Slight bounce and tire screech when changing views on ground

When the aircraft is on the ground, if I change views (cockpit to spot, spot to tower, etc), the plane jumps about 6 inches off the ground and drops back with a tire screech.

Mmm, we can not recreate that and none of the testers has experienced it. But we do know from experience that the contact points on some systems are more touchy than on others. If you happen to have AES on your system you could use the [repair] option of that. It will change the contact points and most likely sort out that problem.

I am using FSX. It might be related to some kind of texture loading because it does it right when changing views and some terrain textures are still popping in. It's not a big deal. Just thought I would report it as it seemed odd.

It only happens when the mesh slider is on 2m or 1m and at those settings, I've found a lot of add-ons do this initial small skip. Personally, I've not experienced this for ages on any add-on because I don't have any 1 or 2m mesh................I didn't know there was any in fact.

The simple fix is to turn the mesh back to 5m; if you don't have any add-on mesh that's better than 5m resolution, you're not getting anything from the 1 or 2m setting anyway. Of the top of my head, I can only think of Earth Simulations as releasing anything that would benefit from mesh settings of 1 or 2m i.e. Guernsey and Scilly.........but there may be others.

indeed, like Austria Pro, Antarctica X, Dangerous Airports, Skiathos and others, according to the recommended settings in the manuals.

Hello Mathijs,

I just tried the new aircraft.cfg at Mykonos and confirm that the bouncing has gone.

Problem seems to be solved.

Best regards, Jörg

If I get one more okay we'll add that to the 1.02 update.

Yes: in [CONTACT_POINTS] section, updates to static_pitch and static_cg_height parameters.

Oh I missed that! That means he used AES repair option from what I see. I'll use the repair for the F-16 then
