Transcript of OP
Anything you guys think needs a mention in OP?

First attempt at something that flies:


Also why was the other thread closed?

Damn, I almost got to make the new thread.

Ooh, one post away.

Still setting this thread up so it’ll be prettier later.

[editline]1st February 2012[/editline]

Auto close for threads with 30+ pages every first day in a month.

O new thread.

Woop :v:, carry on the tradition!

I shall soon get a powerplant in the Corsair and post

I approve

Wip thread is the best thread


How about “You must construct additional tanks”
or “We require more vespine planes”

“Garry’s Tanks: Tank Building Simulator”

Updated my mek for all these planes im now seeing

also added a self destruct that deactivates the e2 when the ammo lights up
aka it falls over and dies

Add some useful tools and links to them to the op. It might help new builders.

Good idea. I’ll do that tomorrow.

I’m in Sweden what.

So I go the second last post in the old thread, and asked for a tutorial on how to power something with an engine, not how to make an engine, sorry for the misunderstanding :v

[editline]2nd February 2012[/editline]

I think I got an idea of how to do it from some of mrwhites videos…

anyway does anyone have a package/list/svn of what tools to use for building engines?

I’m making the list now for the most used addons for building shit so you should look back in a moment. There’s probably more addons that’s good for building engines than I can list though.

Well for engines I’m not so much into yet, I just wanna build some cars for now, seems more simple.

[editline]2nd February 2012[/editline]

but thank you for doing a list :slight_smile:

So, what’s it like to be in Sweden? :v:

You can’t enjoy staying in Sweden, it’s freakin’ cold here! Where in Sweden are you? :slight_smile:

Corsair combat ready with four alternate firing 30mm HMGs. Retracts by way of fading door. It even stalls realistically if it pitches too sharply out of relative wind, though I have no idea how I got it to do that, I certainly didn’t strike out for that, but it kind of pleases me. Feels strikingly similar to Il-2.

It just won its first dogfight against Phoenix’s spitfire

Beautiful. Can I get a close shot of your windscreen design? :v:

[editline]3rd February 2012[/editline]

also I added a bunch of neat tutorials for building shit. there’s also a transcript of the OP if someone needs to quote it in another thread when this one is closed at 30+ pages in the future.

I tried to do that BRD system, could not do it to save my own life, and then once I thought I got it working, it just sprung back and forth… maybe I should just stop trying.

Added a bomb bay:

And size comparison:

There shouldn’t be any reason to ever use PHX 2 metal props, yet I see that you have some on your wings there. Please don’t tell me you like that texture.
