Is inductor compass really supported in the sim ?

Hi guys,

This week I was finishing up the code for my aircraft. This one has an inductor compass but I have the impression that the instrument does not want to know anything and does not respond. I used SimWatcher to be sure, and indeed everything is at 0.00


Here is how it looks like in the cockpit:

- The heading selector modeled by a knob / CODE:

- The derivation indicator going from -10° to 10° / CODE:

If someone has an idea I would be grateful

Hi Jimmy,
Since you have an inductor compass, you need to be sure that it's properly declared to your cockpit.cfg (See the docs here, in the [DIRECTION_INDICATORS] section)

Example:

[DIRECTION_INDICATORS]
direction_indicator.0 = 1,0
induction_compass.0 = 2


Then, if your induction compass is driven by the anenometer, you must check that you have added it :

[ANEMOMETERS]
anemometer.0 = 1,1,1


We will change the docs to make it more clear ;)
