  • How does the point system work? 3.8 years ago

    You get bronze at 101 points.
    You get silver at 1001 points.
    You get gold at 5001 points.
    You get platinum at 25,0001 points/ 25.0k points.
    A spotlight sends puts the aircraft in the jetstream of your followers. But you must have more points than the creator of the craft that you are spotlighting.
    An upvote on a forum post is worth 2 points.
    An upvote on a craft post is worth 15 points.
    And an upvote on a mod is worth around 25 points, I think.

  • Pathetic Humans... 1.5 years ago

    I think it might be translated as such:
    you probably won't understand this. unless you are smart, and you go to a certain website... i have learned every thing i can about human society it's... interesting. you see you will never find us. just...give up. you will never find the wonders of gamma tech "science" won't help you now. if you want, you can explore space for years and years. you will never find an. information on new species. you humans only explored less than -% of your planet's ocean. so how do y0u expect to explore space? hm? you have no idea. you'll run around in circles. you will collect information but learn nothing. well, you probably have "determination" hah. go scream in a pillow and mourn your defeats. nothing can help you. unless a miracle happens

  • Help with ship hull building 2.5 years ago

    Number one:
    The bow (Bottom section) So, just take a fuselage block (bottom part curved top part hard edges) that's around 5 wide and 2 high for a ship that has a beam and draft of 25 meters and 10 meters respectively.
    Reduce the width of the front end by 0.25 and add another fuselage block in front.
    Reduce the width of the new fuselage block by 0.5 and add another and reduce it by 0.75, then add a new block and reduce by 1, 1.25, 1.5, 1.75 and so on until it reaches 0.

    Number two:
    Now, heres the hard part. Take a fuselage block and flip it such that the width goes length wise along the ship (Call it block B) and put it on the rearmost fuselage block making up the bow. use a triangle calculator like this to find out how long block B should be.
    Example:
    if the block making up the bottom part is 1.5 long and reduces its width by 0.25, you'd input 1.5 to AB 90 degrees to angle A and 0.125 to side C (basically, see how much the width reduction is and halve it)

    Therefore, block B should be 1.505 in width (remember that it has to be facing lengthwise and that the height of the block should controlling its width and length be controlling how tall it is.) and 4.764 degrees away from 0, 90,180,270 or 360 degrees.

    Now for hull flaring:

    Take another block B (Let's call it block B1). Put it on a fuselage block directly behind the bow where the width reduction is 0 AKA it has to go straight and cannot get wider or narrower.

    Increase the width of this block B1 such that the width on top is slightly more than the width at the bottom and mess around with the rise and run to make it lean forward. Afterwards use the rise and run on on the block Bs on the bow to fit in with the Block B1.
    Here is an example of what the bow should look like at the end Anyone can use it.

    Now for the stern. just take instructions number one with a few minor adjustments.
    First off, you don't want it to go down to 0, but rather 1 or some value that's above 0.
    Secondly, reduce the height of the blocks halfway down the stern such that it reaches a a height of 0 at the very back.

    As for the blocks above the waterline, just follow what is being done below the waterline, except with no height reductions. But put a block at the very back and reduce give it a rounded bottom.

  • How to turn a ship? 3.3 years ago

    Well, you could either increase the propeller horsepower to 500,000 and add more of them if you still aren't fast enough. OR you could use xlml modded jet engines, but these will probably prevent you from reversing. @Spacedoge12345plane

  • Im running into an unavoidable problem 1.6 years ago

    You can add "damperMultiplier" to <JointRotator.State so it looks like <JointRotator.State range="30" speed="0.3" damperMultiplier="100" />
    Add more 0s if its still too wobbly.

    Stacking rotators can also help. Like turning a rotator with a 90 degree range into three rotators with 30 a degree range.

    EDIT: Suggested rotator configuration for your build would be:
    Two rotators with "damperMultiplier="100000"

  • How to turn a ship? 5 months ago

    @CaptainJackSparrow With a ship propelled by sails, it will be less complicated when it comes to steering. Just use the rudder at the stern and rudder inside the bow. If your ship weighs less than 2 million pounds, using a gyroscope for stability will not be needed.

  • Weird lightning bug 1.5 years ago

    Its what happens when either the width or height is scaled to a greater value than the other, like scale="1,0.01,1" and either the "rise" or the "run" value is set too high OR the corners are set the anything other than "Hard"

    Solution A: Increase the thickness of the offending blocks by increasing the scale.

    Solution B: Reduce the Rise or Run by using smaller blocks.
