Hi HB,

Here's my own list:

TO DO:
A-95-GR (USN + IRIAF)
A-135-GR (early)
Pilot eject command display indication
F110 nozzle indicators in B cockpit
Jester radar work and new features (v2)
Jester TimeToGo
Jester nav fix
Jester MLC option?
TARPS functionality
AIM-54 new API
ECM fairings

 

TO FIX:

Hole in the back when canopy open (external)
Canopy glass no effects from inside (external)
model rudder glitch
over-wing vapours (DCS limitations for wing sweep?)
cannot see left wheels or wheel chocks from the cockpit
Canopy glass no effects from outside, looking from cockpit head out?
HUD green glass tint spill on side glasses
black glitches on sides out of canopy view
Helmet knob on internal pilots
RIO radio knobs pointers
altimeter thousands digits too small and grey [DCSF14-434]
see through VDI and HSD (DCS limitation)
CVN launch at night reacts to binding instead of actual lights' state
CVN compatibility (crew signals, comms, ICLS, FLOLS) esp. for A
AB/DLC and cockpit switches sounds + radalt sounds vol
AP switch bind stops working after messing with SAS switches
Jester setting Groom Lake ATC to 38.600
bomb/rocket reticle jumping
ejection seat arm/dearm sound loop
refueling light gain
no TCS/LANTIRN image in first mission in MT/VR
aircraft can retract the gear on the ground and stand up again by lowering it!!!
AoA indexer brightness dial below 6 makes 2 of the 3 lights cut out

 

Wishlist:

canopy fog and ice

icing conditions for instruments and engines
pylon and weapons G and airspeed limits
advanced radar and missile RIO options
external equipment and crew when starting
kneeboard on the leg

This list looks great, 
i would like to add:

TO FIX: 

please fix the AIM54A in TWS  - it goes only up in the sky and will not follow the guidance after last patch

btw:

Jester radar work and new features (v2) = Jester 2.0

external equipment and crew when starting = Ground crew for the power/airflow connection animations (likes F-4E)

I agree, now with the release of the F-4 there could be some long awaited improvements to the TomCat. Finally, maybe also adjust the texture of the pilot.

Hi @IronMike,

1. first of all, congrats the F-4E success delivery. I have played it and I like the lots of new designs that HB has implemented.

2. I believe that F-14AB is the golden masterpiece in one of the HB products and I think that many users would like to see it shines as F-4E. Is it possible kindly to review our list (above) and let us know that HB has any planning to make us surprises in the future ED releases?

Thanks a lots!!

Per @PhantomHans comment, I am still thinking our list may be going to be an "add-on" upgrade since HB developers need the funding to work on them because nothing is free. 

I guess 🙂

Per @photobahman comment...

Which one? The user has 0 posts.

Our list, apart from a few wish items, is normal EA process, bug fixing and module maintenance, which we already paid for.

I'm willing to pay if they're willing to do the work.

I'm not willing to pay $69.99 for a copy of the existing B with a new HUD but if they're willing to do the work I could see $10.99 or something.

Have you tried paying Razbam?  It's starting to look like NOT paying Razbam isn't working too good.

Hi @Naquaii, sorry for the bother that we have a TODO list for F-14, can HB review for us?  Thanks.

I'm not the right person to ask about this, I'm only the researcher. But I do know that there's an internal todo list for stuff to be done before it's considered out of EA.

Any chance of a peek at this 'To-do' list?  Would like to see what, if anything, is missing.

Not for me to share, as in not my decision. But sufficive to say, there is one.

I think that it should be part of Jester 2.0 that Jester calls the tanker for "ready pre-contact".

Hi Heatblur, what about making a 2-position command for the flaps in the Tomcat? I think its a important command.

Why do you think non-existent switch is important as command? Which flaps btw?

I'll go out on a limb and assume he's asking for a single 2-way switch binding in addition to the current individual up and down bindings for the landing flaps.

Doesn't seem that unreasonable, if that's the case.
