DCS spotting tips

Hi, I thought I would start this thread to offer spotting tips in DCS. 1. At BVR, rely EW, SA page if available in your craft, AWACS calls, to get a fix on where to look for enemy aircraft. Direct your RWS in that direction to hopefully get a fix and prevent the enemy from getting within WVR. Hopefu...

Re: Dynamic missions

I will read up on these and get back to you. I think once we're good enough we could consider doing GAW on their server. But doing so, I think, is on another level. We would need to be a bit more disciplined and communicate better. The pilots on those server, as I understand it at least, are very go...

DCS spotting issues.

As you know, spotting aircraft, and ground targets for that matter, in DCS is extremely difficult. While perhaps closer to real life than any other sim we've played because the sim doesn't scale the object or employ some other artificial gimmick, the pendulum swings too far in the opposite direction...

Re: release or openbeta

So the real question is how far behind the beta is the official release? Personally I prefer the official release because it’s the most stable product and I don’t want two installs on my HD. But if everyone wants to do the beta, that’s fine.

Operation Minute Man Revisions

If you want to see something added, moved, deleted from, or have some other suggestion for OPMM please feel free to add it here! Thanks. To generate ideas, here is what I have so far: 1. All missions will have AI substitutes for when live pilots do not fly a given role. 2. All missions will mission ...

Re: I missed you MAN!!!!!

Hey DA!

We've been flying DCS and IL2. Right now some of us are doing a deep dive on the new Navy fighters in DCS. But, I will take a look at the link you posted and check out 3.5. My guess is that it's still a ways off. I mean the game isn't even in Beta yet, right?

First F18 Flight

So I finally got back into DCS and got into the F18. Managed a cold start, taxi, take-off....buzzed the tower despite the pattern being full...landed but I have to tweak my controls. Apparently the toe breaks on my rudder pedals aren't mapped right. Fire to right wing. Eject. Not a bad start. I have...

RAZBAM MIG19P

Razbam does it again. They make good stuff for DCS. I was very happy with their Mirage 2000. The Mig 19 looks good as well. These promo videos always make me want to fly.

DCS Persian Gulf

Hi, Next Wednesday, we're going to probably split the night between DCS and IL2. I'm updating DCS now and I'm probably going to buy Persian Gulf this weekend. I wish it were on sale, but I figure that this terrain is worth the money since I already have F18. Planning on flying the 18 next Wednesday ...

Hey DA! Yeah, not a lot of activity on the forums these days. Would like to see that change. But, we're still kicking around. Most of are flying flight sims still. But, I have SC and I'm just waiting until it becomes more of a polished game before I invest any real time in it. I'll let you know when...

Still flying on Wed. nights if you guys are still game. We also fly DCS, only haven't done so in a while. But may be getting back to it given all the upgrades they've made.

Hey Panzer, Jedi, and Hammer, Been a while since I've posted on the boards, but I don't have Panzer's and Jedi's emails.

Re: Greetings Star Citizens

Yeah I think the factor we're discussing is piloting style. I haven't figured out exactly what my style is yet and so earning rev to figure out which fighter play to my strengths and minimizes my weaknesses remains. I will definitely experiment before buying, but I've always been comfortable in the ...
