Re: ESST, METARs and weather in DCS

At least here in the US a lot of this discussion depends on if the airport is reporting the weather using an AWOS/ASOS or automated system or an ATIS which can be digital or in most cases is recorded by the tower personnel. For instance Nellis in RL is a recorded ATIS or a real person talking ve

Re: ESST, METARs and weather in DCS

I have updated the test results again. This time, the DCS weather is shown as well. For example: [code]DCSWeather(altimeter=747, turbulence=0.0, temperature=32, wind_ground_speed=0, wind_ground_dir=0, wind_2000_speed=5, wind_2000_dir=20, wind_8000_speed=10, wind_8000

Thanks for this Etcher - based on my professional experience: - The complete date is not mentioned, just the time the METAR was made / valid from - Cloud base/ceiling is mentioned in sequence. I.e. it is not delayed until the end. - Clouds are pronounced ( e.g. FEW 6000ft ) "FEW A

ESST, METARs and weather in DCS

Hey guys ! As some of you may know already, I'm guilty for the Discord bot that's been pestering people about for the last few weeks. It's been a project of mine for a little while, the ultimate goal being able to remotely manage a DCS server on a computer somewhere in the c

A-10 Landing Speed

This is a repost of answers Pete "Ollie" Olson, a retired A-10 pilot gave to DCS Q&A. I'm reposting here for reference, including the link to the original ED forum thread. [quote=Ollie] For the serious A-10 enthusiast we calculated our landing speed every

Hi from Belgium!

Hi everyone ! I'm Boris, c/s etcher, 33, from Belgium (UTC+1), and I usually speak French. My apologies in advance for all the mishaps I'm going to make in English =) Here's a quick introduction about myself and how I ended up here, although I do hope we'll meet soon.

Maintenance Hangar: F-5E

Validated as of version DCS World 2.5.2.20143 The F-5E has a setting in the controls option called "Throttle Range". This button allows you to prevent the throttle from progressing to afterburner (i.e. limiting to Mil power). I

Understanding Mixed Reality

A good read for the interested. The terms will continue to be misused, I suspect. Still, as a combat flight sim pilot, the prospects of all technologies on the spectrum are interesting.

A note on 'trainers' in DCS

I thought it important to express my reasoning on the decision to employ a unified training platform in the Virtual 57th, which at the time of this writing will be the F-5E. The decision was borne out of goal oriented posture. In other words, I did not start the decision with "I love the F-5E,
