  1. Yes there were some changes in the recent OB update. Many of the time flow/UI related controls were moved to the “UI Layer” section of adjust controls. I believe the new default binding for show FPS is right Ctrl + Pause.
  2. In the most recent update, they moved the time controls into the UI Layer section of adjust controls. You should be able to see and re-bind the controls there.
  3. If I remember correctly, the most recent beta patch moved quite a few of the simulation specific controls into the “UI Layer” section in the adjust controls menu.
  4. Are you using the stable build of DCS or the open beta?
  5. though they seem to be on a very small scale, as opposed to the whole user skin library. Wasn’t the p-47 just one skin or am I mistaken?
  6. Yes, the viper is squirrelly on landing, takeoff, and taxi there is still some flight modeling work to be done, so it might be a bit easier to control in the future. The narrow space between the main gear is the cause for it having a tendency to roll. In my experience, you can leave the speed brakes fully extended during your final approach, and flare just before you hit the runway and idle the throttle, be sure to keep the velocity vector in the [ and at the 3 degree pitch down line during final. Once you touch down, don’t let the nose gear touch the runway for as long as possible don’t apply any break, once it touches apply some light breaking. When your ground speed gets low enough you can start to apply more brake.
  7. As nice as that would be, it’s up to the skin creators to maintain their files. I imagine there are some potential legal concerns when it comes to adding third party skins to the game. Namely, intellectual property and in the case of skins representing active units, permissions and licensing. In any case it’s likely that the process would be more complex than it would seem.
  8. Yes, this would be very cool. Considering that the A10C has the ability to set and join Datalink groups, I’m fairly confident a system like that will be available for the F-16 and F/A-18.
  9. Yes, they have been this way for a while. To my knowledge the only “fix” is a rework to thermal mapping and, probably, to how contrast locking in the mavs work. I have heard that thermal mapping re-works are in progress along side the ATFLIR pod. I’m not sure if your intention is to file a bug report, or to just vent. If this is an attempt at a bug report, ED will likely want a track file anyway regardless of its stability for long duration tracks. I understand that it can be frustrating, but fixes will be applied in time.
  10. I have only tried two HOTAS personally: The HOTAS Warthog and the CH Pro Throttle, and Fighterstick. The CH Pro products are pretty durable, I used them for a few years, though my Pro Throttle had a very poorly made mini-stick (The sensor would stick in the middle) and a very jittery throttle axis, considering that the pair is somewhere between $200-300 that might be a deal breaker. I was able to work through those issues and I had a large number of controls that I was able bind, plus the Fighterstick and pro throttle are great facsimile for the F-16 HOTAS. The CH Pro setup has a very light joystick and throttle throw. The HOTAS Warthog has some improvements over the CH Pro stuff, mainly they are a replica A-10C HOTAS and have a lot of buttons and switches. The major drawback of the HOTAS Warthog would seem to be cost cutting in some critical areas. Some of the buttons are of a lesser quality, my flap switch on the throttle was misaligned and would not always send signals in the forward position, and the Joystick base has a plastic gimbal with low quality grease that lends to a loss of precision control and "Sticktion" (this can be solved with new grease or a stick extension). Overall the extremely precise Hall effect sensors in the Warthog were immediately noticeable. I have heard excellent things about Virpil and VKB controls, but I have no experience with those companies.
  11. It takes away resources from Heatblur maybe, but I don’t think it has much of an impact on DCS World core development, there are separate teams for that.
  12. If you go to the DCS homepage you can log into your DCS World account. Once you are logged in you can click “Profile” on the top of the page. In your profile, scroll down to the newsletter section and click the grey unsubscribe button.
  13. Well, you got me on this one. I am not sure what is causing your issue, If you have any mods, you could try disabling them. You could also try a game repair, or uninstall the F-16 and reinstall it.
  14. It might be possible to limit gameplay in a mission, but as far as I know, I thought that the full fidelity versions of aircraft are used as a default. Check in your game settings in the main menu, should be a tab called gameplay, make sure "Game Flight Mode" and "Game Avionics Mode" are not enabled. That might solve your problem.
  15. If you access the radio menu and talk to the F8 ground crew there is an option to switch your HMD for NVG, it’s similar to how the Ka-50 does it.
