My AV8B won't move

Recommended Posts

Now that we have a pilot body, I just got into the Harrier after months of not flying this module.

 

I tried out one of the missions I made for myself over a year ago and¬†used the "auto-start" cheat (because I didn't have much time¬†ūüėõ¬†)

 

I probably forgot something, because after the start sequence completed, my Harrier kept standing still rock solid. Even at full throttle/max. rpm (yes, I disengaged the parking brake) it doesn't move at all. Also tried taking off vertically with half fuel, still no movement.

 

As if my wheels are glued to the ground ūüėõ¬†

Also tried the basic cold and dark instant action mission. Same results.

 

I'm obviously missing something.. Any ideas?

i7-8700K @stock speed - GTX 1080TI @ stock speed - AsRock Extreme4 Z370 - 32GB DDR4 @3GHz- 500GB SSD - 2TB nvme

HP Reverb G1 v2 - Saitek Pro pedals - TM Warthog HOTAS - TM F/A-18 Grip - TM Cougar HOTAS (NN-Dan mod) & (throttle standalone mod) - VIRPIL VPC Rotor TCS Plus with ALPHA-L grip - Pointctrl & aux banks <-- must have for VR users!! - Andre's SimShaker Jetpad - Fully adjustable DIY playseat - VA+VAICOM

You have wheel chocks placed by default.  You need to have the Chief pull them prior to APU start.  It's a brake pressure thing and an ED bug.

Ah ok, because I tried that and the crew chief said "unable to comply"

 

Didn't know it was needed before apu start.

 

A bit silly though, that wheel chocks prevent my Harrier from taking of vertically¬†ūüėā

But I understand that's a bug

We all know that ground crew like a prank. Harrier-glue will always be funny to them.

Be aware that the parking brake also now seems to be on by default

I don't think I've ever gotten into a Harrier without the parking brake on.  Is, or was, it tied to the INS alignment preference setting?

This one got me too : )

 

Haven't played DCS for a while. Got into the Harrier yesterday and started it up as usual. Nope, glued to the ramp. Tried everything... well almost, not the chocks! So here's the bit where you get to make fun at the noob. I actually went as far as re-installing DCS before reading this thread (face palm) haha.

Auto Start does put the Parking Brake on - and it is difficult to release - best advice is to bind the release of hand brake to a key. No idea how many times I accidently pulled the throttle back around the horn and switched off engine (after  3 MINUTE AUTO START !!) in trying to use the mouse to release the parking brake

Can anyone confirm if this wheel chocks bug is still not solved?

 

Just refreshed my AV8B cold start training, completed all steps, ready to taxi... and now I can't remove the wheel chocks :doh:

 

 

The face slapping emoji is partly for myself (I forgot about this issue) and partly for RAMBAM (shouldn't this stupid bug have been squashed long time ago?!)

Remove chocks before start up. :pilotfly:

 

Is this issue at all acknowledged by ED and/or RAZBAM?

 

(is this so hard to fix?)

if you would use the search function instead of just assuming then:

 

according to Elmo in some *duplicate report wheel chocks cant be removed thread* in resolved bugs section:

'ED already has it fixed in their internal dev_build'

 

so now we can only wait for this to be pushed to open beta

I wasn't assuming anything¬†ūü§®

But sorry for not doing a full forum search, before replying to my own thread.

Ok, thanks. Good to know :thumbup:

(I guess I expected something as basic as this to be solved "already" somewhere along the first few years of development)

I know Pete, but this one's a bug¬†ūüôā

Even with throttle in idle, you can't remove the chocks

the harrier didnt had wheel chocks before december 2020. 

so if it would have been fixed ‚Äösomewhere along the first few years of development‚Äė you wouldnt have wheel chocks now at all ūüėČ

Wheel chocks are still a thing and parking brake will interfere with throttle if not released.

Releasing parking brake with mouse click does not seem to work well, key board commands are better and should be set up.

My keys are alt-w to enable and shift-w to release.

I don't know they are default or not, as I tend to change keys to my liking.

 

Good luck! :pilotfly:
