Does anyone here have issues flying a certain DCS aircraft enough to really feel proficient in said aircraft, before being tugged away by something equally as sexy? Case in point, I’ve been trying to spend most of my time in the F-15C lately hoping that the familiarity with some of the systems and procedures would cut down on the F/A-18 learning curve. Then last night, I somehow corrupted my TM Warthog profile for the F-15C. Not wanting to spend a few hours recreating the darn thing (and realizing that I need to rethink my backup strategy), I decided to try on the Mirage 2000 for size. Wow, is that a horny little beast. Calming down, I realize that there are a bunch of new systems and processes to learn, not to mention a French labeled pit. And about that HOTAS profile, yes, get cracking on a new one. Anyone feel like they need a 30 hour day?
Back to Hornet prep, many think that the Eagle is the most arcade of DCS offerings and won’t bother with it’s non clickable pit. True. Perhaps the A-10C with its more developed RWR and CAS protocols really might not be too far from the A in F/A-18. Or does one pursue the new little hottie on the block, Miss Mirage?
