Will these be modeled?

GND TESTS switch
Flight Deck Access Lights switch
FLT CONTROL SHUTOFF switches
GEN FIELD MAN RESET switches
SPLIT SYSTEM BREAKER
Squib Test switches
EEC MAINT switches
DEFUEL panel
Observer Audio System switch

All are currently graphically modelled. i.e. the switches appear on the panels. However, the depth of influence of each switch will have to be decided.

e.g. the Ground Test Switch. The CMC is not being modelled (at least, no further than PS1), so you would think that the (CMC) Ground Test Switch would have no influence. However:
1) there is an EICAS message associated with this switch,
2) the switch affects Lower EICAS Status page APU displays and
3) the standard overhead Fire Test commands the engine bleeds to close (only with the GND TEST switch ON)

The effect of the Flight Deck Access Lights switch is neglible to the lighting of the cockpit (the cockpit door would have to be open for light to get into the cockpit), so probably won't be modelled.

What does "graphically" mean? Mechanics?

Some of the mentioned components are currently electrically modelled as well:
- Indicator lights of those switches are wired to specific busses and MD&T dim electronics and test relays (was very difficult to program)
- Squib light test is partially done (but there's no fire detection circuit yet)
- Generator field reset logics (was damn hard to network these)
- Manual SSB logic (was very complex to model also)

I consider the entire electrical system completed except for the load shedding model on the utility and galley busses.

But it's still a long way to go ...
