    Lol! Methinks that "LWin+Home" will become all Tomcat owners new most memorised key! Oh, they'll start with the best intentions... "Only 248 steps to startup - I can do this! " … 30 minutes later, no engines lit "Bugger this for a ball of chalk. What the devil is that auto-start key binding?!?"

    Yes,I will admit to favoring the Lwin+Home shuffle when it comes to the Hornet! I just want to get in the air whilst I can still remember how to fire a particular weapon,having watched a YouTube vid 5 mins ago😕 The pressure will be on when there is a cue at the cat whilst you are still working your way through no 150 on the list.Everyone will be having to tank shortly after leaving the carrier!

    I have to say that if any aircraft could tempt me into the wizarding world of DCS, it would be the Tomcat ! A weekly DDz session dedicated to F14 carrier missions would be bloody fantastic..... calling the ball because it’s lost that loving feeling would give me the need for speed 🤪

    My thoughts exactly. I'll learn it later, first thing is to take it up and wring it out. See what it can do.

    Blimey, 'How many crew can you get in the back seat of a Mini/F-14? With that start-up as many as you can! Thanks Fen.

    Done: A Oh dear, just this little snippet .... lol ... oh my. I will sit back and watch it all happen ... It's a brilliant JET aircraft, but way too much for me to handle! "Set the Emergency Wing Sweep Handle all the way forward to 20 degrees (scroll mousewheel or left click & drag), then push the lever down with a right click and flip the handle cover over it. Then, press the MASTER RESET button (very important or the AUTO mode will not work properly). Use the Wing Sweep AFT & FWD buttons on your Wing Sweep Thumb switch (throttle) to exercise the wings through their whole range of motion. Then, set the Wing Sweep Thumb Switch UP to AUTO mode. The Wing Sweep Angle indicator should then automatically set themselves to 20 deg."

    Hey guys. Been busy in the real world with the grandkids and retirement travel. I did however finally got the time to finish my X52 upgrade project. Pretty much all new high quality parts as well as a HALL Effect for the throttle position. Also includes a mini thumb joystick for the strafing requirements in the 6DOF games I play. I will be updating my blog when I install it in my simpit.

    If any of you, as I was, are experiencing a bug where AGM-65s (and now the AGM-88 in the beta version) mounted on the outboard under wing pylons (stations 2 and 6 IIRC) do not disappear when fired, well i have a solution. I deleted the fxo & metashaders2 folder from C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\DCS (or DCS.openbeta as appropriate) folder. Then I Repaired DCS World from the Windows start menu. Ran a mission and now both AGM-65 and AGM-88 do not leave phantom missiles on outboard pylon when fired! To be clear: the bug behavior is weapons fire, track and (sometimes!) hit targets, disappearing from the stores page so they cannot be selected and weight and trim are affected accordingly; however, the 3D model remains on the pylon, unless emergency jettisoned.

    Nice video Grant. Can I make a suggestion? Instead of making a new thread each time you post a video, why not just add a new video to one of your existing threads? Then we can keep track of it all a bit better. S!

    Guys, The release order is as follows for vehicles, maps are harder to judge, but I won't put dates on any of them yet because they often change. Me-262 and Fw-190 D-9 are slated to come together. P-51D B-25 (AI) Tempest Mk.V P-38J Plus 8 more tanks in 2019 M4A2, PzKpfw IV Ausf.G, T-34 model of 1943, PzKpfw III Ausf.M to come together. SU-122, PzKpfw V Ausf.D, SU-152, Sd. Kfz. 184 to come together. GAZ-MM + 72K Sd. Kfz. 10 + Flak38 (Collector Vehicles) to come together after tanks done. Plus 6 more WWI kites in 2019 Fokker D.VII and D.VIIF and Sopwith Dolphin Albatros D.Va and S.E.5a Brisfit and Halberstadt CL.II and CL.IIau Plus 3 maps. Likely in this order, but this could change. Prokhorovka Map Bodenplatte Map Arras Map Plus... Bodenplatte Career Bodenplatte Scripted Campaign Another Payware Scripted Campaign or two from 3rd Parties Tank Crew Scripted Campaigns American and British Radio Calls Air/Field Marshal Feature Object Viewer New MP Lobby (Fingers crossed, this one won't be easy) PWCG Online Co-Op Campaign (Go chew on Pat about this) and hopefully many other tweaks and fixes etc. as we go along. Lots and lots of stuff to come in 2019. P.S. all this was announced in the beginning as part of our overall plan, but I've tried to give you some context. The order of the planeset releases is determined by what is possible when, no other reason. Planes can be restricted by the MP server operators if people complain.

    Unfortunately it is going to be a late decision for obvious reasons. Duxford definitely is on my to do list next year.

    Thanks, FT. Flight video here: The landing gear are plug-in struts for display only, removed for flying.
