You guys are having fun with DCS Black Shark. I want to try it. :rotfl2:

Dowly 05-24-10 07:55 AM

Yeh it's fun. Just takes some time to get used to. Your first challenge is to fly the darn thing, you gotta remember that helo in it's natural state is out of control. Fortunately the Kamov has pretty nice autopilot functions that keep the helo somewhat under control, but even with them on prepare to crash alot in the beginning. Once you learn to fly a bit then you have to keep an eye out for the dreaded vortex that will suck you right into the ground if you're not awake.

After you can fly the thing, then it's time to learn to shoot stuff which is luckily much easier.

PS. Don't be scared of the number of switches and buttons, you don't need but a fraction of them to fly and shoot stuff. :yep:

Arc & I

Circling around as Arc lands

Refuelled and ready to go

On the return trip we came under fire from the coast; enemy convoy. Arc here going down, I followed soon after (had spent all my flares just for the fun of it earlier :oops:)

Arclight 05-24-10 08:52 PM

Bloody Shilka. Told ya there was a convoy coming through soon, didn't I? :lol:

Making some waves on the way home after wiping out insurgent facility.

I yelled "missile!", but yeah, doesn't do much good if he ain't got no flares. :haha:

Task Force 05-24-10 08:55 PM

Lol, I really need to get back into blackshark...

So, when do youall fly? never done Blackshark MP.

Arclight 05-24-10 09:14 PM

Just occasionally, but could organize it a bit more. I just threw together a mission with several target sites and a convoy heading for your base, fairly straightforward. Nice to practice a bit, without those frustrating things like an enemy helo or plane blowing you away (Shark barely has capability to engage helo, none for fixed-wing).

Could post in BS thread when I'm running a mission. Regulars now are Dowly and Lionclaw, 4th slot available, so feel free to drop in... guess I'll add a few more slots in case we need them. :hmmm:

SgtPotato 05-24-10 10:22 PM

Bought Black Shark! :rock:

Arclight 05-24-10 11:05 PM

Good. Now learn to fly all over again. :D

Dowly 05-25-10 03:27 AM

And we can let you know thru Steam when we fly too. :salute:

Lionclaw 05-25-10 03:36 AM

What usernames do you have on Steam? Tried searching but no results. I've got the same username on Steam as here.

Dowly 05-25-10 03:52 AM

Potato = [DST]Sgtpotato
Me = Dowly (the one with alien avatar)
Arclight = Arclight (look for an top view of B52(?))
Task Force = Task Force (look for an avatar of some WWII german(?) tank)

Also, join the Subsim group. I think many of us are in it. :salute:
