Has anyone set AI aircraft afterburner via Simconnect?

Postby stella47 » Mon Aug 10, 2020 9:10 am

Hello, im kim.

i have made a simulation environment for the air warfare.
To do this, i tuned aircraft models (air/cfg files) and created AI Objects with Simobject functions.

I used functions below
- SimConnect_AICreateNonATCAircraft
- SimConnect_AICreateSimulatedObject


My problem is "the created AI object cannot generate afterburner thrust, it just perform military thrust on 100% throttle".
A simluation aircraft controlled by joystick can do afterburner thrust.
it was verified by getting values of Simulation variables like following as.
- TURB ENG N1/N2, CORRECTED N1/N2
- TURB ENG AFTERBURNER:index
- TURB ENG JET THRUST:index
- TURB ENG FUEL FLOW PPH:index

When the throttle of a created AI aircraft is set 100%, even afterburner state(TURB ENG AFTERBURNER:index) do not turn on.

However, human-controlled aircraft do turn on.

Acording to Prepar3d Learning Center, simulation variables for afterburner are not settable

It seems there is a hidden switch to turn on afterburner, but i have not found it.

Has anyone set up AI aircraft afterburner via Simconnect?
