new MSFS variables


Recommended Posts

why some offsets variables that exist via simconnect,

especially the new Drone specific ones (e.g. 'DRONE CAMERA FOLLOW' or 'DRONE CAMERA LOCKED' or 'Toggle Plane Controls' in drone mode)

still don't appear in the list of offsets FSUIPC7 (and FSInterrogate) variables ?

Is there a way to address them directly in vb.net without going through an integration of SimConnect APIs?

Thank you

FSUIPC does not store all simulator variables (simvars), only a subset. There are far too many to be held in the available offset area.
However, facilities are provided so that you can add any simvar to a "free for general use" offset for both reading and writing/updating (if the simvar is settable) - see the section Adding Simulator variables (simvars) to FSUIPC offsets in the Advanced User guide.

As for FSInterrogate, that reads FSUIPC offsets not simvars. The default offsets it shows has not been updated for many years (since FSUIPC4 in 2012!), but the offsets it shows are editable and stored in a *.FSI file, with the default/provided one being FSUIPC.FSI,
