Are there any plans to create an online API to show a players location and details?

Are there any plans to create an online API (not simconnect) that can provide details about the players plane, location etc and maybe adjust some settings?

Ideally, a user could go to a third party site that provides missions, sign in with their account and authorize the connection. The third party site could get details of their plane and location and maybe adjust payload, fuel, difficulty options and mission objectives.

Up to 5 attachments (including images) can be used with a maximum of 4.8 MiB each and 23.8 MiB total.

Why not just use a Simconnect program to transmit that data to a server?

Hello @ruairiau

There are no such plans at the moment.
It seems to be very specific so I doubt we could dedicate resource for this but you can still create an idea and submit to vote.

Regards,
Sylvain
