  1. @Hardcard, loving the Hotshots gif profile pic... Clearly a person with great taste.
  2. Oh, Stop being so dramatic. ED have a finite amount of development capacity, and they are pushing to get the Hornet finished. It was after all released over a year before the F-16 so It only makes sense that it gets finished first. Patience, our time will come.
  3. If you know how to run the mission editor, try setting up a simple mission to test it. Training missions can be weird for some reason. Specailly if they were made before a certain feature was implimented. You may have found a mission bug. If you don't know how to work the ME... Good time to learn You can also try opening that training mission in the ME and resaving it elsewhere and trying it, that might also fix it.
  4. Huh? Yes you can. According to ED this is correct for the USAF/ANG Blk50 but I don't know why it wouldnt have that functionality. I'm not disagreeing with you btw, the Radar is def not finished...
  5. Awesome. Thanks if you need any more tracks recording then let me know and I can.
  6. Psst.. Its already got TWS, or are you talking about something specific?
  7. Hi BN, Hot start on the ground is not bresighted. You can see it clearly in my track that its not boresighted when I lock up the helicopter with the TGP for the first time. I can record a cold start track as well, but to me this is superfluous and rather besides my point. Air starts are boresighted, correct. Either way it shouldn't really matter. Boresighting should be able to change a pre-boresighted missile to whatever the new boresight setting is, even if its incorrect. Currently the Mav seeker doesn't care where the TGP is looking, as long as the Maverick can lock som
  8. Hey all. As noted in another thread, turns out that the boresighting on the F-16's mavericks is always perfect, even if intentionally done incorrectly. Expected Results: Boresight the Maverick incorrectly against a different target than the TGP is looking at, resulting in an incorrect calibration. When Slewing TGP to new target and handing off to Maverick, would expect Maverick to now retain boresighting error and not be correlated to the TGP. Requiring re-boresighting to correct error. Observed Results: Boresighting is "perfect" even if intentionally done against targets
  9. Regarding the tripple rack, from my understanding they allow(ed) the use of the TER with the two outboard rails being used. The plume issue was when you loaded 3 mavs onto the TER, the inboard mav's exhaust plume/exhaust plug can impinge on the horizontal tail. With a chance of damaging it. Would the 6x AGM-65 loadout have been used in a Fulda Gap style situation where the main idea is "oh my god, kill all the tanks!!"? I dunno... Possibly?
  10. I’ll put a track together and report that boresighting incorrectly somehow still works In the bug section.
  11. Hmm, stores no longer being usable or in extreme cases like the M2000 already does, just ripping clean off the jet. Realistic? Probably not, but it does add a risk that needs to be mitigated against by changing how you fly. Which would be the ultimate point of it. As far as saying “well a real pilot would never pull 9G with heavily loaded jet” yeah, ya don’t say. Regardless of how career limiting that would be irl, sim pilots DO pull rediculous G with AG configurations. Since the release of the Viper I’ve seen people online pulling 8G-9G repeatedly on recovery from a dumb bombing dive
  12. I think this would be great, I'm all for better learning tools, much more so than automatic helpers.
  13. Wanting an option to skip boresighting to avoid a bug in an early acces (and by definition unfinished) product is a bit different from wanting to skip boresighting just because its inconvenient. To me boresighting your mavericks is a cruicial part of using the weapon. If you screw up boresighting then your ability to employ the weapon effectively and quickly at the critical moment is impacted. As such I don't believe there should be an option to skip it. It not like auto-start or a pre-aligned INS because those are just time savers and non-critical to the mission. Boresighting a maverick
