While searching on this site I came upon this https://www.simpleplanes.com/a/J6SXff/Cluster-Bomb-mod, and the idea of having fuselages as bombs came as a good idea in my brain. Unfortunately the mod is now gone, so I decided to create my own version. You can make your own bombs and missiles with this, or just have some wacky fun with all 8 bomb fuselage sizes!
- Dud Fuselage (for use in predictive aim weapons with different arms)
- Boom 5 Fuselage
- Boom 25 Fuselage
- Boom 50 Fuselage
- Boom 100 Fuselage^
- Boom 250 Fuselage^
- Boom 500 Fuselage*^
- Boom 1000 Fuselage*^
- Nuclear Fuselage*
Mass should be double a normal fuselage for all of them. Somehow some of the explosions in their initial states look like a mushroom cloud on accident. Cool!
BUG NOTE*: The largest size that seems to work easily is the Boom 250 explosive fuselage. After that, the bombs have a dud rate, which seems to be avoidable by making the bomb fuselages hit the ground slowly. Thus, the Boom 500 Fuselage needs to impact slow, the Boom 1000 Fuselage slower, and the Nuclear Fuselage very slowly.
CRASH NOTE^: Speaking of the Boom 1000 Fuselage and Nuclear Fuselage, the Boom 1000 crashed my gaming desktop and forced a restart. *Be careful and only deploy the weapons you believe your device can run. * Although, most of the times the Boom 1000 Fuselage and Nuclear will not explode, because, as stated, they need to impact very slowly in order to trigger the explosion. If you don't look at the explosion, the game usually runs fine; this is unless the explosion particle is so big it reaches you.
Ideas of what you can do with this:
- Super/Hypersonic warheads and weapons
- Kamikaze aircraft such as the Ohka
- Irregular Warhead Sizes (Not limited to 250lb or 500lb)
- Make missions easier with Boom 100/250 fuselages
- Mess around with nukes, Boom 500, and Boom 1000 super bombs
- Cluster bomb!
