  1. Don't really pay attention to how the AI acts. I always see the human as having the advantage and like to push them by adding different problems sometimes by just adding an extra plane. The Human has the ability to respond with better tactics or new tactics altogether. So, the ideal is not that the human always wins just barely but that you sometimes win and sometimes get overwhelmed. And have to improve. Always have to know that there is a range of skill that means some very skilled players will handle this easily - so no perfect mission
  2. Just loaded the Patch 2.1.0.6002 Update 1 The shimmering oily look is gone The dials are darkened and crystal clear
  3. Tried the 2.1.0.6002 Patch No problems Never mind :dunno:
  4. :lookaround: Time to buy another DCS Module :lol: and wait on more MiG-21bis content :drink: :weight_lift_2: I went through various droughts of DCS content by learning to do missions with randomization Now I do more mission editing (and testing :pilotfly: :joystick: ) than just flying I had done only A2G stuff but was happy enough with the M-2000C to tackle learning Air-to-air and creating missions for A2A. Good plane.
  5. Tried it again - seems to be working again I did remap some of the frequencies but will test again later on the latest 2.1.0.6xxx patch
  6. MBot has a dynamic campaign for MiG-21bis - MiG-21Bis Dynamic Campaign: Guardians of the Caucasus https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=136618 User files show 2 campaigns https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/?PAGEN_1=2&arrFilter_pf%5Bfiletype%5D=3&arrFilter_pf%5Bgameversion%5D=&arrFilter_pf%5Bfilelang%5D=&arrFilter_pf%5Baircraft%5D=154&arrFilter_DATE_CREATE_1_DAYS_TO_BACK=&CREATED_BY=&sort_by_order=TIMESTAMP_X_DESC&set_filter=Filter Filter for single mission gives some pages of content https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/?PAGEN_1=2&arrFilter_pf%5Bfiletype%5D=1&arrFilter_pf%5Bgameversion%5D=&arrFilter_pf%5Bfilelang%5D=&arrFilter_pf%5Baircraft%5D=154&arrFilter_DATE_CREATE_1_DAYS_TO_BACK=&CREATED_BY=&sort_by_order=TIMESTAMP_X_DESC&set_filter=Filter More simpler - I created a mission that has 8 missions in it with 3 or 4 enemy types per mission (28 missions in total) MiG-21bis Kutaisi Runway Scramble - MULTI-MISSION https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/2647444/ This is NOT multi-player but single-player where you start at the Kutaisi runway and wait for 1 of 8 air-to-air mission types Your opponents will be varied Russian & Iranian fighters (F5E, MiG-21, MiG-23) The AWACS Radio will give you the air-to-air mission type as you wait on the runway. Restart the mission to get a very probably different task and opponent - Random enough to keep you busy It has really honed my A2A skills in the MiG-21bis - would have given up the MiG-21bis without it Started creating a campaign now but no estimated time - I prefer to make mission packs I've already made a few A2G missions for it (in the User files) with some randomization of targets.
  7. Currently using 2.1.0.5677 NTTR Tried to get responses out of Home Airbase ATC and AWACS with MiG-21bis in a mission I was building Using Easy-comms & Frequencies were black and did not change Set up an test mission (attached) that tested AWACS and ATC The F-KEY responses were white but there was no responses from AWACS(E2) or Home Base (GroomLake) Swapped in the Su-25T and got the correct responses Went back to my mission (MiG-21bis Escort OP Hunters) & swapped in a MiG29S and got the correct responses Swapped the MiG-21bis back in & the same non-response Test AWAC Su25T .miz MiG-21bis Escort OP Hunters.miz
  8. Updated to DSC World 2.1 and decided to create a mission to check out Nevada and possibly the PBR Lighting Never saw anything like this lighting in DCS World 1.5 Cockpit has even more personality now
  9. With a lot of testing and a lot of improving my own MiG-21 skills, I finally have finished that Multi-Mission mission Mig-21bis Kutaisi Scramble It is NOT multi-player but single-player where you start at the Kutaisi runway and wait for 1 of 8 air-to-air mission types with varied Russian & Iranian enemy fighters (F5E, MiG-21, MiG-23) as your opponent. The Radio will give you the air-to-air mission type as you wait on the runway. Restart the mission to get a very probably different task and opponent I am not much of a air-to-air fighter. All my other missions have been ground-pounding in the A-10A, Ka-50, and Su-25T. The few missions I had created for the MiG-21bis had been air-to-ground as well. I had bought the MiG-21bis mainly for its lovely cockpit and not much else. But then I picked up the M-2000C; not as beautiful as the MiG-21 but had lots of good avionics and warning systems and pretty good missiles so that I enjoyed A2A for the first time and then decided to created that original M-2000C Multi-mission. Lots of opponents and different types of missions - no one & done for me. The M-2000C was more capable than the MiG-21 so I had to do a lot more testing and tweaking with the MiG-21bis to get enough action and variety. I reviewed the missiles and jamming devices and got a good variety I learned a lot. Now onto other things for the MiG-21bis
  10. Good work on this - never thought to use the beacons except for landing I tend to work on CAS missions as well and use the kneeboard a fair-bit. But if you have a list of Waypoints, you can use a screen of the briefing to list the Waypoints and directions - very much like a mission card A simplified Mission Card might be done such as: Kobuleti depart Runway 70 turn to 260 (WP1 at Waters Edge) Turn 180 to WP2 at River Intersection Turn 177 to WP3 at Enemy camp And you might want to take a look at older Mission Cards - have them shown in the briefing as well And I also use supporting spotter with flares - using F10 Options and Flare triggers But I definitely need more recon photographs and model pictures for identified targets There are also discussions on this with https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=139370 And samples of A-10 Mission Cards https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=61044 Thanks for this
  11. BETA Mission to test I have created a Beta for testing the opponents that the MiG-21bis might face But when I started to fly, I realized I was not good enough with the MiG-21bis My main Air-to-air has been the M-2000C which has lots of situational Awareness aids So, I will need help in testing This AWACS Protection mission is a random choice of the following flights: Opponents are: 2 x Mig-29A (R-73) 3 x F-5E (AIM-9P) 4 x Mig23 (R-60M + R24R) 4 x MiG-21bis (R-3R) You are a 4 Flight of MiG-21bis launching from the runway Let me know of any questions you have or suggestions you can make EDIT: Removed Beta
  12. Did a little Wiki research - Iran (Islamic Republic of Iran) had some F5-E from the U.S. Probably this - would like more opponents
  13. I am working on a MiG21bis version of my Kutaisi MULTI-Mission A2A Scramble - that depicted an early Georgian departure from the Soviet Union with Western Allied support In the mid-80's, your French M-2000C lined up on the Georgian runway and you got 1 of 7 random missions against 3 or 4 different random enemy airframes (Mig-21, MiG-23, MiG-29A, and su-27 - with no extended range missiles) M-2000-C Version https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/2463568/ RUNWAY take-off I'd prefer not to massively rework this - I'll just make the 4-flight of MiG21s Georgian scrambling I would drop the Su-27 opponent But what would you want to see as an opponent? Any other Warsaw Pact or Soviet allied plane (Abkhazia, Belarus, China, Insurgents, Iran, Kazakhstan, North Korea, Russia, Serbia, South Ossetia, Syria)? Or maybe a fictional capture/re-purposed Western Aircraft - maybe earlier the Soviet got hold of a Western air-frame and manufactured a Soviet version prototype MiG-21bis Mission Finished - see full message below Mig-21bis Kutaisi Scramble
  14. Finally uploaded the Multi-Mission Mission M-2000C Kutaisi Runway Scramble - A2A MULTI-MISSION RUNWAY START https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/2463568/ This is NOT multi-player but single-player where you start at the Kutaisi runway and wait for 1 of 7 air-to-air mission types - as ordered on the radio Your opponents will be varied Russian fighters Restart the mission to get a very probably different task and opponent Not totally random but enough to keep you busy
  15. Working on an multi-mission A2A mission for the M-2000C - You start hot on the runway with a 4-flight and are randomly given 1 of 8 mission types - Most missions you face an enemy flight (2-4 fighters) randomly chosen among Su-27/Mig-21/Mig-29A/MiG-23 with no extended range missiles - there's also an CAP 2 flight that's aggressive off their CAP route I have a random option where 2 of your flight are disabled (#3 and #4) leaving #1 and #2 Is it OK to be unfair with 2 Mirage vs 2-4 fighters? (but since you can try again, might be worth a shot) How often should that reduced flight show up randomly? [EDIT: Added actual mission] Finally uploaded the Multi-Mission Mission M-2000C Kutaisi Runway Scramble - A2A MULTI-MISSION RUNWAY START https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/2463568/ This is NOT multi-player but single-player where you start at the Kutaisi runway and wait for 1 of 7 air-to-air mission types - as ordered on the radio Your opponents will be varied Russian fighters Restart the mission to get a very probably different task and opponent Not totally random but enough to keep you busy
  16. Missions Attached are 2 missions KnifeFight_SP - single player F15C vs. F15C. Good place to start. KnifeFight_MP - if you have a on-line friend, you can try this. You start the mission with the fighters 9km apart - head-on You are likely going to have to modify the mission; when I play-tested it, the enemy fighter had me locked up within 2 seconds and fired. You wanted them that close and that's what happens Open the Mission Editor to: Make the flights closer or further (there's a distance tool) Change their weapons (maybe even make the fighters to have gunz only) Change the enemy Fighter from 15C to another type Good Luck :pilotfly: KnifeFight_MP+SP Missions.zip
  17. I have a multi-mission single-player mission where the Pilot is waiting on the runway for whatever mission is randomly assigned. It is set in 1989 with early - too early - Georgian independence and France sending the M-2000C. I have chosen to pit the Mirage 2000C against mainly Mig-23, Mig-29A attackers There is an occasional Su-27 For reasonable difficulty and parity, do I need to need to nerf the missiles? Are there other Soviet opponents - like the MiG-21?
  18. Is there a functioning Specularity texture for the Ka-50? See it for the P-51 but don't know if the Ka-50 is fitted for that
  19. If you see the Serial #, you should have the DLC - From the Main Menu, select CAMPAIGN on the right, - Under the Module list on the Left, Choose the A-10C and wait some moments while it loads the list of campaigns in the centre (under Campaigns) - Highlight the Campaign and hit the button on the bottom that says NEXT Keys & Joystick button - there are more than a few. Keep paper and pen handy and start running the TRAINING missions - From the Main Menu, select TRAINING on the right side - Under the Module list on the Left, Choose the A-10C and a list of the Training Missions is listed - start from there Also when I am getting back to the A-10C, I repeatedly play the River Raider single Mission - it has a mid-air start (no start-ups) - I still have to do a few training missions on the following: TGP Targeting Pod AN/AAQ-28 LITENING=28 Mavericks Precision-Guided Munitions It gets me going. For all missions, I use the automatic Start-up - RIGHT_WINDOWS Button + HOME Button starts it up - if you're still learning the HOTAS and other commands, in-mission you can hit the ESC button and scroll through the key and joystick buttons There's nothing automatic but it's fun to master.
  20. For the HUD only Below the Left MFCD is the Day/Night toggle to change the HUD colours from green to orange. One tool to help.
  21. Had a slight hiccup. Unzipped it to but did not see it in my Campaign User TAB I had loaded it into Campaign Builder, put some verbiage in the Campaign Description Over the Hump (MiG-21bis version) Dirty Rotten Flieger's Mig-21bis adaptation of MiG-29 campaign. and did a File Save AS - it showed up right away
  22. I've just started learning the MiG-21bis so my air-to-air is weak but competent with air-to-ground Attached is a bombing mission in the Turkish mountains against some Georgian rebels at their River Camp. It's my first MiG-21bis mission but I've made many missions. There are 2 versions - AIR Start and RAMP Start Please let me know: If too hard, too many targets or if not the correct load out or any other problems Merry Christmas - hope you enjoy it MiG21_ColdBorders_RiverCamp.zip
  23. OK, for sim flyers it sounds like a good idea to do it sooner.
  24. What exactly were you expecting at that point?
  25. Updated Version 1.11 - improved SEAD Tasking After the SEAD Group wipes out the theatre-wide SAMs, they spent time wiping out targets the Player has to take care of. ROE - WEAPON HOLD was tested and seemed to function But decided to play it safe and just destroy the SEAD group. Did make a message to appear as if they were RTB.
