Re: Aircraft Status.

Yeah keeping it simple is the best ....... I was just providing the data to show you I wasn't making it up. Your numbers are pretty "ballpark" to me ....
and for sure we need a check system where pilots are not using crash detect and the system lets -3000 get by.

Re: Aircraft Status.

It should be noted those are the gear contact points, the crash threshold for "scrape points" aka gear up landings are much lower Example the default FSX Airbus A321 scrape points (wing tips, fuse, tail) are only 1000 vs 1600 for hitting on the gear [contact_points] point.0=1, 43.00, 0.00, -9.70, 16...

Re: Aircraft Status.

looks about right and here's some data per FSX aircraft.cfg files The crash "threshold" on contact points for default FSX aircraft which will trigger a "crash" event if crashes are turned on: C172 -1500 fpm on the nose, 3500 on the mains [wow] point.0 = 1, 0.90, 0.00, -4.09, 1500, 0, 0.5, 22.0, 0.25...

Re: XPlane Low Fuel Use

"FUEL DUMP" then a window pops up type in lbs/kg to dump much like cargo CHANGE tab when over MTOW and yes if they are not paying attention, just like the real world they can empty their tanks and be screwed LOL :shock: It could work something like: click FUEL DUMP tab on Client - window opens ENTER...

Re: XPlane Low Fuel Use

Option 2! That was the first thing I asked the pilot in question - does your software have a working fuel dump? That would be the easiest way to do it and it would have the benefit for others who grab a nice tailwind then have to "hold at the marker" circling while they burn off fuel to get down to ...

XPlane Low Fuel Use

Question: If our XPlane pilots plan for the proper fuel burn to match real world and they land "heavy" due to XP not using the correct fuel amount, will the new FSA tool simply move fuel from "remaining" to "used" at the end of the flight? They would not be intentionally cheating and some do not hav...

Re: new client update.

Some simmers just don't know much about the real aircraft they are flying and can call ignorance as defense and have it plausible. We try to stay self policed as most of our pilots fly or have flown real aircraft at some point. I need to be more diligent and start looking up specs on any new aircraf...

Re: new client update.

Embraer is pretty tight lipped on their fuel use numbers only touting savings vs competition, but my calcs match yours in that an E195 should be in the 4200-4500 lbs per hour category, certainly not down where XPlane 11 has it .... Hopefully the pilot in question knows how to adjust XPlane 11 fuel b...

Re: new client update.

I see the one has been adjusted but not the other E195 on the aircraft in question.. XPlane 11 ... sure wish they would get their act together. I monitor most of our flights for "real world fuel burn" and have found a couple of pilots in the past "pushing the envelope" by changing their aircraft .cf...

Re: new client update.

Any new "hidden fee's" relating to logged crashes we are not seeing with the new client? Our books are now off by $249,100 compared to FSA and we cannot find the discrepancy. We did have a new pilot log an out of fuel/crash flight that lost 8,100 after multiplier.... but it sure seems like our accou...

Re: Aircraft Status.

Would flight time come into "wear and tear" play as well? ATM if a pilot takes really good care of their airplane, they can get 4+ flights out of it without any status drop. I do like the fact -399 to 0 would now be treated the same: "normal landing window" and it would get pilots off the fixation o...

Re: Aircraft Status.

Question: did you already implement the status hit for aircraft parked more than 30 days or are we seeing a simple "adjustment" to the new formula? Seeing guys make really good landings and get hit with .3% reductions in status. Just curious, thanks again for all your hard work! Regards, Sam

Oh yes, if you give us -399 and under as normal, I don't care what you do above it! :D

Re: Aircraft Status.

With Crash Detection "on" - bumping into a jetway or ground vehicle triggering "crash" in the simulator, that may get complicated, although if the damage were slight, passengers would still be misplaced and cargo shipments disrupted and a financial penalty on the airline would be in order. But to sl...
