Default Viggen engine 3d model

Hello guys, I was flying the Viggen and noticed that the engine bay on the model is rather incomplete and lacking in the details department. It looks kind of crude compared to lets say, the Mig-21.
I know its kind of minor, but are you planning to improve this?

I attached some pics below and a screenshot to compare them.

Thank you.

Hey! My pic!



What is it you find is missing? That screenshot is rather dark.

The nozzle will of course change its appearance depending on the throttle setting and the top reverser plate will only hang down a while after engine shut downs, and the hydraulic pressure bleeds off.

Im talking about the stuff behind the afterburner. Our Viggen has nothing behind it, just a black grey texture. If you look at the real engine, there are blades and other parts behind it.
I repeat, this is a very minor problem, the rest of the model is top quality, so if Heatblur can improve this part a little bit, then it would be perfect.

PS: Nice picture you took there Goblin

Those blades will be spinning so fast they will look just like a grey blur.

Ah! I see. Yes, they could probably put a turbine texture on there.
But as addde says, when running it would be a spinning blur anyway.

Biggest thing I've noticed is the lack of an animated nozzle.

Well... the exhaust is missing... a lot.

You can't even see a turbine there, this part of the aircraft really needs some love.

EDIT: Looks like that's the old model, can anyone confirm if they changed it in the last Viggen patch? I didn't check the exhaust with this new 1.5.6 update.

Sorry but I disagree with you. If you take a look at the su-27, f15, mig21, mig29, etc, to name a few, you will notice they all have fully detailed animated engine nozzles with spinning blades that look far from just grey blur.
I also noticed wheel rotation is off, the animation is too slow. When the plane moves very slowly there is no rotation at all. It looks weird, as if the plane was sliding around.
Maybe they fix this sometime in the future.

Sorry for my english.

I noticed tonight that my AI Wingman has an animated engine nozzle however I couldn't get my Viggen to display the same.

I just bought the viggen, and this is the first thing I noticed!
Crap, this module is giving me some MiG-21 vibes (a.k.a. weird bugs that will never be ironed out...)
