OK, let's see your virtual carrier ops pics.
I've used the mission editor in every sim I have with a boat to create piles of carrier ops missions, in IL2 1946, Jane's F/A-18 (night foul weather ops), FSX (defaults), X-Plane, Strike Fighters 2, and Lock On FC2.
Here's hoping the next DCS offering is the F/A-18C with the best carrier ops ever. Active deck traffic, IFLOLS, LSO, rolling, pitching deck, the works!
And Rise of Flight needs to cover the birth of Naval Aviation, maybe even get into those Glen Curtiss years on Keuka Lake!
Here's a couple of Fleet Air Arm pics from IL2 1946. That's a Supermarine Seafire F Mk.III launching and trapping aboard HMS Illustrious. The battlewagon trailing is HMS Duke of York.
All right virtual Naval Aviators, let's see what ya got!
