My DCS World auto-updated without a hitch to the latest version and I installed FC3 without any problems. Running fine.

My first impressions are man alive did FC2 come with way more single player content!

Really hope more missions and campaigns are coming when it's out of beta. Even if it's just getting whatever FC2 stuff they can moved over.

I mean, the F-15 looks awesome, I'm sure the campaign will be fun, but after that it's looking thin mission/campaign wise.

Anyhow, back to mapping all kinds of butttons!

Install DCS WORLD.... Install modules you want.... Call me confused but that is about the simplest method of distribution I can think of.

Then again, I witnessed the meltdown of friend as he struggled to grasp installing DCSW, then the BS2 and A-10 modules. I find it incredibly simple... but maybe that is just me.

People who don't do intercept profiles and take their A2A more seriously will probably not notice the differences, that is true. It is also true that underlying flight model has not changed (ie. going from SFM to AFM), but it was never meant to.

The new missile behavior--perhaps the coolest new feature--can easily be observed within World without buying FC3.


The new missile behaviour is part of the FC3 featureset in terms of what's funding the change. Yes, it is integrated into world, probably because ED doesn't want to do something inane like making your buy FC3 to get that feature.

ahh well, back to practicing on the hog for now!

if some one wanted to, they could make a ClickableData.LUA for the F-15C, the Arg Animations for all the Switches are in place kneeldown

Are you raising ur hand?

I would buy it- if they had the clickable cockpit. that's the only drawback for me.

Mizzy, that's two personal attacks against two different members in one thread. Please edit your posts, or I will edit them for you.

It is doable - even as a mod.

Can someone describe the complexity level to me. Startup, weapon systems etc. compared to the A10c what is it like.

What they said about the clickable F-15C cockpit above. Seems like making a 1000 mile trip and then deciding in the last 50 miles you're not up to it. What a waste. And honestly, is partial implementation of an AFM for the F-15C, particularly during takeoff or approach too much to ask after X number of years. The Su-25T, A-10C and P-51D demon are nearly the only planes really worth flying because you actually feel like you performed an authentic takeoff and landing cycle, or something close to it.

Su-25T is a FC-level simulation. FC3 aircraft are comparable in complexity.
