McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30

39.1k CinnamonCBF  7 months ago

At this point, I really need collaboration, I am really struggling to complete the aircraft.

I am unsure if it's VR capable but I did put the cylinder handle as a throttle handle and the joystick as yokes, the only thing that is missing from the cockpit is trim control

State of the aircraft:

Controls:
AG3 = Reverse Thrust
AG7 = Switch from Yaw to Roll steering

I can already tell that the performance of this will be so bad that some old DC-10s from the website can do better than this

    This is a great build. Unfortunately, the yoke setup doesn't work in VR, but I have a fix for it here. Would you mind if I updated your post with the new XML?

    Alright so because you included my comment I'll make a list of things to fix:

    1. Wheel brakes are very weak
    2. Large gap between slats and engine
    3. Landing gear retracts on the ground
    4. No dampermultiplier on control surfaces
    5. Flaps extend a bit fast
    6. Flap lever in cockpit is on the wrong side, same as the speedbrake lever.
    7. Reverse thrust works in air
    8. Landing gear is weak and bounces a lot on a crosswind landing
    9. VTOL up makes the airplane pitch down
    10. Flap hinges aren't actually attached to the flaps
    11. Tiller turns in midair
    12. Engines don't use any fuel or produce any thrust at idle 0%
    13. Flat bottom wing with no real airfoil (yeah this is a big one)
    14. Landing gear just clips through the wing when retracting
    15. Outboard flaps have some weird curves on them, and all flaps have no airfoils.
    16. No fixed flap positions, the flaps should be in increments of degrees.
    17. Center gear doors clip through center gear on retraction
    18. Center gear doors have a gap when closed

    There's a few more but they would take a lot of effort to fix.
    Nice nose shape.

    @Chillybaconface I have updated the craft XML for this post so now the yoke responds to interaction in VR. If you find any issues with the changes, it's easy to roll it back to the previous version, just let me know.

    @AndrewGarrison Yes, of course I don't mind but this is not the final version of it, it's very rough and Unfinished

    @Chillybaconface
    oh, in Russia, apparently, it is called a little differently. Commander, he is also the first pilot (on the left seat).
    We have a commander and a 2nd pilot in Russia.

    Good job.
    Here's how to make it even better:
    - place the cameras of the pilots below so that the dashboard is better seen
    - remove the centering of the aircraft commander's camera
    - add a vertical speed indicator to the commander's dashboard
    - it is possible to complicate the control of the aircraft, add engine starting procedures, for example
    - add wing flex
    - add camera shaking from overloads.
    - add fixed flap positions
    - increase the efficiency of the reverse

    Great !so can you paint it with U.S.A.F paint and add a refueling gun? If so, we will have the best aerial tanker in the game !
