    Hello, hello!

    Hey all - Some of you might already recognize my handle from your server, others may recognize me from about 12+ years ago when I used to fly with Polecat, Mustang and Manawar back when 169th Panthers were a thing; great guys to fly with. Back then I was a fiery, sarcastic High Schooler... now a little less fiery. I figured I would just say hello since I pretty much exclusively fly on your server unless I feel like flying on one of the aero servers. I've been a bit AWOL on your server as of late... mostly trying to practice flying and learning the new systems in the hornet - lots of fun. I saw you guys do recruitment twice a year; I shall look forward to applying when the time comes! See ya in the air! Gup

    Persian Gulf Appreciation

    I would like to thank you for making a server with this map. Being a Canadian Expat that live in the middle east it make a bit special to fly an Hornet with the 425 colors to a place I know quite well. I post into the suggestions sub forum because a few things if you may. In mission we keep receiving a message and in the briefing also it say Kalba City on DP23, I think it should say Dibba Al Fujairah since Kalba is a little more south in Sharjah https://www.google.com/maps/place/Kalba+-+United+Arab+Emirates/@25.0389556,56.2524445,11.19z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x3ef4f99211cc5fef:0xff824a7c7100f828!8m2!3d25.0510381!4d56.3488562 I read that all ships are a valid target but I don't have any point showing or message when I destroy them. Is it normal or I do something wrong? On a different note just to let you know, that it rain more in the 3 days that I play on the server then the 18 years I've been here Again thank you for all the work you doing for us to enjoy o7

    *****CONGRATULATIONS**** to 104th_Dozer and 104th_Tiger, who today have passed their Carrier Qualification, the final exam in a 104th cadet's training programm. While showing mastery of their aircraft they passed with flying colors! It has been a long time in the making and well deserved! Welcome to the family, Dozer and Tiger, we hope you both will feel at home! Never forget: Honor. Excellence. Integrity. ;-) This was also a special Carrier Qualificaton for the 104th Phoenix VFBS, as it was the last time that we used the Su-33 for it (we will show you pictures of our farewell in the next post). In the future it will be done of course in either the Hornet or the Tomcat. We say thank you to the beautiful swan, that helped cadets for over 12 years to get their wings in the 104th Phoenix VFBS. Fare well, Su-33! S!

    A proud day, welcome to both of you! We win together and we lose together, honour, excellence and integrity! This means responsibility and ownership, ownership of your own actions and behaviour. Ownership of your own mistakes and failures, OWN them and learn from them, never look outside the cockpit for reasons of failure, you are responsible for every decision made in that aircraft and its fate is your responsibility. Find success in failure! If all you do is get angry when you get killed you are never going to improve. Question why you failed and evaluate solutions, be honest with yourselves, if you think you are hot shit but keep getting shot down all the time.... you are not hot shit! Never allow your ego to believe you are better than you are. You ARE going to fail ... a lot! What will decide if you make the jump from 'good' pilots to 'great' pilots is your ability to learn from these failures or not. Be there for your wingmen because they will be there for you, never run from a fight and leave your wingman in the shit, he has a duty to protect you and you have a duty to protect him, your wingman will die for you, you better make sure you are ready to die for your wingman! Remember that you are part of something that is bigger than yourself no matter how good you get, no pilot is bigger than our Squadron, YOU are part of the 104th, the 104th is NOT part of your programme! This means you are to conduct yourself like a professional when online and show respect to your opponents. Remember that everything you do and say represents our Squadron and all the work that has gone in to it since 2006, disrespecting this 12 years of heritage with inappropriate behaviour is seriously bad for your prospects as a 104th member. Never test our resolve on this, it will not end well for you. LISTEN TO WHAT YOU ARE BEING TOLD! Every winged member of this squadron is someone you can learn an incredible amount from, do not waste this opportunity, learn from everyone you fly with, ask questions, breakdown successes and failures and evaluate. Your journeys have just started welcome on board gentlemen, you're in for a hell of a ride! Mav

    Name Calling / Abusive Chat

    Apparently dear Friends, it has become some kind of attitude on the server that name calling in the chat is ok. Let me tell you, as firmly as I can: It is not! The older admins haven't been flying much lately on the server, but we will order every admin now to ban everyone for abusive name calling / chat for 3 days - no exceptions. The DCS Community is a very mature community, and we have always seperated ourselves from other gaming communities because of that. We don't mind friends joking with each other, but accusations and abusive chat in any kind or form have no place here. Even if you get teamkilled, even if you think that the other guy behaved like a complete a-hole, set an example, be smarter, because if he is abusing you, he will get banned, and you will keep enjoying flying on our server. Even if no admin is present at that time, tell us about it, make a screenshot, and we will deal with it as soon as we are back online. We like to swear, too, we always did, but there is a place for everything and the context and the tone make the music, I can't stress that enough. If you just go by ordinary manners and logic, I am sure you will find no doubt in that. We know also that most of you don't mean harm, that it is a competitive environment - all that is fine, but all that competitiveness can exist without abusive name calling and chat, too. Like I said, we're not stupid and we won't now ban right and left if someone uses a foul word, but like I said, I think you all understand what I mean. That being said, we also like to thank most of you who excell at brilliant and friendly behaviour on our server and in the community time and time again, for your patience that you show newer guys, for your attention towards each other and your preparedness to help so generosly as most of you do. We couldn't be luckier with any other community and we are very grateful for that! Thank you all, again, and S!

    System deployment score

    we are looking into this, mate, thank you. As for the PTT, sorry for the late reply, but unfortunately we have to enforce it in order to protect our clients. you know how it is, 99% are doing it right, but because of that one idiot who spoils it for everyone, we have to put on the shackles. Nothing is more horrible than mouthbreathers ingame lol, and believe me, prior the PTT enforcement, there were plenty and there still are. It really shouldnt be a problem to free 1 button for it, everyone else can, and I am not preaching from high ground, I flew the Logitech 3d extreme pro for more than a year, and I had no problems using PTT. If you want, it is up to you, but pls understand, that this rule will not change anytime soon. The majority unfortunately still uses shitty mics. S!
