  • What annoys you the most about the SP website? 1.8 years ago

    Soo... what bugs me the most...?
    Well, we recently got new and improved moderator options that let us write better mod notes (strikes, lists of alts, etc), do custom ban lengths, edit tags more easily, so that's one nuisance out of the way. Community is pretty calm these days, latest drama being that minor incident about a certain user not wanting their builds edited, so that's fine too. The biggest annoyance remaining is having to ban underaged users. Some of them are really good at the game, really nice, but terms of service are clear on the matter.

    I suggest a glowing block. It would be a plain cube that accepts no reflection, as a stopgap feature until we get more dedicated lighting parts in the future. We can scale it to desired shapes and sizes.

  • SIMPLE PLANES .... What went wrong? 1.9 years ago

    Indeed, when I first played SimplePlanes, an eternity ago, there weren't fuselage blocks, wheels, and good-looking engines. It was long before I made an account. Hypnotoad was all the rage with his weird creations made out of wings. All you could make were simple planes, things looking a bit like balsa wood models. When I came back to this game a year or two later, there were fuselage blocks, allowing users to build some great stuff. There were even rotators, bulky old bricks that can rotate a part in game. There was another thing that surprised me: buoyancy. We could make ships now.
    As the time went by, we got a wheel we can use with car engine, allowing us to build ground vehicles, we got inlets that allowed us to make more complex planes, weapons, we got smaller, handier rotators, holow blocks, and lately helicopter rotor and a cannon. This game is nothing like the simple physics simulation Andrew created so many years ago with a small group of amateur programmers. Even the dev team grew, both in numbers and experience and skill. Hopefully, this game will evolve even further.

  • Q&A with EternalDarkness one year ago

    @Learpot it's outdated. It needs new ranks, as there's nothing left to motivate users who have passed twenty five thousand points. Next possible goal could be getting into top ten, but that means accumulating eight times the points you have, and many people don't see it as a reasonable thing to work towards.

  • Let's Play Taboo! 1.8 years ago

    It is a craft traversing the air, propelled by an internal combustion aggregate, sustaining itself in the air via aerodynamic forces from its airfoils. Airfoil is a sideways-protruding, wide and thin part that converts airflow into lift. Usually, there are two, one on each side, and two smaller ones protruding sideways at the rear that stabilize the craft and provide attitude control. Passengers and operator are housed in the hull, in the middle of the craft.

  • Unpopular opinion: replica builds are the worst builds on this site one year ago

    I don't understan why you have such aversion to replica builds that you have chosen to devote an entire post to them. You must understand that replica builds require a great deal of skill and patience to make, and that many people enjoy flying their favorite real planes in this game. Shaming people for harmlessly likeing what they like makes you seem like a very bitter person.

  • Life of an unpopular Builder 1.7 years ago

    Maybe start making your builds more complex. Things like custom airfoil and custom landing gear can go a long way. Also, work on your thumbnails. A thumbnail presents the build and attracts attention. Thirdly, you should interact more. Maybe join some Discord servers. You can find the most popular one in my bio, Builders chat.

  • 1.8 Beta now available 2.8 years ago

    I have a tiny little complaint: Tail rotors have way too much stick separating them from the fuselage. It prevents making of designs that have tail rotor closer to the fuselage and completely prevents us from making a fenestron. If we want it further from the fuselage, we'll just use a fuselage block there. Could you please shorten it?

    Did you know that you can now post unlisted to write a description and even tag moderator to make the post a successor to the challenge, and then publish it? No need to post twice. Also, I assume this is a teaser for a bigger build, so I'll save my upvote for that one. Nice machine gun though.

  • A Goodbye Long Overdue 1.8 years ago

    If you ever change your mind, your place in SimplePlanes Masters is still waiting for you. As for your estrangement to your techniques, that might even be a good thing, as with all the new stuff we got since you left, those techniques are well obsolete. There's a lot of fun to be had experimenting with new parts and inputs.

  • J-8 2.3 years ago

    While this is a nice looking plane and is much better than what I was making when I had 2000 points, it has many flaws. I'll state a few below with instructions on how to avoid them on your future builds. I hope you'll find them useful.

    • Ailerons should be on the outboard section of the wing, entire inner trailing edge should be flaps (area that is now divided into flaps and ailerons).

    • You have too much power. No plane can reach mach 2 at sea level. It should be able to barely maintain its stated maximum speed at its optimal flight altitude (around 8km). Also, acceleration is too quick due to too much power. To fix all these issues, reduce drag to between 3000 and 5000 points via "calculateDrag = false" input in Overload mod and reduce engine power to get appropriate speed and acceleration.

    • There is no trim. Trim is necessary for maintaining attitude throughout flight regimes. You can have trim with custom control surfaces by adding another set of rotators to elevators. Reduce "min" and "max" values in "input" tab in Overload mod to get lower angle of deflection.

    • It's difficult to hit anything with missiles, as they take too long to lock and targeting circles are small, especially with "interceptor". You can edit (add lines) "lockTime" and "maxTargetingAngle" to "missile" tab in Overload to edit the performance of the missile. You can also use "maxRange", "maxSpeed", and a few other inputs.

    • Roll rate is very low for a fighter. It should roll better. Putting ailerons closer to wingtips where they should be should fix that, but you can also add a third set of rotators to the tail and have the horizontal stabilizers participate in the roll too.

  • How does one become a moderator (mod)? 2.5 years ago

    @Megamonster you need to tag a user so they get notified about your reply, like I did at the start of this comment. It is not necessary if you are commenting on their post though.
    To become a moderator, you must be knowledgeable about the community, spending a lot of time here. You must also be on good terms with most of the community. Oh, and you must be over 16 years old. If you fulfill those requirements, you stand a chance of being picked for a moderator among over a thousand such users when we need another moderator, which is once in a blue moon. Developers pick a new moderator, often based on recommendations from old moderators.
    Also, don't think that being a moderator is much of a privilege. We do get certain additional options, but we have to use them unbiased and in accordance with guidelines and rules, not for fun. Only real plus side is the red badge.

  • How to make custom missile? 4.4 years ago

    First, make a custom body for a missile. After that, place a detacher. Put a cockpit on a smaller end, and a missile you want to use for propulsion on a bigger end. Place fuselage body you have made on a rear, flat side of the detacher. Remove mass from the body. Nudge everything together, remove the cockpit, and leave detacher sticking out. Attach the missile to a plane by that detacher. It fires with a lock-on, like the stock missile you are using inside it.
