The biggest names in Vector Thrust modding are coming together to collaborate on a large-scale project, depicting third through fifth generation fighter jets in the real world.

We’re combining our templates and techniques for unparalleled detail and have a dedicated team researching every aircraft for accuracy. With standardized templates and every member having a hand in each release, we guarantee consistent aesthetics and quality. Over the course of many releases we intend to unlock Vector Thrust’s visual potential and enrich its gameplay with more aircraft, maps, and missions.

Over the past few weeks, you may have noticed a slowdown in our content output, and many of you may be wondering what we've been up to. Well, this report is here to answer just that, as well as provide previews of our upcoming work. We've not stopped, far from it, but as you'll soon read, we've been providing content for the game in other, exciting ways.

As some of you may already be able to guess, about half our team has been hard at work on vanilla Vector Thrust content, providing not only texture work, but contributions to writing, editing, and mission-making. Rest assured, though- these efforts, and the skills we've learned working on them, will only result in a better experience for all, both in vanilla Vector Thrust, and in future VTRP efforts as well! So stay tuned, there!

As for what we, the VTRP team, have been working on ourselves, there's quite a lot to speak of!

With the weathering on our F-14 template progressing nicely, we're well on our way to making a pack of naval aircraft from a number of famous squadrons, and pending work on our MiG-21 and Su-25 templates, we should have some beautiful Russian kit to release in the future, as well. Of course, while accurate, detailed skins are our first love, they're not our only goal. In fact...

We've got some new maps coming soon! Anyone living in the southeastern US, or avid NASA buffs might recognize this spot, and we have some maps of notable Asian, European, and African locales in the works as well, one of which will be included in a mini-campaign by the talented John_Silver putting you in the shoes of a VVS Su-27P pilot fighting NATO forces in Abkhazia.

There's a few more... surprises in the works, but those are for a later date. ;D

So, as you can see, VTRP is alive, well, and well on the way to providing VT players with even more to be excited about!

Before we end this report, however, recent, concerning events have prompted the team to make a very important clarification.

Steam Workshop integration will at some point come to Vector Thrust, and with the announcement of Workshop Paid Content it's unclear whether the game's publisher will allow for paid content or not. Regardless of which decision they make, VTRP's team has agreed that any content released under the VTRP banner will always be free to download and redistributable through a Creative Commons license.

We also decline to take any donations or engage in Pay What You Want sales; our expenses are meager and paid out of our own pockets. In lieu of donations, the Vector Thrust Realism Project asks that you instead consider donating to any of a number of charitable organizations, such as UNICEF, Doctors Without Borders, or your country's National Red Cross/Red Crescent Society

We thank you for your time, and hope you keep enjoying VT!

Hey guys, may I use your AIM-9X from one of the F-16 mod for my (not-so-new) mod?

Maps have been reuploaded with water fixes and should be authorized sometime tonight. The old Midway map has also been brought up to VTRP environment standards with new water textures and realistic cloud layers.

How are they working for you? I've received some reports of issues with water reflections and might be re-uploading them tonight.

Do you plan on adding skins based on ROKAF and PRKAF aircraft?

ROKAF and PRKAF aircraft will be part of the respective F-16 and Fulcrum export packs, and we'll probably have Nork MiG-21s in a future pack.

What about an F-5 foreign operator pack featuring the nations that use it?

Our main focus, currently, is on more modern (Generation 4/5) fighters, but it's entirely feasible that we'll be working with older-gen aircraft- and their export schemes- in the future.

We'll have F-5s in our Naval Aggressor pack, as well, so chances are good we'll expand to export Tiger IIs eventually. :)

We might cover that at some point, but we're starting off with 4th and 5th generation fighters. After we make a significant dent in them we'll focus more efforts on 3rd gen.
