Hi - coming from the Harrier to the Hornet, the HUD on the Hornet seems a little less smooth ... as if the update rate is 20 FPS v the equivalent of 30 or more for the Harrier. Is there a reason for this - am I missing a setting?

Now: Water-cooled Ryzen 5800X + 32GB DDR 4 3200 RAM + EVGA 3090 FTW3 Ultra 24 GB + 2 x 1TB Corsair M.2 4900/4200 drive + 4K 40" monitor + TM HOTAS Warthog + TM TPR Pendular Rudder + TrackIR 5

Before (now back-up): Water-cooled i7 6700K @ 4.5GHz + 32GB DDR4 3200MHz + GTX 1080 8GB + 1TB M.2 1k drive & 250GB SSD drive 500MBps

yup, that's just how it is. Especially coming from the JF-17, it feels like you're flying on a Super Nintendo. You'd think they would have made the frame rate as high as possible to allow for more accurate, well, everything.

Real HUDs depending on their technology have limitations. Not only in the display's refresh rate but also in the rate at which the data is transmitted to the unit.

As far as the Hornet is concerned we are talking at least 2-3 decades old tech, the data rate limit of the avmux is modeled and that's probably what you're noticing.

 

 

And in a Rhino

 

 

Can't speak for other modules, you'll have to ask their developers if they're modeling things like that.

The HUD on our Hornets is driven by the DDI symbiology computer, which I think is unchanged from the very first Hornets? Which would mean the computer is from the 70s. 

 

It's way better than the F-14 HUD though; using the Tomcat's flight path marker to land feels like flying drunk.

Thanks guys - but I mean compared to the AV-8B in-game, whose HUD looks a lot smoother to my eyes.

Now: Water-cooled Ryzen 5800X + 32GB DDR 4 3200 RAM + EVGA 3090 FTW3 Ultra 24 GB + 2 x 1TB Corsair M.2 4900/4200 drive + 4K 40" monitor + TM HOTAS Warthog + TM TPR Pendular Rudder + TrackIR 5

It's not simulated in most DCS airplanes. In real life It's also not super smooth in the Harrier, although hard to tell if It's better in the Hornet or the same. Also various elements can have different refresh rates.

Fly the Tomcat for a few hours and then tell us the Hornet's HUD isn't smooth 🙂
