I've been thinking about how to make VTOL air craft.

By coding a vehicle. i think it's possible to take some elements from the SUBS movment and mix them with Aircraft movment.

how to control= you get in, you press down/joystick down and you get lift thrust. thus enabling you to hover steady. (preferably making pitch ability limited at this stage)

you tune up the throttle (W or Joystick throttle lever) and you thrust your rear engines and move forward. and then control the aircraft (with full pitch ability) and fly it like a plane.

then you bring the aircraft closer to the ground and hover again, pushing joystick forward/ down key to set her down safley on the ground.

this is what i thought might work, can it be done? making this work whould pave the way for tons of new mods like an eventual Star Wars Mod for instance.

Adios// Tokfan.

UkiTakuMuki, that's the kind of thing i was thinking aswell.

sort of a future aircraft but that i flyies like a harrier.

However i am also very interested in getting a TC started, one very very different from the original battlefield:1942 (except for the action involved ofcourse)

i was also thinking of a sort of "Fantasy" world TC... mostly consentrating on ships "big ol' 1600 th century type sailships with lots of cannons"

this could de done very well with authentic details making it kind of realistic... BUT by making ot fantasy there whould be the ability to implement aircraft as well... "think final fantasy"

i know this this could quite easily be done with new models and som coding... though the reality freaks whould complain.

what do you think?
