jundroo's guys are always at the top notch. :) I'm proud to be a player.
@AndrewGarrison Can we have a version of "hollow fuselage" with only 3 side? Opened on the 4th, to create cockpits easily
Thanks to all and thanks to @AndrewGarrison for the time he reserved for us in his sunday.
I'm using the usual collection of glitches... and sadly I must say that tournaments are dead, unless rotators, airbrakes and piston will be banned from the future ones. Otherwise no hope to see again some non glitched creation.
@Chancey21 @Awsomur @BadPilot27 download "tournament validator" mod, is pretty usefull. With a single click and in one second it check the plane and says if is legit or not.
Just published my first plane using this mod. A Spitfire with merlin, and it's awesome. Thanks for relasing this.
Maybe you can drop a little upvote to the original you "raped" in this funny way? ;)
OMG... I can do a variable swep wing built that change the angle based on speed... this is AWESOME!
@PlanesofJundroo I hope to help to achieve a more fair and more challenging race. Happy to be helpfull. :)
@Simpleplaner656 if you can't do a shaker, at least do not surrender to attempt a real glider.
The key is the mass: More mass, more speed. Belive me, put a lot of thiny pieces with 1000 lbs of deadweight each just in the COM and enjoy a really fast glider. My real glider (but I entered a shaker) have a final speed of 555 mph.
@AndrewGarrison please, tell me that shakers are not allowed this time! :D
Thanks for the upvote. I Just published the version for the Blue0Bull's challenge, if you want. :)
@Firepower1000 thanks, but I think tournaments are loosing their spirit. :( Maybe I will enter only mod ones, so everyone will have same chanche. I was sure that 95% of planes will be modded brakes based, but I'm seeing a lot of legit prop engines one. I will really repented to used them, but I must admit, no chanches if I'll dont.
Congrats. The challenge is a great success. A large number of subscription, and a lot of them are very, very high level. :) I followed it a bit, and you spent kind words for every entry, that is the right way to encourage the players.
I think this is one of the better contest I entered. :)
Just a reminder for all, it's useless, I know, but in every car tournament there are couples of contender that do not follow this simple steps, and we need NINE minutes to step forward:
1) AI use THRUST for go forward, not PITCH.
2) AI use ROLL to steer, not YAW
3) If you got engines, you need FUEL. In the tournament there is no "no fuel" mod.
@Sm10684 I hope for something new... like "mod prop class" where the only forbbidden thing is jet engines, or maybe "soap box cars" (no engine, only a hill to descend)
@Operationalsupremacy I can reply for him.. yes, I do it usually. The original must be yours, can't be a successor of a succerssor and the original is from another player. You must be the first and 100% orignal creator..
well deserved victory.
@Tang0five no sarcasm. Tw1st3dPs7ch0 kindly asked for my help, and we exchanged some very nice messages during the publication of its version with problems and the publication of the version I corrected. It was fun to solve problems, and pleasant to deal with him. ;)
IDK if the B on the nose it's a reminder for Baldovino, but anyway it is funny.
Thanks mate, it was a pleasure for me. I really enjoyed this little .... "collaboration".
@TheRoboEli just blocked and reported, are you happy? :)
@DOX Play for your fun, and do not care of attention, or ask yourself what is "wrong" in your planes and use the lack of attention as "test" to improve.
Very well done! (o dovrei dire "molto ben fatto"?)
@BogdanX They are one with mod, and one without.
I think 99% of replicas are so, in SP
@Tully2001 For love of truth we are extremely close, but... I'm a little bit faster. We are speaking of really fraction of second, btw.
But... as usual, probably someone in stealth mode (not declaring the time) is very very fast, and maybe faster than us - I can see very skilled builder in the list...
@beastpilot124 Sure! You can see it on Sunday, in the tournament! :P
Just copied in my notes... usefull. How you obtain this data?
@ThomasRoderick my pleasure.
@ThomasRoderick Mate, thanks for all your kind upvotes. It seem you are enjoing my creations. :)
@Aldriech Thanks, you are really kind. My son also told me to start to built in blender instead Simpleplanes, but I want to fly my model at the end of the work. :)
Any prevision about the official relase? :) Days? Weeks?
@AndrewGarrison Thanks lot Andrew, you are really kind.
Thanks for the glass! (finally we have it!)
Teaser for the glass usage: https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/753272132636770347/753272368633479199/I.jpg?width=780&height=609
In italy it was called "spillone" (big needle, more or less), or "fabbrica di vedove" (widow's factory, more or less).
It's a beautifull plane, and this is a beautifull replica. :)
Hi all. The deadline is reached and passed. I hope we will know the results soon :)
Nice April fool, Andrew
I decided to entered a T-1000 based plane, leaving my ultra performing supersonic rotor based plane in the hangar. I'm pretty sure that a shaker or a rotor based plane will win, but it's time to put a stop.
I wish the cannons could also be used against other planes in flight. Reduced to the minimum caliber and with a rate of fire of 10 shots per second would be more than suitable to do it, but they should also appear in the air / air menu and be supported by prediction. And possibly used by the dogfigth AI
As predicted... the tournament is blocked @AndrewGarrison every time a glitched plane will touch water the tournament will crash. I suggest to disqualify ALL glitched plane (mine too) and redo a tournament in a couple of weeks
@Firepower1000 usually the patience is rewarded with funny moments chatting with friends watching the streaming. :)
@Firepower1000 it depends. Sometime half hour is needed, some other one and half hour. And we must hope @AndrewGarrison do not forget it. XD
My the IA have mercy of the game's engine and not touch the water. Or this tournament will never end.
@Aweyer26 Yes, you are right, and more than this, the weapons mass messed up the CoG, and my perfectly balanced drone now flies like a brick. :P
@Omel Thanks mate.
@Omel I solved the gear problem, it was the 0 mass for wheels and rotators. I rebuilted it in a total different way, more unusual. I just published it as work in progress if you are curious.
@Omel So... "and now go, and make some plane" (citation from Ivan Miranda)
