Hi everyone!

I have an ignorant question about the AC-130 (which is still in beta; I understand). I am absolutely floored by the combination of gameplay features AND attention to detail here. But this is all very intimidating, even by Arma standards!

Having browsed the Discord, asked the users, seen the Dev tutorial pictures https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/504013109158084628/744332935112687636/Sensor_Operator_Manual.png
- Didn't find out exactly what the different crew roles were for. At least in-game.

It could just be for mil-sim type roleplaying. But I am just curious. 

Again; thanks! Don't want to imagine how many man-hours went into the graphical details and PROGRAMMING of the plane's systems.

Thanks! currently the main functional roles are as follows:

Pilot - (sidehud view, cockpit mfd manipulation)

IR - Starts will all guns slaved to this sensor, can manipulate mission mark points

TV - can slave any gun to this sensor in flight, can manipulate mission mark points

FCO - has own sensor but no weapons, can manipulate mission mark points

EWO - has own sensor but no weapons, can manipulate mission mark points

 

The rest of the seats currently lack much, ingame usable, functionality

As much as I (complete laymen) noticed in-game, both seats had the same day/night/white-hot/black-hot vision modes. Or is there something else different about the viewing screens?

No, they're basically identical functionality wise, and share the same UI.

The EWO has a slightly different camera with continuous zoom and cross hair aiming reticule

Amazing mods thank you for your dedication.

Can some one make a tuto on how to adjust firing to hit targets ?

It's a bug, the player who is logged as an admin should leave the game and then your mission will start 😉

this should have been fixed in the latest update for the ac130 (check the changelogs) if this is still an issue please let us know what mods you were running

It's working, we were using the previous version of the mod on our last mission. Now, there is no more issue regarding that.

Thank you for this nice addition in the mod.

You guys are doing some great job with ac130! The sound! the sound of impacting munitions!!! As a tanoan rebel who just getting bombarded by that thing, it indeed make very scary sounds all over the surrounding area with every impact. The epitome of psychological warfare at it's peak, much much more effective than A10 brrrrrttt imho(that's as someone we had got bombarded by both during tanoan crisis)

Is there some documentation regarding the procedure of firing the AGM-65K? I've just been flying the A-10C and the AG IIR has me stumped as it doesnt respond to laser guidance. Does the weapon require a GPS guidance?

It operates the same way as the AGM-65D. The target needs to have some sort of IR heat generated (essentially have their engine on for a little over 10 seconds).

Is there any way of changing the liveries of the C-17 as I noticed they are still packaged inside the mod?

Hello guys and thank you for the amazing content you are providing! Your mods are definitely among my most favorites.

 

I've provided CAS with your F-35 and A-10 for a while and I noticed that the targeting camera is often having a hard time maintaing a point lock. It seems to get worse the faster you fly, sometimes it even loses track of a target completely and starts watching in the entirely wrong direction. This makes using laser-guided weapons quite unreliable sometimes and as much as I love flying your planes, this feels really unpredictable and makes it quite annyoing after some time.

I wanted to know if this is intentional/somewhat realistic behaviour or more a bug you are going to fix?

 

I also noticed that you hear a cracking noise in the cockpit of the A-10 for every bullet you shoot with the GAU-8. It sounds exactly like when you're taking shots.

This is not the case when shooting with the Wipeout, the RHS A-10 or the Firewill A-10, so I guess that there is a problem with the muzzle of your model? It might just be a few inches too close to the pilot seat.

Apart from that, I also wanted to suggest that you could add a HMD to the A-10 and the F-22 as well. As far as I know, they both use a Scorpion system in real life, which provides some basic information.
First, it would make the TGT pod head tracking of the A-10 a lot easier if you actually had some kind of crosshairs. Second, I feel like your F-22 is quite inferior in dog fights, compared to your own F-35 or other fighter mods, because you always have to line up with your target in order to get a lock on it.

Thank you and keep up the great work!

Had a fun little mission with friends single manning the AC-130 in support of a 10 man ground team. Lots of fun.

(obviously some post processing on the ac-130 to make it look even more real than it already does)

Hey Fuller, i noticed youre missing the Lesh Towing mod configs. It was there in the old USAF mod, (2015) i even found an old comment of yours saying it was made compatible back in 2015! Are you planning on adding them back?
