Retractable landing gear that can be customized in the following ways:

  • Resizable support/strut length
  • Customizable suspension
  • Customizable deployed angle letting the player decide how far away it extends from the craft and how far forward or backward it extends.
  • Resizable wheel radius and thickness
  • Option to toggle retractable on/off. Retractable landing gear would include a stowage bay that resizes to accommodate the landing gear.
Suggestion Done Fixed in 0.7.3.4

    @MateiDuta Yeah that would be cool especially if we wanted to make something sci fi

    Will this have landing gear that folds inwards like the wing landing gear? @AndrewGarrison

    Could this include highly customisable landing legs for landing on planetary bodies, because while the current lading legs are cool, they provide no suspension and are only useful for specific things.

    Please include skids. X-15, Dream Chaser, SpaceShip2... all of these use one or more landing gear that is meant to slide rather than roll.
    Plus, ski-planes for landing in snow.

    Would be also cool if we could adjust whether/how much the wheels can turn.

    It would also be useful to decide how many wheels are on one assembly.

    @Klosskopf I'm suffering from this now :(
    I think I'm doing something wrong, but hinges and pistons are not working for me with a heavy SSTO. They explode as soon as I launch.

    I don't think, that is a must have. Its way more fun to build your own landing gear with hinges and pistons. Though a start angle for hinges would be usefull, not only for landing gear purpose

    @AstronautPlanes Modding support will come a bit later. Things are changing so much that mods would break quite often, so we are waiting until the API settles a bit before releasing mod tools. It should be quite a bit easier to work with than SP when it is ready.

    But Andrew, why you don't add them, you are the developer! (and how I can create a mod for SR2, cause I have unity now)
