Anything different about them? Or just a re-release of the identical map?

Everyone's arguments here are reasonable. I personally think it's fair for ED to charge money for the Supercarrier module. Doesn't mean I'm buying it, but it's cool with me. I'm sure those that are...

It wouldn't surprise me if the ground-mapping radar mode, such as for the F/A-18, was coded originally for Vulkan... That's probably why we don't have it yet.

Logitech G603 user here. I just set my mouse to "endurance mode" (125 Hz polling rate, instead of 1000 Hz.)

If you're using AIM-120C missiles as opposed to the older AIM-7 and R-27 jobs, assuming they're modelled in DCS with any degree of realism, it'll be a lot harder to spoof them with chaff.

You're looking at expensive CPUs and cheap graphics cards. For a gaming rig (including for DCS) you'd want to go more in the opposite direction.

That sort of deal is either a graphics driver bug, or caused by excessive overclocking of the GPU or VRAM.

Either reduce any GPU/VRAM OC, or roll back to an earlier driver.

I've noticed it myself... The F-15C, SU-27 and MiG-29 don't do it. Just a dumb blind guess, but maybe the real aircraft is like that? I'm not the person to ask, though.

Did anyone sort out the blurry ground textures issue?

Greetings,

Just wondering if anyone got a handle on this. I have plenty of graphics memory (1080 Ti) and DCS normally uses about half of it, but I still get the blurry textures in the distance.

You're GPU limited. Getting 30 FPS on a 4K screen in DCS with a GTX 1070 sounds about right to me. Instead of buying a new CPU, RAM, and motherboard, you should have gotten a 1080 Ti or RTX 2080/Ti...

I'm sure everyone would love the MiG-29, Su-27, and F-15 released as a full-fidelity module.

Of course you can flare it, the Hornet is just an airplane like any other. No reason you can't.

The reason for not flaring when landing on the carrier is that you want to land at a very exact spot...

You're right, and the jet sims are very well-done, but there's a certain appeal to the stick-and-rudder flying of WW2 fighters for me. They're very 'distilled' combat aircraft.
