LocPac Inclusion for Missing Manufacturer

Any possibility of adding the following lines to your default en-US.locPak ?

My required Aircraft (Scottish Aviation Bulldog) entries are Missing

"ATCCOM.AC_MODEL BULLDOG.0.text": "Bulldog",
"ATCCOM.AC_MODEL BULLDOG.0.tts": "Bulldog",
"ATCCOM.ATC_NAME SCOTTISHAVIATION.0.text": "Scottish Aviation",
"ATCCOM.ATC_NAME SCOTTISHAVIATION.0.tts": "Scottish Aviation",

Hello.

Have you tried adding those strings to your own package locPak file?
If so, this is not working?

Regards,
Sylvain

I can now confirm that the addition of the above lines are Ineffective when added to the product Local En-US.locPac .. It is however fully operable when added to the default MSFS En-US.locPac stored in Onestore\FS_BASE folder ,. which of course we cannot write to or distribute with the product

@ModelMuncher Can you try adding a @yourpackagename, in front of the TT entry in your aircraft.cfg. This will force the localization manager to consider your own locPak file instead of the fs-base one.

Just tested it on the Da62 sample provided with the SDK and it works.

You also want to remove the spaces in your locPak file entries:
"ATCCOM.AC_MODEL BULLDOG.0.text" should be "ATCCOM.AC_MODEL_BULLDOG.0.text"

use

"$$:Bulldog"


using $$ will trigger the Text-To-Speech stuff in MSFS directly
