  1. Don't have any purty screencaps but man the game looks and runs incredible. I am running an "old" GTX 1070 with 16g of DDR4 and an i5 @4.8GHZ and the game just runs so smooth. Don't have everything maxed of course but the stuff that matters is high or better and I run from 45-55 FPS at 1440p with a custom header tracker and its silky. Great stuff!
  2. Have you watched this: You definitely do not want to use ATC at anytime in the landing pattern. Practice flying "on-speed", this is a balancing act that specifically requires manual and continuous throttle adjustments particularly in turns and descending in the groove. No shame in extending the downwind leg to fine tune your line up to the deck. I have probably done this over 1500 times and still don't get it perfect every pass. From that discussion thread linked above you might get the impression of the need to gun the throttle "at the ramp". I recommend flying the "ball" to th
  3. If you are getting "signal charlie" and "roger ball" you should be good to go. I have a mission that starts me about 6nm aft of the boat @800ft. I hit active pause and set up the cockpit, dial in TACAN and ILS, drop hook, etc. Then I contact the boat and then immediately hit "see you at 10" then unpause and when 3nm from boat I get "signal charlie". At this point break into pattern, I get LSO calls and grade every time.
  4. VAICOM? Voice commands? Head-tracking, VR heasets, headphones and mic, HOTAS. Can just get a USB jack into my cerebral cortex?
  5. Title was supposed to be Map "hornet ball", anyway.. Well I am probably late to the party but if you haven't already, do yourself a favor and map the Hornet Ball command to your HOTAS somewhere. I was using the radio menu in the groove, not conducive to OK 3 wires. If this was discussed elsewhere I missed it, please delete wasted post. I hate waste.

  7. Not entirely sure what your experience level, personally I would recommend the Hornet. It is more complete and refined at this point and has a truly superb flight model that I don't think will change as much as the viper will at this point. The Hornet is much more forgiving with mistakes at the landing threshold than the viper.
  8. Just follow this and you will be fine, you just need to know the install directory.
  9. Agreed, great video. Excited for this. Long time coming.
  10. Noticed the changes immediately and I must say things will be easier after some retraining.
  11. Makes sense that the FCS could calculate the exact trim position reducing pilot workload at a critical time.
  12. Have you used the control input display to actually see the trim position after holding for 25 seconds with full flaps and gear?
  13. Edit - Title should read PC-DVD. I have BS 2 module but I still have the old PC-DVD version of DCS- Black Shark. Can I still run that version stand-alone? Just wondering if I have any reason to keep the CD. Might be fun to look back at the old Caucus map.
  14. Did not know this. Is it affected under visibility range or water detail? edit: Well after a closer look and fooling with settings ( the only setting I could increase was AA and Vis range which had no effect ) I noticed that the ships wake is at 1 nm, so can't really complain. Could it be longer in certain circumstances, sure but that would be a bit silly to complain about.
