With the early access release of the Viper, we are now focusing on the most pressing bugs and desired new features for the Hornet and Viper. We have been reading all your feedback, and this is the biggest factor in determining our priorities. While not a complete list, here are our priority items for the Hornet and Viper in our roadmap (please note that the items listed are not in any sequential order):
Slave to waypoint / target point
Line of sight indication on the HUD
Cursor Zero and Snowplow modes
Track While Scan (TWS) mode
Release of the AGM-62 Walleye
Dynamic launch zones for JDAM and JSOW
Pre-Briefed (PB) mode for AGM-88 HARM
Correct the ability to pull 30 G by disabling the G-limiter circuit breaker as a cheat
Automatic Carrier Landing System (ACLS) mode
Smaller flares option that can be up to 60 on the aircraft
Complete external skin and provide a template to the public
Centerline fuel tank
Add wing flex
Visual damage model
Add pilot body to cockpit view (VR)
EEGS Level-5 and Lead Computing Optical Sight (LCOS) gunsight when target is locked on radar
Identify Friend or Foe (IFF) system
Corrected AIM-120 Dynamic Launch Zone (DLZ) that correctly accounts for A (active) and T (time to impact) times
Track While Scan (TWS) radar mode
Air-to-Air Radar to include Control page (set PRF, contact fade, etc.)
Targeting pod (target range indication, SP/CZ/TGT indications, azimuth indication angle indication [waterline with line], GRAY indication, north arrow, M mask indication).
If AIM-9 and AIM-120 are loaded, selected aft on the dogfight switch should select AIM-9 and pressing forward should select AIM-120
Emergency jettison button
Ability to create and modify steerpoints form the UFC
Steerpoints must auto-sequence when option selected from STPTY DED page
Toggle missile type select with missile step button for more than .8 seconds
Lock indication on the RWR is missing. It should be a circle. At missile launch, then the circle should flash.
Complete CMDS manual mode programming.
When a contact is locked while in NAV mode, changing to AA mode should not remove the lock.
Only a long press aft on the DMS switch should turn the HMCS on and off. Currently, up, right, and left also have this function.
