I been having a serious problem with Rocksim 10. Maybe someone can give me an idea how to fix it. The altitude predictions are extremely low. To demonstrate the problem, I created this simple rocket design. Here is a screen shot of sims run in Rocksim 9 and 10.

As you can see, something is going wrong with Rocksim 10.

It looks like you’ve got good airspeed off the launcher and good acceleration, and the mass is the same. Something is making the rocket come to a dead stop at some point on the flight.

Double-check your atmospheric setting and make sure you’re not launching from 30,000 ft below sea level or something like that. It may also be worth checking the motor files for problems if the air density isn’t completely out of whack.

EDIT: What does your wind speed look like? I notice your weathercocking is listed as unsafe in RS10. If you’re launching in a hurricane, that would definitely be a problem.

I don't see any problems with the settings. They were all defaults. I did notice if I rerun already ran sims, they ran fine. Here is the rocksim file with sims run in both rocksim 9 and 10
