Back in ~2018 there was a plane designer that had all the updated equipment, like trading kits, advance radio, and the likes---I can't seem to locate it though (let alone know if it's even in existence anymore)---does anyone happen to know where that might be?

I stress this was *not* hotmod (waybackmachine confirms this as of their last archive of hotmod in 2019)---this one had a little visualizer for how many slots various planes had and you could click to add/remove things, where upon it'd show the plane's range, cargo slots, CKPH, stall speeds, and the likes, from the lonely junker to the spectre and mantis.

I can't recall if it was buried in one of the threads or I stumbled upon it somewhere, but it was terribly useful for testing out various plane configs.

I'm wondering if it's this: http://vivisector.org/junk/SR/Newmod.xlsx but this doesn't seem to lead anywhere, anymore, and I'm not even positive this is/was it to begin with.

All of the tools that I know about have been retired.
:fear:

Accordingly, the links to them have been removed from the Forum (well, technically, I've just hidden them).
That's probably why you can't find them.
:drool:

Was it this one?

Kidding, kidding... check out that perfect bolo though (third time's the charm). :remylove:

Hmm, any chance of PM'ing me a few of them? Would really like to find the this particular plane maker---it was super simple; didn't really have flashy graphics (if I recall correctly anyway). Again, it wasn't hotmod. Only other shot I can think of is potentially finding Amira.

Sadly, no--it was very simple; you just selected a plane from the drop down, then selected the upgrades you wanted.

It included the more recent (2.8) plane kits, "new" upgrades (like advanced radio) and plane stats.

It's possible that the Skybrary lists more, but three tools I remember are:

Hotmod at http://hotmod.yolasite.com/
Mechanic at http://lobachevsky.net/mechanic/
The Skyrates Garage at http://skyrates.jusque.net/garage/ (Kathryn made several "toys" and perhaps one of those is the one you are remembering, but everything at jusque.net 404s currently.)

Thanks! I think it may be the garage Kathryn made--I'm surprised it was still up in early 2018; I'll try to see if I can track her down.
