Flight Marked As Cheated

Post by GPT-101 » Mon May 05, 2008 12:26 am

I just flew from OMDB to RJAA in a Boeing 747-400, and after I landed and ended the flight, I checked the website, and the flight was marked as 'possibly cheated'. After looking for possible reasons, I noticed that the fuel purchased was v$0, when in fact, I loaded 292,000 lbs of fuel to the aircraft via the "Standard" method in the client prior to taking off. I've included a copy of the flight log, and would appreciate it if an admin could look into it for me. I've had several issues with loading fuel in the client(ie. not allowing the total allowable amount of fuel to be loaded and when using the 'Compare' method of fueling, being quite overcharged for the fuel that was needed).

Which 744 model are you using for your flights.

the default 747-400 that comes with FS2004 and FSX. I believe I've narrowed it down to differences in measurements. ie: sim is set to lbs, and client is kg. since I've switched my sim to kg, my fuel has been right on the money. as for the reason that the client recorded loading 0% fuel, I don't understand.

Ok, if I read you correctly, the flight in question you used lb's in the client instead of kg's and thats when the error happened. But since then you have been using kg's and its been working ok. Since DaKurt is hard at work on the client for the new site I don't think he will have to fix the existing client. If you have time could you try this out on the new site, http://www.fsairlines.net and see if you get the same results.

I also switched the units of measure within FS2004 from US(lbs) to metric(kg). I just need to know if I flew that flight for nothing, or if the airline gets to keep what we made. I'm sure I refueled the aircraft before takeoff, within the client, and would hate to loose money because the client failed to pick it up.
