Determine under what circumstances planes may crash.
Configuration file: planecrashcontrol
Command line: -Xc
Using this switch you can determine under what circumstances planes may crash, as well as the probability of this happening.
The switch is a bit switch. To find out how that works, see Bit Switches, or simply add up the values of the options you want:
|0||1||normdis||Normal plane crashes are turned off if disasters are turned off in the Difficulty Settings window in TTD. This does not affect crashes that occur when a jet plane tries to land on a small airport --- i.e. those crashes are not "normal".|
|1||2||jetsdis||Jet planes landing on small airports don't crash if disasters are turned off.|
|2||4||normbrdown||Normal plane crashes occur only when a plane lands after a breakdown, but then they are four times more likely than normally. If this option is specified together with the next one, it affects all plane crashes, not just normal ones.|
|3||8||jetssamerate||Jets landing on small airports have the normal crash probability.|
|4||16||normoff||All normal plane crashes are turned off, regardless of other settings.|
|5||32||jetsoff||Jets landing on small airports never crash, regardless of other settings.|
For example, with planecrashcontrol 5 normal plane crashes occur only when a plane is broken down, and only if disasters are turned on; planecrashcontrol 48 disables plane crashes altogether.
With this switch turned off, the normal crash probability is about 1 in 1500; for jet planes landing on small airports, the probability of a crash is 1 in 20.
