Thread: New Nimitz Class Carrier

    It's out!

    I just found it in my modules. Tried two simple launches and recoveries in the F-18. The crew animations are amazing! I love how you have to "salute" to launch and the instructions for proper hookup. Lots to investigate but the first feel is really good!

    As a genuine carrier "nut" this is a long awaited dream for me...

    I still haven't taken the time to configure my controllers and successfully fly the Tomcat, let alone try carrier ops. Much as I'd like to have the Hornet (especially as I was with VFA-106 when they commissioned, 6 months before they received their 1st F/A-18D), I can't rationalize spending the cash on it right now. NC

    Also, I do admit to being somewhat lazy, when it comes to flight simming. P3D is easier for me than DCS. Not as complex.

    It takes some time indeed to configure and then learn to do even the basics in a DCS module. However, the satisfaction you get once things start working is massive. The Tomcat is amazing and so is this carrier. The animations of the deck crew are extremely natural. Combining "Jester's" chatter in the F-14 and following the launch and trapping instructions in the Supercarrier is a complete experience.

    Finally, the modelling of the sea, waves and ship wakes in DCS is leaps and bounds ahead of even P3D v5. It is real 3d waves and wakes, not just textures pasted on top.

    You have to give it some time and effort before starting to enjoy it.

    My point exactly!!!

    There is nothing like this in any other sim. Don't get me wrong, I love P3D and all the military and Navy models in there, that talented developers have put forward for us, plus the fact that you have the whole world to operate. However, the realism of naval and combat operations in DCS and this module is unparalleled so far. What you see in these videos is real and you can experience on your computer.

    After my 1st test on MP yesterday on the Supercarrier, it's going to be hard to go back to boat ops in P3D, which I was recently re-visiting and installing all my ships. Even in the Tomcat, my FPS were good on the PG map with 5 guys in the pattern.

    Yup. Renders P3D completely impotent. There's absolutely no circumstance I would ever go back to P3D for anything combat related. Even with the world terrain available. Simply not even a contender. Boat ops is so utterly immersive now, it's impossible to think it was any other way....I'm so impressed with this update. MP is VERY stable ATM. No deck sliding no issues.

    Those shots should convince anyone on the fence. Very cool to watch the shooter after going into tension, having to look around the canopy bow in the 14 and wait...just need something on my desk to punch me in the chest for the cat stroke!
