Those Magnificent Men [r006]

This version adds some new features:

Clouds! They don't do much, but they obscure your view hiding birds and other planes, so it may be worth taking a detour.
Keys! W,A,S & D keys can now be used for in-flight control to help the lefties of the world.
Economy! Stock prices are now based on stock levels and stock levels adjusted in real-time producing a more realistic economy.
Passengers! Becomes a sort of one-man easyJet; but with vampires; and set in 1920.

The flying and airfield parts have also been tarted up by adding a map-fold effect to the background sprites and a shadow effect to the birds, clouds and aircraft. It doesn't do much, but I think it looks nicer.

R006 also adds some more parts for you to use in the designer area:

  • A small delta tail,
  • A small bat-style wing
  • An assortment of body parts (small, large and interconnecting) enabling you to carry passengers.

The shot below shows an example small passenger plane.


As hinted by the image above, there is now the possibility of carrying passengers. This is now possible through the Job Centre and the passenger jobs are identified by the passenger symbol on the job sheet.
