Distance between TPs and non-flyable zone

Post by Kekelekou » Wed Sep 29, 2021 7:57 am

Hello,

The first serious landscape I have been working on for a few days is pretty small : 5x3 tiles to keep it achievable, but it means that I have to pay attention to the location of the TPs if I want that meaningful triangle tasks can be flown. Several TPs fall into the 5km wide non-flyable zone along the boundary of the scenery.
I can adjust the location of the northwest corner to include as many TPs as possible but the question is : how much margin from the non-flyable zone should I add so that the pilots can fly around the TPs without any major inconvenience? 2km? 5km? More than that?

Thanks in advance for your feedback!

I flew a task in Slovenia with less clouds but a very nice one beside a TP, before reaching it I hit the border. Cost me the task, had to land out.

I think 5 km should be a good distance. With 150 km/h you need 2 minutes for 5 km.


EDIT: The turnpoint was VARAZDINSKE TOP

Thanks M.Klett for your input!
How close to the edge is VARAZDINSKE TOP? I can't tell from the screenshot you posted.

Looks like round about 6 km

6km from the map limit means only 1km away from the non-flyable zone. Looks pretty close indeed :(
I could get all major TP more than 4.5km away from the non-flyable zone, with only one secondary TP within 4km.

This will be good enough. The default radius for a tp in Condor is 3000 m.

Well well well. It seems I was mistaken : the non-flyable zone is not 5km wide, but 1/4 of a tile = 5.760km.
So this means that 4 TPs are only 3.8 km away from the limit. But I could create at least five 150km triangles and one 200km triangles without them.
Everything is settled then... :lol:
