I've been doing a lot of testing recently with the new terrain additions, balloons and such. Now that aircraft are more likely to get shot at and hit while patrolling the front lines I've been noticing more and more CTDs during my missions. Well I found the cause!! Turns out there is something with the fuel leak and rad leak code that makes the sim shart itself and CTD. The issue is with the engSFC being changed when the tank or rad take damage. This is done via an obExec and obFunc. SDOE does model real fuel leaks and I suspect that when the tank gets hit and the game engine creates the fuel leak when the obExec and obFunc have been enacted the sim CTDs. So I'm removing all of that code from all FS-WWI kites. I had a 100% success in CTDing on this very intensive front line patrol mission I created. I removed the code from all of the aircraft in the mission and no more CTDs! Happy FS-WWI should now be most stable to play for long periods.

I just ran several intensive missions that I know I've gotten CTDs on before. With the code updates, I ran each one for a couple of hours with no CTDs! Wow
