    @CarrotSlicingCompanyCat How on earth did that get 9,700 downloads?

    My SWL-10 got twice the upvotes, but just 4000 downloads.

    In other news, this car was a waste of effort. It even had a video teaser.

    If you're searching for the first time, I'd use something like one of these builds, and then save a location.

  • Cirrus SR22 4 months ago

    Amazing plane, however the camera for the pilot should have auto center off. I couldn't interact with switches in the middle console before I turned it off. This can easily be addressed with an xml update.
    .
    (EDIT: I found the second camera for look around. Not sure why there isn't just one, but hey, it's your plane)

    Random question - I did the math, and from the upvotes on your posts as of now, you should have 10810 points? Did you delete some old planes?

  • SWL-10 6 months ago

    @iamTexas Yeah, that is a problem. There is a fix, just click on the parking brake, which is labelled in the diagrams, and is just to the left or right of the throttles. It's a red handle.

  • I Built A New Computer 7 months ago

    @TheMaus Correct. The only thing which comes close to a kit is I used a website called PCPartPicker to pick the parts I wanted. It found the best prices in different stores, and it ensured all the parts were compatible with each other.

  • Cessna 402C 7 months ago

    Good plane, and I have some positive and constructive feedback.
    .
    Pros
    .
    Pretty detailed, I like how you put a semi-realistic checklist in the craft instructions. I checklist and instructions is key for someone who has never flown this plane before. Overall build quality is medium (high is like having 5000 parts for stuff like rivets, every single function of the real thing included), and looks nice.
    .
    Recommendations
    .
    I would recommend moving the checklist to a physical one, so as not to clog up the craft instructions. So have craft instructions list the action controls, and then have what to do with those controls be in a physical checklist.
    .
    Another thing I noticed is the prop blades. I did my preflight, lined up, flaps were down, and I went to take off... except I went backwards. VTOL controls flaps and prop pitch with no activation groups.
    .
    I ended up doing a no flaps takeoff, and the flight handling is what one would expect from a plane like this. It rolls a little sensitively, but most planes on SP have this problem.
    .
    Overall, good job, with a few recommendations.

    The same issue occurs for all parts with sliders for me. No idea how to stop this and I didn't submit a bug report because I don't know what causes the issue.

    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.

  • 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.

  • What does the “damper” setting on wheel suspension do? 23 days ago

    @BeastHunter Higher damper reduces bounce. No damper has more bounce.

  • What does the “damper” setting on wheel suspension do? 23 days ago

    Reduces the bounce. Spring strength increases the overall strength, and damper slows down the movement.

  • Problems Mapping Throttle On T-Flight HOTAS One one month ago

    It's possible, go into controls, select the joystick, and click calibrate. Then adjust the zero until the positive axis turns into the whole input. I had the same problem with mine. (Different setup, but same problem).

  • Game Breaking Device one month ago

    @SheriffHackdogMCPE There aren't fuselages in one place... It's so weird. I have a version from 10 minutes before this post which is fine, and is still fine. In those 10 minutes I only added a single part, not even clipping with anything else. On top of that, removing the same part doesn't fix the issue.

  • Too many variables one month ago

    Please tag me on thisss.
    Also about the actual problem, it's not because of the variables. The SWL-120 has over 200, and there are never problems.

  • Just Like A Flight Simulator - SWL-120 Progress Update Part 2 2 months ago

    @IceCraftGaming Yes. (Mostly). It won't have the ultra advanced stuff, but most things you'd find in a flight sim (and more even) will be in this. By ultra advanced I mean things like a fully working keyboard where you can type letters. It will have a waypoint system with flight plans and an autopilot with many functions like flying to waypoints.
