  1. OH hell....... That "Edit" was meant for another post I made about INS alignment. I just deleted it out of the comment.
  2. I'll prolly get in trouble for posting those off topic photos above. Sheees! But somebody should see some of these things. It still goes on today. Oh hell I guess i should delete that post. I tell you what, mods, I'll buy the "overpriced" Syria map as punishment!
  3. Well...we had occasion to carry firearms....but not for Indians of course. First photo is just crossing the Owyhee River out looking for sign of cattle. Second is how we train our saddle horses line up on "the ropes" and wait, while catch the ones we want with a lariat. We take these ropes and set them up staked out like that in the next camp. Third is just us in the corral at the home ranch. Fourth - is saddling up at first light. The horse in front was on my string. I used to hobble his front legs like that with burlap so you could get your saddle on or off him. These were taken around 2
  4. I contact ground crew to request launch pushing the " \ " key. Nothing happens. Is there another frequency I must use?
  5. I'll make sure to attempt that.
  6. 64 ......................... My dad was Flight simming at when he was about the same age. Before that he was flying Tiger Moths.
  7. 1) Often when driving my F18 on the carrier deck the NWS doesn't work properly and instead of turning away from the edge of the deck it goes straight, sometimes into the ocean. It's random. 2) Sometimes, after landing on a carrier and rearming and refueling the crew ignores me at the catapult and wont hook me up. Are they bugs? (This is the Stable Version)
  8. Funny you should ask that question because that was the first thing I thought of when I heard the size of the Syria map which is about 300,000 SQ Miles Several of the cattle ranches on which I rode horseback for as a Cowboy were about 3,000 SQ miles. One was the ZX Ranch out of Oregon which is about 140 miles X 65 miles at the largest points. I remember taking about 2,000 head of cattle from the northern reaches of the ranch down to about Paisley, Oregon. Which is not quite all the way to the southern end. Much of the way there was not even a trail to follow because it had
  9. Some good footage about halfway through of low level high velocity F-18 over the oceans. F/A-18 Super Hornet Hi-Speed Low-Level Maneuvers • Cockpit View - YouTube
  10. A shame that VKB chose to work through China. Probably would have been better to use Taiwan.
  11. Aliexpress doesn't seem to have VKB for sale anymore!
  12. Are you ready the start making these UTC II again? I'm ready to order.
  13. I did not forget anything. I have no idea who you are talking about. I don't know what "combined arms people " are. But if DCS is leaning towards making little people run around like Call of Duty and Battlefield now, then I'm out. I need a real flight sim not some harebrained operation that tries to capitalize on all the fads and offer a slice of pie to whoever whines the loudest and which goes after all the fads. Almost everyone who started with DCS came to fly! ...Is this where flight sims go to die?
  14. ANy interior of the carrier is time wasted! .....You can't fly inside a carrier. This is pure stupidity. We have so many more important needs. No one wants to add any more GB to the DCS World DL because of "interior of the carrier" as other such nonsense. Not to mention the extra RAM and FPS problems it would cause.
  15. Sounds good...Let's have a Star Wars map for that X-Wing too!
  16. Why not add this into the stable?
  17. I just found out about these things from Youtube today too! They are out of stock at the moment anyway. But no mention of how much they cost. Anyone know? Oh .......here's a better instructions on installing the mod. (1) Fix and upgrade your TWCS throttle slider for butter-smooth action and a bonus feature! - YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PndDrVpef6U
  18. If you like to fly Russian you'll won't find a more interesting video. Even the head of Sukhoi shows up in this in Syria.
  19. Definitely... she is Russian. Oh those were the days. ........................To be back in St Petersburg!
  20. I had the same just happen to me. In fact I thought that DCS had updated yesterday and then restarted. But today I realized it is the old version of DCS and the update never finished. When I try to DL the update again I see that Windows Defender stops it due to the trojan. Well, now that I see that its a false alarm I'll ignore the warning.
  21. I have one SSD C:\ which was intended to be only for the OS and related files. I have another larger SSD D: which I have tried to use for, DCS World, and other programs. The problem: Somehow, DCS is spread over both SSD drives. Somehow there are DCS files in C:\ Saved Games. And there are DCS files in a specified location, where they are supposed to be, in D:\ The Questions: Is this going to be a potential problem later on down the road? What would be the safest and easiest way to collect DCS onto the D drive if I wer
  22. I don't usually fly with the VPN or Paint.....this ScreenShot was quickly taken for demonstration purposes. There is not much difference with these things on or off anyway. However, I will be upgrading the RAM and have asked for some opinions on another threat about this. I was mostly worried about the GPU. But after doing a web search I read that the GPU is not a problem. I think the RAM might be though.
  23. It seems that I am collecting a bunch of ram sticks of various sizes and speeds. I'll be able to upgrade Mrs Cuckoo's laptop with more of my old ram again, soon.
