I told myself I'd never come back to this game.

And I haven't, not really. I've decided to un-delete my proudest achievement, and my last one. I couldn't just leave it sitting in the dust, and by not doing so I have have touched this game and this site for the first time in over 468 days.

Basic control layout consists of the following:
AG1 Allows turret movement, controlled with the mouse and allows for the firing of the Cleavers, infernos and defensive Interceptors.
Boom25s are the "shells" to fire out of the barrel.

Trimming up is for the engine
Throttling up is for movement in water

AG7 deploys chutes for air-dropping, currently broken due to some update.

AG2 Allows for the top-mounted rotary cannon to be controlled with the mouse, which also has an effective range of 5 miles against air targets[camera1].
Camera 3 is an aim assist if you have the advanced targeting mod.
AG3 allows mouse control of the commanders cannon[camera 2].

AG4 activates the invisible forcefield if you hold down the "fire guns button", which will prevent any missiles from harming you if they attempt to strike you head on with about 30 degrees of lenience.

I may have missed some controls, but those are the important ones.
Special features include some armor, fast water movement, extremely capable offroading, force field, two-axis stabilized gun for firing on the move, and a super effective AA rotary cannon, especially with advanced targeting mod.

Clarifying, I do not intend to cause any problems. I am only coming back this one time because I felt sad that my best creation would be lost forever. I don't really care if anyone actually downloads this, I just want it to be preserved on the internet.

    I know this might seem a bit rude but could you make some tank treacks like that for my tank. I suck at it and I need some @adeleteduser

    @Zanedavid It's on PC only, steam and GOG. Far too intensive for mobile.

    @Zanedavid Besiege. Its original concept is vastly different but it has transformed into something else very vaguely akin to simpleplanes.

    @adeleteduser You can't forget about simpleplanes because deep inside you there is the desire to play it.

    took a while for me to recognize this one, cause in the original Aamon Abraxas you uploaded, it was colored gray. Nice build nonetheless!

    @Baldeagle086 I'd be willing to give you the dropbox link to all my saves
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/xus4dhpas2pcr4s/SimplePlanes.zip?dl=0

    There's like a few items in there that aren't mine, like the object 526
    and mbt 1980 something and 1:1 USS Beast.

    So long as they are preserved it simply does not matter to me what people use them for even if they claim the creations are theirs.

    @AWESOMENESS360
    I knew that bullets destroyed missiles so I added tiny guns to an old tank which spammed the area in front of it with laggy, low velocity projectiles.

    Later I refined the concept and came up with a more modern design that scales the bullets down to 2d lines which reduced lag and increased effectiveness.

    Any missiles attempting to attack you head on while it is active will be destroyed a fair distance away from the tank, as if they blew up mid-air.
    My hovertank has the best version and protects the sides more than this one does.

    According to my file dates the first version of this forcefield was created 564 days ago.

    What do you mean by saying it has a force field? ‘Cause if you’ve managed to make a functional force-field that actually repels bullets, missiles, and other stuff, that’s really impressive!

    @Baldeagle086
    I'll bring back two more but the rest stay in the dust.
    I am not coming back, only a select few of my things are so they don't get perma-deleted.

    @Mmdben I lost all desire to continue playing this game due to its age and limitations.
    I've since moved on to a different game that has a similar capacities for creation but less limits on them, along with a similar community. I am still annoyed that I can't just forget about simpleplanes because thinking about it makes me nostalgic.

    I also originally played this for fun but I got sidetracked and started feeling obligated to make better things, which took the joy out of it.
