Airliner touchdown sounds based on G load

#1
Hi

Something that has always bothered me with the sim, if I perform a heavy landing, it never sounds heavy! I recently had the joy of flying the BA 777ER sim over at Heathrow engineering, I undertook loads of landings, some were greasers, some dropped onto the runway like a sack of potatoes. I really knew about the bad ones as I of course felt the thud from the sim movement but also heard the sound.

So.... is this possible within P3d? the ability to play different sounds depending on how hard or soft the touchdown was? is there anything out there (gauge?) which monitors the G load and then allows a corresponding wavefile to be played. I have serched but cant see anything, unfortunately I know zilch when it comes to writing gauges otherwise I would have a go

thanks

Hi,

Not sure if P3D provides such a thing by default (don't think so) but a small XML gauge that plays a touchdown sound (via Doug's XMLsound gauge), with a volume based on VerticalSpeed prior to touchdown, would be easy to make.
Would work in FSX and P3D.
