Meet and Greet


Recommended Posts

You made a good choice Angel. In DCS you also get the Su25t and P51t for FREE!
Hello,snacko.Yes,you do get those free planes from what i've seen on this website.I've been particularly interested in the P-51 Mustang since there aren't many combat flightsims that use it.I'm still waiting for EDGE to be released before i get a new computer.

Still deciding on which module to get, thinking about the A-10 though.

 

Can't go wrong with it, I love the Hog! Easy to fly, hard to master. The systems modeling is incredible. Plus, who wouldn't want a seven barreled 30mm gun with 1150 rounds at the office? :lol:

 

Be aware, though, that sooner or later the Hog will practically force you to sell your soul or your firstborn just so you can get the TM Warthog. :D

Agreed, but I advise selling your soul as the wife will be less likely to notice. ;)

Good point. Then again, depending on the spouse in question, it might also be valid to sell the wife, seeing as the soul would be less likely to notice. :lol:

Hello all,

I am a retired US Navy Commander who flew the A-7E Corsair II off the USS Kitty Hawk in the Pacific. I also flew the C-12 (King Air 200) in the Reserves. I am now in the IT industry, but still teach flying part-time in Light Sports near the Chesapeake Bay. I use my home flight sim to keep me from getting rusty when not flying much. I mainly used FSX and X-Plane up until now. I am excited to get into DCS, because I get to blow things up again.

 

I have an ASUS Gaming Laptop with i7 Haswell and a GTX-770M. I have TrackIR, Saitek X-52 Pro and rudders. In addition to the laptop I have a Matrox TH2G with Three 24" monitors.

 

I'm starting out with the DCS P-51D because it has been my dream to fly one and I think this is the closest I can get. My only frustration has been trying to adjust the Field of View. With my TH2G I get wide screen, but it is too wide. A FOV of over 220 degrees is too much. Can't find a solution yet.

Howdy :)

Casey here. I played Gunship and 688 Attack Sub obsessively as a kid. We even had a small after school group that played Gunship in the lab. Single player, but it was fun keeping track of promotions or the end of careers due to permadeath.

 

Only played a few other flight sims over the years, but now it's time to come back to them with a vengeance. If my connection isn't too terrible for online play looking forward to flying online with folks.

Hello everyone.

 

I just wanted to introduce myself to this nice community. I have been flying virtual planes for more than 5 years now, I started playing IL2- 1946 and still do, but now I mostly fly the modern era jets in DCS.

 

Flying is fantastic, but add a few missiles and explosions and it becomes addictive

A good time

 

This is my first post ever. I'm Rick aka. "Meanmutha". Hello everyone. I have been flying the A10C and some P51 for about a year now. I figured I'd read and get some experience before I asked dumb questions, I only have one right now.

I want to thank everyone for the informative posts, I have learned a lot since my Fighter Ace days. Those of you who have put the hours in to produce some really cool mods deserve extra praise. Third party developers have done a great job. Sith and his buddy helping me out a bit, appreciated. Eagle for producing it all...It's a good time.

So when is 2 gonna happen?:megalol::lol: JK...

Hello all,

I am a retired US Navy Commander who flew the A-7E Corsair II off the USS Kitty Hawk in the Pacific.

 

welcome sir,

may i ask, if you would give us some insight on carrierlandings and stuff when the DCS:F/A-18C gets released someday?

 

would be honoured to learn those things or get some hints from someone who actualy did those things!

 

regards,

RR

Hello,

this is my first post on the DCS World form's.

In anticipation of the upcoming edge 2 release, I've just purchased my first module, the time tested Black Shark 2 (on Summer sale), but, I'm not going to fly it just yet, more on that later.

 

I'm not new to DCS World per say, and certainly not new to flight simulations. I've been following DCS world since the early days of it's inception. Still have LOCK ON, Modern Air Combat on this computer. And of course, the famous IL-2 1946, modded to HSFX7 and along with many enhancements from the folks over at SAS. And then there's the new IL-2 Sturmovik BOM, sitting here on my hard-drive, also waiting for it's first flight. So you may ask, as with as the Black Shark 2, "waiting for for it's first flight"? Read on.

 

Well, two major events, actually could maybe be considered 3 events now, I've been waiting for a very long time with much anticipation, to what could be called, I suppose the next generation of flight simulations. One is the much anticipated release of of DCS World 2 or Edge 2 as it's called. Each video or statement in which Wags, Chizh or ED release are gone over and over like CNN does of a presidential statement, for whatever subtle clues or meanings it may have may not have. Secondly, is finally the development of actually "practical" consumer virtual reality, or as we have come to know as the Rift and Vive, to finally be able put our heads in the game (or cockpit). Then Thirdly, which came about unexpectedly, and for this genre in short time has been the new IL-2 BOS/BOM. But in all, Edge 2 combined with Rift/Vive, is really what has many of us on the "edge" of a huge step up in the development of the next generation of flight simulations, for the immersive feeling of actually being in the realistic cockpit and the flying of our favorite mount(s).

 

So, in answer to the question, "waiting for the first flight", this system I'm currently on, typing this endless first post for a DCS forums Chit Chat introduction, while it works very well for the old faithful LOMAC and IL-2 1946, just simply won't cut it for this next upcoming generation of flight simulation experience. So, in the next few months I'll be planing and building a new upper end system. But even then I'll wait to fire up DSC World, for my first new generation of flight with the Vive, or Rift, so myself, friends and family, will get the awesome experience of finally having the immersive feeling of the head in the cockpit and aircraft, flying in an era, and/or place in which we could only dream of otherwise for the first time. That should be worth the waiting?

 

Looking forward to it!!

Hey guys, thought i'd put a post here.

 

Been playing DCS since before World was released, first module was A-10C, then on to blackshark 2, P-51D, UH-1 and I just got MIG-21 yesterday.

 

Can't say i'm actually any good, but I certainly enjoy it. Looking forward to checking out some online missions!

Hello,

 

Another new guy :)

 

What an amazing product, developers and community.

 

I've been lurking for about 2 months, have snapped up quite a few modules in the recent sales, just got another 2 today and I must say that DCS World has blown me away!

 

Thank you :D

I thought it couldn't hurt to hop in and say a short hello. :)

I've been simming for 25 years now. At least if you can call stuff like Wings and the old stuff from Microprose sims, comparing to today's standards.;)

I had Lock On and BS, but skipped the A-10 for a while because I feared the complexity. But since the Mustang was released, I purchased every single Module.

I also use CloD,BoS,RoF, Wings over Flanders Fields and an extremely modified FSX.

90% of my PC time is reserved for simming. DCS should roughly occupy 40% of my simming time. 25% Bos, RoF,CloD and FSX 10% and 5% WoFF.

But this can always change.

Setup is Track IR,Hotas Warthog,MFG Crosswind Pedals and a custom made Panel with 20 buttons, 10 switches and 3 poties (rheostats).

Hello, fellow Simmers!

 

I've been a fan of simulation "games" ever since they existed! I am old enough to remember playing on the original Nintendo "aka Famicom" and the Atari games as a kid, and when I got a little older I was introduced to one of the original Microsoft Flight Simulators. From that point on I WAS HOOKED!

 

I still have the original boxed DVD Black Shark in my desk. Unfortunately as much as I am a fan of computer games I didn't have much money at that time so my computer had a hard time running the program. About a year and a half ago I finally said F*** it and splurged on a halfway descent desktop.

 

O M G!!

 

I finally know what I was missing out on. So here I am. Cheers.
