But it was acknowledged in our Autumn 2018 update already, with added statement that we're collecting data on it.

What more data? How it works or how to code it?

Yes, technical documentation and translation of it.

Will the F8 have the same dirty, grimy canopy as the Mig-21?

In that case its a "no buy" for me!

No, this time around pilot is forbidden to bring BBQ and soda on board.

It would make me really happy if one of the new carriers was CVA-38 USS Shangri-La. It served in WWII, Korea, and the Cold War. I, and my squadron, were on it in 1967 with the RF-8G Crusader.

Corsair
Hellcat ?
Cougar/Panther
A-4
F-8
Probably some others

I'm with you on this. CVA-38 and/or 34 (Oriskany), 31 (Bon Homme Richard), 19 (Hancock), 16 (Lexington), 14 (Ticonderoga) and 11 (Intrepid). These 7 of the 24 Essex-class carriers because they had steam catapults from the late 50's through early 70's, when practically all were retired. The ships might be close enough in configuration that one 3D model could be made and labeled with the different hull numbers and names. The A-4 and F-8 (and RF-8 ) were the primary armament of these angled-deck, steam catapult carriers...as I'm sure you know, much more than I. Other aircraft would be the A-3B Skywarrior, A-1 Skyraider, C-1 Trader and E-1 Tracer. We only have the technically limited A-4E-C Skyhawk flying right now and I hope we really do get the F-8J Crusader. The others likely will only be as AI aircraft or static shapes (deck ornaments). YES, just one of these carriers (when they had angled decks) would be awesome!! I'd be perfectly happy with CVA-38!


Would love to have a straight-deck CV-34 or -38 from the Korea Era with F9F-5 Panther, AD-4 Skyraider (A-1D) and F4U-4 Corsairs and the HO3S-1 helicopter. Even an escort carrier like CVE-118 or such. These had hydraulic catapults, I believe.


And if Magnitude 3 is really making an F4U-1D, then we're talking WWII-era and we need something like CV-12, -15 or -16 in original configuration, as well as CVE and CVL carriers. But I don't know if there will ever be enough interest in these to warrant them ever being developed in DCS. Which makes me wonder, why Magnitude 3 wants to make the F4U-1D??


I would rather these developers coordinate and create aircraft for a specific era/theater. Right now, I think Vietnam era is the one to go after. This will require a large map of some 700nm x 700nm. I don't know what the technical challenge of that is. Although, the Tonkin Gulf part of it could be about 300nm x 400nm, I think. Supposedly the Falklands map is being developed. That needs an A-4B/C Skyhawk, Super Etendard, Mirage III? and Sea Harrier. Of which there are none in development that I know of. So what gives? Coordinate!

Question: How difficult would it be to include an option for the module where we could choose dirtiness level of the windshield/canopy from 0 (perfectly clean) to 3 (dirty as it was)? Don't take me wrong, I'm just simply asking if that is feasible to do. Giving us users plenty of options, really makes us happy.


Regarding criticism of the MiG-21...
I shelved the MiG-21 for several months (so many other modules to fly), but just dusted it off this week and after some re-familiarization, learned how to fly in close formation with an AI F-5E! Something I hadn't been able to do very well in other aircraft. It isn't that bad, it's just challenging compared to an F-15 or F-18 with a velocity vector displayed in a HUD! The F-5E has been pretty challenging, too. Actually, the MiG-21 is very detailed and I'm happy with it. I had a PIO problem with it in pitch, but after flying a couple hours in formation, that problem magically went away. I had previously adjusted the joystick response curves because it was just too squirrely for me with straight response. I adjust that for all the modules, not just the MiG-21.


I'm starting to think that what I thought were problems with some of these modules were really just my lack of piloting skills. How good can a "pilot" be if he/she switches from plane to plane every few weeks and has only 25 hours flight time in each of a dozen models, as I have? I only have 14 hours and 22 landings in the MiG-21. An AI MiG-15 gives me fits in combat, though. I think there is more to being a fighter pilot than whipping the nose around the sky and pointing it at your adversaries. The F-5E feels like about as much of a "dog" in a turning fight as the MiG-21. The F-15 is easier, I think because of its excellent thrust-to-weight ratio. I'm NOT a fighter pilot! I have a lot to learn about energy management and BFM, I think.


One problem (of many) is with DCS. If you follow its ATC instructions or an AI aircraft, it directs you to a runway that is not aligned with the wind. So taking off in the MiG-21 on the assigned runway with 10 knots wind at your back can make you roll down the runway too fast and blow the tires (well, that may be too sensitive in this module, I don't know). I take off into the wind, even if the AI plane goes the opposite way. AI really, really needs some basic attention.

Magnitude, you guys still around? Haven’t seen a peep from you in awhile.
