Engine induced force kicks shaking


Recommended Posts

Whenever I'm revving up for takeoff the A/C shakes violently at certain moments. While testing for the infamous afterburner bug I noticed camera kicks. At that time I thought it's just a camera glitch, but it seems there's more to it after all.

If not for the in-flight occurrences I'd suspect a glitch in tire contact modeling but the spotlight is on the engines right now.


DCS version - ALL OB versions since december 2022

not map-specific


I'm going to post a track sometime later.

Here's the video and associated track file. MTOW 80%

Same instance but external view. It seems that it's the G camera setting is overreacting. No such movements occur on the airframe.


One last video and track - G effects on camera disabled (head bobbing disabled). Note that even with the setting disabled there are instances the pilot is "shaken in the cockpit."

Yeah, the case seems to be clear - here's what happens at engine RPM variations:

1. The in-game airframe actually jitters in a way impossible in real life.

2. Due to the huge accelerations the camera algorithm goes haywire.

Here's a magnified view:
