Sweet news Heatblur! Very much appreciate your work and looking forward to both LANTIRN and the Forrestal. All meetings and calls for the week of 10/18 clear.

Here’s hoping VAICOM is paying attention and also has a clear schedule :smiley: .

Didn’t the F-14 already have the pod? Or is this the JESTER commands.

Just the JESTER commands. We already have the pod, but without a human RIO we can’t use it.

I wonder what time the update will drop. Not seeing it so far.

I’m not complaining about it but the irritation of having spent over 23 hours downloading dcs to my new machine at 3mb/s only to have a new update drop instantly is making me giggle on the edge of hysteria

(I solved the lack of deck crew by using cows, plus handy for scale. Moo!)

Shouldn’t be too hard to drop a few crew on her, but a shame that she isn’t SC compatible. There must have been a show-stopper.

It’s a really nice addition. Also, there are 4 deck vehicles:

  • Added MD-3 Mule (Early) carrier tow/huffer.
  • Added HS-60 Forklift (Early) small aircraft carrier forklift.
  • Added CV-59 Large Forklift.
  • Added NS-60 Deck Tilly Crane .

I also miss the deck crew, I hope they’ll be able to figure out something in the future.
And I’m surprise how much smaller it is compared to the Nimitz class. I guess they’re called super carrier for a reason.
It even has a baby deflector :stuck_out_tongue:

Someone needs to start a petition to make the Forrestal Supercarrier-Compatible.

Ideally, a high profile community member, respected by the devs and who has a high sympathy capital among the community.
hmmmm, where are we going to find someone like that :thinking: :smiley:

From Heatblur facebook page:

Know that we hear you all regarding deck crew and will continue working on options for an immersive deck environment for our Forrestal! :brain:

Maybe it will be even better than the DCS Super Carrier…?
