MAK - 21 Starglider light interceptor

1,984 FlyingPotato_131  one year ago

The MAK – 21 Starglider was originally created as an experimental aircraft for testing the confined energy field repulsion system on aircraft. The result was astonishing – since the energy field acts not only like a wing at any speed, allowing VTOL, it also provides thrust while being extremely lightweight. This makes the aircraft surprisingly agile, no matter how fast you are going.
This particular modification is built as a fighter/interceptor. It has 2 neutron cannons as its main weapon, as well as 2 proton missiles for taking out anything too small to shoot at. The unusual flight dynamics at high speeds as well as the ability to stop in midair make it extremely hard to shoot down. A squadron of Stargliders is capable of taking out almost any target and the enemy won’t even know what hit them.
Not only is the Starglider a fast and nimble interceptor, its VTOL abilities allow it to function as a gunship, as it can hover in any orientation you want. It makes the plane a lot easier to land just about anywhere.
Features:
Flies at any speed lower than its max speed (literally, even 2 km/h)
Landing mode with WASD for moving, QE for yaw, VTOL for up/down and throttle for landing on moving targets
Confined energy field wings! (actually glass with -1000 opacity, don’t open the part properties or it will break)
Takes out the fleet with guns only
Instruments: (all of them work, even the artificial horizon)

AG1 turn on main engines (+ main lights)
AG2 Landing mode (gyro + alternate controls, read above) (+ landing lights)
AG6 proton missiles (yes I forgot to rename them)
AG7 open canopy (try it out, it looks awesome)
UPD: it is fairly hard to take down the brown pearl with the neutron cannons, for those who know what that is
UPD2: the wing breaks on android and ios

    @LordGardevoirX thank some random guy who made a post with features like that!

    @FlyingPotato_131 May I have permission to use the flight model of this in one of my own physics-defying creation?
    I'll credit you when I manage to finish and post it

    Amazing, I love how the wings have an emission effect via extreme negative opacity value...

    @Hellosss38 Idk how the -1000 opacity thing works on ios, it breaks on Android, may as well break on ios. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I probably can't help you

    @Hellosss38 the light around you, you can just set the time to night or just look at the ground through it

    Wdym with ambient light?

    @Hellosss38 turn the ambient light down (it's almost invisible against things like clouds)

    That’s weird I can’t see the blue circles on the wings?

    Ah I see, I just doubt it at first, hope you don't mind.

    @scratch yeah, it took me a few days just to figure the trigonometry out XD it does work weirdly at low tickrate though, but that's just how the game works

    @GuyFolk l made the codes myself, there is a chance that they are similar though

    lol now you have a physic bending rival.

    @GuyFolk (lol thanks thats a massive compliment for me)
    Im 99 percent sure they came up the physics messer code themselves.
    To the creator of this btw: This is really cool only thing I notice kindais weird is the shaking motion in low physics.

    Is this @scratch's levitation system?
    He is the only one I know that can f*ck physics like this.
