FC3 - Worth it?

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

I do have A-10C and the learning curve is pretty steep. Not that I'm not willing to learn, but sometime, I only want to play a little more simple game.

 

I know that FC3 is much more easy, but does it worth it, since the SU-25T comes with DCS:World?

 

There is a couple of new planes that could be cool...

 

Also, is the download really only 218MB ? Seems little to me...

 

Thanks to everyone.

If you want something simpler, i would say: Yes.

The download is only 218MB because everything else sits already in DCS World.

Win10 Pro 64-bit, i7-4770K @ 4.5 GHz, Corsair H100i, AsRock Extreme4, ASUS Strix 1080Ti OC 11GB, 32 GB DDR3 G.Skill 2400. Monitors: LG 27GL850-B27 2560x1440 + Samsung SyncMaster 2443 1920x1200, HOTAS: Warthog with Virpil WarBRD base & hegykc MFG Crosswind modded pedals, TrackIR4, Oculus Rift S.

Personal Wish List: A6 Intruder, Vietnam theater, decent ATC module, better VR performance!

Thanks Folks,

 

I will give it a try I think...

 

One of the thing I was issue to learning in A10 Warthog is the MFCD control, it's complex to me ;)

 

But for sure. I am willing to learn, while having fun... 2 years ago, I did not even knew what "flap" and "trim" was, or ILS / VOR, etc, etc, etc...

 

Btw, does the HOTAS Warthhog is working great in FC3 ?

 

And what plane in FC3 would you try first? Maybe I should start with ground target instead of dogfight.

 

Thanks again for your input.

If you're looking for something a bit more laid back and casual by DCS standards then definitely get it. Plenty of planes and content that will keep you entertained for a while. Not to mention that you get to dogfight online against other fighters which is the best part of flaming cliffs 3.

Warthog HOTAS will work just fine in FC3. If you're looking for a bit more simpler CAS sorta thing, the A10A might be just up your alley. Otherwise, read up on the fighters and choose one to get really familiar with. The Su27 is nice and will give you lots of new toys to play with: HMS targeting, IRST passive detection and locking and a hell of a lot of missiles to play with and can even do strikes with rockets and bombs. THis will also set you up for flying the Su33 as it's so similar.

I finally bought it!

 

Wondering, I did not find any interactive missions (with key explain, etc) ....

 

I have downloaded the videos for Flight Shcool / A10A, but no mission where I can do as told.

 

Is that a separate download as well (can't find on DCS website).

 

Thanks alot guys!

I haven't seen any specific training missions, but if you take some notes from the videos and do instant action missions (or make your own basic mission), you can learn it very quickly.

simple key instruction's are simplified so to use Mav as such turn on key #7 for A10a or missles SU25, 25t, then move the reticle over the target hold button down 2 seconds launch..Theres is a PDF in there with the key bindings.

It is still in beta.

Purchases are pre-orders with beta access as a perk.

Every single product of ED is worth every single penny! I don't own all of the products but I highly endorse the rest.

 

Even though there are "better" "games" this isn't a game, its a simulator that takes time to learn and since it takes more than a brain to produces its not going to be flawless. I believe ED is going beyond what other "games" have out there! Other "games" are like movies, you go see a movie and its over with, even though you might seen that movie more than once, you still get the same results with little to no effort. That might be a not so good analogy but I hope you understand my point.

 

FC3 worth the money, there are hiccups(all other "games" have them") currently but its being worked out. I see in the future, this company will endure and only increase popularity.

 

Here's my opinion in what you might see in the future. ED DCS's can bring forth all of the aspects of "gaming online shooters, vehicular combat, infantry operations, aerial assaults, ground/air support, building bases/scenarios, improved graphics, more realism, battlefield virtual reality brought to you in your arm chair :D, dynamics in all aspects, and much much more.

When it was first released (early beta), it was barely worth the price IMO. Now? With additional features, 6DOF cockpits, Advanced Missile Models etc..it noticably stands out from the older FC1/FC2 series. So, yes, now it's definatelly worth it. :)

Absolutely worth it ... I haven't played it as much as I'd like to, but the missiles modelling is better (and set to improve), the 6DOF and the general look is much improved. Plus its still in beta so things will only get better :)

 

Only down side is no more Crimea.
