Now that I finally have a HOTAS and the Tobii is working, DCS is a totally different animal. Much more enjoyable and immersive. I did a group flight with about a dozen folks going after the Kutzenov and it was a ton of fun. First in the F-15C and then in a MIG-29.
- How do people navigate?
Folks told me just to use F10, but is there a way to set my own waypoints and use that method?
- Why did my radar only sometimes work?
I’ve noticed in training that sometimes contacts come in loud and clear on the radar and I can lock them up. Other times I see a bomber, can get a visual on the contrail, and the radar screen is clear.
- How do you keep spatially oriented?
Maybe this is just a challenge to get used to, but when moving about, the adrenaline flowing, missiles coming in, how does one retain some spatial sense of where they are? (See #1)
- What’s a good “starter” campaign?
I’d like some continuity and also a set of tasks that is progressively more difficult. A good deal of content seems to assume a higher level of familiarity than I have.
