^^ Please send feedback to beefstache911@hotmail.com, this is not a joke that 'stache is the real deal. Serious assessments only. ^^


Newbie Friendly Goon Mission coming up next Saturday. Free map. Free planes. Cheap planes. Want to see what this is all about but don't want to spend a dime? Sign up for one of the SU-25 slots. We only ask that you take the time to learn how to take off and maybe shoot stuff. Landing optional. Or sign up for the pretty simple F15C which I think is only :tenbux: or something.

This mission also features black sharks, and Warthogs. If you only have the original A10 let me know and we can accommodate you.

Still plenty of room in this mission for those unwilling to give ED :tenbux: Come and fly a SU-25 and blow stuff up this Saturday.

DCS is running a sale through November 8th on their website. The standalone client works with your Steam purchases (but not the other way around, iirc). Now is a good chance to get Flaming Cliffs 3 if you are new and want several non-click planes (F-15, A-10A, Su-33, Mig-27, Mig-29), or if you want to commit to an emersive experience in a clickable cockpit there are many to choose from. Hot choices that are presently 50% off include the Harrier and the Mig-21. F-16 and F-18 have a smaller discount, but are feature rich.

It might seem a bit daunting to get into, but our community has knowledgeable and friendly people to help dampen the learning curve.

If you could buy one plane on the sale and it's either the Mig 21 or the Mirage which would you choose?

Do you enjoy quirky, where the flying itself is the thing but shooting is fairly straight-forward? MiG
Do you want sensible, where flying is straight-forward but shooting can get complex? Baguette.

Alternatively… do you want your plane to have a place in most missions? Baugette. The MiG is often overlooked because of how odd it is, but if a mission is made with it in mind, it's an absolute blast.

I bought the MiG-21 because it goes really fast

what a long, strange trip it's been.




The Mirage also goes really fast and doesn't flame out if you go too fast. (Its wings rip off before the engine dies.)

I was going to get one plane and the Persian gulf map but maybe I'll drop the map and get 2 planes.

You should get the map for sure. Persian Gulf is much better than the default map and it's used just as much in multiplayer.

Nonono. Persian Gulf ranks as the #1 or #2 purchase you need to make with DCS.

You can keep having fun with almost any plane until you break down and get a new one, but flying over the Caucasus region for the umpteenth time gets old and as most people have been doing so for a decade, everyone is much more positive to play on and create content for PG.

If you're in doubt, I'd say that the Mirage is a safer choice, because the Fishbed can be a bit of an acquired taste. Now, your bet is more along the line of whether safer is boring and whether your tastes are easily adaptable.

e:f;b — yes, PG + MiG gives you lots of opportunities to get lost in the sand.

The most amazing thing about that isn't the flying but that the replay worked and let him capture the different angles.

OPERATION BLIND DRUNK
Mission for 2020 November 14 @ 2000 UTC

It is a period of civil war. Georgia is split between pro-Soviet pinko commies and freedom-loving capitalist Georgians. A US carrier group has moved in to assist in defense as the Reds mount an assault.

There's another sale going on at the DCS store (Steam coming later apparently, but lol), until December 7th.

Also there's another mission this weekend:

Operation Thousand Words



Syrian Democractic Forces have rallied in Aleppo. ISIL has consolidated in Raqqa and the surrounding area, including the airfield at Tabqa. Our coalition is preparing to dislodge ISIL and assist the SDF in moving the fight to Raqqa.

One thing that has always frustrated me about DCS is how an update might completely change procedures that have been in place for years. I've been proficient with the A-10C (not the II subvariant) for 8-9 years. Tonight, I fired it up for the first time in six or eight months and when I try to drop GBU-12s I get nothing but "AUTOLASE FAIL" as my bomb sails off into the sunset.

Recent updates have also changed the way laser-guided weapons are deployed in the F-18, so now I have to relearn a routine to fight in that. Other instances I can recall are changing the startup sequence in the Huey and the Bf-109.

I get why it happens, but it's just frustrating and off-putting. I don't have a ton of time to devote to this and having the rug pulled out from under me annoys me.
