Hi, I noticed the nose wheel on all the A3XX variation sinks into the runway/taxiway to almost half its size. specially when throttle or reverse thrust and braking are applied.Any help pls.Kind RegardsMustafa

To adjust the nosewheel you need to go to the aircraft.cfg and to the contact_points section. The first line of that starts point.0=1 and this is the nosewheel line. The third number along (circled in red in the image below) controls how far into the ground or above the ground the nosewheel sits. In the example below the nosewheel was -11.3 but I adjusted it to -11.5 which brought the nosewheel up a bit. If I had wanted to take it down a bit I would have gone to for example -11.1. It's a case of trial and error here to see what works best for you. Your numbers might be different but the principle is the same.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/168691.jpgThe brakes on the PSS Airbus are very fierce but as yet I haven't found a good way to soften them without causing other problems.

Make sure after you change the figures that you re-load the aircraft to see the effect as the changes are not applied dynamically. On braking the nosewheel will still drop as the braking action is too fierce. It is mainly controlled in the model I believe rather than the air file or cfg so it can't be re-coded. The problem can be reduced by stiffening the nosegear but this causes steering issues. I will continue to work on it.Rob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training Captain, British Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk
