  1. Position/ Nav Lights on Mirage 2000 aircraft that are flown by AI/ other players are ridiculously bright after latest patch. And they seem to just become 10 times brighter all of a sudden at a certain range. Looks absolutely ridiculous!
  2. I was extremely excited about Liberation. On paper it sounded absolutely brilliant. In practice I thought it was unplayable for a number of reasons: 1. even with culling/ no smoke etc, it ran absolutely terrible - since we have no multi-core support all those units just kill the CPU. 2. Integration of AI units in missions was terrible. I mean in the sense that without tweaking and testing to make sure the AI don't end up doing really dumb stuff from the get go, it was basically one AI f up after another f up. That killed more immersion than it created. I know Liberation is getting improvements all the time but as it stands I believe it is unplayable. I think those that swear by it make enormous compromises in either performance or AI tracks/ behavior. Even if the AI was not an issue, I don't see how you can run Liberation on any system without multi-core support. It's just too heavy on the CPU. Either that or accept crappy fps
  3. The problem with making your own missions is that you always know what to expect and what will happen. So yeah, I'm waiting for someone to make some good content for Syria. Personally I think ED should be devoting much much more time and effort towards missions and campaigns.
  4. I was literally just about to make the same post. Yes, quite funny - the Medevac just spins round endlessly without crew with a broken tail. I liked the mission otherwise! When is the rest of the campaign coming out?
  5. Literally the entire map is full of ISIS locations/ strikes... the amount of possibilities for Allies/ Russia anti-ISIS operations is limitless. The US had strikes from a carrier group here too so it boggles my mind that we have no decent Syria missions and campaigns. https://ig.ft.com/sites/2015/isis-oil/ https://twitter.com/coalition/status/891309341277663233/photo/1
  6. Ah thanks. I actually acquired the ACM campaign already a wile back and realised it was a waste of money (for me). I really dislike both that and the F-18 BFM campaign that I have. I really felt it was not very well put together. Oh well. Thanks anyhow!
  7. Hi Sedlo, I don't suppose you have any more new AV-8B or F-18 missions? Your Red Flag F-18 missions were the best I've every come across. I just wish there was bit more. Especially for the Harrier. I tried Vulcan Forge but gave up kind of quickly as I wasn't a fan of the comms voicovers and the fictional scenario. I know it was your early work. I remember you were saying you have an F-18 campaign ready to go. Is that getting close? Also the Syria map has virtually zero content atm.
  8. Would be good to see a video of how it looks like in game. This would have been a total slideshow for me. Are you getting stuttering flying closer to terrain objects/ cities etc at low level?
  9. I'm just watching a video now and this guy is using some sort of red crosshairs that appears in the middle of the screen, points to a target a relays a command to the AI wingman. How do you turn on this feature? I've never seen that before. Many thanks!
  10. Hi folks, Can't find any info on this. I'm building some missions in DCS doing strikes on ISIS targets in Syria. Does anyone know if ISIS had any captured operational SAMs? Or does it not go beyond ZSU-23s and MANPADs in terms of air defense? Cheers!
  11. I'm in exactly the same boat! After years of waiting for a VR headset that doesn't have a damn screen door effect and actually looks good when you look through the lenses, I pulled the trigger on the G2 - great headset (not the be all, end all for sure, but still super great for a great VR experience) and then realised just how massive a compromise one needs to make to run it even remotely well - so you end up with the feeling of being in the plane with everything turned right down to just make it run. I thought the years of waiting for a VR headset with a great image totally defeats the purpose if you have to turn all the scenery, shadows etc down and on top of that you can't even use anti-aliasing which just reminds me of every old VR headset I've tried and walked away from. Anyway, I sold my G2 shortly after. Going back to a 2D screen is bitterly disappointing and feels like making 5000 steps back but I feel like I had no choice. People really make massive compromises to run VR which I can't. I was considering buying the G2 again after I get my hands on 3080Ti but honestly feel like until we see multi-core utilisation in this sim, VR is not worth if for someone like me. I mean it's crazy to think that with 16 cores @ 4.3GHz and a 3080Ti you are running VR on essentially minimum graphics settings. It's quite sad. Either way though I know ED is working on something like Vulcan so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that by the end of the year I can write a post about how VR is the only way to go in DCS
  12. That's great, thanks guys! I didn't realise the markpoint gets stores as another waypoint at the end of the sequence. Many thanks!
  13. So I just tested this with a GBU-16 with fuse set to tail, D2 (delay 2 I assume which would make sense) with an AV-8B dropping onto a bunker (hangar on an airfield) on the Syria map which housed a MiG-21 as an "uncontrolled, starting from ramp" AI unit. My bomb did not destroy the MiG... so did I just not hit the bunker properly or is it impossible to destroy a plane in a bunker with a bomb in DCS? Cheers!!
  14. Is it possible to do something like this for the AV-8B?
  15. Just curious. Can't find any info on this. I'm just wanting to create a realistic mission to fly in DCS with AV-8B hitting ISIS targets. In real life were any AV-Bs flying from land bases to hit targets or from LHA only? Cheers!
  16. Had a look at Chucks Guide and youtube videos and can't make it work. Basically all I want is to slew my TPOD around on different targets, mark them for later and then be able to easily snap back to those targets with the TPOD using those markpoints that I;ve created. When I have the TPOD pointing at a particular target I press the "Mk" button on the bottom of the EHSD... ok... but I can't make the boxed DESGN turn from STP to a markpoint - in a video by Grim Reapers he said you need to press the TDC down to change it from STP to a markpoint (TGP) but nothing happens when I press TDC down (down not aft) irrespective of whether I have the SOI set as the TPOD or as the HUD... any ideas? Many thanks!
  17. Hi guys, does anyone know the difference between the F-5 BFM Campaign and the F-5 ACM Campaign that is sold by ED? Would anyone recommend it? Are these any good? I tried the F-18 Aggressors BFM campaign before and got a bit bored of it. Maybe partly because there's just no challenge in fighting any AI fighter in an F-18. It's just too easy. I guess in an F-5 it's a bit more interesting. But irrespective of that, which one would be more interesting of those 2 campaigns for the F-5? Cheers!
  18. I find using my 4k monitor the briefing window is ridiculously small. I'm straining my eyes to read it all the time. Very annoying
