#Real-Life Drag and Drop

With RandFailuresFS2020 you can randomize in-flight failures and check if you can detect them, handle them and survive. From minor panel or turbocharger failure to complete brakes or engine failures. You can try what would you do in case of

  • Asymmetric flaps
  • Trims failure
  • Primary flight controls failure
  • Gear failure
  • Coolant leaks
  • and more

Failure can occur in one of four moments (which you can turn on or off) :

  • Instantly
  • On takeoff
  • After random set of secconds
  • At random altitide
  • At random speed

Instalation manual

    It would be good if it can simulate wear and tear. So, have a global timer per plane and when you have a probable failure lets say between 0 mins and 5000 mins it can count all plane hours. Otherwise you always have failures and is not realistic. I want an option something that fails like in real life, not everytime that I turn on the app.

    Finally, have the option to fail within a time lapse in minutes, not seconds, so the probabilities are lower.

    Thanks

    Im working on it but even when plane wil have 0 mins there will be small probalility for failures. Even brand new aircraft can fail. Low probability but possible

    And about minutes just multiply by 60. It wont lower probabilities. If you want failure between 0-10 minutes then you have 1/10 so 10% chance that it will happen after exact 1 minute. In seconds you have 0-600 so probability that it will happen after exact 1 minute is 1/601 so much lower. But if you want failure to happen after 1 minute but before 2 minute then you have 60/601 so also about 10%. Just that it would happen at any point between two minutes and not exact at that minute
    Lowering time from seconds to minutes will just lower resolution. And you would know that if at takeoff nothing bad happend (timer starts at takeoff) then you have at leats 60 seconds peace

    You dont. This is not in-game addon and it doesnt have ingame menu, this is externall application. So you run exe file and do everything in application

    Will I be able to fail a system whenever I want, or only before I start the flight?

    If you are asking about when system will fail then you can set this whenever you want based on altitude, speed, time...
    If you are asking about when you can set this parameters and click "start" then you also can do it whenever you want but I recomend preparing this parameters before flight and click "start" before doing preflight checklist

    Should I run the .exe file everytiem I start the the sim or the flight ? Is there an availability to get back to default settings (having this prorgram not working) in case I don't like it ?

    Doesnt metter. You can run .exe whenever you like. Just click "connect" after starting sim or flight and click "start" after starting flight. Yes, you can get default settings, just delete "settings.txt" file

    ...and how can I setup the program to generate whatever type of failure at whatever time ? To have it fully random.

    Well, if you want to have random failure based on time only then check only "after rand time" box in options tab (uncheck others), set min and max time (so your estimated flight time), and set all failures possibilities to... Whatever % you want. Lets say 2%. Now when you click "start" (and have flight loaded) all failures have 2% chance to occur. If failure will occur then there will be randomized time in seconds (between that min and max time) after which failure will occur. Thats all :)

    Been some errors with the app, causes plane to freeze in air, but still move forward.

    Could you provide list what have failed so I can investigate this case?

    Sure! When in the 747, my airplane froze at a consistent altitude on stream. I can send you a link for more on what happened. Sort of failed video (not my best since I had nothing to do :)

    I've had this, I think it is because the indicated altitude is frozen and therefore the flight simulator thinks it is remaining at that altitude so more an Asobo problem than anything else. You can still roll and yaw and pitch but no altitude change.

    is there a way to save the .exe in the desktop without getting an error message?

    I assume you just pasted only .exe file to desktop. You can't do that. .exe file have to be in directory with all other files just as in archive. If you want to have it on desktop then unzip archive to directory anywhere and then create shortcut on desktop to that .exe file

    Put this anywhere you want and run .exe file. This is external application

    I'm loving this addition! Any chance you'd be willing to add a save feature so we can have custom sets and quick load them?

    Fully loaded 747-8, taking off and just past V1 and engine 2 fails and rolls back. Made for an interesting flight and landing the bastard. LoL. Great mod mate.

    Thank you very much for this! Still haven´t got any failure (I set all to 2%). But this makes flyng much more real and entertaining! This should be included in the game!
