Plane Turbulence

- Adds random atmospheric turbulence forces to all planes.
- Works with any modded plane, RHS, CUP etc compatible!
- Includes serverkey
- Scales based on weather (overcast and windspeed both generate more severe turbulence)
- Larger, heavier aircraft are less impacted due to their mass, however as they have a larger surface area the forces are also greater. This means each aircraft handles turbulence slightly different as the surface area/mass ratio is different.
- As an aircraft approaches its top speed, it becomes more stable.
- Client-side calculations, so the server will not slow down due to this in multiplayer.
- Only does calculations if the player is the pilot, so will not impact performance unless you are flying. Even then it should be minimal.
- Doesn't affect AI pilots (they really need the help)
- CBA settings integration for various aspects of the mod.
- VTOL aircraft are treated as planes by the game, and require the Plane Turbulence mod.

This mod adds slight turbulence to planes based on both the mass and the surface area of the plane. Your plane will naturally bob, weave and change direction slightly due to the natural chaos of the atmosphere. If it's raining or is windy, this effect will become more severe.

This should influence the plane you choose to take, and how you choose to fly.

Known issues:
Does nothing for drones.
All drones still work normally, just without turbulence.

Nice, really love the "new" feeling of flying in A3 with this mod. Thanks for sharing this!
I just wanted you to know that I wrote a small issue report on the GitHub.

Very nice addon. Adds a lot atmosphere. Some time ago I tried to play around with effects like this but never got it quite right.
Great job and thanks for sharing!!

what is some good settings for this for a plane like the tetet fa/18? This mod definitely works on it, I put it on max and it deffinitely worked, but the default settings don't seem to do much and due to my computer being a potato I can't just hop in and out of eden to test different values
