YPG may be reasonable, but SDF are just ISIS "recolored".
The very same "rebels" from FSA, who "defected" to ISIS en masse.
And let's face it, they're only willing to negotiate, when backed into a corner.

Easy mode is actually very easy. But if you really want to make it beyound easier, open the .cmp file for campaign with any text editor and increase your weapon power and HP multiplier values (there is no difficulty modifier for the whole game, each campaign has it's own difficulty settings).

John_Silver @ Vector Thrust Unofficial Patch 2

There is a separate Su-30M2 addon. Just browse the VT addons, should be there.

John_Silver @ Vector Thrust Unofficial Patch 2

The first one was integrated in 1.5 official update. You'll only need to install this one.

TimeS, hey.
Long time no see.

I know, that you've said that some of VT's models (like F-16 and Su-27) are outdated, but since you have had rather heavy load on you lately, maybe you should continue using (and improving) current models? Especially in light of many many skins made for them.

You can always make brand new models someday later, when the bulk of the work for VT (like the most of the content) is done.

(Still hope to see fixed current variants of Su-27SM and Su-37).

This is quite a good job for a first time, actually.
My very first attempts at skinning were admittedly worse.
Keep it up.

ZakuTwo and I already contacted TimeS on the subject of stealth mechancis. The next update is supposed to have complete overhaul of the mechanics, dismissing RCS values in favor of simple Yes\No stealth for each angle, making stealth units always visible on the map and setting minimum detection range (as in range where stealth is ignored) as ~5 or ~7 km. (TimeS suggested 5km, methinks 7 is better for balance).

Amazing, as always.
Great job.

Also, stupid new rating scirpt refuses to save my vote, so 10/10.

That's because it's the same plane, 71-290 IIRC. When NASA tested the STOL\MTD program it had one set of engines and designation. When they tested ACTIVE program it had another set of engines and designation.

Much like Su-27M (borts 701-712) were designated Su-35 without VT-engine and Su-37 with them.

Not the only issue, to be honest. Su-37 and Su-27SM also require model corrections. TS already promised to take care of those, though.

Thanks. Those are already good news.
Typhoon and RAFALE are both rather iconic aircrafts, so it'd be great to have them. MOAR weapons is also great.

But I would recommend to increase stealth detection range to 7km. Methikns that would be better for balance, since most stealths are pretty advanced planes that have missiles with 7-8km lock range.

Xpand122 made both aircrafts. He's the one you need to ask for templates as well.

Hey, TimeS.
I have a couple of questions.
First and foremost, what is an approximate ETA of next update (this week, next week, around 15th, later)?
Will the new stealth system we discussed be implemented?
Will new aircraft be added or only new weapons?

@TimeSymmery, @Nergal01 (I post this here to avoid wipe).
Continuing on the cockpit issue.
ZakuTwo and I have discussed this in the past. Zaku says the good option would be to add "family cockpits" - take the family's most often used pit and apply it to all family.
I'm more in favor of "Gran Turismo" style approach. Make pits for more popular and interesting variants and use "silhouette\shadow" pits for others.

The no-texture issue was there, because, for some reason (probably to allow custom pits), cockpit texture was determined by .skin file. Technically, it's easy to fix manually by adding the proper lines to .skin file.

That would be just a black A-10 with some logos slapped on. You can find A-10 texture template in the plane's folder.

Just ignore that one. Looks very much like a troll.

Have the same bug. Temporary solution I've used - manually edit sound settings in config.ini and don't adjust volume from options menu.

Hence the request for them as a holidays present.
Plus, T-50 prototypes won't even need weapon bays animations.

Hey, TimeS.

Since it look like that the update, likely, would be released around holidays, what do you think of and idea of long-awaited T-50 (T-50-1 or T-50-4) as a holiday present to VT fans?

Well, kinda. Less pumpkin-themed, more like nightmare\monster-themed.
