v1.7.1.0 - Minor update info

by   Dev PhilipTarpley  26 days ago

Some of you have noticed that a small update has been released to the various stores. It should be live everywhere but may take some time for it to be sent out to all devices.

Why are we releasing such a small update?

I'm sure a lot of you may have noticed emails from a bunch of companies with updated privacy policies in response to GDPR. We have been doing preparation ourselves and decided to ease the burden by removing non-essential third-party libraries from SimplePlanes, giving us less to worry about. This includes the Facebook SDK, Unity Analytics, and Everyplay (since it was discontinued by Unity).

We also removed the ability to register from within the game and now redirect to the website to centrally locate account creation.

We didn't want to make it totally feature-less though, so Andrew included a few XML modding related items that advanced modders have been asking for.

I know it may be disappointing to see an update come down the pipe with so few features, but rest assured that we will resume working on 1.8 later this year as we've previously discussed.

Official 1.7.1.0 release notes:

  • Removed Everyplay. Unfortunately, Everyplay is shutting their services down, so we had to remove it.
  • Removed in-game registration. Registration must now be done through SimplePlanes.com.
  • Added dragScale, calculateDrag, and diffuseInertiaTensors XML attributes

Thanks!
Philip

    @Gravity Use notepad++ or some other tool to edit the XML manually. Specify what things you want changed. Lets say I had some wheels that were scaled 0.038271,3727810.48281. I could do this

    0.038271,3727810.48281>Replace>0.5,0.5,0.5.

    Just make sure that you make it specific enough so it only changes the parts you want.

    Could you please add all of the islands to mobile? At least give us the option to have them on the map?

    It would be very nice and thoughtful to add XML and part modifying
    to the mobile version of Simple Planes.

    No. It would cause too much lag on weaker devices. @Wage333

    @WNP78 when updating Overload, is there any chance that you could create a sort of multi-select like on FineTuner? I have no idea how many times I built something with a load of wheels touching, and then realising I forgot to make them 'noCollisions'

    I also noticed that an xml edited propeller with the same disk area can actually propel the helicopter much faster than a hinged (or solid) rotor assembly.
