  1. There's a table of TACAN frequencies here, if this helps: https://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/Instrument_Landing_System_(ILS)_Frequencies
  2. For any given set of conditions (weight, IAS, MACH etc) there will be an optimum sweep angle. It is the job of the auto control to match this as best it can. I'd be surprised if a human pilot could do significantly better.
  3. I'd guess that they put brightness and contrast knobs there in the real aircraft because they needed adjustment depending on conditions...
  4. It seems readable enough to me if you adjust the contrast and brightness.
  5. The castoring behaviour seems a little odd to me too. It isn't usually a problem on an airfield, but can get awkward quickly on a carrier with any obstructions at all. Particularly with the sort of relative wind over the deck needed for launches at high weights, since it tends to turn into the wind even when you don't want it to. Modelling the guy with the tiller clearly isn't practical, but it did occur to me that a (hopefully) relatively simple fix might be to add some sort of 'straighten nose wheel' command that could only be activated when the aircraft was stopped. This might at least simulate the deck crew helping out with steering to some extent, without making everything too easy.
  6. Or at least, they thought it was.
  7. The left rudder pedal is invisible under night lighting: see screenshot: Latest open beta version.
  8. Ice? Not sure if it's modelled, but IRL this can happen in the right conditions, e.g. descending through cloud. There is a pitot heater switch on the left forward console.
  9. Or you can plot it with a compass and ruler, and measure the resultant angle with a protractor, like any competent old-fashioned ships navigator should be able to do. Don't need maths to do trigonometry.
  10. As I understand it, a real-world Hornet can only be catapulted with external tanks if they are either entirely full, or completely empty. I'd guess that is the reason they are done that way.
  11. A few Erks may have been Oiks, but it wasn't a requirement...
  12. The T-45 mod needs the Visual C runtime installed, apparently, that might be the one needed. I think 'vc_redist.x64.exe' from here is the relevant one. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads-2647da03-1eea-4433-9aff-95f26a218cc0
  13. Forum polls are generally a poor way to determine the view of forum contributors, and an even poorer way to determine the views of the wider customer base. From the numbers participating, it seems self-evident that most people who will have seen the poll weren't sufficiently interested in the idea to consider it worth voting, one way or the other. All the poll really tells us is that currently there are maybe 15 people who might participate in a hypothetical subscription service.
