Donations page and advertising yes... Money for account - no. There's no point and the community would shrink considerably.
This is probably going to be controversial, but imma say it anyway because it's not likely to offend anyone.
I think, with everyone getting angry over the upvote system, that we need a new system in addition to this. I propose the option to rate the aircraft in a series of categories, generating an overall rating for the aircraft. This isn't foolproof and wouldn't have helped the GC situation, but it can help eliminate some of the problems with upvoting at the moment.
'we paid whole runway, we use whole runway'
ive had this happen so many times...
couple of things you could try:
1: regularly publish your creations unlisted
2: copy the xml and bak files into a different folder - if this happens you can just copy them right back in
3: make multiple saves of the same build, which reduces the risk of them all getting corrupted
hope this helps
@rexzion no. the way is simply to install the yamato battleship that was made a couple of weeks ago and spawning that in. if it manages to actually load, I commend the server. 84 boom 50s generate significantly less lag than 1 yamato containing 20,000 parts worth of doom.
yes well done congrats (prays it wasnt him i accidentally blew up on mp last week)
If the golf island isn't there I will be sad (upvotes anyway)
(Edit) OH MAI GAHD IT HAS THE GOLF ISLAND!!
i think instead of concave parts there should be a 'negate' tool. that way we can make interiors easily while keeping the part count down
i smell a gyroscope xD looks cool though
@asteroidbook345 I don't know what you're talking about this is the peak of simppeplanes building skill
@Ploooperman jeez dont have an existential crisis or anything!!
'this plane is far from perfect' (just casually gets 3rd/4th highest voted plane in a year)
@spefyjerbf um oh hi um it's cool I like it (tries to figure out what makes him special enough to be tagged)
I managed to make a basic draken that cobras, but it does literally nothing else xD but it is quite fun to fly so might upload it
this was 2.5 years ago. come back mate we miss you
@WNP78 any place where we can make suggestions on the content of the beta updates? I feel like with the community testing it would appreciate an area to come up with ideas for QoL improvements that doesn't involve content for future updates - a page directly involved with beta testing, if you will?
'wont run on most devices'
Avg 2fps in designer... So I decided to try and load the level.
I had to re-install the map mod I was using because it completely broke jt
Also 69th upvote
the new german corsair has arrived
Holup those are German cannons
Did this actually exist?!
Also no one seems to realise that the .50 cal gun layout and rockets, and engine are all closer resembling a thunderbolt? He built a thunderbolt and called it a corsair
@Mickeymouse67 I just wanna point out that this has twice as many parts as your 172, and in 10 hours I managed to put 750 parts in a plane
could try a graphical mod - like a shader or something? advanced rendering was always buggy and has been broken for too long so that could be an idea? it could include advanced reflection rendering (including for the beacon light so people don't have to install a lights mod to access a build), and it could also bring together a couple of other mods such as your system time mod (toggleable in mod settings or something like that obviously) and a clouds mod, if you have already made one. It could also include advanced weather effects, graphical effects such as better explosion graphics (i believe you have already made this as a mod in the past?) and better tyre smoke and marks on things from wheel spin. i recognise that this is a pretty hefty mod to make, so i wouldn't expect you to even attempt it, but if i could make a mod this would be it. I would never be able to create it as my programming skills are way too basic and I don't have unity, so i come here.
i commend you if you actually take the time to read this
The first popular sheet of paper in simpleplanes - well done!
@Foxybill05 did i just get rick rolled....
you need to make the stinger a nuke
@JaeBeansS apparently he got temp banned
dunno why or if it is justified, but that is what I hear happened
shader is beautiful but for 2 things - it has a black screen when paused or camera disabled, and the sky is pink. Is there a fix for this? @mushr0om
EDIT: only happens when custom camera is enabled in settings
@JediWolf oh... i think we've found the reason the servers where i am went down a couple of days ago...
Remove drag physics as that really helps, also disable collisions if there are loads of moving parts as collisions are very laggy
I name this the 'democracy 100'
Look at its face it looks so happy
@09thiccfish that was the longest sentence I've ever read
engine between the vtail?
I feel the same, but watching tutorials has taught me to be creative - use whatever you can get your hands on. Little details make a big difference. be picky.
Also, download some advanced builds and explore them to see what tricks they use, but be prepared to spend at least 5 hours making some really advanced projects.
Obviously I am nowhere near the standard you expected an answer from, but these are some of the things I use to help myself improve.
If you are using mobile, some of the bigger builds might be very laggy, so beware...
just to note: this thing will break the game, potentially corrupting files, so be careful with it and use it at your own risk
@AndrePlaysSP welp I tried
I'm still too poor xD
looks brilliant! also... might I recognise that gunsight maybe??? (totally not a hint)
It do be big though
Cake force one
@EngineerOtaku the bk5 was put in place while the lighter version of the mk 214 (the 214a) was being developed... and although recoil is present I don't think recoil would have been much of a problem because a pilot would only fire off one shot at a time.
So I don't think the cannon itself was a concern.
I built it off the 214 because this is supposed to be based on the production version.
Thanks so much for the praise, and go for it!
@MufazzalPasha tbf your plane was the main one I was trying to beat... I'm honestly not sure I did
someone tag a mod
@Aldriech and it only took 7 hours
It's a c-76. It's the ugliest plane I ever did saw
2: depends... I just make things and they turn out however they turn out. Don't feel pressured to lower part count for the community.
3: designer takes less processing power than in game. It will. Get windows and you can have more flexibility over what you can do to your system.
Happy day of birth
