Meet and Greet


Recommended Posts

Many of us have that problem that friends, spouses and colleagues don't share this particular hobby. ;)

 

There are many virtual squadrons around and also many public servers that are open to anyone, most of them with TeamSpeak available as well, and lots of members who are always looking for like-minded people to add on Steam or Facebook or whatever in order to chat up a quick flight.

 

It would probably help if you wrote a little more about yourself, like where you're from and what your timezone is, which modules you prefer and so on. ;)

 

Yeah I've been looking both ingame and online for a squadron, but doesn't really get me closer to a cmmunity.

 

I'm almost 16 years old, but consider myself quite mature. I live in Denmark, so that's an hour infront of England, but time is not an issue in the weekends at least. I'm up for both serious flights as well as "just for fun" flights.

 

I do not own the NTTR map, just yet, so no DCS world 2 for now.

I currently own the following modules:

A-10c - which is my most flown module, with over 150 flight hours in singleplayer.

Flaming Cliffs 3 - have quite a lot of time in the F-15c

UH-1H - I'm getting better at it ;)

F-86F Sabre - fun aircraft

 

My hardware is:

TrackIR

Thrustmaster HOTAS joystick and throttle

and saitech pro flight rudderpeddels

 

If one of you have a interest in fly with me, or cantacting me, my steam username is lucasra00

Hi and welcome!

If you mean modules: I love the MiG-21, the M2000C, the A-10C and the Huey.

It really depends on taste, almost all released modules can be great fun IMO.

 

Hi thanks, I think I´ll get the M2000C. Really looking for a modern fighter-jet with AG capability. What about the community made mods? Any suggestions there?

Depends on what you're looking for. There is pretty much everything like user made cockpits, static structures, NVG (Night Vision Goggles) or terrain textures.

 

I will link a really good thread where some good mods are listed once I can find it :D

 

In this forum section you can find some modifications: http://forums.eagle.ru/forumdisplay.php?f=110

Good evening slaves of DCS.

 

45 year old Dane, that has been lurking around in the forum shadows for almost 2 years now, but figured it was about time to take the plunch and register to the forum. I've been rather on/off with flying in DCS - real life coming in between, so almost feels like I have been starting from scratch every time. Hopefully this time around, there wont be much off time.

 

Currently flying the Mirage, and eagerly awaiting the arrival of the F-5E (and F-14, Viggen, F-18, Spitty, Jug, you name it).

 

I'll be catching you guys online, where you can recognize me on the burning wreck dropping from the skies :).

- Jack of many DCS modules, master of none.

- Personal wishlist: F-15A, F-4S Phantom II, JAS 39A Gripen, SAAB 35 Draken, F-104 Starfighter, Panavia Tornado IDS.

Intro and Thanks!

 

Ive been lurking in this forum for years and decided to join in Feb. Figured I should do a intro.

 

But first,

 

1. Thank you to the entire ED team for making the simulator of my dreams! I never thought back in the Janes days that something as complex and realistic as DCS World would ever exist. And with VR? Unbelivable!

 

Your commitment to improving and expanding DCS is outstanding!!!!

I own every module as a show of support.(besides, they are all fun to fly:))

 

I send my highest regards and wishes for continued success!

 

2. Thanks as well to the forum admins, helpers and volunteers. Your professionalism, help, PATIENCE and understanding are to be commended. It may seem like a thankless job at times but be assured you efforts are appreciated.

 

Thank-You!

 

3.To the community at large, You guys are the most dedicated and passionate group I've ever come across. It is because of your efforts that this sim has been take to a new level.

The mods created, help and support given, and opinions offered have increased my enjoyment of DCS immensely.

 

Thank-You!!

 

About me,

Im a 60 year old (hence the 60 in sig) self employed auto repair shop owner specializing in european cars. Just repaired a 72 Rolls Royce Corniche convertible. So I like to fix things.

 

Been simming since 1985/6. Started with flight simulator on a apple 2e!

I think i bought almost EVERY sim produced since, good and bad!

A real simaholic.:D Still have my FLCS and TQS with the digital chip upgrade! Sadly, they do not work in win 7.

 

Thanks to the information, mods and apps on this forum, Ive updated my "sim pit" to include,

Warthog Hotas

Track ir5

 

(all below new since 2/16)

 

Cougar mfds on top lilliput usb monitors

Saitek bip, multi, switch, radio and tpm panels

4 Saitek FIPs

VRInsight Multi switch panel

DSD Flt1

2 home made button boxes using BBI-32s with encoders, rotary switches and 2/3 way toggles.

 

Soon to come a new Pc and Rift!:thumbup:

 

I haven't had so much FUN in years!

 

Thanks again to all, Gotta go, my Gazelle "Tasha" awaits.

 

PS,

Hey Wags, I STILL fly your missions in Janes F18.

Might be cool to Know the sim backgrounds of the ED team and forum team.

Perhaps another thread.

"Yeah, and though I work in the valley of Death, I will fear no Evil. For where there is one, there is always three. I preparest my aircraft to receive the Iron that will be delivered in the presence of my enemies. Thy ALCM and JDAM they comfort me. Power was given unto the aircrew to make peace upon the world by way of the sword. And when the call went out, Behold the "Sword of Stealth". And his name was Death. And Hell followed him. For the day of wrath has come and no mercy shall be given."

Hi DCS community, my name is Jim and I’m from Australia. I've been a long time lurker in these forums and just recently joined.

 

My childhood dream was to be a fighter pilot. At the age of 18 I applied to the Airforce for officer training to become a pilot but was rejected:(, ran home to mum and cried like a sissy girl:cry:.

 

11 years later I found DCS and finally stopped crying. My dream is now fulfilled. I would like to thank Eagle Dynamics for making this kid’s dream come true, keep up the good work. Will be catching you guys in the virtual skies soon enough.

Brand new to DCS and the A-10C having jumped in about a week ago.

 

I was a long-time Falcon addict but this is a whole different animal. Really enjoying the process of learning the systems, learning to fight and trying to tie it all together with a good joystick config. The depths to which the in-sim switchology goes is mind blowing.

 

I'm an AZ resident and my day job is aviation photography. Link to my site is in my profile if you'd care to peruse some eye candy.

 

Reading this forum and scouring the web voraciously for every nugget I can find. Maybe someday I'll be worthy of multiplayer, but I have a lot of work to do first.

 

Regards to all...
