———————First and foremost———————

RETROFITTED_VERSION

I am in the process of ‘retrofitting’ my builds, this will hopefully sort out the auto roll and bring my other builds up to date. 

I wanted to make this as low parts as I could whilst still having functionality in the build.

I hope you enjoy :)

AI version (163 parts) - Pilot bails out when downed.
(quite proud of the AI bailout feature)

Kamikaze version (178 parts)

US Captured version (177 parts)

I modelled this as accurate to the real thing as I could...
...looks like I have some retrofitting to do lol
————————Controls——————————
AG1
Jettison external fuel tank. (87 gallons)

AG3
Activate cannons - much have AG7 activated too.

AG4
Override wing tips to the down position.

AG5
Lower arresting hook. (55 degrees)

AG6
Bailout (bailout above 425ft AGL and IAS < 356mph), parachute opens ~ 0.5 seconds later).

AG7
Aim guns (looks through sights + activates nose MGs).

AG8
Lock tail wheel rotation/turning.

VTOL (down)
Flaps control.

VTOL (up - past the first notch)
Activate War Emergency Power (WEP)

yes, this aircraft has WEP :)

(Normal controls; roll = roll, etc.)


For the best take off I find 30% throttle and full flaps down the most ‘cinematic’...

(For realistic ~>90m take off do 100% Throttle + 75% Flaps + Full Nose-up)

Landings I do ~8% throttle, full flaps down and try to keep the nose just - and I mean very slightly - above level flight.

—————————Notes———————————

There are two red cockpit indication lights;

Left - Min altitude for bailout...
(light on + bail = Bye Bye Sky Samurai)
I made it so the pilot cannot bailout if the light is on.

Right - Activates when below 10% fuel.

/

When firing the guns the cockpit will shake to simulate recoil/vibrations from the weapons.

The guns themselves have realistic fire rates as well as impact forces and custom damage - calcs are bellow...


damage =

(weapon caliber)*3

impactForce =

[(weapon caliber)*(muzzle vel)] /400


  • these are in no way realistic relative to the game, only a personal standard I hope to have in all my current and future builds.

/

Cockpit POV moves relative to force of manoeuvre (hopefully like on sim games)

/

Sluggishness at high speeds are modelled on the Pitch and Roll control surfaces. (Activation @ ~370mph)

By far my most complicated build in terms of getting the features right, I hope you enjoy! :)

Wow, that makes 3 of 3 on the front page! Honestly didn’t think any of my builds     would get there.

Thank you to all who looked at, upvoted  and spotlighted my builds!

    Really nicely done, idk if you know this but the auto roll is a drag issue from one of the components in the wing, it translated to more drag on one side then the other

    @Alex9000 Thank you - still - I really want to fix the auto roll.
    .
    I have already retrofitted some FT code for an automatic combat flaps setting at above takeoff speeds and fixed the gun recoil in the refit I am doing.
    .
    Glad you like it and hopefully the refits shouldn’t be too much longer, then I will get back to new builds :)

    @rexrexThezion Do you know much about the new Targeting expressions?? If so do you have discord? I’d love to send you what I need it to be like - if that’s okay with you of course!
    .
    I’d love a little guidance/help understanding FT a little more as I’m all for learning from others and then using that to make the line of code :)

    @rexrexThezion I have quite a few listed on my bio under each country but I’m holding off until I have my FT code and skill right.
    I do not want to make an ‘incomplete’ build or redact any features.
    .
    This is the reason I haven’t done some of my all time favourite attack/torpedo/bomber aircraft yet is because stuff like the defensive gunner(s) and other flight characteristics are things that I want to get extra special for my builds.
    .
    I also like to try to make my AI special (like with a bail out feature, etc) and I know exactly how I want them to work but I don’t have the necessary FT skill to put it off...
    ...yet...
    .
    I was considering putting out a call for some FT skilled people to help me and this has made me lean more towards that option...
    .
    I’m really happy you like my builds enough to suggest stuff like bombers - believe me, I hope they will come very soon! :)

    the plane despite having low parts count (which is a good thing) is very well detailed in terms of the parts being well fitted, and has many features of cool funky trees but Certainly the automatic scrolling is very bad and gets in the way when it's low altitude, the automatic scrolling makes me hit the ground or sink into the water, I think it would be better without

    @Anthony747800 I’ll definitely add it to the pipeline, working on fixing the builds I have but then it’s on with the list! Thanks for the suggestion!

    @SodiumChloride My CoM and CoL didn’t appear to be out of line when I was building it but I’ll double check so fair enough...
    .
    One more question - why should I not turn mass scale to zero on the resizable wheels? - just so I understand it is all
    .
    I really appreciate you mentioning all of this and for getting back to me, thanks for all you help :)
