Xp11 crash detection for autogen objects?

Recommended Posts

Is there not a way to detect a crash/collision if a plane strikes a tree or building or other object on the ground?

 

It seems only direct impact with the ground causes damage/crashes.

 

Maybe i'm missing a setting somewhere?

 

Thanks in advance

There is no collision detection for objects like trees and buildings in X-Plane except in a few special cases. I've triggered a crash by touching a building when zooming down an urban center at low level when the building has a helipad on top. Otherwise crash detection isn't supported, presumably to keep the load off the CPU.

 

I miss it sometimes when landing at small bush plane airstrips with tree obstacles, but with a high world objects setting it would probably kill the frame rate if every tree had collision detection. It's possible to design custom scenery with hard objects in WED if it's important enough, as for bush airstrips or practicing helicopter landings in confined spaces. Otherwise X-Plane is a collision-free zone except for terrain.
