Weapon information with Simconnect

Hi all,
I'm looking for a way to get bullets from sim connect, and get some information about them to store for later.

Currently what i need is the Position/Angle when they are created, as well as the point that they collide with the ground/other objects.

Thanks in advance

Using SimConnect to Get the current weather from Prepar3D

Hi All,
I am developing a weather tool for use with Prepar3D, but i'm having some difficulty finding variables for the current weather in Prepar3D.
Is there any way to find the current cloud types, visibility and wind speeds, and output them to SimConnect?

Thanks in advance

Re: Crazy number outputs from simconnect, not sure where to start.

Okay thanks for that..

I have converted to software to use Doubles, and the same issue persists.
I'm just going to put it down to the flight models i'm testing with (which all seem inconsistent in the variables that they output)

Thanks all for the advice.

Crazy number outputs from simconnect, not sure where to start.

Hi, i'm working on some external gauges for Prepar3d, and i can't understand some of the values that Simconnect is outputting. One of them is the ELECTRICAL BATTERY VOLTAGE Simulation variable, which seems to dart around numbers like 3.058675e+28, and other times it just outputs NaN. The variables u...

Changing the location of Menus in Prepar3d

Hi all, I've been using a multi monitor setup with Prepar3d, and was wondering if there's a way to assign which screen the menu will open on by default. Currently its either the center of my primary display, or the center of the window in Prepar3d, but I'm wondering if I can put it on a separate mon...
