Not very interesting from "all new game" perspective, our Argentinian planes would be the same ones that flew in '82... biggrin

We don`t even have the aircraft carrier/s either!
However, it doesn`t take away any of the desire for Jet Thunder to appear in a saleable form at any time in the (hopefully) near future.

Yeap, but there are only 4 (four) of them in the Falklands which by all acounts is a VERY SMALL number.
If I were an Argentinean planning an invasion I would sent a team of Special Forces to sabotage those 4 Typhoons and then game over. Of course the British defending the Falklands could expect such actions but after years and years of peace, "sharp readiness" is usually a "casualty" or overlooked.
What I mean is if the Argentineans managed to pull out a strike that disables/destroys those 4 Typhoons (Special forces raid or perhaps a surprise air attack) this could mean "game over" for the British defending the Falklands...

Yeah, but then we would have to convince the settlers to become Argentinians and be part of the wonderful third world, with disastrous governments, low salaries, HUGE taxes, and an overwhelming feeling of being on your own... That's the biggest weapon for the UK. smile

Yes, I also have no doubts that the Falklands are British by right! I have this oppinion because of some reasons but the main one is that 99,9999999999% of the population WANTS TO BE British (just not to say 100%) and self-determination is the most important right of ANY PEOPLE - But politics a part, one thing is sure: an invasion or invasion force doesn't care a bit about what the local population wants or else Argentina wouldn't have invaded the Falklands in 1982, would it?

Doesn't sound good, but without the details it's a difficult to understand the impact.

That's it, it's the end folks. Last one out, please turn off the lights.

What I'll never understand, is how a project that was marching, slow, but moving forward, all of the sudden gets some financial support and dies! What kind of sh*thead does it take to actually kill a project that was going good BEFORE you assigned resources to it...

Obviously the whole project was a exaggerated from the beginning, plus the devs got lost in their own high anticipation.
I wish they would cut their losses release what they have plus some kind of development kit and let the modders have their way with it and salvage whats left of JT!

Now there's a thought. Maybe they can sell what they have, or open it before time overtakes the engine.

Clearly this project isn't on track as planned here's hoping the team can turn it around and still get this sim out the door! Good Luck JT team!


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

My comments in Red:

"It would be silly to say things are going well with this project.Then we agree Mr. Kok.

But give me a bit of time to sort things out.You've had a year...how long does "sorting out"take? We got serious money in this project and we are still very much aiming for a release. If only because we just like the idea and the people behind it. I love flying a Harrier over the Falklands waiting for some Argentine fighter to show.That does sound awfully fun! Hey, maybe someone should make a game about that.. "

This smells like feature creep induced vaporware.

At the end of the day: Aerosoft is the one who's out the money they invested, Aerosoft is the one who's failing to generate interest because they lack basic knowledge of press release and developer diaries, and Aerosoft will be the one who makes JT "toxic" as an investment from other publishers.

oh, and it appears you have a bit of bark in your teeth Mr. Kok...

I'd rather they kill it. Let someone else come in and take over.
