Game Mode?

Recommended Posts

When I learned to fly the Black Shark some years ago, I started flying it in Game Mode, then switched to Sim after I had gotten used to the controls and cockpit.  Apparently, Game Mode has never been implemented on the Mi-24, even in the latest updates.  Does anyone know if it is planned for the AH-64?

I'd expect some kind of easy mode, but which is something related to controls and keybindings and not like Arma's flight model's game mode.

Banned by cunts.

Early Access products have historically not gotten Game Mode at all. In fact I can't think of any product in the last few years that has had Game Mode implemented that started out in early access?

There is no game mode needed…. If u want fly arcade, play some other game. 
if u want to learn… start training in simulation mode. Otherwise the training makes no sense. 
 

the Developedment of a game mode is a waste of resources.

I dont have any information about game mode currently, I imagine it will be low priority.

Kind of like learning to write a coherent sentence is a waste of time?

Same here, not so much the controls but to get used to HUD symbology and other cockpit switches - definitely. In fact I still fire it up in game mode every now and then, if I'm pressed for time and just want to get in and blow stuff up for a few minutes. For me - Would be nice to have, but not at the expense of the closest I will ever get to the real thing.

These days for modules that don't implement it, I just climb that learning curve and make use of the pause and restart mission functions to give my ageing brain a chance to catch up. Invulnerability, no fog of war, unlimited weapons and fuel FTW... but I guess I'm not hardcore 😛

It has nothing to do with elitism. As an example:

Does it make sence if you buy a Supercar like a Lamborghini , but u use only the first gear because u dont want to learn to drive ? 

with the DCS Moduls its the same, the cost a lot of money. And if u buy them , why u dont want to use them fully ? 

 

Its not hard to learn a modul. There are plenty tutorial videos available. U can learn to start and simply fly around within 1 Hour . To learn all asspects of a modul u will need more than a couple of weeks. But this will be much more rewarding.

 

And the developers working realy hard , puttin in a "Game"Mode will be even more work. For what ? If u only want to fly arround and kill everything , their are much better "Games" available.

Rewarding to you. Maybe he likes the simplicity and if you can’t understand that, it’s ok, that’s the nice thing about dcs is you can have dudes who just want to do the simple thing and dudes who go down the checklist. It’s a sandbox.  He’s welcome here even if you don’t think he should be because it’s a “sim not a game.” That’s sim elitism

 

If someone bought a Lamborghini they can do whatever they want with it, it’s theirs
