Mission Requests Taken - Ground Pounders

Posted by ZoomBoy , in A-10C, Missions, Black Shark, Uncategorized 27 September 2014 - - - - - - · 84 views
mission, A-10C, Su-25, ka-50
I have transferred over about 6 or 7 missions for the Su-25T from Flaming Cliffs 1.12 to DCS World. But that's going to take a lot of testing and tweaking until it works out correctly. So as a switch from that, I am going to make some other missions for the other ground-pounders (A-10C, Su-25 maybe, and Ka-50 Black Shark)

In the end I'm going to have a M...

Black Shark: Night Missions Possible

Black Shark: Night Missions Possible Night-time missions were near impossible as the Shkval Target Designator can barely pick up targets for missiles. When looking through the new options with the Mission Editor, I came across illuminating bombs(LUU-2) option. After testing, they're good enough for night missions for the night-blind Ka-50 Black Shark.

A-10C Wingman Basics

Posted by ZoomBoy , in Tutorial, Instrument, A-10C 11 September 2011 - - - - - - · 1,602 views
A-10C, Wingman
In testing my earlier A-10C mission, I usually would do all the work of destroying the targets.  But whenever I sent off my wingman to a target I had specified, he went some place - almost at random.  I had to dig into this if I wanted to get this right and do bigger missions.

A10C Mission: Chikola Night Hunt

I usually like a narrative to a mission - the terrain and objectives usually provide good hooks.  So I usually choose the map area first - setting up a campaign in the region of Republic of North Ossetia-Alania, Russia in southern Russia.  I don't see many missions there.  But if you are going to have a fictional conflict, you can place it pretty much...

NDB? - Non-Directional Beer?

No, it's a Non-Directional Beacon.  These beacons are standard navigation devices used at modern airports and used by the Ka-50 Black Shark.  Before GPS and the other modern navigational aids, it was an important way to guide planes to airports.  But for a Ka-50 in a war zone, it's a good backup to have.

For the Ka-50 it's a backup system to...

Skills Learned: 1st A-10C Mission

Been working on my first thorough DCS: A-10C mission.  With maximized randomness and having to test the air cover and radio usage, by repetition alone, I added a few skills to my repertoire. A lot of this was difficult to explain - but much easier to do.  It is like flying a software program
- Know WHERE the Focus(SOI) is
- Know WHEN you can use all t...

BlackShark Mission: Coast-Runners

Posted by ZoomBoy , in Missions, Black Shark 14 August 2011 - - - - - - · 680 views
Black Shark, Mission
I was working on both a Black Shark and a A-10C mission and just had some testing to do.  But for the A-10C I had also drafted a blog-entry called - A-10C: Things Learned.  That blog-entry was nearly done but as I play(test)ed more, I realized I had more to learn.  So I finished the Black Shark mission and have published it.

A:10C - Mo' Random, Mo' Replayability

Flags, Missions, A-10C
I've been working on some A-10C missions and exploring the Mission Editor(ME) and all its options.  But in one mission I wanted to maximize the replayability by maximizing the randomness.  And to do that I wanted different Enemy Tank Groups to have different paths but have only one show up at mission start.

Flags for A-10
So to randomly choose which...

Fire, Fire, Fire !!

For a long time I had meant to learn how to use the fire extinguisher system for the Ka-50 Black Shark.  Sadly, I only remember this when I've been hit and my engines are on fire.  

The fire extinguisher system of the Ka-50 Black has two bottles of fire suppresant.  As seen in the picture below, the system also has warning lights to show where the fi...

Start Me Up!!

As a guy who thinks the meat of a mission is what happens AFTER you lift off, the auto-start [L.WIN + HOME ] is what I usually use.   As someone said, "Learning the Start-up will help you understand the reasons "why" things fail."  I've loaded dilshan1994's DCS: Black Shark Startup Guide  onto my laptop for learning.  
Very importa...
