Update:
formerly known as Seaplane Base Sport Parking (SBSP), which is no longer possible due to new surface-interaction-physics implemented with the 1.029 update, this thread is now generally dedicated to landings within confined/restricted spaces. Ideas, photos and vids as evidence to your claim to fame go here ;=)

—————————————————


you can not deny it, it is the new trend-sport

so I thought we need to make a competion thread, about landing on the wooden planks of the seaplane base. So far, FredGreen is leading in weight and style…


post your attempts here! Don´t hesitate to call the mechanics. Who can put the heaviest crate in that hangar, who will be the most stylish?


for starters:

impressive entries here, guys.
Sallee gets full points for breguet perfection while sir freddy gets the "innovative approach" award. Andy, now you start giving me ideas, maybe we can even more "grind" the W12 skateboard-style over the woods.. gotta try that.



sidenote:
has anyone yet managed a good touchdown on trains or trucks? I think it might be possible, but sofar I only have produced woodsplinters…

RoF community gets given a water plane.
Uses it to park on a wooden pier.

Edward Gale FTW! Andy gets an 8.5 for artistic interpretation and Fred Green is leading in the "optimism beyond the call of duty" category with the attempt in the Gotha. Nice touch dropping a bomb on the Pier too Fred :S!:

Alright alright, you've proved your point, now here's a challenge, land it, THEN take off again from the pier. Enjoy.

Already tried it with an Albie, it's impossible because you will always fall into the water :cry:

Yup - it can't be done because the pier isn't really 'solid'. Like the bridges and buildings in RoF, anything landing on it drops through it eventually. Weird physics, and I'm not sure why it is done that way, though it may simplify collision modelling somehow.

True you can't land on the pier and then take off from it … but you CAN land on the pier and take off again next to the pier…errrm! if you've put enough fuel in your plane :lol:

Apologies for nearly proving my point and for the low light (meant to set the time so I could fly off into the sunset. Moonlight would've been fine but I ran out of juice… JUST :x )



Really couldn't be bothered to try again as anyone who watched this all the way through will appreciate sorry!

Credit to Heyluno13 for Bandycam :S!:

P.s. The last image reminded me of something. I have a house in Loughborough on the Leicestershire/Nottinghamshire border. And next week I have been invited to play a game of golf (sorry yanks!…Wey O wey O wey owey…Oo Wey Oo Oh wey Oo O wey!!!) at a course in the nearby village of Gotham (not so nearby as I'm living in London ATM!)

This village is the origin of the name 'Gotham city' of New York and Batman fame (though the locals pronounce it 'Goat-ham' or 'Go-tum') allegedly because they tried to avoid King Johns taxes by appearing to be a vllage of lunatics and idiots!!! (A different tactic to Robin Hood)

They apparently achieved this by many means…Grazing cattle on their roofs, drowning eels in water and building hedges around Cuckoos so they couldn't get away (their failiure at the last was put down to them not building the hedge high enough!

Anyway they also tried to fish the moon from a pond which reminded me of the last image of my vid :lol:

P.P.S. I've had time to patent the 'RoF Seaplane duckwalk' so beware :ugeek:

P.P.P.S. I Know it's "Ole'" but on the Nottingham (strangely renamed after Snottingham…'King Snots peoples home' ) Leicestershire, Derbyshire border you may understand why it's not Hispanic perfect!!! :lol:

Only kidding :lol:

so sir Freddi definatly wins in the category "patience" and "time available alone in the dark" ;=)


I had a funny occurence the other day:

while trying to park the D8 in a quickmission, the ai w12 followed me in and bested me at parking.. So even the AI is competing here, unfortunatly I wasn´t recording

Love to see the film of AI trying to land on a pier and park in a hanger :lol:

Unfortunately you weren't recording :(

I'll rerecord landing a W12 in a hangar from a pier, without significant damage and (with enough fuel) relaunching it (This time in sunlight :D )!!!…if you can rerecord an AI W12 beating you to a crashlanding in a seaplane hangar :lol: :lol: :lol:

I could not reproduce that ai-parking event, I guess It was a one-of-kind-chance thing, the ai W12 was damaged and chasing my D8, you see the mixture bar in the mini instruments, so I failed to park, but the ai did not..

Well, I got something else to offer: all the training paid off, as I made my first parking coming from real combat with a broken engine and holes in the floats..

Saw the mini bar….think that was what you said!!! Hate you guys who can put music to your flying…Great music.Good film ….Now 20 minutes of 'Fuel' and effort (Royalties to SirFreddie Corp.) would have seen you in the air again…

putting music in the vids is no big secret… There is a lot of old stuff that is fortunatly free to use without rights-hassle…

there are several sites like this:

http://freemusicarchive.org/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://freemusicarchive.org/

hint: the category "old time/historic" on those sites

Dear Sport-Parking-Enthusiasts,

since it is 2013 and .029 in effect, the old sport is dead. Long live the new sport!

What new challenges and astonishing landing grounds can we discover with the new year and the new phyiscs? Hereby I´d like motivate all the club members to enter new and exciting ideas for the benefit of the sporting community.

sincerly,
your Zebra (out of hunting season)

Sadly, the piers and breakwaters seem to be too rough for landplanes, from what I can tell. The sandbank southwest of Clacton-on-Sea isn't much of a challenge (though an online mass rally there might be fun), and neither are the beaches below the Dover cliffs (presumably modelled at low tide). I'm sure that if we look around, there are some tight spots for both seaplanes and landplanes to squeeze into though. I'll keep my eyes peeled.

I have an idea. Land atop the cliffs of dover, and see how slowly one can roll off the edge and still pull up before hitting the bottom. ;)

since the cliffs are also added 3d objects they appear to be of the same physics as buildings, piers etc. I was simply not able to land or taxi on them, near dover I simply stuck in the air.
