  • Excellent suv chassis 5.8 years ago

    It's great but you forgot something that just about everyone forgets. When suspension is in the builder, it is at maximum extension. You've built it so that where the optimum ride height should be is where you've set maximum extension. The vehicle will ride too low, have short travel and very poor traction. As a general rule, the suspension should be 20% below the desired ride height when in the builder. That way the suspension will sag into position and be soft enough to absorb small bumps but still have enough travel to handle large bumps. That said, you did a nice job with the mechanics and detail. Perhaps too much detail...

  • How to make money on SimplePlanes (possibility) 5.1 years ago

    Multiple people have demonstrated that the upvote system is incredibly easy to ‘hack’ (it doesn’t even deserve that term). The only reason that people don’t actually do it is that there’s no point (and they have the slightest sense of decency). The play-to-earn road is not something anyone should want to go down.

    Well that’s neat. It would be a good feature actually if it said "please enter a description" instead of an error message. It could help cut down on spam/low effort posts

  • constant yaw on takeoff? 5.5 years ago

    Have you checked that the airfoil type of the vertical stabiliser is symmetric? That catches me out surprisingly often. I don't think propellers obey newton's laws of physics in SimplePlanes. Do you get any slight autoroll in-flight?

    Do you mean speed relative to the ground or airspeed? Some Extra and Bipe aircraft can prophang (hover). I have several RC 3D aircraft that can hover

  • Sr2 isn’t replacing sp 5.5 years ago

    SP is going to have continual updates and optimizations for civil and military aircraft. SR2 will have basic functionality for aircraft but will focus mainly on spacecraft.

  • We should have the ability to remove successors that other people have made a blatant ripoff of 4.8 years ago

    Well that's why we have moderators. It's annoying, sure, but it would be rather poor if anyone could remove any and all successors of their creations. You'd need a way of regulating it like... appointing moderators. But I do acknowledge it can be mildly frustrating

  • Should I post my fighter series? 5.5 years ago

    If they take no skill to make, don’t post them. Enjoy flying them around yourself and try not to rely on other people online for gratification. Most of my creations are not uploaded, but I’m also not ashamed of them. I upload what I put a lot of effort into but I mostly fly the unuploaded creations. I think you should try creating more detail for them and use a livery that is pleasing to the eye before uploading

  • Derek's 3rd rant about AI 5.6 years ago

    I think the devs need to employ some form of PID loop control (customisable in XML) for AI leveling, add some basic parameters for maneuvers (don’t pull a half cuban or Immelmann while at 100ft and supersonic) and allow small percentages of deflection (AI currently goes full deflection for a fraction of a second to make small corrections). I’m not a programmer, but I’m fairly certain it shouldn’t be too hard to implement these suggestions. I can help with producing documentation and examples for PID loops if you need it @AndrewGarrison

  • Tips on making race cars? 5.8 years ago

    1. Independent suspension is fun but lack of differential makes it bouncy and awful on tarmac
    2. True F1 suspension is unbelievably hard to get working but is AMAZING
    3. Use a little bit of downforce with angled wings. Have slightly more down-force on the rear
    4. Full traction forward/back and slightly below full for sideways
    5. Stock settings for wheel suspension can work OK on some setups

    Just how I get decent performance. Other people go for other setups

  • Motor Mirage 6.0 years ago

    my trick for getting the AI to turn well at speed is to have suspension set very low with high damping (this shouldn't theoretically work but it does sometimes), airbrakes on the sides (left side activates with left steering, vice versa), downforce, ailerons on spoiler to counter-act side forces (so it wont flip)

  • Q&A with yours truly! 6.1 years ago

    What is your full name? who are your parents? siblings and grandparents? what is your credit card number? what is your IP? what is your facebook password? where do you live? where is the closest police station and what is their beat pattern? What is the first school you went to? What university (if any) did you go to? What hospital were you born at? What is your date of birth? Where do you keep you birth certificate?

  • What annoys you the most about the SP website? 4.0 years ago

    I second @MrSilverWolf
    Back when I was using discord regularly, it was overrun by people who were banned on the website and did nothing but trashpost. But then again, things could have changed, maybe that's just what Discord servers are like, or maybe I just noticed the negative things too much

  • 1.8 Beta now available 5.0 years ago

    @UssInvincible lol. A few people ask this every day and dozens ask that question whenever a dev makes a post or a comment. All the previous responses have been an emphatic negative. Maybe that's changed though

  • Built My First Plane In Real Life! 5.4 years ago

    Tips for when you get into RC:
    1. Don't buy EPO kits. Buy EPP foam kits (EPP rebounds, EPO crushes)
    2. Try a 3D plane at some point and learn how to high-alpha
    3. Build cheap planes out of foam board, depron or EPP from flitetest and RCgroups
    4. Replicas are generally expensive and fly poorly
    5. Build lots of paper planes and read up about basic aerodynamics and design
    6. Build your own plane! Perhaps even try a large, RC version of your straw plane

  • MIK Copter HC-114 5.5 years ago

    @SkyEyeMCCIX yes, but could you tell if it was a heavy attack copter or a light recon? While it isn't invisible it is certainly deceiving and confusing to the enemy. If all else fails, it looks good

  • What is popular now? 5.6 years ago

    I’ve stopped bothering to create stuff that other people like. I just make what I think is fun and then take it to various mod maps. Most of the time I don’t even upload my creations because it isn’t important enough to me anymore. I suggest you create whatever you enjoy and upload it if you want.
