Master Engineer Challenge (Sanic Challenge)


Recommended Posts

So it's no secret we've all stuck a mainsail on a metal plate and shot it to infinity and beyond, Here is a challenge for you that lets you sorta do that, You can make the fastest Land, Sea or Air vehicle (that means rockets too :wink:

Simple right?

How hard can it be to strap a massive engine to something? We'll this isn't the hobby engineer challenge is it? Your craft must be a e t h s e t i c as well as fast. 

How is the leader board ran Kenji? I will do it based on raw speed! The faster the vehicle and the faster the acceleration then the higher you go on the board, simple. 

Just post your craft here via image or video, video is better. 

Anyone can have a go can't hurt can it? 

Now I hear you scream "This is most likely been done" Well I am looking to see some World Records set here! 

Rules are easy stock only no mods scrubs! :cool: 

Mods are for the weak! unless it's BDA

Flight assist mods are okay I guess, I will let it slide. 

Remember its not just raw power, looks count as well! If its just a engine strapped to something 0% thought, then its likely your not going to make a appearance, I will Message the individuals in question should it occur, doubt it though.

Here is my aircraft entry, XCV SoundProject,  I won't count myself in the leader boards that's just sad :P

Type of images I would like to prove speed - https://gyazo.com/4495a8149de81995c451a5b2a2398828

It has a pitiful top speed of....... 1,406 m/s You guys can beat that! 

My secret is Pink Guy  - Pink Season :wink: 

As the entries come in I will make the leader boards :D 

Good Luck! 

Kenji! :D

Heh, I did this a few days ago with the Sombrero. No cheats involved.

Oh, minor note: You have to launch vertically...skid horizontally, fall off the runway, quickly pitch down and just *hope* it takes off.

Love the font use. I'm hooked, time to boot up KSP.

^^^ The 'my craft is exploding because it went too fast' screen is an excellent proof of speed ^^^

 

For my contribution, I made a cluster of SRBs with a protective cladding, which can ostensibly be called a

Top speed? 50m/s! All those ballasts are a draaaaag.

Trip to the water...

quick question: would staging anything disqualify any craft? like staging an engine or SRB or fuel tanks? and another question: I have a mod that edits the sounds the jet engines make, but it also edits the thrust of some engines to match the real world counterparts. I have done a bit of testing and the only engines that really are affected are the Juno engine and the Goliath engine (their thrust is greatly increased, making my super-heavy planes actually able to fly). I plan on going extremely fast anyways, so I am still going to try and submit a craft. Most likely a plane. This is where my great use of Whiplash engines will shine!
