I just thought that the sky-dome method of rendering a section of scenery was so cool that I had to post this pic of what the Earth looks like from more than 28,000 m.

How long to attain that altitude Tsisqua?

I always have just enough fuel to arrive at the scene of my crash.

Nice photo Tsisqua.


While the Komet can indeed fly high, what is interesting is that the chase plane that took the photo is the D9 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

You know, I never timed the ascent, but it had to be at least ten minutes.


Ahem . . the D9 was already up there.

Since I only play offline there is never the need but now you got me wanting to go fire up a climber just to see that view.

Most fun on onwhine summer 4 map.

Me~163 has about ~8 minutes fuel (in FB) and after taking off I got it up to ~50km altitude after running out and gliding a wee bit more up. Also around 50km the landscape grafix is replaced with the bleh grey color you see when you sink underwater, so the distant planet becomes water planet just like planet Water in season 3 LEXX. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Planet Water, with Planet Fire in the sky...

Of course you can start in flight at 10km altitude in QMB or start at ~14km in FMB. Or just use unlimited fuel but then Oleg will strangle another kitten so please think of the kittens.

From even higher up, it turns all black. I don't have a birds eye view pic, but I have a good picture...check out the altitude.

didnt think the Komet could go that high. I though after its fuel ran out could only reach about 15km.

UH OH!! looks like our FB Komet is overmodelled...lol!
