how about a realism tab so you can turn crashes off and have landing gear snap off and that stuff (if you're not good at flying or landing) :?:

I've noticed some planes will stop flying when you crash them, and others just bounce. With some, you can hit 'u' after crashing to add 1000 feet to your altitude, and they'll start flying again. With others, the altitude will change when you do that, but the plane won't budge.

I'm pretty sure there's some setting you can change to set that behavior to your liking.

As far as landing gear coming off, it could be implemented on a per-plane basis. I guess you could create all kinds of crash effects. But I suspect that most pilots don't really like to crash -- even in real life.

You have some crash effects if you install 'bombable'.

the only plane I've landed is the concorde (I didn't know about extendig flaps) and landing gear snapping off will give you another chance. I've just thought about rotors shredding if you land without gear but it would be hard I guess and planes tipping if you set landing gear to fail (hard aswell probly)
