  1. Eventually they will be the future for the majority.. But, I think there are some out there that will never be able to take advantage of the HMD due to the potential sea sickness incurred due to many factors, most notably lag.

    DCS sale

    As much as I love DCS.. and supporting flight sims.. I am going to hold off until I see the new graphics engine.. If it fixes the viewing of aircraft at a distance.. Ill buy
  3. ROTFL Enh, I don't mind that at all.. That is the way 1C did it with the original IL2 and that worked out well for both the developer and the users.. it is either that or pay for DLC.. the dev has to make $ one way or another
  4. Agreed 100% And based on what others have said, seems War Thunder has a more realistic feel than World of XXXX Again Agreed 100% Funny you should mention ARMA.. I was just thinking how much more I like War Thunder over that WWII ARMA 1944 thing they did awhile back, where they licenced the ARMA II engine. As I have been playing tanks, I have been thinking how cool it would be to have real infantry running round.. You know the plan on doing it based on the detail of the building's interiors that are already in the game.. Also, I have a feeling that one of these days War Thunder is going to enalbe a cockpit/interior view of the tanks.. In that the art work is allrady done, thus I suspect the tanks cockpits will be in place before the bomber cockpits Which means more $ for Ganiji and thus they will be able to hiar more people to address existing and future issues
  5. Well driving a real T-72 is fun.. But.. I'm just too big to sit inside it and drive it for more than a few mins.. Russian tanks are designed for migets
  6. Well.. I don't have as much free time as some have.. Work is crazy busy what with the all the T72 tanks we are instrumenting.. Thus, I didn't have time to play the game long enough to unlock the tanks I wanted to play and get the automatic updates of each tank.. But they do provide a way to buy the pay for unlocks and updates.. So, that is what I did.. Basically I have unlocked and upgraded all of the US tanks to the best options with the best crews.. It is allot of fun! On that note, I have only unlocked a few of the aircraft, the P51, P47, and P38.. I don't think I am going to spend the $ to unlock all the planes I think I give the playing it to unlock it a try. In that there is some sense of reward there that I am short circuiting by just paying for it.
  7. Me too.. My interest in planes ends around 1967.. Modern jet stuff just does not grab me like WWI, WWII, KOREA.. If I had to sum it up, I prefer gun kills over BVR missile stuff.. Some of the early short range KOREAN missile stuff is fin though.. As for War Thunder tanks.. I am having so much fun.. That and I am having flash backs to the 70s we me and a fried would by the TAMIA tanks that had electric motors in them, we would dig up my mothers flower garden and drive the tanks around, buld little towns film them with 8mm cameras.. I hear that is how Speilberg got this start too! I still have that film, I need to find a place to convert it to mpg or something SOP! Hey, is nash playing warships? I was wondering if War Thunder is going to add ships, I think they are planing on it, just have not done it yet. Seems World of XXX and War Thunder are going for the same market.. A full world battle field.. the Holy Grail of simming, something that has been talked about since the early days of flight simming back in the 90s and looks like it might finally happen. Just a question of which one will end up on top.. Good days for us simmers what with all the selection and competition out there
  8. Geee.. that is hard to say, I have been buying and flying ED stuff for a long time now.. Starting with the first LockOn some 10 or so years ago? That and if I remember correctly ED was also part of the old SSI Su27 stuff so if you count that, it would be more hours that I care to think of.. On that note, I bought and flown every thing ED makes for DCS world, except for the 109 and MiG15.. I decided I would wait for the new EDGE graphics before spending any more money. Better late than never Actually I have spent over $1K on War Thunder.. Some of the best gaming money I have spent in a long time.. Last time I spent that much on a game was back in the early 90s when I had a bill for playing Air Warrior on month that was over $1K, at that time it was not hard to do in light of they charged $12/hr to play Air Warrior. As for me trying to rationalize, you could not be more wrong if you tried! But I can understand what wit you being so upset about me pointing out that no one has provided anything thus far that would show let alone prove that the DCS or BoS flight modelling is better than War Thunders. Talk about rationalizing! Hardly Correct! I never said I would provide it, I simply pointed out that no one has PROVIDED anything thus far that would show let alone prove that the DCS or BoS flight modelling is better than War Thunders I am not arguing with anyone, granted some are upset with me for pointing out that no one has provided anything thus far that would show let alone prove that the DCS or BoS flight modelling is better than War Thunders, but someone being upset about that should not be equated with arguing. As for no gain, actully the gain here is that I think I have make my point clear, that being that no one has provided anything thus far that would show let alone prove that the DCS or BoS flight modelling is better than War Thunders. Based on that reply, it is clear to me that you are confused in thinking that I said I was going to prove the War Thunder FM was better than the BoS FM.. Know that I never did, I simply pointed out that no one has provided anything thus far that would show let alone prove that the DCS or BoS flight modelling is better than War Thunders. True I disagree with anyone who claims that someone has provided something thus far that would show and prove that the DCS or BoS flight modelling is better than War Thunders. Because the simple truth is that no one has.. Keeping in mind that my focus is on the 6DOF FM wrt performance values and that finding one bug with a ZERO in War Thunder does NOT prove the 6DOF FM is providing far worse performance values than another flight sim. Well we will have to agree to disagree on that.. Because the inital point was to show that War Thunder provides that 1C/77 does when it comes to thier FM. Hence the link in my first post. Which lead to the discussion that of which FM was better, as in some said who cares if War Thunder tells us more about how they do it if their FM is not as good as BoS. At which point I simply pointed out that no one has provided anything thus far that would show let alone prove that the DCS or BoS flight modelling is better than War Thunders. A TRUTH that clearly has upset alot of people, but still the truth. Promise? Well one thing your forgetting bright eyes, it takes two to argue, so, take a look in the mirror and take note of half the problem here wrt to arguing.. On that note, you and yours are the ones that feel the need to argue.. If I have said it once I have said it a dozens times, we will have to agree to disagree.. But you and yours can not accept someone else having a point of view that differs from yours.. So now, ask yourself, who are the ones arguing here? PS feel free to PM your apology to me if your not up to the task of doing it in public.
  9. That is a good point that I missed, thanks for pointing that out! S!
  10. Correct.. To say one flight sim does a better job than another flight sim, you would have to do the same test of the same plane in both sims and than compare the results to the agreed upon real world data. Which ever one comes closer to the real world data is the flight sim that does a better job and hence could be said to be better than the other sim, with regards to that 'one thing' tested Disagree Actually it is my case/point The point you keep missing here is No one has provided anything thus far that would show let alone prove that the DCS or BoS flight modeling is better than War Thunders Your upset, I realize that, so please forgive me if I have offended you buy pointing out no one has provided anything that shows your your favorite flight sim is better than any other flight sim
  11. I bought it, but, to be honest, modern tanks don't do it for me like WWII era tanks
  12. Clearly Says who? That is your opinion and your welcome to it, just know that I dont agree with it. And the fact that you think I have to go do the other half of the test (ie the War Thunder half) only proves what I have been stating from the start, i.e. No one has provided anything thus far that would show let alone prove that the DCS or BoS flight modeling is better than War Thunders Hope that helps! Sharpe, you seem to under the false impression that you have some sort of control over me.. Know that you don't The fact that you think I have to go do the other half of the test (ie the War Thunder half) only proves what I have been stating from the start, i.e. No one has provided anything thus far that would show let alone prove that the DCS or BoS flight modeling is better than War Thunders Hope that helps!
  13. Sharp You seem to be under the false impression that this is your forum and that you have some sort say and or control over what and when I post.. As far as I know that is not the case Therefore I will continue to post on the subject without your prior permission and or consent.. Now clearly you are upset with what I am saying, such that you feel the need to lash out.. In light of that, may I suggest you remove yourself from the conversation if you find that you can not control your emotions? Keeping in mind that no one is holding a gun to your head forcing you to read my post. Thanks in advance! PS my statement, i.e. No one has provided anything thus far that would show let alone prove that the DCS or BoS flight modeling is better than War Thunders Still stands in that the DCS test is only half of what is needed.. Someone would have to do the equivalent War Thunder test.. That and provide enough info on the test such that it could be repeated by others, i.e. meet the scientific method of repeatability.. Which is my point from the get go Hope that helps!
  14. One could do that test with War Thunder, in that War Thunder provides a method to log data during flight.. But until BoS provides a way to log data during flight, as 1C did in IL-2 with DeviceLink, or as 1C did in CoD with C# such a test would be very Very Very hard to log the flight data.. Sort of videoing the entire flight and manually writing down the data in a post process fashion.. And until than no one can say with any certainty how well the planes are matching the real world data. Just too many potential sim pilot errors can be made during testing that can corrupt the results. This statement is based on the hundreds of test logs I have reviewed over the past 10+ from several different flight sim. I found that most of the errors were in the way the user performed the in-game test, and not an actual error in the FM. For example, not taking into account the difference in the in-game atmosphere and the real world data, which is typically corrected/converted to standard atmosphere, but not always! Another example, in WWII some countries the beginning of a rate of climb test started from a dead stop on the runway, where as others the beginning of a rate of climb test started with the plane air born at a low altitude. Not a big impact on the rate of climb data, but it does affect the time to climb results. Little difference like that can have a big effect on the results. So, until we have a way to log the in-game data, any and all in-game testing should be taken with a grain of salt. As a bare minimum a video should be recorded during the test so others can review the methods used during testing. On a related note, Combat Pilot Accounts.. Combat Pilot Accounts are great sources of information for the planes flying qualities, like the stick felt like it was in cement, the sounds it makes when you do this, the vibrations you feel when you do that.. But.. Combat Pilot Accounts are worthless sources of information for the planes performance! Reason being combat pilot accounts are typically one sided stories that says more about the pilot vs pilot skill than plane v.s. plane performance.. That and the combat pilot accounts typically do not contain enough information to recreate the scenario in-game to see if you can obtain the same results, let alone the other planes state.. Than there is the human factor, with regards to pilot accounts years after the fact, the simply truth is memories change and are lost or become inaccurate over a period of time. And like the old fisherman telling us about the 'big one' that got away, they tend to embellish the facts over time, that is to say the fish gets bigger each time the story is told. That is just human nature found in us all... For example, take Brian Williams recent snafu! For example, for every German pilot combat account of his Bf109 being able to out turn a Spitfire, their is a British pilot combat account of his Spitfire being able to out turn a Bf109.. Yet to this day people still think some sort of statistical average can be gleamed from pilot accounts.. But that is a pipe dream IMHO, for so many reasons, but probably the most important reason being, you never get a chance to read the after action report from the pilots that were killed in action! Last, but not least, remember that no flight simulation ever was, is, or will be perfect! Hence the title 'simulation of flight' as opposed to just 'flight'.
