Landing gear collapse tolerance

Recommended Posts

How do I increase the tolerance on an aircraft's landing gear to avoid collapse on gravel taxiways/runways?I have an ATR42-500 (dunno whose aircraft at the moment) sitting at CYCB, but can't do anything because the nose gear keeps collapsing shortly after I start moving... I found the option in aircraft.cfg for impact damage threshold, but even increasing it to an unrealistically high 13,574, it still collapses....How can I fix this?

That infomation is contained in the "Contact" section in the aircraft.cfg file. Download the Aircraft SDK from microsoft, and you'll find it... I'm not sitting in front of my FS computer, so I can't tell you the exact number to tweak...

Well, the only option in the "Contact_point" section that looks to me like it relates to what I need is the impact damage threshold setting.As of right now, my ATR42-500 can sustain a landing at 113,357 feet per minute, but still can't taxi on gravel.....
