Did you mod  its vectored thrust...? as the model H gave me has it working and bump mapping etc...been a while I forget...well im old ...thats my excuse...lol

Of course, yakarov79 almost remodelled it completely with many additional details, including a reworked cockpit 3d model. Crusader improved the avionics, baffmeister created a realistic flight model. I coordinated the team, made tweaks here and there and improved effects, sounds, and of course skins!

Here below a comparison between the nozzles of the current 3d model, and the ones of the old 3d model released in alpha stage by Heberth. Credits to yakarov79 for the 3d model, better textures by yakarov79 and yours truly.

now:

most of the dark blue parts are unchanged...(nozzles and wings were processed also) the rest (colorful) is tinkered...one way or another.

And I am not even a big fan of F-22. Reason and motivation is behind one person - his dedication to the project is remarkable. It was a great pleasure to work with him on this. It was not just demands and requests - waiting for the final product. It was full cooperation in all aspects. If ever you need to work on something - go with Menrva.

Wow, I didn't expect such kind words... And I feel like I have bothered you with a few requests of changes from time to time, LOL!

Without your offer and determination to help (I was simply asking about adding missing rail launchers and pylons at the time), we wouldn't have this much detailed 3d model.

Likewise, it was a fantastic cooperation! Without your great support (and Crusader's and baffmeister's) I wouldn't have accomplished this project; you guys have provided me with your expertise (modelling, FM, avionics) and raised the quality bar of it :drinks:

Guys,

You're creating a very beautiful and dangerous Raptor... :hi:

Little heads-up. The new cockpit 3d model is still in the works, a few fixes remain but it's giving a bit of trouble. When it is completed, I will release the package. The cockpit will feature more realistic MFDs, I will post comparison shots in due time.

In the meantime, I also fixed minor issues; the real Raptor carries around 18,411 lbs of fuel, over 26,000 lbs with external fuel tanks. Now this is properly reflected in-game. It can't get more realistic than this.

New updates on recent progress. First of all, apologies to keep you guys waiting. Unfortunately, RL is a toll for everyone. The add-on will be ready when it's ready. From time to time new things that need improvement are found, but we're almost there.

@yakarov79 has been instrumental in making the new cockpit 3d model; me and him have constantly worked together to bring you a nicer, more realistic Raptor cockpit; by realistic, I mean that MFDs have got a new layout to better resemble what the real Raptor's cockpit has got, within SF2 engine limitations of course. Julhelm has been very kind to allow yakarov79 to improve upon his previous 3d model. Here below a few comparison shots:

Old cockpit 3d model by Julhelm, avionics by Crusader

New cockpit 3d model by yakarov79, textures by yakarov79 and yours truly; avionics update by Crusader, reworked by yours truly.

Since the package will keep you waiting some more, I added new extras to it; the skin pack will feature the below skin, directly inspired by Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War. Such a Raptor skin was part of a DLC of Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation.

No rush, but I've been thinking of this project lately...

Me too, but the 3d modeller in the team is busy with RL at the moment. The aircraft is pretty much done. However, the cockpit's 3d model requires additional work after some details I discovered about the real one.

It will be completed, that I can assure you. We put so much effort in it, it would be a waste not to complete it.
