* ArmA 2 - USS Nimitz

    JDog released some new videos showing the carrier in action.

    Good news: Catapults are scripted in now, letting you lock into the line you're on so you can push the engines without moving, then signal when you're ready to launch. I added a slight blur effect too, which is kinda cool, though probably unrealistic lol. The JBDs also come up behind you once you lock in to the catapult. Right now its looking like each catapult can launch a plane every ~20-25 seconds, depending on how quickly pilots clear the deck and others move on to the line. The arrestor cables can accept an aircraft every ~30 seconds. Also, elevators now scripted with the actions too. What's nice, its made so you don't have to fiddle around looking for the "action point" to get the action to appear in your menu. Straight to business!

    Bad news that's really good news: That entire interior in the stern I posted earlier is getting scrapped cuz I'm not satisfied with it at all, especially after finding some revealing pictures/video. So it's still gonna be highly inaccurate I'm sure lol, but it'll be better than what was previously done, significantly so. I'm also thinking of making that rear interior like "modular" haha. Releasing like a template version of it, in case anyone wants to modify it/create their own interior for the ship for whatever purpose. Could be cool for some interior firefights if anyone made something for it.

* ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead - [GLT] Myke's F-16

    Myke released a new video showing the progress on the upcoming WarFX - BlastCore and also eddyD posted 2 screens showing the new IDF F-16 skin.

    Finished modelling center console. Certain anims aren't done yet like altimeter switch between radar and barometric aswell as calibrating. Also HSI will get NAV/ILS functions. The plan is that the canopy can be destroyed up to a level where your sight will be dramatically reduced. Also plane HUD can fail and your only remaining altimeter is the one on the center console. Then i guess it would be very helpful to have the altimeter calibrated to the barometric pressure of the target airfield to know how high above ground you really are, zero-view landings! Anyway, still looking for someone who might help me to create a rough formula to calculate barometric pressure based on location, season, time of day and weather. It doesn't have to be high accurate weather simulation, just plausible values.
