A simple suggestion for a simple game.

Please add an airflow view. This would show airflow over the surface of the plane. It would be great for finding stall speed and max AoA. It would also look really cool while doing PSM or pulling high Gs. Please add this!

    I like this idea!
    It will greatly help builders to determine if the fuselage is good and acts as they want it to. I've had the idea for air tunnel project for my cars from long ago, but there is no way to simulate the "airflow view" over the chassis itself.

    That simple thing will be enough to create amazing stuff in the future!

    There should be like an island where you can travel to and if you enter one of the buildings then you can test your plane out. Like an air tunnel

    @jamesPLANESii @BeastHunter Then there's like all the advanced builders who just have a single part with calculateDrag true, the rest are false. To improve performance.

    @X99STRIKER Probably still more aerodynamic than a Jeep Wrangler.

    I think we also need like a air test where it shows how air will go over/under/through as a test that would be amazing

    @jamesPLANESii They don’t have to program complicated airflow, they just to pretend it’s there.

    The drag model in SP is basic af. It will be very underwhelming lol

    That would a pretty cool addition.
