Droplet

Special thanks to my friend Ian Yashima for the amazing screenshots.

In 2016 I made the very first Droplet in this game, which gained lots of wows and downloads.
old version droplet

Today, with brand new technologies, I present you the 2022 version of the legendary Droplet.

Info:

Droplet is an alien space probe from sci-fi novel The Three-Body Problem

The probe uses strong interaction force to bind atoms extremly tightly, forming an indestructible shell with absolute smoothness, and hence got the name "droplet".

Its advanced driving power, which human could not unterstand, can burst an incredible acceleration, and even make sharp angle turns without losing speed, against law of physics known by human.

In 2211, the first Droplet arrived solar system, and destroyed all 2000 starships of human space fleet, letting human really see the gap between ants and elephants.


Features:

  • Extrem high speed and maneuverability
  • Auto target chasing and striking ability
  • Absolute smoothness crafted with ultra high precision, not a single ridge or gap can be found on its shell
  • Immune to crash and gun attack (but not explosive weapons)
  • Improved manual control logic
  • Terrain auto-adapting ability
  • Capability to fly at all attitude and velocity.

No gyroscope nor rotators used, all rotation and movements are driven by 10 fixed jet engines, which run under FT codes.

While it is immune to crash damage, it is still vulnerable against explosive weapons, including the ones ignited by crashing, meaning the target you select is better without missiles and bombs.


Make sure to set Aircraft Reflections to Realtime for optimal visual effect.


Control:

Auto Mode:
AG1: target chasing
AG2: target striking (use with AG1 on)
(Not very ideal against surface targets like ships or cars due to terrain protect)

Manual Mode:
Throttle: speed
Pitch: pitch
Roll: steering
FireGuns: faster turn
AG3: surface mode
AG4: ultra speed

Here is an alternative version for AI that smashes everything it sees


There might be further updates if bugs are found

    The video took me quite some efforts to make, and it's absolutely worth watching.

    Oh BOY!
    Now this is one helluva probe, huh?
    I tried this against every overpowered plane I had in stock, and this thing absolutely decimated every plane!
    I am truly in awe!

    @RedRightHand you need to set the drag on the magnet to 0
    you can directly attach the magnet to the droplet which i found works best
    make sure the magnets partCollisionResponse is set to None

    Oh boy I do remember your first droplet, I thought it was absolutely amazing at the time. I just came back by curiosity (I haven't played the game in like 5-6 years) and I'm a bit disappointed in how much the game focuses on PC players, at the detriment of mobile players: most planes seem to be too big to be able to properly run on a mobile device. I still remember the very beginning of the game and how everything was running smoothly on mobile since the Steam edition didn't exist, so yeah it's nice to see nowadays a high quality build not using >500 parts.
