Bird Strike

Recommended Posts

Today was my second bird strike in 30 or so flights which caused dual engine failure on takeoff....annoying to say the least after setting up cockpit for 30 min. Any way to turn this off?

Go to your X-Plane Output/preferences folder, load the X-Plane.prf file into Notepad, and look for this line:

 

renopt_deer_birds 1

 

Change the number on the end from 1 to 0 and that will stop random bird strikes.

 

Note: this is different from the bird strikes you can set up on the Failure menu. It's supposed to be just a visual effect, not damaging. It's a known bug that should be fixed before release. Meanwhile, just edit the file.
