Generate Run Script

Generate FlightGear run script on current platform

  • Library:
  • Aerospace Blockset / Animation / Flight Simulator Interfaces

Description

The Generate Run Script block generates a customized FlightGear run script on the current platform.

To generate the run script, fill in the required information in the Parameters fields, then click Generate Script.

In the dialog box, fields marked with an asterisk (*) are evaluated as MATLAB® expressions. The other fields are treated as literal text.

Parameters

expand all

From the list, select the target platform on which you want to execute the run script. This platform can differ from the platform on which you create the run script. Select Default if you want to generate a run script to run on the platform from which you create the run script.

  • Win64

  • Linux

  • Mac

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: Architecture
Type: character vector
Values: 'Win64' | 'Linux' | 'Mac'
Default: 'Default'

From the list, select the direction of the data flow:

  • Send

    Creates the run script to set up the sending of the net_fdm control model from Simulink® to FlightGear.

  • Receive

    Creates the run script to set up the receiving of the net_ctrl control model from FlightGear to Simulink.

  • Send-Receive

    Creates the run script to set up FlightGear to receive and broadcast data to and from Simulink.

    Note

    Selecting the Send-Receive option does not mean that you receive the same data that you sent (for example, you might not see control surface position data). With this option, you see primarily user input (such as data input via joystick) and environmental data.

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: dataFlow
Type: character vector
Values: 'Receive' | 'Send-Receive'
Default: 'Send'

Specify the name of the folder containing the model geometry that you want in the FlightGear\data\Aircraft folder.

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: GeometryModelName
Type: character vector
Values:'HL20'
Default: 'HL20'

ID of supported airport, selected from a list of supported airports available in the FlightGear interface, under Location.

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: 'AirportId'
Type: character vector
Values:'KSFO'
Default: 'KSFO'

Specify the runway ID.

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: RunwayId
Type: character vector
Values:'10L'
Default: '10L'

Initial altitude of the aircraft, in feet. The block evaluates the value as a MATLAB expression.

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: InitialAltitude
Type: character vector
Values:'7224'
Default: '7224'

Initial heading of the aircraft, in degrees. The block evaluates the value as a MATLAB expression.

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: InitialHeading
Type: character vector
Values:'113'
Default: '113'

Offset distance of the aircraft from the airport, in miles. The block evaluates the value as a MATLAB expression.

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: OffsetDistance
Type: character vector
Values:'4.72'
Default: '4.72'

Offset azimuth of the aircraft, in degrees. The block evaluates the value as a MATLAB expression.

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: OffsetAzimuth
Type: character vector
Values:'0'
Default: '0'

Select this check box to direct FlightGear to automatically install required scenery while the simulator is running. Selecting this check box requires a stable Internet connection. For Windows® systems, you may encounter an error message while launching FlightGear with this option enabled. For more information, see Install Additional FlightGear Scenery.

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: InstallScenery
Type: character vector
Values:'off' | 'on'
Default: 'off'

Select this check box to disable FlightGear shader options. Your computer built-in video card, such as NVIDIA® cards, can conflict with FlightGear shaders. Consider selecting this check box if you have this conflict.

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: DisableShaders
Type: character vector
Values:'off' | 'on'
Default: 'off'

Network IP address of the machine on which the FlightGear software runs. This value is read-only.

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: OriginAddress
Type: character vector
Values:'127.0.0.1'
Default: '127.0.0.1'

Network flight dynamics model (fdm) port. For more information, see the Send net_fdm Packet to FlightGear block reference.

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: DestinationPort
Type: character vector
Values:'5502'
Default: '5502'

Network control (ctrl) port. For more information, see the Receive net_ctrl Packet from FlightGear block.

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: OriginPort
Type: character vector
Values:'5505'
Default: '5505'

Network IP address of the machine on which the MATLAB software runs.

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: LocalAddress
Type: character vector
Values:'127.0.0.1'
Default: '127.0.0.1'

Output file name. The file name is the name of the command that you use to start FlightGear with these initial parameters.

Note

The run script file name must be composed of ASCII characters.

Use these file extensions:

PlatformExtension
Windows .bat
Linux® and macOS .sh

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: OutputFileName
Type: character vector
Values:'runfg.bat'
Default: 'runfg.bat'

Specify the name of the FlightGear installation folder.

Note

FlightGear must be installed in a folder path name composed of ASCII characters.

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: FlightGearBaseDirectory
Type: character vector
Values:'C:\Program Files\FlightGear'
Default: 'C:\Program Files\FlightGear'

Click Generate Script to generate a run script for FlightGear. Do not click this button until you have entered the correct information in the dialog box parameters.
