Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

Use easily with P3D V4 thanks to LUA script

Recommended Posts

For those who desperate to use this aircraft with V4 and don't want to bother "fixing it" at every start up, below is a small LUA script which I load automatically with FSUIPC when selecting the DA20 (it set "instructor mode", this repairs the aircraft, then set it to "ready for take off", and set few of my necessary settings). Pretty much anything can be done like this, if you know the LVARS (I have the full list, but I'm not sure I'm allowed to post it here)

 


ipc.writeLvar('L:SETTING_INSTRUCTOR_MODE',1)
ipc.sleep(500)
ipc.writeLvar('L:SETTING_STATUS_PRE_TAKEOFF',1)
ipc.writeLvar('L:LEVER_PROPELLER_PITCH_MODE',1)
ipc.writeLvar('L:CONDITION_GPS500',200)
ipc.writeLvar('KT76A_simple',1)
ipc.writeLvar('KX125_simple',1)
ipc.writeLvar('L:WHEEL_FAIRING_RIGHT',1)
ipc.writeLvar('L:WHEEL_FAIRING_LEFT',1)
ipc.writeLvar('L:WHEEL_FAIRING_NOSE',1)

 

last 3 lines put the wheel fairing in place ;)

Hi,I'll try too, to get this one to work on P3D V4 too. (Prepar3D_v4_Professional_4.2.21.24048)
Your LUA script works fine. But when I switch in to the VirtualCockpit it crash.

Any idee to fix this?

 

What is the right statement for Cold and Dark? 

ipc.writeLvar('L:SETTING_STATUS_PRE_TAKEOFF',1)
ipc.writeLvar('L:SETTING_STATUS_COLD_AND_DARK',1)?

Can you give me the link to full list of LVAR commands ?

How do you run this script?

Hi,

 

you need full (paid) version of FSUIPC, and copy this lines in a LUA file (txt file to which you change extension to "lua"), place it in the "modules" folder of P3D. Then for your test you can assign a key to start the script in the FSUIPC settings. once all set, you can autorun the script when DA20 is loaded (check FSUIPC documentation).

 

list of LVAR is there: http://vr-vfr.ovh/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/DA20-LVARS.txt
