MiG-21bis, Tutorial, LandingGears
My MiG-21bis was lifting up and it was time to pull in the the landing gears.
I began to Hit G Hit G Hit G - Uhh, where's the sound telling me that gears are up and we are ready to rock.
Ok, maybe I should look at the manual. When all else fails, read the manual :)

The MiG-21-bis system is not a auto-magical one. It is connected with ex...

MiG-21bis - Too Many Buttons + Mission

I am starting on the learning curve for the MiG-21bis and, yes there are a lot of buttons. It is not like the A-10C button-fest which is like running multiple Windows programs. Systems need to be powered up, then those systems need to be authorized for safety's sake. Then you need to choose the right options by hitting more switches. There are no short-cu...

I undertook the task to do a beach assault mission. It was to have lots of scripting and events as well as AI units interacting. I then expanded it further to produce three versions - for the Ka-50, A-10C, and the Su-25T. I certainly learned a lot and might as well use that as fodder for another Blog entry.

Types of Aircraft

With the three types of a...

My Current Usage

Ka-50 RECON by Buddy

I had been testing Ka-50 Beach Prep Mission for the Black Shark and remembered that you could send your wingman to collect enemy locations and transmit them to your Black Shark. It is done through a radio data-link and the enemy positions will appear on your Ka-50 ABRIS map system. Unfortunately, that mission had an error in it with the radios - fixed bu...

Part of the pleasure of flying sims is the activities going on in the world outside of the plane. Not just the plane, but active airports and other aircraft going about their business. The atmosphere makes for a better experience.

There are in fact mods and scripts that provide continuity or ambiance enhancements
