FC3 and updates


Recommended Posts

Just like installing your A-10C, Ka-50 it's just another module that gets installed straight in :)

Good.

 

What is the current update version incidentally? I'm on 1.2.4.12913.

One final question before I make my mind up.

 

Does it come with training missions like A-10C?

 

*Where is the official list of features?

 

On the front page of the official website. :doh:

About the training. They did not bother to update the training missions to the current version of DCS so they posted them as videos instead.

Find them here:

Oh dear. I was almost going to buy it too.

 

It's not really such a big issue as the cockpits are not interactive anyway.

i386DX40@42 MHz w/i387 CP, 4 MB RAM (8*512 kB), Trident 8900C 1 MB w/16-bit RAMDAC ISA, Quantum 340 MB UDMA33, SB 16, DOS 6.22 w/QEMM + Win3.11CE, Quickshot 1btn 2axis, Numpad as hat. 2 FPH on a good day, 1 FPH avg.

 

DISCLAIMER: My posts are still absolutely useless. Just finding excuses not to learn the F-14 (HB's Swansong?).

 

Annoyed by my posts? Please consider donating. Once the target sum is reached, I'll be off to somewhere nice I promise not to post from. I'd buy that for a dollar!

I was kind of sold on the A-10C package. If only all DCS packages were dealt that way I think the product would be doing far better.

 

ED has stated that the simpler FC series is the more successful of the two in general. Not everyone wants to click every single button in the cockpit.

I believe the OP is referring to the lack of interactive training missions.

You also have to remember that the learning curve for the Flaming Cliffs aircraft is nowhere near as steep as for A-10C. You could pick up most of what you need to know from just watching the videos and referencing the manual or best of all, coming on to the forums.:smilewink: I highly enjoy FC3 and will like it even more when the AFMs come out.

 

Kon.
