Wow. That video sure looks impressive. All the little parts seem just "right", the whole choice of colors, dirt, scratches on the cockpit and a sense of speed to match.

Very realistic looking stuff, I dare say even more so than LOMAc (sure runs faster).

Amazingly cool! I am among the throngs who eagerly await release!!!

And it's nice to know that you don't have to design a game to run on a cray supercomputer for it to be pretty.

Now quit posting sweet vids and get back to work!!! lol \:\)

While Steve fix the height code (colision to ground) I did 2 videos testing a located-camera:

of course, this SHAR hover model needs tuning: too strong RCS, specially yaw. And its still lacking all expected effects (heat blur, particles kicking up from ground, foreign objects ingestion ;\)

I just saw the videos of the Harrier hovering and have to say, I am impressed. Any chance of an in cockpit video at some stage?

How would you class your current state of development? (alpha, beta?) And how are the other aircraft coming along?

Great work gents. Really looking forward to handing you some money for this one!

Very good guys, very good. Congratulations.
I see all the videos, but i only see the Harrier, my question is the Mirage III, Pucara, A4Q/B and Super Etendard, are flyable at this moment?

Saludos

Yes, here it is:
http://www.thunder-works.com/transition.zip
uncompress the zip to watch in windows media player

You see the hover from inside cockpit with a bit a sideslip, then I slowly move the nozzles back a bit - you see messages popping up in console text and the nozzle indicator in cockpit moving slightly backwards - I switch to external static camera and attempted a 'bow', a maneuver seem in Harrier airshow displays where the pilot pitch up the nose through RCS while moving nozzles back - the Harrier arcs towards the sky - but I still don't get the hang of it \:\) need more practice (and V/STOL FM need a lot of fine-tuning too)

Pucara is the next step, as it is capable of using the landing strips in current Falklands/Malvinas map. I dare to say we are barely at pre-alpha stage - for beta, we must have the full front-end interface and mission/campaign briefings and all that we don't have now, and also anti-aircraft defense sites working, destroyable terrain statics (buildings etc), complete damage for ships (we will have this soon)

The Pucara will be flying around really soon, a matter of days, from BAM Malvinas (Stanley) and BAM Condor (Goose Green). The A-4, Super Etendard and Mirage will appear more over the islands when we have at least Rio Gallegos ready for them to take-off and landing ;\) In this subject, any photos of Rio Gallegos 1982 (specially airbase runway layout) will be appreciated for reference!

Thanks for the link, Dante. Even in the windowed media play I got a sense of motion on the in cockpit shots. Great work.

It's noticeable how out of sync is the audio in the videos - I've used registered Fraps 2.60 to grab the video/audio and then used VirtualDub(free) to encode in Windows Media format - anyone has a hint about how audio should be recorded with Fraps? \:\)

Dante-JT try using microsoft movie maker (free with XP) to compress your videos you dont lose out on the sound and easy to use, I use it make ingame movies adding my own sound track to them as well (mostly ac/dc) also you csn give comentary on whats happing what i have found that helps with fraps is if you set it to 26fps doesnt tend to hog your system to much.
