How do you steer on the ground in FS2000?

If you have the Microsoft Sidewinder stick, just twist the stick smoothly, and the plane will pivot or turn. It's pretty easy. You pretty much use the rudders. So whatever moves your rudders in the air, steers your plane on the ground.  Smile

Depends on which aircraft you have.

There are some FS2000 plane out there will steerable nosegear (this can be moved by moving you joy stick).

Othewise, rudder is your only choice. Also, keep the engine running at around 42% N1 and keep your speed above 10 knots. some plane like 744 would wobble around at speed less than 10 knots.

I have CH Pro Rudder Pedals, which control my rudder function (duh!) and ground steering. You can also do differential braking using the F11 (left brake) and F12 (right brake). You hit F12 and aircraft will swing sharply to the right. For tail draggers, its the only way to steer. I have a DC-3 add-on where steering is best done with differential braking and thrust. To turn right I do F12 and increase thrust on left engine.

Nevermind guys, I figured it out. I'm not sure what you're all talking about...I just turned Num Lock "off" and I can steer using the "enter" and "0" keys. Thanks anyways!
