STUNT Challenge (finished): Towing & Short Runways!

Postby Oscar » Fri Jul 08, 2011 8:14 pm

New challenge!

First of all, congratulations to Sealbhach for winning last week's Stunt Challenge.

This week: Towing!

Raphat and I have been working on a towing movie which is on YouTube now, and we thought it would be cool to get a stunt challenge around this as well!



So: get yourself a glider, get yourself on multiplayer and get yourself towed!

Have fun :wink:

Submit your screenshots and videos before Friday the 15th of July. By submitting videos or screenshots you allow me to use them in next week's video for a few seconds (I hate saying this all the time, but it has to: rights and stuff).

Sorry. The video becomes a bit long, so I didn't want add any more scenes. So here's another view, which hopefully shows what you are asking for. The tail didn't match the runway, but in these conditions I was glad to prevent the bird from being blown away.

By the way: your landing was also quite amazing!

YAY! I won! Careful video editing can make any landing appear about 500% better than it really was. :twisted:

Maybe Jack and I should reenact our epic journey into the stratosphere. I was in the Panzer tank, and he towed me straight up with the Bluebird. And then the rope broke... :)

Hey guys,

Since no one submitted any towing video or screenshot this week, I'm changing stuff a bit: the towing challenge won't be closed yet.

And there's also a new challenge:

Short runway landings!



Submit your entries for the towing challenge AND for the short runway landings before August the 5th!!

So plenty of time for two challenges.

Have fun!


By submitting videos or screenshots you allow me to use them for a few seconds on a future Stunt Friday video.

For short landings, take a look a what a Twotter can do for inspiration :D

A little video of a landing on the rooftop at Alcatraz. OK it's not really a runway but it's a very short flat space.

It's quite tricky to land on the roof because the approach is visually deceptive and if you slow down too much you hit the side of the building. I had to kill the throttle while still in the air then slam on the brakes after I fell onto the roof.



By the by, I wanted to use the tower placement script to get some nicer views but it doesn't seem to be working any more in git. Anyone else notice that?

@Sealbhach: If it wasn't for the CASA vs. Twotter video Bob(?) posted I would think the FDM was way unrealistic. The Twotters seem to behave exactly the same way. Hats of to the aircraft developer(s)! 8)
