Hi Hardy,

In the upper left-hand corner of some of your screenshots, there's the word "Motion."  What does this refer to?

Hi Will,

MOTION means: Motion is frozen, systems are running.

PAUSED means: Nothing's running.

Hi H,

Symantics again, I'm afraid.

Would it be better to change MOTION to FROZEN so that the implication is of no motion?
Cheers, Richard

What is frozen when FROZEN is displayed?

Fuel flow or motion?

There will be a third indication:

PAUSED
MOTION
FUEL*

I think, within 3 seconds it will be clear to the user what it means, as you see the motion has stopped. You can't see the actual motion on the photo, of course.

The indication is a non-normal indication. It shows what's currently not normal.


Cheers,

* Not frozen in terms of low temperature, but in terms of "tank quantity remains constant even though fuel flows".

Richard, I had the same thought you did; when I saw the word "motion," I assumed it meant motion was ON, or activated... I was dreaming that PSX was sending signals to hydraulic actuators for the motion of a platform somehow.  A little early in the development for that though, prolly.

The fact it is orange to me indicated it was in 'non-normal' state....

PSX does it all the time. It's up to the addons if they read PSX's signals or not.
