EDDF papi angle switch

Recommended Posts

One of the problems has been fixed in the latest update, but nothing was said about papi angles?  How to switch them from 3.2 to 3.0 (and vice versa)?  unrealized?

Sorry, but that could not be fixed, why:

 

In real world, the decision, which IlS and PAPI system is active (and so which approach angle must be used) is done by the tower of the airport. Only one ILS and PAPI is set active the same time. In the simulator, this „persons“ are not available, to define this. 

 

The sim codes give us the change to define two ILS systems with different frequency and angles to be active the same time. But two PAPIs with different angles active the same time, you will not want to see it, or?

And, the only possible (in theory) solution could be, the switch the PAPI angle based on the NAV 1 frequency (ILS) you set in your cockpit, but since FSX SDK and still with the newest P3D V5 SDK, the Info which Frequency you have set, is not anymore available in scenery object code area. In FS9, no problem, lol.
 

When you use the 3.2 Ils, the Papi needs to be ignored.

Or🤗

I suggest just adding a second AFCAD to switch it through the configurator before starting sim.

For your part, only make a new AFCAD with an angle of 3.2, and I will set all other navigation as in truth.

How do you like this idea?
