Boeing B-17G "Nine-O-Nine"

40.1k CoolPeach  1.8 years ago
Auto Credit Based on temporaryaccount's Boeing B-17G Nine-O-Nine

Edit: Cheers for the support, I cannot believe how much you guys like this.

After much blood, sweat and tears, (and a toasty iPad) I'm really proud to present the Boeing B-17G "Nine-O-Nine". She features a custom cockpit, interior, classic "Nine-O-Nine" livery (missing some bomb tallies, but I wasn't gonna put all 140 on there), gunner positions and much more. This is probably my best build so far, considering the new 1.7 tools for iOS.

Please enjoy this beaut, and if you didn't, tell me why.
Mobile Version: (Coming Soon)

Massive thanks to @temporaryaccount for being my advisor/XML modder during this build, couldn't thank him more. He played a big part in getting this together. Also thanks to @EpicPigster1 for helping out too.

Controls:
AG1 + VTOL - Bomb Bay
AG2 + VTOL + TRIM - Chin Turret
AG3 + VTOL + TRIM - Dorsal Turret
AG4 + VTOL + TRIM - Tail Gunner
AG5 + VTOL + TRIM - Waist Gunners
AG6 + VTOL + TRIM - Ball Turret
AG7 + VTOL - Flaps

Infomation:
Nine-O-Nine was a Boeing B-17G-30-BO Flying Fortress heavy bomber, of the 323rd Bomb Squadron, 91st Bomb Group, that completed 140 combat missions during World War II, believed to be the Eighth Air Force record for most missions, without loss to the crews that flew it. It's nickname originates from the last three numbers of it's serial, 9,0,9

    The guns seem to fire all at once, so I might add the key binds for the plane. But overall the plane is great!

    The plane is very accurate and handles well for such a plane. It is very accurate to the real thing. I was able to go inside the real nine-o-nine, and it is very similar to this.

    @CoolPeach when would the mobile-friendly version be released ?
    And if you want to know, this plane is the first one I downloaded when I got the game.

    This thing deserves more attention. It also runs 10× nicer on my tablet than a 500 part bomber

    I like the way you designed it because this format does great when it get damaged it breaks apart not spontaneously exploding from one part exploding it’s fin to just drop your bombs immediately and fly over the ww2 challenge and see how far you get
