hang gliding
« on: April 08, 2008, 12:23:58 AM »
I'm interested in making a working hang-glider, but don't know much about scripting or/and vehicles.

The plan is once we find it's possible is to teach the construction of a hang glider and basic lessons in flight :)

What a brilliant idea! This should work, maybe having a look at the Terra E-chute (parachute)

I can see that being fun...

Unsure who to ask on the scripting though... Marko?? Decimus??

The Terra E-Chute is very good. But I tihnk hang gliding would be better.... oooh... James Bond machinema!  :P

I think it'd be easy to do using the terra e-chute script, but not being in world I can't say! :P

Ah, but hang gliding you can go upwards as well, you can catch the wind layer things. That could be hard. Is that possible inworld?? :-\
but with the E-Chute you can go downwards, but with hang gliders, you can go sideways too.  :-\

You can go sidewards with the terra e-chute script - I'm guessing a small addition to it would allow you to go upwards as well.

You can go sideways, but as Vibia says, you do still go down albeit slower. Also, the terra e-chute you freefall until about 100m, and then the parachute opens, so you might need a bit more tweaking.

I'm guessing nobody's even checked to see if you can mod the script
