Landing gear tilt

Every aircraft with two or three axes has a tilting main landing gear, some backwards and other forwards.
Why do the developers seem to ignore this?
Aircrafts would look more realistic (especially the A330/A340), and landings will be smoother.

Not related to the topic but here are a few recommendations for posts and comments:

@Laurens keep the title as simple and descriptive as possible. In this case the “…Please!” is unnecessary and superfluous. Good post title = easy searchable.

@Omari_Joseph refrain from writing in bold unless it is for emphasis or title headers. It is more distracting than anything (I fixed it for you here)

@Boeing707 no need to sign each of your post. The comment/post header has your name already.

I’ll try to add those recommendations in the forum guidelines. As a rule of thumb, we want focused discussions, something that is not advancing the current topic should not be added or should have its own topic. “Ok” and “Thanks” should be implicit, use the “Like” feature for that to avoid adding tons of new comments that have no real value to the conversation.

so to the devs 😂 im still waiting on gear tilts. Especially for the A330-340. I’d like my landings to look smoother and feel more realistic. It basically looks awesome when plane wheels are tilting.

It makes landing smoother? Wow will really help me land better(not that I can land properly all the time).

Why this is IF and that is Aerofly

Because some people don’t like when other apps are “promoted” or compared to IF. There both great simulators/games but people have different opinions.
