  1. Perhaps I can offer a face saving off ramp for Mr. SharpeXB. Maybe pilots are requied to thoroughly familiarize themselves with checklists, maybe in case of emergencies, where time is of the essence. However, checklist, if not, should be mandatory for all present day pilots. Could you imagine, while on a trip to New Orleans, your Boing 747 pilot telling you "I don't really need these checklists." What would you tell him/her? Remember, no obsenities.
  2. Would the armed forces trust any pilot to use mere memory for a multi-million dollar jet? I would think that check list are mandatory. I am in complete agreement with cfrag. Hopefully, one day, we will have check list for all jets, with section tabs.
  3. Whenever I fly a route, how do I know what altitude to fly for each waypoint?
  4. Hello friends, I am looking for a F18 Super Carrier TUTORIAL from ENTERING the Marshal area to all the way to a case 1 landing (recovery). Can any of you brother or sisters point me to a youtube video with that topic or something similar?
  5. Is it possible to see the new clouds without going to Mission Editor; that is, can I see the clouds in "Instant Action," "Create Fast Mission," or "Mission"? I just want to see the new clouds.
  6. Where are my purchased planes I just got the G2 and I immediately downloaded DCS vr Steam version. I started the game, in Steam, but I get no F18, Super Carrier, not even a way to install them in Steam VR . Help please.
  7. Thanks Thanks for the info. I think I will wait for DCS to come up with a solution/fix.
  8. Kengou, thanks a lot. I might have to learn how to populate an airport.
  9. Hello fellow simmers; I would like to know if there is a land base airport, in any theater, with as much aircraft activity as on the Supercarriers? The stock airbases are so barren and lifeless, other than the static aircraft. I like the idea of human movement as well as aircraft landing and takeoff. Thanks in advance.
  10. Nightstalker's post is the real topic Unfortunately, I have been listening to the back and forth of so many post here. I have come to the conclusion that many of us, though unwillingly, subject ourselves to illogical and seriously flawed argumentation. ED is, in fact, doing what any monopoly does in a profits first economy; they are merely practicing the main constituent of Corporate Capitalism. The problem, as stated by Nightstalker, is competition, which is the corner stone of capitalism. It is not only our right to complain, but it is our duty. It is the pressure, not the acquiescence, that gets things done effectively and efficiently. Has anyone on this site ever attempted to speculate the amount of money ED has made over the years. We are the customers and we deserve respect, not just from ED, but from all institutions that strictly adhere to a concept completely devoid of moral business consciousness.
  11. Thanks to all of you. Today, I begin my journey to multiplayer heaven. One last thing, can anyone recommend a site which specifically pair advance players with newbies?
  12. SRS Thanks Dooom. One more question, is Discord and SRS the same thing or does one work inside the other or, are they completely different programs? I am just getting myself familiar with some of the many terms used in the genre. Note: is it OK if I, every now and then, ask a question of you, for additional help? By the way, I have been playing DCS way back when it was called Lock-On.
  13. Hi everyone; last week I installed SRS, got it running and everything. My first attempt at multiplayer left me full of fear. I am a retired senior, and I am not sure if I really understand the gibberish I saw when clicking "Multiplayer" inside of DCS World. Is there a site or a few brave souls willing to help a brother out in figuring out the mess I have gotten myself into. When I saw the many different servers, I freaked out and ran, and this was last week. Today I finally gathered up the courage to ask for help. Help help help williehayesjr@gmail.com. Any suggestions, sites, documentations or other types of help is welcomed--I am begging.
  14. F/A-18C Training Tutorial Jizzbomb, I have been asking the same question. I am not sure if ED is in the business of making chronologically sequential training tutorials. Such a tutorial is a needed product which would benefit both beginners and our more advance players. If there is anyone out there that think this is a task to take on, I can assure you that all newcomers will flock to purchase your product. Could you imagine walking up to your aircraft, with your instructor and a course syllabus, climbing in and starting up your jet for your first lesson at a land base and subsequently a Carrier. Such a program, if in dept, can demand a price equal to the cost of a DCS jet. I know I would purchase it, even before I buy another new Jet--maybe that is why I have not purchase anything after the F/A-18C and the pre-purchased Carrier.
  15. Using Simple Radio Standalone for Battery Powered COMM 1 I just watched a new video on using the simple radio without starting an engine. My only problem is that I do not know how to put in the tower radio freq, which is require, when I play an "Instant Action" cold and dark start. I would think that if I create a mission, I could insert the Tower Freq in the Mission Editor.
