  1. I have decided to say goodbye to the DCS community and DCS as a whole. I have been playing DCS for 2 years now and have enjoyed being able to fly the various modules, Tomcat, F18, Huey, Gazelle, F16 to name a few but unfortunately some elitist members of this “community” make it not a nice, actually extremely toxic place to be. I have seen it time and time again whenever anyone voices a legitimate grievance (Usually comes down to a complete lack of communication) there are a selection of White Knights and apologists who will take it upon themselves to ridicule, belittle and attack this cus
  2. That skin looks amazing Reflected.
  3. Here's a great documentary shot aboard U.S.S. Constellation in the late 80's featuring VF-21. My mate in secondary who introduced me to the F-14 had this on VHS after watching this I was hooked.
  4. On the old forum i used to open the forum, then could go to Official Updates for example and with a glace you could see if the thread you were interested in had been updated as the heading was bold and then jump straight to the last page. Is this possible here? Atm i'm seeing Sticky's highlighted (in yellow) but cannot tell if the thread has been updated and can't see if it's possible to quickly go to the last page. Anyone know if this is doable on the new forum.
  5. Thanks for the update Mike and thanks to you and your team for making my Top Gun dreams a reality.
  6. Thanks Mike. When Cobra stated you'd start "discussing the sweeping changes next week" I took that to mean you'd start to show more of, the A in particular the week commencing 14th September.
  7. Have i missed posts from HB relating to the F14. Cobra said in the F14 Priority post on the 8th September "Stay tuned as we begin discussing the sweeping changes to the F-14 coming in October next week!" As of yet i haven't seen anything relating to the A at all. I've only seen the changelogs so far. Have i missed some posts somewhere?
  8. In RL this has happened. There was a particular incident in the 80's where an airliner was witnessed by the radar operator breaking into several pieces. He called "I've got multiple returns, It's showing 5 returns!!" Or words to that affect as he watched this happen.
  9. IronMike posted this a few days ago. Doesn't sound like it's coming in the next patch sadly.
  10. For christmas my nephew wanted a VR ready gaming PC. My sister gave me a budget and asked me to build it. To the best of my recollection this is what i put in it. I7 4790k, Corsair H100i, 16gb Corsair Vengeance ram and MOBO bundle £300 EVGA 600W PSU £50 Asus Strix 1070 £210 1gb SSD £100 500gb SSD £30 NZXT H500i £90 Oculus Rift CV1 & Touch £230 This machine runs DCS in VR on medium-high settings without any issue at all, more importantly though only cost a grand. I got a DK2 in 2014 and cannot imagine playing a vehicle sim on a monitor anymore. I've found that muscle memory h
  11. I've tried but no joy. I'll try reinstalling the Cat and see if that helps
  12. I'm no longer able to turn on the lights on the Tomcat. Prior to last weeks update i would set my lights using the right side panel and hit a button on my throttle i'd set as the master toggle. This no longer works. I'm unable to get any lights except for cockpit lights.
  13. I know this sounds like a daft question but i always thought the Tomcat first flew on the 21st December 1970. Did the Tomcat fly before that?
  14. It has made such a difference. I really struggled to fly Helicopters with anything close to competence. This has changed that, I have already seen massive improvement. Pretty amazed really.
  15. I've been enjoying the Huey for several months now but there was a pretty major aspect that, no matter what i tried i just couldn't master. Of course i'm talking about hovering. While i saw a little improvement I couldn't keep anything like a steady, stable hover or transition back to, erm what i could do in the way of hovering. I have been using a HOTAS Warthog just sat on my desk, today i received a Helicopter extension from a UK seller on ebay. What can I say but WOW!!!! Last night i was unable to hold a hover 3 feet off the tarmac, today - 10 minutes after installing the extensio
  16. Can you help with this at all please. I purchased Nevada and the A10C this morning. Once installed i tried to launch DCS and got the following error message Failed to request product key from steam, please try again in a few minutes. I have verified the integrity of the game files, cleared the download cache, restarted Steam, my PC several times and my router but nothing has worked. I have logged a support ticket 96003, hoping to get this sorted soon i was hoping to do a bit of flying this weekend. Thanks
  17. ???? Since i transitioned from ACLS this Jester callout would be perfect for most of my traps.... He did say something like "hey nice landing man" last week but he may have meant it sarcastically though.
  18. Need a 2080ti or above is a bit excessive. I originally ran DCS World with an EVGA 980 with 4gb vram. I'm now using a Strix 1080 paired with a 4790k using the high settings preset. It runs flawlessly. A, 2080ti would be a luxury but by no means a minimum.
  19. My first experience with VR was Euro Truck Sim 2 in 2014 with an OR DK2 and my system was an off the shelf PC World (UK Electronics store) POS. I7 860 @3ghz, Nvidia GT260, 8GB ram. I got used to VR after a few hours although the Nausea at first was pretty pants. However i have never looked back. The immersion offered, particularly for simulation games cannot be matched, even the reduced visual fidelity of VR headsets is worth the trade off in my opinion. My point is, get the Rift S, take A2597's advice and build tolerance slowly you will not be sorry. You can upgrade your system when you c
  20. I was also having this problem, was due to having a steering wheel, pedals and SKRS shifter plugged in also (see the thread "pitching up problem") I unplug these now while playing DCS and touch wood haven't experienced the issue since. Have you got anything plugged in that could be interfering with your control axis?
  21. The SU-33 installed straight away when i pre-ordered the SC
