Please read first before posting:

This should be a thread where we collect useful informations, helps for others and other useful stuff related to the game. I will try to sum up everything useful with bookmarks in the first post, so you do not have to scroll through the hole thread. Nontheless I'd like to keep the discussions in this thread at a minimum to keep the overview. So please open a seperate thread if you like to discuss about a certain thing. Thank you all in advance. Donnie :)

@admins & mods: Please pin this thread. (Edit: Thanks for that :) )

So i'm going to start with tutorials for all photomissions. (They are easy money and easy followers.)

Traction Control - Limits wheel spin under throttle. Less - allows the tires to lose grip more frequently.
ABS - Allows the tire to rotate under hard breaking. Full + will simulate you pressing/depressing the brake pedal. Makes it so you can somewhat steer while fully on the brakes.
ESP - Reduces the cars power in order to gain traction. Think of it like traction control but at the ECU level. More + will limit power on the car in order to maintain traction. End feel is car is slower in corners but less likely to slide.
Slide Help - Counter-steering in drifting. More + helps with maintaining a slide and transitioning into a new one. With less you can transition drifts much faster but greater chance is a *180.


Aero Distribution - Side of the car airflow is pushing down. Different uses here. Less in the front will cause understeer.

Diff Distrib - AWD Cars Which side of the car will have the most power. More + to the rear allows for oversteering.

Gearbox - Gear Ratio. More + will give you more top speed but reduced acceleration. Less - Will have you slapping through gears quicker but reduces top speed.

Tire Grip Front/Rear - Sticky Tires. Play around with these sliders. Reduced front produces understeer. Reduced rear produces oversteer.

Brake Power - Pressure of the pads on the rotor. More + will slow the car down faster but also has a higher chance of locking up the brakes.

Brake Balance - Ratio of front to rear pad pressure. More to the front will cause understeer during braking.

Susp Comp Front/Rear - Upwards travel of the wheel over a bump. More + is stiffer. Higher it is the more likely you will lose initial traction over a bump. Good for TC where there are few bumps.

Susp Reb Front/Rear - Downwards travel the wheel after a bump. Less - will cause the vehicle to be floaty. More + will make the car settle faster.

Susp Geom Camber Front/Rear - Vertical alignment of the wheel to the body of the vehile. Less - results in the top of the wheel more towards the body. More + is the opposite, bottom of the wheel towards the car. Generally, a little less will give you more traction in the corners but less on the straights.

ARB Front/Rear - Anti-Roll Bar. More + allows less body roll. This stiffens the car. Less - will allow the weight transfer but also reduces the reaction to the turn. These can also be used to induce over/under steer.



Drift Assist - TBD


Weight Distribution - Front to Back leaning. Acts very much like holding forward or backwards on the stick. More + is weight on the front. Reduces top speed but gains control.

Rudder Angle - Surface area of the rudder in a turn. More + will allow you to turn much faster at the cost of speed.

Braking Power - How quickly you can slow down. More + allows you to stop faster.

Buoyancy - How floaty floaty you are. More + will give the boat more surface area above the water.

Hull Friction - Resistance of the water to the boat. Less - allows for some sweet water drifting.

Trim Tabs - Tabs that trim? More + allows quicker transition between left and right turns but at reduced speed.



Auto Climb Control - Keeps you sober. On maintains altitude if level. Off you will start dropping altitude until you have to con-air in Las Vegas.

Knife Flight Assist - Pulls a knife out in a gunfight. While on in the knife fight, it will counter control the rudder to help maintain your level. If left off, you will be defenseless and have to use your teeth.

Automatic Landing Gear - Where landing meets gear. Left on, gear will come out on its own near the ground. Pro mode will have it off, allows for more speed closer to the ground if you do not intend to land.

Ground Cushion - Mother nature's pillow. Rate at which plane pitches up when near the ground. Less - reduces the distance to the ground. -Contribution by miljon3

Ground Effect - Sweet body kits. - The lift produced by real-world phenomena when flying close to the ground. Less - reduces this already slight effect. -Contribution by zhpete


Plane Reactivity - Sensitivity of the Control Stick. Less - reduces how quickly the plane adjusts to your control. More + makes it snappy.

Stall - Threshold at which you lost control. Reducing gains speeds but at the cost of possibly not being able to control your plan. Suggest reducing until you can still performs tricks or turns. Increase if stalling.

Wings Dihedral Angle - *How perpendicular the wings are to the fuselage. * Haven't been able to determine a visual difference in game but stats indicate that more + gives you better roll rates.

Yaw Briskness - Rudder effectiveness. Less - reduces how much your plane will "drift".

Pitch Briskness - The up/down efficiency of the African Swallow. Less - Reduces the rate at which you fall and rise.

Roll Briskness - Do a barrel roll, but slower. - Less - slows down how fast you roll the plane.

Stabilizer Incidence - Rear wing/stabilizer perpendicularness to the rest of the plane. More + will cause your plane to constantly reduce altitude.

Wings Incidence - Rate at which you hit birds. - More + will cause your plane to constantly increase altitude.

"Please let me know if you have any contributions or see any mistakes. Will correct when possible. Thank you and have fun."

Under bridge [+75 per instance]

Flying the plane underneath a bridge that is over water or ground

Vertical up [+1/?? yards]

Here's a small 2in1-tutorial for the stickershop.

How to find the 2D-mode and how to create a stickergroup there. (Bear with me for the small mistake in the videotitle. ;) )

[ Immelmann [+100 per instance]

Details unknown

A half loop followed by a half roll. You'll end up doing a lot of those in Air Race.
