  1. I've been literally non-stop since work boomed in April last year, my contract price has doubled from demand.. I had 2 weeks off at the start of lockdown, then it was work more than normal since. Covid's been bad, but not in the uk tech industry. Me and the missus bought a second house, and were looking at a third. Covid was a good excuse at the start, but companies put infrastructure into their business to accommodate the struggle. By the end of June everyone had that sorted. Everybody here knows we're going to eventually get the yak finished. We're not under any illusions about that, they're frustrated because it's not being worked on (from the changelogs), and when they ask -it's the same excuse 'we'll get around to it when we're not busy'.. And I'm not sure that's making people feel any better. A year ago, it was promised on Reddit that this module would leave EA (along with the AP), and yet still not even an update on the yak. It's upsetting, and like you said- we have to enjoy other modules, but this is the cost of Early Access. If ED genuinely don't want the complaints, they have to either re-evaluate their stance. And either finish modules before they reach the shop front or stop selling them in EA. As a business, they can't make promises to the customer in return for our early investment, then get upset with us when we aren't happy that they haven't delivered. This isn't a personal vendetta, it's honest feedback. People will always buy the modules, that's not going to change. If they wish to carry on going the way they are they have to take the complaints when they don't deliver. 'The team will get around to it' is not a valid excuse to put a module in the shop. Hence why the yak thread is becoming the way it is. And it's a little sad that people aren't been given estimates even if the expected delivery time is 5 years from now I mean I can't even get a response, on the actual RRP price of the module. Meanwhile the shop just says EA $39.99, no discount, and yet it's been pointed out that the module is discounted. That's despite previous posts where it's been pointed out that EA status modules won't be put into sales for two years. Can you blame people for their complaints when the standards are as they are? On a positive, I also enjoy the yak, and hope the 'finish it' crowd get some resolution soon.
  2. This is very wishful thinking.. If they did this, I could optimise and patch DCS myself..
  3. Have you tried pushing the clock (historic mode) at the bottom of the mission editor?
  4. Yeah, I don't care Thanks though
  5. I mean I cant agree with this enough. Even having Assets for Nevada that werent controllable would be a great start. Ambulances, Tv trucks, Police, News Choppers (Kiowa without the radar and a normal skin) would add a significant boost to the orientation of mission in Nevada alone, and then with an extra skin for them, they could be used in Syria too. Id like to see 3d Models placed higher in the priority list, and then added to the core game. What models would you like to see added sooner rather than later?
  6. Insurgent would be great for both the Hind and the new Apache. Turkish is definitely a welcome for Syria too.
  7. He is 100% right, you need to stop talking to me. We cant agree on anything and thats never going to change. You insultingly offered me 2 assets packs, to me- in offer i build a campaign for the people WITH the asset pack. Firstly, what about the 30+ other people in my discord i fly with that dont buy the pack, because of the awful reviews? Am i to pick who can and cant fly on my new campaign? Secondly, 2 Asset packs are £80- Thats just over one hours work in my profession. Everyone has access to the ME, I dare you to make one decent mission in the ME. A good mission can take upwards of 2 weeks to get right and test and most times i build them with someone else. Would you do two weeks work for £80 when a campaign has 6-12 missions? Near all the campaign designers do it part time, as it doesnt cover living expenses. The cost of requirement is a mute point to you, are you to suggest, I buy a campaign and then swap the required map/asset/module just so i can use it on caucasus? Do you know how much work that would entail? No, because you havent built your own campaign yet. The cost of requirement is not amute point to the majority, which is why we have such a huge devide over this subject. Now lets just say were friends, move on, and never quote each other ever again.. On the Money.. Really great points.. Number 1 is a given... I cant help but wish we'd get some civilian assets. Or feedback towards the assets we can expect to recieve.
  8. Thanks for the support, All im doing is responding to a user. Youd never hear about it from me, if said user wouldnt start the conversation with me. Ive asked, Ive pleaded and yet here we are..
  9. Does anyone know the final price on the Yak? Apparently its already been discounted but their is no RRP on the shop.
  10. No, You seem to think its overpriced.. I buy modules on EA release day. Youre openly waiting for sales before buying them.. If you honestly dont believe DCS World is overpriced.. Buy the Yak now, stop waiting for sales.. The next paragraph can be answered by the search engine. We all know how much work goes into a module, They tease us, then it goes to EA, then it goes to module complete. This discussion ran its course weeks ago, buy you keep quoting me so here we are in the midst of yet another pointless discussion with regard personal opinion. Truth be told- Here you are yet again, not reading the question and side tracking the question by pushing the conversation Off Topic. Heres a forum mod and his opinion on the openly suffering MP game (granted it was before the release of the GS server- lets see how that does). The question was how much to play the campaign YOU recommended to me, vs how much to play the campaign I recommended to you. All you had to do is add up the module, and the requirements.. You point refuse to answer. This is the poor argument i talk of. Despite the majority views towards the subject of any assets. You just cant help but argue and swerve the question.. So i dont think you and i will ever reach a point where you'll be empathetic to the general opinion of assets. I dont care if the relationship is goods between ED and third parties, I care if the product i buy isnt performing how it should be. And thats the bottom line. As a conclusion, youre suggesting i make a Campaign (which i know im good at) with the Asset Pack - For ED to sell on its website? That i have to maintain for the rest of my life after ED's Open Beta patch breaks it? That is two things i dont ever want to do. My campaigns are free to everyone. Not just those who buy the Asset pack. Not only that, the AP isnt optimised and runs like kack on my friends machine.. So no.. Well thats offensive, you feel a campaign is worth £80 of my time? Well now i know your trolling.. Hey man, did you manage to complete Schnellkampfgeschwader 10 I. Gruppe?
  11. Seriously just go through his videos and stop having a defeatist attitude.. Practice x I believe in you..
  12. Ive watched your videos man, Youve got some very serious skills.. Keep up the good work.. Check this landing out..
  13. So you asked this before, and @grafspee uploaded you a video to show you its possible..
  14. If you bounce, youve come in too hard, or with a speed thats too high.. A non bounce landing is easy with thorough practice.
  15. Just to ask' what's the discount? What will it normally be sold at? If you look at the other EA modules you can see the RRP, then it's discount. You've also previously discounted the yak from this price' which is why we believed it was the RRP. To which I think is the whole argument and the double standard towards this module.
  16. Personally, I know how hard it is to trawl through these forums and do your job. I get that dealing with peoples complaints is very hard work, it is not a job that I could do. I respect your position, and I'm not trying to go about 'being negative' genuinely- I'm just sharing an opinion. But if I'm being unbiased, we're not talking about the odd module. We're talking about alot of modules. And a recurring theme. Is there nothing you can do for the players that frequent the forums? Can't you just send an email to whom it matters, and get us information for some of the modules? Even if it takes us 3 years to see some modules finished, while me might complain- we will know.
  17. How about an update to regards where we are with bugs and modules? While I'm sure you believe me to 'be negative', we've had no updates from you or ED to point out where we are in relationship to the numbering bugs that are being racked up. I'd love to push things more positively, but I can't help but feel the communication with the users is none existant Rather than just talking to us and being honest (yes I know that some will complain that things aren't happening quick enough- me included) all you do is lock posts, which means the complaints then rack up. I mean all you keep telling us is that 'youll get around to it' I've been hearing that since the start of lockdown and you've not really give us any insight. What would be the possibility of recieving compensation (miles points will do) for the modules that haven't received the maintenance they need or aren't finished considering that they were promised?
  18. In my experience its one or two certain assets, much like new modules, alot of them havent yet been optimised. When me and a friend fly using the Asset Pack, (him on an RTX 2070 and me on a 2080ti) we have a bad time when using certain assets.. Swapping the asset pack for non A/Pack stuff seems to give a much better performance for both of us.. In most experiences, you can add quite a considerable amount of non asset pack assets, and you barely see a dip in performance. Then after you pick out the assets causing the issue, youre left with the effects.. But the minute you start adding certain assets and effects, you see a visible and considerable hit. When we deleted the asset pack as a whole in a short campaign we made, we found we could add a huge amount more assets- Flak, Havocs, Enemy fighters and the cost to performance was much lower. Then after highlighting the issues, youre left with managing effects, which again- need much more and better optimisation. Alot more time needs spending on the Warbirds game. A few updates ago we got it down to one or two assets that werent optimised. With the last few updates, we've seen really poor performance with assets across the whole of warbirds. Im scratching at walls waiting for improvements.
  19. Pleasing the crowd has its advantages you see..
  20. Its time to move on, there will always be a bigger and better plane to work on. DCS Yak is dead, and we must salute the module and allow it to be lost.. Even if it gets updated/finished, can you imagine the speed at which bugs will be fixed, considering how long its been ignored.. Were still waiting on the Dora's engine to be fixed 3 years on, and that module is popular..
