Make it so that mobile users can take screenshots without the UI in the way.256 votes
We really need glass! i mean like, we always have to build undo the drag to have a cockpit that is see-trough. it would be so cool and useful to have glass! and maby have it break when a bullet goes trough, and have the ability to edit the shape and size the exact way you can with fuselage blocks, and maby even be able to make it hollow or be able to edit the thoughness? would be pretty neat i think!250 votes
When two fuselage blocks overlap, there should be a "cut" option, that allows us to remove one fuselage block, and leave a hole in shape of it in the other one. Useful for making hollow fuselages, windows, concave shapes etc.244 votes
Brighter lights maybe with adjustable brightness. It could be useful for car headlights and other things that require brighter lights.236 votes
As new fuselage-like parts or as option.
Armor: more armor you add to part more resist to damage taken but more weight(like deadweight but with damage resistance). As example - half armored block will weight twice more but can take 4 more shots before destruction.
Glass - fuselage blocks with changable opacity. Great for cocpits, windows and other stuff.236 votes
Lights that actually light up the worldf
Yes, we need lights, not tiny lights that doesn't light up the surrounding area, we need one that does. I've seen it implemented in other Unity games, so it must possible right?
Few possible implementations of this are:
and just lights in general lol

Please add support for custom AI to the mod API, so modders can create their own AI for whatever purposes they may have, such as a special type of race, a mission, to give their Aircraft a bit of personality, and whatever else they think up.211 votes
I HAVE TWO SUGGESTIONS FOR CONTROL SURFACES
MAKE THEM INDEPENDENT OF WING SHAPES. THAT MEANS A DELTA WING CAN HAVE RECTANGULAR CONTROL SURFACES.
CONTROL SURFACES WITH ELEVON AND FLAPERON INPUTS.
The people of SimplePlanes (mainly IOS users) are being stricken of their ability to succeed in an increasingly competitive field of play. Many users are unable to provide the flashy screenshots that PC and Android users are able to. I myself have resorted to using my PC to upload my builds, since I can upload it with screenshots. However, it is essential that we make it easier for IOS users to receive the recognition they deserve. We should also include an option to remove the UI on mobile devices in order to take better screenshots, or install a screenshot button that takes a shot without the UI in the way.
Reason 1: Fairness
In order to level the playing field and give everyone an equal opportunity, we must allow them to provide their best screenshots like all other users.
Reason 2: Attraction
People will be more likely to be attracted to the game if they are able to find success, as all humans, whether they like it or not, are looking for the validation of upvotes and comments on their work. Attractive screenshots mean more popularity, therefore new users are more likely to recommend SP to a friend.
Reason 3: It's just cool
Screenshots are fun. Being able to select a picture from your camera roll and inserting it is a proper showcase of a build you may have spend ages working on, and editing the screenshot itself is just as demanding.
This is why we must provide the same screenshotting opportunities to mobile devices as we do PC players. We don't absolutely need frecam or zoom, but it would be nice to make screenshots look their best. We do, however, need to be able to upload our own screenshots, and take good-quality ones without having to crop the UI out.

I think kraken and desert island should be on mobile but there should be an option to turn them off for devices that can't handle them.188 votes
Make kerbal like pepes for the game
So we can also play as the little pepes188 votes
So, we have miniguns, wing guns, but sometimes we need a howitzer, flak cannon or an autocannon. So, maybe add them to game? Like adjustable tank gun with more damage, howitzer with better range or flak cannon like the one on ww2 destroyers in 1.7.184 votes
Currently in SP, the only way to make ball joint type rotators is to use 3 individual rotators. This is incredibly frustrating for multiple reasons. Using multiple rotators right next to each other often makes weird rotational inertia issues, it's heavy, and it makes the connections really wobbly when you scale down the mass of the rotators, especially on low physics levels.
Adding ball joints will make building complex suspensions systems so much easier, and would be incredibly useful for several functions, aesthetically and functionally.171 votes
This would open up so many possibilities for design. We could have air intakes that blend smoothly into the rest of the aircraft! Wing-root intakes too! It would let us have more intake shapes, and build better replicas! Please make this a feature!167 votes
Currently, propeller engines take an absolute decade to spool up, especially when they have little horsepower, which most propeller planes do. Where a real life plane would take about 1 second to spool up to full power, the SP engines take at least 5!
This makes STOL and precision landings very difficult, and it bothers me very much.
Please devs can you add this in the next update? 🙏166 votes
we should have muliplayer wouldnt that be SOOOO cool you could make your aircraft and press the play multiplayer button so you could play with your freinds! wouldnt that be SOOO cool wait OOF i already said that.158 votes
Tired of scaling, nudging the prop engine parts inside a custom built cover? Tired of managing blur animations moving forward/backwards? Gives just the propeller, no stock mesh for cover, no hubHead Cone. We just need a simple propeller, the rest is up to us to make. Ideally with 2 connection points (one to attach to plane, the second to attach a hubhead/cone). Also an option for turbo-prop sound on/off or a propeller version with both sounds (simple or turbo-prop). This will simplify the construction.158 votes
There has been many times where I've had to almost completely rebuild a boat because the engine/propeller that is supposed to push the boat forward wouldn't move because it was underwater plus it does seem there are geography underwater and I would like to discover it plus it would mean less mod use witch means less lag in some places as well as making it easier for others both noobs and viteran players154 votes
- Don't see your idea?
