Default Hook to Eye distance

Good evening fellas.

I noticed that in the Super Carrier trailer that the Hook-Eye distance for the F/A-18C was modeled on the PLAT cam view. Will this distance be set for the F-14 as well? Either manually or automatically?

The main reason I ask is that you have to hold about half a ball higher in the Tomcat to trap a 3, simply because the H.E. is shorter for the Hornet than the Tomcat.

Thanks!

Yeah, no, it's not - it is supposed to be an accurate simulation of an RL boat. And I suppose that at some point during the EA of this module we will be able to set up the IFLOLS correctly for various birds.

if You think about why the hook eye distance is bigger for the F-14, and what you already know the physical factors that are modelled, you probably have your answer ...

Maybe a thread in the bug report or wish list will get some attention? Would be nice to have this modeled correctly.

My apologies. I was out of line. But c’mon. Although not perfect, its a great program. I just hate to see criticism after criticism. Too fast, too slow, to expensive, too cheap, no lug nuts blah
BUT, I had a bad morning and was out of line.
My apologies!

Knowing Icefire personally, I guarantee he would agree 100% that "it's a great program". He runs one of the most respected wings in DCS, and wouldn't put a vast amount of his own free time if he didn't think so. Read the original post. He asked a good question because reporting issues is what we're encouraged to do when issues like this come up. There was no complaining. No "whining". You have some serious psychological issues to berate someone so badly for something so innocent.. bad morning or not. Good on you to apologize, but man....
