I'll see what i can do about ArmA 3 i probably will wait a while for some more info to be gained about it before i try and add the tomcat in, but i did hear that we can take ArmA 2 addons and put them in ArmA 3 but we wont know till its out.
Hey guys I have a pre-release update for you. Not much to say however. But one thing you all might hate is i removed the afterburner yet again. Only due to problems with scripts and user actions. I hope to re-implement them in the next update.
v1.4 is scheduled for release tomorrow and with that said i hope you all enjoy it. There are a total of about 26 planes with different textures, similar classes, and different VF's posing as vehicle classes. I've added sample missions two of which require JDG_Nimitz which can be found on Armaholic. I also have added a notepad file containing all the vehicle class names for all your scripting desires. The wings now have three actions. Cargo sweep which is only available on the ground can be used in tight spaces. Then Sweep which is the standard sweep just to a different degree than previous versions and of course Swept. My clan and I are also planning on making a video for the next update showing the awesome tomcat. Here are some screens of VF-111 flying in formation to a tanker yet again as they are my new favorite now........only because of the shark teeth which was hell to put on that nose......

Looks GREAT! I'm glad you got your specular and RVMAT sorted, I didn't the glossy wax look.

Looks Awesome, love the plane! Are you including a Tanker Refueling Script?
Thanks guys and @vengeance1 that's not my refueling script it's simply Ace air refueling tutorial that i modified to use my tomcats. So if you really want to do air refueling until Fient decides to release his module i guess Ace would be the best choice. Although i have heard of another guy doing a fueling module that also lets you do air refueling as well.
Congrats on the update. Had a quick look at it. The sweep options though i found weird, because the normal full sweep is now the cargo sweep (I asked myself, why?). The cargo sweep would go fully over the untextured gray-bits behind the wing roots, but i guess you'd have to extend the animation for that.
love these aircraft. VF-111 is a personal favorite of mine as well. Wondering though....do you plan on doing the "show aircraft" version?
if you plan on doing other liveries...could you do VF-143...the pukin dogs tail art is pretty nice:
just a suggestion...
BTW that All Refuel mod/script was just released...when I get a chance I'm going to try it out with your F-14
Thanks, and thats actually the way its supposed to be, and anyways it does change things up a little. It also gives the wings another sweep degree that they would have in real life. Yeah your right i might have to extend the anim for it i just have to see if it would look right and natural.
Ill see what i can do, i tried doing the show aircraft's tail art and had a hard time just because of the way i made the original tail. So i found so more photos and did the current tail art. VF-143 does look nice ill see if i can add it.
Yeah its a nice module I tried it with my tomcat it worked. Was nice to actually use that probe to, only problem was the probe wasn't in the drogue. I'm surprised i even got hooked cause the damn tanker kept turning left and right every 5 seconds luckily i caught him as he was making the next turn.
I cannot for the life of me get it to work with the AF module. Can you post a screenie or try to give a discription as to where the droge was when you actually successfully hooked up? I got meatballs F/A-18 to work fine.

EDIT TO THE EDIT:
Okay, did a little more testing, and it seems that it only works with ones called F-14D Super Tomcat. It worked with VF-103 F-14D Super Tomcat, and VF-11 F-14D Super Tomcat, but not with VF-11 F-14D Bomcat or interceptor

Well why it wouldn't work with my tomcats really wouldn't be my problem but i could probably consult with RAV_RAVEN to better expand the compatibility of his module with the new tomcats. Although since i dont know what the probelm is myself it just might be my addon, so i will look into it more mate thanks for your info and testing and I will look into the problem.
