Hoping for a bit of insight/guidance here.
As the title says, I feel that my ST:TNG is suffering from too many airballs. I've spent the morning watching videos of others playing, and I don't recall one ball flying - aside from the canons.
In any game, I can hit the shuttle targets, Q/Adv. Mission target/posts, Alpha Ramp posts, or command decision posts, and that ball has a good chance of getting air borne. The Q/Adv Mission posts are probably the worst, getting high enough to hit the habitrail. I've also had it fly to the left over the command hole, and stops under the Delta ramp on the plastic.
I've leveled the PF to 6.5 deg, and changing it up or down doesn't seem to help the air ball effect. It is level to 0.0 left right (using a digital inclinometer.) The PF is in great condition, no wear in the paint/coating, no bubbles. All original, no mylar.
I'm about change all the ships with the Hallmark ones, new target decals, paint and dome the canons, so while I have things coming apart, what else should I be looking at? It's not "unplayable" - but it's kinda annoying.
