Title: Custom Sopwith Camel Response Curves
Post by: LeadTurn_SD on March 28, 2012, 02:46:46 AM
I've been fiddling with response curves for the Sopwith Camel and Fokker DR1 to try to "tame" these beasts.  These two rotary-engined planes have unstable centers of gravity and lots of engine torque, and excess elevator authority.... makes them very maneuverable, but very twitchy.
 
For the Camel, what I basically did is slow down the roll-response slightly, slow the pitch response even further, and add in some nose-down trim.
 
There two files contained in the zip file.  They are similar. The "LeadCamelCurve2" is slightly less aggressive changes than the "LT_sopcamel3" file.
 
They go here:  E:\Program Files (x86)\777\Rise of Flight\data\input
 
Then you can go the game, go to Options (along the bottom of the screen), select the Responses tab;  scroll down to the Sopwith Camel in the plane list on the left; select it; make sure the "Use All Aircraft Responses For This Plane" button is unchecked (you may need to scroll up with the right margin scroll bar to see this button); click the Folder Icon next to "Import/Export Curves" on the upper right and find the response file you imported and wish to test; click "Load"; click "Apply".
 
And finally, make sure the "Use All Aircraft Responses For This Plane" button is unchecked again (I know you already did this, but check it again, sometimes it is re-checked, and must be unchecked so that the custom response curve is used).
 
These curves really help smooth and mellow out the Camel, and remove much of the excess positive pitch....
