1,497 DeepFriedIndustries  2.6 years ago

Ok, so basically: I was bored. Then I thought: I could upload a plane! Thinking again a realised that simpleplanes is almost dead right now. This is the result of my boredom.

What is a tri/biplane?

A biplane or biplane is an airplane with two superimposed wings, one of which is attached to the bottom and one to the top of the fuselage.(that was google translate so i hope it works)

The challenge is simple:

Build a biplane
-Must be a biplane
-no xml modding that makes it fly better, such as weight, engine etc. modding
-no mod parts
-you can get extra points if you add some sort of gadgets, like pop up guns(don't take that litterally)
-No rockets or missiles, only guns. (to be precise: not the minigun)
-Must be a succesor
-You can't use already built aircraft
-Max part count: 400 parts
-BTW: Triplanes are allowed


-Handling: 1-10 pts
-How well it is in combatting AI: 1-10 pts
-Looks (like no flying bricks): 1-10 pts


Respect, since it takes very long to upvote a lot of builds.

End of challenge: August 25th, the results will be on [this] document
