I can't see a DME indicator in the 3D cokpit in the default C172.

Am I missing something?


Also I tried editing the cockpit with Plane Maker.

The thing is, it appears empty (empty panel for the 2D, and just the GPS screens turned off for the 3D).

So I tried the VOR navigation tutorial, the view is blocked on the 2D panel....empty. The 3D cockpit isn't empty though.

Don't know if I had this problem before opening plane maker. I don't know how to use this software but I'm positive I never deleted anything, I just "saved as" the default C172 file.

In a flight, I tried to open the 2D cockpit to see if I had the same problem (alt w) and it doesn't show up at all, it seems it loads the default Shift 7 view.

Help would be much apreciated

X-Plane 11 does not include 2d panels for any of the default aircraft.

Oh my bad.

Thanks for the reply.

The (empty) 2D cokpit was enabeld on my sim for the tutorials for some reason, i just had to click on the view menu and switch to 3D.

Any tips on how I can add a DME indicator in the 3D cockpit though?
