[BUG] Alternate Air Template incapable of handling multiple engines

Trying to use the provided templates where possible. In this case, the sub-template:

ASOBO_ENGINE_Alternate_Air_SubTemplate

is written in a manner that makes seemingly makes it impossible to utilize more than one of these controls. It appears to set the parameter <LEVER_ID>Alternate_Air</LEVER_ID> in a Type="Override", which then seems that it isn't able to be set from a component that (in my case) is referencing ASOBO_ENGINE_Lever_AlternateAir_Template.

In case it's not clear, this is for a twin engine aircraft that has an alternate air control lever for each engine.

Hello @MV-JimStewart and thank you for reporting this.

I created a ticket on our side and I will let you know when I know more.
In the meantime, as a workarround, you can create a custom template based on this one, which fits your needs.


Regards,
Boris
