RealFlight FS1 1.11 - Realistic BtRL like flight physics for the FSPort
Using Sushi's velocity mod and the BtRL ships as a template, I created RealFlight physics, an attempt to add "Realistic" inertia into FreeSpace. Since I always play campaigns in chronological order and are now at FS1, I created the mod for the FSport.

and here it is Version 1.11, should work fine!
Version 1.11B Without the $Glide.

changes:
1.1:
  • added the Silent Threat ships
  • Added the leech cannon
  • weapons is also an modular table now

1.11:
  • Fixed Weapons

1.11B (fork)
  • removed glide



Realflight for FS2

Wow, already done?

We could recruit you. We need someone able to add BtRL style physics to Steadfast.

Re: RealFlight FS1 - Realistic BtRL like flight physics for the FSPort
I accidantly placed the table files at a wrong location, and therefore the FS2 version was used (multimod!), when I corrected this, it didn't work correctly

I will have to fix this.

Would it be possible to enable these physics for say, one mission of a campaign? Or is that an option that would have to be added to FRED?

You would need a different shiptable for that, or do stuff like they did in FS1, duplicate entries, with inertia and without.

Ok, I'll wait your work to be complete...or you need testing?

Version 1.11B released:

Download it here
this version has not the $Glide options, but for the rest it is the same, 1.11 is still supported.

Re: RealFlight FS1 1.11 - Realistic BtRL like flight physics for the FSPort
Also *bump*, because gameplay benefits more from a mod with several changes than from just $glide tbm.  Anyone have these files stored somewhere?

Re: RealFlight FS1 1.11 - Realistic BtRL like flight physics for the FSPort
thanks a heap. further investigation yielded more details about the implementation of glide. these will be most helpful.
