Oh yeah. The Last Big Target. We decided a long time ago that we could not bomb this bridge until we fixed that city. Experimenting now just how much city we can fix and how.



Starting to stutter here. Add clouds and AAA and this might be the limit with this solution.



But we built that Thud to drop this bridge and we are going to drop this bridge.

Is that the infamous Paul Doumer bridge? John Piowaty and 2 'SHAKERS/MOVERS' (M-118s) should do the trick.

Bridge bustin at its best........105 style! Bitin at the bit for the BIG #10 msn set.

The problem is our deadline. I want this thing out NOW. But those cities need to be "fixed". In Rising Sun, we just shrunk the cities (as the world was smaller then) and the mind buys it. But these big yellow Hiroshimas cannot be filled with buildings...even for a 1000 foot fly over. I think I can make the area believable if I can shrink it all down to a few areas where the targets are. To cover it all will freeze game computer cold.

Also, the bridge. We changed the thing you see to have intermediate lengths without the suspension, painted it the color the bridge really was and used detail from the bridge itself. It's still a cartoon. So we tried another bridge we have not used yet. It's more realistic but it's not the Paul Doumer Bridge...and it's a slightly less Disneyesque cartoon.

Sure, we can say to stay in the cockpit and fly the mission, fill the sky with AAA and tell you that a Thud is not a Pitts Special but you are still going down there to look around and it's not ready for prime time.

The fact is, it was very long and ran across a river flood plain but was still in the middle of town. Faking this is going to be tough but the mission has been written for years awaiting some fix to the city. Right up stream is the Canals de Rapide Bridge just waiting to be socked and it's right there in the wasteland, too.

Gotta talk to Edward...and fast.

Right ON! Gettin it right is what makes YAP series the best for the history they cover. Attention to detail is what makes these events so immersive for the air combat sim enthusiast......At least thats what fires my appetite for this complement of air combat sims.

The two experiments are great missions but goofy targets. They are better since I shot these pics.

This is the Paul Doumer Bridge:




This is the game's bridge with sections lacking the suspension. Not good.



This is a new bridge. More realistic but with Hiroshima in the background, not very convincing.



This came out better and is a sure sign that we are through and it's time to put it together as a package.



But it IS Vietnam, after all. You have to have chickens.

The chickens, you may have noticed, are REDS. Rhode Island Reds but REDS.

Jammer. You haven't lived until you have seen a 19-year-old boy maneuvering a Jammer around at 30 mph carrying 750 pounds of iron and Tritonal.

Seriously clownfish?... my "one viewpoint"? Thank you for helping me to prove my point .... out of respect for the Yap team I will drop this discussion now .

Just days. We have a bug in SET 10 that we don't want to go any farther. When we clear that up we know it won't be in YAP3.

Here's some slides from SET 10.

Thanks to a great endeavor by the YAP Team! Have experienced many fine hours of combat simming and immersion into the missions of these warriors of a war of politics and excruciating ROE! God bless them all and may they find peace and happiness for the rest of their time and then some.

Job Well Done! thumbsup

John & Co,

Regarding YAP3, and the SF2/W7 conversion. Can you give us a head's up on what you have working on long term.
