    Contrails, vapour trails

    Hi, All I would like to know where the contrails and wingtip vapour trails are hiding. I don't need a recipe on how to do it, as I probably won't bother, but I can't find where they are and how the wingtip vapour trails are located. I am guessing that the jet engines will produce a contrail...

    Intersecting Runways

    Thanks, Ed. In my case the runway that appears "under" is already at the top of the list. :( But life is like that. I know HOW to do it: delete the runway appearing "under" and re-do it. But that is work I was trying to avoid because of all the details. Also, it doesn't matter much, because...

    Intersecting Runways

    (If there is an answer to this question already I apologize. I couldn't find it) Hi,All If two runways intersect, how can I move the "main" runway so that it appears "over" the "secondary" runway? Can the runway order/layer be changed after it is in place? Or do I have to delete it and...

    FSX - AI Tail Dragger taxi turning circle to wide

    Hi, Jan. I tried and it... worked! It isn't perfect, but it is MUCH improved and I'll use it like this. Very much acceptable. It took a little time re-setting the height, but that was trivial. Thanks! Problem [almost] solved! Fern

    FSX - AI Tail Dragger taxi turning circle to wide

    Hi, all I made some AI traffic with one of my planes, a tail dragger, and the turning circle is way too wide. Tried changing the tail wheel angle, rudder effectiveness, rudder maximum angle, no big change. Than I tried the Maule, which is a Microsoft-native aircraft, SAME THING. I tried a...

    FSX - AI aircraft ground steering

    Hi, Roy, thanks for your input. Problem remains, though. I tested a few other tail draggers, including the Microsoft Maule M7, and it does exactly the same thing: turns while taxiing way too wide, totally unreasonable. Does anyone else have observed the same problem with Traffic using tail...

    FSX - AI aircraft ground steering

    Hi, Roy, thanks for the reply. Two things: first, where would that be done and second, is it desirable to change a native part of FS to accommodate a problem that only affects an aeroplane or two? Most planes work fine. Unless it is a problem with all tail draggers. If anyone knows, let me...

    FSX - AI aircraft ground steering

    Hi, all I have a plane, my own creation, that flies just fine. It is a tail dragger and it steers on the ground just fine, too. But I made an AI traffic for it, and it doesn't steer well on the ground at all, curves way too wide. Following a tip that I don't know where I found, I used FSEdit...

    gmax - can't re-open .gmax file

    Bingo! TG, it worked like a charm! Thanks! I had not lost much, because the mdl was working. But now, with the xxxxx.gmax file back in business, I am much happier. Great stuff! Nothing like having friends that know this stuff.

    gmax - can't re-open .gmax file

    Hi, TG Gibson Well, I do that, but, at the end, when it all is working... I clean up. Pretty much 99.99% of the time, before I do the cleanup, I open a second instance of gmax and open the final version again, to be sure it works, because I have been caught before with this problem. But...

    gmax - can't re-open .gmax file

    Hi, All A few times, after I have made an object and, sometimes, even after I have created the mdl, gmax refuses to re-open the .gmax file, telling me File Open Failed. Now, when the file was open in gmax, I generated the mdl, used that mdl to locate the object several times, so the mdl is...
