Ok, the fighter 3 did crash into a building once. @dundun93, you make what you want of this. I just ran the matches.

Did it crash on takeoff?

No. After the competition started, it flew smack into the VAB

Ok so it counts as a lost.

Score: VAB=1, Fighter 3=0

@dundun93, my only concern for me hosting a category is my computer. If my lag won't be a problem, then I will.

Assuming the next fight is PFLP vs my F/A-18C Hornet, can I go ahead and run that now?

I do believe you're up next @MiffedStarfish. Just as a question,how many parts is your replica? I found that even with yesterdays matches, my computer which handled a 700+ part turboprop fine kinda didn't like it when there were many missiles and flares and other effects

I'll still give it a shot

Welp. RIP my computer. The F-18 is 260 parts. x2, thats 520. With the other craft, I estimate about 720. And that's not even counting the BDA graphics effects.

 

Matches done. Best of 3, PFLP vs F-18. Winner: PFLP

Yeah, my computer could just barely cope. The problem with the f-18s is that they are just too big, and too unwieldy. And not maneuverable enough.

Yeah, replicas just don't do too well against planes that aren't other replicas. Sorry about the part count, but it was a 1:1 replica modified into a BDA craft, not the other way round. The stock version is 505 parts with the missiles. I might try build a dedicated stock aero figh... WAIT!

Sorry about entering two in a row. :blush: (part count is 100, so much less of a strain on your computer)

@MiffedStarfish - I'll try to run it tonight. I will also enter my own craft, the X-27. (no pictures, will post relevant stuff later). I do believe @Skylon is next, so I'll do him first

No no no. The f-18 was supposed to go against the person in last place, Me, but that's ok. Can you do the f-18 vs the ASW X-18M now?

Actually, if the goal is to sort each of the planes on how good they are, I think it would be better to do a method of bisection. Say we have n planes and we want to sort a new one. We take plane n/2 and run the match. If it's better than that plane, we match it against plane n/4, or the middle of the new group. Repeat this until its fully sorted. Likewise, for if it looses, we do the same thing with the bottom list. Lessens the work, sorts the planes faster.

 

TLDR; Quicker way of sorting planes, less work for me, same results. I'm not running 8 best of 3 matches.

The new person goes against the person in last place, and if the new person wins, he goes against the person that is 1 place ahead of the person in last place etc...

But that's not a good way to tell who's better.

You know, over time, this WILL become quite a long list. If I have to run 8 matches, each 10 minutes long, thats more than an hour of my time. I'm not willing to lose that. If we use bisection (the method I listed), it would be a lot quicker. 3 matches, or so for a list of 8

No, it is. It achieves the same goal of sorting a list, but faster

ALSO, I can't run the ASW X-18

@dundun92 got it. I'll run it later. I'm not too optimistic about the MiG though, it's a gunfighter and yours has 4 AIM-120s.
