Group 1 and 3 are the hub and needle on the left gauge 2 and 4 are for the gauge on the right

The turn and bank indicator, above and to the right of the altimeter, should be group 45 according to Kev's code, and the heading indicator on the right of the panel should be group 42. I'm not seeing where groups 2 and 4 are in your picture.

I'm not sure what's going on but those numbers don't seem to be correct. It looks like Kev crossed up a couple of the animations. If I use 2 & 3 for the animation, the needles on both the altimeter and the gauge on the right (variometer?) move, but their hubs remain stationary.

EDIT: Just saw your post and those numbers make sense. Thanks for checking them out.

Not really what I was after. Typical aircraft altimeters use at least two indicators, one showing 1000s in one revolution, the second showing 10,000s per revolution. There is even a third bug that indicates 100,000s per revolution.

Like this:


Exactly. Here is a good picture of one from a C182 if it is helpful.

I think I'm stuck with leaving the VC gauges rather cartoonish. I'll just clean up Kev's code and try to make it sensible, but the VC gauges are really for ambiance and don't provide any information that isn't more readily available in the Surface MFD.
