Possible to select a specific waypoint??


Recommended Posts

Hi, in the hornet if i want to select waypoint 27 is there a way to jump to that directly like in the harrier or f16? At the moment i am just mashing the wp inc button till i get there, just feels cumbersome. Cheers.

This would be useful especially with markpoints. I wonder why the bug wouldn't have that feature?

Place waypoint 27 in a WPSEQ, box that WPSEQ, then the next actuation of the waypoint increment will jump to it (e.g. 0-1-2-27, or 0-27, or just 27 by itself).

I also would like to have that feature, however, when I looked through the Hornet's NATOPS manual, I didn't see any mentioning of it. Probably it wasn't implemented for whatever reason, which seems odd but yet that's the way it is.

I enjoy single pass employment of multiple GPS guided munitions using TOO with a series of waypoints or mark points. I’ve found that mapping DDI keys to my HOTAS allows me to quickly cycle through them. Realistic? No. Convenient? Yes.

I'd argue it's more realistic than jumping to the mouse. Sure it's faster than IRL, but the standard DCS way is slower.

On the matter of realism; I'm happy to be corrected here, but I'm pretty sure that irl missions do not have so many waypoints to begin with 😅

For me, it would be more about mark points. If I end up with all 9 of them in my database, I'd like to be able to put some sort of ID's on them (or I could use my kneeboard... in VR), to know what's what later on and be able to quickly punch them in as steerpoints. I suspect then between the map slew features and the CAS page there 'might' be something there.  Perhaps I'm complicating this a little. So far this hasn't created any problems for me, just a slight nuisance in some situations.

At least the kneeboard variant is possible. You need Voice Attack and the VAICOM plugin with interactive kneeboard license. This is really awesome for VR users. The interactive kneeboard directly integrates into the DCS kneeboard and has a dictate mode. I used it yesterday to write down some coordinates from the F10 map and add them as target coordinates for my GBU-38s in PP mode. Dropped all 4 at once and hit. 🙂
