Hi Jeff,

As it is difficult to understand and to be understood when we do not speak the same language  :(

Yes, I use the rudder, but on my joystick, in twisting the handle to the right or the left, to steer my aircraft on the ground (or on the water for amphibious and floats) or the boats on the water.
What I do not have, is a rudder with pedals.

Yesterday, when I tested the Sirocco with your files, I could not steer the boat with the rudder of my joystick, it ignored my actions and continued straight.
By cons, in serving me the handle of the joystick, in swinging to the right or the left, the boat goes at right or left.

What I would like, is that the boat turns right and  left by using the twist of the handle (rudder mode), as for the aircraft on the ground, and not in swinging the handle to the right or the left as for aircraft in flight ;)

I have not yet tested the autopilot ; for now, I just tried to steer the boat manually.

For the rest, I will try to better understand and continue testing, thank you :)

Good morning Nadine,
     I understand you.  Sorry if you are not understanding something I've said.  I will use the translator.  I was pretty sure you had a twisting joystick.  In that case, just disable that line, like this:

Ok.  Open your airplane.cfg file and edit the line for aileron_to_rudder_scale=1.00/0.04.  You can delete the line, or you can place two slashes (//) before the line.  Your choice.  Make it look like this:

//aileron_to_rudder_scale=1.00 / 0.04

. . . or just delete that line.  Either way will "turn it off".
--------------------------------
Bonjour Nadine,
      Je vous comprends. Désolé si vous ne comprenez pas quelque chose que je l'ai dit. Je vais utiliser le traducteur. Je me doutais bien que vous aviez un joystick torsion. Dans ce cas, il suffit de désactiver cette ligne, comme ceci:

D'accord. Ouvrez votre fichier airplane.cfg et modifier la ligne pour aileron_to_rudder_scale = 1.00 / 0.04. Vous pouvez supprimer la ligne, ou vous pouvez placer deux barres obliques (//) avant la ligne. Ton choix. Faire ressembler à ceci:

// aileron_to_rudder_scale = 1.00 / 0.04

. . . ou tout simplement supprimer cette ligne. De toute façon sera "éteindre".

Little Sail Plan for folks to play with ...

Would you like a nice short evening cruise from Misty's Place over to Herring Bay, or back? Here's one you can put int with your "flight plans" that will get you there. The starting positions are on the map. those will put you right at the boat docks for each (Misty's has a new boat dock). This is a good "example" plan for someone trying the boats ... takes about a half hour. Best toward sunset. (zip file is in fine print under map pic)

Zip Sail Plan Updated 8:29 PM EST
NOTAM: (Interesting, I cannot get the "reverse" (from Herring Bay to Misty's) to start out on the water runway, it tries to start from the Helipad. So there now is no "return" trip.

Returning from Herring Bay

Left the Diner at Sunset, arrived at Misty's Place after dark. The new "reverse" (F2 Hold) is working great and parking at the dock was very easy.  This is a pic of the new dock at Misty's Place.  Coming back at night, the channel is well lit with red and green buoys.

Don't see the new boat dock, Doug.
Where can I find it or the file?
Cheers

One thing I noticed is that IF you have the Medivac scenery active there are two of these docks at Mistys side by side.  No biggie as the Medivac dock has the Hospitial signs on the ends to help keep misc. craft clear.  The dock next door is for 'regular' water traffic.

That's why I put in that second dock. ('of course, people from New Jersey wouldn't notice the Medical Only signs ...) but thought "starting" there would not look good, so I made the second dock nearby.

Speak French?  Ha ha ha.  Never been accused of that before!!   :o  ;D

This isn't getting us back on topic.  I thought I had a short attention span.  Boats people, this is about working on boats!  Focus.
