Aircraft passing through each other

Recommended Posts

This sounds a bit weird, but I've had to set an option in P3D to make it so that other aircraft can pass through each other as they're taxing. That's because they never stop for me - they go on to crash into me if I don't turn this option the way it is. I've had to make it so they can simply pass through me w without causing damage.

this causes another problem in that when I get pushed back from a gate, sometimes another aircraft is created and flashed up in front of me as though I wasn't there in the first place!

H how do I get P3D to recognise that I'm there, but stop other aircraft from creating into me - assuming using the ATC (I use the builtin ATC, and I know the other aircraft never get told to not crash into me) ?

Thanks, Gaz

Just to confirm, you are using the default ATC? the default ATC does detect you and AI traffic would stop in front of you on the taxiways, etc., but be aware that it is not perfect as sometimes crashes happen so it is recommended to remove collision detection anyway.

Are you asking permission to the default ATC before pushing back, etc.? it is also recommended to avoid 100% AI traffic load as the default ATC is unable to handle such quantities, it works better at 30% - 45% but many users run it at 70% accepting its limitations.

Most of us run without aircraft crash detection because even if the game is properly keeping planes from ramming you, it doesn't control the ground vehicles, and if you're in their way, even if you're not moving or have the right of way, they will run into you and trigger a crash because despite not being controlled like airplanes, they're considered airplanes by the sim
