Aircraft carry another one.

Postby Toanphuc » Mon Jun 21, 2010 5:16 pm

Last night when discuss on IRC i have realize that it is possible to make an aircraft carry another aircraft such as a B-52 carry X-15 or B-29 carry X-1.This feature is reality cause we both have B-52,X-15 or B-29 and X-1 the only thing left is to attach it and use some script to launch.In single we can treat X-15 like an AI missile and control the B-52 or treat B-52 like an aircraft carrier and control X-15.
Otherwise it will be great in multiplayer when some one control B-52 and the other control X-15.it could make this game way more excite.give me your opinion.

A good flight sim is not to make people feel fly easier but to make them feel fly is as real as it get.

Toanphuc, this would be very nice for SpaceShipOne/Two as well! We already have a model of it in FlightGear, download: http://helijah.free.fr/flightgear/les-a ... pareil.htm
The same system that connects two aircraft could probably be used for pushback over MP. Problem is that someone with time should pick it up ;)

You know one of the problem when use the X-15 and space ship one is it real max altitude.X-15 is 107 km and SS1 is 112 km so we will have to modify our high altitude atmosphere a little bit to bring those aircraft on.
