Server's back up.
Sorry, Windows was downloading some updates without my knowledge. I thought I had the automatic updating option off. My bad.

Phone Booth is as fun as ever. It's perfectly judged in terms of size and pace. I only wish we had some Su-17s or MiG-23s to play with, that could've made ground pounding for REDFOR so much more fun.

EDIT: @Alpenwolf, do you have any plans regarding the introduction of the MiG-23 once that's released? I'm wondering how that will affect the balance of the game before the F-4 is released (and that's years away). The F-8 is unlikely to address that concern.

I've said that long time ago, yes. The MiG-23 and the F-4 will be included. Especially in missions with mountains and hills around for lesser fighters to hide around. Both planes will be in limited numbers; 4-6 slots, no more, unless I design a mission or two where having 8 slots is ok. But that's in years to come.


As for the Su-17... well...

Oh I know that thread. The funny thing is, with the Su-22M4 still in service with the Polish Air Force (despite the type being considered obsolete) information should be relatively easy to come by, even for a 3rd party developer. I still don't get why no-one has picked it up yet. This would've been a day one purchase for me.

As for the Flogger, I presume you're going to limit it to R-60s and R-23s, at least initially?

Yeah, probably, until the F-4 arrives.

Blue always outnumbers Red to the point of unplayability whenever I am on the server. I remember years ago people would swap to the other side if there was a too bad of an unbalance but that gallantry seems to have died away now.

As a REDFOR player, I don't mind being outnumbered that much, unless of course there's enough enemy aircraft to swarm you every time you get on someone's tail (or attempt to). My only issue is when BLUFOR has enough planes to completely saturate the air defences around the Red base's perimeter and thus attack the airfield with impunity. Few things in DCS are as frustrating as trying to navigate a bombed-out runway while being strafed.
