I’m impressed with your creativity in using inlet parts to add color detail. Great job!
Looks great and flies even better! Great job as always
This is one of my favorite WW2 planes. Very nice job!
Yeah! UN SDGs
Taking a bite out of the competition!
767 + 777 = this
Making each wing out of 2-3 wing parts can help. Also, if you make basic fuselage wings you can connect the engines to the fuselage wings instead of directly to the wing parts.
A bit of xml would improve flight performance tho
The flaps are smooooooth! Also, nice details in the engines and gear.
@klm747klm747 and @Korzalerkle, thanks for the help!
I saw that plane once and I thought it was Boeing’s 747-8i in the house livery. I was very confused and excited for a couple of seconds. I initially saw it off the reflection of a skyscraper so I couldn’t see it very well. I checked flightradar after and saw that it was a National Airlines plane.
Hi, would like to thank everyone who upvoted this plane. As mentioned above, this is a work in progress and I was shocked when I checked this post last night. Thanks again! It means a lot to me!
Also, I had no idea you could change the instruction text colors
This has got to be one of the best DC-8s out there! There aren’t many builds with such detailed liveries also
It’s been forever since I’ve seen a Hawaiian livery around here! Great Job!
I’m so bad at the game, but I love it 😍
Holy Flaps! I love it.
Maybe you could use a small block/fuselage to connect the wheel and shock together
Your planes just keep getting better. Keep up the good work!
The tutorial videos work great for learning the controls for the VR cockpit. I love the built-in checklist as well!
Amazing! It’s a chonky boi too, larger than the GE9X.
The airfoil shape and gear doors are perfect!!
Yo, that’s kinda crazy
those gauges be looking nice
Oh. My. God. This makes the most beautiful engine sound I’ve ever heard in SimplePlanes. Not to mention the fact that the fan looks and spins amazingly as well. If you'd allow me to, I’d like to make a 100-200 part version and put it on a plane.
Congrats to all the other participants and thank you to @KyonIndustries for making this challenge!
Great job! It handles very well and looks great as well.
Also, how did you get the rudder to work so well?
It’s nice to see a livery that doesn’t rely on text boxes. Great job!
@BaconAircraft thanks, that’s very helpful. The spoilers actually also have to go to 60° when the plane is on the ground, but I think I can figure out the code for that.
Nice to see a high-quality livery!
Cool, I had that too
ANA Airbus A380…
@PlaneFlightX thanks for the suggestion! If it doesn’t add too many parts, I’ll probably do that. (although it does add up to 44 fan blades) Also, the sound of the propeller is definitely a little out of place on a GE90.
Nice plane, but it needs instructions
@KendJello one way you could improve performance is by setting the “calculate drag” XML attribute to false on most parts. The performance cost won’t go down, but it should give the game an easier time with the physics simulation.
Amazing plane btw! Very few airliners have such a detailed cockpit and a beautiful livery/exterior as well.
Great level of detail, inside and out!
@NaziParty Er… I haven’t touched it in a few months. The main thing that held it back from being released last summer was the artificial horizon. If I find a way to solve those problems and people seem to want the plane, I would consider working on it in the first half of this year.
@GalacticaAsia thanks for the advice and sorry for taking so long to reply. I originally had a similar setup to your A330 where the back was weighted to cause the tilt. I have since added a spring and piston per the advice of PlaneFlightX and it works pretty nicely. I’ll definitely be looking out for your control base method when you post it though. Sounds interesting!
