• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

FS2004 AI seaplane traffic : unsolved problem

Hi to all :)
we are asking again FOR AN HELP to free us from a problem which, alas, we can not solve the AI traffic (VFR project on Como lake).
Although we posted a first preliminary version, unfortunately after takeoff the aircrafts crash (disappear) against the mountains surrounding the lake.

We would like to make one last attempt by changing/increasing the rateo of climbing. So, In practice we need to make sure that a piston plane, soaring at high level, can soar with more rapidity.
To date, using piston aircraft that need to reach the 5800 Ft for "climb" a mountain .... we see that these crash on the mountain as they come to it still too low (around 4200 Ft): then we would increase the rate of climb in altitude.
And here's the question: how/where do we proceed to change the Aircraft file.cfg and anything else needed ?
Thank you in advance for any suggestion that can drive us to the solution.

It is unlikely a simple change to the aircraft.cfg file will accomplish what you want. It's the .air file you're going to have to tweak. (AirEd will allow you to do that. The trick is knowing what to change and by how much. Unfortunately, there's not much definitive information available on how the topic)

But, this sounds like more than just a tweak. It would seem to be a fundamental change in aircraft performance.

I suggest you re-post in an aircraft design forum.


Another way may be to adapt the approaches (but that would be for IFR). Check out Jim Vile's threads on the subject in the ADE forum.
Update: sorry this only works for landing not for take-off.
