    If there is one thing about which I am not a fan of DCS, it would be that they always seem to pick the latest variant which may pack just a bit more extra kit, but which have nearly no historical relevance.  They definitely cater to the online multiplayer arcade gamer more than the serious historical simmer 😞

    That's quite true, but certainly ED pic those latest versions because that's what people ask for and if they pic any "older" version than that there's always going to chime in people furiously demanding asking politely why this or that feature wasn't included because once somebody used it on its plane and obviously it's absolutely necessary since it's the reason they miserably die in ever sortie why historical aces they match with won every battle in that aircraft… 🤦‍♂️

    Not only with this MiG-19S thing, but with many other aircraft and scenarios in DCS I would like to have historical features and limits for a certain date, be it 60's, 70's, 80's or whatever, but apparently most people isn't happy with that and always want the latest and more than the latest if they were allowed to in order to have the slightest advantage.

  2. I don't know if they changed their minds, but it was coming together with PF as a whole pack back when it started. Same for AV-8B and B+ coming together as a whole pack. Something alike the Tomcat with several versions on one module.

    AFAIK I got the MiG-19 pretty cheap using the some of the last ED bonus, I wouldn't mind paying for an S model with all the bells and whistles please if I have to pay again for it of course, but their word was it was a pack coming with two versions.

  3. That's correct if you come in 4º glide slope as per PRMG. Any other situation, and I know what happens with the average virtual aviator 🙄, you shouldn't lower full flaps that far away (meaning 10 or 10+ Km away) as the OP said. 4-5 is nice, and pretty close to the runway as I said, it's perfect indeed, but only if you came all the way also in almost perfect approach, but in the virtual World that's not always the case 😅, hence I can't recommend anything else than what I said, despite the manual, to the bulk of the pilots trying to learn the beast. Real numbers are only for super geeky virtual pilots matching every of those numbers, the rest needs a compromise 😁.


  4. Pffff, pero quieres decir conseguir que eso te lo haga la IA?? Eso es ciencia ficción amigo… 😅 Les mandas RTB y suerte si te hacen caso.

    Pensé que querías saber de cara a misiones online con más gente, que tampoco tienen por qué cumplir pero al menos se intenta 🤣.


  5. Pues sencillo. Si van juntos, que no tienen porqué después de una misión, especialmente en el mundo virtual 😅 , primero, primerísimo en la vida real, quien tenga daños declarados aunque en el simulador los daños si no son fatales desde el primer momento suelen en muchas ocasiones poder aguanterse más o menos por tiempo indefinido, pero aún así debería de ser el primero en aterrizar. En los warbirds ya no pasa porque los aviones dañados se pueden morir por el camino, así que ahí tiene todo el sentido que quien tenga daños entre el primero, si es que llega a base 🤣, quizá en el resto también pase cuando pongan el modelo de daños nuevo.

    Después de eso, siempre quien tiene menos combustible. Después de una misión todos suelen ir más o menos secos pero siempre hay alguien aún más seco que los demás si la misión ha sido relativamente larga, pues ese o esos obviamente van antes y para eso se hacen los fuel check y demás.

    Si no hay nada que lo impida y/o todo el mundo está sobrado de combustible, o sea no hay prisa ni urgencia por ninguna razón, pues formación bonita con inicial y rotura y la parafernalia de siempre.



  6. I think you mean Km/H, not KIAS. I would never, ever, lower full flaps so far away as 10Km away. It's obvious the aircraft doesn't hold itself with that kind of drag while on final. I don't know why anybody would do that. All training missions and manual say you don't lower full flaps until final, that means really close to the runway. Depending on the situation sometimes I wouldn't lower full flaps until really short final. Also, if you aren't coming with the right AoA and glide path you're probably incoming too low and in the reverse command region, which is just fatal in this aircraft. If you don't know what that is look for it and read about it, it's the region (in a power available/drag chart) in which you need more power to fly slower… that may pop up something in your head.



  7. No one. A desktop PC is more than advisable. Just look at the proposed settings and, what do you see? More precisely, what you do not see? That is what you would need to use DCS or any other highly demanding game and you won't get it in any laptop no matter the names they put on it.


    Sorry for the unintentionally cryptic talking, you need a graphics card, the highest one you can get, not an easy task these days, and even the highest laptops saying they boast a 3080 graphics card just lie, those aren't even close to desktop counterparts, you pay for them as they were real equivalents though. Any high end laptop would do it if, but only if, you really need a laptop no matter what because you move it around, you work with it off home, whatever. If that's not the case, don't buy any allegedly gaming laptop just to sit on top of your desk. For lesser games that might work at least, but DCS really asks for real graphic power right now and for the time being.


    If the latter is to be, you really need it to be mobile, both would work, just neither mentions a graphics card and that's not good.

  8. Esa Wiki era un trabajo comunitario externo a ED, si la gente que la hacía se cansó de hacerla/pagar hostings poco se puede hacer más que darles las gracias por el tiempo y el esfuerzo que le dedicaron en su día.

    A pesar de tu equivocada impresión, y a pesar de que el inglés es la lengua franca de la aeronáutica internacional occidental y eso no se puede cambiar, hay muchísimas cosas en español, solo hay que buscar. Youtube está lleno de tutoriales de toda clase, y sinceramente me parece hasta insultante que digas que eso no existe porque muchos de esos que crean contenido en español con su tiempo y esfuerzo, gratis para toda la comunidad, son compañeros y amigos míos y te aseguro que existen y pierden su tiempo para que gente como tú que no se molesta en aprender inglés tengan contenido con el que aprender en español. Así que por favor, menos lobos y más buscar en google porque hay absolutamente DE TODO y en abierto.



  9. El soporte de ED funciona perfectamente, no sé si lo has usado alguna vez, pero contestan siempre en el mismo día o al siguiente a pesar de la diferencia horaria. Si no te manejas en inglés el problema es del usuario, no de ellos.



  10. Parking spots might be a different thing, I don't say they can't be bugged with regards to aircraft sizes and all, but you here were asking and complaining about the base itself and its current configuration, remember. It's not gonna happen anytime soon they can get updated data about the current operational status of that specific base. We're lucky they modelled it in the first place without cops outside their door.

    I don't know…

    Yep, you should have stopped writing precisely there. It's hard for everyone since, as commented in this very same topic you didn't read beforehand, the base is in constant change since it's a Russian federation permanent base now. No factual data whatsoever more than a few hints here and there. No, it's not only one runway, the 17R is being made longer and wider for larger aircraft, but last (and outdated) info from international airport right there, which apparently nobody knows if is still running, says actual operational runway is 17R. It's hard for everybody to find info about that dark spot in Syria, so more than understandable Ugra can't have it either. It would be pointless to "update" the base to a current status nobody knows, and the works on runway 17R aren't probably finished yet. The base is fine as it is now, last known info about it and that's all.

    I follow their progress through their site since a few months as they are very discrete on this project, I don't remember to read anything significant about it in this forum! Yes day one purchase for such a badass plane!

    There's a thread in Chit chat section, plenty of talking since it was first announced.

    On top of this you have multiple Sea Furys.

    AFAIK all of them running on R2800 engines, though I believe there's a project somewhere to rebuilt a Centaurus engine for one of them.


    I would love to see them in DCS, Typhoon, Tempest, Sea Fury, and everything, but I'm not sure if that's even feasible for some of them.

  14. I cannot find the "other music" thread, so here it is anyway. This is the piece of music which, arranged, is background to the latest Halloween sales video. Nice pic BTW,
