KTIW flying under the bridge


Recommended Posts

I just bought this one because it seemed to have a nice looking bridge in the screenshots, and I thought if none of the default bridges allow me to fly under them, perhaps this one will.

 

But although the underside of the bridge is very nicely modelled, there's still an invisible barrier that brings up an erroneous 'you collided with an object' message, just like every other bridge.

 

Is this a limitation of the sim, or am I doing something wrong? (Apart from repeatedly flying into force fields.)

It's MSFS.  Devs haven't found a suitable way to get around it yet.  However, if you set one of the options in the menu to remove realism in the aircraft you can fly under the Sydney Harbour Bridge (I don't know about Tacoma though).  Can't tell you which option because my MSFS is updating atm but if you can't find it then there was a thread a couple of weeks ago probably in the MSFS forum here that gave pointers.

You'd have thought flying under bridges would be one of the first things anyone would try, given an aerobatic plane (or a 747) in a flight sim. Perhaps it's an intentional 'nanny state' behaviour.

 

If Orbx ever figures out a way to mod this out without having to turn the aircraft into a rubber ball, I'll buy it for sure.

Having crash damage off shouldn't make any difference if you:

a.  possess even a small amount of judgement, and 

b.  can make your own judgement on whether you've 'crashed'

 

To deny yourself the joys of MSFS because you can find fault in a small part of it is, to me, just plain ludicrous.

I consider myself duly admonished. I just didn't want to end up with an aircraft that's like a Mario Kart after consuming a power star.
