It's a bug, that can break the game. Feel free to reproduce it yourself. I've done enough work on it.

Try connecting ground power before you turn the knob to SEA. The Harrier is aligned with the help of the ships INS when at sea, which is simulated with the ground power connection in DCS. Guess somebody did not check if ground power is connected when it attempts to align using it. Create a bug report for this. It is a unique bug and not tied to the other INS CTD. Surprised nobody has found it before. But most of your other points are still valid.

The Harrier is worth Half off. The development progress and updates however are not.

It's brilliant. Easily my favourite jet. A lot to learn, and a bitch to master, but very rewarding. The learning curve is STEEP! but very rewarding once you start to get the hang of it. Highly recommended. The only downside is if you don't have rudder pedals, you kinda need them for VSTOL Ops., just like flying a chopper. If you don't have any, get some, it's worth the £100 or so investment as it adds another layer of immersion.

Default My first few weeks in the Harrier

I guess ignorance is bliss. I cant quite identify the bugs you guys are talking about. But it certainly has a few quirks that im trying to get used to.

It sure does seem to go non-ballistic occasionally, when the Kraken comes Snackin. For a while there i was putting her down in the water because no matter my speed the water would absorb me like jello.

Unfortunately, ive already begun to muddy my procedures and controls between the Warthog and the Harrier. So i get confused. IM not certain if im doing wrong procedures, if the module is buggy, or im flat out incorrect in application.

I originally was going to go with the Viggen.. but everyone said the same thing. "Organized Missions" and i dont have any multiplayer friends. Im limited to "Fast Mission" so.. as beautiful as the Viggen is i might go with something else for my 3rd mod.

So, after the beautiful Warthog, and the Harrier, what would YOU get? Fun and flyable .. and how polished and completed.. lol

You know, thats worth asking again

Of all the DCS modules.. which are the best in regard to final product, and which are the most buggy?

Which DCS modules are polished.. and which are quirky?

A stroll through their respective subforums would answer your question. Too much effort or something? Older modules will lean more toward completion than newer ones. You can.even simply scroll through the products page. Top is new, bottom is old

Where i can appreciate what youre saying, its not as anecdotal or linear as that.

For instance. I bought the Harrier. Love it. It was worth every cent, just for the Helicopter hunting alone.

However, if someone had told me that JDAMS are worthless, that JTAC in single player is worthless. Wouldve bought another plane. I fly without labels. Short loiter time, no JTAC, no Labels.. i have to get shot at before i can find half the targets.

i didnt read about that in the forums during my research, hell i asked a couple people directly and they failed to mention the JTAC/JDAM problem.

Plus.. people loove to complain. And if its about DCS i love to listen.

Depends on. If you just want to gamble a little bit, you don't value quality so much and you also don't value the module's demands, then you can get hold of it. If this is not the case, I would personally advise you on products from ED, Heatblur, Deka Ironworks or Leatherneck.

Each fighter has a different purpose and depends on what you want to do. It depends on whether it is air-to-air or air-to-ground.

I think it is worth more than half off, it is a great plane and fun to fly and does things no other plane in DCS does. Does it have bugs? of course, but so does every aircraft, they work on them get it corrected and then they update DCS and here comes another raft of bugs, that's just the way it is.The fact that every new plane coming out will be more expensive, allows you to enjoy these sales all the more.
