Lots of good stuff, but yeah, try to stay away from mods when hosting, anyways, al is good now they have been removed from my WWII cover the B-17's invasion at Normandy..

The VIRPIL Controls team would like to invite the community to participate in the creation of a new line of control panel/button boxes!
VIRPIL Controls is feeling excited.

Hello VIRPILs!
The VIRPIL Controls team would like to invite the community to participate in the creation of a new line of control panel/button boxes!
We are looking to develop control panels in 4 distinct categories:
★ Jet Aircraft
★ Piston Aircraft
★ Helicopters
★ Spacecraft
We will be running a competition where members of the community can submit design proposals for control panels in these categories. Every participant can send in an unlimited number of entries for any category. All entries must comply with the design requirements which include:
★ The design must fit inside the enclosed case.
★ All controls and features can only be located on the top panel.
★ Panel labelling and LED implementations are permitted.
★ A description of the design choices and exact functionality of the features implemented.
The competition will be broken down into multiple stages:
In the first stage 10 applications for each category will be selected by the VIRPIL Controls team.
In the second stage these applications will be compiled and submitted for community discussion and voting. Three finalists will be brought forward from each category.
In the third stage, the VIRPIL Controls team will review the finalists and select the winners from each category - there will be an additional “Community Choice Award” which will be awarded to the entry which won the highest amount of votes in the second stage.
3D models, drawings, diagrams or sketches are accepted in any format, however applications sent in SolidWorks compatible formats are preferred.
All entries must be sent to with subject “Application for Competition”. Please also include confirmation of the submission category. *
IMPORTANT: It is necessary to study the dimensions of the device and all control parts (buttons, switches, etc) which can be found here:
Competition Dates:
1st Stage: from 5th August, 2019 to September 15th, 2019
2nd Stage: September 16th, 2019 to October 15th, 2019
3rd Stage: October 16th - 29th, 2019
Announcement of the Winners: October 30th, 2019
The winners of each category (jet aircraft, piston aircraft, spacecraft and helicopters) will receive a 500 EUR gift voucher to use on the VIRPIL Controls webstore, and a final production device from their category! **
The 7 first stage applicants who do not pass the community vote will receive a 10% discount code to use on the VIRPIL Controls website, and the 2 finalists of each category who were not selected will receive a 20% discount code!
The Community Choice Award will receive a VPC WarBRD Flightstick (base and grip)!
We are incredibly excited to work with the community on these new devices, good luck!

FA-18C radar and needing updates
How to switch fast between air targets?

Lots of threads on DCS forums about radar not yet fully functional.

as usual when I am trying to dogfight, others too, these issues make it very difficult. I know it is Beta.

With computer SSD update info 07-25-19
Asus Z170 3.4/3.9 CPU
Gigabyte 1060 6GB ram
16GB high performance ram
DCS setting Video and performance on High settings
New 512GB SSD in C: drive with Win10. DCS (Open Beta) on DCS H: Drive SSD 256GB.

Launch DCS from Desktop. Start Caucus map start Practice server, jump in F/A-18C airstart with weapons.
Total time from desktop to flying and hosting: 3 minutes.  (0 seconds +/0)
FPS avg: 30+ (was up to 35 fps as it floated while flying).

*Also have 1TB Sata Hard Drive with other programs and files.

Anything to know before moving C: Drive (Win10 partition) to SSD drive ?
Using cloning software for the move of C:
Maybe by late next week I will install the new SSD (ordered 512GB SSD) to replace C: Drive C:drive is currently a partition (300GB) of a 1 TB hard drive, which has both Windows 10 and data.)
I will take it add it to D: using partition software.
The SSD will be 512GB C: drive.
The hard drive 1 TB will be D: E: F:
G: single drive
H: (only)
1)Sturmovik BOX
2)DCS Open beta

(back to C: (SSD) has DCS  release version.)

Total 1.75 TB (0.75 TB is SSD)

Plus 4 TB (USB backup and storage Hard Drive)
