    What ? ? ?
    This deserves an upvote even that I haven't tried it.
    Just wondering why Gestour is still not a member of Jundroo.

    A masterpiece with no doubt, excellent work.

    I feel it so funny that some people see this as "inappropriate", this robot is well covered by clothes and all the equipments and functions show it as a combat machine instead of a sex doll.
    In daily life we can see tons of contents in advertisement or cartoons with more skin exposed, which didn't come with a 10+ age rating.
    People should spend their critics on those vibration sticks or the political sarcasms, not on this outstanding work.

  • 1.8 Beta now available 3.4 years ago

    beta feedback:
    Game seems to run faster than older version, even with the new post-effect on.

    Two minor bugs:
    1.New heli rotor tend to make a vibration at mid-low rpm, more obvious if unpowered (autogyro).
    2.Wind has no effect on new heli rotor, even 200mph wind cannot make it rotate (while an airspeed of 17mph can make it rotate very fast).

  • SimplePlanes VR is now available on Steam and Oculus Quest 8 months ago

    hey Andrew, some questions and suggestions here, nothing about VR but I couldn't find a proper place to ask. I need feedback to this, from any of you DEVs, please.

    Questions:
    1. When using PID function, like PID(t,c,p,i,d), if I set the i to zero, does the game still do the sum calculation anyway? If yes, does this make huge waste of performence ?
    2. For guns and cannons, how does AI judge the time to fire? In other words, how should I make AI fire guns? I made an autoaim that can aim the gun and the main cockpit perfectly, but AI just refuse to fire.
    3. Does the FT variable system have a limit of the amount of variables? Or does huge amount of variables(like 100) cause great lag?

    Suggestion
    1. Weapons like guns and cannons need FT input support! Not the activation group, but the trigger! I'm so tired that AI wouldn't fire any FT weapons.
    2. Secondary cockpit needs more output variables, especially AltitudeAGL, which would enable much more possibility.

    That's all, I know you are busy with VR right now, but please give me a feedback to this, thank you.

    @PlanariaLab Thanks for answering, I might have the capability to biuld this but I don't think this original idea would ever come up to my mind.
    The launch of SPVR didn't motivate me to purchase a VR hardware, but this did!
    Looking foward to your further works on this.

    the new helicopter parts are detailed and fun to play with, but not perfect.
    A highly completed part will make some jobs easier than before, but it also greatly limits the possibilities, that's kind of a paradox for a sandbox game like SP.

    For the heli rotor part, it doesn't have an invert option (although rotating it 180 deg can kinda does the job), the collective pitch only has one input so not easy to make roll and pitch control for multi-rotor aircrafts, the power is also single input which make yawing torque without tail rotor impossible (double blade helicopter and multi-rotor aircraft generate yawing torque by differentiating rotating speed).

    In all, the new helicopter parts are good, but only for building a conventional single-blade helicopter, hope we can have more expanding possibilities at public version.

    @Awsomur @DarthAbhinav Well as a Chinese currently lives in France, I do want to say something. While China is wildly known as communist, it's nothing like the NK nor the USSR, officially we call it "Communism with a Chinese way", which honestly "betrayed" the Communism and is more like a capitalist economy with a gouvernement different than the western ones. Things about Facebook, YouTube and Wikipedia are true, but you need to know that western media and main stream always lead the public to the negative sides of China and even enlarge them, as China is a potential threat at economy and politics. I'm only an engineering student and don't know quite well about politics, but please don't let politics be a factor or even a main stream at this international community of lovers of planes. Let's keep it pure.

    Hello, I need some help with VR curation.
    I'm planing on a new plane and I intend to make it VR compatible from the beginning, but I don't have any VR headset, can you offer some basic guides and rules?
    Mostly dimensional wise, like the distance from camera to display screen, and to control sticks.
    Thank you.

    @Valheru better set your cannon velocity 16000 than try doing reverse engineering, cuz the codes are way too long and messy, or wait until i work out a cannon version.

    @TropicalCrow a program that will automatically control the control surfaces by calculating flying datas and the input from pilot. It will enhance the performance to the best and even allow an unstable plane to fly.

    Hey friend, I'm trying to make mods myself, but I can't even take one step further than the video tutorials, I don't know where to get the infos of how parts behave in scripts (ex how a rotator rotates). How did you get the code needed ? Any suggestions ?

  • Zx-13 Otana 7 months ago

    Well, I can see my droplet hidden in the belly, with the whole set of variables barely modified.
    This is not an ideal way to use those codes, and I think a successorship is needed in this case, which you chose to delete.
    However, I'm planning to make a simplified version of the droplet core, to make the technology available for other players.

  • Droplet 7 months ago

    @AWESOMENESS360 It's a symbol ○ (or an "o" might also work) with variable size and alpha value, plus some codes to make these values change over time, plus some more codes to make the frequency change according to speed.
    I made a color display demo that can do smooth color and alpha changing, if you are interested.

    @OrderlyHippo always glad to help, if you care to understand those codes(very difficult though), variable explanation is in the in-game craft instruction, it might help more or less.

  • Automated Floating Cannon 8 months ago

    @Simpleplaner656 i would suggest you drag your planes into this as assembly instead, the drone can't be easily grabbed as it has a secondary cockpit inside, plus there are tons of variables that don't go into assemblies.

  • Update v1.10 - Smooth as Glass 1.6 years ago

    Funky tree has greatly increased the possibility of the game indeed, while its limits are also obvious.
    A set of global custom variables would be great for shorting code lengths and achieving more capability:
    8 double variables named from cv0 to cv7 (hence no need to define), set values in a single block, and can be used by all other parts (read only).

    Also, I wish there were more math funtions such as 3d vector calculation (dot product, cross product), typing these calculations by whole is really painful.

  • Chinese Chess 4.4 years ago

    While you typed (or copy-pasted) such a long text, you didn't make the characters right. The characters should be written differently for the same role on different color sides, for example the generals are written as 将(black) and 帥(red), the soldiers are written as 卒(black) and 兵(red). This is a funny mistake like making a piano and painting all the keys in the same colour.

    @AndrewGarrison Yes I've read this for many times, but I didn't find many behavior scripts, I think I might have misunderstood something. Another question, are you using Euler Angle rotation in the same order as Unity's default (z >x > y) ? This is the information I must know for calculation.
