Chaseplane Motion Effects for Jetliners

Recommended Posts

I am just curious if anyone has a good mix of settings for the motion effects for Chaseplane; in particular with an A320 or 737.  I've messed around with them a ton but can't find the right mix and wanted to know if anyone else out there has found a mix that they like.  I also realize it is personal preference but would love a good starting point and go from there.  THanks!

well make sure you have wind on the aircraft turned up to the 50% of the slider mark. Then you will get whatever wind is out there affecting your aircraft/camera.

What about for the others (ground, anticipation, breathing, F. Horizon, etc)?  I am in a flight right now in FSL319 at FL380 and at 50% wind i'm shaking like crazy... is that what you typically see? FL380 wind is 235/47 headwind

having wind at 50 % up on the slider just lets it show the wind normally the wind does not go over 20%....hang on i will go look in sim..

OK, I have Environment ground set to 3.00 and wind set to 3.00, human default I think 1/1/10, aircraft accels 3.75/1/.68/0

I'll give this a look.... Do you ever have these settings with a "smooth" view?  With these I am shaking still, but It might be because of the actual wind turbulence I guess?

I like the wind slider up, if you have strong winds just move the slider to your personal taste. I like 3 but see what you like the feel of. "smooth view" not sure what that is?

Right now with the settings you gave, my VC is shaking continuously.  Where as is if I had it set to 0, there would be no shaking or vibrating.  I think what I was looking for would be wind causing shaking when gusty or choppy, and in smooth flight, having very little shaking or none at all.  Does that make sense?  Sorry if that is hard to follow..

No that's easy to follow, I would suggest you set winds to 1.5-2.00, the plane is moving around all the time IRL so I like some movement but it's personally taste to how much.

AS will give you the shaking and vibrating on top off the CP wind movement. I set up winds in AS as per FSL instructions.

I've just seen why 3 will be to high i go into the tuning options and turned the movement if you don't wish to do that then 1.5-2 max should be fine.

I did your settings and did 2 on the wind just in time for my approach into KRSW.  I liked it.  Thanks!

I wish Chaseplane would link up to Active Sky the way EZDOK v3 apparently does to give you realistic turbulence effects. I've tried playing with the 'wind' setting, but had the same problem the OP has. It's either always on or always off. I wish it would communicate with AS and shake the camera around only when in turbulent or choppy conditions.

Perhaps you should post your request on the ChasePlane forum, Kevin the developer is pretty good about responding.

I used to be an ezdok guy right when I got back into simming.  Then I made the switch to CP and really like it.  However, this ezdok feature interests me.  Without opening a can of worms, what are some pros and cons of this new ezdok3 compared to chaseplane?

It's pretty awesome to see turbulence in EZdok v3.  It was good in V2, even better now.  It also works with FSGRW, but they don't mention that in their marketing.

Want realistic motion effects look at EZdok 3

Motion effects and turbulence effects are one of the things I cannot get right with Chaseplane - as much as I love the other camera features and UI.  It never seems realistic.  For this reason I have decided to get EZDOK3.  I was really impressed with what is possible in this regard.

I had a good look at my setting for FSL/NG and here is how I set them up.

For Views from the Captain's seat. When you go into the effects, setting for the left four setting I use (left to right) 3 /2.5 /1 /0.5, then on the right, the ground is set to 1.5 and wind 2.0. Within the ground "tune" options I set all 3 to 1.5. I use the default setting in the wind tune options and all other settings to default like breathing etc. In the flight, I did last night in cruise with a 50kt wind the cockpit moves around nicely.

I have MCP/radio views with no effects at all.

The thing is that the strength of wind doesn't determine how much turbulence you get. You can have a 150-knot tailwind and be smooth as butter or be getting beat up in light winds. That's why it should talk to ActiveSky. I'll post on their forums later if I have time.

Ben,

I think that's a very good/valid point.

Once I see it working with FSL and a few videos am sure I will give v3 a try. I want the best and personly don't care if that CP or EZDOZ, I loved v1 back in the day. CP is so user-friendly. Looking forward to seeing more of v3 in action.

Competition is so good for us. First, we had EZDOC v1, then CP and EZDOC said it was a rip off of there v1, now we have EZDOC v3 with a UI looking just like CP, lol.

Did you guys read the manual?

The wind option is meant to be 0 inside the cockpit, it's meant to simulate wind in open cockpit aircraft, you aren't going to be feeling any wind inside a closed cockpit.

The first 3 are the ones that make the most difference, as they affect how the plane reacts to G-Forces from turbulence, wind, etc.

Setting the first three sliders to 3.0 gives me the effect I like, turbulence is a lot more noticeable, and it's not too sensitive to manual inputs.I found the defaults of 1.0 way too weak, but again this varies with person.
