Before they'd implement/fix this, I would much rather have a more realistic take-off and landing... Inlcuding the distance it takes, the Lazer can takeoff almost instantly.
+1 Agreed totally my friend. Have you noticed how on Titan of a job you can take off while taxing out of the hangar in a HUGE cargo plane before even turning onto a runway? What a joke. Also the dive bomb landing I mentioned in the OP.
Yea and I totally forgot: The flaps suck aswell. I mean, okay, they're not even present in the game, but why have the 747 look-a-like and Shamal (+Luxor) their flaps deployed? Looks like sh*t when flying at high altitude. They could have atleast (not a fan, but it's something) made them work together with the gear. But right now... Just stupid.
You are someone who totally gets where I am coming from, obviously you are a bit passionate about flight and don't like to see it butchered. Lots of people are going to come in here and say we are nitpicking and insult us, but i'm satisfied with this thread at this point since I found atleast one person who gets it.
I'd like to have it so you actually have to line up an approach, not fly perpendicular to the runway and land perfectly while performing a dive and full turn at full speed.
Yea, it's great to see someone else who is concerned about these things. By no means I want a flight simulator in GTA, that's for sure. But, just taking the flaps as example, it would be like a 4-door car where only 2 doors can be opened. It doesn't really affect anything ingame, but is still absolutely bs. Okay, the example may not be the greatest, but it should give other people the idea what I'm talking about.
At the moment you can takeoff after 10 ft, do a loop and end the loop on the tarmac with a safe landing and gears intact. It sucks. Even when I fly "normally" and try to do a smooth and realistic landing, the people in online are always like "man, hurry the f*ck up". Or in the mission where you had to steal the Titan, I first taxied to the runway before taking off. All people were like "da f*ck is wrong with you?". I just hate it, but most people don't really care.
