I have just tried this again with the qualitywings 787 and it also collides with the wall so its not just a PMDG bug. It would seem that default p3d aircraft arent affected though which is strange.
I would like to test the FSLABS a320 but i cant atm since it isnt yet compatible the newest p3d hotfix that was released, maybe someone here who still has the previous p3d v4.5 installed could try it?
I also dont think this thread is going to make any kind of progress unless we get someone who has actual insight in the code such as a staff member from p3d (like thats gonna happen) or from pmdg or QW...
Ok something interesting just happened, as previously mentioned the pmdg 777 is also affected HOWEVER during takeoff rotation I had a Tailstrike (which in the pmdg 777 is actually modeled and you will get a warning and bulk head blowout etc) but since I was only testing this bug I ignored it and just turned downwind/base etc. To my surprise this time I managed to do the approach/touch and goes multiple times without any issues (?!). After that I immediately restarted the sim and tried again but this time without tailstrike and as usual my 777 hit the wall again on approach. This has just confused me even more o_O
Now, would you like me to add the flurry of confusion? :)
I tried this in the default Coast Guard C-130 and I hit the wall on the approach. I think the C130 is the biggest default aircraft, it just so happens that the majority of P3D default aircraft are extremely small.
Now, I have 4 Orbx products: Base, NorCal, Vector, and Open LC NA. When I disable NorCal I never hit the wall! I have an active troubleshooting thread on the Orbx forums, here is the link if you have an account: https://orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/172 ... flictions/
However, when Orbx NorCal is disabled the grass bleeds through the runways, almost like the airport and ground beneath it are at different elevations...
Runways cannot be curved (in P3D), right? Thus the textures going through the ground? I do not know if there is any truth to my hypothesis.
But this happens in the base game as well correct? Perhaps one of the Orbx products fixes it, it just so happens that NorCal over-rides it back to default when enabled.
Here is the video I made for troubling with one of their members, Orbx NorCal disabled: https://vimeo.com/336492087
