Weight & Saved Flights

Recommended Posts

When loading a saved flight, will the weight figures be those from the last flight, or any new figures that may have been entered into the aircraft.cfg?The reason I ask, is that when I complete a flight, I save it. When planning for the next flight, I'll alter the weight in the aircraft.cfg file, and load up the saved flight, assuming that the new weights will be read and updated too.However, the last two flights, I realise that I may be wrong in this case, as the weight figures don't seem to be updating and matching what is set in the aircraft.cfg file.

The station load values written to the aircraft.cfg are not used until the aircraft is reloaded. If you're already in FS when you write out the new aircraft.cfg, a subsequent load of a saved flight in the same sim session with the same airplane will not result in re-loading the aircraft.cfg file. Just switch to one of the default planes, then back and the new values should be there.Note however, that fuel loads will carry over from model to model in a session as a function of percent, not gallons or lbs.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VSantiago de Chile

No wonder my PSS 777 has been absolutely leaping off the deck then. Just looked at it's saved situation, and the planes pratically empty!
