I wanted to open a dedicated topic, but I saw this one, and thought it was just fine.

I bought a better computer and a larger monitor last year, so finally I had a chance to get involved into DCS World this spring. And I must say my impressions are not that good. I bought a P-51D Mustang, a Mirage 2000C, and a P-47D Thunderbolt. I plan to buy a MiG-21bis too, because of the Serbian livery. But I am flying only the warbirds for now, that is the Mustang most of the time, because it is my kind of thing, I am not sure whether I will be using the jets at all, but I am planning to. The program itself is zero user friendly, and there is no customer support whatsoever. Their ED Forums aro no better, everyone acts smart, and everyone knows nothing, every time I ask for some help, I receive no responds. I just have to rely on You Tube videos and tutorials. And the modules are EXPENSIVE.

If I comment on the Mustang, the model looks great, but not quite finished yet, even for such an old DCS module like this. For example, the bombs obviously don't work properly, and it seems like bomb and rocket effects have been swapped. I can fly few training missions, but that's it. The mission editor is so complicated, that I am not sure when I will try to create some custom mission. There are online servers, but I find the environment is not that friendly. I was flying a Mustang, it took me half an hour just to reach the area where everyone was, when some freak from the same blue team in freaking F/A-18C Hornet shot me down with missiles, he even missed the first one. I remember using Microsoft CFS3 online long time ago, and it was FUN, we were gathering to fly around and chat, and it was GREAT time to spend.

To be honest, I wish I flew Bf 109 K-4 Kurfürst, because of its awesome climb and turn rates, and the 30mm cannon, but it sucks the models are not historically accurate because in some countries the swastika is forbidden, also its gun sight sucks. I wish for a Bf 109 K-4 Kurfürst with some friendly livery and the Mustang gun sight, but it ain't gonna happen. The Mustang gun sight is superb, though, but its climb and turn rates suck a bit. But it also has got fuel for export, unlike the other models, which is great. I can dogfight them until they run out of fuel, roflmfao.

But lets move to some action, Lt. Col. Silent Film in all his glory. :cool: Decades of various flight simulators paid off. :smile:

Mustang (Silent Film) vs. Dora (AI)

A one minute dogfight. My first recorded DCS World video. I am still new to GeForce Experience, I don't know why it recorded it at half speed when I replayed the track, I needed to accelerate the video speed two times to get the proper speed. It was probably some lowest level AI, lol, but who cares, AI cheats all the time anyway. And they say "sloppy guns", what do they know, except for acting smart. And it ain't freaking missile, warbirds are FUN.



That is one National-Socialist down. He ejected, but I did see no parachute, lol. :lol: It's raining National-Socialists, watch out. :thumbup:
Looks good though. As to playing online, there are always punks out for points, they shoot everyone, regardless.
Some even setup games to where you never have a chance, they make it so you have no escape, pick you off and you respawn in the same place and die again and again.

These little punks are usually preteen, haven't got a life and care nothing about etiquette.

It is more about learning to fly a particular aircraft than to play a game with it. The models are very complex and close to the original.

The Mustang needed a 40 minutes long cockpit tutorial, and still it is not near enough to learn the cockpit and how it behaves in real situations.



I was thinking about my issue with the bombs, and then I remembered that I forgot to arm them before releasing them, roflmfao, so the bombs in Mustang work just fine.

Yeah, I remember the game, though I didn't think it was so much a game because of it's steep ass learning curve and lack of action.
I got a little ways into it but found it to be a bit choppy and eventually boring, but that may have been the initial release.

If I can't pick up a rock and throw it at rat at the shore of the river, without hours of precious time allotted to the breakdown of the rock, it's make up and origin of said igneous rocks weight and aerodynamics of the pile in the selection before me, I'm walking away, and so I did. :biggrin:

Lol, I'm on flight simulators more than three decades, ha ha ha, it has become my second nature. :thumbup:

Mustang (Silent Film) vs. Kurfürst (AI)

Bf 109 still gives me tons of trouble, can out-run me, can out-climb me, can out-dive me, can out-turn me, and got more powerful weapons. Making me push my P-51 to the maximum G, I wonder whether AI ever blacks-out.
