No...it's not dead. Contrary to popular belief.

I have what is the final 3D file from Alex, barring any changes deemed necessary by Maddox, and I'm painting/repainting various areas that have been changed or added. If you look closely, and are familiar with earlier renders, you'll see the changes and additions.
I'll post progress shots here, to quiet the naysayers.

That is great work. The creator obviously has great attention to detail and is very thorough, a big well done from me! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif


Now, to what really concerns me.....or better still, should concern everyone else,

We have all seen cockpits of aircraft that are still not in the game. Why should Tempest be any different? Just because it exists doesn't mean diddly squat.

Is work progressing on it for an add-on to Forgotten Battles or is it for BoB?

I think that SaQSoN has answered that question in another thread:

Besides, modelling is barely a 30% of the whole work, required to add a plane or a ship into the game. Who will do the other 70%?

I might be in error, but since there allready is a Tempest ingame wouldn't the flightmodel allready be in? Since the AI now is supposed to use the same model as us players that is. So in effect, more than 30% of the work is allready complete.

Sure, but look at all the animated gauges, dials, levers, pedals, and lights inside the cockpit that need to work in a logical manner, also think of the cockpit damage model and the gun sight. You will find that "more than 30%" may be far from "close to 100%".

I'm not saying that I know that all of this still needs to be completed. Just keep your expectations low and you won't be disappointed.
