  1. Hello fellow members! I have searched the forum for any topics on DCS (Digital Combat Simulator) and I found nothing. I am interested in seeing if people of this community have any interest in these kind of simulators. Now I'm not in any way or shape on an instructor level of knowledge when it comes to this sim or any aircraft but I'm getting by learning as I go. Key features of DCS World 2.5: *The most realistic Free-to-Play digital battlefield ever. *One-of-a-kind, internally developed graphics engine that looks amazing from 0 to 80,000 feet. *Includes a beautiful, free, and highly detailed map of the Caucasus region that includes south western Russia and Georgia. *Includes 20 fully-equipped operational airbases, millions of buildings and trees, and thousands of kilometers of usable roads and railway. *Includes 156 free and fully operational weapons systems, 105 ground vehicles, 19 ships and 84 AI-controlled aircraft. *Fly the TF-51 Mustang and Su-25T attack jet for free! *Play all DCS World modules from one DCS World version. *State-of-the-art graphics with amazing lighting, shadows, and performance. *New breathtaking effects for explosions, clouds, fog, fire, and smoke. *Hundreds of land, air and seaborne AI vehicles. The world is your sandbox. *Create your own missions and campaigns for unlimited gameplay! *Mission generator included allowing rapid mission creation. *Enjoy multiplayer with friends, and even fly together in the same aircraft for multi-crew missions! *Purchase and fly the most iconic airplanes and helicopters from WWII up to the modern day. *Mouse interactive 6 degrees of freedom cockpits for most aircraft and the most accurate flight models, cockpit systems, sensors, targeting systems and sounds available. *Purchase and fly the most authentic simulations of the A-10C Warthog, UH-1H Huey, F-86F Sabre, Spitfire, and many others now. *Exciting new aircraft coming to DCS World like the F-14 Tomcat, F/A-18C Hornet, F-4E Phantom II, Mi-24P Hind, P-47D Thunderbolt, and many more! *Purchase additional high-quality maps such as Normandy 1944 and the Nevada Test and Training Range. *Play hundreds of missions and campaigns with new campaigns continually created. *Both hardcore realistic and casual gameplay modes and options available. *Virtual reality support. *Track IR support.

The sim can be beautiful.

    Do you even DCS bro?

    Well this is why I did make this post, people who have no idea what they are doing learning together. Just give me a shout if you want to fly sometime.

    I use the Warthog HOTAS so I have two seperate throttle axis. I use one for collective (angle of the blades) and one for the throttle (increase-decrease the RPM of the engine). In other games you usually just have a throttle with no need for adjustment of the collective.

    Is it the KA-50 Black Shark?

    My simpit (not finished)

    So, it's finished. I'm pleased with how it turned out, it does look like furniture and not just some toy that I feel embarrased to show to others. There are still those parts about it that I want to change but I can set aside an hour or two when I can to modify and adjust those problems. Hope you like the design and if you do decide to use this design with a few ideas of your own, please upload images here so that I can se what you did differently. /Fatie89 http://
  7. During my summer vacation of last year I started working on my simpit. I've yet to complete it but I'm planning on doing that this spring/summer. What I wanted with this build was to be able to just sit at it and browse the web and the next moment be playing SC without moving and connecting my HOTAS and rudder pedals. The thing with SC is that it's an FPS and flight game which means if you are playing with a HOTAS for flying and mouse and keyboard for FPS, something's always in the way. My design of this simpit makes it so I have everything ready for when I want to use it. My HOTAS is always connected and it's not in the way on my mouse and keyboard and vice versa. As I also play driving games from time to time I also wanted to make it easy to get into driving mode. After using the simpit for a few months I have things that I need to change that are driving me crazy sometimes but the main design is done.

    Thanks! Thanks! And I will update the post when I've gotten further.

    Support for steering wheels would be awesome.

    My simpit (not finished)

    That right there with the keyboard and mouse is what I wanted to get around for games like SC. Having a place for everything. The best thing about the way that you have done it is that there is no problem with leg room while using pedals.

    My simpit (not finished)

    The mouse under the keyboard is actually very comfy as I have my Logitech G13 keyboard next to the mouse. My hands are usually at the same level to each other. What I want to change is the height as I right now bump my knees into the underside of where the keyboard and mouse are when I use the racing or rudder pedals. I did not realise this until I actually sat down in it. I would like to make it more configurable so that I can find the best position for everything and for when others are using it.

    I've now uploaded my own build.
  13. Well, I'm a little late, had to go to the bathroom. Great article, it makes me even more exited for the 3.0 release.
  14. Fatie89

    ANTHEM? What do you think?

    I'm exited, it looks amazing. I actually liked Andromeda (and Inquisition) even at the level of quality it had, so from what I've seen from this, I'm interested. And remember folks, we have not really seen anything yet. Don't make a decision yet on how you love or hate this game. The only thing we've seen is a bit of gameplay and what the graphic hopefully looks like. The story might actually be incredible, or just dirt, wait and see.

    From one idiot to another, good luck, we believe in you.
  17. Well hello there fellow members! I just wanted to make you all aware of this VR title. VR has not had any real games that I've been interested in until now and that is why I've been holding back on buying a Rift. Now that this game is coming out I finally felt that it was time. Star Trek Bridge Crew places you in one of four roles, Captain, Helm, Tactical and Engineer. This does not only look like a really fun game to play but also a really good game for us members to play together as a crew with specific roles. The only real negative, and positive part at the same time is the fact that it's a vr game, so of course it's only for those in possession of a Rift or Vive headset and controllers. The game is released on may 30. On Steam http://store.steampowered.com/app/527100/Star_Trek_Bridge_Crew/

    Well I can always hope for the best.

    As I already have a 4k headset I think the tech is there, they just have to invest in it. Right now the focus seems to be freedom, having a PC on your back letting you walk around without having to worry about cords. You also have to remember that you will need a really good PC if you want to play games in 4k, 90Hz in VR. The headset I have right now is only 60Hz which actually isn't that bad, I clearly notice a difference between my Rift and the Pimax (4k China headset) when it comes to FPS and how smooth it is but 60Hz is still fine, I've had no problem with it. If the big players (Oculus and HTC) decide to use a 4k 60Hz screen and keep the way you can move around with their products I think they will have a really good product on the market in a year or two. We might see something new at E3 next month, really looking forward to it. Good to hear! As I already bought it I'll see you on the bridge.

    The way you can smoothly control the ship in all directions is incredible. If CIG is still working on a SC HOTAS setup, they should really take a few notes from this build.

    What kind of integration are you working on? I'm intrigued.

    Oh yes it's expensive but all new tech is and this is the first generation, if we want a second gen then we have to support the current one so that the developers keep improving and making it more mainstream. So if you like the idea of VR, support this gen by buying it (if you can afford it of course) so that they can lower the price and raise the quality. I do have a China made 4k headset and the resolution is fantastic even though it only supports 2k res at the moment. The problem is there's no sensors for moving your head except turning it. But with this I've seen how good vr can get when it comes to image quality. I giggle every time I take a seat in a cockpit in DCS because of the realistic feel to it.
  23. I'm getting one! Don't know when but I will own a 1080ti even if I have to sell my neighbours kids. I wonder what people pay for noisy kids these days?

    Building a simpit

    The problem with not changing anything is all too real. I bought an adaptor for my racing pedals which would give me the choice of using them as racing pedals or rudder pedals with the flick of a switch but uhm, it did not work the way I wanted it to. That means I have to be able to switch between the two units and doing it in an easy way. The design is getting reworked in my head right now and my economy does not allow a larger deposit right now anyway.

    This is awesome! I'm drawing my plans for something similar myself at the moment. I'm going to try and make it so that I don't have to change anything going from flying to racing to fps, or at least the smallest changes possible. Really cool build, hope it will serve you well!
