My Record for Going the Distance

156k spefyjerbf  3.2 years ago

I'll be honest - I haven't been playing much SP lately. My reasons are personal, but I have been working on an interesting build that is very fuel efficient.

It uses a special engine configuration to function exactly like a normal engine, but uses 99.9% less fuel in flight.

Yep. over 150 miles without any fuelless propulsion systems. No guns, pistons, or detachers. Only jets. If you want to know how it works, you will find out later, but you can look at the nacelles for a clue....

I'll talk about the style change later.

    My personal furthest for Going the distance is 1,000,000 Ft, by using a custom engine using rotators, if you want me to upload it i will

    @randomusername Actually, the in-game rule judged that air cannot pass through rotators, pistons, wings, and detachers - i.e. It shouldn't matter if the engines have their own sets of inlets.

    @randomusername The inputcontroller should be edited on the VTOL engine. The nozzles should turn with throttle to allow you to have different amounts of thrust with different percentages of throttle.

    @randomusername Don't use engines on rotators. Use VTOL nozzles that rotate on throttle input!

    @ThomasRoderick Yes!

    @spefyjerbf Making the engines pointing at each other at first with rotators/VTOL ports to cancel out the thrust at the beginning, and make all the thrust to full use at full throttle?

    @ThomasRoderick Yes, but that trick only allows for one level of throttle. Any percent of throttle is seen as 100% by the inputconroller. This engine configuration, which I will reveal in a few days, fixes that problem.

    that max="0.001", enginePowerMultiplier="1000" trick, I assume?

    @randomusername The tank is unedited. I did some editing on the engines though. I'll reveal my methods later. As for your record, it can also be accomplished by using some modded detachers, given that the airframe is strong enough to withstand that kind of force...

    @chancey21 Yep, but that's too easy. It also is less user-friendly and more clunky part-wise than this kind of engine configuration.

    Mine and sexylips35’s have many planes that can go on infinitely without fuel

    You can do infinitely with an entry from a no fuel challenge

    @ShatSlanger @Ephwurd Thanks. I was going for something a little more rugged.

    I like that new style. It looks like it's more geared towards harsher conditions
