  1. I was doing some thinking about a context for a late WW2 aircraft design as I thought builds around this time period could be very fun and interesting. The theatre I came up with us an alternate timeline where the Luftwaffe wins the battle of Britain and successful occupies Great Britain. After this they successfully defeat Soviet forces and are then preparing for attacks on the United States. My vision would be that this war would be fought at Sea and in the Air. German forces from occupied Britain would fight for Iceland and Greenland in the North fighting against Canadian and some of the United States forces, whilst the United States Navy would try to hold Atlantic island chains in the South against German forces from Spain and North Africa. I imagine that Germany would have ramped up production of the Me262 whilst still producing late war Bf 109s and Fw 190s. Germany will have also completed their production models of Hitler's Amerikbomber which would threaten Cities like New York. My idea is that the USA would be forced to rush jets into production to counter the Me262. They would use jet engines sent from the British that they would reverse engineer to produce their own. Early jets were slow to enter production and were notoriously unreliable and had very short range so the US airforce and navy would need new piston aircraft capable of holding their own. Im curious if anyone else has any thoughts on where US aircraft design would have gone if they were forced to keep innovating and if the war was to be fought on this front. Also im going to be designing some aircraft with this theatre in mind using Realism Overhaul and Real Solar system if anyone wants to share some design ideas or specifications for new aircraft
  2. Hi. Love your work. Have you thought about doing parts where the parts you choose have much greater affect on the planes performance? I find with KSP parts and mods it’s more about how you get it to look, but surely you could base parts off WW2 designs and get a whole lot more variety, for example, lightweight fuselage pieces similar to the design of the Zero to get great climb rate and turning and acceleration but then also a heavier option like the p47 or even an armoured version like the il 2, just to trade off different performances so there’s more variety. You could also do thick high lift wing pieces and thin laminar flow speed wings and engines that are heavy so don’t accelerate well but have turbo chargers for high altitudes or lightweight engines that have powerful thrust to weight ratios but suffer from over heating. i know it’s a huge amount of work but from your opinion, could it work?
  3. Yeah that's sort of what I was thinking. Im trying to set up a first mission at the moment where you need to create a fighter bomber to attack a Luftwaffe base, fend off the BF109s and bomb/ straif the Stukas parked at the airfield to prevent them from bombing allied forces
  4. Yeah I love that mod. It just doesn't seem to work at all in 1.8.1 which is what I'm using to be new enough but still supporting RO. Im trying the Skylers weapons parts and it seems to be working well so far
  5. Yes. At the moment I'm looking a the B9 procedural wings, BD armory of course, everything that comes with Realism Overhaul on CKAN, airplane plus and tweak scale. Im currently looking for a mod to provide more realistic weaponry and I'm also trying nerfing some of the BD armory guns as they will take down a prop plane instantly
  6. Im trying it with RO now and it's really cool. Im setting up some World War 2 bases in North Africa and Europe for some World War 2 challenges
  7. Aircraft Mission Sharing/ Build Challenge I wanted to put forward the idea of a challenge where people can put forward ideas for and create different mission scenarios set in RealSolarSystem Mod such as a city fortified with tanks or a Bomb target somewhere in WW2 Germany and then let anyone who wants to download the save file then design their own Aircraft to complete the mission. I think this could create some really fun possibilities like building an A-10 like plane to take out a line of tanks or a WW2 Bomber with the range to reach Berlin from London to avoid BF109 interceptors and drop its bombs and return home. If anyone has any ideas or wants to take part let me know!
  8. oh nice thank you! might be a bit complicated for people if its for the challenge. whats your planes performance like?
  9. I tried aviator arsenal and love it. but for some reason on the current version of KSP none of the aviator arsenal ammo boxes show up for me. if you have any tips id love to include them
  10. could use breaking ground. I don't have the making history though. nice plane! I found the browning machine guns do next no damage so I added the the Vulcan hidden and nerfed it to 250 rounds per minute thanks! I appreciate it
  11. Cool planes mate. How do you add the pictures? I'd like to add some rules and stuff for judging if you're interested
  12. WW2 Defence Contract/ Warbird Build Challenge Is anyone interested in a WW2 aircraft build challenge using BDarmoury and airplane plus? I was thinking maybe in the style of companies battling for the defence contracts after an invasion similar to the WW2 arms race. We could build aircraft for classes such as Fighters, Attackers and Bombers and score them based on performance for its class and look/realism (I love warbirds made using command seats and custom made cockpits for realism) I don't know how to make one of these fancy looking pages with nice pictures and everything but if anyone is interested and wants to help me set it up let me know.
  13. Yeah I think this is true. I love the idea, I just have no idea how, mods, games or game physics work haaaa Yeah! I wish I knew how to do this kinda stuff! This is why I’m looking for someone who thinks it’s a good idea and does now haaa
  14. To me the fun of KSP was the experimentation when you first started. I just thought it would be cool to get that back by adding way more options than just a few stock engines
  15. Didn’t even know that was possible , can you mod on it?
