Trouble landing at KSFO with new Queen

Recommended Posts

Using the tutorial I have tried landing at KSFO flying the beautiful new Queen and every time I end up at the end of the runway and P3D resets and I am left hanging about 50 feet in the air.

I even saved the flight at TD and flew from there but the same thing happens.

I have uploaded some pics to Photobucket. Hope it works coz I am not really sure about how to do it.

The fsuip reading at top left of screen when P3D reset was 872668 and I did hear one chime but I did not know if it was something in the cockpit trying to tell me something or if was fsuip.

I really do not think it has anything to with PMDG 747 but how would silly old me know!!!!

 

Any ideas from you clever chaps out there, please??

 

Kind regards

Richard

Do you use Orbx Vector? If so, have you tried running the Airport Elevation Correction utility in the Vector configurator tool?

Thank you for helping me. I tried your suggestion but the same thing happened. It's as if there is an invisible wall there

Thank you Steve for helping silly ole me.

It has already been placed at Area.003. I don't remember doing that so it must have been done automatically by Orbx.

Thanks anyway this is all very strange.

As Jim suggested, is crash detection turned off?

 

KSFO is known for this invisible wall.

Glad it worked.  After I reinstalled P3D, I forgot to turn crash detection off and the same thing happened to me upon landing at KSFO.  I was like you and, at first, could not figure out what happened.  What made me happy though about the fact I had crash detection turned on - it was the first time I had every flown any aircraft from LAX to SFO w/o crashing enroute!  Usually it crashed soon after takeoff with an explanation my wings had fallen off and this was with autopilot turned on!  Flying the PMDG 777 all the way to KSFO w/o crashing until landing made me feel very good!  IMHO it is not a good feature and why I always keep it off.

 

Best regards,

Jim

Sorry - it isn't clear to me if this invisible wall at San Fran is with the default Prepar3D Scenery or an add on?   Does this issue exist with the default scenery?

 

Thanks,

As for me, in turn, hate the idea of flying with crash detection OFF, ahahaha. The issue there, and in some other airports near the water, is related to the mesh. I suppose it's there when you use a third-party mesh package (not sure whether that latest-expensive package solves it or not). If you lower the mesh precision a little bit it will go away.
