Thread: how to add landing gear compression to the default 737-8?

  1. Default how to add landing gear compression to the default 737-8?

    after flying with some planes i noticed they had a landing gear compression but the 737, looks more like a rock how can i add landing gear suspension works on the 737?

  2. Default

    If you go into the aircraft's aircraft.cfg file, inside it will have a [contact points] entry.

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...mozTocId836373

    In there change the value for Static Compression.

    This is the distance a landing gear is compressed when the empty aircraft is at rest on the ground (feet). This term defines the “strength” of the strut, where a smaller number will increase the “stiffness” of the strut.

    Try a higher number. .

    FS2004 and FSX are CPU ORIENTATED games. Don't go hog wild on a GPU! Won't matter.
    From RLG, Fly heading 053, intercept 315 DVV, look for the orange glow of a SAM.

    It needs to be modelled in the animations of the actual aircraft. I don't have FSX installed any longer but IIRC the default 737 will bury its nosewheel in the tarmac if you mess with the contact points, which looks even less real.

    can ya show me where to change please i'm on the aircraft .cfg but i dont know where to change: https://imgur.com/a/y6QRAMw

    You may want to ask here as I'm not entirely sure what values would be sufficient. They are values 9-11. It looks like they are all at 4. https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/fo...t-dynamics.65/

    If you go on this yourself it will be never ending experimentation.

    It's not an animation. This is the physical characteristics of compression on the aircraft. That's what the aircraft.cfg does. It tunes the A/C
