Hi everyone,

After 12 days, my current project is mostly done. Technically speaking, this aircraft represents simple iterations on quite a few systems that I have devised (with some basic flight assists added). Therefore, a standard technical documentation of mine would be quite boring to write. Instead, I made some sort of user manual, that goes over some general flight tips that you may find useful. You can find this manual below:

For a full .pdf, you can use this google drive link

If you are insane, and want a gif of this manual, you can check my steam artwork page, here.

I’ll double this post as a teaser, too, so if you want to be tagged, type VIVIMOS in the comments!

    @ThomasRoderick I made em high-yield by design. Fun factor. But yeah, I think adding a trim gyro would have helped me a lot

    @spefyjerbf Yup, that's why trim is important... Same goes for real-life planes (hell, with lifting surfaces trim would be even worse with speed and lift and the like involved!). Also, those dumb-fire rockets are apparently nuclear-tipped for some reason...

    @ThomasRoderick Yeah, the code is definitely long. I started with a simple case for user input, then added an angular speed control, that combined with the sensitivity control. After a few extra debug cases, I added a few bandaids that made the code quite lengthy. While lengthy, I personally like my method as it lets me determine pitch/roll/yaw rates directly within my code. Of course I know more now, so a future iteration would be less spaghetti-like, so ty for the feedback!

    I’m sure you understand the pain that comes with balancing thrust, especially without any lifting surfaces. Ultimately this was the best I could get! Ty for the feedback tho

    The lore is good, the flight model... Let's just say that the sensitivity on the gyro-stabilizers should be linked to VTOL lever as the plane does not really have a neutral trim: the engines, both the atmospheric plasma drives and the orbital distortion drives have a tendency to pitch the craft up (the fact that the drive have a noticeable "pulse" doesn't help either). Also, as the coding on my own version of the system looks like "(YawRate * 25) - (Yaw * 625)", I'm pretty sure that even with sensitivity control(s) we don't need an entire paragraph's worth of codes...

    @spefyjerbf I know the problem with cats, worst is when your doing homework and they plop right on the keyboard.
    .
    I get that you like doing it, i guess it's just something that I really dont have time for, I mostly either, watch YouTube, play sp, talk here or on discord, or the rare case of me playing another game. I play this game to much.

    @Sm10684 Yep! The pdf itself was directly exported from PowerPoint. I also use Krita to greenscreen pictures of my builds.
