    Pluto!

    Its a very good info about Tornado from the Morning Today! Finally someone saw this fighter!
    Looks like very promising project. Please think too about TacPack integration.

    I've been super pleased with the F-104's and the Hog(F-84F), and I am a long time Tornado fan. So needless to say, this will be in my hangar as well!

    I'll save my money after the lack of support for my Sim Skunk Works F-84 problem.

    A good Tonka has been a long time coming. Hope this one meets expectations. Another vote forTacpack integration as well.

    Hi,
    just to know, what was the problem with the Hog? It is strange that we don't answer into the support forum..

    Please consider Tackpack for the Tornado, along with an upgrade for the F104's and AV-8B.
    vACMI is just going to be a niche, which will attract to few people. It's far better to join everybody in the already established addon.

    I'm very happy of this news! Finally we can drive the "big truck" along the roads of the sky!
    As a beta tester, I can affirm that I'm very satisfied of the results of the current version of vAcmi, it's a very powerful tool for military single and multi-player sessions!
    Thanks for your efforts, SSW team!

    We eventually consider the compatibility issue for our PA-200 with Tacpack,but keep in mind,the PA-200 will be vAACMI-native ,it means that all the ordnance will work in the ways you should desire (single and multiplayer,AI,ecc).
    Our aircrafts,since the F-104,have the payload that can be used agaist A/G targets,also with real effect on flight dynamics. In other words,you drop a bomb,the bomb disappear from your pylon,you see the explosion effect in the ground,and your aircraft weight and CG's changes in real time.
    Our vAACMI software implemented the Air to Air environment (now you can fire a Sidewinder or use the cannon against an AI traffic,if you have the right parameters,your AIM-9 hits the target and the target disappear). And this is what vAACMI gives to a single player user.
    For the multiplayer,it works like a real ACMI,fully interactive between players and with a lot of informations useful for Air/Air ranges and dogfights.
    TacPack is a very nice add on,but,for now,our choice is to use vAACMI for our products,even because TacPack is only availabe for FSX (but we hope in the near future they will shift to P3D .X)
    Cheers,
    /Ale

    Yep, but TacPack has compatibility in MP with the others aircraft, targets, very interesting for Single Player FSX@War module (Finish editor & campaignes will be relesed very soon as I know - April or May maybe).

    So if on MP some has vAACMI module and some has TacPack (others aircraft, not SSW models) on the one server it will be a big problem (only Tornado vs Tornado or F-84 or Harrier?).
    VRS gives nice and easy SDK for developers too. Try it .

    For sure it will be in the future for P3D.

    It wouldnt be a big problem for Tacpack users but for the Tornado user yes. Tacpack users will be able to shoot the Tornado out of the sky whereas the Tornado's wont be able to defend themselves. Thats if the Tornado Users have Tacpack installed as a Tacpack server is likely to kick someone without tacpack?

    Anyway back to the SSW Tornado. Looking nice, and good luck but i wont be getting it unless Tacpack is added as thats now a must for military add-ons for me...

    PLUTO16 has contacted me about the apparent lack of response to my request for support. The email address I use is rejected somewhere in the email process and I have given an alternative address. Sim Skunk Works assure me it is their policy to offer support to buyers of their products. I am happy to accept these assurances and offer my apologies for any distress my comments have caused. I hope to be flying the F-84 again soon.

    GREAT NEWS. A good Tornado a MUCH needed. Given the quality and the attention to detail of the Sim Skunk Works team, I am sure it will be a fantastic project.

    I've enjoyed flying UKMIL's Tonka, but a weaponised one would be really nice for this combat fan.

    This really is something that's been a long time coming, the Tornado has been overlooked by payware developers.

    I can tell you what is wrong with that... When I asked this company for support I was told I was an idiot and didn't understand their process. I would only hope no one else buys this product, I know I will not.

    I'll wait for the Justflight offering. At least you can install it on all of your pc's without having to pay extra... And the quality shown in their screenshots is just brilliant!

    The SSW wrote to me that I am a "Pinokio"
    That's really nice of them

    :-D

    Just a little update,to whom it may be interested;
    Developing of PA-200 is still on the way,the external layout is almost finished,now it's time to jump in the cabin to paint and give life to both seats;
    Systems,like the model,are growing very well: Here below an example of Terrain following feature,and some preview pictures:

    Well,as I did for the SuperHog,it's time to ask if someone needs a livery to add in the release pack.
    Models for now,will be IDS (Italy and Germany Air force) and GR MK I (Royal Air force)
    Thanks,
    Alessandro

    This discussion should be limited to the Tornado. Remarks by anyone about developers, customers or developer's website are not acceptable. Please let us stay on topic. I am removing the remarks in question.
