I would look in the contact points section of the aircraft.cfg file. I know there was a discussion a long time back about getting FS98/FS2000 amphibians to float. Try http://www.fsgateway.com/default.asp - Tips section. Also look at the C208 Aircraft.cfg file:&l;contact_points&r;//0 Class (0=none,1=wheel,2=scrape,3=skid,4=float,5=rudder)//1 Longitudinal Position (feet)//2 Lateral Position (feet)//3 Vertical Position (feet)//4 Impact Damage Threshold (Feet Per Minute)//5 Brake Map (0=None, 1=Left, 2=Right)//6 Wheel Radius (feet)//7 Steer Angle (degrees)//8 Static Compression (feet) (0 if rigid) //9 Max/Static Compression Ratio//10 Damping Ratio / Water Rudder Effectiveness (0=Undamped, 1=Critically Damped) / 1.0 = normal//11 Extension Time (seconds)//12 Retraction Time (seconds)//13 Sound Type//14 Airspeed limit for retraction (KIAS)//15 Airspeed that gear gets damage at (KIAS)point.0=1, -1.15, -5.250, -7.800, 1600, 0, 1.40, 30.0, 0.3, 2.5, 0.80, 4.0, 4.0, 0, 0.0, 0.0point.1=1, -1.15, 5.250, -7.800, 1600, 0, 1.40, 30.0, 0.3, 2.5, 0.80, 4.0, 4.0, 1, 0.0, 0.0point.2=1, -16.40, -5.250, -7.700, 1600, 1, 1.50, 0.0, 0.4, 2.5, 0.80, 4.0, 4.0, 2, 0.0, 0.0point.3=1, -16.40, 5.250, -7.700, 1600, 2, 1.50, 0.0, 0.4, 2.5, 0.80, 4.0, 4.0, 3, 0.0, 0.0point.4=4, -4.00, -5.250, -5.600, 1600, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.85, 2.5, 0.65, 0.0, 0.0, 0, 0.0, 0.0point.5=4, -4.00, 5.250, -5.600, 1600, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.85, 2.5, 0.65, 0.0, 0.0, 1, 0.0, 0.0point.6=4, -26.35, -5.250, -4.800, 1600, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.95, 2.5, 0.65, 0.0, 0.0, 2, 0.0, 0.0point.7=4, -26.35, 5.250, -4.800, 1600, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.95, 2.5, 0.65, 0.0, 0.0, 3, 0.0, 0.0point.8=2, -12.90, -26.00, 3.00, 1800, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 5, 0.0, 0.0point.9=2, -12.90 26.00, 3.00, 1800, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 6, 0.0, 0.0point.10=2, -36.23, 0.00, 0.00, 1800, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 9, 0.0, 0.0point.11=2, -0.50, 0.00, -2.17, 1800, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 4, 0.0, 0.0point.12=2, -38.00, 0.00, 9.00, 1800, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 7, 0.0, 0.0point.13=5, -30.90, -5.250, -7.300, 1600, 0, 0.00, 50.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.00, 1.0, 1.2, 0, 0.0, 0.0point.14=5, -30.90, 5.250, -7.300, 1600, 0, 0.00, 50.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.00, 1.1, 1.5, 0, 0.0, 0.0Note point.4 thru point.7 are floats, i.e., point.4=4
