The SPW, with Awsomur [47]

September 11th, 2001:

any jokes about the 9/11 attacks, even if made in “good fun”, will result in a permanent block

Last week was the 18th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, better known as 9/11. I won’t recount all the details so if you don’t know of the event please read the article linked above.

On that day in 2001, the word witnessed the most shocking, most deadly, and most cowardly attack every executed by a terrorist organization. Four commercial airliners were hijacked and used to destroy the World Trade Center in New York City and damage the Pentagon (the U.S. defense HQ). A fourth plane, likely intended for the United States Capitol building, was stopped by the passengers heroic sacrifice and crashed into an open field.

2,996 innocent people lost their lives on that day.

On another note, I have observed in past years that many users do not give proper respect on that day. Many people use it as an excuse to start nationalistic arguments; some have even gone as far as to make fun of what happened or downplay its severity.

To my surprise, this year the forums were flooded with memorial posts and condolences from a wide variety of users. I was very pleased to see this date being showed the respect it deserves.

Never Forget

Now, please enjoy this issue of the SimplePlanes Weekly.

Review this edition of the SPW here


Greetings, young Jedi.

You guessed it: the SPW is back once again for the week. In this edition, the user spotlight has made its return, as have three very talented builders with their newest creations. Let’s just jump right into it!

===================================================

SimplePlanes News:

  • As you’ve probably seen, the SLRP server was deleted two weeks ago. MrVaultech has made a post that clears up why it was deleted and what he’s doing now. Please read it if you’re interested, as it pretty much sums everything up.

  • AlderSteiner is, gone, apparently. I don’t have anything else to say because his post doesn’t either.

  • BaconAircraft will be less active due to his acceptance into a real aerospace university. Read his post for more details. Spoiler: it’s all good news.

  • AWESOMENESS360 has joined the dark side and achieved platinum rank. On behalf of everyone, I say stargnoc to you!

====================================================

Teaser of the Week:


klm747klm747 (good lord that’s a mouthful) is building a pretty impressive looking airliner. Should be interesting to see what the exterior looks like, and of course, how it flies.

====================================================

Meme of the Week:


Gotta milk this format before it’s dead
oh whoops, it dead already

====================================================

Reviews:

Dassault Rafale M F3-R "La furieuse", by BoganBoganTheMan


Just the fact that it says “by BoganBoganTheMan” sums up the quality of this plane. It manages to stay realistic while also being fun to fly and fight with. The controls are simple but simulate all the functions you need. There is also a lower-part version, so this is a useful plane for both low-end devices and MP. My only complaint is that the landing gear doors must be closed manually, but it’s not a big deal at all. Overall, this is a fantastic plane.

4/5

2019 Lykins Highway General Semi Truck, by Strikefigher04


Cause we got a mighty convoy
Rockin' through the night.
Yeah we got a mighty convoy,
Ain't she a beautiful sight?
Come on and join our convoy
Ain't nothin' gonna get in our way.
We gonna roll this truckin' convoy
'Cross the U-S-A.

Songs aside, this is probably the best semi on the site. Shape is great, livery is really nice, and good detailing on the trailer. It also has a realistic speed and interior, which makes you feel very powerful while driving it.

5/5

CRV-X7, by inocone


Inocone claims that “this is normal jet fighter”, but this goes way beyond normal. It has an epic, futuristic design and livery, alongside a deadly arsenal and incredible speeds. When you step back and look at it, it is slightly overpowered, but who says all things need to be realistic? Really amazing work.

5/5

User Spotlight:


inocone
Inocone also takes home the user spotlight this week. They (presumably her) joined almost a year ago, but have not gotten the attention they deserve. They’ve uploaded three types of creations so far: jet fighters, super cars and “humanoid planes” much like the infamous GAMF girls. It’s obvious that English is not their first language, so communicating is not their strong suit. Regardless, please check out their other builds and if you like what you see, leave some support on their uploads.

====================================================

That’s all for this week’s edition of the SimplePlanes Weekly. Happy flying!

    @Minecraftpoweer I did too, and I wholeheartedly agree (I’ve been drawing for a couple years, and their skill surpasses mine nine times over)

    Thanks for the feedback! And sorry about the typos. Next time, you can put your feedback in the SPW Review form that I linked in the post.

    Once again, fantastic work! I’ll be a bit of a critic for this comment, so here’s some praise:
    - I wholeheartedly agree with spotlighting inocone. They make fantastic builds for a silver builder (I even look up to them, because we both have similar build styles of drawing first, building after).
    - The crafts you reviewed are all great crafts in their own regards, and it seems that all of them are mobile friendly!
    .
    Now for a bit of criticism:
    - In the 9/11 section, you accidentally put “every” instead of “ever”. That’s a pretty easy fix.
    - Maybe put a capital A for “any” in the very beginning of the 9/11 section. Again, easy fix.
    .
    That’s all I could find. Keep up the awesome work, Awsomur!

    Are you able to make an unlisted post? I'm on a school laptop that doesn't have SimplePlanes.

    (Sigh) Is there anything I can do to convince you to let me make it a two-man-band?

    Oops, my bad. Had no idea you got gold. But please don’t insinuate I intentionally left you out.
    As for your question, the SPW is a one-man band.
