Medical Team. Visible units in the cargo bay if you are transporting troops. A winch for fastroping special unit and so on. {...}

 

 

I like these ideas. Especially the crew winch, which would be neat for plucking downed pilots out of the sea (this mechanism really needs to exist, given the carrier-based nature of DCS!).

 

 

 

Oh, and so we can operate it off the upcoming supercarrier module, can we have a fictional US navy-grey and US coastguard red-white paintscheme addeds too? Thanks! :)

Hi guys, just coming back to the Mi-8 after many years not flying it (3 years maybe). And I'm really enjoying it.

 

 

 

I would pay 10-15 bucks too for an extension pack, something like multi crew, graphic overhaul, and a new variant as suggested. I compltely disagree with the EA policy with F-16 and F/A-18 (empty shell at full price), I would agree to pay a little to maintain older very good modules like the Hog or the Hip up to date

Guys, please stop wishing to pay for updates... :music_whistling:

Anyway, nothing is planned (or announced) regarding the Mi-8.

KA-50 new cockpit should arrive in the following days or weeks and (we hoppe) that the Mi-24 is still up and running...

Nothing more than that...

I dont want to pay for an overhaul like the A10C and the Ka-50.

 

 

But i am willing to pay for an expansion-pack. New stuff.

Mi-8MTv version that has the ATGM capability as paid upgrade variant. But otherwise add the rope from the rear for fast roping (doesn't it happen from the rear hatches in the Mi-8?) and of course possibility to man the rear gunner at the rear hatches, not just the sidedoor gunner!).

 

The side door should be used for lifting the downed pilots (extremely important feature for DCS so that if you eject, you need to be picked up to continue in Multiplayer server, and if you die in cockpit, your pilot career is gone forever. And you need to maintain your career to get bonuses, weapons etc to fly and use. That would put air quake to the end where pilots are fearing to get shot down for nothing!)

I totally agree with you. Now that ED did an overhaul on the a10 & ka50 and razbam did the same with the mirage I think is time for the mi8. The cockpit is very dark and low resolution also the flight physics are unreal and no mention that many promise like multycrew were not completed.

Multicrew has in progress and has a core feature, no exclusive.

This is a little example, check the speed and how high he is when he did the stunt. This guy has more than 100 videos on the mi-8 doing impossible stunts on real life. That's how i know, can you prove me wrong?:smartass:

So, you're assuming that flight physics are not correct since you can do a stunt in the sim, this very stunt which don't even came through the Mi-8 Engineer's mind ? I think it's best to completely stop flight sim in this case, because flight physics will never be 100% true. Never.

 

 

 

As I see things : -Is the flight model correct for most of the normal flight envelope of the aircraft AND is coherent with what the flight manual says ? Yes > Fine, No> Ask the devs for corrections.

 

 

 

-Is the aircraft handling correct in completely absurd aerobatics manoeuvers for which it was never designed to and that we do purely because we will not die if the manoeuver fails because we are in a computer game ? Yes>Fine, No>Don't care, since IRL, a pilot will never try to perform them anyway (except some Pappy Boyington around there x) ).

 

 

 

I'm not saying you are completely wrong, I just want to share with you another vision of what a ''real'' flight model can be in a sim in which it will never be 100% true anyway.

Bro, multicrew was one of the broken promises, and after 6 years....:noexpression::(

besides that is for the UH-1H not for the mi-8.

 

I totally agree with you ! :thumbup:

Broken promises...mmmm why is it that when I see those two words I immediately think to the Mi-24 module ? :D:D

Ok, now you are butt-hurt because you asked me for an example and I gave it to you. The mi8 module is nice, but make it work like it's suppose to fly is very difficult. Do you see videos of real mi8 moving like in dcs? and I'm talking about take off or landing and I'm not talking about stunts. Look bro, we are in the same page just that I don't have the patient for waiting 7 more years to get the module finished. That's why I'm not willing to pay for a graphics overhaul like the ka 50, but I will $15-20 for an expansion of capabilities. If they make a mi17-V5 I using this module as a base I'm willing to pay up to $30. Hopefully :drink:
