Forgot one brrt.

What kind of Muslim oil country are they? How do you deliver freedom when you don't maximize the space to deliver freedom with?

No doubt you've seen it before, but here's a possible addition to the Su-25 family, or at least familyless;

41.media.tumblr.com

(il-102 in case you didn't know)

If implementing the tail gunner in a balanced manner is too hard, you can always make a modified production variant with the back cannons torn out.

Make it tough as nails, but maneuver somewhat worse than the Su-25 - barely good enough to compete in the skies at all.

If you want this in the planes thread, just tell me.

While it is uncertain as to whether cities will be in an update soon, rest assured that they can most definitely glow depending on how their implemented.

If they were just ground objects like the hangars you bomb every now and then, the buildings could just have a glowmap mapped on to them, as they work in roughly the same way as planes as far as skins are concerned.

PS: before someone else point out that this is not the correct skin and blahblahblah, this is based on Petty's Road Runner Superbird he drove during the 70s.

Honestly, it doesn't have everything I'd think it should.

Richard Petty's 90's car: Riatacastings.com

This plane seems to have no orange on it, which is one of the primary colours to note, second only to his blue base.

Add the orange stripes, and perhaaaaps the blue-white outlines and we got somethin here.

Oh. Those are more than likely the next, soon-to-be-released skins. Just wait for them to come out.

And to answer that, I just didn't know how familiar you were with the site, and just now realized who you are. Sorry.

For the most part, they are all released already, they're just strewn about in multiple packs all over the place. My suggestion is comb over all the skin packs, find what is Ace Combatty, and download them.

While I am somewhat turned off by the thin, downward angled wings, otherwise I think it looks pretty pretty, even fishlike. And I like me some fish.

If I were to modify it in any way, I'd mostly just beef up the main and tail wings, the rest looks lovely.

I approve.

Few people know that Multiplayer even exists, given it's under a beta branch (not a popularly known feature), and also that there aren't other people to shoot at.

I'd say wait for a stream or something, but they're exceedingly rare, and as far as I know the only multiplayer stream ever, was Times' own a while back. Though, if you start a thread saying "HEY LETS PLAY MULTIPLAYER AT THIS TIME IN THIS TIME ZONE", and pray to your lucky stars, you may well get someone to play with.

Broken Mirror is his own creation that he started forever ago, and is now basically a term for "same guy, different plane", usually consisting of a change like F-15 to Su-27. For the most part, there is no reference.

So, now that we've a full campaign, is there anywhere we could get decently high-res vectors for the roundels of most/all the countries involved in HT, for skinning purposes?

szboudreau01 @ Wizard Squadron (YF-23/F-16XL)

pls downvote my above

Sorry bout that.

Have some proper, albeit still simple criticisms:

The original aircraft had much brighter, less saturated blues, sort of reminiscent of earlywar US Naval aircraft camo, and were also gradients to a pinkish-purplish colour of some kind.

The camo colour is actually very close to the original colour, though the shade you used wasn't quite as blue.

According to the following, the OADF text is actually next to where the engine's parts would be located, in the bulges behind the cockpit, rather than at the nose:

I.ytimg.com

Also, your aileron grease seems slightly confusing. I can only see them greasing at high speed, where they should angle to the back of the plane, but they instead angle outward. Very minor, I know.

And now for a couple of opinions.

The tail code seems to be speculation. That's.. fine, but I'd probably have chosen to make it AV, as Wizard only ever canonically operated from Avalon.

There probably should be OADF roundels at the front, next to Wizard's emblem, similar to the UAF roundels next to Galm's signature hound here: Vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net

Other than that, I haven't checked the XL, though I think my blue criticism stands there. Otherwise, I wouldn't know.

While there is also Incubator and F11, I suppose this works for those who don't realize that exists.

For that, I must say, "nice idea".

According to Zaku
"It's just an alternate world like Strangereal. And an alternate solar system as well."

This implies we're looking at the same Ceres and Eris we know, just orbiting Earth, not Sol.

Yes. In fact, if you had the game the moment it hit Steam, you got a key.

Interesting to see that the moons are actually Dwarf planets, but that just leaves one question for my odd mind..

does the moon of real Earth get to orbit someone else? Or is it simply gone?

Anyway, best of wishes to you, the community, and everything else involved. May development of VT 1.0000 go smoothly, and the release none too crashy.

So happy, that no plane, human, or anything else could match its happiness.

So hyped, that only your average gaming community can get close to its hype levels.

They're not useable if the campaign author did not add the mod plane in question to the player whitelist, IE the default campaigns.

If the campaign maker DID add the plane to the whitelist, though, then you just have to get the virtual $$$, then buy it.

You can also mod the campaign yourself, but I can't remember the exact file and line..

or just extract the campaign missions to your battle scenario folder, and play with LITERALLY EVERYTHING. If you want.

Well, for an acceptable "being rained on" texture, you only need a particle effect, and a texture, as I said. I don't think the game's so unstable that loading another texture and particle would kill it, especially if they're both low-resolution.

Volumetric, no need whatsoever. It'll never be noticed, and it'll kill the game.

Texture-based animated water, however, would work very well. It wouldn't be effortless, but if you can get it to show on polygons facing the clouds, and the edges spray a load of white drops, you've got yourself some fine water.

szboudreau01 @ "Green Lightnings" Custom Squadron

Your patterns and colours are off to a reasonably decent start.

I don't have too much to add on, so all I can criticize is the nose. I'd suggest attempting to warp it around the conical shape of its mapping.

It's sorta like a slightly more complex Scarface in black-n-green. While I personally can think of lots of better colours, Monster Energy is at least a decent start.

The Flying Tigers, flying outdated P-40s, get an F-22. The Red Tails got P Fiddy Wuns. An F-16 just doesn't suit that.

I guess you haven't been looking.

Of course there'll be some HT missions here, at least one or two.

As for content, I imagine there'll be another starfighter. That or super-ultra-amazing superfighter.

Or, you know. Eurofighter, hornet, etc.

szboudreau01 @ Vector Thrust Cutscene Test: 02

Reminds me of classic Armored Core briefings more than it does an Ace Combat briefing.

I'm okay with that.

All it needs now is a very gentle tune in the background, quieter sounds, and the resemblance is uncanny.

Also the default game's beeps are freaking obnoxious :/

I guess we're gonna be escorting some dudes across meteor impact zones or something.
