Crash detection on or off?

Recommended Posts

Guest BWBriscoe

Hi,As a PMDG 744 FS9 user, I was wondering whether or not other people use FS crash detection?I was flying the Queen into KSFO the other night, and on the flare I had reduced my descent to the correct vertical speed, however when I touched down, the sim just stopped (detected the crash) and reset to the beginning of my 10 hour flight from EGLL!!So I just wondered what do other people do?Cheers,Ben

I always have it turned off, sometimes there's a scenery conflict or something else happens where there wouldnt or shouldnt have been a crash but it registered as one in the simulator, I'm also confident enough in my pilot skills that I really dont need FS to tell me that I crashed because well, I never crash ;). But sometimes the sim will register one for something beyond your controll *bad BGL file or bad connection to Squawkbox and AC jumping around*

I always have it turned off for 2 reasons: stupid AI driving on the ground and unrealistic pushback risks of hitting something.

I keep mine switched off too for the following reason. I like to fly online with Vatsim. and at the very moment I go online I could inadvertantly be on the same parking spot as someone else, and do not want to register a crash and start my planning all over again, and hopefully if I park on someone else when i go online they have theirs switched off too so I do not spoil what they are doing.regardsJohn Calleja (baw352)

Mine's off here, too. Reason is because it is unrealistic, unless you hit something.Best regards,Robin.

Mine is off too, I find it just not playable with it on because as said above, crash where there shouldnt be a crash.Gerry

OFF. :-)Be your own 'crash detection'. If you really foul it up you tend to know whether it would be survivable or not!I've only made one landing in the past 3 or so years that would have been a hull loss anyway, it was just after I got my new PC and realised it would handle any amount of FS9 weather weather I chucked at it. I set up the evening from #### going into EGLL and got some really bad windshear at about 200 feet. I had no chance, I went screaming into the deck at about 1,700 fpm, engines firewalled and knuckles white!!!Maybe I should have diverted...

Off here as well, unless I want to fly a float plane, then I need it on because it seems to screw up loading onto the water. I've never had a crash reset from landing though, so unless it's scenery then you might be landing too hard. Either way, off is best for all the miscellaneous problems having it on causes.
