  1. I don't care much about the in cockpit buttons because it's stupid (I have a keyboard that can "simulate" clicking buttons) I really only care about the fly dynamics and whether or not they can put in a better flight simulation.
  2. Hmm, what seems to be the point of a frangible cover? They'll have to replace it every time they fire the cannon.
  3. This has been bugging me for a bit lately. I was looking at aircraft pictures and I can't seem to find where the cannons are placed on a few aircraft. Where are the cannons on: Mig21, Mirage 2000, Dassault Rafale, Eurofighter Typhoon, F-35 I've looked at a ton of pictures but I can't figure out where they find space to put these guns in. I think The f-35 has a bulge and that's where the gun is, but for the rest of the aircraft mentioned, I can't find it.
  4. Since you guys are modelling the F-15C, why aren't you guys modelling respective aircraft? I'm sure the Soviet Union didn't introduce the Su27 and not upgrade it from time to time. Is there a "c" version of the Su27?
  5. Common sense? Tell me Steve, since you're so new and updated on things. What common sense is there in releasing an add on pack for a 7 year old game that cannot be bought in stores or anywhere for that matter? So much common sense that the only customer base that will ever know what Flaming Cliffs even means is the current Flaming Cliffs customer base? With the tiny feature list of tweaks and patch updates, not even the Digital Combat Simulator customer base, who may have never played lomac would know what flaming cliffs is about. In fact how are you going to market what essentially is a large patch as a 29.99 product? In a sense, I feel like ED is trying to squeeze as much money as they can out of this community but I love them too much for keeping flight sim gaming alive to really get angry at that fact. I think what T-Bone means is why not cut up Flaming Cliffs or Lomac for that matter into bite sized chunks. Release them separately as DCS games, update plane models one at a time (how hard it is to create a singular Flanker model) and release it as DCS modules. For instance, lets look at this: Every 6 months, they'll take a plane from Flaming cliffs. Lets say Flanker, update the model, weapons, radar systems, etc. Maybe do a complete AFM overhaul of each plane and then release it as a 19.99 module. Go at the same rate until all Lomac games are successfully ported into DCS. At the same time, you have continuous updates across the board to create a master product. Once all is done, release a SUPER sim of all the aircraft.
  6. Wait then why don't they just port over all the aircraft and call it DCS: Fighter Edition. I mean the code is in ED's hands or is this some kind of intellectual property dispute? I don't see anything good will come out of marketing an expansion for a game that nobody can realistically buy anymore.
  7. Why are you guys still bound by Ubisoft? Why not just add in 6 new low AFM airplanes to a "DCS:Expansion pack" And forget the bloat that was Lomac? Like I don't even have my original Lomac CD Well, I do have Flaming Cliffs on this site so maybe that'll work but still, I have DCS KA-50 why not just release it as an expansion pack to that? Seriously, there is a box of Lomac sitting on my self with nothing in it. 7 years is a long time to keep an aging game. And here's a shoutout to all the old timers, at least you guys are still around!
  8. Anyone have videos / pictures of the C model?
  9. I am shy to admit that I use a Macbook Pro. :D I figured it out, pressing s unpauses the game.
  10. I have a laptop keyboard and it doesn't have pause break!!!! How do I start missions?
  11. Can some Admins please rename the forum browser title to Eagle Dynamics Forums for obvious reasons? My GF is beginning to get suspicious ;) Thanks.
  12. Bad idea dude. You're hitting memory limits, not card limits. If you want to play very high water, turn off FSAA since you're already hitting 1920x1200 memory limits (there's a very easy way to calculate how much memory a card needs based on resolution, i believe in Crysis, the game takes up to 300 memory for 1680x1050, just enough for my 8800gt to run it perfectly, but it lagged like crazy on my older 8800gts 320mb)
  13. Very very nice screens. Everything looks very cheap and to the point. Perfect interface design so far. Only one comment: Make your white / black bordered drop down menus more interesting / fitting with the theme. Font choice "could' be better but all in all very nicely done.
  14. The funny thing is, the forum skins makes a really really great web design. It looks very professional, compared to the official site. Port this skin over and DCS will jump to the top on google.
  15. The current design is a little lame to be honest. There is no mass market potentional for this "simulator" and it is purely marketed at that. Coming onto this site as a regular consumer, a person would be instantly turned off by professional niche marketing. There is no appeal or message other than stating the fact that there is this digital simulator game with a focus on helos which has a huge abundance in detail. I will whip something up tomorrow or sometime later to show you what I mean and how a good website can push a great game into the minds eye of regular people.
  16. Hey man what's up? This forum is a shadow of its former glory. Too many people grew up and their real lives took over I guess. Hope DCS brings in some new guns. Who needs sigs? haha.
  17. Hey guys not sure if anyone remembers me but I'm up for making some designs for DCS just for the kicks. If anyone can supply me with the DCS font I'll give it a royal go through today and post something up. If you guys don't remember me, check out my deviantart website: wankey.deviantart.com
  18. I can find really good high res USAF wallpapers but nothing good about Russian airplanes. Anyone have a resource? Thanks
  19. Anyone wanna have a go at this? Please be detailed, I can understand more indepth discussions. Passive vs Active.
  20. In a word, no. I'm doing elec. engineering at my university and I'm working as a graphics designer at a huge company (I won't tell you but it's got something to do with a cellphone *hint* *hint*). They're paying me way much more than any pre-grad electrical job I would've gotten (plus most 2nd year jobs are like paper pushers or database entry) Did my university teach me anything for a graphics designer? hell no. It's something that I love to do, and I'm good at. Going to school never taught me anything. Everything is self learnt in the end, if you think about it. If you really love it, you should be learning it before anyone needs to push you in that direction. I don't need to pay a 5000 dollar tuition fee to learn something that I already know.
  21. Yeah same, when lockon came out my computer was compeltely crappy, but how many years has it been now? I hope 1.2 has heatblur switched on.
  22. No, you're absolutely right. I'm wondering if anyone can mod it in. It's just a small tweak that gives all engines a slight heat blur.
