...I can never remember this stuff...

 

The data ini statements for the fuel tank are in liters or Kg???

 

whilst, oth, the cockpit ini lists as lbs...

 

what I'm tryin to do, is get the fuel gauge "close" to what it should be to the internal tank.

 

here's the fuel tank statement:

 

[FuselageFuelCell]

SystemType=FUEL_TANK

FuelTankID=1

MaxFuelAmount=1034.21

SelfHealing=TRUE

FireSuppression=TRUE

MinExtentPosition=-0.60,-1.38, 0.73

MaxExtentPosition= 0.60,-0.32,-0.85

HasArmor=TRUE

ArmorMaterial=STEEL

Armor[FRONT].Thickness=12

Armor

.Thickness=12

Armor

.Thickness=12

Armor[REAR].Thickness=12

Armor[bOTTOM].Thickness=12

 

btw, the actual gallonege is 380, which is 1438 liters (or apporx 3041 lbs)

 

I forgot the question I was asking....draT!!!!

 

so, then to adjust the needle, it just then a matter of figuring out the angle??

 

[internalFuelGauge]

Type=INETERNAL_FUEL_QUANTITY_INDICATOR

NodeName=needle_fuel

MovementType=ROTATION_Y

ValueUnit=LB

Set[01].Position=-135.0

Set[01].Value=0.0

Set[02].Position=330.0 (not correct, just as an example)

Set[02].Value=3000.0

Yeah, kilos for the _DATA.ini and you can set the unit to whatever you want in the _COCKPIT.ini.

 

That being said though, provided the gauge is a linear increase (i.e. only two positions like your example above) it doesn't really matter what units you use.

either I'm smarter than I think or I got very lucky!

 

I'm within ~1 pound of Real world values!! Now, I can finish off the decals

 

thanks for the assists, people!
