Building Crash when in spot view?!

Recommended Posts

This has been happening for a long time, and I've had to uncheck the detect crash setting. Has anyone experienced this? The aircraft (any aircraft) doesn't even have to be moving and if I pan around in spot view I get a building crash. Also, does anyone know how to disable the failures? Each time I disable the electrical failure that mysteriously popped up one day (I've never intentionally set failures on my own) it always comes back...no matter how many times I disable it.Thanks in advance.Demetrious

Probably the simplest thing to try first is to back up your FS2002.cfg file from the FS2002 root folder. Once backed up, delete this file and restart FS2K2. A new .cfg file will be created with default settings. See if the problem has gone away, and if it has, then reset your prefered settings. Hope this helps.

I'd suggest your parking breaks and not crash into buildings. For some reason aircraft to not respond well to that... ;-)))

If you are talking about being in spot view and when you pan around the aircraft, FS2002 detects a crash.... yes, I believe everyone will experience that even though it seems to happen only at certain airports.I have been able to avoid this in most cases by first pushing my hat in the up position a little and rising above the aircraft, and therefore above the surrounding scenery, and then panning. It seems like it is the exterior eyepoint that crashes into other objects as you pan around.Also you can try zooming the view closer to the plane by using the plus(+) key and then panning.Experiment, it can be beat.

Thanks for the info, guys. Deleting the .cfg file should also cure the inexplicable electric failures, too.Thanks again.Demetrious
