  1. The supercarrier module has a female ATC voice, so there has been movement on this. Hopefully when the rest of the ATC overhaul is completed, it will bring more female controllers to the mix too.
  2. Why would you even need convergence when the guns are all on the centreline?
  3. You could do a lot worse than checking out RAF Air UK. We are a friendly, wide-ranging unit, with a thriving Harrier Squadron, and many other airframes to fly with and against represented by other Squadrons too. RAF Air UK (rafairuk-dcs.co.uk)
  4. I see the fix for the missing Case II calls didn't make it into the latest update. Any chance of reminding the team please BIGNEWY?
  5. When there are multiple Super Carriers in a mission, jumping to the LSO platform resulted in appearing on the wrong ship. Both myself and another player were on the Roosevelt, but when we jumped to the LSO platform we found ourselves on the Washington.
  6. Make sure your radiators are open when you see the gauge rising. Also, do not let your airspeed drop too much or the reduced airflow through the radiator will mean they are ineffective.
  7. Isn't that just called a broomstick?
  8. I do get that, but you have to ask yourself if it is a priority, or just a very very insignificant problem in the big picture that is DCS World. Aren’t there bigger fish to fry?
  9. Historically, the Super Carrier module was chalked in as part of the Hornet package. This was later changed because it became a much bigger project with additional features incorporated, so ED changed it to a stand alone module, and compensated Hornet purchasers with a substantial discount when purchasing the Super Carrier. Clearly the marketing info hasn't been updated to reflect that change, which is a problem.
  10. The easy fix for this is not to move before you align. Why would you screw up an alignment deliberately? Yes, you have a point, it is not what one would expect, but looking for issues like this will just stop the correction of more important issues if it is addressed. It should be noted, but sent to the bottom of the list I would suggest. In a couple of words, “so what?”
  11. The point being, if you have 2 separate roles, why need stores options if you select an airframe based on role? Should we get a Super Hornet, of course, it's a different animal entirely.
  12. Why is it an issue when you can choose one or the other anyway? It might be a different approach, but it does keep it simple for mission writing. Or do you expect the AWACS guys to double up and do both tasks in the same mission? I don't expect they ever do that in reality do they?
  13. The solution, we discovered through the error log is that DCS needs to be run in admin mode. Once we did that, it worked perfectly.
  14. Installing SLMod onto a server running 3 separate virtual servers, and we get a error message as follows: {string "slmod sendData0"]:1: attempt to index global "slmod" (is a nil value) stack trackback: [C]:? string "slmod.sendData)"]:1: in main chunk Do you know how we fix it?
  15. Take a look at RAF Air UK. We have a number of squadrons flying different airframes and have a good number of highly experienced ex servicemen pilots who give us excellent insight into real world tactics and training. You can find us at rafairuk-dcs.co.uk we are a friendly relaxed bunch too. Neil
  16. What has this to do with the radar locking out of arc? I suggest you might have a mapping issue in answer to your question, but hijacking a thread instead of starting a specific one is really not a good move.
  17. Did you remember the fuel cut off levers? It sounds to me like the engine isn't getting fuel. They're the red levers above your head.
  18. Unless you carry out the correct join, you shouldn’t be surprised to miss calls. For case 1 recoveries, Signal Charlie should be received when you are holding (2000 ft, 5 mile rad circle with starboard side centred on the carrier. Then you descend out of the holding pattern starting Abeam the carrier Descending to 800 ft and 350 knots to join the pattern slightly starboard of the carrier commencing about .5 to 1.5 miles ahead. Descend to 600 ft and on speed AOA On the downwind leg before turning for finals and entering the groove at about 3/4 miles astern and on runway centreline. Anything else, and why would you even expect to get the correct calls?
  19. Keeping half an eye on the Velocity Vector tells you when you are entering a dive or climb before the lights show it I think. So I use the HUD, but very sparingly. Eyes out of the cockpit 90% of the time. One other factor you haven't mentioned yet between you is tanker airspeed. Always keep it nice and high for the F-16, so you don't fall back into a flight regime with flaps and slats deployed. I also make a point of switching to the Cat III flight envelope as it makes the controls a little less sensitive, which helps with stability. Other than that, practice practice practice. It is a very difficult evolution, and you need to stick at it to become proficient. You also need to stay current, because you will lose your edge without regular training.
  20. Interesting debate. When someone disagrees, you ignore them? I'll have to bring that concept to the debating society, they'll love it! It'll go nicely with a ginger face cream and abysmal comb over!
  21. You need a minimum of 16Gb of RAM. Take a look at EDs specifications for that. Without it, your multiplayer experience will not be good.
  22. In real life, they'd hear your low fuel state on check in, and direct you to the tanker before entry into the pattern.
