what am I doing now?

Recommended Posts

Nice video. I've been tracking this project for a few months and I must say I like it very much. The idea of Falkland/Malvinas sim is great! :) I have few questions about JT

 

1. Do you need beta testers? I know that this question was asked before but it was never answered.

2. Is the Harrier HUD final? If yes I noticed that VVI is not modelled.

BTW: I think that Attitude indicator is modeled incorrectly. The gyroscope is the main part of it so the indicator shouldn't float/wave because gyroscope don't have inertia (strange but true).

 

Thats basically all. Keep up good work guys!!

Yup. But we are not in beta yet, unfortunately. But, I liked your questions, so you may be in the Beta-test when we actually reach Beta. :)

 

2. Is the Harrier HUD final? If yes I noticed that VVI is not modelled.

 

Not even half of what a Sea Harrier's FRS.1 displays in its HUD is being modelled yet. Lacks the VVI indeed, you're correct, but also lacks flight path marker, AOA, slip ball (very big and obvious in Sea Harrier's HUD just below heading scale). We did these symbols, they're not working yet for reasons beyond my comprehension. :blink: But rest assured we will not be entering Beta without these things working properly.

 

BTW: I think that Attitude indicator is modeled incorrectly. The gyroscope is the main part of it so the indicator shouldn't float/wave because gyroscope don't have inertia (strange but true).

 

hmmm...seems easy to fix since as you describe it's mainly an animation/graphics fix.

Shipwrecks:

I've been working in making the textures of the clipper Lady Elizabeth 2 shipwreck model that Ariel Cancio modeled. The Falkland/Malvinas Islands are the biggest cemitery of visible 19th century shipwrecks, and we'll have at least 3 of these in the sim for sightseeing purposes, in their correct locations. Good for buzzing and screaming past their masts at low altitude.

 

This one in the pic below is the Lady Elizabeth 2, I've just dropped it in the game world at a few hundred meters from shoreline without caring about her exact location (which I know is Northeast of Stanley harbor, close enough so it can be seem in some war photos):

Carrier VTOL landing:

 

I've did a short video showing a typical vertical landing in the carrier with a clean and light Sea Harrier FRS.1. The carrier is anchored 2 miles off the south of Stanley for landing trials. The deck's elevator was 'accidentally' left opened so I had to avoid landing exactly in that hole - done, but I ended sinking left wingtip gear leg 1 meter into the carrier's port lower platform deck - ouch, almost slipped of the deck into the sea.

Any news?

 

Any news?

 

 

Yup :) We're working hard in the important combat parts such as shipborne AAA systems (Oerlikons) and the Sea Dart SAM - they're working! Next step is to have radar covering and sweept cycles for the warships - Type 959 radars and its constraints. And radar masking and such important stuff we still don't have.

When, do you believe, can we take the harrier for a free demo flight over Port Stanley?

Not sure. As we're an independent team without funding, I can't force team members into precise schedules right now. But we have many things to do until we're OK for public demo. Specially LODs (level of detail) and other very important features that all games have.

Ojalá podamos probar en poco tiempo el juego aunque sea sin poder disparar, sólo volar por las islas para ver como se siente.

Hi JT. Spoke to you fellas a LOOOONG time ago in the "What do you want more?" thread. It's looking great so far! Nice clear, crisp graphics that will run on a computer you don't have to live in a basement to buy. Very good stuff your team has put together. I've also noticed you've been keeping the expectations of the release date realistic.

 

Excellent work, sirs. I really have my hopes pinned on this baby. Keep your heads down, take all the time you need, and nail this sucker down right.

Our internal colision physics system isn't reliable enough to provide a solid gameplay, so, now we're in the proccess of integrating a third party SDK system to handle it, so far the results are encouraging. More news to come soon. :)
