    msFlights.net Group Packet Flooding List

    This list is and will be updated regularly, if you want to check and see if something is packet friendly and verify to make sure you are getting kicked out of the session because of packet reasons, this is the place to check.

    This list was started by Wingman however it due to increased workload in his life I have taken on the project. If you have packet info that you would like to update on this list please let me know via a forum PM.

    This also included known fixes for some aircraft such as the Captain Sim C130 or the A2A J3 cub.

    This list has been set up so that the colors do mean something. The bottom end of the green (0-150) is normal packet use when compared to the default Microsoft aircraft that draw on average 150. Anything in the 100s and 200s is would be considered normal. The color coding starts to turn yellow as you go up to 500. 500 is the first kick level in FSopen and most planes do fall bellow this threshold, some of the most popular airplanes like the A2A 172 and the PMDG 737 do not. Please keep in mind that there are servers who do run the threshold down at 500 and you may get kicked if you are flying anything that is yellow or turning red. Red is 1000, anything around 900-1000 is what we view as packet flooding so depending on server load you can get kicked if we have the threshold turned down to 1000 or 1500 packets. If your aircraft falls in the red keep in mind that your aircraft 6 times the normal bandwidth of a default or green aircraft. We do not suggest you fly the red aircraft when the server is around 30 to 40 members because you can cause server instability.

    Notable aircraft-
    - A2A 172R- Packet floods with failures
    - A2A P-51- Packet floods with failures
    - Carenado B1900D- Cockpit sharing server friendly
    - PMDG 737- Random High Packet count
    - IRIS T-6II Freeware- Not server friendly at all, do not fly

    I believe the A2A 172 is fine if you have all the patches installed. The initial release was high on packets though.

      If anyone wants to dig deeper into it, a user on the Metal2Mesh forums who is helping address packet flooding with their Mirage was kind enough to direct me to the software that him and others use to determine exactly what part of the aircraft is causing the flooding. He has successfully made very minor changes that reduced packet numbers from 1500+ down to 150. I havent had a chance to use it yet as I've been busy so I don't know anything about it other than what is in the readme.

      The file is Doug Dawson's even logger, and can be found here http://www.douglassdawson.ca/ (10th file down)

      You install it as a gauge, "open" the gauge via shift+# shorcut like any other gauge and it exports a log file. If anyone does decide to tinker with it, be sure to share your findings!

        That was when the user had a failure. He had the patch installed but for some reason it was sending out a lot of packets.

        I would be interested in looking at that, I currently don't have time to but I will add it to my list of things I will one day do.
