  • What are the points for? 7 months ago

    Point n. pl; points

    • An energy source used solely by the species known as "Simple-Planeians". They were created by a mysterious, all powerful 5-in one being known as "The Jundroo". Legend has it that they evolved from an ancient 5-star rating system, although little is known about this obselete form of Internet gratification. Points give these "Simple-Planeians" motivation to complete their builds, and satisfy their need to justify the long hours this species spends devoted to their pursuit. Points also grant these beings different ranks; noob, not-as-much-of-a-noob, Goldies, and finally; shiny-bois. All SimplePlaneians strive to achieve this honorable position of power, but are then still pestered by the other ranks to help with random stuff.

    However, in the grand scheme of things, points have been proven to be worthless (don't tell anybody)

  • How do i become a moderator 6 months ago

    @Landonmo1129 the position of moderator is given by the devs to users who they trust and who have obeyed the rules of the site for a long time. The volcano sacrifice ceremony is optional, but common. Mods have a red rectangle next to their name with "mod" in place of their point count. The red symbolizes the sacrificial blood

  • How does one become a moderator (mod)? 25 days ago

    There's a volcano sacrifice ceremony, where you are tested to see if you are able to handle the power of mod-ship. If you pass, you may sacrifice a goat, but that's optional. The red color of the mod symbolizes the blood they spilt.

  • Please stop doing this one year ago

    @FishMiner Presentation of the aircraft is very important, if the creator is proud of their build, they can make an interesting description about it. It doesn't mean that they're being scummy, they aren't setting a bad example. They aren't milking it, they are simply telling people about their creation, which could have taken months to build

  • I’m brand new 10 months ago

    1. With wings, make "fuselage wings" to start out (check some of my aircraft, like the BF-109 and the Gloster Meteor to see what they are)
    2. Unless you're on IOS (which doesn't support modding), go to the "Mods" page, click on one, click "Download", and then "Open". It will bring you to the SP Mods menu, and make sure the one you just downloaded is marked "enabled"
    3. Most people in the community are very nice. I would say the SP community is very supportive of new users.
    4. On an aircraft page, scroll down to below the comments section, and click the orange "Upvote" button
    5. Go read the rules (under the "Stuff" tab)

      Welcome to SP!

  • A story about a little girl and a shopkeeper 1.2 years ago

    Very good! When you think about it, the story and it's implied meaning really make sense, you could even go as far as calling it a parable. The shopkeeper is God, the ants and the colony are the world, and even though God gives us all we need, we still fight over pointless things (idk you might disagree, just my opinion)

  • Why the current system of our site is not fair. 4 months ago

    I believe you're missing the point, partially. Upvotes shouldn't matter that much. Building for fun is more the purpose of the game. Besides, you fail to take in other facts. Screenshot presentation quality? Time of uploading? Part count?

  • Type 95 Light Tank Ha-Go 5 months ago

    Nice tank, horrendous first screenshot. You should've used the last one first

  • [RE] [RP] 1000lb bombs blowing up bunkers one month ago

    @ChiyomiAnzai yes, but any bomb (except purpose designed bunker busters, which still could if they were close enough) with 11 tons will obliterate a tank no problem, as will 1000lb bombs with an accurate strike. The Tallboy, weighing in at 1200 lbs would annihilate a tank, and that's even less than 6.5 tons tnt equivalent. The designation of a bomb is irrelevant, you're saying a bomb with 11 tons tnt couldn't destroy a tank, which is completely false.

  • [RP] Heh. last nights raid was only the first one month ago

    2 things;
    - as @jamesPLANESii said, none of you RP guys even seem to understand that wars cost money (although idk, with your totally realistic GDP's who knows)
    - Nearly all of you would amount to war criminals, with the amount of destruction and death I read you dish out in almost every post about war
    I understand you guys like roleplaying, but if you would just step back you'd see how ridiculous and childish your stuff is. All I see is "ooohhh you have a strong air force huh? Well I have 3000 superheavy bombers loaded with 20 bombs each, and I'll bomb you all I want, oh and I also have 10000 6th gen fighters that can kill anything you send at me. Oh and while I'm at it I'll just drop some nukes on you. And bomb all your cities to rubble. And kill your entire military. I'm not the bad guy, you are!

  • Suggestion: Move mod releases and video releases to Jet Stream one month ago

    I'm fine with mod notifications since they don't happen that often, but video notifications should be moved

  • I Need Your Help: Can We Make This The Most Popular Trumpet on SimplePlanes. And Here is Why 4 months ago

    Not gonna assume, but this sounds kinda like upvote begging... I understand that you feel that your creation is better than the other trumpet, and I feel the same way about some of my planes respective to others of the same type, but just don't ask for people to "make it the most popular"

  • Ga.212 Seabrook 4 months ago

    @TheOwlAce chill, it was a joke, I was mirroring the comment before. A lot of anime is bad, some of it downright terrible, but some is good. I personally don't watch any anime but my friends do and they show me a lot from various shows they're watching. That video was great.
