Bummer. But I guess it means the plane should look pretty good when they're done.

 

I'll be more than happy if we get the new clouds next week. That's #1 on my list.

I'd be happy to fly it with a sub optimal exterior whilst they work on a new one. Seems odd that they would pull it just for the exterior.

After the crap they got for the Viper being released too early...and rightfully so, it's probably best for them to take their time to make sure they can get as much up to par as they can prior to release.

The main complaint I see about the new Helo's coming out is lack of decent ground vehicle damage model. 

 

Although I will probably get the hind one day as its beast of an aircraft I cant see myself rushing to get it. Still waiting for a sale on the F16 and syria first

My guess - April Fools and you'll see it very shortly.

I could be wrong...but I've seen too many of these April Fools gags.

 

As I 3D modeler I can tell you that it's impossible to suddenly discover that your model isn't up to snuff. You build to a certain standard the entire time.

Aren't April Fools jokes supposed to be made on April 1st? This was apparently stated in a podcast the previous day. And it seems unlikely the ED would make a joke that could harm their reputation.

In that case color me surprised regarding the model.

That's a Dora after eating two 1000lbs AIM-54 Pheonix missiles (direct hits). Something tells me, the damage-model needs a bit of tweaking.

Are you actually going to be able to get a card?

 

You mean like...ever? I hope so!

As for the very near future - not looking like it. I'm gong to be stuck building this rig with my existing 1080, and upgrading the card later I think.

Not what I wanted, but I'm running short on options other than just letting these parts sit here for who knows how long.

My rig run just fine with my 1080ti

On all sim I use. But O am not picky when to use VR. I can use screen on fs 2020. And keep all the beautiful.

Dcs run smooth in VR with acceptable settings.

Gross. Sorry about your conundrum. :(

 

What a sh1tshow for cards. I would like to get a new one in a few months but that will probably not happen. For the moment I feel lucky indeed to have an 8GB 2060 Super. It's just nuts, they are selling for almost twice the price I paid in December 2019.

Nice...I'd be feeling OK if I had a 2060 right now.

I'm in too deep to just flip this whole endeavor the bird...something I wish I could do at times.

Maybe if we all say a prayer and Bitcoin crashes to $2, cards will free up.

Nice! And I think we have the same case (and PSU), though I've seen different pics for the same version.

 

I have this one and I love it. Was great to build in.

Hmmm good point, this just might be their way to surprise folks with a pre-order or even Early Access drop.  Evidently there was also teasing of a Phantom of some type on their discord yesterday

No, no, no. You're saving your heart for an F-104. :happy:

The F-104 just gets you the crash site at a really high rate of speed ūü§£

 

The F-104 is a very cool looking jet, just doesn't have the a proven combat record and pure sex appeal of the F-4.  If they are doing one, I'm hoping the E model which would make the most sense from a use standpoint, we'll see though...

Was listening to the Fighter Pilot Podcast on the F104 a while back...an¬†Immelmann was a 15,000 foot evolution.¬†ūüėܬ†It could do a 180 over 2 states.

Pretty much blow through a dogfight, hope you could get a guy in your sites to take a shot, (most likely not)...in either case nothing to do but keep your foot in in it.

F-104G - first plastic model I ever built.

Blue Angels F-4's (set of 4) was my second (and 3 and 4th I guess)

Version 2.7 has now been pushed back to April 14 with a "subject to change" notice.  I do appreciate them having confidence enough in the product to publicly announce release dates they are aiming for, even if they have to bump them around as things change.

I saw that over at Stormbirds. Bummer.

I buildt one myself as a first. When I was born one with a passed out pilot evacuated the hospital. It had taken off in Germany and the pilot stopped responding. Two Norwegian fighters followed it ready to shoot it down.

When it seemingly had a course not hazardous for cities,  until it was too late to do anything. It crashed in a hilltop right in front of Narvik

A P-38 in DCS is probably still several years away unless someone else is developing it

I don't think they're working on a P38 for DCS.  They've got their hands full with the A7 at the moment.

 

https://flyingironsimulations.com/blogs/news/dcs-a-7e-development-update-2021

 

They do have a P38 in Xplane but expect to see that as a port to MSFS before any work on a new DCS model takes place.
