VNAO T-45 Goshawk

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to say, thank you; thank you very much to the VNAO team.

The superbly made 'Goshawk' made me come back, to the DCS World.

 

At the current time, everything has to be monetised: unfinished modules, meaningless DLCs, mini soundtracks...

You gave this gift, to everyone. My humble compliments, to the development team; the T-45 is an excellent and altruistic work of art!

 

 

Stay safe and healthy; kind regards

Attached is a Helios two screen version of the T-45.  Before the updated, the MFDs on the second screen were very clear.  Now then are unreadable.  The Change log does not indicate a modification of fonts, etc.  In my profile, the UFC, except for the two dials, are controllable with key commands that I added.  The two MFDs are controllable from my TM Cougar MFDs as there were just two many keys to added. 

Same for me.

 

But thanks for integrating the script-line into the MFD-lua for supporting 2nd monitor display.

Just flew it in multiplayer on some server I found in browser with nice guy who allowed me back seat. We made few traps and feel is awesome in multicrew. What I hope will be fixed is synced gear/flaps/hook and airbrakes at least. When I flew as back seat i had no way to control those and ended belly landed on arrier. Looks like only pilot controls real gear/hook/flaps and airbrakes and back seat can only set it to graphically sync.

@MadMaxter Thank you for this masterpiece! love your work and from your team. Thank you for this mod, i´m truly grateful and looks everyone too 🙂

 

Ok, about the mod itself and improvements: can you and your team correct the weight on wheels please? the T-45 model needs more WoW, it´s too high if you compare with real footage. May be a minor visual thing but it matters at least for me 🙂

 

Thank you and keep up the excellent work!

Regards,

Bruno.

The weight on wheels strut height is a known issue and on the list of things to be addressed. We’re on it. Thanks for the input and the kind words. We are humbled by the positive response.

Yikes! I don't have that command. Only "Throttle Grip".
Hmmm, should I try to delete the T-45 input folder, in case this was added in the new version? TIA
Cheers!

I thought that be the case, but the mission came with an ICLS signal of 10 so that confused me.

Thanks.

@Baldawg Hey Bri...got home and tried it out, got so much mapped thanks to you.  With the TM Warthog, the only control that needed special editing was the Tailhook which I just reversed the 1.0 - 0.0 values to get it to work.  Great job as always!

Hey Don,  been away from the forums for a bit....glad to here the edits came in handy.  Looks like they put in a bunch in the updated version.

Small change that will return large benefits- Getting the instrument pointers correct on all of the round instruments, including backup and engine gauges, and the backup instrument number fonts readable, will pay dividends in readability and immersion. The pointers are generic at this point, too long and thin, with the entire needle white, which makes the module look artificial and difficult to read, but when they are refined, the cockpit will come alive. While I understand that many DCS players are HUD cripples, the T45 HUD is difficult to read, so the backup instruments need to be referenced.

 

The aircraft handles well. It’s highly recommended and is where future Tomcat and Hornet drivers should start. Who knew that a trainer would be so valuable to train pilots for advanced aircraft? 😉

 

I know it’s a labor of love for you gents, and it shows.

Hi,

 

A little bug report.

 

The canopy cannot be closed from the aft seat, the click zone to close the canopy stay in the position where the handle is when the canopy is close.

It works perfectly fine for me from the backseat with both handles front & aft(Last build)

I found that Hook bypass that was clickable and working on release v1.0 with 1.0.1 didn't work anymore.

Other issue, the NAV frequency selector for ILSm  and ICLS, it cannot go over 117.95 frequency settings.

Are this two issue a mine problem or a common bug?

This module seems great addition to DCS. Just started learning this aircraft, and I have curious problem of pilot reflection stuttering (to be precise: the reflection is jumpin up and down when the aircraft is turning) on MFDs. Purely cosmetic problem, but I was interested if this was a known issue or just my DCS installation problem (2.7 latest)?

 

Thanks again for the module.

 

Edit. Here is a link to video showing the jumpy reflection on MFDs:

A big Sierra Hotel and thank you to anyone who had anything to do with creating this mod. It is wonderful. After four attempts I was able to make my first ever trap. ED should thank you too. This airplane got me to buy the Super Carrier.

 

Me too - bought the carrier yesterday.  Couldn't be bothered with the complexity of the F-18 but this T-45 is just perfect and (hopefully) will get better as more is added.

 

Next, the BAe Hawk needs to be resurrected!!  It is literally criminal that this was not kept up-to-date!

No, it does not. You cannot close the canopy with the rear handle. See the track attached.

Why don't you turn the MFD's on? When they're dark, they are just glass, so reflections can certainly be an issue. I agree, there is something weird about that, but I do not see this when they are in use which should be anytime you're flying...

True, I just wanted to know if my installation is somehow corrupted, since I recall seeing this kind of issue once earlier (I think it was F-16 early version). If others are seeing this then I guess we can assume this is DCS wide issue, not just this module.

Stand by, I'll fly with them off and see if I see the issue...
