  1. Just wondering if the front is supposed to move on the Rheinland map? I'm a few months into my P-38 campaign and the front seems to have stayed static. No worries if not, just curious. Thanks! Last time I used PWCG was more than a year ago and I honestly can't remember if the front moved on the other maps or not. I know it did in RoF.
  2. I don't understand why this energy isn't being focused towards the server owners. DCS has several very good servers (with varying levels of professionalism) that require a password. To get that password you must join the discord, just hop on, you don't have to say anything if you don't want to. However, I myself (an introvert) soon found myself participating simply because it adds that much to the experience. Some of the servers are set up with ground control roles and everything (not everyone listens to them, but that's ok, it still works). It allows those that want to team up to do so, and those that don't are not forced to, and can even mute the channel if they so choose. I don't see why 1C should be forced to divert development resources to do this, when the tools are already there - just nobody chooses to use or enforce them on servers.
  3. Are you using USB 3.0 ports? I had this issue way back when with my X55, and it was due to not enough power coming through USB 2.0 ports (if my memory serves, it was a long time ago).
  4. I'm just running with whatever PWCG picks by default
  5. Maybe it's been reported, but just in case - my P38 BOBP campaign has russian voices on the radio. Just a small thing. Thanks for all your effort! This is an amazing plugin I've used since RoF. EDIT: Ignore me! Just saw on another post that you're aware.
  6. I'm back after a long hiatus and took the (glorious) P38 out for a few missions using PWCG. However, the AI still does not seem to want to do anything other than turn for days. One example: A G-14 caught me offguard in a dive from behind. Strafed, missed, blew past me and went into a turn that lasted for a literal 10 minutes before I finally got a snap shot. Are there any mods or anything that I can do to address this? I remember it being an issue before, but I was hoping it had been fixed by now. Thanks for any input!
  7. Says someone who has been around since at least BoS early access...... Put yourself in a new players shoes. It can be incredibly daunting, even for someone who comes from flight sims. The elitist attitude does nothing to encourage new players to fly how they are comfortable flying, and advance to more complicated gameplay as they are ready. We should be embracing and encouraging these "normal" players as potential future competitors on the realism servers. Not belittling them for their choice of gameplay.
  8. Yeah..... I'll pass, purely based on that thumbnail image.
  9. Nobody is talking about the flight model except you.......? This topic is about AI decision-making in combat.
  10. Exactly. I probably did not make myself clear enough but that is what I was trying to say in the opening. There is little to no decision making happening once the AI has committed to a strategy it seems. Please, I'm sure this was not your intention, but people need to stop beating others over the head with the MP club. I've already stated, I do play MP. However, very frequently I am not able to due to adult responsibilities and such. Would you rather I was on your MP server, fighting you, and as soon as you line up your shot I disconnect because my kid is setting fire to something? I doubt it. I get it, some of you are not interested in SP. No matter to me, that's great that you have a game mode you love so much, but please do not imply that somehow SP is inferior to MP just because it's not your cup of tea.
  11. You absolutely need to OC that i5. I have exactly the same specs as you (32gb RAM, big deal), and have gotten that CPU to 4.2 comfortably on an H60 cooler. Makes a big difference. Performance was fine on the Rift with my system. It just wasn't for me, ended up returning it and going back to monitor and TIR.
  12. Keep in mind - I'm talking about the AI performing a never ending continuous turn in the same direction. Never attempting to adjust speed or altitude (the last time it happened, I believe we were around 500m minimum. I dropped down on him from 1000m, and it wasn't far) at all to evade me. I'm not complaining that an AI is truly turn-fighting me on the deck. I think I'm going to start a new campaign and bump the difficulty setting up to see how noticeably it changes.
  13. Right, because screw the rest of us. I forgot that since you're not interested in it, it's not that important.
  14. There's always Rise of Flight. Not WW2, I know, but a great sim - and free. Might at least tide you over..... You're more patient than I am. I'd be sending a second request.
  15. You are definitely not. I ended up returning my Rift. I just did not enjoy it. Sure, seeing a lifesize cockpit was cool, but the low resolution, poor perfomance, inability to interact with cockpit controls (meaning constantly having to lift the goggles to find a specific key) and glaring screendoor effect simply outweighed any positives, for me personally. It was like a breath of fresh air when I finally went back to a monitor and TIR. If they start coming out with 4k+ displays I might think about getting another. I dunno. I don't really miss it, tbh.
