If you take a single dumb bomb in your central pylon. Then you can access the CCIP/CCRP sight modes with Guided bombs. It is stupid you have to do that, but does work.
Can you elaborate on this? I’ve had no issues firing an AAM
if you turn on the pods laser. Then you get a green marker on the target (/whatever your pod is aimed at), that apperas outside the cockpit HUD. I think its strictly speaking a bug, but really handy for tracking both air and ground targets
It is indeed that gem. Just tested the laser marker. In VR, it floats about in random positions… so it’s rendering incorrectly. I’m going to try and force the 2D bit of WT to be the same resolution/aspect ratio as the VR eye panel, that can sometimes correct such things.
I restarted the game, messed with the post FX settings, and the half-rendered planes are a bit easier to spot, but genuinely, if I tilt my head side to side, they vanish and reappear. I’m going to have to fly like a bobble head. I’m guessing it’s to do with pixel availability (a line vs a dot as I tilt my head), but wow…
(Interestingly, it appears not to capture in screenshots)
To keep this on topic, this is 100% a trick that can be done on the Tornado Gr1 and is just as beneficial. handy trick for CCRP too as the camera snaps to the target points, meaning you can see markers outside the HUD
the rendering issue seems to be worse with this update before planes would render in and out at very long distances, but now at medium range, it also seems to be the case and when your at dogfight range just being able to visually id the plane seems harder now.
https://youtu.be/l1BokR_K_Mw?si=GIvXL1C7NkvABJq7 here’s a cool interview with an F3 pilot. At 12:41 he starts comparing ways of acquiring targets with aim-9 on Phantom vs F3, and says that on the f3 the seeker of the missile could be slewed by a lever. I found it interesting but I don’t think this could be implemented to the game in any practical way
It could be easly. IRL tornado has a second pilot, that does these things, but i wt you fly alone, so it is not possible for someone else to do this. That is where a feature we already have in game comes in. HMD. It could be implemented with no problems, as in planes like tornado HMD was not mounted, due to a copilot.
Might be all the edge the Tornado F3 to help with the minor uptiers. Im actually rather looking forward to using a HMD jet (im guessing Gr9A will be our first) , as I only play britain, i’ve never used the system and it sounds like it could be quite fun and handy to have in a fight
