A simple hot air balloon
Actually similar to the Simple Balloon but with added details to match the function.
How to use
- Strap, Throttle and Float
Controlled Floating - The bigger the flame, the faster it floats. Well what a hot air balloon does.
Adjustable - Located here is the flame were you can change the input.
- You can toggle the power of the flame by changing the PowerMultiplier through xml modding. You can also change the input if you like.
- By default the balloon can lift about 2000 pounds or even more at maximum throttle.
- If you want the string to be longer or shorter adjust the range of the winch.
- The balloon is mirror-friendly
- Slowly decrease throttle if you want to go down same as when ascending because it can sometime mess with the balloon and fly in random directions especially if multiple balloons are attached.
- I suggest to keep the throttle at about 25% or just enough to make the balloon float when on ground. This is to make it stable when flying again especially when multiple balloons are installed.
Here's a Demo
Well I am quite glad that the simple balloon gained a decent amount of attention and updoots. That is thanks to you guys. I literally constructed the balloon within an hour and didn't expect it to gain much updoots. Guess Floaty Boi wins after all lol. Well again thank you guys.
Anyways have fun. And I'll keep making stuff like this.
