There's definitely an element of this, for sure - but cockpit design puts certain controls on the left side so that they can be used in tandem with the flight stick. That's why things like landing...

How are you controlling things in VR?

I'm just getting back into flight-sims again with the HTC Vive. Things have changed just a bit between 1.5 and 2.5! :D

Talking Back in the Saddle, again

Hey, DCS people! It's been awhile; I hung up the flight stick for over a year due to moving across country, new job, new house, renovations, etc.

But I'm back - and this time 'geared up' with an...

Would we like to see an expansion of the 109 to include other variants? Hell yes - more planes is always good. More things to learn is good.

However, have we ever seen developers come back to a...

It's another system to simulate.

Probably not a horrifically complex one, but it's an added feature.

Developers have to limit the specifications somewhere, and lock them down.

ED is a business.

If there's enough money behind GA aircraft, they'll build them, or license the 3rd party FSX developers to port/build for DCS.

If there isn't, they won't.

L-39C and NVG?

It's not realistic, the L-39C isn't used with NVGs, the module doesn't have NVGs, and L-39C cockpit is not designed for NVGs.

I totally get that.
