F-14 A/B feature follow-up and wish list

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.

👍...I asked about it for a long time ago. They made a 2-way switch for the hook but not for the landing- take off flaps. I really miss it. You agree?

No, I don’t have a 2-way switch I’d use for that but I understand those that do

I'm looking forward to the functions of Jester 2.0 in the Tomcat. Also to a functioning TARPS pod.

I'd really wish Heatblur would fix Jester's not completing the startup checklist (arm seat, turn on ADI and altimeter) and also the long-known bug where the AI wingman's Tomcat's wings are clipping through the fuselage.

Hi @Tomcatter87, thanks and I totally forgot the TARPS pod.  We do have "Jester 2.0" in the list (updated).  About "arm seat, turn on ADI and altimeter...", it is part of my muscle memory so I am not sure that it is a wish list or something else.

TARPS functionality was already on the list and "Jester assisted starup bugs/incomplete" should go into "To fix" part.

And if we're at that please add "Jester assisted startup without cockpit hints" to the "Wish list" as it had been requested by users. Thanks.

Hi @draconus, thanks for watching out while I was multitasking for my works and updating the list.

To fix:

- RIO's ECMD does not power down

- mirrors don't react to canopy angle change

 

Have to test more on the A but it seems this has been corrected:

CVN compatibility (crew signals, comms, ICLS, FLOLS) esp. for A

1. Flap lever position need to be tweaked.
Current in-game up/down position is Emergency up down position.image.png?ex=666eab88&is=666d5a08&hm=d8a

2nd. Mil/afterburner throttle range incorrect

image.png?ex=666e55b3&is=666d0433&hm=dd0image.png?ex=666e6768&is=666d15e8&hm=3f4

 

The MIL detent is away from where it should be, (See the RPM with throttle at MIL marking) too short mil-max range

They actually gamified it on purpose.

- Jester MLC option?
- TARPS functionality

- 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?

- 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

- 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
- please fix the AIM54A in TWS  - it goes only up in the sky and will not follow the guidance after last patch
- GBU-24 wording shown on the Jester issue
- pilot killable/eject ratio adjustment (compare with the RIO survival ratio)
- the AI wingman's Tomcat's wings are clipping through the fuselage
- Jester assisted starup bugs/incomplete
- RIO's ECMD does not power down
- mirrors don't react to canopy angle change

Wish List:
- canopy fog and ice
- icing conditions for instruments and engines
- pylon and weapons G and airspeed limits
- advanced radar and missile RIO options
- kneeboard on the leg
- a 2-position command for the flaps
- Jester assisted startup without cockpit hints

 

 

Two things I didn’t see on your list:

-Jester currently not visible anymore in Jester Selection wheel , only empty aircraft ( on MT) 

-model error : In pilot cockpit , on the RMI, the top left orientation marker is not placed at the correct 45 degree interval between the 270 and 360 degree markers.

Hi @Snappy for the 2nd item about model error, is there more information or the thread for it so that I can read more?  Thanks.

Hi @draconus, @wwWolfcom and @Snappy, please review the following updates and I am not sure about the model error.

I would like to take this list and post on the HB discord f-14-general channel, is it okay?  

Thanks.

I'm fine with it. Just keep in mind it's not a complete list by all means. It started as my own pet peeves list, then made it more full of most obvious and frequently seen bugs and omissions, adding some wish list on top.

Here's the BDHI bug explained:

It's clear that one arrow is off. The whole image is rotated a bit. @Snappy What is RMI?

It’s an acronym for “radio magnetic indicator” , a more generic / civilian term for this type of instrument as it is common in IFR equipped larger transport aircraft.

But you’re absolutely correct in the context of the F-14 it should be called by it’s official name, BDHI

 

@scommander2 For me the list is fine as well, as long as you put with a disclaimer that it is not complete.

Just the status update: I had PM to @NineLine and @BIGNEWY about the rule of this forum for sharing our list at the discord F-14 general channel, and @NineLine is okay with it.

I will post this forum link and the list at discord, and hope HB can provide us some feedbacks.

Thank all's help 🙂

Regarding the item "refueling light gain", I would say it's more than just gain but also angle of the light as well - which is easily 30-40 degrees off!

The thread about this goes back at least to Sept 2020 (yes, approaching four years now) when @IronMike said he had forgotten to put a tracker for the issue but he did it nonetheless. In every ED release since then, without a fail, I immediately scroll down to the list of fixes for the Tomcat to see whether this issue has been addressed or not. Needless to say, I have been disappointed far too many times. In my view, this is a top issue that needs to be fixed as a high priority item as it prevents long night CAPs (and no, NVG is not the answer for the early Tomcats).

35 minutes ago, NEW is my Callsign. said:

Just a correction here: There will be no -95GR for the USN. The IIRIAF version will be the only 95 block and will just be an Early -135 A with some features disabled, such as TCS and Datalink.

Thanks and let other users comment it.

Hi all, I would like to add F-14B(U) into the wish list section and the reference can be found at:

 

Please let me know any concern, thanks!!

I'd also like to stress that I'd love to see crew chief / startup functions like putting on the helmet, performing checks et cetera in the Tomcat. It's such a great feature of the Phantom.

I would like that too, but doesn't the Navy use mostly hand signals?
