    @pavthepilot I definitely want my own gravatar, but I only use one email address,and I used it for a previous simplanes account, which i deleted a few years ago and for some reason I was unable to use that same email address for this account, I wonder it's a fixable?

    @pavthepilot I have deleted the bonacy mod, it's seemed to have fixed the issue. 👌🏻

    Also maybe you should try reinstalling sp or deleting the buyoancy mod or asking gestour for help, there has to be a way to fix your problem

    Thank you for your upvotes @pavthepilot, I'm glad you like my creations, I like making replicas that other players can use I'll be trying to make as best as possible, a nice functional creations. I haven't played in a while because GESTOR's bouncy mod broke my simpleplanes but when my SP is up and running I'll be at it again, I have loads of ideas for what I'd like to make...🤔👍

    @AchuTMM yes you're right, I'll pass on the new phone idea. To Keep planes smooth, I won't put a bunch of rubbish on them. And, if a replica, will only have the details that it needs.😁

    @AchuTMM Im thinking of getting SP for when I get a PC in the new year. Yeah in kind of want to Make more sophisticated stuff, but my relatively low ram, means I'm limited to how much I CAN build, and of course I consider how choppy it is, otherwise someone qho downloads one of my designs, will struggle with frame rate, and so I try to minimize but also optimize at the same time. So when someone downloads it, it's smooth and clear, depending on one's graphics settings.
    In the meantime, a better phone is definitely on the cards.🤓

    Thank you @Trainzo, my phone really struggled with this one. It's quite big for 2.00 GBs. It crashed my game a few times. :>

    The Spruce goose is the biggest flying boat ever built, and had the largest wingspan of any airplane EVER built. If there are any problems with the plane please feel free to let me know.👍
