Hi, You were indeed banned for having a high ping. Unfortunately, DCS is such that clients with a high ping can cause the game to crash on the server. With the levels you were at, you had to be removed for server stability. Please talk to one of us on TeamSpeak where we can verify that your latency and packet loss are at acceptable levels. Upon satisfactorily doing so, we can lift the ban. Cheers, Rory.
Hi, Can you let me know what your ingame name was at the time? I had to ban two people quickly this evening (because of ping) that nearly brought the server down - I imagine you're one of them. Cheers, Rory.
Welcome Adam! I must apologise again for that teamkill! I was tracking that Flanker for a while, but never saw you nearby. When I foxed the Slammer, it was only about two seconds later that I saw you close for guns! It was a nice take-down! My hear sank when I saw you - it was a slow motion moment of "oh, dear, I know what's coming!". Glad you found the courage to come onto the forums - we don't bite, honest! I too came from a heavy FPS background and dabbled in DCS for some years before popping onto the 104th server. The best advice is to come onto TS when you fly - it makes for a much more engaging and immersive experience! Again, welcome, and may all your missiles fly true! Rory.
Many thanks for the warm welcomes, gentlemen. It has a been a thoroughly enjoyable time as a cadet, but it is great feeling to have those carrier quals behind me! Congratulations also to Highway. Thoroughly deserved, buddy! Much kudos to you for the stellar work you've done as an instructor. It was greatly appreciated, Jon. S! Rory. PS - A quiet nod to Ed for being one of the few people here to correctly capitalise the F in my name
I saw these guys at an airshow last summer and thought they were one of the best display teams. They went about their business very neatly, smoothly and without the pomp/fanfare of some of the other teams... I'm looking at you Patrouille de France.
Terrible quality photo from my phone, but I liked how they blurred together as one from my angle
Tornado would be cool. Harrier too could be a lot of fun.
Bombers would be nice for giggles
B-52 / B1 / Tu-160 / F-111
I also like the idea of more support based aircraft:
C-130: Rough in-field landings/drop-offs of troops/equipment/SAMS. Paradropping could be fun E-2: I really like the idea of an in-game player based AWACS providing a picture to the rest
EA-18 Growler: A dedicated jammer support craft could be a lot of fun, I think Not sure how it would work with the rest of the stuff, but would be interesting
EF-111: Anything 'Vark related ftw. Add some Electronic Warfare and it could be more interesting. What more can I say?
I too also want more helos:
CH-47: Same kind of ops like a Huey, I think, transport
AH-64: Same kind of missions as the Shark, but the different avionics or even multi-crew capability could be a lot of fun
MV-22: Kind of a Hip/Hercules hybrid from a mission point of view - could be fun
