When we do the cargo updates there will be a way to limit the payload on the flight either when booking or when starting the flight in the client.

I am getting close to getting loans and bankruptcy finished after that its
- Maintenance
- Parking
- Cargo

Loans and Bankruptcy has proven to be more complicated than I thought when I started so its taking a longer than I expected, but should be ready soon.

@cat, me too, as you can see, I also stopped to answer here...
Lets go for a beer and spam each other with stupid comments. You are very welcome. ;-)

Yes lets not use the S word here to criticize. Everyone's experience is different and valid. As long as the they are trying to be constructive all input is good.

@Stacy: What is your problem with the stupid comments? If you goal is to get others to stop making comments, job well done. I'm out.
if you don't want to hear it keep your comments that don't pertain to yourself, there.
OK lets cool it! If someone makes a comment you don't agree with its OK to say you don't agree and say why but its not acceptable to insult other members. Even if someone makes a comment you think is stupid (I don't think that by the way), they have the right to say it as long as they are not being insulting towards anybody else.

@Cat: I want to personally and publicly apologize to you for not having said more sooner. I would not be running this site if I did not value the people who use it and I do not want to see this kind of abuse.

Ok Stacy, nobody wants to insult your intelligence, and after that latest comment I understand a little bit better, what you meant. Still dont know, why you have to edit 2000 flight, probably you made a notice, how much fuel you need or somethink like that.

An unexpected tail wind is very rare, when you make your flight planing with simbrief, this tool calculates the fuel with wind. But yes, the best tool does not help, when the airplane burns more or less then calculated. PMDG does a perfect job, but you told, that some (and probaly you) are flying with standard or freeware aircrafts. I can talk only about FSX at this point. The standard B737 burns much more than expected, you probably found that out already ;-) This effect is well known and described in some simboards. In the aircraft.cfg is the line:

Code: Select all

fuel_flow_scalar=1                            //Scalar for fuel flow efficiency
PMDG has this parameter set to 1.2105
You may give it a try and "correct" this scalar from 1 to 1.2105 in your config and test on a short flight, if the burned fuel is correspondending to the calculation in simbrief (dont forget to setup the right plane and load while planning). I would love to help you with this task, but I deleted all unused planes from my sim, so I have no standard 737 anymore installed.

Wish you a relaxed christmas time.

I just started flying cargo in the PMDG Boeing 777-200F. I am not sure if any cargo changes have been made since this thread started.

I like the current cargo simulation so far! Depending on the size of the airport, I have gotten loads from 33% ZFW to 100% ZFW and some in between. I like the load variation. Always flying at 100% ZFW gets boring sometimes.

Keep up the good work Joe! :)

Actually I have not made any changes so far, so it does not depend on airport size, but that is on the list to do.
