We have started a discussion thread in GitHub to share pre-built profiles https://github.com/nguyenquyhy/Flight-Tracker-StreamDeck/discussions/128. Everyone is welcome to post their creation!

This is a plugin for Elgato Stream Deck that provides you with buttons to interface with Microsoft Flight Simulator via SimConnect. There are some preset buttons allowing you to simply drag & drop and choose the required function. There are also generic buttons and gauges allowing you to access a wide selection of SimConnect variables and events.

The buttons from this plugin have several benefits comparing to buttons with key bindings:
  • The buttons do not emulate keypress, so you don’t have to worry about matching keyboard binding in-game. You don’t have to worry about other software happen to mistakenly take those keys in either.
  • The buttons interact with the sim directly via SimConnect, so the sim does not have to be in focus. You can be reading chart (or any other software), and all buttons will still works.
  • It can show a lot of information from the sim.
  • The buttons can perform some more “advanced” interactions than normal Stream Deck buttons. For examples.
    • Holding COM/NAV button shows you a numpad to enter frequency (not available on Stream Deck Mini due to limited buttons).
    • Holding HDG button sync current heading.
    • Tapping +/- button increase/decrease 1 unit while holding does so at 10 units.

Installation from Stream Deck store (with auto update)

  1. Click More Actions button in the bottom right corner of Stream Deck software

    Hi
    Nguyenquyhy Great work :)

    I have made 2 Generic Toggle Button's for the engine start on the A320 with the 'TOGGLE_FUEL_VALVE_ENG1' and 'TOGGLE_FUEL_VALVE_ENG2' but can't find the feedback value for that, so i can se on the stream deck that it is on, and that the images changes.
    I know i can hear the engine spin up, but it could be nice to se it as on, on the stream deck!

    Edit:
    I have tried the 'GENERAL_ENG_FUEL_VALVE__1' but that dont work :(

    Do I have to do anything to update this through Stream Deck store?

    You don't have to do anything once the update reach the store. However, since the update is automatic for everyone, I normally wait a couple of days after releasing on GitHub and this site before sending the new package to Elgato to make sure there is no big issue in the new version. And then it will take a couple more days for Elgato to briefly check the update and put it in the store.

    Any chance we can get this working with the Working Title CJ4 mod?

    Unfortunately H events are internal to the sim and aren't accessible via SimConnect. I would suggest you to request WorkingTitle to expose normal SimConnect events instead, so it can play nice with all SimConnect plugins.

    How to set up the APU Master and APU Starter and the APU BLEED?

    I am only just starting to get to grips with this plugin, and it seems really good so far. What seems to be missing however (unless it is just me missing it) is a switch that can handle multiple 'Events' - where no toggle seems to exist - e.g.FUEL_SELECTOR_LEFT to switch on and FUEL_SELECTOR_OFF to switch off. Or indeed for use with switches with 3 - or more - options. Is this something that I am just missing, or perhaps something that is being worked on?

    Multiple events is not supported yet. But several users have asked for it, so we will get to that once we wrap up what we are working on.

    I couldnt get the NumPad to work on Normal StreamDeck it seems to only open a XL version and it looks all incomplete... OTHERWISE this is perfect! do you have a profile for the numpad swap that works for normal Stream Deck?

    Just want to update here in case anyone get the same issue. Ozzy is able to solve this issue by by removing the wrongly created profile ("Profile 1 Copy") and long press COM/NAV to allow Stream Deck software to recreate the correct one ("Numpad"). No idea why Stream Deck software create that issue though.

    Would it be possible to combine a Flight Tracker action with a default Stream deck action? On my main profile page, I have a folder for Auto Pilot but also a separate button that indicates if the Auto Pilot is active. It would be great if we could combine these into a single button that accesses the AutoPilot folder but can also display the current Auto Pilot status. Keep up the great work.

    I also want that but I don't know how either ;). That would need some new support from Stream Deck itself.

    Outstanding! Transforms the Stream Deck from a simple button box to a control and information system. I can monitor aircraft status, systems and settings and make changes on the fly without reaching for a mouse or keyboard regardless of my current view. Well done on making this plugin available for MSFS2020. Would love to see warning and caution alerts incorporated if possible.

    Got most of this working and it's great. But I am having trouble probably because of the limitations of sim connects command list. I'm trying to get my longitude's engines to fire. Interestingly the mixture controls switch the Engine Run button. However something else must happen when you hit the run button. Because when I spin up the engines they won't fire. The fuel button usually auto lights up but I have been manually hitting it as it does not auto on like it normally does when you hit the run buttons. Other then this everything else that I want to control is working great.
