Wet Runways and Poor Braking

Recommended Posts

Hi,One thing that has really bugged me about FS is that they have never modeled braking conditions (even on a basic level) This is such a major factor in the real world. I still use Topcat to calculate T/O and Landings and set vspeeds according to rwy condition. I was under the impression that this was impossible or hard coded in the sim. I've just been reading on another forum that the Project Tupolev TU-154 and Maddog 2006 have achieved this. So why have PMDG or even Level D not tried to implement this? I dont think anyone here would expect braking to be an exact real world match..this is not a complaint just curious.Thanks Rob Prest

"I dont think anyone here would expect braking to be an exact real world match"I think that is precisely the point. PMDG is not into gimicks. Unless it can be done realistically, they will not implement it. Take a look at all the discussions here in the past regarding weather radar.Andrew

But current PMDG dry braking distances are not a exact real world match... in fact most of the flight dynamics are not an exact real world match. At the end of the day this is not a full blown commercial simulator. Boeing charge huge amounts to purchase full data for just one of there aircraft for a Level D simulator. Anyway no big deal.Rob PrestJust want to add this is in no way trying to put down the excellent work these guy's have achieved within the constraints off fs2004
