Fighter Jet Improvements

#1
This Mod's aim is to bring better balance to fighter jet type craft that are being built closer to scale vs their real world counter parts. The first addition this mod brings is new Small Custom Jets. These new jets have all the customization features of the full size counter parts with certain balances in place.

Important!!!! I am a sucky coder, like bottom of the barrel, so this mod will not have any scripts involved, everything will be cloned items that already exist in game with heavy modifications to structures, costs, ect. These are things that can be done in-game mod editor. Some meshes are not vanilla but were originally borrowed from the base game, no one's mod were used in the making of this mod. Note from v0.51+ contain meshes that are either by myself, my brother. 3rd party meshes will be used in future version so do ask about the mesh before you barrow it for you mod if I left one in by mistake that does not have its license.

Current release Features: Dimensions are Length Width Height!
Jet Controller 1x1x1 and 1x1x2
Jet Exhaust 1x1x1 and 1x1x2
Jet Intake 1x1x1 and 1x1x2
Jet Compressor 1x1x1 and 1x1x2.
Jet Combustion Chambers in v0.57 now allow for connecting to from all sides. After testing in campaign they are balanced due to fuel consumption rate.
Rubber Blocks for all base shapes! (no wing blocks)

Current version for use is V0.41 any other versions are experimental at this time. Dimensions on Jets will not change unless the player base thinks they need nerfing or buffing.




Version v0.2: Custom Jets and wing blocks added
Version v0.3: Rebuilt and fully functional again. Working on the wing based sensors. Even build jet combustion chamber changed to 1x1x2 (LWH) and has only 2 side connections for fuel injection instead of 4 (each face) like normal jets. I am aware you can currently mix parts this will be resolved later. Also there are now wing blocks for alloy now.

Current Version v0.41: Added rubber blocks for all dimensions for vanilla blocks, no rubber wing blocks.

Experimental Branch Released Version v0.57: Composite Blocks with alloy stats and rubber blocks radar resistance, but cost as much as heavy metal. Currently also contains wing trims to smooth out the wing and even build glass canopy with built in 360 camera.



IMPORTANT, I SEE PEOPLE DOWNLOADING JET AND NOT THE MOD AS WELL. THIS JET WILL NOT FUNCTION WITHOUT THE MOD!!
Attached F-22 is to show case how this mod allows jets to work with NO Exploitation such as spinblock stacking, jet stacking, engine stacking, or resulting to using steam engines and fan power. Fuel cost balances this mod so pay attention to how much fuel you burn!!!! As a side note I did not remmber to mention, this is running 10% thrust in cruise mode. If you load in another jet or disable ACB it will use more power, at max it will fly 180m/s and consume all fuel (44k) in 5mins. At cruise it will last 48mins and cover 1.5x map width. Combat time varies but around 20-30mins.


The newest version uploaded here is 0.57experimental but seems to work in v2.16 and 2.17. There are bugs with mirroring so you may occasionally find a block that did not mirror correctly. When I have PC back will continue working on cleaning up and getting v0.6 ready for full release. This mod will then be discontinued and broken into several parts such as custom jets, wing blocks, and rubber blocks. A new mod will then be under development that focuses on other parts of the game for cosmetics for ships, and I will be working on a campaign friendly missile mod based on the work already done by Gruntmaster and Draba. This will be a small nerf to in the manner that damage will be reduced but so will cost of each missile fired so that in-game faction designs have enough ammo to reload instead of having only one volley. Example of this can be seen with the Falcon of Steel striders.
