Why is it that the renders always look better than the in-game regardless of how high you crank it up?

 

Using 3D app renders is always a bit misleading and I wish they wouldn't do it.

Our guys here do it right.... simple renders in Max (A-20 cockpit was just with ambient occlusion turned on) and leave the textured renders to the in-game engine.

Bad practice otherwise IMHO for obvious reasons.

Normally that ED and 3rd party renders has build on 3DS Max render engine, has normally a better texture, effects and more better with any simulator 3D engine. previously to use them by EDM plugins to export on DCS World. Some pics can be extracted to DCS World Modelviewer.

TBF to them, Ed rushed the harrier a bit out of them so they had to focus on that instead of the M-2000C, so hopefully both are produced up to full working order

My familiarity with them is from FSX.  I don't think they've ever completed any project and fixed the bugs of something they've released.

Iown all the WW2 modules and Normandy , but I have not flown any of them more than once, I think I not yet even configured controls on the 109 . I am all in for the choppers. No game simulate choppers better than DCS.


Very true, I picked up the Huey in a sale last summer and after two weeks had to have the others.
The flight dynamics of helicopters are one of DCS's strong points.

I was going to get the Spitfire on release but I was in the process of moving house at the time and held off. Never did get it in the end and after seeing what WWII is like in DCS I don't regret that decision, despite being a big Spitfire fan in general.

I understand that there were other factors going on as to why ED ended up making a Normandy theatre, but they really should have stuck to jets and helos and left WWII to CloD and BoX.

I love Huey but there is something seriously wrong with Gazelles FM. I dont think you should be able to do this. I hope Polyhcop will fix it.

But Polychop swears up and down the Gazelle FM is near perfect and has been verified as such by real Gazelle pilots!   :P

 

Seriously though, I agree. I love choppers in DCS but haven't reinstalled the Gazelle since building my Ryzen system last June. The FM is just too awful.

The Gazelle FM is ridiculous and I fly Eurocopter/Airbus products regularly. EC120's are a little twitchy but the Gazelle puts real world R22's to shame for having to stay ahead of the aircraft.

If the argument against expanding to the Western Front is simply the Luftwaffe was overwhelmed and defeated then there is absolutely no reason to ever go back to the late war Eastern Front either.

No way in the world a gazelle can do that, lol!

I've been in a gazelle many times whilst in the army, had joyrides where I asked the pilot to throw it around the sky and nothing like that was in his bag of tricks for putting the wind up a couple of gobby para's...

One of the guys in my regiment transferred to the Army Air Corp and was quizzed about the loop and inverted roll on a regimental mess dinner... he was pretty adamant that it was the Lynx that could do it but not a gazelle.

Huey is extremely well done. Haven't piloted a real one yet but I've crewed on them. Seems plausible with some slight control coordination discrepancies in the hover.

The 1,5 does not have the new FM only 2.0 got the new Gazelle FM yet. Not tried it yet, since I am busy with other stuff in DCS . But people say the new FM is good

Good to hear that they have fixed it. I shall wait for 2.5 to try it out. And great to hear the new damage model is coming soon as well. Finally bought Argo campaing for Huey from Autumn sale for only $4,99.

Is there a way to install the Nevada map from the DCS site onto a Steam DCS install?

Steam doesn't have the sale and the DCS site lists their map as Steam incompatible.

He is wrong. Kinda. The gazelle was the first helicopter capable of doing a loop but the Lynx can do it much more easily.  A friend who flew gazelles for the Royal Marines confirms they did it but it was frowned upon.   One of the Red Bull pilots does many loops & rolls (in a Bo-105) and I have seen footage of him performing a loop without spilling any water from a glass placed in front of him.

Been fiddling with the F-5E this week. Lovely aircraft, just about idiot proof (though bombing is tricky) and not without its quirks.

The lack of content for it is a problem though, since except a single campaign the rest is all for Nevada.

Fellas, I've got a simple questions for those of you who own Normandy... in the various videos/images I've seen, I observed a particularly inconsistent quality in cockpit shadows.

To be more precise, they look like they're very low-resolution, with aliasing all over the place. I also tried my own and old DCS (latest release version, not Open Alpha), and even at the highest settings, cockpit shadows do look aliased. Still, I remember seeing smooth and beautiful looking shadows, from a number other users.

In short: what's the state of the current in-cockpit shadowing, in the Open Alpha? Does it look better, with the new deferred shading? Could someone provide their own screenshots taken at highest settings in the Open Alpha?

Thanks!

Do you have any recommendations I might have missed, banzaii? So far I've only found a few single missions and one French campaign for the Caucasus. Everything else is for NTTR as far as I can see.

The rotor head on the RedBull AC is not standard and is proprietary. The pilot doesn't even want to talk about it when asked about anything technical regarding it.

Yeah, but I guess that is more about  other aerobatic stuff like prolonged inverted fligth stuff.. the early stock bo-105s with their rigid rotor head where all loopable.

 

 

meanwhile, the Gazelles rotorhead keeps me puzzled in DCS
