Default Outstanding Module!!!

This I-16 Type 24 relighted my interest in DCS World.

I never tried OctopusG's add-ons for other platforms ( believe FSX and P3D only ? ), and my experience with non-ED / Belsimtek modules for DCS was very dissatisfying, with the exception of the Mig-21, but I gave up on modern air combat jets for good... so I was very reluctant to buy the I-16.

Watched all of the available videos during teh two days after release, and eventually decided to give it a try.

Wow! It's REMARKABLE!

What a Great module!

Bring back more !!!!

Have you tried latest updates? All the modules, third parties included, had many updates and in recent times it can't be said third parties didn't live up to the initial expectations, even though we had to wait a long time.


With regards to I-16 I agree, little unexpected surprise that make me less reluctant to third parties prop modules which I wasn't sure that could match ED prop modules and FMs. OctopusG did a terrific job with the I-16.

Do you know how many bugs and missing systems the latest jets have? Ignorance is bliss

Yeah, I know. Still they are way better than before . But this isn't perhaps the subforum to comment those, right?

Anyway, I'm back playing DCS, and that's for sure thanks to this I-16 !

Welcome back mate! I am loving this new module too and will be looking to find like minded chaps to make up a Red Five aerobatic group, an emulation of the thirties Soviet Airforce's KRASNAYA PYATERKA.
Anyone interested? I use VR exclusively now, not very good for combat as spotting is an issue but for formation/aerobatic work it's the dog's rollocks...

Euan, thanks !

I would really like to join you, but I'm far from VR. I actually started using TIR for the first time around 2014, and it made using this kind of simulation a lot easier and interesting.

Unfortunately about a year ago that TIR broke for good. But recently I bought EDtracker, which makes a new entry into "3d-awareness" again :-) but that's as far as I can go for now :-)

I remember reading your threads years ago, in other sims too if I am not mistaken. My timezone is GMT but because I work both day and night shifts and have a good number of days off too, 5 shifts on and 5 shifts off, I can work around other people's schedules.

I am currently awaiting the build and dispatch of my new system, as in the signature. Once I get that up and running within the next few weeks then I will be seriously into building up a group. VR/non-VR with experience or without it doesn't matter as a crew learns together.

Currently I run a Discord server, called 'Come Fly with Me' as in Frank Sinatra's hit. I will be moving to my own TS server with the new build. I will include the permanent link to the Discord server here and you should feel most welcome to drop by and say hi.
Would be great to meet up and fly anything, I love all the warbird types. I run a nice Spit/Mustang training mission too if that is to your taste. Over the next couple of days I am at home and flying a lot.

Thx Euan!

I'll be a bit busy the next few days, but will certainly try to find the time to at least join your Discord server.

I agree with jcomm...

I am having a great time with this wonderful little plane. A very pleasant surprise and I hope there are other planes in their future.
