  1. VFA-64...you must be doing the Raven One campaign!
  2. @Krycztij part of it may be the data compression on the pics and in the videos, but you have to see the clouds in DCS to believe them. I didn't believe the hype train either until I actually did tanking in a Tomcat near a cloud layer. After I finished tanking I did some cloud surfing and ooh boy! 😲
  3. Sort of. 50 is the idle setting, and 100% is MIL. 101-140 is variable afterburner.
  4. Hi Threepio! Great to see you around these parts. I do remember you from F4AF; I played that one a ton, and some of my fondest flight sim memories are with that version of Falcon.
  5. Only possible if you turn off an engine or it gets shot up.
  6. Hi @Atlantic, and welcome to the forum. We don't play TAW as much as we used to (we've since shifted to flying DCS), and I've retired from TAW modding after 2.30, but there is still interest on the forum for people to do TAW and EF2000 multiplayer. For AARs (and other TAW related stuff), I recommend TAW Wiki | Fandom in general and There I Was... - A Collection of After Action Reports | TAW Wiki | Fandom in particular.
  7. The NVG utility was made using a game cheat engine, so it does things like substitute values in existing registers. This is a known false positive outlined in the documentation. It is possible to play TAW without the NVG tool, and if you are uncomfortable with it you can uncheck the "Launch NVG Tool with Menu" checkbox on the Configuration screen of the launcher. That is the reason the checkbox exists to begin with.
  8. Good to hear, though I figure he's hoarding the bunker to himself.
  9. Fellas, I should have an integrated profile by the end of the year that will do EF2000, TAW, and other legacy sims (to be added later). It will use the CTS interface currently used for DCS World.
  10. Now that Rohan housing is live, it appears that the Mead Halls are individual and not kinship housing. As such, I'm taking the Mead Halls out of contention, so the question is whether we should do Gondor (Belfalas) and not pay upkeep. There are plenty of kin houses available (including one in my Belfalas neighborhood), and with Rohan housing the craze I imagine they will stay available. The Gondor Kin house is 36 writs or 736 coins (i believe). I can wait for a sale on either (just missed the writ sale unfortunately, but I didn't know what the pricing for Rohan would be) then ge
  11. It's probably a matter of orders. Without hearing their side of the radio, we won't know for sure. However, here's what we do know: the Tomcats tried three times to offset their heading so that they would not be on an intercept course. Each time the MiGs adjusted course as if to intercept. If the Tomcat RWR wasn't going crazy, they were being vectored by GCI (which was also Soviet doctrine at the time, which is also what countries that purchased Soviet hardware usually followed as well). Perhaps the Libyan brass didn't think the USN would open fire, or perhaps they didn't care
  12. Assuming you're talking about TAW, AI really is that bad when dropping dumb bombs. When there's a strike package, I'll either give them smart weapons or have the F-22 take the strike itself.
  13. Ummm, nobody said anything about DCS not modeling this. All talk has been about TAW. Falcon simulates a FBW aircraft, so any of this is likely abstracted with the FCS model (not to mention the game is over 20 years old). DCS does model weight imbalance and torque, among other things. I wasn't a physics major, so I don't intuitively understand the statics and dynamics of which you describe, but I do know that asymmetric loads are modeled, including the CG shift if (for instance) fuel is taken from one tank and not another. You can try this with the F-5, P-47, and P-51 (or even t
  14. It's been a while since I posted here, but rest assured, the Wednesday and Saturday fly-ins are still happening. The Black Veal Squadron still flies in partnership with the 75th VFS (which is now part of the Virtual Armed Forces, along with the VFA-136 Knighthawks and 111th VFS Aces), and we still fly what we want to fly, but we've recently flown more in the F-14 and F-18. I'm partial to the Tomcat, and I'm willing to fly RIO with a pilot or train someone in the RIO seat. PM me if you're interested and I'll send you an invite to our Discord.
  15. Without source code, slim to none. And Slim is leaving the building...
