Faye's Red Tail (pre v1.11)

55.1k Freerider2142  2.6 years ago


(more explanation at the bottom)


This is my try at a 1:1 replica of Faye Valentine's Red Tail from the anime Cowboy bebop.
one of my favorite shows, and one of my favorite ship designs.
it controls like a bike, and I tried giving it the same capabilities like in the show..
(in earth's atmosphere)

She's twitchy, but pretty stable in forward flight, and pretty easy to hover with tapping and Gyro on.

AG-1 = Engines and hud on/off
AG-2 = Left side hatch
AG-3 = Right side hatch
AG-4 = Eject monopod - WARNING! Do not eject on the ground!!!
AG-7 = Revolvers open/close
AG-8 = Gyro on/off

Landing gear will only work with Gyro on.
Weapons will arm when landing gear is up.

VTOL and Trim have reversed controls for thrust direction
shown on the left side of the hud

known issues:
-Flickering glass due to inner reflection.
Version without inner glass HERE

Escape pod flies like crap...
I know, never got to fixing it, stay at low speeds in pod...

for low part version with a lot of features removed:
Link Here

Special features:
-Custom missiles that can work underwater
-Custom bullet chain guides
-Custom Yaw and Roll "Eye" thrusters
-Custom cockpit with diagrams for AG indications, compass, Hud and more

-It can go underwater using the Ocean MOD by Gestour

I made this before the update, and I basically need to redo A LOT to cut down on part count, using new options and parts from the 1.11 update.
unfortunately I just don't have the time top work on stuff due to IRL stuff..
and I just don't know when or if I'll ever update it.
so I'm uploading this as is.

Things to do on the final version:
-Redesign cockpit elements
-Redesign body with cutting tool
-Add Full VR support

Special thanks to @MisterT and @Spikerya

as with all of my builds, feel free to use whatever you want from this :)

    @Charris969 still not sure or finished with a lot of things on the Orca III...
    I'm getting help setting it up for VR controls as well, and there's a lot that's not finished.
