SimControlX is a powerful iPad instructor station app for your simulator which provides you the ability to reposition aircraft instantly, change wind and weather, fail engine components or instruments and much more, for realistic training without ever needing to get out of the captain’s chair or pausing the simulation.
The aircraft directory organization changed from X-Plane 10 to X-Plane 11. SimControlX expects that users organize any third-party aircraft directories using the following format options, in keeping with how Laminar Research provides their default aircraft –
<X-Plane 11 base directory>/Aircraft/<Category or Publisher Name>/<Third-Party Aircraft folder>
Alternatively, you may put all your third party aircraft in a single directory like –
<X-Plane 11 base directory>/Aircraft/My Third Party Aircrafts/<Third-Party Aircraft folder>
After organizing your third-party aircrafts, simply click “Reload Aircraft” on the Server software to rebuild the aircraft database. SimControlX should now display your aircraft on the aircraft page.
In most cases, this is because X-Plane is working in the background to load relevant changes according to your input, such as loading a new aircraft or airport. All you have to do is wait for X-Plane to finish loading and you can continue flying.
Yes, you can set weather or failures or airports on the flight sim program and SimControlX will adapt to the changes, however they may not reflect in the button on the app page (i.e. if you fail the AI from within the flight sim program not the app, the AI failure button may still say working). You can override the failures or weather set by the computer by resetting it from SimControlX.
After you scroll to the time you wish to set manually, or press “Set Noon” or “Set Midnight” you must press the button in blue to the right of the time selector that says “Change Time” for the visual to update.
