try to work out what the results would be and try to make those things happen. Same goes for a lot of things.

Thank you Pet for you answer. I´m you FAN I love you work.

Ok, I need to do configurations for all aircrafts models I use to simulate fails?

I fin it:

This byte reflects the FS2004 ―Engine on Fire‖ flags. I‘m not sure if FS actually simulates such events, but it appears to have allocated Gauge-accessible variables to indicate them. This byte uses bits 2^0–2^3 as flags for fires in Engines 1 to 4, respectively.

But, I don´t know How I can used in .NET? I don´t know If I need 1 to set fire in engine 1 or anything? Anybody can put an example?

I'm sorry, but you really do need to learn a bit about programming before embarking on such a more complex exercise as interfacing to FSUIPC. There should be some good books on programming VB, surely?

As it tells you explicity in the extract you copied (not sure why, I have a copy already), there are 4 separate bits for engine fires, one for each or up to 4 engines. If you do not understand numbers and bits in binary and hexadecimal, please read up on that first. There's a thread which may help a bit in the FAQ subforum. Try that.
