Sometimes can't refuel at Narwick Airport
« on: February 17, 2018, 04:12 »
I sometimes can't access fuel station of Narwick airport after landing there with Shamal or Nevada. It happened to me 4 times so far, and hasn't happened on other airports. Not sure if lag or specific approach angle is the culprit.

I can solve the problem if I climb into another airplane already on the airport (which can refuel), drive it a little bit, and then return to my plane. Starting and stopping the engine, getting in and out does not fix it. I can't refuel anywhere on the airport.

TiPiR told me to make a picture and post on the forum.

Note the fuel doesn't show a rate, speed is 0, and pressing handbrake start refuelling.

It also occurs with the Beagle.

Here I show in a few screenshots how fuelling becomes available if I use the public parked Shamal. I can refuel my aircraft then, but not if I move it.

If i remember correctly a while ago there was an issue where the z height wasn't accounted for on the airport fuel stations, unsure if this is related though.

The height does seem to be an issue. Turns out that Shamal, Dodo, Stuntplane and Cropduster can all refuel, and might not only as an exception. They all register lower to the ground by 0.4 to 0.9 "meters" than Beagle and Nevada. Perhaps the airport was only tested with popular planes.

Maybe the fuel station can be raised by 0.5 meters. In San Fierro, at 15.4 absolute, [2.3] fuel still works. Narwick 15.3 [15.3] doesn't.

Edit: It seems to be some other issue, I've tried raising the height but some planes still can't refuel.

Never had a problem refuelling at Narwick.
But once I had to emergency land at Verdant Meadows with Shamal, because I was about to run out of fuel very soon (1 bar). And I couldn't manage to find any spot in there to refuel my plane.
I know VM is not a plane (un)loading location, but still couldn't refuel it in there.
