The script was completely redone. The latest version is now 1.38.
- Removed images that weren't used.
- Cropped images to a minimum (to save GPU memory).
- Animations added to various items (with the animation API).
- Gyro spin up will also influence the heading rotation. Not sure if this has the desired effect.
- Glide slope markers park all the way up when there's no glide slope signal (maybe this was already there).
- Flags now rotate instead of disappearing.
- Full support for FS2020.

There might be some bugs here and there, please let me know.

Small copy / paste error in the X-Plane script, so now it's at version 1.39 :)

The compass now slowly spins to the current heading when the gyro spins up. I'm not sure if this is real world behavior. It can also be that it starts spinning to the correct position when the gyro is completely up to speed?
We would probably need to find a pilot who has this thing in real life, and then even he or she has to first check it :)

Here's how it goes with X-Plane using the HSI
LEFT = our HSI in the PA28 AutoPNL set / RIGHT = HSI 1.39 updated by Ralph

NAV Mode

GPS Mode (not sure if we should get the GS markers in this case, so I have to update if not ...)

And now with MSFS :

NAV Mode

GPS Mode

@Ralph Nice, the instruments look Soooooo much better without the 'light bloom'

I don't think I've made any visual changes :) Not intentionally...
It no longer has the option to choose NAV 2 as the solid source, but I don't think that's necessary.

@Ralph
Could I ask you for one more little update? Would please correct the placement of the heading indicator? Now half of it, it is hidden. Thanks.
