YAACARS - XACARS-Plugin replacement

Hi, thanks for the nice new tracker Teddi. Will reward you later on for your efforts.
About the notitions by the copilot, about the landing lights. I flying always the smaller stuff by GA & Business planes.
Here in Belgium are the landing lights only used during depart & landing, during the latest moment of the approach when you enter the airport region with the intention to land. Those airplanes (GA) will never flies above FL100. The smaller business airplanes like PA32/46, TBM8, PC12 will use their landing lights also only during dep/arr in the airport regions.
Maybe a clickable check-option to mark that the flight is flown by a plane under a specific class or weight could fix that. Or if the plane is under specific weight, that the tracker no further focus on that landing lights?
What is your thought about landing lights usage under FL100 by Business & GA -class?

Kind Regards,
TimoDD / www.q2logistics.be

Hey Timo! Good to see you here again :-)

For now I don't have any opinion on the copilot callouts. For now, they are meant as information. If we want to bring this into FTW as kind of a reward system, then we have to make sure to consider all these different options - by simulator, by plane type, by local "laws" or whatever ... looks like a big undertake even to create a structure for it. I'm afraid, there is more than just one checkbox needed ... :-)
For now, I put it on the todo list. Maybe we can at least create a local configuration for YAACARS to act differently "per plane", so everyone can change or disable features to own needs.

Cheers,
Markus

Yesterday i tried to use the yaarcars plugin on xplane with the ZIBO 737-800, But i get some Problems with the datarefs, after i deleted the Plugin and use only the Little .lua Script, I can fly without Problems.

Maybe the xlua plugin is also used by the ZIBO mod and it can only be loaded once ... interesting. I could also provide a small python script for the dataref creation to replace the xlua plugin. So people will have at least the choice ...
