Elevated Heart rate and Sweaty Palms!

So as 2016 passes into 2017, I was reflecting on what DCS World has brought into my life this past year.

 

A new PC and Rift JUST for DCS!

 

Many new and soon to come aircraft. (Hurry up Jan 27! )

 

However, what it all comes down to for me is,

 

After most missions (or flights for that matter),

IF I make a successful landing,

no matter the aircraft, (I do own them all),

I always find I have a elevated heart rate and sweaty palms!:D

It is not from the heat!

 

That is the crux of it.

 

Especially in VR. Mind Blowing.

 

Driving cars in VR comes close but nothing matches that feeling, (or sweat!) I get from this simulator.

 

Elevated Heart Rate and Sweaty Palms!

 

So Thank You ED Team!

 

May the feeling last well into 2020 and beyond!

 

Happy New Year!

"Yeah, and though I work in the valley of Death, I will fear no Evil. For where there is one, there is always three. I preparest my aircraft to receive the Iron that will be delivered in the presence of my enemies. Thy ALCM and JDAM they comfort me. Power was given unto the aircrew to make peace upon the world by way of the sword. And when the call went out, Behold the "Sword of Stealth". And his name was Death. And Hell followed him. For the day of wrath has come and no mercy shall be given."

Back when the A-10 was first released, I created landing missions just to practice. Almost every landing produced the same thing. I would have to take a break, just to calm down.

 

If that happens to a real pilot, I can't imagine how long it takes to get past that point.

Indeed although I only really fly the Huey and Gazelle, I guess it's the immersion in whatever your doing that makes it so engaging. Looking forward to building my pit and getting oculus rift this year.

 

So yeah a big thank you to ED and the developers. :thumbup:

Control is an illusion which usually shatters at the least expected moment.

Gazelle Mini-gun version is endorphins with rotors. See above.

I did a same thing when I first got MiG-21. I flew only FC3 before, and thought I was a decent pilot :D. The MiG however taught me otherwise, I couldn't land the thing without breaking the gear. So I set up a mission and practiced landings, over and over again until I got it right. Now, thousands of landings later, I still get a slight adrenaline rush each time over the threshold.

 

I can only imagine how it is for the RL pilots, but I bet carrier landings never get old.

When I first got the K-4, I would literally practice at least a 1/2 dozen T/O's and Landings every night. Finally got her down, but not ever over confident. Always knowing she could turn on you at a moments notice.

 

As noted by others, it's always a great feeling to complete a mission or circuit, and bring your bird down safely.

Landing is my favorite thing, which might sound odd since this is combat sim.
