  1. Hey guys, any idea how to add a desert flight suit to the pilot for my skin? This is not for the in-cockpit pilot, but as part of the external skin when looking from the outside. I assume add a dds file to the skin (because otherwise it uses the default green suit) and then add a line to the description in some way?

    Navy Pilot?

    Any ideas when we might get an accurate Navy Pilot with appropriate flight gear in the cockpit?...and preferably with a desert flight suit?
  3. I've only been messing with the external color setting mostly and the haze. I hit alt F12 and it snaps back to default when i hit those buttons. Same happens if i go into the ini file and change it to say alt f11 or shift f11 etc.
  4. This mod is awesome! But.....I just cant get it to save the settings. Alt F12 doesnt work--just closes it and goes back to default. Ive tried going into the config ini and changing to different keys but no matter what keys i use, just immediately changes it back to default.
  5. Any progress on this feature....or are we likely waiting until March for it?
  6. 24:13 for Clouds/weather
  7. Kate said in some interview awhile back that the weather system is done and they are just waiting on the new clouds/artwork. Must have misspoke though, because pictures of the new clouds are everywhere but in game.
  8. hey Mustang, is there any way to make the water more dark blue instead of greenish/turquoise? All the DCS maps have water that looks like a lagoon.
  9. I think the disappearing/re-appearing is because, in VR, the textures are only rendered in one eye. This is true for a number of textures, not just clouds. I've also just resigned myself to flying with no clouds at all...which for a modern flight sim in 2020 is just completely silly. That, and the weird lighting that is always wrong in the cockpit if correct for outside and visa-versa, just makes it not fun to fly this sim anymore.
  10. Are the clouds not spinning in VR anymore?
  11. Have to be trimmed onspeed first. If not, nothing else will work. Go up to 5 thousand feet, dirty up and learn to trim the aircraft first. Then practice turns at that altitude. If you are trimmed onspeed, the VV will be in the middle of the E-Bracket and the jet will be dead stable. Then the throttle should move the E-Bracket and VV together up and down without moving the stick. PS, make sure you are 33 thousand lbs or less, or you will be flying a brick.
  12. Rudder is used on the F-14 to coordinate the turn. Rudder is not used in the F-18. Also shouldn't have to use back pressure on the stick, unless you are correcting for a mistake. Elevation and glide slope/rate of decent is entirely controlled by power, and you will have to put right pressure in the stick slightly to offset the F-18's negatively stable tendency to increase bank angle. All of the above is exactly true to the real Hornet, except the negatively stable banking--not sure if that is true to the RL Hornet flight model. PS, during the recovery, especially on final, the throttle i
