Iconic WWII allied medium bomber
Thanks for pointing me out
BaiDu(Chinese Wikipedia)Sucks lol
You have the English to thank for that.
Let's not discount the work of our Pennsylvania boys
My computer has been here since phym was invented. Ha ha ha!
Fair enough, although I was referring to the concept of a computer leading to the development of one. You cannot have a chicken without a prior egg:
Charles Babbage (1791-1871), computer pioneer, designed the first automatic computing engines. He invented computers but failed to build them. The first complete Babbage Engine was completed in London in 2002, 153 years after it was designed.
He invented computers but failed to build them. - I am aware of this.
A similar situation to the aeroplane:
On December 17, 1903, Wilbur and Orville Wright made four brief flights at Kitty Hawk with their first powered aircraft. The Wright brothers had invented the first successful airplane. The Wrights used this stopwatch to time the Kitty Hawk flights.
The majority was copy and pasted.
welcome to the B25 Mitchell thread, where we talk about computer history
ah yes, on-topic
And aeroplanes if you read the whole post. Perhaps you should have replied to someone who was only talking about computers like some people above my comment. Joking is far more off topic. Anyway, a good plane.
I'm going to disagree here. The first programmable, physical, and turing-complete computer (ENIAC at the University of Pennsylvania) isn't the first computer ever devised, but it's the first computer that humans could actually use and interact with.
Saying that Babbage invented the computer is like saying that the car was invented by the first person to think, "What if you took a carriage, removed the horses, and made oil explode inside of a metal block to turn the wheels?"
Karl Benz invented the car because he actually made the the car. American scientists invented the computer because they made the first computer.
Products can't exist without ideas, but what good are ideas if they're not put into practice?
Perhaps I should've quoted multiple other posts but cba to do it to be honest, as it still applies to you either way. Can't see what all this stuff has to do on a mod's thread which is meant to be used mainly for feedback and discussion about the mod.
Indeed, I am going to agree that the first computer was made in Pennsylvania; however, Charles Babbage did invent the first computer. If we look up the Oxford languages definition of the verb 'invent', it comes up with:
gerund or present participle: inventing
create or design (something that has not existed before); be the originator of.
"he invented an improved form of the steam engine"
We see here that the definition of inventing is to design the object in question. 'Charles Babbage designed the first automatic computing engines. He invented computers but failed to build them.' - From my prior reply.
In this case then, the first aeroplane, similarly to the computer was originally designed by a British fellow called John Stringfellow - albeit being called an 'Aerial steam carriage'. These were then put into practice by Americans on December 17, 1903 (Wilbur and Orville Wright) and at the University of Pennsylvania in 1945 (ENIAC) - as you state.
--- Post updated ---
It is a thread about a plane. My posts contain references to plane history so perhaps it is not as off topic as you state. What is more off topic are your complaints about my posts. If they are indeed too off topic then I am certain that a moderator will remove them.
Joelvb, are there any progress updates? I am particularly interested in how this is going.
I love this mod, the only problem I have with it is that the landing gear make wired suspension noises when you fold them up.
thats just a bug. we all have it so i cant say its a good idea to try to fix it yourself
I don't know how but thanks anyway
Okay can anyone who actually knows how to do it upload a fix for this landing gear bug? Cheers.
Only reasons for not fixing it at the moment are that I already have a completly new landing gear jbeam.
I just don´t have a lot of time atm.
Just wondering, as a long time user of this mod, will there ever be a patch for the water instability glitch? It begun right after the update which added the extra liveries a while back.
Hopefully, as I am redoing all jbeam. Maybe not all of it, but most of it.
The biggest instability was the main landing gear and that is already changed.
Water instability will be always a factor in beamng drive, fast impacts on water amplifies instabilities of vehicles. Getting some parts as stiff as you like it, it is needed to go to the limit of the engine, knowing when it is stable and when not. It is sometimes very hard to find the best way. It was never intended to be an aircraft simulator, keep that in mind, the forces are a lot different on an plane than a car
cough cough negative density water
Thats fine, take ur time. This is probably my fav beamng mod. Hope eventually this gets updated! Good luck sir.
Arent you a little late to the party?
