    But there are other players who do care. I’m sure this will be a setting that can be turned on an off as desired. Except in MP where everyone needs to be kept equal. 


    Most ignorant statement ever, there has never been equality, and never will, just a high horse some pretending to ride.  Saddle up care'n Karen and ride it.

  2. It's available now for free upgrade if your on windows 10, not on no insiders either.  Installed win 10 on my new machine using my original license from win7, than did the ungrade to 11.  Besides it wanting to turn your desktop into a cellphone seems OK, there's quick ways to get rid of that carp.  You'll just have to search for a direct link.

  3. If the pull for this had any strength at all MAC would have been a thing by now and based on that subscription model.  This isn't good for us long term players who take frequent vacations for months or years at a crack but continue to follow, study, and buy the whole while, there's more of us than you'd think.  Very few stay active the entire time in any game with this many years of longevity, and that longevity itself shows this business model is working for them as it is.  Most of us keep coming back for the quality content and have proven we will always pay directly for great content.

  4. G-2 from an odyssey, colors aren't quite as rich on the G-2, but close, the clarity you get will never match no matter what you do to an odyssey.  Odyssey has the best cockpits ever with those rich colors and its close up clarity is not bad, but put on a G-2 and your suddenly flying heads out of the pit, occasionally scanning instruments.  Gaining the outside world is well worth it.  My rigs a bit less than yours but upgraded the card to 2070Super upon gaining the G-2.  You can divide your frames in half to get a close estimate on how your G-2 will pull.

  5. And when they eventually do come around to imposing limits your probably not going to be able to see the extremes on your side panels no more, nor much of the hidden switches either.  Say goodbye to easy engine starts, or relatively pain free emergency procedures in some of the jets.  In the C-101 the pedals adjustment is nearly impossible as it is, and you can't advance some of the missions without adjusting them.


    F-10 is your friend, place your head where you think it physically should be, press it, than relax and return your body to your standard comfortable position, hit the recenter VR command, done.  If your on a wheeled chair that swivels, even with limits your still going to suffer issues, this won't be the fix you think its going to be.

  6. The F-4J and S were not limited in their roles of fleet defenders, they were superior.  The gun on the F-4E arrived so late and delayed it was a solution looking for a problem as proven in the stats above.  Missile tech and reliability caught up to the problem rendering it mute, it wasn't all that great in an ACM gunfight since by design it was a high speed interceptor, and for its day wasn't all that bad, so it wasn't a place you ever wanted to end up in anyway.  That gun cost a cutting edge radar set for Air to Air in that day which wasn't rectified till the Hornets set which was small enough to squeeze in fixed the issue.  Till that happened the E had to get shoved aside to a ground pound role, and the D sat as the airspace defender till the very end.  It may have been a great bomb truck, but it lost much of it's original intercept capacity with a radar downgrade, could have just as easily put the ground strike package in a D frame minus a gun and retained both roles.

  7. Don't use them, really don't care for them, nothing impressive or particularly eye catching about them, not as compared to the cockpits themselves.  They don't look good close up as first person, however they do look OK when in other crew positions in some aircraft such as the Tomcat or even the older Huey.  Maybe its the whole Ichabod Crane thing going on, where I'm missing my own head looking down my hollow neck.

  8. Ultimately with a campaign system being built infantry will be required in some detailed form.  They're necessary for the fidelity of any believable campaign generated Helicopter war, who's only real purpose is direct infantry support.  Helicopters are already a defacto player and growing, they certainly don't diminish any ongoing air war for fighters, they add to the experience.  Its the infantry giving the jet jocks the very reason for controlling and contesting the air space in the first place.


    I wouldn't mind seeing things like canned seal teams and other helo usable spec ops, the campaign sets a waypoint for water drop for a specific target, they move by whatever means the mission calls, zodiac or swim, set charges or directly destroy a nearby target, and other assets pick them up later at a specified time and point, or assets swing in with direct fire support as they require via radio comms.  Infantry can give a campaign system some real depth.

  9. If drive space is the issue, just put all your terrains on another drive and create a virtual drop folder.  Game won't know the difference, you can pawn them off to a lesser drive, they're still there and usable since you paid for em.  Windows 10 handles drop folders native, its a designed in feature.



  10. Try this, go into your saved game folder, config file, input, C-101-XX, joystick, in there you'll see a .diff file, get rid of it.  Those red ! should be gone and your good to go.

  11. I don't know about the modern herks and their props, but the old A's B's E's early H's required the number one blade up upon parking for the day.  There was a reason and it was a technical order and on the checklist, the seals had a breather, and they'd develop leaks if you didn't.  I do believe our Navy brethren did the same in their upside down mounted engines in their P-3's.

    Yes, 2.7 only.
    ED changed something with the animations. That's why the MB-339 module have the same "limitations" now. It works but lacks animations in the cockpit.

    Looking at the latest patch notes, especially the C-101, that's an impressive amount of synchronizations that apparently now work by changing the code.  Looking good for the future of multi-crew.

  13. I use the quick mission and advanced generator frequently, but it's sorely lacking in no ability to set up a specific enemy, especially in a one on one quick test fight.  I really miss that feature, especially with so many and varied combinations of air frames and types we currently posses.  I'd spend days in there just testing combinations and probably grab a plane or two I didn't have just to see.
