I came to X-Plane with v.11.02, now up to 11.20. Flew FS9 almost every day for almost 15 years - don't think I have even run it since I discovered XP. Love it to bits... smiley

One issue grates on me every time I fly though (well, there's also the groundhandling of the c172, but that's a different point altogether), especially in a/c larger than a Cessna. The braking is either all or nothing.. and when you apply brakes even the largest aircraft, like the B744, tip forward tail to nose in a most unrealistic fashion. Anyone know if this 'nosewheel springiness' (user fixable in FS9) is on the list of stuff to attend to? Progressive braking (I had to install a third-party plugin for this, which helps) via the joystick would be great. And eliminate this tilting effect, which looks daft IMHO...

Many thanks.

Any of the key or button assignments for brakes are pretty much all or nothing. You can set left & right brakes to 2 axes (such as those on rudder pedals) for more realism & control.
