LCD's will be delayed sadly. 

But....coming along slowly but surely.  I really need that Warthog to come back in.

Looks great!

Small tip: if you suffer from loss of TrackIR signal try moving the sensor to the edge of your screen, more in line with the side of your head.
Especially when looking at big cross angles down or up the unit gets sensitive.
Moving the sensor to a spot where the shape of your head will cause the least interference.

Yeah man, lots of exciting stuff!

Stating a timeframe and calling their crew ‘well organized’ is risky, though, considering their past endeavors! :D

But jokes aside, I am looking forward to most stuff in that newsletter!  :bd:

I’ll go out on a limb and predict that this will be a pretty cool
sim one day. Lol

On a serious note, the time has come for me to update the 5.5 year old rig if I intend to keep this up. I still use an HDD and an SDD is really a must if you don’t want stuttering. With new clouds and additional AI weather, flight and combat algorithms....I think my computers time is at an end. It has come to the point that my computer is no longer a “porn machine” or a thing I play games on. It is now- solely- a platform for DCS and I wonder if I will ever have an interest in playing anything else again. Besides, the phone is much better for porn

I don't really get much loss with my setup but I'll try that notwithstanding.

MAC is back in this round of announcements! Here's hoping.

Flight sims have come such a long way over the years...there was a time when I couldn't even dream that a machine would be able to do this from the comfort of my home.

I thought that was real for a second, damn.

DCS is making it awfully hard for me to justify playing BMS/Falcon 4.0 - as much as I love the dynamic campaign, I may finally have to give this one a go.

Looks like new clouds will be coming in March.



Another free fly event launched together with a lunar sale. A bunch of modules are 50% off with others 30%.

Oh man, that is absolutely fantastic!  I've always thought the A-6 is a bad-ass plane.

I may finally pick up the F-14.

Are you going to drive?  I don't have my cockpit set up so I'm pretty much resigned to the back seat for now.
