Brake sharpness

Recommended Posts

Is there any tweak that may reduce the sharpness of braking in FSX (using yoke button)?

 

The default brakes don't seem very realistic - particularly when taxiing.

 

Thanks.

In your aircraft.cfg there is a setting for your brakes.

 

[brakes]
parking_brake = 1         //Parking brake available
toe_brakes_scale =0.885  //Brake scalar  This is what to adjust either a smaller number or larger
auto_brakes = 4
hydraulic_system_scalar = 1  //On brakes dependant on the hydraulic system, ratio hyd system to max brake hyd pressure

Hi charliearon,

 

Does changing the toe_brakes_scale =0.885 also after breaking by a yoke button if you don"t have toe brakes?

Just to be sure we are in the same cockpit, so to speak!  You have a button on your Yoke Assy. that you programmed for Brakes?  My trigger on my Joystick is programmed for brakes.  When I squeeze the trigger it applies my toe brakes just like if I had rudder pedals.

 

That setting in the aircraft.cfg is for giving more or less stopping power for your brakes.  It's just referred to as toe_ brakes.

Thanks for your quick response!  I thought if one had rudder pedals one could adjust the pressure applied to the breaks.  I don't have rudder pedals but you answered my question.  I will check out the aircraft.cfg file of my plane in question.

If you have rudder pedals that also feature toe brakes then you are assigning and AXIS to the brakes in addition to the rudder AXIS.. That's handled completely different by the sim than assigning a BUTTON to the brakes.
