Could someone drop this suggestion to Aerosoft (Dante, maybe youself):

I have no problem with the time line and staged release, I can live with the price also.

But it would be nice, after having bought the two first digital packages, to get a boxed version for cheaper. Digital download for me is okay as an interim solution, but for long term storage of a sim I might be playing many years, a box (and pressed DVD) is the best option.

With the current model, this is simple a very lacking option. I'm sure Aerosoft could figure a way out to give a discount on boxed product to those with valid keys for the previous two stages?

Or complex ground positions (eg. dug in around a building)?

If there is no rocket dispersion, the ground targets are a few buildings or vehicles (which don't react to being attacked like in DCS) - then I could obviously go back to the ThirdWire series or Jane's Fighter's Anthology for that matter. wink Right?

All I really care about is mud moving and COIN you see...


Avimimus, infantry (not static) is already implemented in the Betas. Although now they just move to pre-defined waypoints, no duck for cover or other stuff you expect from infantry units, but this gonna change in release or at least in an update after. They will surely shot at you! Small arms fire all the time wink So, no worries about missions against stuff that don't react to being attacked. Yes, they're already animated (walk cycles).

About rocket dispersion, I believe our lead programmer will add this feature, since we had also dispersion in the airplane's guns - it should be a similar implementation. About multiple types of warheads, we have to research to see what the standard RN rocket pod used in 1982 was up to. We're just getting a real Pucara pilot onboard as advisor on Pucara side of things so we might ask this for him about the rocket pods used by the Pucara and available warheads.

RSColonel_131st,

You may drop this suggestion on the Aerosoft JT forum. All customers suggestions are welcome and Aerosoft is very open with the customers, as you can see in this post.


Josh Echo: not sure, this is up to the publisher to decide if it's worth.

Please tell me that's a mistake.


If you think about it, its no different than the DCS,FSX,FPS game. Think of it as expansion packs.

Excellent! Thanks for the reply! Consider me a nearly definite buyer of the boxed version (similar opinion to RSColonel_131st).

If you guys can capture 70% of the feel of a Rook's ground attack in Lockon FC I'll be happy as an unfried duck!

The last statement at the aerosoft website was that they messed up and will not give another release date (wich was dumb thing to do in the first place; imho they dont have a clue when it comes out) but it should be a matter of weeks not months (as we hadent heard this before).
I will not hold my breath and bought the SF2 series and FC2 instead.

Its a very small development team who are probably working hard on finishing the product. It would be nice for Aerosoft to give an update on progress though, even their forums are devoid of any recent updates to the project. Just a "still on target" or "working hard on finishing it" would be nice, its tough to live in an instant gratification world and then not get the gratification!


I've got a bad feeling about this.....

It's not a glorious example on communication management by Aerosoft.

Hate to be right!
The whole game seems to be a lame duck!
No new screenshots, no new videos, no news at all.
Imho JT is DOA!

Geez, give them a break. Jet Thunder is a complex simulation and will take time to develop. Just like Cliffs of Dover. Just like DCS:A-10C.

Don't assume they're not working their asses off just because <*gasp!*> you don't get screenshots every week. It will be released, but until then there's no point in showing off half-baked features and describing incomplete code. It only sets the wrong expectations and shines a bad light on Work In Progress.

Don't know who decided to announce those ridiculous release dates, but it looks like they've learned their lesson.

Come on man its not all over yet. We're all used to big time devs with big time studios, lets call this dead when it actually is dead.
