I was able to buy it in the online store while I wait for the update to download. About bloody time ED gave me something else to spend money on. I was missing that great big sucking sound you hear when you play free games... :thumbup::joystick:

Love the way DCS is talking up the AV-8 on the newsletter. To make this truly viable, you need to fix the fact that the AI cant land on the Tarawa. That needs to be fixed ASAP. You can see LSO messages on the Tarawa but they do not land correctly. Its a mess.

I was in Art of the Kill D#@ it!!!!

And once again no single word about Huey Multi-Crew. It´s been mentioned around Kates Road map along with a little sneak peek and a release window of May. Since we passed that timeframe...dead silence. I know that it is still being worked on. But that's the case also for other stuff which is regularly mentioned in updates and newsletters as well. I don't expect to have a fixed release date, I know that this is not possible. I just want to have some signs of life, what's the progress, whats the difficulties...these are things mentioned for other things too, why not Huey Multi-Crew? Is it so hard to give us Rotor guys some info?

What do you expect? It's been out since just a few days. Lets talk about VR performance once it's fully released.

I have a question about the Siria map : is it entirely with sand, rock, like the Persian Gulf map ?

With Google Earth, I tried to have a better idea. On the North West of Siria, somewhere between Lataka-Homs-Al Qusayr -Tartus-Hamah, there are some hills, green fields, etc

Could anyone with more experience, give some details, please ?

I would be really disappointed to have another " sand rock map "

Thank you

Large parts of it should have mediterranean climate, so it's definitely not only sand and rocks. For the coastal regions, think greek islands like the one featured in a well known military sandbox shooter...

Going further east, you'll eventually end up with quite a lot of sand and stones, but topography should still be different from Persian Gulf...

All the talk about a new map being VR optimized not yet when the whole sim isn't even icon_redface.gif

 

Well, I look forward to the new map as I've been waiting for that one for a while now and it's been utterly silent lately - glad to have some news finally. Then we just need some planes like the Phantom and Flogger and it's gonna be awesome! 01-rainbowkiss.png

 

And PG isn't just sand rock... it's Dune. He who controls the Spice... dealwithit.png

 

I still wonder though why the newsletter has that part about the Harrier... it's neither new nor is it going to be completed / out of Early Access anytime soon twi-notbad.png

Completely normal.

 

Same happened to the Scud, SA-2, A-20 and other assets.

 

Development screenshot and then some long silence.

From the newsletter...

 

The Spanish and Italian Navy both actively operate the AV-8B V/STOL.
Does that mean there are now Spanish / Italian paintschemes?

 

The Night Attack was first seen causing real havoc with the United States Marine Corps during the Gulf War of 1991.
I had to read that several times.

 

The marvellous machine continues to provide exceptional realism and withholds many features a Hornet Pilot could only dream of.
Did you really mean "withholds"? Or was that supposed to be "has"?

 

 

 

 

I'm also a little puzzled why the AV8B got such a feature in the Newsletter. Did I miss something?

Or perhaps this is related to something Ron said in the interview he gave to the Air Combat Sim Podcast a few days ago. He mentioned that they secured a deal for the Harrier very similar to the one they made with the French Armée de l'Air, perhaps something bigger is in the works.

 

Pure speculation from my part.
