I have just this one :smiley:

Few more from today and I apologize that I did not get shots of everyone over the weekend. During the times that I was actually flying I was so focused on not screwing up that I screwed up and didn’t get any screenshots. I’m lookin’ at you M-2000C INS alignment when I didn’t need it and should have been in the air killing M-G-23’s.


@Bogusheadbox lookin’ fine.


Me in the M-2000C skin that @komemiute made for me. I think that ED changed the ways that unit numbers are displayed, hence the artifact.


Maybe @Maclean has an ‘illegal’ loadout? Meh. It’s Beta!


And here is @Maclean killing the MiG-23 that I should have been killing.


After that I decided to get slow and bring an A-10C to the fight. At this point all of the Red Air had been taken care of so I was fairly safe … except when I went heads down and Betty started suggesting I pull up. She was right.


Back on @Tankerwade’s server running @near_blind’s mission. Sticking with the A-10C to see if I could help AV-8B’s pick up the air defense assets imbedded with the convoys.


Pretty picture but my RWR was overheating with all the activity somewhere up there is a nasty fight that will come haunt me.


Turning to target with @Bogusheadbox on my wing.


Can’t wait for DCS World 2.5 and the improved Georgia map. I am really looking forward to that.


Over the shoulder shot towards @Bogusheadbox


Shortly after entering the target area my RWR kicks into high gear. Missile launch warnings every 5 seconds or so. Eventually the two Su-30s would get me as I just did not have the smash to get away, or even challenge them really. The A-10C is a nice platform … as long as there are no threats in the AO. Died shortly after this shot.


At this point Blue Air had swept the area and there was an AI taxi crisis going on at Senaki. Since I was able to get into the AO without any challenges, @Bogusheadbox had managed to launch on a convoy. Not this one. This one was the front convoy and I would eventually backtrack along the road to …


Oh my. This beautiful mess. @Bogusheadbox had managed to smash the lead guy tank in the second convoy and it happened to occur on a bridge. The AI couldn’t get past the wreck. The right cross hair line is covering the lone AI trying it’s best to get across. I had entered into Warthog heaven.


Out of Mavericks, switching to GBU-12’s.


This was the best. 3 enemy units almost on top of each other. 1 GBU killed all three :-).


Sorry for the A-10C love-fest but it is not often that you get the perfect circumstances for the Warthog to shine. If it had been day, or I had not felt that I was pushing my luck, there would have been a few guns passes. At least until the next convoy with it’s AA missile team would have shown up and ruined my fun.

Now that the png issue is sorted!

This fly in has been some great fun. Thanks to everyone who has helped me learn some of the systems on the Harrier.

From Saturday night.


@Bogusheadbox approaching behind me


@near_blind being probed…


#32

The two most incompetent Su-30 crews I’ve ever seen on their way to ruin @Bogusheadbox and @Fridge’s day.

@Deadmeat taxiing forward

@Klarsnow and I pretending to retake Las Malvinas

@Maclean insisting upon booping me >:-|


#33

A few shots from this afternoon


@Maclean looking sinister


I think this was @NEVO in the M2K?


Still looking good after finding some AAA


Landings are still 50/50


#34

Not me, definitely someone else :slight_smile: I was in A10A & Su25


#35

Thanks for the great pics, @near_blind. I can safely speak for the Black Veal Squadron when I say that we had a great time the other night.


#36

Not to hijack the thread- but I was thinking.
You’re not the first user to report this…

I redownloaded the skin from the link I provided and tested it it was working fine.
So, I know I updated the skins after RazBam Modified something in the Mirage Texturing process and I think I warned people that skin had a problem and I corrected them.

Keyword here is I THINK I did it.
:confused:

I’m sorry if this slipped under the proverbial radar- but could anyone I did a Mirage 2000 texture for, redownload and try them to see if the problem persist?

#38

I’m really loving the Hog/Harrier shots.

Sorry to have missed the fun. RL (kids/work/Christmas light troubleshooting) jumped on me in a big way yesterday.


#39

I loved the little flying I managed- and I’m the same time I’m sorry for the trouble I inflicted on anyone.

I’m unusually aware of my lack of self confidence and somehow I always manage to be overly awkward and incapable.
This time was due to a mix of misfortune (lost my WArthog stick so flying the A10c - my favourite airframe- was impossible) and inattention (didn’t realize people were flying with 1.5.8 I didn’t download in time).

Somehow I both look very much forward to some co-op online gaming and dread the moment it will arrive.

I’m working on it.

EDIT: somehow the best part was listening to everyone having fun. :slight_smile: Thank you all.

[laughs evily]


#41

Hey @Maclean, If @Troll, @Fridge and @BeachAV8R don’t find out about it, I’ll add the M word to the swear filter. [laughs in a corrupt way]


#42

There’s a video that provides context to this, but @Maclean’ll have to find the link for it.

#44

Talking of which - @Andrew116, I edited your posts to convert the images to jpgs, it was killing us in terms of the image sizes in MBs. Sorry about the confusion. I’ve reverted the setting that allowed the corrupted DCS screenshot PNGs, so until that is fixed by ED then we’ll need to only allow JPGs from that screenshot mechanism from DCS.
