  1. I have seen F-16 pilots comment that they fold the thing away IRL, because it just gets in the way, so Yes from me. As for the seat cover. No the sheepskin seat has to stay. It's comfy.
  2. I guess you mean stabilator droop? I never even noticed it being missing before., but you are not wrong. I guess (but haven't checked) that a good many, if not all, DCS aircraft are missing such things as control surfaces drooping. I did notice that an empty DCS Spit had elevator dropping under gravity, while one with a pilot did not, as he was holding it in a neutral position. So all good there.
  3. Sure, you can use anything as a Shift state switch if you want to give up a joystick button (or a keystroke), and DCS is easier than BMS to do this, but keeping it "real", the usual suspects on a TM Warthog stick (for example) both have functions IRL, so you have to compromise. If you also have a throttle, there is usually a spare button to use a shift or to reeplace the function lost by using the pinky switch or paddle on your stick. If you don't have a throttle, get one. In BMS, I use the Target Script editor to add a Long and Short hold function to the paddle switch so it can fu
  4. Why? Surely it is better if every aircraft had the same L/R/C MFD display export name as they do now? If all are unique, then you need to create a separate entry for each. aircraft in your monitorsetup config. Or are you concerned about something other than exporting them to a screen?

    And I personally would like to see this one finished before they even think about another version. Personally, I only have experience with Dutch & Belgian F-16As, and would love to see those, but I guess it will need a third party or a modder to do this any time soon.. While they are at it, can they create a Tornado GR1, Jaguar, Buccaneer, Hunter, Wessex, Puma, Chinook, Bulldog and Chipmunk, and other types I have worked on.
  6. All true. Stanley airport is much changed, with the metal strip extensions gone, and runways now shortened again. Most of the bomb craters still exist if you look at recent imagery, and the terminal doesn't looks much different from what I remember. Port Stanley City itself seems to be much expanded now. There are roads all over the place that did not exist in '82. The Harrier strip at Port San Carlos (post landings) is gone, and the "village green" of the sheep farm no longer looks like something out of M.A.S.H. I'm not sure that Goose green had a lot going on in 82 structure-wise that is,
  7. Happy New Year!


    Have a Much better 2021 people.

  8. Interesting. I do 2d and 3d work on this PC, so I usually leave my Main monitor "un-enhanced" - might be worth a looksee.
  9. I'm only trying it out as part of the free trial, and not learning anything in-depth, but honestly, I think it has some of the clearest set of instruments in DCS. I especially like the effort that has gone into making the luminous paint look... well... luminous. Are you spreading the view across multiple screens, or using a very wide screen? That can affect the default FOV / zoom quite badly if you don't account for it. on a single 2560x1440 monitor at default zoom the windscreen arch fills the screen, and the wing guns are not visible. Any wider than that, and yes, the instrumen
  10. Well they sort of do, since all your user configs are external to the Install, and a simple copy/paste can deal with that, and most of the rest has to be dealt with using OvGME or similar, but no matter what, you always have to mess around with control settings. Its as if the system was designed to use a single 4 button stick and nothing else. Having every controller be assigned pitch, roll and yaw as well as POV quickviews every time is getting tedious in the extreme.
  11. Enclosed cockpits are dark - especially when everything is painted Black. All the others are ridiculously bright, especially the FW, Me and Spit. As mentioned above, they could do with using the same settings as this one.
  12. PST is Pacific Standard Time, not Eastern European Time . Tha is only 2 to 3 Hours ahead of GMT not 9 hours.
  13. You should be fine with those, they are made for each other, but it is fair to mention that you can get by with only the F-18, since a functional carrier (not as detailed & no deck crew though) is built in to the free version, and you have the large expanse of the Black Sea to place it on. The AV-8 is also a good fit for Naval operations, perhaps not on the Supercarrier itself of course. FC3 is fairly cheap too and will give you a number of aircraft including the Russian/Chinese Carrier borne aircraft to a similar standard as the SU25-T supplied in the free version.
  14. It must have just cleared after I last tried it then. I just checked, & it is working. I can now search using Edge too.
  15. I have been checking all afternoon, and so far nothing has show up as a free trial, although I do see the sale items on the E-Shop. Maybe they meant the 23rd?
