      VG Server Standard Maintenance & Updates - Monday, November 2nd 2020   10/23/2020

      All VG Game Servers including TS3 will be going down for standard maintenance and updates on Monday November 2nd, 2020.  The Falcon BMS Server will go down as well, but for a shorter period (less work there) - any pilots flying at the time will be asked for ETA of RTB, and server will be saved after they land and before shutdown.   Downtime is estimated to be less than 4 hours, but could be shorter (or as long as 8 hours) depending on a number of factors.  TS3 may come back online, only to go back offline shortly after, so expect this until it is announced to be completed.  Please consider the VG Discord Server's Voice Channels as an alternative to TeamSpeak 3 if it goes down on you and your friends.
      Request any technical help in the VG Discord from Nyther (aka 8-bit).  Cheers!

There's no such thing as a runway too short or a slope too steep...

So i revised & updated  [REVISED][UPDATED] Tips Rarely 'Tipped' , cos i had some time away from home, so i figure i might as well bump it with a post that kills the myth of short/bad/difficult runways and steep slopes that trans isn't 'down with'.

Thanks for the Bamyan Warthog takoff tutorial. I also use the left hand hill as a ski ramp. Works with a tad less rudder input.

Did you use negative throttle to glue the Huey to the hill, or is it just done via pitch up?

Dropping the collective.... Increasing the collective... 

:acute:

90% of terrain in PR can be considered LZ material as long as you know how to control the collective, or rather, negative throttle lol.

 

There are some areas of some maps that are just hopelessly too steep to land on because you can't react fast enough no matter your sensitivity to correct your course before you crash either forward, or backwards depending on which direction you're facing when you land.

I do the same thing lol. Now that they removed OOB penalty on Bamyan, no worries when flying the A-10.

 

P.S. Great videos XOR. Keep it up!

Not a bad way to tackle the Banyam airfield but it is still a crappy air field, the point is we should be able to take off in the length of the runway and not need to resort to using hills as ramps, I noticed you weren't game to try and land it coming from the proper direction rofl!

I usually land slightly diagonally, cutting across the runway into the taxy way about 50m from the beginning of the runway, so to save time taxing back around to rearm. If you do it right, you'll come to a stop right inside rearm area. Trims a good 2 minutes off the process of RTB for ammo and/or repairs.

Did anybody find out how one can vertically land the Harrier reliably? I dabbled around with it but sometimes it just wants to go for the drink nose first.

Hug the ground a low as you feel comfortable. Slow down to around 180 before nosing up to a near vertical climb. Wait for the jet to slow down to near zero before letting the nose back down to level. You should hear the change in flight mode, then you're in VTOL.

Everything golden said, minus the near vertical climb....

*excuse the verbosity, I figured i might as well make a video to summarize VTOL for  anyone with an aversion to VTOL shit in PR, for this topic*
