Recommended Posts

hello all steven here, I know there have been posts on this before as i have searched this forum but none of it has helped me, i got my Wilco Fleet A380 into FSX (she's beautiful) but it jumps everywere. I heard i need to adjust the touching points or somthing like that but i don't know were to start:point.0= 1, 62.0, 0.00, -35.40, 3200.0, 0, 1.96, 60.0, 0.30, 2.5, 0.4, 7.00, 8.00, 0, 210.0, 250.0 //contact_cgearpoint.1= 1, -24.30, -24.56, -36.80, 3200.0, 1, 1.94, 5.0, 1.00, 1.5, 0.8, 7.70, 7.40, 2, 210.0, 250.0 //contact_lgear01point.2= 1, -58.30, -15.56, -36.80, 3200.0, 1, 1.94, 20.0, 1.00, 1.5, 0.8, 8.00, 8.00, 2, 210.0, 250.0 //contact_lgear0215point.3= 1, -24.30, 24.56, -36.80, 3200.0, 2, 1.94, 8.0, 1.00, 1.5, 0.8, 7.40, 7.80, 2, 210.0, 250.0 //contact_rgear01point.4= 1, -58.30, 15.56, -36.80, 3200.0, 2, 1.94, 20.0, 1.00, 1.5, 0.8, 7.60, 7.50, 2, 210.0, 250.0 //contact_rgear02point.5= 1, -33.30, 0.00, -36.80, 3200.0, 0, 1.94, 20.0, 1.00, 1.5, 0.8, 7.60, 7.50, 2, 210.0, 250.0 //contact_midgearpoint.6= 2, -128.0, -5.59, 8.67, 3200.0, 0, 2.27, 0.0, 0.82, 2.5, 0.8, 0.0, 0.0, 4, 150.0, 200.0 //contact_scrape_tailpoint.7= 2, -66.2, -119.9, 3.27, 3200.0, 0, 4.89, 0.0, 0.82, 2.5, 0.8, 0.0, 0.0, 5, 150.0, 200.0 //contact_scrape_leftwingpoint.8= 2, -66.2, 118.0, 3.27, 3200.0, 0, 4.82, 0.0, 0.82, 2.5, 0.8, 0.0, 0.0, 6, 150.0, 200.0 //contact_scrape_rightwingstatic_pitch = 0.7static_cg_height = 15.0 gear_system_type=1 //Hydraulicso what do i edit to stop it bouncing and what do i replace it with,thanksSteven

You could try re-installing this aircraft.Do you load an FSX default aircraft, in 2D view, first?I know I have seen posts about this so I will keep my eyes open.

Parked at the gate with the engines off or what?I haven't noticed any problems with it really except the spoilers deployed message is lit when they aren't.

Hai quayleIf you mean bouncing on landing then it is simple physics that you are landing hard. You are landing with a high descent rate. Greater the descent rate the greater would be the impact and if it exceeds the weight of the aircraft would get back on air again and the same would continue until impact on the ground is less than that of its weight.RegardsShri

And if you mean bouncing at the gate... I had that with several aircraft but it seems to have disappeared now that I have a better computer. Someone suggested that it was caused by the mesh being updated gradually.Daniel

One quick and dirty trick to try is to reduce your terrain mesh slider all the way to the bottom. If your aircraft still bounces, then there's a contact point problem. If not, then it's possibly an issue with the contact points versus the terrain mesh. That can be aggravated by a slower computer rig.Jeff ShylukAssistant Managing EditorSenior Staff ReviewerAVSIM
