Hello all! As everyone has seen, Infinite Flight has added a new functional pushback tug in the new 22.2 update this week. However, with every new update comes it’s share of problems. The issue I have found, and I’m sure many other have as well, is not device specific, rather something to do with the tug model itself. Simply, the universal model used is far too large for the majority of the narrow body fleet. Every variant of the 737, A320, CRJ and ERJ families have minor to severe fuselage clipping issues. Here are some examples:
CRJ: (Moderate in neutral position, severe once turned 80°)
I have come up with 2 solutions:
Making the tug optional and not required to be able to push back from the gate. Not ideal but overall would make the pushback experience slightly better for those of us who enjoy the CRJ the most.
Adding another tug model. This other model would make pushing back in the narrow bodies more realistic. The tug I’m talking about is the one with the tow bar:
I believe that a second tug model would pushing back a lot more realistic for some of the most popular aircraft in the infinite flight fleet.
(If this isn’t the correct category, please let me know, thanks!)
EDIT: It has been brought to my attention in the comments that this was mentions in the blog. Thank you for pointing it out, I didn’t see it.
