    @shipfinder568 You must be doing something wrong. I recommend you either watch the how to fly video (linked in the description), or use the easy mode version (linked in the description).

  • Using FT to deactivate other inputs at whim yesterday

    All of this can fit into a single label with a few buttons. First, make the display code for each screen. For the activation, make each button's variable output displayNumber (this can be changed, just make sure to change it in all areas it is used), and set their outputValue to a number, say 1-5 (a different number for each button). Make the interactionType for the buttons Once. I recommend a size changing system, which makes all the unused screens a size of 0, basically hiding them. Use <size={displayNumber = 1 ? "100" : "0"}%>, changing the display number value based on what display it is. I think that code should work, I didn't test it.

    Let me know if you have any problems.

  • Aircraft Seats yesterday

    @PacificWesternAirlines I'm using reshade with quite a few effects.

    The mixture is at full under 3000 feet, and slowly goes to one quarter at 13000 feet. This is similar to irl.

  • SP Is GPU Bound Now... 4 days ago

    @V Yeah, in fact if I drag out like 20 of the base parts (the seat bases for the whole interior), my GPU maxes out and the CPU is barely doing anything.

  • SWL-10 4 days ago

    @ThereIsNoahScape What I'd do is look at the rotators controlling the mixture levers, and steal the code from them. Please give credit if you do this.

  • SP Is GPU Bound Now... 4 days ago

    @V I think it's because these seats are intense. I spent a total of twenty hours modelling a set of three seats (with every nook and cranny having details...), and then I have 447 of them. There are millions of vertices. Most edges are rounded off with another 15 sided corners. That's a lot of 3D stuff to render. Literally all the parts in SP are simple meshes compared to even one of these seats.

  • SWL-10 4 days ago

    @ThereIsNoahScape I didn't put mixture in, they just move based on altitude to pretend there is mixture.

  • Aircraft Seats 5 days ago

    @50CalChicken An idea we (klm and me) have for a plane is to make 3D modelled parts which all fit together to make a 50 part highly detailed aircraft. Most parts would be custom made for the plane and would only fit on that plane, and the SWL-120 (latest forum here) will also use a hybrid of a similar idea. About your landing gear, it's important to use the default SP wheels due to their special properties, but a set of highly detailed 3D modelled landing gear would be cool. It would be some 3D parts you attach rotators and wheels to.

  • Aircraft Seats 5 days ago

    @50CalChicken We only know how to make basic 3D modelled mod parts. Anything beyond this, while learnable, would likely not be done. It's a cool idea, and I was also thinking about having screens in the back of the seat which could actually play a video, but it's just a little too advanced for us as of now. Sorry. In the future it could happen, but right now, I don't think so. Still a cool idea.

  • SP Is GPU Bound Now... 5 days ago

    @X99STRIKER no. Even back when android was available (for my first ever mods), I couldn't figure out how.

  • Making The SWL-120's New Wings 5 days ago

    @228228 Read the pinned forum. I talk about part count and versions there.

  • SP Is GPU Bound Now... 5 days ago

    @HuskyDynamics01 That's what I'm thinking of. 1 part for each whole body. A basic plane would be like 50 parts, because of rotators and each 3D model, not including the cockpit switches, physics wings, landing gear, etc. But yeah, it would make SP a gpu dependant game.

    @Cereal I think maybe a year. I honestly don't know.

  • I pretty cool idea for Simpleplanes but it’s something i don’t mind if it’s not added. 7 days ago

    You can do this with some FT which isn't even that complicated. If I had a basic jet plane with a cockpit I could code it in about a day (don't ask me to).

  • Wierd flaps 8 days ago

    Where is the link?

    Also, by any chance, did you use fuselage slicing for the flaps in question? What does it look like if you set all the slicing values to 100%?

  • Who has a wiki database of their own aircraft? 9 days ago

    I sort of have this. It's a list of my "good" planes, the ones with months of work.

    Even better, this. It's an attempt to organize and list all the planes I ever made.

  • How to double input? 12 days ago

    For something like a control surface you want clamp(Pitch + Roll, -1, 1). It allows both to function normally but stops combinations from exceeding -1 or 1.

  • Making Unity mods on macOS supported? 12 days ago

    It just occurred to me you are using 2018 not 2020. 2018 does not work.

  • Making Unity mods on macOS supported? 13 days ago

    I'm not sure about mac versus Windows, but for me the simpleplanes toolbar (next to component, window, and others) appears as soon as I click import and the importing finishes. I don't know much about working on a mac, but I do know installing and running mods works, but I don't know about creating mods.

  • How to Fly the SWL-10 13 days ago

    @BruhMomenthmgfbvbukjgv I just tested it (the one on the public post) myself and it works.

  • How to Fly the SWL-10 13 days ago

    @BruhMomenthmgfbvbukjgv Try the easy mode version and that should work.

  • How to Fly the SWL-10 13 days ago

    @BruhMomenthmgfbvbukjgv As in the startup sequence is difficult? I did make an easy mode version (which hasn't been updated but should still work).

    Nice. I also had the idea of a magnet attaching to a plane/car with a camera, I just haven't worked on this idea. I can see here it works.

  • Working ILS In SimplePlanes! 14 days ago

    @OPaiTaOn If you mean adjust the base throttle input, you can't. The default inputs like roll, pitch, yaw, brake, throttle, vtol, trim (and some others I forgot) can only be modified by directly connecting those to a variable (Sliders go with levers, throttles, and yokes, and activation groups go with switches and buttons). What I'd recommend is making a variable which references throttle and also can switch to taking inputs from other sources like a button.

  • Making a HUGE aircraft today 14 days ago

    It looks pretty good. For those artificial horizon screens, just putting the 1 part HUD on a 3 parts artificial horizon works pretty well.

  • Do PC mods work on the standalone Quest 2 version? 14 days ago

    From what I know (I'm exclusively PC with no VR), the Quest runs on Android, so if mods worked it would be android mods, which have been kinda discontinued (although I think working files exist, you have to ask around). I can't tell you yes or no, but if you want to try it would be android. Again, I don't really know.

  • Controlling AI Vehicles 17 days ago

    @TRD6932 huh. Send it and I'll look at it. I haven't tested this past a block with four wheels and a joystick, but this theoretically should work for all things.

  • Controlling AI Vehicles 17 days ago

    @TRD6932 For the variables, those are actually on the control base (the bit the joystick is attached to). Also note the two setters to 0 in the global variables panel. If you are interested in learning this yourself, download the car (linked at the top of the post) and look at it yourself.

    Also just in case it comes up, you can use any variable you want. I just used Pitch1 and Roll1 to show how they work.
