[MOD 0.17+] Aircraft Realism

Post by haih_ys »

Extension to the Aircraft mod for Factorio
I noticed the liftoff mod has not been updated for 0.17, so I made my own



Everything can be configured, enabled and disabled from the ingame mod settings

Takeoff and landing

Planes need to reach their set takeoff speed to takeoff, otherwise it will collide into other objects

Slow down too much and the plane will land, colliding into any objects in the way

Realistic turn radius

Widens the turn radius of planes, planes can no longer spin on the spot

Realistic acceleration + braking force

Slower acceleration and braking to feel more like a plane instead of a race car, requiring actual runways to takeoff and land

Realistic debris damage

Rocks, tree stumps and other objects will now damage the plane more on takeoff and landing

Environmental damage

Hitting cliffs and running into water on takeoff and landing will instantly destroy the plane

Jumping out of a flying plane will cause it to crash


Planes emit pollution depending on their fuel type and speed

Plane statistics

Gunship: Medium takeoff, medium maneuverability

Cargo plane: Short takeoff, low maneuverability

Jet: Long takeoff, high maneuverability

Flying fortress: Medium takeoff, high maneuverability
