Runway friction in FSX... Problem identified: Unrealistic …
Solution? FSPS's Frictionality

 

Runway friction in FSX was always a subject of discussion in the developers and advanced users community. The problem in a few words is that FSX friction is unrealistic. In some cases aircraft would taxi on idle thrust while the real aircraft was not behaving like this (or vice-versa) at the exact same conditions. (Runway condition, thrust, weight), aircraft is accelerating faster in wet / snow covered runways and more.

At the start many thought that the aircraft physics model was not made correctly: For example that the thrust was misconfigured or that the weight distribution played a role.
Actually all problems (most times) are due to the way FSX is handling friction.

You can easily test out yourself a part of the problematic default FSX settings by accelerating with a specific aircraft to a specific ground speed down the runway.
You will notice that you will need (just for example) 10 seconds to reach 50KTS GS on model “X”. By changing the weather setting to have a wet runway you will see that you will need LESS time (i.e. 9.7 seconds) to reach the same speed. Is that possible?

Thinking lightly , someone would say yes. The friction of the same surface when on dry compared to wet is higher, so the opposing force would also be higher, so the distance on the same thrust and weight – thus the time – to reach the same speed would also be higher. But is that true? No. In real life there is also the resistance from the mass of water that the wheels travel on and cut through, so a 'virtual weight' or an opposing force, is added to the formula... That – in real life – causes the aircraft to need more distance and additional time to reach the same speed when on wet!

Some people in the past tried to fixed the problem by replacing the Sim1.dll (the Microsoft file that contains all friction values). Although a pioneer approach to solve the problem, the quality of the results would vary from user to user as some smaller aircraft behaved differently from bigger ones. So the 'patch' would work nice for some but not so nice for others who use different aircraft.

FSPS decided to resolve once and for ever the “FSX friction” problem. By directly communicating with FSX (no need for any external software like FSUIPC) we managed to manipulate the friction for each surface and condition (dry, wet, snow) you could encounter. We managed to be able to manipulate it in real-time, without need of a 'patch' or changing any FSX file. We placed all our knowledge into an application 'armed' with profile saving so you would save each friction for each of your aircraft.

That way you would fix (if you like) only the Grass runway wet friction for your little Cessna that you may don't like , and leave everything else untouched OR you would change all friction values for your complicated Boeing 737 home simulator for all kind of runway types your may encounter and for each of the weather conditions...

Dear FSPS customers, we proudly present you “Frictionality” . The application that will change FSX's friction for ever...

Features:

  • Real time rolling friction manipulation for all types of FSX runways for all wheel configuration aircraft.
  • Real time friction manipulation for sliding and braking friction.
  • Real time friction modifiers manipulation for Wet and Snow contaminated runways.
  • No additional software necessary to send friction into FSX.
  • Profile saving capability that enables you to save different friction sets for any aircraft of your fleet.
  • Popular Aircraft profiles are provided build-in for ease of starting up.
  • Ability to load profile from another aircraft. If they are similar models there is no need to set all the way the second aircraft.
  • Ability to load profile from external sources. If you find a profile shared in the internet or a friend has one ready, loading it is a matter of just some clicks.
  • Test mode to check how the changes you are doing reflects to the aircraft's usage.
  • Results stored in Test mode table for reference during tests.
  • Auto profile loading when selecting a 'ready' & saved aircraft.
  • Significantly light application using latest programming technologies resulting in zero FSX frames reduction.
  • Supporting both original and 'patched' Sim1.dll files.
  • 30 pages PDF manual.
  • License transfer capability without need to contact Support in order to use software on as many PCs you want (only one will work at a time however).

Amazing job from Godzone VF! This scenery looks great and the performance is also good. A must have scenery for everyone who loves to fly to New Zealand.

Nice airport but like all RF Scenery they are not in the same league as Orbx quality so l can’t give them a 5/5. They are really good and do deserve a 4/5.

Been using this several years. Great program with no complaints!
LIONHEART CREATIONS - LIONHEART - DIAMOND STAR DA40 XLS FSX P3D

Just got my PPL in a DA-40. Does not look, feel, or sound like the real aircraft. No left turning tendency on takeoff. Doesn’t float on the landings. Horrible G1000 functionality. Just as good as the Abacus A380.

good scenary, but for a newest soda update is needed, hope the author add this for everyone;)
FLYSIMWARE - FALCON 50 FSX P3D
Stefan
A great addon! Nice model with some animations and a detailed interior, excellent hand flying, an brief yet complete documentation, an interactive load manager and the choice between a rather analogue cockpit and the possibility to retrofit it with a more advanced GPS device like the GTN 750 and the REX weather radar (both to be purchased separately-not included!)! -
I love this bird!
JUSTFLIGHT - A318 JETLINER

I have owned this for a year or two now, it sits in the LITE area of complexity. Wh-
ich means since you are alone in the cockpit work load is reduced by half, which in a way makes it feel even more realist (more time to focus on the flying). It has a basic FMC which operates alone quite well, you can load saved flight plans into, also it will plan major routes automatically and also has a direct to function. Overall it is a slimmed down FMC which works well without the need for external plugins (FSUIPC). Th-
e 3D model is up there with the best, the cockpit is a custom made on, it is a little basic and similar to the Default A321. Flight model is pretty good, it is a little underpowered, and has a tendency to want to "nose down" during decent but over all its really good. (I have actually made a few tweaks to the config to get it to make real world performance and its a dream to fly now). There is NO FLY BY WIRE though, but for this price you cant complain, and performance and framerates are so high that you can forgive this. These days it's the only airliner I fly! And, set up correctly she will fly from Shannon to New York just like the real aircraft can. I found using the sound from the Aerosoft A319 suits this aircraft the best but the default sound is also very good. Overal-
l a lovely aircraft and great fun to fly.

One of the Best VABB scenery! I really loved it! Only if you add some buildings and the fire depot of the airport it will be a great airport!
FLIGHT SIMULATOR INNOVATIVE ADDONS - FLIGHT SIMULATOR FIRST OFFICER TFDI 717 EDITION FSX P3D
Joe
Outstanding! Great addition and also great value per dollar. This first officer is well conceived and just as well executed. It isn't frequent to encounter a skilled programmer who also has a good sense of human interfaces and gui. After my experiences with other add-on copilots, I hesitated on this for several weeks. I shouldn't have. It is just what I wanted in this type of add-on. With this I'm learning a lot of the little things I haven't been doing. I can to a sense learn by example, beginning with letting the first officer do almost everything, then taking more onto myself. I've been an amateur flight simmer for 30 years and can complete a flight with any aircraft. But, I've always known I was taking advantage of the limitations of the sim and cutting many corners. This first officer is teaching me new things and adding a lot to my enjoyment of the flights with him. Thank you, Matthew King! Great Job!
