Simpleplanes update idea
Update name is advanced warfare
frame rate optimizations (or whatever it is you guys do that makes it better)
More weapons (Nuclear bombs and missiles with beautiful explosive sounds and looks, cluster bombs, Self homing bombs, Lock on fire-and-forget bombs, Lock on ground-to-air missiles, Anti-ship missiles, 2 New rocket pod types 1 Having more but smaller rockets 2 Having less but bigger rockets Both rocket pods having a singular rocket weapon part as well, Anti-air gun that can fire flak or explosive rounds, A vulcan part similar to the minigun but with 3 barrels And a new sound And more damage, Napalm bombs, Bunker busters, Mother of all bombs MOAB.
new friendly carrier group,
The USS Dragon. Just like the USS Beast but it has anti-air missiles to defend itself and 2 Full sized battleships guard it. The battleships shoot both flak and bullets at you if you anger them alongside the carriers missiles. The battleships guns can be used in a neat little way. Aim at a target with a targeting pod, press a button, and the battleships will aim at the target and fire 3 full salvos at the target with all their main guns. (The shots should spread out) The carrier group is stationed a few miles away from the jungle island and goes in giant circles around it.
a jungle island 5x bigger than maywar. The island is full of jungle trees and has a few swamps on the outskirts of it, 2 jungle temples that can be explored with a ground vehicle or skilled enough pilot, A few small and mid sized villages, a few spots where a helicopter could land in the jungle, A small enemy base and a large enemy base with an airport, Both enemy bases have anti air tanks guarding them. There's a few enemy bunkers that shoot at you around the small enemy base, they can only be destroyed by a MOAB, Bunker buster, Or nukes. The island has dirt roads that lead around the island and the dirt roads also branch off and go to each of these locations. The island comes with enemies such as: Anti air tanks, And armed convoys of Fuel tankers And Anti air tanks that patrol the island. The island even has its own jungle ambiance. The island should make the player feel isolated when on its ground and shouldnt have a lot of things clustered together (that will help the isolation feel when looking at it in the air) DO NOT ANIMATE THE TREES, THAT WILL CAUSE TOO MUCH LAG, We don't need a maywar fps killer repeat like the windmills caused.
In order to optimize the trees, A system should be made that makes it so that the closer to the ground you are the more detailed but less trees there are and the further away from the ground you are the worse looking the trees but more there are. There should be 3 options for the trees, An option for low quality trees, high quality trees, and no trees (for the severe potato players) and the other option should be a pair of 2 sliders that set the tree render distance for air and the ground.
A friendly military base that is stationed within the island towards the outskirts but also connects to the dirt roads. This base has friendly air defenses guarding it too.
Radar parts. planes and enemies come base with a radar as they always have but these parts will extend their range. Radars have 3 types, One being a radar that goes on ground vehicles, And the other 2 being a plane and helicopter radar. The radars range limitations can be tweaked with overload or part settings and the radar parts only extend the base radars range
Fully customizable tank tracks with tank tread sounds and required to hook up to a tank engine that can be either deisel, gas, or gas turbine, And can have their settings tweaked. (Gas turbine being the best, Diesel being the second best, And gas the worst). Each with their own cool unique sounds.
Actual lights that light the world up.
The ability to freeze the time of day.
Procedural landing gears like in simplerockets 2
FOR REFERENCE ALL AIRCRAFT AND ENEMIES IN SP HAVE RADAR ALREADY BUT THE RADAR PARTS EXTEND THE RANGE.
Adjustable engine vibration and sense of flight effects
List Of New Parts:
Ground vehicle radar
Light up the world lights
Tank engine (3 types in its part settings)
Targeting Pod (For The Battleship Guns)
Self Homing Bomb (locks on to closest target when dropped)
Lock On Bomb (lock on fire and forget)
Rocket Pod 1 (Less rocket bigger rocket)
Rocket Pod 2 (More rocket small rocket)
Singular Rocket 1
Singular Rocket 2
MOAB (IS NOT NUCLEAR JUST BIG)
Procedural landing gear
I know this seems like a lot but this update contains practically 80% of what the simpleplanes community has been wanting. (More weapons, new islands, Radar parts, Tank parts, Procedural landing gears, proper lights.) They'd love this update and it would keep them entertained for a year
Plus after seeing VR pulled off I believe this update isn't that big of a challenge anymore.

This is a great idea and should be looked at by jundroo and added to a future update.
