The MFDs work as they are supposed to...the only thing that has changed is their location...instead of beig imbedded in the instrument panel, they are presented along with the HUD.


They worked in both places in TAW, but how many of us flew from the virtual cockpit view? I flew from that view less than half the time. Ideally it would be great to have both or toggle the preference, but doesn't seem like a big deal to me.

Steve- Does the "no jumps in lightning" mean no day and night cycle? All missions are daytime, right/wrong?

It would be a difficult task to change anything meaningful (I think I'd have a job going back, and I wrote a lot of it!). In those days we didn't use 3rd party tools like MAX, so just changing one shape would not be trivial.



Hi Steve-

Frankly, I'd be satisfied with a hack to put GBU-24s in the weps bay and/or to allow independent retargeting of JDAMs. Would that be terribly difficult?

It means that the change from daytime to night doesn't happen suddenly. The passage of time is continuous and the lighting changes smoothly right along with it.

Steve,

1) Would the war theatre be the same as in EF2000 (i.e. Sweden)? Or there will be a couple of different theatres for us to choose from?

2) Would it be a clickable cockpit?

3) Any new armaments added apart from those we have had in EF2000?

4) What about aircrafts from the other side, would it include China's latest J-10 which looks extremely similar to the EF2000?

5) Last but not least, would it be available in Hong Kong *i.e. Asia?

Tons of thanks!

Steve Hunt,
On the question of source code for EF2000 and TAW.
1. Would it be possible to release the code publicly, or even for compensation, if there is a license agreement that stated any modifications and improvements would belong to Rage, and could be used by rage in a future release of a EF2000/TAW product.

2.Even though TAW is a long and complex code, you are probably underestimating the resources of the serious flight sim community. Case in point, Falcon4. If Microprose had such an agreement Falcon5 would be on the store shelf with next to nothing development cost by now.

3. Rage could set up a server/website to store and catalog all mods such as artwork, Realism Patches, etc... This would help rage monitor and even help to administer/support the development efforts.

4. Would the flight sim community care if Rage makes a profit from the work. I personally would not, nor do I think the vast majority would. Face it, Rage produces sims for a profit. We are not licensed to be altering sims any way. As it is, because of the cost to have a paid staff develop TAW V2.0, or the matter Falcon5, its not likely to happen, but under such an agreement it would be very likely that there would be a TAW V2.0 that would reset the military flight sim standards.

Any other thoughts from anyone?

There is only one theater...Iceland.

The cockpit is not clickable. The MFDs are controlled by the keyboard.

Here are the EF2000 weapons and their Typhoon counterparts:

1. AIM-9M - ASRAAM
2. ASRAAM - same
3. AIM-120 AMRAAM - Meteor
4. S-225 LRAAM - Meteor
5. CRV-7 - same
6. Mk-82/83 - same
7. BL-755 - same
8. GBU-12/16 - same
9. Durandal - not modeled
10. Sea Eagle antiship missile - Penguin
11. Maverick antiarmor missile - Brimstone
12. ALARM antiradar missile - same

No Chinese aircraft!

I expect the sim to be marketed world-wide.

Andy

Cat,

Just getting the code to build and run would be difficult....

Junglegeorge,
I'll get back to you on this....

Cheers,

Thank you Andy.

Despite the MFD has to be controlled by the keyboard, I still accept it.

Great place for answers to this Typhoon sim. Thanks for the answers to Andy and Steven.

Steven i have one more question for you:

What kind of manual are we going to get? - I mean how big / detailed is it. Will it have plane/unit information in the back like TAW had? Will the manual be digital aswell?

Thanks in advance...

Hey Andy, don't forget the cannon!

By the way, is there any other new weapons we haven't see or heard of before. There are actually less weapons in Typhoon than it's predecesor. Now that can't be right?!

Steve, do we get to choose between sub and supersonic tanks in the weapons page? Are there raking systems for multiple weapons per hard point?

These are just technical questions, I do like the game, and am a fan of the aircraft itself, so I'm definately looking forwards to the release.

newspaper reports today suggest Rage is canning 4-5 titles.Now this news has left me a little anxious!
Can you confirm that Typhoon is still on scedule for release subject to distribution?
On an unrelated note i would really like to get hold of the promo mpeg,s and adverts for EF2K-Some of them were pretty special .

Amp,

The manual is about 100 pages (short for a sim!), It tells you all you need to know about the game etc, without over doing it. For more real in-depth info you will be able to turn to the strat guide - I'm sure Andy and Badboy would give you some idea of what'll be in it...

There will be an electronic version on the CD (I think)

EF2000 crazy,

We have diferent centre and wing tanks, but no sup and super ones.

Depending on the weapon, you can have more than one per hard point....

bobinski,
No Typhoon hasn't been canned (it's finished!)... As far as i'm aware, these were all products in their very early stages.
Typhoon should be out around April.

Not sure where you could be the EF2K stuff though.

Cheers,

Steve

100 pages? As long as it's 100 very GOOD pages

At least there will be a strategy guide. If it's anything like the one's that were out for EF-2000 and ADF/TAW; I'll be the first in line to get one.

Steve,

Will there be a comprehensive Single/Multiplayer mission editor for creating online/offline missions that can be shared with friends, and used by Internet Squadrons to create their own 'campaigns' of sorts?

This is currently done in Flanker 2, Janes F18,Falcon 4 etc. etc.

It has also been proven to greatly extend the life of a SImulation..or of any game for that matter.

So if not..why not?
