  • There’s this WW2 story that really happened... 2.1 years ago

    From down below an enemy spotted
    So hurry up rearm and refuel
    But through the bomber's damaged airframe
    See wounded men scared to the bone


    Look to the right and then look again
    And see the enemy in the eye
    No bullets fly spared by his mercy
    Escorted out
    Out of harms way


    Fly, fighting fair
    It's the code of the air
    Brothers, Heroes, Foes


    Killing machine
    Honour in the sky
    B-17 flying home
    Killing machine
    Said goodbye to the cross he deserved


    He risked his life two times that day
    To save an unknown enemy
    Escort to safety out of the kill zone
    A short salute then departed


    Fly, fighting fair
    It's the code of the air
    Brothers, Heroes, Foes


    Killing machine
    Honour in the sky
    B-17 flying home
    Killing machine
    Said goodbye to the cross he deserved


    Fly, fighting fair
    It's the code of the air
    Brothers, Heroes, Foes


    Killing machine
    Honour in the sky
    B-17 flying home
    Killing machine
    Said goodbye to the cross he deserved

  • So I just re-read the rules. 2.1 years ago

    We allow a wide variety of uploads that are not actually airplanes. However, we do reserve the right to remove posts if they are too far off-topic” I get this is for builds, but to an extent that section can be applied to the forums as well

  • Is Featured Function broken? [Please MOD help!] 3.1 years ago

    My understanding of the featuring system is that a mod or dev sees a post that they like, and have the ability to feature it. There is no specific automatic requirement for featuring, except that the mod or dev likes the post. This means that a build that has five upvotes, a build that is three years old or a build with only two parts have the same chance of being featured, the only difference being whether or not a mod or dev think it should be featured

  • Don’t you just love it when... [Bug] [Suggestion] 2.2 years ago

    An xml input for fuelBurn or useOldFuelBurn would be useful, as then it keeps older builds more realistic/less broken (like the kitfox then having an endurance of ~20hrs, 8x the irl endurance)

  • How should i make a seaplane recovery system on my corvette? 2.3 years ago

    if you use a magnet on a winch on a crane (like Feanor's Heavy Lift Ship-1989), and make it pick up the aircraft by the top of the fuselage (examples: 1 2 3), that should be able to recover it. another magnet on the seaplane's hull will allow it to attach to the ship to avoid slipping.

  • Best Plane Movie? 3.1 years ago

    Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. A Stanley Kubrick black comedy about an insane general who scrambled his Air wing of B-52s, the crew of one of these bombers, and the us president and other generals trying to stop the bombers. It has some great lines, such as “Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here, this is the war room!”

  • English Electric Canberra B1 (8.2) 1.5 years ago

    I think this is more of a B.5 Upwards rather than a B.1, as the b.1 has the dome canopy, and the mk.5 was the first variant with the offset fighter canopy

  • Looking for Peer Reviewers - Kinematics & Trigonometry Competence Required 1.7 years ago

    @SnoWFLakE0s The Lead Angle calculation method is correct, as i have done almost exactly the same thing, although in the context of intercepting a ship with another ship. The Target Velocity calculation looks like it works, although only if the ship is travelling parallel to the target. It may be possible to add a "Delta-Range" function to determine the perpendicular factor as well, although i understand that it may complicate input, operation and programming.
    Apart from that, however, the system looks as though it will work effectively as it stands currently.

  • I need help with my electric [mechanical] engines. Edit: Solved it myself. kek 1.9 years ago

    @randomusername @jamesPLANESii I think the top speed differences are due to the differing reduction rates of the forces, the engines reducing thrust slower than the drag reduces. As the propulsion is drag-based, the rates of reduction for thrust and drag would be identical, leading to this issue. To solve it, the engine drag has to reduce slower than the airframe drag, although i don't know how that would be done.

  • [Issue] Unable to download stuff from SP Website 2.6 years ago

    I think it may be an issue unrelated to the beta, as multiple users, myself included, are unable to download or upload builds on Mac. I am using SP 1.7, and although I did change to the beta twice I was able to download builds until a few days ago, which was around when the website had a certificate issue, which may or may not be the problem @Minecraftpoweer

  • The Lamest Beta Ever 2.6 years ago

    @NathanMikeska also I think part explosions may be broken as I ran an aircraft's wing into a bridge and it sheared off. following that, the aircraft ran into the ground and disintegrated, without explosions. This was done with mods enabled, as it was after I had re-enabled them.

  • The Lamest Beta Ever 2.6 years ago

    On MacOS the frame rate has taken a hit, as the same 125-part aircraft has gone from running at around 30fps to around 7fps. Mods, graphics settings, and AI traffic are the same with both
