AI planes creep to the end of runway

Recommended Posts

Hi, has anyone else noticed that using PAI planes, for example at KSAN, near the end of runway 27, the AI planes taxing to 27 for takeoff start to taxi very very very slow...almost like they stop and move stop and move, it takes them forever to taxi to runway 27, I have to tried runway9. Anyone else eperience this? Is there anything that I could do, Im assuming they do this at other airports too.Thanks,Bill

Good morning Bill.This is "Bad Weather" heather.I haven't experienced your problem as I almost exclusively fly DC-3's.The only reason I am replying is because I was wondering if you have tried that utility I have seen posted here on occasion by the name of, I believe, AI Taxi Speed, or something like that. I haven't personally tried that one yet; too many other irons in the fire at the moment, but thought it would be at least something you might want to check out.If you do, let me know how it works out.Good luck!Cheers!Heather

Seems to work fine here. I increased the straight line speed to 23 kts, the sharp turns to 5 kts and the wide turns to 7 kts. This seemed to not only speed up the planes, but also made them move more smoothly! Great job, Andy!-- Tom GibsonCalifornia Classic Propliners: http://members.aol.com/tgfltsim/index.htmlAlcoHauler Locomotive Page: http://members.aol.com/alcohauler/home/alcohaul.htmlFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.com/ San Diego Model RR Museum: http://www.sdmodelrailroadm.com/Drop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

G'Day Bob!I'm not sure which one Tom is using. Seems like I have seen another out there.The one I mentioned, aispeed.zip by Andy Robinson, allows you to put in multiple settings as Tom described.Being a small zip file it takes only a moment to download it at 67k.Here's a pic:http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d13129966c85f12.jpgAfter what Tom has said about it, I tried it out with his settings and am very pleased with it.Good luck!Heather
