Problem with ground handling with v4.1

Recommended Posts

Something changed in the ground handling in the new update. I cannot get tri gear nose wheel to steer and it just slides. It will turn just a bit but not enough. All planes do this except the PMDG 747 as that has it's own system for ground handling. Tail draggers turn great but not nose gear equipped planes.

Yep same here. I was using PMDG's 747. Before 4.1 was working perfectly. Now I can't get the steering with the rudders. You say the 747 has it's own ground handling?

Yes the 747 is the only plane that will turn in taxi for me.

Will other nose gear equipped planes turn easily in taxi for you?

Haven't tried anything else. I'll try another bird and report back.

Just tried the CRJ 900 from Aerosoft. Same problem with rudder steering. 4.1 screwed something up.

I hope they can put out a hotfix for this. Now I have to start each plane on the runway because I cannot taxi them anymore.

Take the plane up and you'll see the rudder barely works. Tried recalibrating but no help.

My rudder and nose wheel turn ok but nose wheel will not track on the ground and just skids.

Yes they turn. You can see that from the outside view. Looks ok. But then you can see it's essentially skidding on the ground and not actually turning the aircraft. It's like it's skidding on ice.

Exactly,,but why are we the only ones with this problem?

Tried Virtualcol's CRJ same issue.

 

Maybe we aren't. It's early in the game. Reports are just coming in. I also have an error message for F1's GTN 750. Will need to update that.

I was busy with work this evening and did not yet install V4.1.  was just starting to set it up and stopped. I am not going any further until this issue is resolved with a fix. 4.0 is just fine for me for now. I see nothing compelling at this point. Most disappointed! Oh well, that means that everything that worked great yesterday still works today! :cool:

Thanks for the heads up.

Kind regards,

Have you tried with default aircraft? Also are you using a rudder steering or are you using the Axis Steering Tiller on the axis assignments?

I used rudder on every plane including all PMDGs 777, 747, 737 and up to the install of 4.1 worked without a single problem. Now nothing but a problem.

Tried the default f22 and it shows up there but not as bad. Carenado's C90GTX shows up there.

There are complaints here but I am wondering the installation method? The aircraft being used? Have you reinstalled the aircraft affected? Did you use FSUIPC? Do you use regular P3D assignments?

 

I.E The Aerosoft CRJ uses an animation for the steering that is independent from the actual movement via XML. Thus why you might get a turning wheel and not an actual movement in that direction.

 

Please share more details.

 

Has anyone posted this on the Prepar3D Forums? That's the first place I would report it.

Don't use FSUIPC for my controls. All through P3D assignments. Obviously I would prefer a solution rather than reinstalling a whole bunch of aircrafts. 

 

I deinstalled the 4.0 Client and installed the new client.

I am curious to see if the other users reporting the issue did the same method.
