I am working on a weapons aim camera system for aircraft. When activated, it will change and optimize some behaviors in the selected weapons and will give a fast action and different touch to the game.
The appearance of this function is very similar to the controversial "Dogfighting mode" (DFM) found in (Ace Combat Assault Horizon) but in my game I will not make the same mistakes.

Spoiler: "DFM"


My Zv-75 aircraft will still not have many details in its painting because when I try, the plane always seems to be painted in pencil. In addition, everything is more complicated with the layers of P.B.R. since I am not sure which is the correct combination to give it a more realistic finish. When I find a promising solution, the plane will be painted.

The new look for the Head-Up-Display / HUD continues in the design phase.

Glad you're still working on this. It's looking increasingly impressive; a nice intersting take on what the game engine can do too.

Thank you very much.

I am now improving the collision geometry
of the Greek island Kasos / Κάσος.

the improvements and reconstruction of the kasos / Κάσος island are complete.
The most difficult part of this whole process was to manually redefine and extend the edges of the entire island and its small islets in order to add a more realistic sea.

Commercial games like A.C. and especially HAWX,
they can separate / limit
their terrain from large oceans,
small lakes and thin rivers
very easily with an extremely
precise pixel overlay technique.

In the absence of that technology, I built a method similar to that of GTA-SanAndreas. which is much more complicated and time consuming since the 3D edges are what separate the land from the sea.
After all the rebuilding and improvements on the island, I started exporting all the new geometry to GZDoom-Builder. And with many tries, I learned how to make automated adjustments and texture changes so that I could easily import new geometries / terrain in the future.
Here are some screenshots of the game:

I am at many crossroads.
I would like to create a new graph
(STARTUP) because the old F-15_SMTD
was replaced and removed. but the new
Zv-75 aircraft still has no painted details.
Originally I wanted to add a parts
exchange system. in fact, the exhaust
nozzles can be interchangeable.
but it is no longer possible to apply that to
the entire plane. it needs to be modified to
the point of creating a new one.
and even if I leave the plane as it is. The UV
texture map is always giving me a lot of
unexpected problems for being made of a
single texture / piece.

Another problem is the keyboard / control
scheme. who is stopping designs for a new H.U.D.
from before, the game is using a system:
"left weapon - right weapon"
but the new one (weapon aim camera
system) is complicating the use of the
controls. so I have to think about how to simplify it.

I also have many doubts about whether to
make the game more:
realistic / simulator / boring.
or transform it into more:
video game / arcade / fun.
I've been playing recently (Gundam-ExtremeVS)
I always wanted to add many of its
weapons, sounds and effects. but now
that I have many doubts, it is really
inspiring me a lot. And there is an old
version on my PS2 with some planes that
maybe can give me some advice and answers. :idea:

I was meditating some days.
I had to solve many dilemmas
in the project.

in short, the game will be more "arcade".
a mix between (Zone_of_the_enders_2 & Gundam_EXVS)
with some elements and features from (Macross)

And for that I needed a new plane faster
and much more versatile.
inspired by the (X-9 Ghost)
the new (AMG-9 Sauber) It is much simpler
in geometry than the previous one (Zv-75)
which allowed it to be developed
in a few days. And now yes,
this new plane will have interchangeable parts.
I am still experimenting with his
painting and at the moment everything
is working as expected

with the head of the (AMG 9 Sauber)
carried out new tests of P.B.R. and
finally more detailed paint designs.
the results turned out to be
somewhat acceptable.

but the really important thing was the
tests with (interchangeable parts).
Although it is working fine, the "Tuning"
of a supersonic plane turns out to
be more complicated and restricted
than in the slow street cars of
my imagination.

later and for a few days, I was thinking
without much success, what give to my
planes more speed and agility.
my brother gave me the answer:
add 2 Extra "Engine side nozzles"

To make this idea really possible,
I first thought about the "side" nozzles
of the (Harrier Jump Jet) but
after researching, its engine is
somewhat slow and big.

Although it turns out that it uses a
variant of the interesting (Pre-Cooled Jet Engine)
that with its incredible and
performance, is just what I need to
thrust a new generation of hypersonic
and highly maneuverable aircraft.

edit: pre-cooled engine was replaced. :idea:

programming has long been in
the background.
I am exploring in the design,
appearance, engineering,
style and philosophy of my
new generation of aircraft and
the whole project in general.

After research, hypersonic aircraft
designs are generally:
arrows, wedges and strange missiles.

this is functional, credible and realistic.
but it is not very interesting.

So I started looking for many
weeks for something that could
be interesting, different and
functional as possible.

and the only really interesting
designs on the whole internet were:

macross plus game: Neo glaug
L.G.H. die neue these: Brünhild


there are very few images of the
Variable / Neo glaug.
so it is currently not possible to
explore its concept further.

Brünhild on the other hand, I love it.
its head is very long and flat.
almost like a sword. which is perfect for
the new Hypersonic speeds of the project.
There is a lot of information about
this spacecraft, so I'm already trying
to adapt and improve its design in
order to add it to the project.

Since many Sabres and swords have
begun to appear in the project,
the thermal shield necessary for
hypersonic flight and even an
atmospheric re-entry, will have
the texture of a (Damascus sword).
with that the PBR will be more
visible and I will gain more style.

I'm still in time to get ahead of the
(SR-72 Darkstar & Enemy Strike Jet)
seen in detail only on toys, and
they are clearly super fast.

the ADF-11 already ruined many
things for me and it is forcing me
to use the (8 generation fighter jet)
to be different.

1: Ace Combat 7 - Space elevator.
2: Ace Combat 3 - Zero gravity mission
3: Air Force Delta Strike - the possible next AC8 space boosters

Acepedia The International Space Elevator:
"The ocean of stars in our galaxy is finally within our reach ...
The universe lies ahead of us, waiting to be discovered. And now, at last,
we have a gateway to ascend to it. Over and over again."
- Kei Nagase

Space flight games and simulators, at one time popular, had for much of the
new millennium been considered a "dead" genre. However, Some more recent games,
most notably Elite: Dangerous, and No Man's Sky, have brought new attention
to the space trading and combat game subgenre.

all this time it has been happening in front of my eyes without realizing it.
It's probably because I still can't play (Ace Combat 7) and because my 2016
goals didn't allow me to see further. But thanks to the concept of hypersonic airplanes, everything is changing.

Since this last one (2020 - August) for the first time I have focused totally on the
aesthetic and conceptual aspects of the project. When I discovered that my technology
and my game were still oriented towards Ace Combat, I felt the obligation to design much
more maneuverable planes as I had seen in the games (Gundam) to distance myself from A.C.

The apparently hypersonic (precooled-jet-engine) with their “Engine Side Nozzles” seemed
to be the explanation my planes needed. But after a lot of research and analysis,
I found big problems. And together with the new objective of surpassing the
ADF-11: “Seventh generation”, I began to look for engines that can operate efficiently in space.

remembering an idea from my childhood and being inspired by the real one
(Nassikas Superconducting Thruster)

2021: Emidio Laureti PNN ( Propulsione Non Newtoniana)

design the new engines (ReactionLess Drive)
that can not only work in space, but also allow travel to other nearby planets
and stars with relative ease. These features, along with many others,
expanded the scope of the project much more than I expected.

I have to admit, all this expansion left me somewhat disoriented.
and I have to figure out how to solve all these hypersonic and space challenges.
Or if it's better to stay where I was so I release the latest development of OZ Vision.
there are some very recent improvements but it is still experimental.

If you download it, please comment how it works or if there is an error.
any suggestion or question is fine.

There are some errors in (Menu) and in the latest version of GZDoom (4.5.0) so I recommend using the version (gzd 4.4.2).
the console is eliminated, use the code: 369.

I included some music but they are cut to little more than a minute.
I don't know if it's wrong, or if I can include them in full or if I have to
remove them. but these songs would be part of the soundtrack of the complete game.

download: OZ Vision ...

Hi ..can I ask which version of doom I need ?
I tried lz and gz but it looks broken ..
Zandronum crashes directly when I try loading it ..

I used GZDoom v4.4.2 or the latest
gzd 4.5 but in this the menu is deformed.

The Mod uses ZScript codes so it
will never work with the current Zandronum 3.

Any Doom IWAD can be used as a base.
I have to investigate how to transform
it into the same IPK3 base.
