Set Future Pause for P3Dv4 or P3Dv5 or FSX


Recommended Posts

SetPauseP3Dv4&5.lua can be used to pause P3Dv4.5 or P3Dv5.1 from 1 minute to days after the script is run. Put the script in the same folder as FSUIPC6.ini and assign a key or button to activate it in the usual way.  When the script is first run you will see


where here an example pause time of 135 minutes has been entered, and as a result you would see


As the script runs the time will be counted down in minutes and displayed so after two minutes with the above example you would see


Finally, just before the sim pauses you will see


To cancel a pending (future) pause, just rerun the script and select the cancel option (*). You will see a brief cancel message. The sim pauses in the usual manner and can be unpaused with the standard "P" key.

The sim pause function is a toggle operation. So if you set a future pause time, and then manually pause the sim using the P key, then when the pause time is reached the sim will be unpaused by the script. While this is somewhat interesting, I'm not sure how useful it is. 

The script SetPauseFSX.lua below is very similar to the above, but for FSX.
