Wobbly AI when taxiing


Recommended Posts

I expect I know the answer to this, but I'm going to ask anyway. Is there any way to cure the extremely unrealistic wobbling of AI traffic when taxiing? I find it really spoils the immersion when taxiing behind another aircraft and when it goes into a turn, the entire aircraft wobbles from side to side. Does this happen with all AI addons and if so why? If it cannot be cured, can it be alleviated in any way? Thanks...

The back end of an aircraft is 12-30 m behind the main gear that should not move sidewards, so if the aircraft turns 60 degrees the tail will move sidewards the same amount - aircraft do not bend - or do I not get what you want to describe?

One point is that on the airports the different segments typically have an angle of 45 degrees and often 90 degrees and are not modelled smooth over longer distances for performance and memory reasons - so an aircraft that arrives at a certain point is told by the airport layout to make a sudden turn.
