We're been busy with some 'upgrading' of JT models to 2006/2007 standards. This means more details, more parts for damage modelling, and specially higher res textures, that Marcelo 'Marcfighter' is providing with great results.

Some screenshots I've took (still on my slightly ancient pc, notice the fps), they're of a rare very high altitude kind \:\) One of the nice improvements done recently, is that Steve somehow reduced to almost none the z-buffer flicking we had in the rock formations and ground clutter at this distant/height, so JT is pretty solid visually now and also running as a full native Win32app:

Is it me or the refuel boom seems too thin and long? and I think there is something odd with the cannon, but I'm not sure of what.
Besides that, is good to have news \:\)

I will fix those ASAP \:\) Indeed, the refuel probe looks somewhat strange from that angle. The nose contour should be smoothed too (more polygons/geometry) after all, we're aiming for 2007 standards. The cannons prolly suffer a problem of texture - should be darker/black according to photos I'm seeing here.

Thanks for the heads up! I will fix those and post some extra pics as soon as possible!

Good to see the terrain is looking nice at altitude, too!

Refuel probe trimmed and corrected according to drawing of A-4B:



(notice that above drawing is right-side of plane and I've flipped it for the comparison - we cannot found a drawing of the left side of plane).

Cannons are corrected also, the textures will soon follow the corrections in the geometry and I will post some new screenshots tomorrow.

Screenshots of the Halcones with corrected refuel probes and cannons - I will check later for more specific detail in the front gear door comms antenna:

That second to last screen is amazing! Best building I've ever seen in a sim. Man, I can't WAIT for JT! \:D


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

Very nice shots. Keep up the good work. I am looking forward to this one, although I will be flying on the British side! ;\)

How is the Harrier coming along?

The Harrier and Sea Harrier will be updated too with more parts for damage model and higher resolution skins.

This art content updating is taking place because the programming side is entering a organization phase: we got a decent techdemo, with all basic parts required for a modern flight sim (terrain, cockpits/avionics, FM, some network and campaign code) - but then, to jump from this techdemo to something people could play and enjoy, is a huge step - I know due to my previous experience in the gaming industry - this way, we're organizing all code into a CVS (kindly provided by Steve in a Linux box in his house) and this will hopefully make it easier for expansion and integration of new code parts or enhancing current ones, together with a new programmer guided by Steve - I will be presenting him later - he did texture compression jobs for JT and at the moment he's in charge of CVS/code organization. \:\)

By the looks of things, JT will have that "look" to it that's hard to describe, but which makes the sim very believable and enjoyable. Other sims that just "feel" rights are EAW and Grand Prix Legends. JT is looking better and better!

The proper A-4C ('Charlie'), the one in previous pics was just an A-4B wearing a A-4C skin for test purposes:



Notice the more elegant nose and the extra weapon store in the wing.

The camo is based on the colors of this real plane:

No need, the truth is an affirmative defense! \:D I can't wait for this to be released. Now Dante, let's make sure the bombs do explode here unlike the real thing. \:\)
