  • Helicopter-borne infantry (descent). Corrected calculating total number of troops.

Does anyone know what on earth this means ?

 

I believe its weight and descending torque on descending landing the aircraft? number of troops in the helli, so average weight of 190 lbs per troop. up to 15 troops.

Sorry for maybe a stupid question but do owners of The Enemy Within Campaign get an automatic update to version 3.0 or it has to be purchased separately? The reason why I'm asking is that the old and new versions of campaigns are both available in the store at the same time - in my case the old one has "bought" status while the new one is available for purchase.

F/A-18, F-16, F-14, M-2000C, A-10C, AV-8B, AJS-37 Viggen, F-5E-3, F-86F, MiG-21bis, MiG-15bis, L-39 Albatros, C-101 Aviojet, P-51D, Spitfire LF Mk. IX, Bf 109 4-K, UH-1H, Mi-8, Ka-50, NTTR, Normandy, Persian Gulf... and not enough time to fully enjoy it all

I believe you have to purchase it as it has a lot of new content.

You guys are so overly dramatic every winter! Lol

I noticed that Wags wrote :

"Huge amount of work on the data link (D/L). This is probably the most complex system for the Hornet given the network sharing and new APIs that need to be created. We are making good progress and it will be a “game changer”."

 

Does this mean that the Data Link will be extended from SP to MP for Su-27/33 MiG-29, and that they will also gain whatever capabilities that are currently missing, but that are similar to those the F/A-18C gains ?

Cheers.

This means that they use the F-18 as a front runner to create a data link framework. It does not mean that other planes get the data link automatically. It means that rather than starting each time from scratch, using this framework it should be easier (but still it should be assumed that with an effort) to develop data link for another planes (like F-16).

  • JTAC has very short designation range - range is increased.

Does this apply to other laser designation ranges as well? I'm asking, because the laser range (e.g. of the A-10Cs TGP) is currently limited to ~9nm.

There was no note on DCS Changelog and Updates (OB) - but I noticed in Wags last F/A-18c mission (Tolicha Peak Shootout) that STATIC HORNETS LOT20 are no longer an issue for fps.

 

Very nice for mission creating !!

 

Unfortunately, not true. Still an issue. PG Ready on the Ramp about 25fps next to static Hornets, rises to normal 45fps when on runway, but drops as usual when looking to the left at the static Hornets.

Maybe it depends on other factors then ?...

 

Did you tried Wags mission ? In this mission, in VR, when I look the static hornets on ramp my fps and Gpu usage stay the same (45fps and asw) instead of being "cut in half".

 

I'll try in other conditions.

 

(EDIT : I can't test with PG map…)

 

EDIT 2 : in fact it's now way better than before, but still if many static Hornets are present it's hard on fps.

3 pictures : 1st Wags mission, 3 static Lot20 and zero issue with fps

2nd training cold start caucasus, at beginning 2 static Lot20 on left no issue (before it was 25 fps…)

3rd same but I went further on the ramp with many static Lot20 and there fps issue (comparing to non Lot20 static Hornets).

Can you point me to Wags' mission and I'll give it a go.

However, when I run the Caucasus Ready on the Ramp in VR on both latest OB and stable, then there is no difference.

What makes you assume it's a bug and not our new, forever VR cursor from here on out?
