DCS 2.5 (Caucus map)
Viggen
A-10C
Hornet
F-5
Persian Gulf Map.

I don't know what all people are on about, but I've been really really impressed with the quality of all of these!! I am also quite happy with the pace of Hornet development. Easily five years worth of entertainment here, especially since I'm a programmer and enjoy tinkering with the Mission Builder and Moose. I pray that after those 5 years I haven't become embittered like what I see on this site, but we will see.

Until then, I will be the token sweet summer child of the forum. Hornet is fantastic. It is so damn fun to fly. The maps are amazing. The cockpit is amazing. Graphics are amazing. VR is amazing. I get decent frames from a GTX 970.

I believe that fast jet sims are in a renaissance period and DCS is leading the charge.

I'm looking really really closely at Normandy and Spitfire because I want to create a "Time Pilot" campaign. Hornets and Warthogs blowing the hell out of Nazi's. TOTALLY REALISTIC!!!




slow clap.....good for you. hope the 'time pilot' campaign works out. however must I say that Chuck himself would turn over in his grave if ever a 'time pilot' campaign was ever a thing.

a 50-60 year old pilot who begins his time back in Normandy and progresses on to the A-10 at half a century of age and then retires in the F-18C in the 1st gulf war at 70 years of age? I think i'll pass on that like I have with most other 'realistic' campaigns.

I'd rather spend 70+ years perfecting fried bacon

Yes, you can't beat fried bacon

But if you added a time warp factor into the campaign you would not age and would be much more realistic that an 80 year old Hornet pilot

This one time I farted.....then followed through. I remember it quite clearly considering it was 3 decades ago. Compare that to the 'time warp' you suggest and I still would have preferred to have lived the dream rather than be the Emmett Brown of the campaign scenario as previously suggested.

My point still stands, realism can not be 'time warped; no matter what decade you fast forward to in this said campaign.

Realism is feeling the "force feed back" as one rocks back and forth on the bowl whilst pumping out a HOTAS warthog joystick with the associated 3rd party extensions. That alone can not give the consumer realism if that moment in time is skipped or fast forwarded though some kind of 'reality campaign' or 'time warped' campaign.

Didn't I see you in the movie Dead Pool? I think you were that angsty teenage goth-chick x-man mutant.

Really liked that character. Good on you.

So Time Pilot is a thing. I picked up the Normandy map and WWII assets. I am quite happy with the quality.

I've got a rough draft of the script and am polishing the first mission, which puts you in an F-5 going against Nazi's. Later will come an A-10, F-18, Viggen and finally the Spit going against Flankers, depending on how you do.

As much as I like the idea of 90 year olds flying Hornets, we'll save that for Golden Girls Squadron Tales. Think Final Countdown type scenario for this one.

So far been great fun to build and play! The Tiger is just so sweet. Flak peppered B-17 bombing raids, smoking 109's with winders, laying down cluster bombs on Panthers and Nazi soldiers.... flight sim life is good.

my response to you is pending a guarantee I won't cop another warning or have my reply removed. I will come back to this once Force responds that I won't have to sit out another month like I did when I last responded the poster instead of the post.

Force10, do I have that guarantee?? cause I would love to fire off a few sentences in response to this retard

And....like I predicted. A complete flop.

Not seeing anything remotely along the lines of "day one buy" like the tards who carry on here when ever a new flop is announced. Nor am I seeing that in this post....(bisher, sobek and the like don't count even if they do comment in the thread)

However, the time you spent building this fail of a campaign, may have been better spent on a campaign that is more constructive.....like any campaign that is not as you said..... 'time pilot'

Well teenagers do seem obsessed with bodily functions so perhaps your reference to passing gas and fecal matter brought on this response. I thought the description was too graphic as well smile

And then you make reference to 'retard', this seems to only reinforce the suggestion of teenage thought process

negative opinions have a place in any discussions about a game - people that care enough about a product and keep complaining usually keep playing it and if the game gets better end up buying more from that publisher, the problem is when you don't care either way as you gave up, don't mod or contribute to it and move on to other games, then all you have is silence and empty forums.

So, on a more positive, though completely off topic note then, Tom, where are we supposed to learn about updates you make to your DCS Mustang skins? You don't seem to be advertizing these neither here nor on LOF blog like you do with other planes. I found out about June-July updates only by accident, but that's not an optimal situation, neither is blind clicking through LOF downloads section every few weeks hoping that maybe something popped up.

The AG radar is what seperates this module from everything else in DCS. Once they get that done I'll buy it.
