Main gear touchdown and contact points

Recommended Posts

I took the liberty to slightly modify the main gear contact points to get a better animation at touchdown.I find the result quite pleasant and it gives a sort of compressed tires effect although at heavy weight it might look eccesive.I suggest to use this configuration for max weights 115000lbs MTOW, 103000lbs MLDW (rather then the HGW 128/107).I havent had any bouncing or other problem so far but I'm looking forward for eventual feedback.I find the gear compression at spoilers extention a very nice effect but maybe it would be a nice to decrease it slightly to get the best animation effect.I don't know exactly what parameter is causing that compression so I didnt try to edit it. I would be glad to find out more details.Best RegardsMicheleHere's my Contact points:[contact_points]static_pitch = -0.4static_cg_height = 7.92max_number_of_points = 8point.0 = 1.000, 37.94, 0.0000, -7.8000, 900.00, 0.000, 1.000, 78.000, 0.3047, 1.900, 0.867, 4.600, 4.5, 0, 285, 310point.1 = 1.000, -1.81, -9.8248, -9.3092, 1500.00, 1.000, 3.333, 0.000, 1.9410, 1.000, 0.879, 5.500, 5.9, 2, 285, 310point.2 = 1.000, -1.81, 9.8248, -9.3092, 1500.00, 2.000, 3.333, 0.000, 1.9410, 1.000, 0.879, 5.500, 5.9, 3, 285, 310
