    No doubt inserted in the newbie's forum as it would soon vanish down the waste pipe in the D D shark pond where it belongs.

    Drop the landing gear, before hitting the '0' throttle and she behaves beautifully.

    ... I should point out that I don't know what E D produces but I do know that the SPDIF output from my MOBO is fed from the audio circuitry on the board so any DTS encoding is done by that equipment, the same on-board audio equipment that is decoding whatever E D is producing and providing the direct 5.1 surround connectors on the rear of the MOBO (clustered with the TOSLink connector).

    Interesting - prior to re-equipping with HDMI stuff my previous home cinema system used fibre-optic connections and the AVRx decoder produced good quality 5.1 from Dolby and DTS sources. Although originally an electronics engineer I have not followed things very much after I moved into education many years ago so I am not going to argue with you. EDIT - Just checked and it seems that my mobo (Maximus VIII Hero) uses DTS Connect over the SPDIF so that explains how the decoder is actually decoding 5.1 and not just producing simulated surround. Still prefer the direct outputs though. :) Further Edit: Just realised that I never mentioned that I am running W7 and there does seem to be some issue with W10 and the "audio stack" (whatever that is) so my contribution here has been worse than useless, sorry @OP.

    You might be interested to voice support in this suggestion thread: It might do no good but it can't hurt to have people ask for it.

    I understand that if you put a Cobra III into one of those spinney star things, 100Lys is very easy. As to the Covra III? I have no idea.

    There have probably been a million words written about the virtues of the Cobra III and is possibly the most flown in ship from the game. Fantastic ship, if you are looking for a fun way to play. As to the lack of space: The Cobra IV answers that one, just fine.

    No that is wrong, as Viper says you can only hire crew for fighter specific tasks (them piloting or to allow you to pilot a fighter). Flic is one of the Engineers that you can gain access to by jumping through some annoying hoops means of various methods. You can have real-players join your ship for non-fighter roles, that's the multiplayer thing, NPCs can't fit in that niche.

    I have a 5.1 surround system, connected via the surround channel output connections on the rear of the motherboard and the spatial presence is really good. I have also tried using the SPDIF fibre-optic connection and used the decoder in my system to do the surround - that works well but the direct channel connections sound better to my ear. So E D provides good surround audio signal for your machine to process and output - but make sure the DTS surround for headphone in E D options is disabled (as Duck says, that produces a stereo output from E D).

    Have a REP to help you own your way to posting else where ... Welcome to the forums and to ED ... Chief

    Lets break it down as simple as we can .... some people like ED, some people love ED, and some people either do not like it or plain hate it. I get all this as it's pretty rudimentary. And I even get the suggestions and it would be better IF threads. But what I do not get (unless it's just plain TROLLING) why any one would stick around the game or the forums IF they truly hated the game. Perhaps the old phrase of "Misery Loves Company" is the reason. Some seem to be so miserable about the game that they want everyone else to be just as miserable. Or are they just trying to be informative, in their own sharp way? Anyway, I too like ED. It's not perfect (in my opinion) but I do not believe I've played a perfect game yet. Chief

    Main point - size. Secondary point - switches/buttons. Size - The Warthog throttle is built like a battleship, the base box takes over a large part of your desk and the throttle handle height makes it uncomfortable after a short period because you are basically holding your arm up in the air. If you have it side-mounted (like it is designed to be) then this is not a problem. If, like me, you use your desk for other things and don't have a sim-pit then the size is a real pain. - The CHPro on the other hand has a smaller footprint and the linear-movement handle is at a lower level so you can have your arm resting on the desk. The Warthog is all metal and the CHPro is a fibre-glass / epoxy construction which is much lighter but really robust. Switches / buttons - Warthog: The throw switches need modifying to work as expected when used outside the DCS AC-10 simulator game (or a work-round used). The pinky switch feels horrible and is prone to failure. Unless mounted to the side of your thighs,...

    They already are scaled to your combat rank (ish) and the AI spawned ships are scaled to yours too - mission AI have different rules. I'm not saying it couldn't be "better" but just saying there is some of what you are on about.

    This is abject nonsense - MoM has to "hobble" her AI's capability so that inept buffoons like me can survive.

    Detailed Surface Scanner (DSS) only comes as 1C (as does the Advanced Discovery Scanner {ADS}) - I hope you have not just thought to engineer A grade Sensors.
