What is Aeronaut?

AERONAUT is an unoffical custom aircraft design and editing tool for the out-of-print CRIMSON SKIES boardgame by created FASA. Inspired by Scott Janssens' CADET.

AERONAUT features all official Crimson Skies Boardgame rules, including Autogyros and Special Characteristics, which where missing in CADET. It supports the FF5 Houserules. You can easy switch between official rules and custom rules.

Also AERONAUT is expandable and customizable, which means you can add new weapons, rockets, etc. by your self and in some cases you can add your own houserule setups. AERONAUT is open source see Github.

AERONAUT was programmed by Herbert "Mad MaxX" of Fox Force Five.
