[Proposal] Fast travel for planes (based on SCANSat results & GPS)

Recommended Posts

Here is the idea. If you have a group of GPS satellites on orbit and you are done with SCANSat mapping then you could do fast travel on your plane. This will give a reason to build GPS constellations and will make easier contracts sort of "take scientific data from 5 points on 9999km distance from each other". No more boring half-hour flights.

Conditions:
- SCANSat map, you can fast travel only in discovered area
- at least 3 GPS satellites in line of sight (there is old GPS antenna part in SCANSat)
- be on cruising altitude (10km, for example)

You pick a point on a map, plugin calculates the route and fade out screen (maybe turn on more than 4x warp). Fuel spending is calculated too: if your fuel level became lower than 15% fast travel stops at a calculated point on the route and you can make an emergency landing.

Something similar has been done for boats (somewhere on Fengist's boat mod thread) and rovers (AutoRover I think). Would be helpful.

Fengist has stopped all development of it, and the thread just has a complaint about Squad.

This was a mod from a different developer for Fengist's mod. I can't recall the name of the mod at the moment or who was working on it.

Found it - Contract Pack: Maritime Missions and Boat Navigation Plugin by WhiteCat106

Includes a boat navigation plugin
