V-One Gauge for B737-200/Adv/C/F v1.8 Update

It's been 5 years since I've released the V-One gauge for the B737 and it's time for an update!
While Captain Sim has updated the 737 a couple of time since then, the PDSC isn't fully functional just quite yet.

I've updated the V-One gauge so you can now select Maximum Continuous Thrust climb with de-rate and EPR or IAS cruise.

This gauge has been tested in FSX Acceleration only, it's unknown if it will function in P3D.

Here are some of the features:
- All voice call-out sounds replaced.
- Captain Sim sound module used for all sounds.
- Appropriate labels are displayed when selecting specific display toggles.
- Set flap position with mouse wheel while in 'Current Flaps' display.
- Adjust trim with mouse wheel while in 'Current Trim' display.
- Maximum Continuous Thrust EPR calculated for climb with de-rate option setting (0.0 to -0.15)
- Cruise EPR hold with +/-0.001 adjustments.
- Cruise IAS hold with +/-1 knot adjustments.
- V1, Vr and V2 Datacard calculations display instantaneously when flap lever is set.
- Flap call-out during descent will repeat for flap positions 5 through 40.
- MCT drives EPR bugs while using MCT climb control.
- EPR bugs follow EPR set-point.
- Vref select toggle 15, 30, 40 (30 default)
- Automatic setting of weight, (LB/KG), pressure (inMg/MB) and temperature (F/C) based on FSX units.
- Maximum Continuous Thrust display (MCT)
- Wind display / Maneuvering Speed display.
- Altitude call-out gauge included (optional install).

Now available in the Avsim library, search for:
v-one_csb737_v1.8_update.zip

I found out the IAS hold doesn't work unless you make a change in the aircraft.cfg file.

In the [Autopilot] section, change:

  autothrottle_arming_required=1

TO:

autothrottle_arming_required=0

Thanks! Hope you enjoy the extra stuff!

You don't have to use the new features at all. The gauge still works the way it always did  Cool

Hi Paul,

I've copied and pasted in the Avsim file library, but it says that file does not exist.

Have also searched for V-one gauge, etc...

Could you provide a direct link?

Thanks,
Scott

It works fine for me. It needs the '.zip' in the search term as well.

Anyway, here's the link:

Hi,

Thanks for the link. Actually, I just happened to find the file before coming over here and seeing your message.

Don't know why it  wouldn't work for me. I copied the file name from Paul's post and popped it into the search at Avsim - it didn't generate any results other than a "not found" message.

Anyways, I have the file now, so all is good  Cool

Cheers,
Scott

This little utility/gauge is like having an FO...Who's job it is to prepare the TOLD card in the "real-world"...and do the walkaround in the rain...LOL Actually, I've done many a walkaround in rain, sleet, snow, freezing rain and blazing heat...BUT, it's what we lived for...
