Problem with AI Traffic--help needed.

Recommended Posts

I am making AI Traffic for the ALPHA sim carrier ENTERPRISE.I have these two problems:1. Some planes land as if they were doing touch and gos and ATC control asks them to contact ground while these have left the deck and continue flying straigh ahead.2. One S-3 Viking lands on the angled deck, flies 400 feet on ahead and turns around taxiing on air and parks starboard side to its assigned spot.I include a picture of my afcad---a,b, c, and d and the line in red show the S-3s course.The red dots are hold short nodes.The flight plans are here:AC#6,F4,20%,2Hr,VFR,00:15:00,00:30:00,020,R,0006,CVN2,01:15:00,01:30:00,020,R,0006,CVN2AC#7,F4B,20%,2Hr,VFR,00:00:00,00:30:00,020,R,0006,CVN2,01:15:00,01:30:00,020,R,0006,CVN2AC#3,VA15,20%,1Hr,VFR,01:24:00,TNG00:35:59,015,R,0123,CVN2,00:39:58,TNG00:55:56,150,R,0123,CVN2AC#9,VA15,40%,2Hr,VFR,00:45:00,01:00:00,020,R,0124,CVN2,01:45:00,02:00:00,020,R,0124,CVN2AC#10,VA15,20%,1Hr,VFR,01:10:00,TNG00:35:59,015,R,0123,CVN2,00:39:58,TNG00:55:56,150,R,0123,CVN2AC#1,E2,40%,2Hr,VFR,00:02:00,01:00:00,020,R,0124,CVN2,01:45:00,02:00:00,020,R,0124,CVN2AC#2,EA6,20%,2Hr,VFR,00:15:00,00:30:00,020,R,0006,CVN2,01:15:00,01:30:00,020,R,0006,CVN2AC#4,S3,20%,2Hr,VFR,02:35:00,00:30:00,020,R,0006,CVN2,01:15:00,01:30:00,020,R,0006,CVN2AC#5,A6,4%,2Hr,IFR,00:09:59,00:32:43,150,R,0123,KNTU,02:00:00,02:22:43,050,R,0123,CVN2AC#5,A6E,20%,1Hr,VFR,00:34:00,TNG00:35:59,015,R,0123,CVN2,00:39:58,TNG00:55:56,150,R,0123,CVN2AC#8,VA35,4%,2Hr,IFR,00:09:59,00:32:43,150,R,0123,KNTU,02:00:00,02:22:43,050,R,0123,CVN2NOTES:(S3 is the Viking)F4 and EA6 fly off and ATC controls asks them to contact ground...)Any help will be appreciated,cvn65.jpg

Hello!For your 1), I had the same problem, but did not investigated further. I think that it is the same problem as real planes on a carriers: they need some arrestor cables to stop them ! :DI don't know if it's possible to tweak .air files to reduced runway length needed to land to such a short length.

Hi,I do not think this has anything to do with your AFCAD or FP's.I am wondering whether you use carrier AI tweaked airplanes?What you describe is typically a problem due to wrong .cfg and .air settings.And yes, you can tweak a .cfg and .air file to make the planes stop like if they were caught by arrestor cables by:- putting the spoiler limit to 1000 in the .cfg file- setting braking strength at say -25000 in the .airfile- setting the spoiler drag to e.g. 25.000 in the .airfile.But mind you, it might be necessary to further tweak other parameters as well in order to keep your flight dynamics intact because each parameter imfluences other parameters.That is why I suggest you find yourself some planes that are already made suitable for carrier AI purposes.Try searching for " aircraft carrier" or "CVN".Roby
