737NGX and ASN turbulence effects - recommendations needed

Recommended Posts

Agreed.  Great implementation of turbulence in ASN with no S-turns.

 

Even if I usually appreciate Kyle's massages, in this case I tend partly to disagree ("no S-turns" is okay for me).

 

Due to the fact that I bought the T7 I decided to upgrade my AS2012 to Active Sky NEXT in order to enjoy the weather radar function. However, since I'm using ASN I'm experiencing quite often landing situations with my PMDG 737NGX, neither me nor the autopilot are able to cope with. It's always the same: At short final just a second or two before the upcoming touch-down the aircraft rolls immediately clockwise in a quite unrealistic way. The necessary moment of inertia shouldn't allow such a move - else I never would fly again in reality. Even if I'm alerted there is in most cases no time or even the slightest chance to react (autolanding does show the same effects and the a/p is overstrained, too).

  • I have no turbulence effects turned on in FSX,
  • FSUIPC is set to smoothen turbulences,
  • ASN has the same settings as I used in AS2012 (10% for max wind shear and wake turbulence strenght), and
  • there are no aircraft that could cause wake effects in front of me and if so I would know how to deal with the flight path.

Any advice or recommended settings that would allow effects reflecting a bit better the reality would be appreciated.

 

BTW, as far as I understand some contributions in the AS forum, there are some other aircraft (e.g. the buses of Aerosoft) having problems as well, others are unaffected.

Your preference... mine is to totally disable any and all turbulence.  Even a small amount injected by ASN, approved by some, is very unrealistic for me.  I just learned last week or two that ASN overrides FSX WX and FSUIPC weather smoothing has no effect.  I tested that and now agree.

Thanks Dan, this makes sense. Meanwhile (today) I tested new settings while flying with some buddies in Japan where the have airports on to of hills (it's really like a carrier landing) and with each setting reduced to 5% for gusts and wake turbulence it was a rather smooth ride even if the weather was quite gusty. Other planes have had problems, too. I'm often flying to remote fields with Aerosoft's DHC6-300 and got similar effects before. Today it felt much better as well. It seems that my present approach is somehow asymptotic to your present policy (default, 20%, 10%, 5%...and later probably 0%).  B)

 

By the way, so far I cannot remember problems with PMDG's B772.

 

EDIT: Before I forget, just today a friend of mine moaned about the behaviour of his A319 (Aerosoft) while using ASN. He recently changed to P3D.

That's probably because in 777 SP1 PMDG made changes to filter out the worst effects of FSX turbulence to be more realistic. Hopefully that modelling can be added to the NGX in SP2.

 

For ASN I use 25% for both types of turbulence and I find that more than enough. 100% (which you'd think would be meant to represent full realism) is far too much, especially with the strange way FSX does turbulence.

I have wake turbulence set a 0. Not very realistic but then I don't think ASN's depiction of wake turbulence is very realistic. Any setting above 0 and I am in the ground before I can say "S--t".

thats it disable wake turb in the ASN settings to solve this problem

Thanks to all for your opinions. Michael, specifically this one meets exactly my experience!

I don't think that I should mark the question to be solved. It's obviously rather a method to avoid trouble. :wacko:

Kevin,let's hope together. I'm just afraid that we all are expecting rather a new product even if it's already a great one.

I agree with you, mine is set to 0 but you reminded me of my first encounter with wake turbulence. I was working on my MEL in a Seneca with hood on shooting approaches at KOMA Epply Field Omaha, instructor in right seat, ex-wife in row behind knitting (honest). I was number two behind a Lockheed turboprop (Electra maybe) when all of a sudden and very aggressively I rolled 60 degrees and full yoke deflection managed to stop it there but not correct.  That was the best reason for a go around that I've experienced.  That wife didn't return until after I finished the training.

Unfortunately all expectations that one of both interfacing companies would solve the overwhelming wake effect for the NGX failed. I have the latest Beta of ASN installed and forget to check the turbulence settings after the update (of course, they where set to default) and made a flight today with my brand new WX radar equipped NGX. The result had been a crash with likely no survivors (a A320 landed about 4 mins in front of me).

 

What do we have now, a weather program requiring aircraft specific settings? A ridiculous idea I suppose. It seems to be something that should be resolved between HiFi and PMDG. At the moment the bird's behaviour is not controllable as long as the related effects are set within ASN to anything > 0.

 

EDIT: If the fault is clearly on ASN's side I surely would expect a little bit of pressure on them from PMDG, probably together with Aerosoft (their Bus seems to have similar problems).

I don't experience this at all.  Have you opened at ticket at hifisim.com?  Nothing will be done unless you submit a ticket.

Devin,

 

I'm wondering a bit about your statement and if you would read some comments here it seems that I'm not the only one being afflicted with this behaviour. However, there are several entries in HiFi's support forum and you would find me amongst them. By the way, when flying online with a couple of friends I can hear (and sometimes watch) others sharing this experience, too.

 

As I have to leave now, I'm going to submit a ticket later today (I'm already registered)

Axel

It's best to leave a send in a ticket.  That's how Damien and Kostas track bugs and trends.

 

Even though you posted in the Hifi forum, topics are easily lost, especially now with FSX,  FSX-SE, and P3d (the two latter being actively developed and needing program re-writes/updating).  Like PMDG, the forum tends to get busy and cluttered, hence why there is a ticket system for both.  Easier to manage and track.  It's not to make it harder for you guys, really!!  :D

I know this was a problem in AS2012 with wake turb enabled, but didn't know it to be an issue with ASN.

 

Never experienced it myself in countless high density online hours in London with ASN.

Interesting, it seems to be time to find out specific differences in the setup or environment.

 

In order to start with something:

I'm flying online just by using a FsHost Client-Server configuration and none of the usual online networks like VATSIM or IVAO. I'm using UT with 100% traffic which is still active when flying with my friends (we're not too many). However I'll make some tests now with locally induced traffic only and I'll look far a busy airport, too (I think London Heathrow is okay). Let's see what happens.

So Gents may I ask for your opinions on obtaining best turbulence effects? I use ASN and wonder if I should switch off the turbulence in FSX and simply adjust ASN to my preference. Or should I leave FSX enabled?

 

In addition I also run EZDOC for flightdeck camera views and ground/air turbulence shake.

 

What should I do with all three and how do they interact?

 

Thank you!
