FS2004 YF-19

K, I apologize it's taken me this long to get this out, I've just had to push everything aside lately for classwork. The plane isn't quite done in my opinion, there's still more I'd like to do, but I don't have the time to learn how to do it right. I've got the basic plane done, with an extremely basic 3d cockpit, a stock instrument panel for the 2d view, and seven paintschemes, with no fancy effects or anything. It might even run in FSX, but it's meant for FS2004. Hopefully people will add in what's missing, since I don't have time to.

Of course, now that FSX is out, I'm already rebuilding it from the ground up with about 4x as many polygons, and tons more detail. Dunno when it'll be done, but the model exterior is just about done, and is extremely smooth. :) It's kind of a learning project to teach myself the details of FSX modeling.

I'll see about compiling all the files for my CFS3 YF-19 as well later. Blatant overkill in a WWII environment, but it's amusing to blow away every enemy in Europe in one strike mission. ^_^

Now, is there somewhere I can stick a 10 mb rar file so people here can download it?

Hey, sorry it doesn't appear to be up yet, I don't quite know what happened. I mailed the file off to someone who offered to host it, then headed home for Christmas, and didn't get to check back till now. I would try sending it to someone now, but I'm on a 28k modem at the moment. :p It might be another week before I can do anything about it.

But I can give you a preview of the new one I'm working on for FSX :D

That is a excellent exemple of modelling skills.

Will you ever make it available to the general public, or sell it on the net ?

Well, I'll put it this way.. I haven't hit the polygon limit yet in FSX. Course, I haven't been experimenting much lately, but I did get a 90k poly model running beautifully :) (no textures though).

I can't actually sell anything like this, due to copyright junk, but I'll gladly put it up for free download.. whenever it gets finished that is. :?

I use this for my file uploads...

http://upload2.net/

IF no one DL's in it goes away in 30 days. If it's active, but you forget your link while in other forums go back to the message you posted it in and re-copy it. - each file can be up to 25mb and unlimited number of uploads.

Hope that helps anyone.

For images I use:

Another bump.

Is the project still alive?

It better be. :ph34r: I will add the YF 19 to this one:

The FFR-31 MR/D Super Sylph, "Yukikase"

Hey, let everyone know where to download this file.... also if you are still working on the FSX version, don't forget to add thrust reversers. The Super Sylph needs some runway (a LOT of runway) to stop.

A quick question... where can we download this baby??? I'd love to be able to fly it!

Thanks in advance!

Here you go:

It handles great!! Only beef I have is that it doesn't have thrust reverse..... I need some pretty long runways to stop!! <_< I have to powerslide it to stop on the runway!!!! :lol:

I really wish Chronocidal would update us on this project.

Do we have to consider it dead ? A pity as it was looking great.

Yup, was really looking forward to flying this again. I remember playing with the original version when he was still working on it, and it was a joy. Unfortunately I lost it during a reformat.

Would love to hear an update on the FS2004 YF-19.

Well, looks like I owe everyone another apology.. I had thought this file was distributed by someone a long time ago, but it apparently never happened.

It's taken a really long time, and I can't guarantee this will work in FSX (if I remember correctly from trying it once, only the planes without any reflective textures work.. they turn transparent in FSX. There are ways to fix this by tweaking the textures, but I don't remember how to do it.) I am glad some people still have interest though, and I do hope to finish one for FSX later on (once I graduate I hope to be able to pick up the FS modeling a bit).

I really apologize for keeping everyone waiting this long. It's my own fault, I tend to pick up too many projects at once, and things get pushed aside and/or forgotten. Hopefully someone will still get some fun out of this. :)

Included are 3 models (two shiny test models, one with test probe, one without, and a dull material low-vis one), with 7 texture sets (white and tan prototypes, Supernova 4, 5, & 6, a plain bright white one, and a low-vis with some F-18 markings thrown on for fun). I never did learn how to make or add gauges, so the virtual cockpit is just for looks. The 2D cockpit uses the stock stunt plane instrument panel.

Enjoy!

If anyone has trouble downloading this (which, given the history of distribution this has, is pretty likely to happen), let me know and I'll look for another host.

Download YF-19.rar

This should be extracted directly into the FS2004 Aircraft folder.

Just tried it out in FSX Acceleration. It seems to be working just fine. I tried out the Blank textured one. Very nice work on the model. It's nice to have the thrust vectoring. Great job Chronocidal.

EDIT : Spelling.

Would you happen to have an updated link for this? it seems the matrix doesn't like your current link.

If anyone has the file, get it to me and I'll upload it on my website. I've had about 30 minutes of down time in the last 5 years I've owned it, so the link wont go dead.

I'm still looking for a VF with a cockpit. Someone named ghost made a VERY nice VF-1S for ARMA (Go to youtube and search ARMA VF-1S), WITH a cockpit. If only that kind of thing were going on with FSX.

I really wish I still had my YF19 from FS2000. Had working textures and all that, based off of some awesome free F-14s that had all the fancy effects and such. I had just started work on the cockpit.
