Euroscope Sweatbox Headings


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, this is my first time making anything for the ES sim, so it's bugging me a little, and I can't find it in the docomeentation. How do you get a/c to start off on a certain heading (runway heading, in this case)? As they all start off hdg 090 unless I have a fix for them to go direct to.

 

Thanks!

Aircraft Position

You can define as many number of aircraft as you need for the session. Be aware that simulating an aircraft probably needs more concentration than controlling them. To define an aircraft you should define the starting position and altitude:

 

@<transponder flag>:<callsign&gt:<squawk code>:1:<latitude>:<longitude>:<altitude>:0:<heading>:0

Where

 

* transponder flag can be N for normal or S for stand by transponder mode

* latitude and longitude can be the format found in the sectorfile or simple double values

* do not forget the static 1 at the 4th position and the three static 0 values at the end (they are there for some technical reasons only)

* the heading value is a bit complicated, use the requested heading in degrees and use the following formula to decide the value to be put here: ((int) ( Heading * 2.88 + 0.5 )) << 2 ) - or if it is easier: ( Heading * 2.88 + 0.5 ) * 4.

 

Examples:

 

@N:MAH661:2622:1:N048.10.38.498:E018.10.36.537:15000:0:0:0
@N:MAH1501:2632:1:46.793880004674:17.795807317989:17000:312:4192376:450
@N:AZA525:2606:1:N047.26.41.961:E019.15.29.777:550:0:0:0

 

BUT there is a reported bug, that the value is not read by ES.
