• 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.

MSFS Lift vs AoA Table Causes Crash Upon Loading

Hi all,

Working on a project, I am attempting to set an airliner's lift to AoA table. I do this manually via the flight_model.cfg file. If I use the following incorrect table:

lift_coef_aoa_table = -3.15:0, -0.8:-1.154, -0.4:-0.928, -0.2:-0.781, -0.1:-0.262, 0:0.230, 0.14:1.009, 0.16:1.130, 0.176:1.233, 0.19:0.35, 3.15:0

The simulator will load just fine. However, if I use the following correct table:

lift_coef_aoa_table = -3.15:0, −0.175:-0.584, 0:0.195, 0.175:0.974, 0.244:1.290, 0.305:1.511, 0.332:1.544, 0.349:1.562, 0.380:1.449, 0.403:1.423, 3.15:0

The simulator crashes to desktop immediately upon loading into the main menu. I am pretty new to FS2020's method of aerodynamics and formatting so maybe I have an error somewhere here, but I cannot figure out what the problem is.
Are you editing in expert mode? How are you refreshing your configuration files?

I'm not familiar with what expert mode is, I'm just editing the raw .cfg file in Notepad++. I'm also simply closing and reopening the sim for each major edit. I've isolated the crash to that particular line in the cfg.
