Taxi to gate
« on: May 02, 2017, 09:01:31 PM »
Hey

What exactly triggers the taxi to gate message in SIM ACARS? Is it time based after touchdown or speed indicated?
I am asking because I get a taxi speed penalty quite often immediately after the taxi to gate message. I would need to brake unrealisticly hard to avoid a taxi speed penalty.

From what I understand, after the speed of 40 kt the Sim understands that he started the taxi, then from there he monitors the speed, for example: When you enter the track, even if it is backtrack, it can not exceed 25kt if it is not punished By speeding.

I need to review that part, now I do not have the code in front of me, but the high level vier of this functionality is: once a landing is detected + you reached x speed if you have a GS>25 it will detect as excesive taxi speed

In this case it would be nice if you could rewrite that part a bit. For example if landing detected + GS<=25 triggers taxi to gate, it would prevent a taxi speed penalty during rollout.
At the moment I assume it's not based on GS.
