Updated WMKK/KUL K.L. International Airport (KLIA) Scenery for X-Plane

I spent a few hours updating my Kuala Lumpur International Airport (WMKK) scenery for X-Plane. I've added Taxi Routes for every single taxiway in the airport. Taxi routes are used to guide AI aircraft around the airport, without which they will taxi through buildings and across grass areas. That involved not only tracing out each taxiway in WED, but also naming them. This also means the ATC is now a bit more intelligent when guiding you around the airport, i.e. when requesting taxi clearan...

Removing the Frame from a X-Plane Garmin G1000 Popout Window

The Garmin G1000's displays have a 4:3 ratio. Since these are getting harder to find these days, I wanted to see what the X-Plane Garmin G1000 looks like without the bezel, when stretched full screen on a 16:9 monitor.

So let's just say ... IF ... I were to do this ... what would it entail? Two LCD panels to...

Linux UDP Network Client Library for X-Plane 10 and 11

Up till now, I've been using the ExtPlane plugin to integrate my 737 home cockpit components with the X-Plane Flight Simulator. ExtPlane is a third party plugin that gives networked devices access to X-Plane's DataRefs and Commands. With it, external devices can query the current state of the Flight Simulator, such as the current airspeed and elevation, or the present position of a switch. It can also be used to manipulate state within the Flight Simulator, such as to change the state of a...
