    I wanted a pilotless drone target that would fly a pre-programmed flight path, to be used as a target for a new truck-mounted SAM battery I've been tinkering with.
    So I created a simple vizzy program that flies @crazydl’s incredibly fast and maneuverable DLJ-1 fighter jet. Using the DLJ-1’s pilotless drone variant, the DLQ-1™, it follows the pre-programmed flight path that turned out to be accurate enough that, if you want to create a pile of drones, you could make a pile as large as your computer can handle. My Mac's limit is apparently seventeen, at least with shadows set to high and realtime reflections enabled.
    I flew all seventeen flights in real time (in game). I started late afternoon and flew into sunset.
    The first part of this video is the full vizzy flight path. The rest is the actual creation of the Pile of Drones, in high-speed playback. The authorities, on @Zyvx’s Marshal Cyber Bikes, arrived on site after all DLQ-1’s had piled up.
    Fun fun fun!

    I don’t know why but this kind of reminds me of jets landing on an aircraft carrier

    @Reeseek_Puffs I used the built-in "Screenshot" app that was added to latest version of MacOS Big Sur to capture the clips in this video. Compared to other capture methods, its pretty basic. No sound, no option to completely hide the cursor, etc. For this video I knew I was gonna set it to music so sound wasn't an issue and I just made sure to keep the cursor out of view.
    I also use Snagit 2020 to capture video with sound. Depending on what i'm trying to capture, the frame rate takes a hit.
    The last way I capture is on my iPad, using the iOS screen recorder. I don't use the iPad to record video much anymore.
