Default F-100D machmeter

Recommended Posts

Hello to everyone

I searched in the forums but without success :dntknw:

So here is the question:is there a way to make the machmeter installed in the default F-100D work?

before takeoff,on the runway you can see the scale of the .2 mach,but while gaining some speed you have no more indication.......if you take a look at the pic, at 5000' and 520kts the Hun should be more or less .85 mach fast,but there are no readings of the mach number

does someone has any solution please?

That's displaying .5 Mach. Look at the numbers...1, 1.5 mach.

 

The cockpit ini shows the gauge only has 2 displayed values...

 

[MachIndicator]

Type=MACH_NUMBER_INDICATOR

NodeName=machscale

MovementType=ROTATION_Z

Set[01].Position=0.0

Set[01].Value=0.0

Set[02].Position=220.0

Set[02].Value=2.2

 

Interesting to note, the A-4B shows a few more...

 

[MachScale]

Type=MACH_NUMBER_INDICATOR

NodeName=mach wheel

MovementType=ROTATION_Y

Set[01].Position=0.0

Set[01].Value=0.0

Set[02].Position=-202.5

Set[02].Value=0.5

Set[03].Position=-269.0

Set[03].Value=0.8

Set[04].Position=-329.0

Set[04].Value=1.2

 

To add more readouts, you'd just need to figure out the needle postions for which ever you want, and add them to the cockpit ini

 

You can always cross check with the HUDData ini set to 'DisplayDebut=TRUE", which will give you IAS, TAS, and Mach number.
