I don't think this has been done before, if it has I've not found it.
Change tanks on the Texan without all the fumbling around.
You'll need FSUIPC and this http://www.mediafire.com/file/d49o4sk3s93nwd9/A2A+T6+tank+select+macro.zip little beauty. Made by my good friend Roman Stoviak. Thanks mate.
You can assign buttons/switches to Tank Left, Right and Off. Great if you like formation flying. Or if you don't.

200 views and 19 downloads? Did no one think was a good idea? :?

I shouldn't take it to heart Ron. :wink: I think quite a few of us geeky FSUIPC-types already have fairly chunky text macros covering stuff like this.

Thanks for the post though - I hate to think of you pouting over your Shiraz somewhere in Chelmsford! :mrgreen:

I'm not taking it to heart, nor am I pouting. So this has already been done? Like I said, I haven't come across it if it has.

Yes, there was a bit of discussion of it back here. I do agree with Jen's point in that thread that this would be a rather handy function to go in the input configurator. :)

Have you ever checked-out the LINDA plug-in for FSUIPC Ron? http://fs-linda.com/

Cheers,
Nick

As I said in that thread

Quote:
I mentioned this to a pal and he graciously made me an Lvar, Lua or macro or somesuch. Anyway, I plonked it into Modules, a few clicks in FSUIPC and Bingo! Off, One or Two tanks selected. Brilliant!


All I've done is to make that little programme available to others, who, like me, that may not be so smart.

Back in the FSX/P3Dv3 days I had my A2A P-40 configured so that Shift+F would move the fuel tank selector clockwise and Ctrl+F would move it counter clockwise. Wish I could do that for the T-6.

Assuming the use of FSUIPC:

The L:Var for the T-6 fuel tank select is: L:FSelT6State=SET with parameters 0, 1, 2

0 = off
1 = right wing
2 = left wing

One could also use two switches/key-combos to set 1 or 2 or one for INC, 2 max and one for DEC, 0 min.

Since I have essentially an 'unlimited' number of switches at my disposal, I have a separate switch for
each state thus I use the SET specification.

I'm guessing a majority of people aren't running the payware version of FSUIPC and therefor can't use the little app.
I tried it and it's excellent. Thanks for the heads up and link.

It never occurred to me that anyone didn't have a full version of FSUIPC. How the heck do they manage? :? Glad you find it handy. :D
