Functional - Rudimentary ATC.

Banner Image


The pseudo ATC enhances the standard DCS ATC functions.

In particular, a menu entry "Pseudo ATC" is created in the "F10 Other..." radiomenu.

Features:

  • Weather report at nearby airbases and mission waypoints.
  • Report absolute bearing and range to nearest airports and mission waypoints.
  • Report current altitude AGL of own aircraft.
  • Upon request, ATC reports altitude until touchdown.
  • Works with static and dynamic weather.
  • Player can select the unit system (metric or imperial) in which information is reported.
  • All maps supported (Caucasus, NTTR, Normandy, Persian Gulf and all future maps).

Adds some rudimentary ATC functionality via the radio menu.

#PSEUDOATC PSEUDOATC

Adds some rudimentary ATC functionality via the radio menu.

Local weather reports can be requested for nearby airports and player's mission waypoints. The weather report includes

  • QFE and QNH pressures,
  • Temperature,
  • Wind direction and strength.

The list of airports is updated every 60 seconds. This interval can be adjusted by the function PSEUDOATC.SetMenuRefresh(interval).

Likewise, absolute bearing and range to the close by airports and mission waypoints can be requested.

The player can switch the unit system in which all information is displayed during the mission with the MOOSE settings radio menu. The unit system can be set to either imperial or metric. Altitudes are reported in feet or meter, distances in kilometers or nautical miles, temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius and QFE/QNH pressues in inHg or mmHg. Note that the pressures are also reported in hPa independent of the unit system setting.

In bad weather conditions, the ATC can "talk you down", i.e. will continuously report your altitude on the final approach. Default reporting time interval is 3 seconds. This can be adjusted via the PSEUDOATC.SetReportAltInterval(interval) function. The reporting stops automatically when the player lands or can be stopped manually by clicking on the radio menu item again. So the radio menu item acts as a toggle to switch the reporting on and off.

Scripting

Scripting is almost trivial. Just add the following two lines to your script:

pseudoATC=PSEUDOATC:New()
pseudoATC:Start()

Return value:

#number:

The ScheduleID of the planned schedule.

Schedule a new time event.

Note that the schedule will only take place if the scheduler is started. Even for a single schedule event, the scheduler needs to be started also.

Defined in:

Parameters:

#number Start

Specifies the amount of seconds that will be waited before the scheduling is started, and the event function is called.

#number Repeat

Specifies the interval in seconds when the scheduler will call the event function.

#number RandomizeFactor

Specifies a randomization factor between 0 and 1 to randomize the Repeat.

#number Stop

Specifies the amount of seconds when the scheduler will be stopped.

#function SchedulerFunction

The event function to be called when a timer event occurs. The event function needs to accept the parameters specified in SchedulerArguments.

#table ...

Optional arguments that can be given as part of scheduler. The arguments need to be given as a table { param1, param 2, ... }.

Return value:

#number:

The ScheduleID of the planned schedule.

Stops the Schedule.

Defined in:

Parameter:

#function SchedulerFunction

The event function to be called when a timer event occurs. The event function needs to accept the parameters specified in SchedulerArguments.

Set the Class Event processing Priority.

The Event processing Priority is a number from 1 to 10, reflecting the order of the classes subscribed to the Event to be processed.

Defined in:

Parameter:

#number EventPriority

The Event processing Priority.

Return value:

self

Set a state or property of the Object given a Key and a Value.

Note that if the Object is destroyed, nillified or garbage collected, then the Values and Keys will also be gone.

Defined in:

Parameters:

Object

The object that will hold the Value set by the Key.

Key

The key that is used as a reference of the value. Note that the key can be a #string, but it can also be any other type!

Value

The value to is stored in the object.

Return value:

The Value set.

Trace a function logic level 1.

Can be anywhere within the function logic.

Defined in:

Parameter:

Arguments

A #table or any field.

Trace a function logic level 2.

Can be anywhere within the function logic.

Defined in:

Parameter:

Arguments

A #table or any field.

Trace a function logic level 3.

Can be anywhere within the function logic.

Defined in:

Parameter:

Arguments

A #table or any field.

Trace all methods in MOOSE

Defined in:

Parameter:

#boolean TraceAll

true = trace all methods in MOOSE.

Set tracing for a class

Defined in:

Parameter:

#string Class

Set tracing for a specific method of class

Defined in:

Parameters:

#string Class

#string Method

Set trace level

Defined in:

Parameter:

#number Level

Set trace off.

Defined in:

Usage:

-- Switch the tracing Off
BASE:TraceOff()

Set trace on.

Defined in:

Usage:

-- Switch the tracing On
BASE:TraceOn()

Set trace on or off Note that when trace is off, no BASE.Debug statement is performed, increasing performance! When Moose is loaded statically, (as one file), tracing is switched off by default.

So tracing must be switched on manually in your mission if you are using Moose statically. When moose is loading dynamically (for moose class development), tracing is switched on by default.

Defined in:

Parameter:

#boolean TraceOnOff

Switch the tracing on or off.

Usage:

-- Switch the tracing On
BASE:TraceOnOff( true )

-- Switch the tracing Off
BASE:TraceOnOff( false )
