  1. Put it on the calendar or it won't be remembered by this old fart 🤣!
  2. 👍👍👍👍
  3. So how many folks have pre ordered the F-14? Do we have enough to form a Dogz swim team?
  4. Trying to stay true to my word for a change.... F-14 Tomcat Pre Ordered as of 10 minutes before this post 😁! Will wait a bit on the Gulf map in hopes they will put it on sale around Black Friday or Christmas time..
  5. The results of my PFT were very encouraging. I am stable; little to no change in my lung capacities over the last 2.6 years.. While the numbers are nasty bad, they haven't changed much from the initial 25% function. I am now at 23% function (getting oxygen in to my blood stream). With supplemental O2, I will be able to poke around this earth a bit longer. So, tomorrow I have to stick to my word and preorder the F-14 😁,

    Need more gigs

    My current game drive is a 500gb ssd (D: drive) . As of today, I have 183gb free. Just noted that IF I decide to get the F-14, it needs 120gb of disk space. With that in mind, I am considering getting an M.2 1tb ssd and move everything to that. Not my OS, it is on its own 120gb ssd (C: drive). Not sure what I will use the empty 500gb ssd for, but I am sure it will be used. I do have a conventional 2tb hdd (E: drive) that I use as a back up for data. Anyone see any obvious problems with this? And yes, my motherboard has the M.2 slot. Thanks in advance.
  7. Sounds good to me! Well, depending on the results of the Pulmonary Function Test next Monday (am I stable, declining, etc), I will pre-order.
  8. Sounds interesting. I will just go with the flow of the pack!

    Cleaned up a bit and with all that I have I am coming in around ~50gb for DCS. So even if I add the F-14 and the Gulf map, the 182gb I have free should be just fine. I may just add a 500gb M.2 sata ssd for grins. Thanks for the assistance.
  10. If enough folks get the F-14, are we gonna open a Naval wing? Maybe WebfootDogz 🤣🤣🤣?

    Another misread on my part. Went back and read a little more carefully. The 120gb is recommended space for the DCS 2.5 if running everything on high settings, not just the F-14. With that in mind, I should be okay. Will do some house keeping on the game drive too free up some space even tho I have plenty. Thanks again!

    I will go back and check, but that is what I read at a glance when reading up on the F-14 on DCS World's site. It very well could have been referring to DCS in its entirety and not just the aircraft. Thanks for making me revisit the specs.

    For those that may have one (or more) of these, other than the obvious, what is/are the advantage(s) (or lack thereof) of these models in game? The A model is $15 USD and the C model is $60 USD. Just curious at this point. Thanks!

    I agree Kira, the non clickable 'pit is maddening (and harder cause I gotta memorize all the key bindings) but it will give a little entertainment for $15 while I wait for the next big ED sale. Plus I am learning about the weapons delivery systems.

    Thanks Fen. I have extra hat switches and a mini joy stick on my throttle I should be able to assign. Knowing now what the TDC is helps 😁!

    Now the key bindings begin. Hope I have enough since the cockpits ain't clickable...but hey, that's part of the brain melting process 🤣!

    Well dipping my toes in the newer stuff. Keeping it simple for now. Bought the A10A and the F15. Complicated enough for now and I will save what brain cells I have left for the F-14. I see a Warthog Hotas in my future..maybe around black Friday..
  18. The Jug is gonna be a beast to fly.. can't wait! 😁😁
  19. My understanding, the tags only appear if you pre-ordered a set. But then again, I don't understand much 🤣!
  20. 👍👍👍

    Cockpit 'Tint'

    No blue tint here so I don't think it is generic to the game, but then again I have been tweaking and seeking on mine for so long and am on my second different monitor, so I am probably not a good resource. Someone will pipe up with more I'm sure! BTW, good to "meet" you.

    Yep, saw the same

    DCS Stable Release Version Update 17-10-18

    Thanks Fin.. still on the edge (of jumping off the cliff) of pre-ordering the Tomcat. Decisions, decisions.
  24. Finally watched the video...cold chills... just might break down and take the plunge. Still want the A10C..this sh$t is getting expensive 😁!
