  1. I don't think IndiaFotxEcho will bring that project to DCS. Two seater, very complex. MSFS and DCS are two completely different ballparks coding-wise and what kind of accuracy is expected.
  2. Depends on who it's supposed to help. As I player, it can be difficult to track what is reported or not. If I encounter an issue, where do I even start finding out if it is a known bug? Ask around? Spend hours digging through the forums? If a new player purchase a module, how does he even know the current status and what is working or not? We are giving a lot of our precious time to ED by testing and reporting. So in my mind, a clear and concise list is not unreasonable to ask for? Or we can just move along as usual. But there's better way to go about reporting and lessen frustrations both for ED and it's playerbase.
  3. It's not about balancing, it's about available time and priority to get it right. Usually there is some sort of synergy in the development cycle. For example Super Carrier updates will most likely yield Hornet updates. So when ED turns back into navy stuff again and advertise the big Super Carrier features we will likely see more progression on the Hornet (as a Hornet in good shape will sell more Super Carrier DLC's). Common sense really.
  4. It's well known that the Hornet radar underperforms and is acting strange in a lot of situations. Not only that, but the missing MIDS system (that makes Hornet a 4th gen) ain't helping either. It's not user error. Hopefully ED will adress some of those issues when the big Super Carrier update is released.
  5. Thanks! EN2 did make it a little bit better. Not great, not terrible.
  6. Is there any plans to rework the current warning sounds? Bitchin' Betty (and Rus naggin Rita) has a lower pitch and monotone sound compared to the current EN/CH voices. Might be a bit silly, but I know a few players who have stopped flying JF-17 mainly because of the warning sounds annoys them in a bad way I tried to convinced them to download soundmods, but they won't do it. Here is a very short example of the J-10 warning (in the beginning of video) In the first seconds, you can hear a lower pitch and monotone warning sound being closer to other voices such as Betty or Rita.
  7. The repair could be more fun if it was tied to the damage model. Seeing what individual parts and system was damaged during the flight etc.
  8. Cool video of live fire from "Bushranger" UH-1H. Very close to the Huey we have in DCS. The only thing really missing is the twin M60 mounts. More interesting info can be found here https://www.radschool.org.au/Books/Bushranger2.pdf
  9. @Digitalvole My advice is try first with "Free to play". Unless ED has done some multithreading magic, we are talking many sensors, screens and HMD in VR flying at low levels. Will it run great? No, not for anyone. But it might be acceptable and enjoyable if your system can handle, it just like other modules in VR.
  10. Hi! Recently got a new GFX card and was a bit curious how It would perform with my old CV1. From what I have read, you nowdays need a Facebook account. Or you can use your old Home account for another year. But is it possible to get going without installing Oculus Home at all? Some kind of workaround, OTT driver only or something?
  11. It's realistic. But you can change this effect in Special Options. A new Feature not a bug.
  12. ...or call the Hornet pilots in advance and ask them to please load AIM-7's
  13. Well, it might take longer... Some fixes are easy, some are difficult. I don't ask ED to pull every development hour available to deal with this situation. It would be absurd as they have tons of other things and modules to deal with. But when every year has 12 months and I don't see any maintenance on this module, I think it's very reasonable to not recommend it until we have a clearer picture what ED's endgame with this module is. As a fan of the F-5E and Eagle Dynamics products in general, I really hope they come around.
  14. I have stopped recommending the F-5E. The module is not being properly maintained and I would love to hear an honest response from the developers why they can't dedicate a few hours ironing out the bugs and finishing up some of the systems, like the RWR. This module came out over 5 YEARS ago. It's sad that it is not in a better shape by now. And while I heard something about a possible texture update... that is really the least of my problem with this module right now. If Eagle Dynamics decide to give this bird some attention again, I will be the first to recommend it.
  15. Another thing to consider is that R60 allows for tight turns and evade enemy fire. Flying ultra low at high speeds. It’s launch and leave. The O’s will be good if you are not spotted and has time to setup your attack. So while the O’s will be more surprising and render flares useless, they won’t be as effective in a self protect situation.
