[MISC] Hawk's YS Mod Repair Pack

A while back, I made a thread dedicated to documenting known errors with YS mods. I've decided that, instead of just writing them all down, it would be even better to make a new pack dedicated to fixing them. This includes removing errors by editing LSTs, removing problematic lines and comments from...

Re: How do I connect a PS3 Controller to Ysflight?

I'd also recommend using DsHidMini to make it compatible with XInput. Never had a single problem trying to connect an XInput controller to YS.

Re: USAF Fighter Operations

I'd like to make one thing clear. You haven't seen me in actual combat. You haven't seen my skill level. And I haven't seen yours. You probably haven't seen yourself fighting an actual person in a while. The only judgement of my skills was the time I did a combat exercise in an A-10 with a full hea...

Re: USAF Fighter Operations

Good lord, this is embarrassing. I hate to be that guy, but since no one else has done it, I'll just lay it all out: Coop (PilotC) is a veteran of ours who moved on from YS in 2019. He hasn't been a regular pilot in YS for several years now, and is just having a laugh by posting fake combat reports ...

Re: My observations on air-to-ground attacks

It's about angle, not altitude. If you've ever played Battlefield and been annoyed that you couldn't aim a tank's cannon high enough to shoot at a heli, think the inverse of that.

Re: Back from the dead

I was actually thinking about messaging you before! You and Gunny were my only fellow Louisianians on HQ back in the day, and I wanted to know if you'd done anything else with that Lafayette Regl map that was contained in his mods archive. Glad to see you're indeed still kicking, and keeping with a ...

Re: 4th Aerial Wing "Scorpions" Recruitment & General Information Thread

Since no one actually from the squad has come in and said this, I'll do it: 4AW has been gone since early 2021. There's no point in applying for them anymore.

Re: YS Headtrack thing?

Violet explained how I did it above, but I'll point out that I only recommend trying it if you fly with a stick. Otherwise, you're sacrificing mouse control for not much benefit. I stopped using mouse look back in 2020 in favor of the view hat switch on my stick. As for actual tracking movement, the...

Re: entire world map?

Wasn't the violent shaking caused by 32bit floating points or something like that? Didn't we get YSFlight 64bits on the demo 2017 release? Hasn't this been fixed? 2017? Where we're going, we don't need 2017! Jokes aside, that does mean that the only thing stopping us from having a true full-world m...

Re: entire world map?

The problem with YS as it exists now is that, the larger a map gets, the more it'll glitch out and violently shake itself around. Even our largest existing maps, like Pat's Guam to SoCal, have this problem at least a tiny bit. One modder, H3C, ran into this exact issue back in the 2000s when he made...

Re: VF-66 Recruitment

Even if people are thinking about joining, limiting yourself to a forum, in an era when those are declining on the whole, is such a bizarre idea. It's been standard practice for years now for YS squadrons to have their own chat servers instead, currently on Discord, and on TeamSpeak before it. (To p...

After nearly a year of inactivity at 2UCW, things are looking a bit different in the YSFlight world. We now have a new group of players that are interested in taking on the challenges of YS combat, going as far as to start a new squadron in VF-66. With this being the case, it's only appropriate that...
