Hi Stuart

this is the new version 3 of the MFD. Download it from
https://www.dropbox.com/s/twxfjfylvcmmw07/Helionix-MFD-v3.zip?dl=1

LOWW ILS29 APP with one engine inoperable

Image

Changes:
    *engine torque calculations have been moved from mfd.nas to property rules in filter.xml (only the torque calculations, you still need the mfd.nas file)
    *added fuel endurance (hours,mins) to the VMD
    *added master list (ML) in FND. for driving the ML the new file "ec145/Nasal/masterlist.nas" needs to be included in the aircraft preferences file. Messages to be displayed in the ML can be configured there together with a condition for displaying the message (see examples there).
    *Navigation sources for the CDI and the two bearing needles on FND compass rose are now selectable:
    set /instrumentation/glass/fnd/navsource to {"","NAV2","FMS"}
    for {VOR1,VOR2,FMS}
    set /instrumentation/glass/fnd/bearingsource to {false, true} for {VOR1,FMS}
    set /instrumentation/glass/fnd/bearingsource[1] to {false, true} for {ADF,VOR2}

    even if these property values are not set the three needles still work and default to
    VOR1, VOR1 and ADF, respectively.
    *dimensions of MFD increased by 5% according to data found on internet (via a "scale" animation in the xml model file. Maybe this is a
    bit "unconventional"?). You need to rearrange the main instrument panel a bit to compensate for the new MFD size. I think the ECP should be reduced in size to match the width of the MFDs.
    *A NAVD mode has been added (still heavily WIP), that shows up to 10 symbols for flight plan waypoints, navaids and airports within
    range. "/instrumentation/glass/navd/range" controls the range (in nm) of the flight plan view on the NAVD.
    *The MFD instruments are now located in EUcopter-mfd0.xml, EUcopter-mfd1.xml, EUcopter-mfd2.xml files. Each MFD is capable of displaying any of the 3 panel modes FND, VMD, NAVD.
    Clicking on the MFD bezel allows to cycle through the 3 panel types. the respective status of each individual MFD is stored in "/instrumentation/mfd[i]/mode"

Some comment architecturewise: Consider to keep my approach to have the MFD code residing in Aircraft/Instruments and Aircraft/Instruments-3d. With this approach the guys that integrated the MFD in the Cougar e.g. and you could avoid to create multiple copies of that MFD code for different aircraft. This would improve the maintainabiltiy of the code and allow to publish new versions of the MFD code independently of aircraft.

Thanks for the update.
Putting stuff in Aircraft/Instrumnts etc causes issues for those who cant do more that basically plug the aircraft in. If its best in their perhaps it should be submitted for inclusion in the main FG package ?

Ok, will think on a better solution to structure the MFD code for more easy integration in the next version.

And I found this :

Together with the MFD dimensions from the previous post it should allow to make a very realistic arrangement of the main panel instruments.

Hello

this is version 4 of the MFD. This time I have done the integration into the EC145 already. So all the path strings should be fixed, ready to fit the EC145 model code.

Download from here

Image

News:

* Reorganized model folder structure. All MFD source files, 3D model and textures are now collected under one common path "ec145/Model/instruments/EUcopter-mfd/"

* Buttons on the MFD bezel are now modeled in 3D and are clickable.

* MFDs are now connectable to a power bus and have a functional power button.

* Panel power-up sequence modeled after some Airbus maintenance video found on the internet.

* NAVD display improvements: Display shows active waypoints, airports and other nav-aids positions and navaid data

* New DMAP display: Moving map (adapted from existing B787-1 Nasal code) and "database" list of navaids, airports and waypoints around, with additional
information.

* Engines torque calculation refined to match behaviour found in some EC145 engine spoolup videos found on Youtube.

* Up to four screens can be included in an aircraft mfd0.xml ... mfd3.xml (think of H175 or H160 models to come...).

* All screens can be individually configured through properties in the ec145-set file (I provide the example ec145-set file in the package).

* All the MFD related properties have been moved from property tree node "/instrumentation/glass/" to "/instrumentation/efis/" where other similar electronic flight instruments use to live.

Enjoy

Got the screen fitted, great job on those. Adding some other cosmetic upgrades to the 145 then its will be released.

Cool!

I have been thinking of modelling the EC145- type engine control panel. Is anybody working on this already?
Challange will lie in connecting the panel switches with the Nasal engine control code and properly implementing the respective functionality (e.g. the "OEI training mode" button). I can give it a try..

Nice Stuart!

Is the your rocking motion based on anything from the environment or is it strictly random? That is one effect missing from the c172p and the Cub I'd like to add, even if it is just some random motion.

Its not specified to rock anywhere, its doing that on its own. Its not like the code in the ships.
