———————First and foremost———————

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. - REFIT PENDING UPLOAD

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

I hope you enjoy :)

AI version and an alternate paint scheme version

Supermarine_Spitfire_ mk.ia to go with.

————————Controls——————————

AG6
Bailout (parachute opens @ 500ft AGL).

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

AG8
Lock tail wheel rotation/turning.

VTOL
Flaps control.

(Normal controls; roll = roll, etc.)

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

Landings I do ~11-12% throttle, full flaps down and just monitor pitch up to 10 degrees.

—————————Notes———————————

There are two red indication lights;

Left - Min altitude for bailout...
(light on + bail = Intimate time with the tail section)

Right - Activates when below 10% fuel.

  • for those interested, the code for the bailout is as follows;

(AltitudeAgl < 152.4) + Activate6

/

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

The guns themselves also have impact forces and custom damage which I decided with the calcs bellow...

gun damage =

(weapon caliber)*3

gun impact F =

[(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 future builds.

/

When in the cockpit view you will react to the forces on the pilot; i.e. when pitching up your vision will lower relative to the plane.

I did this by altering the mass of the pilot and cockpit parts and connected them to the aiming and shooting pistons so the physics take care of it for me.

This means I can get the effect relative to the speed without any fancy code or mechanism other that just the physics of the game :)

I kinda wanted it to feel like it looks in the IL2 games so if possible let me know if I achieved that or not because I’ve only ever watched vids on the game :/

/

Tail wheel rotation allows you to do donuts in the plane (if you’re that way inclined)

  • p.s. Glad people seem to like it, honestly surprised it made it to the front page :D

Achtung!! An aircraft has been spotted approaching on the horizon...

    @AzureCorp I have a couple of other planes in the list I wanted to do because I’ve been pretty much going “wish I had that plane to fly” and then building it lol
    /
    I might do it one day, if so I’ll definitely let you know! I’ll add it to the list of possibles :)
    /
    Thanks for the suggestion!

    also another suggestion: Westland Whirlwind or Westland Wyvern. (one of my favorite aircraft from ww2 lol)

    @KnightOfRen I might be tempted...
    /
    I was torn between a mustang and a zero believe it or not! I wanted to do one of them first and then to do the other tbh, but definitely those two.
    /
    I am working on a bit of Funky Trees stuff atm for something a little different than a fighter ;)
    /
    I really appreciate the suggestion though, hopefully the zero will be good enough for ya when it comes :)
    /
    The zero has always been a fav of mine, so thanks for the suggestion!

    @PolyIsGone No problem. I feel ya, mate. I'm in high school and I'm busy as heck. I've got 14 f*ckin' assignments each week. Pls excuse my French...
    But anyway, I'm glad you decided to think about it. Good luck to you too and happy building!
