Wiki

TIE fighters are fictional starfighters existing in the Star Wars universe.
Propelled by Twin Ion Engines, TIE fighters are fast, agile, yet fragile starfighters produced by Sienar Fleet Systems for the Galactic Empire.

Features

  • Cockpit View
  • Vertical take off and landing system
  • pretty much accurate performance
  • Blaster bolts have accurate speed 1200 m/s (dont remember source)
  • Low part count
  • Almost accurate scale (its a tiny bit smaller)
  • semi accurate sound (?) (used the engine which makes a similar sound to the actual one)
  • matching max atmospheric speed

Controls

  • Ag-1+Retract gear to take off, extend gear to land
  • Ag-2 speedbrake use at speeds below 600kph

Take off
To take off press 1 and retract gear, once you reach a favourable altitude then throttle up until you reach 200 kph. Then deactivate AG-1

Landing
To land first activate AG-1 then decelarate to 100-200 kph and press 2 to come at near complete stop. Once you've stoped then Extend gear to land. Lower your speed the faster you descend so keep your speed very low when landing

known issues:
i know the cockpit aint the best.
i couldnt make perfect radial thirds for the canopy window.
never managed to make a working access hatch.

constructive criticism is welcome

the blue trail at engine exhaust nozzle is intentional since its supposed to look like the ionised air that propells the craft.

    @Doges usually you press 1 and then you retract gear. Dont worry it will climb on its own

    Man, I absolutely love this build!
    I'm fascinated by the airbrake feature. Is that done with gyros? How??
    I love how you miniaturized and hid all the stuff that actually make it fly and achieved such a neat look.
    Good job also on the guns. Those are very convincing green lasers!

    @toxicgamer88 here's what I found (off the internet): The TIE bomber was capable of carrying at least one of the following payloads, for a total of 15 metric tons: sixteen concussion missiles, twelve proton torpedoes, eight proton rockets, six space mines, four proton bombs, sixty-four thermal detonators, thousands of propaganda pamphlets, or supply canisters.

    @toxicgamer88 it has proton torpedoes, just because movies show only the Rebels using it does not mean the Empire uses them too, no offence.
