    @CenturiVonKikie Thanks. As a matter of fact, I designed this as a hypersonic vehicle, with the black leading edge and underside meant to be a heat shield.

    Reminds me of that hypersonic glider NASA tested a while back. I really like the scheme.

    @Z3RO Thanks. Yeah, the game could be so much better, but the pace of development is almost nonexistent. Meanwhile other games are coming along and executing at a whole other level.

    seems like me and tessemi are not the only ones that think the game could be improved im many ways, took the time to read comments while my super quick internet (the lies) downloaded the craft. been missing a lot of your late builds, but still they have the same great feeling. well done man

    @Spectre2520 As @Stingray explains, you can't have mods on iOS because of Apple's security policy. As for the rotations, the UI has a lot of deficiencies. For instance:

    • no keyboard shortcut for the part transform tool, and two clicks to open it instead of a single click.
    • a lack of keyboard shortcuts for commonly-used commands in general.
    • no way to select a group of parts.
    • no way to create a brush with selected properties (for instance, materials, cornerTypes, massScale) and apply those properties to a bunch of parts with the brush.
    • no built-in X-ray mode, and no way to see wing types, orientation (i.e. whether a wing is inverted or not), massScales, fuelPercentages, or parts that aren't connected to anything.
    • every time you alt-tab from the game to Windows or back, there is a delay while the game recalculates something, even though the build hasn't changed.
    • if you connect one block to another, then move the connected block someplace else, the connection point is still "occupied" and you can't connect another block at the same place.

    And the list goes on...

    Bluntly: the AppleStore has Apps acceptance standards that disallow some of the modding preferred by prolific Simpleplanes builders. Specifically, no run-time code modifications are alowed on AppleStore products, to begin with, and there are other limitations. All programming improvements are released on PC Win-10 and higher platforms. The rest of us, Google OS tablets and iOS tablets, use older Jundroo releases. I could suggest that Jundroo think outside of that particular"build-release- build" process, but, I will not since Jundroo has such a small staff. @Spectre2520

    @SledDriver @Stingray I just want mods to be available on iOS, because I’m not likely to be able to get SP on PC and one last thing is the rotations. I have a problem that when I set rotation sensitivity to 25% and rotate something. The rotation is not 45 degree, it’s whether 45.46 or 44.96

    @Spectre2520 @Sledriver Sometimes I've submitted bug reports, as beta tester. I've got just a small view world view, per Jundroo standards, in the huge commercial market. Need help with the big world view, open to interpretation.

    @Spectre2520 My suggestions are radical and extensive and would take some effort to explain, and I'd only want to do that if I had some assurance they'd have some effect. In general, they center around massively improving the building experience with more powerful building tools, completely overhauling the behaviour of mechanical parts, improving performance, and adding more things to do in the sandbox.

    Seems like everyone is hoping for a next huge update including me
    What’s are your suggestions? @SledDriver @Stingray

    Would you be willing to chat with the sw devs directly, so you can refine seed concepts? @SledDriver

    @Stingray I'm not a wishful thinker in any circumstances... wistful thinker, perhaps. But the least one can do is plant seeds of ideas here and there, with any luck a few of them will take root. This game could be huge if the developers took it in the right direction.

    I never pegged you as a wishful thinker re Jundroo updates. Agree, since I’ve received similar wishful comments from some SP “Silver” builders over the last 3 years. @SledDriver

    Thanks, @Stingray. Yeah, the weapons are pretty much standard at this point. I hope the developers create more possibilities with the next update.

    You have accurately lined up where your cannon Hits Jundroo Game targets with the custom tiny reticle dot. Of course, this is not your first. Still, I like this method SimplePlanes weapons engagement.

    I can’t say that your planes look great, because all of them are @SledDriver
