  1. For admin, do you mind to move my earlier post/ merge it here? https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=275176
  2. I can confirm the bug is present as well in Persian Gulf and Nevada. I should have actually used PG for the videos, bomb goes straight to the other side of the hill :D
  3. It works both creating a markpoint from the hud or tgp, and after that selecting that as steerpoint after changing the dts to hot
  4. That might be the issue, but if you try it, you just need to switch from dtc to HOT if you create a markpoint on the target, select it as steerpoint, and It works perfectly, even without the jtac giving you any accurate number. If the dts was not accurate the workaround i mentioned shouldn't work.. The other question is, IRL i know airplanes like the av8 feeds target elevation from the most precise source (tgp for example when you create a lock), shouldn't the A10 do the same?
  5. I didn't make any spi to avoid possible sensor interaction faking results, i just red the elevation, tgp remained in Atrack. All i had set was steerpoint as spi. I didn't make a video this time, all the results match the hypotesis. Releasing active pause didn't generate any change in simbology, all the drops were offset until target elevation is forced in instead of dts.
  6. Hi A10 yoda, all the test were filmed flying QNH. The behaviour you quote is correct, but the ALT SCE switch apparently is not implemented in the DCS model(It;s an old post but i din't see it in any changelog, if you have any info would be amaing:https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=82199 ). I made another video trying out your suggestion: 1st drop, inducing a qnd error setting a random value 2nd drop, setting the correct qnh 3rd drop, selecting DELTA from the ALT SCE switch 4th drop, selectin RAdio from the alt sce switch. All impact are on the same spot, showing all th
  7. Not a problem man, nothing taken personally! I love this sim and I believe everybody that uses it deserves a perfect experience. Please post your results, meanwhile let's wait for other feedbacks!
  8. I might have found something useful. Every time we input a different value than DTS on the HUD, we are basically changing the Target elevation fed to the LASTE for its calcoulation (as theorised). Also the value limit is comparable, -1000 to 20560 in the game compared to -990 to 16380 in the A10A document, probably cause by different suite version). On the real airplane, there is a LASTE subpage in which you can select various tgt elev for different steerpoints, but that is not simulated in DCS so was kinda tricky to prove on documents. The question of the why the ccip is not spot on on DTS, b
  9. Sorry i made a video but is before i red the comment. Even with a steeper angle still is inaccurate on dts until forcing the target elevation on the steerpoint.
  10. I will try and post the results. There is a thing i still cannot explain, and it's easily replicated. Fly at 3000 ft towards a waypoint, select mk82 profile and you will see the dotted pbil. ( also works with gun pipper). Now manually select an altitude from the ufc and set it higher than your current altitude, the ccip solution will disappear/get crossed. If ccip relies only on its own sensors, that shouldn't happen.
  11. fixed on today's update: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/news/changelog/openbeta/
  12. I made this track quickly. Wpt alt 6500 ft, tgt elevation 1650. First pass: only ccip mk82 selected -> long Second pass: tgp spi (confirmet on hud), DTS -> long Third Pass: Markpoint created out of spi and selected as steerpoint/DTS-> long Fourth pass: same as 3rd, but forcing steerpoint elevation of 1650 -> perfect hit The three long impact are really close to each other with similar time of fall. Notes: I left TGP as spi generator for the last pass to show how the current steerpoint altitude influences the drops regardless of SPI. The altitude that was set on the
  13. According to what you said, how do you explain the fact it is influecenced by current steerpoint altitude if it's supposed to be completely independent? CCIP needs to know a target elavtion somehow, then uses as you said altitude/spd etch to calculate the pbil and impact point. Elevation data can be provided through different means, one should be SPI. Maybe you didn't notice as when you in the sim you always have a steerpoint select regardless, and if the alitude ot that point is close to the target one, you have a working system.

  14. Hi guys, I noticed a weird behaviour with the ccip delivery. Regardless of what is your spi generator, when you create one, it looks like LASTE keeps the current steerpoint elevation for the delivery cue. Easy to replicate: fly at 3000ft to a wpt/mkp/stp that has an altitude higher than 3000ft, get a spi and still no drop cue as the computer will still be thinking that your target is above you. From the manual at page 400: A SPI is a 3D point in space that the systems use as a shared reference location to cue weapons, aim sensors and send over the datalink. This is a key
