A module to add failures
It would be a pre flight page. You could select multiple parts and set the reliability from 100%-0% and the part could explode, fail and not move, or just completely fall off. They would be selected at random based on your selection. But it would add a realistic feeling to the game. You never know when your going to make it back to base safely or put it in the dirt.47 votes
Tailhook and Arresting gear for carrier landings
I'd love to land some of my slightly mad designs on the aircraft carriers for fun. VTOL is something I can't use for many aircraft designs but an tailhook and arresting gear would allow some really fun challenges.142 votes
On screen Air brake button
It would be great for the mobile version to have an on screen airbrake button to let you drop some speed without having to reduce your throttle. Similar to how the Rortos flight engine based games let you control throttle independent of the airbrakes.
*I know airbrakes can be assigned to VTOL control but 90% of the time I want the VTOL controlling one of the rotators.1 vote
Orbit camera on pc with out grabing a part
An annoying thing with sp on pc (and probably osx as well) is that the button to allow the mouse to orbit the camera is the same as the button used to sellect and move a part, so if i want to orbit/rotate the camera i have to find a spot on my screen that doesnt have a part near it (good luck if you are building inside of part of your plane (ie bomb bay, inside of the cab of a truck) it is really quite frustrating, especially knowing it is a supper simple fix (add rotate camera, pan camera, select part, as option in the control menu)

make an auto stability system
A block that would make it so that a plane can be slightly be unstable, and fly in a straight line, like the S.A.S. system in kerbal space program, meaning people could make supermanueverable aircraft.7 votes
Air traffic controler
Ok so there should be a challenge where you start at the new beta airport and an "air traffic controler" tells you what to do. So you would use a passenger plane and follow the instructions like in a real life airport. Maybe even have other planes parked in the hangers or on the taxi ways tomadd some detail.2 votes
Could go under the HUD. So people can do decent turns.2 votes
No seconds carry fuel, or resizable fuel tanks for drop tanks.5 votes
Keep the crashed planes & change the terrain when a plane crashes
Like you can keep the past three crashed planes so you can see were you went wrong or it may look much cool if your recreate a famous crash or something like that. The other thing is that if the plane crashes on land you could make a hole of were the plane crashed like making a line if the plane crashed its right wing or whatever it makes the line in which the way it crashed4 votes
VTOL balance adjustments
I noticed a weird thing with VTOL's in vertical position, they naturally fly backwards more...Its also fiddly to place VTOL engines because of them not 'snapping' into position. I would love SOME changes to make VTOL's easier to balance. Maybe 'Ballast tanks' which can be set between manual, or automatic balancing, so you can actually make a balanced VTOL with a nice design!7 votes
Electricity (FOR SIMPLEPLANES)
Ok, I really want an electric engine, and other electric equipment peices, then ways to supply electricity, including but not limited to, batteries. Ion tanks. Solar panels. Turbines (no I don't mean big tall towers, I mean just the propellor bit, you can have some propellors feeding energy to motor propellors, brilliant when you've started moving).32 votes
Better control surfaces
Make control surfaces bindeable to more controls, like the VTOL-slider, throttle and so on. Also make it possible to bind two controls to one control surface so elevons, flaperons and such can be possible!13 votes
edit planes after updload
Allow plane owners to edit the descriptions of airplanes after they have been uploaded (shared) on the main site.
Some of the planes that I have uploaded have typos in their descriptions.3 votes
Add an option to the airplane mirroring which allows you to delete one half of the airplane.
It would make working on planes with internal mechanisms (bomb bays, hidden engines, landing gear assemblies, etc) much easier.6 votes
If you have something behind your engine it will be thrown away at ludicrous speeds (not faster than light speed), and if you have a jet engine inside of your fuselage, your aircraft will be obliterated.20 votes
Clouds at 3000 feet, Slow motion, Sonic booms, Contrails...
gives better game experience.. and Gives us the cinematic guys to make cooler videos,1,653 votes
Activator groups for control surfaces
So when you press G for gear you could have flaps deploy, etc.22 votes
Make a crankshaft like round building block that will not interact with other blocks unless specified by the builder. Building block found be cylindrical in that and could be turned by the motor in the last update. And I believe the motor should have unlimited rotational ability so you can use it as a larger propeller design or make helicopters that have spinning blades that can lift the build object.1 vote
An option to invert airfoils to produce downforce instead of lift, like a car's spoiler. Many possible applications.7 votes
