Manual supercharger gear shifting?

The engine parameters that were added for supercharger definition are a good start, but it currently only allows for a supercharger to shift automatically based on altitude.

We have multiple projects that have a supercharger where the shift is pilot-controlled. On the surface it seems that it would be a simply matter to give optional control of the supercharger shifting to an event. Would this be possible to include?

Ideally, we'd like events for shift up, shift down, and gear set, along with SimVars to query.

This is going to be an important one for the vast majority of WW2 era warbirds.

I believe this is indispensable to properly model a WW II warbird supercharger.

Hello

We have nothing planned in the short term for this.
Could you post this as an idea so people can upvote it and it gets reviewed properly?

Regards,
