NOTE: This game requires an iPhone 4s / iPad 2 / iPad Mini 1/ iPod 5 or better.
Build airplanes by snapping parts together, designing wing sections, and attaching engines. At any time, you can strap yourself into the cockpit and see how it flies with realistic physics. If you're not in the mood for building, over 250,000 airplanes are available to download for free.
You have the tools you'll need to bring any airplane to life. Snap parts together to build your airplane's body. Place engines to add thrust. Design and attach wings and then strap yourself into the cockpit and see how it flies.
Over 250,000 airplanes are available to download for free from SimplePlanes.com. Find anything from old WW2 bombers to next-generation fighters to sci-fi spacecraft. You can upload your own airplanes and rise through the ranks from a bronze builder to a gold level builder.
DYNAMIC FLIGHT MODEL
Flight simulation at its finest. Every little change you make in the designer impacts how the airplane flies. Weight distribution, thrust, lift, and drag are all calculated continuously while flying. Parts can break off in spectacular fashion while flying due to over-stress or by hitting something. The fun won't stop there though. You can keep on flying even with a missing wing if you've got the skills.
Use all available parts to build airplanes with no restrictions. The sky is the limit. Literally.
Climb into the cockpit of one of your custom aircraft and see how it does in the challenges. Land on aircraft carriers, dodge surface-to-air missiles, race through courses, and so much more.
Tutorials will help players learn the basics of real airplane design and the considerations that need to be taken when airplanes are made.
* Added Glass Fuselage part.
* Added "Smooth Front" and "Smooth Back" options to fuselages.
* Added settings option to run at 60 FPS
* Added support for the iOS Files App.
* Added an explosionScale XML attribute to bombs and missiles (includes torpedos).
* By popular demand, allowed blueprint images to be shown while taking craft screenshots for an upload.
* Fixed an issue with connections that could lead to craft not loading in the designer - if you have any saved craft that would fail to load, try loading them again now.

Great! Room for improvement.
For the cockpit I would suggest that you make it where you can see inside the cockpit from the pilot's seat and use those controls. Make a Bay Area where you can fix the plane. Diagnostic section and repair bay. For the bay equipment Oil, wrenches, fuel, fuel stations. I'm not saying you should make it like a repair game but make it more interesting. Okay, let's be frank. I see a huge hunk of potential for this game but whether you see it my way or yours I'm going to throw out my ideas. Okay, for starters some of the ships are horrible and don't work well. Instead of ships make a basic frame for cars, tanks and engines such as, racing engines. Make fuel for the cars and and planes. Have a model of some plane engines. Have us take apart and put them together while doing an oil change. Make a section where we can design an engine and test it.
A grateful customer! P.S. y'alls team does great! Keep up the hard work!!!
Excellent airplane sandbox!
I've had SimplePlanes for ages it seems, and am thoroughly impressed with every new update the game offers! While being similar to games like Kerbal Space Program, it has plenty of terrain to fly over, lots of challenges, and literally anything can be created in this game with enough practice. You can make jets, helicopters, seaplanes, passenger aircraft, boats, cars, and even trains if you feel like it! With over 300 hours of playtime, and over a year since downloading this, I would definately say I've gotten my money's worth. The website adds tons of downloadable aircraft if you're not an expert plane builder. My only possible complaints might be with the low quality of the water, but it isn't much to complain about. To anyone on the fence about getting a game like this, I think it's sure to be well worth it for any aviation enthusiasts, and fans of plane engineering!
Well, I got this game over a year ago and Your very impressed. SP is a very fun sandbox game that you can build almost anything in. The editor is very easy to use and the game comes with a wide variety of parts, weapons, and other gadgets like parachutes and countermeasure dispensers. You may start off not building very well in the beginning, but you will eventually get the hang of things. For more help, you could also join the online community. On the website, there are literally a million planes that you could download and play with for free! The other thing I would like to note is the variety of things you could build or download. You can build planes, tanks, cars, motorcycles, rockets, ships, and a lot more. Overall, O would say that this game is well worth the $5.
