Runway friction in Prepar3D... Problem identified: Unrealistic …
Solution? FSPS's Frictionality P3D

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. And not only that but – unfortunately – due to the relation of FSX/Prepar3D, the problem was carried to the Prepar3D also!

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 Prepar3D is handling friction.

You can easily test out yourself a part of the problematic default Prepar3D 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 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 “Prepar3D friction” problem. By directly communicating with Prepar3D (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 Prepar3D 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 P3D” . The application that will change Prepar3D's friction for ever...

Features:

  • Real time rolling friction manipulation for all types of Prepar3D 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 Prepar3D.
  • 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 Prepar3D frames reduction.
  • 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).
  • … and more

AEROSOFT - ONAIR: AIRLINE MANAGER - 3 MONTHS ACCESS
Jakub Ruta
I have been using OnAir since the first closed beta was announced (very quietly) on AVSIM in June of this year (2019) and it has been a wonderful journey watching it develop into what it is today...and the devs have many more plans to add new features as time goes on. Prior to OnAir, I used another similar program almost daily for almost a year and while I still consider it a good program, I prefer OnAir. It has a nicer interface, more challenging and realistic gameplay (especially if you play on survival mode) and the devs are brilliant, very friendly and responsive to the community - a real pleasure to deal with. Questions are answered quickly and there is a very nice Discord community also. Give it a try :-) Everyone gets a free 15 days so you have nothing to lose.

Very good update of the old airport with modern stuff.It blends very good with the sourrounding area of the airport, but i find it just a little bit hard on performance.

Excellent rendition of an untouchable airport so far. We wanted it and now we have it for our domestic Olympic airlines flights. Very good performance.

Excellent work from Stavros,nice performance and visuals and we needed a scenery like this, now we have it! I expect more sceneries from you Stavros!You are great!

I am a frequent buyer of JS products, but like all the others, they just do the stadard things on their sceneries. Nothing special and here, although it's better from the first version.

What can u say for REX? Excellent product, perfect visuals, very good performance. In the end, many ways to customize your views.

Nice update to the old airport, but i think it lacks quality in standard sectors like at times, you feel it's an abandomed airport. The performance is adequate.

The classic JS quality and performance. Nothing more, nothing less,quite a good rendition of Rhodes airport.

I must say. The best bahrain scenery out there. Comes with city and the custom Autogen that comes with the airport just brings everything to life. The airport is also wellmade and is worth every penny. Well done.
