What Was That AI Fix For Posky Planes Again?

Sun May 19, 2002 10:22 pm

I had to format my harddrive before i was able to do a backup last week and doing so i lost hours of hours of hours of hours of work on FS2002 AI flightplans and planes. So please someone post what the POSKY A330 and B767 aircraft.cfg's is supposed to look like in order to use them as well functioning AI planes. I lost them all in the re-format. I know you are supposed to use the default B777 aircraft.cfg and .air file. Thanx in advance.

This is f*****g unbelivable, no one has the posky B767 and A330 working as AI? Clearly this was too much to ask for.

Well Mika, it is obvious no one knows then isn't it!!!

I too have posky B767's and A330's as AI aircraft, and would love to see them takeoff or land instead of what they do now (ie, the A330's takeoff roll is so slow that they never climb out, and the B767's always plumet to the ground about 5-miles short of the runway).

The new flight dynamics on the posky site didn't make a difference to my aircraft either.

Mika,

I have been playing with the posky aircraft, and think I may have a fix for the A330.

First, I found that the start position on the runway has to be forward of the entering taxiway, not behind (otherwise the A330 just sit there). I have adjusted most of the airports I fly to now with AFCAD to reflect this.

Secondly, I made some adjustments to the aircraft.cfg file, and now all my A330's take off and land perfectly. The fields I changed and their new values are:


parasite_drag_scalar =1.200
induced_drag_scalar =1.200

Engine.0= 15.166, -30.386, -4.583 (I changed the last value only)
Engine.1= 15.166, 30.386, -4.583 (as above)

static_thrust= 75000.000 (anything between 72000-77000 seems to work)

thrust_scalar =1.000

I don't know if only one or a combination of these changes worked. Hope this helps with your A330's. As for the B767....still working on it.

B727-200.

ok...
for AI 767s and A330s i did the following:

1st: create a directory for the AI 767s (each version wanted, ie one for 767-300, one for 767-400, and engine version too if you want, though for PW/GE i wouldnt bother cause they look similar and it will just slow down your system to load 2 .mdl files) and A330s (ditto) and copy the contents of the 767/A330 you want as AI to the new directory.
2nd: copy the default 777-300 .air and aircraft.cfg files (copy aircraft.cfg as aircraft.777 or something for now)
3rd: rename the exsiting POSky .air files to a different names and copy the aircraft.cfg
4th: rename the 777 .air to the name of the POSky one originaly (767300ER-PW for example) and rename the 777 aircraft.cfg bakc to aircraft.cfg
5th: make the following changes for the 767:
replace contact points with (the whole section):

thats it, works for me, only trouble is the planes tend to stop very fast on landing, but i can live with that. (and i think i just crashed the spell checker hehe)

Thanx for the responses guys. I knew someone knew about these modifications as i myself had them before my Harddrive crashed.
