Gees

In game landing analysis for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020.

Update

Bouncing after landing is now detected + G's a bit higher + Hide button + A bug fix.

For changelogs, please check the releases.

How to Install/Use?

Download the latest release from here (Assets -> File-that-is-not-source-code.zip). Unzip to your favorite location for MSFS2020 landing monitors, and start Gees.exe. You'll see a window like this in the bottom right.

Screenshot

The app itself runs in the background, and you can find this status window in the status tray, as this icon:

Trey Icon

That's it. When you start the sim the app will automatically connect and when you land, you'll get a window similar to this slide out top-left:

Slider MSFS view

You can start it before, or after the MSFS, it doesn't matter.

How to Uninstall?

Delete the folder where the Gees.exe resides.

What is measured?

Descent rate at the landing in feet per minute

Self explanatory.

G force at the touchdown

Maximum G force impact at the moment of touchdown. Should be in theory related to the descent rate, undercarriage dampers and how much the passengers are nervous.

Airspeed and ground speed at the touchdown

Self explanatory.

Wind speed and direction at the touchdown

There's a nice arrow, showing where the wind is blowing from

Sideslip at the touchdown

Did you do the proper de-crab maneuver, or the plane is going sideways on touchdown in the crosswind? The higher, the worse. Keep it close to 0 degrees or you might break the gear, or pop the tire (well, probably not in the sim).

How to compile it

It's a c# WPF application. You'll need a Visual Studio with .NET 4.7 and the following nuget libraries:

CTrue.FsConnect
Octokit
PrettyBin
CsvHelper

    Very useful little tool with some minor issues. For example I´d prefer to have an option to disable the white line on left side of my screen. Apart from that, it´s a nice little program to have.
    Well done!

    Decent app with huge potential. Couple of things: 1. Could you please make an option to disable the blue line on the top left of the screen? That is an immersion killer for me. 2. I found that sometimes the scorecard would pop in and out in the middle of a flight in the air randomly for a half second or so.

    "How many passengers are nervous"
    How do you know if they are nervous?
    Are they glass?
    I did a -78 FPM touchdown with the Cub and it said "2.06G"

    Yeah, the taildraggers are sometimes not accurate, I noticed that.
    As I mentioned many times - I'm not inventing the G's, but reading them out from the sim. I have no control over the things that are not simulated well, or if there's a glitch during the landing or whatever.
    There's a disparity definitely between the G's and FPM's sometime. I would say that the second is more often wrong than the first. But G's also are not accurate sometimes, especially for the taildraggers.

    Also - G's are not just vertical. Also lateral/roll force is counted. So it might be that.

    Or it's the frowning face? I was thinking of removing that tbh.

    Hi, its really good but i thik that the G is too high.
    It is only my opinion.

    Thanks for that app :)

    It's not high, it's instantaneous peak G's, so anything up to 2G can be considered normal. Also it's not just vertical G's, you may butter it, but are going sideways and then you get a kick to the side (Irl I believe this feeling is much worse than the vertical one actually). Maybe I was a bit too strict with frowning, but this is what you get by rating someone's stuff, and why I'm really hesitant to do so :)

    hi - i love this, nice and simple. But like some others I find it sometimes does not register my landings even though its running.

    Not sure what else to say - operating with the latest version and latest MSFS. Started before the recent patches.

    Can you update this plugin please? It no longer works with the latest update. I've opened it while i was in the air, on the ground before take off, on the ground before taxi and when I land it does nothing. This is a great tool to have so I would like if i could continue using it.

    Please tell me the game version and the app version, as I'm not quite sure what to update or what's the problem. I use it almost daily (game ver 1.11.6.0, app version 1.1.0) without any changes or issues.
    Was there any other change to your system besides the game update. Antivirus, firewall... And more importantly: do you have other (out of the game, simconnect) addons (exe apps), and do they still work?

    1.11.6.0, app version 1.1.0. No changes at all, it was working fine before the update. I use PACX, flightshare while it is running. Same setup as before.

    essentially, the APP WORKS, says it's CONNECTED to the sim, but the POPUP IS NOT SHOWING, and the landing is NOT WRITTEN IN THE LOG, regardless if you have started it before or after the game startup? if all 4 are happening simultaneously, my honest answer is that I don't know what is the issue on your machine. (sorry for caps, don't know how to emphasize important points here in the comments.). The only thing I can say, try it once without the PACX and FlightShare running, just to see if there's some issue with multiple apps using simconnect.

    I uninstalled it (well deleted the folder) and reinstalled it and it fixed itself. So good to go for now :)

    Super easy to use, delightful little piece of software. Runs in the tray and pops up right at the moment of landing with it's judgy little synopsis ready to make you feel bad about all your hard work. Why did you have to give it a smiley-face-to-upset-face rating for g-load? Now I'm constantly seeking it's approval with every touchdown! (Please say you're proud of me, Gees.exe! No! Ur sad! I'll be better, I promise I can change etc).

    Love the fact it writes the data as a little excel file and can show you in app. Don't know if it's possible to get it to pick up which airport/runway you landed at? That would be cool to record as well. Oh and maybe a little skin option to change the colour preferences of the UI? No big, it's good fun as it is!

    I'm trying to run this remotely on a network PC by editing the SimConnect.cfg file but everytime I run your mod, the SimConnect.cfg is overwritten and goes back to default. Is there any way to use a custom SimConnect.cfg file to run this in a networked setup? Thanks.

    I know, it pisses me off a bit that with each update I need to check all of the things, and being external app it's not great.
    I think with the next addon update I will re do this completely to run in-game - like my other (FSPM VFR map) project

    A very good mod. But I have a question that the G load is high(I think this landing is good but it says 2 Gs.)

  • image
    scelt replied Author

    it's G peak at the impact. it is what the sim say it is, I don't invent the G force, so it's likely a smaller plane, with no damping, and a bit tougher landing (2G, for a peak is not particularly bad though). But I wouldn't call it good. I mean, for me, maybe 1 in 20 landings gets over 2G, and it's usually a bush plane - tail dragger, off the runway. In any case, I can reduce the G artificially, people would definitely like it more, but also, you can practice a bit more.
