Reddit Contest #69, Aerial Refueling

#1



These seaplanes were built for Reddit contest #69
The contest's prize is a 10 USD game on Steam. Because I'm not interested in any other games, I'll buy Blitsplatapus[www.besiegedownloads.com], a brilliant tank builder Besiege if I win. And that's why I named the planes "Blits" and "Platapus"

Float plane "Blits" on Steam & besiegedownloads
Flying boat "Platapus"on Steam & besiegedownloads
Aerial Refueling Mini Game on Steam & besiegedownloads

488 blocks, recommended time scale 50%

Tips:
1. Play this in the old sandbox because it has no world boundaries
2. Let Platapus take off first (camera helps)
3. Fly high and let go, it'll fly straight and level
4. Chase the Platapus with Blits (switch camera)
5. Open the fuel cap, extend the probe and turn on probe guider while chasing
6. Make use of the Blits' throttle, brake to get distance for a clean retry
7. Grabber sound = Connect successfully!
8. End refueling: Release the probe first
9. Get away from the Platapus, then retract probe and close fuel cap
10. Fly free!
