  1. Apologies in advanced if this is an oft repeated question, but how much does it cost to rent a server for DCS? I’m in the UK so here or EU is what I’m after. Thanks in advance
  2. Was it not the case in earlier versions an AWACS would be automatically there but now you have to purchase it and give it a route to fly? Could be that?
  3. No worries, I didn’t think you were being rude. Update: Well I was wrong about the ATFLIR causing roll when you have an Aim 120 on the other cheek, but fire even one of your Aim 9s and the FBW system dose not compensate for it. Does the A10 have something up it’s sleeve to counteract asymmetrical loads? I seem to remember it does but it’s been a long time since I took the Hog for a spin.
  4. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for, thank you! Subscribed and very much looking forward to more of your videos, bravo sir. edit, DCS and 40k content! (Battle Fleet Gothic at least) = me a very happy chap
  5. I don’t know if it would, though it seems plausible to me. If you have an asymmetric load the fly by wire doesn’t help much, still needs trimming out. Though I could be (and probably am) wrong, I don’t think fly by wire = straight and level flight at all times. As an example if you have an Aim 120 on one side and the Tpod on the other then there is a bit of roll, both on the F16 and F18. I find it more subtle in the Hornet (due to the Amram counter weight) but it’s there. Anyway as I said, if it’s correct as is then super dooper, if not maybe it could be added. Seeing as I’m here I thought I’d add that the issue with buildings not rendering in the Tpod is pretty bad. I have view distance set to High and, off the top of my head, at anything above 20 miles away those poor little tanks look terribly exposed.
  6. I am a pilchard! just been back through the book and the dumb bomb drop was from 10k feet and CCIP was not mentioned. “Steep dive” lead me to believe it was CCIP but as mentioned here that could just as likely be AUTO. The 13k ft attack was in fact a guns run, start at 15k and pull up at 13k. That is pretty impressive and I deffo couldn’t do that in DCS! Can’t make out targets in VR from that height. So I’m an idiot haha! Apologies and I’ll get my coat…
  7. Could be, I’ll try and find it today. I was reading the Osprey publishings Hornet units in OIF part one. My memory is not the most reliable
  8. I was attempting to hit targets, such as trucks, with CCIP and not go bellow 12k ft. But I can’t make out ground targets above 10k ft so was hoping the tgp would help me. Read recently about Hornet pilots in OIF doing CCIP drops and staying above 13k so wanted to give it a try, didn’t say what the target was mind.
  9. Has it always been this way? I mean I assume it is supposed to be like this (which is a bit of a shame) but was this possible when the Hornet first came out? I remember CCIPing onto the target diamond years ago, or was this with the Harrier? Anyway, thanks for the answers chaps
  10. Been trying to use the tgp whilst dropping mk82s in ccip and beyond scoping out the target area before rolling in I can’t see it as being able to help. I thought I could get the target diamond to mark the target for me so I have something to aim at as I roll in but this doesn’t seem to be the case as it forces Auto bomb mode. Is this just the way of things or am I missing something?
  11. There is a mod that will make them black and white, might help. Sorry don’t have a link but shouldn’t be hard to find. As for the cut off text on the right ddi, it’s how it’s supposed to be. (Same for the colour of the ddi’s) I don’t know if you can edit the colours with lua file editing, might be possible but I have no clue.
  12. Thanks for the speedy reply. Though I do understand that the devs strive for authenticity, and we very much appreciate that, this particular issue raises an interesting conundrum when it comes to the authenticity of our Hornet. I for one would back what raus suggests for MSI etc. just my 2 pence worth.
  13. Well said sir Do you know how the team feel about improvising a bit when it comes to these features and implementing some of raus’s suggestions re the docs used? Would be great to know one way or the other.
  14. Haha I hate this feature of the Hornet! I assume this feature was added when they had “bring your granny to work” day at the factory. All the grannies agreed it was a a dreadful waste of electricity to leave it on.
  15. Buy the SC in a sale and if possible use some miles, I paid about five of my English pounds for it. Money well spent, love having it and greatly improves the Hornet experience. Also I’d take ED making money this way over starting a whole new aircraft module. That being said I can see why there is some frustration but I’m sure it’ll all get sorted out.
