Post news RSS Super Aircraft Contest Winner

The winner of the contest that asked the community to submit their own designs is finally announced. Were you expecting this one or it was a surprise?

Posted by on


The Super Air contest ended almost exactly a month ago.
For those who don’t know, it was a contest for the community to submit their own designs for a super aircraft to be added in the game.
The contest itself was widely successful and congratulations to all the participants for sending such awesome designs.
For anyone that missed this contest, I highly recommend you to take a look at these great pieces in the forum.

But as for the entries, it was very hard to select a winner. If possible I would simply just add them all, however to follow the rules of the contest and to not impact the development schedule, only one will be selected to be included in the release.

It was mentioned that the winner would be thanked in the game credits, however after seeing such great results I believe all al the entries should be thanked. (Everyone that participated, please send me a private message with your real name, or I’ll contact you later)

However, while all the designs would have been very interesting to have in the game, it is unfortunate that it will not possible to add them in time for the release, but don’t worry, their addition is something to look forward in future.

Also before announcing the winner, (if you haven’t looked down already), the contest was so interesting that I’m considering the possibility in the future make other contest for other type of units.

Now the winner, this was tough, but thanks to the Iceberg staff in helping by sharing their opinion, the following result was decided by choosing the design the most votes.
And it this one:


If you haven’t guessed already it is the S-24A Nigthhound made by KnX


Thanks KnX for submitting such interesting design, here is in the usual reveal:


And this was the submitted entry:


Also thanks to everyone who participated as well.
But for everyone else, what do you think of the winner? It was your favorite? Or you were betting on other design?
Stay tuned, more reports will follow.

Congratulations KnX. While I wasn't as interested in this design, in hindsight, it was the most unique along with some of Hat's designs, which made it a clear contender for a "super" plane; an airplane with features that would out-contend conventional aircraft. Now that it's modeled, I appreciate the design a bit more.

I was betting originally on Hat's XTF-01 Scylla, IbizenThoth's VS.133 Eagle Ray, and of course the contest winner, KnX's design.

Again congrats, and hope to see how this fella will dominate in this game.

I was betting on 'Hat's and Xpand's glorious design too.

But hey, congrats to KnX.

Congratulations to KnX! His design was one of the major contenders, in my opinion.

I'd also like to see a tally of the votes for each entry, that'll certainly be interesting for feedback.

Also by your statement in regards to the rest of the designs: "but don’t worry, their addition is something to look forward in future."

Does that hint at more releases for the runner ups?
