  • Ideas for 1.9 and up 8 months ago

    Maybe a muzzle flash for the WWII destroyers when they fire flak for aesthetic purposes.

    Configurable muzzle flash size for guns.

    Missiles can still guide themselves to targets even if they run out of fuel. (Boost phases for most missiles aren’t all the way to impact)

    Fix issue where structural wings xml edited to have control surfaces don’t completely cease function (including lift) when any part of the plane is destroyed by a gun.

    Activation group windows.

    Zooming in cameras and cockpits.

    Tracer glow visibility at longer distances.

    Boss fight capital ships (Battleship or Battlecruiser).

    Surface ship AI difficulty:
    Easy: Current System.
    Medium: More accurate targeting with guns and flak, faster and smarter missiles.
    Difficult: Phalanx guns added to modern destroyers (Engage both planes and missiles shot at it), main guns switch to proximity fused rounds (flak), smarter Missiles. WWII destroyers fire off more accurate rounds.

    Just saying...
    ————
    You’d have to be going much faster than Mach 2.5 to create a plasma sheath over your aircraft.
    ————
    The plasma sheath also isn’t really stealth. It just blocks communication and radio waves from entering through it or leaving it. The signals are instead reflected rather than absorbed.
    ————
    You’re also generating a lot of heat that can be seen on infrared sensors.
    ————
    It is an interesting concept tho

    @MrVaultech (StaffelKaptäin
    6371) had an "incident" and banned the entire opposing side to GUES and then I believe he stepped down and someone unbanned them.
    .
    After this, @Warbrine (Thatguychris(Kellogs Miniwheats)

    @TheFantasticTyphoon

    The heat depends on the viscosity of the air as friction occurs on its surface. So at lower altitudes it could generate a significant amount of heat but I doubt it would be enough to create a plasma sheath.
    —————
    Also... if a plasma sheath could even be created it wouldn’t absorb radar. The plasma sheath acts as a barrier to reflect waves coming in and out of the aircraft.

    @MrVaultech most of your attack boats lacked close in defense systems or mid ring defense. You may have had spotting with you in the form of helicopters, but that can’t do much of you have very little ways to stop an attack.
    .
    He expected a very very large force and fired an excessive amount of missiles, that’s the issue. He sunk the peacekeeping force on lack of information canonically. (But outside of canon, he probably was just being a jerk, lol.)
    .
    I’ve used similar tactics to justify actions against nations but with arguably a better alibi. It’s a low blow but it’s valid.
    .
    Also, it’s not all about technology. Tactics play a role.

  • [SLRP] Discord Server Deleted 8 months ago

    @MrVaultech
    An explanation to that would be his use of carrier borne aircraft and mid air refuelling, allowing for aircraft to deployed from very very far away bases. (Falklands where they literally sent Bombers across the Atlantic from Europe using mid air refuelling to strike targets far south).

    Depending on the types of ships, they can pretty quickly respond to landings (Fast Patrol Boats, Hydrofoils, maybe Ekranoplans if he’s into that). Destroyers can strike more than 250km away with cruise missiles. They don’t have to get within very close proximity if proper spotting is present such as low observable drones, forces already present, AWACS, satellite imaging or blindly firing a missile at the general area and hoping the seeker picks up a threat on its own.

  • Katherine A. Wilde-Class Fleet Carrier 1.4 years ago

    @PyrusEnderhunter I still don't get what you mean by that.

    @ChisP Kind of problematic due to scaling issues and the aerodynamics of some of my planes.

    @Mickk You can, but you should disable the engine in the front of the ship (kind of hard to find) because of how planes don't have friction between each other.

    @blueangelproduction @AWESOMENESS360 @spefyjerbf Thankyou!

  • Do missiles ignore health points? 2.3 years ago

    The destroyer launched missiles don’t have a warhead. They use basically ram damage to bring down aircraft. But all plane launched missles have a warhead. When the missile explodes it usually sends an outward force which sends nearby blocks into each other causing them to explode. Which sucks because I can’t make a plane launched missile proof ship lol.

  • [SLRP] Discord Server Deleted 8 months ago

    @MrVaultech
    My main criticism was that you determined actions made by IDAFOR to be an issue when most of the tactics used were valid. Some rules were violated but the rules were problematic in themselves with obvious exploits unattended to in favour of your side.
    .
    You banned members of IDAFOR off of loose assumptions and refused evidence to their innocence.
    .
    A majority of IDAFOR members were little cause for concern and my main belief of your actions is that you were starting to have issues with holding your lines when I took command in the place of the banned player as the mass banning of IDAFOR members occurred within an hour of the advance into Iowa and Florida as well as the loss of Canada from their switch of sides.
    .
    I understand that IDAFOR, especially PilotMario, is a very difficult thing to deal with, considering their methods, but this level of action was not necessary. People have spent a long time trying to set the server up and just because of a losing battle, you chose to remove it all?

  • Tiwas 1 AOCM 11 months ago

    The main issues I see with this having the range that it does are:
    -The missile is ground launched without any initial speed from a launch aircraft as well as...
    -The size of the missile is only 6.7ft while the Hermes missile (The missile this was based on) is 11.4ft in length while only capable of hitting ground targets at 30km (Yours has about 98.17km range apparently).


    Edit: Wait, it was vertically placed... my bad... lol

    The Izumo is a World of Warships "paper ship" which was a proposed design for the Yamato class battleships that was scrapped. The proposed design was similar to the Rodney with the all forward turret layout but was rejected in favor of the two front and one aft layout.

  • Beginning of the End (SPRP 2030 S2) 1.8 years ago

    @apfel33
    The RP is a bit strange. But I’ll list what to expect here:
    1) Yes companies buying tons of nuclear weapons
    2) Yes people are crazy and want to destroy the world
    3) People like to cause problems or try stupid things such as sailing Superstructure-less Battlecruisers without a bilge pump into uncharted rocky and insane storms expecting to survive.
    4) There are imperialists looking to absorb and take over smaller territories
    5) There are people smart enough to destroy nations by using internal problems as a way to cause your collapse without firing a single shot.
    6) There are people who go beyond unlikely Alternate History methods to make themselves seem stable (Though would be subject to the “Realism Bat”

    But, the Federation is always here to help, serve, and protect the people of this and many other worlds(Servers) to come.

    3) The era is 2035. Meaning all tech should be improved or working concepts of current 2018 tech and concept designs that have great enough progress to be feasible within 10 years of 2018.
    4) All things should be practical and make sense.
    5) No orbital weapons. It makes combat just cancerous.
