BOX and Tacview
« on: July 03, 2019, 06:42:39 PM »
BOX is Awesome..  was flying with Olds last night in Combat Box.. attacking AAA and shipping..  Had Combat Box all to ourselves for about 45 mins.

Came across this and wanted to share... you can analyze your flights and all that jazz, just like TOP GUN.. program is called Tacview and it doesn't work with 1946, but it does with "modern" sim games...

So...  being playing around with Tacview this morning..  Lots of goodies..

Won't work on-line but could be a good training tool for COOPS! and Wingman Tactics...

It tracks tons of stuff,...  the one graph in the screenie tracks G's.. but there are lots others.. like Potential vs Kinetic Energy....  speed and alt graphs for different A/C etc..

You can track range and Angle off.. as you see in the modeling, so good for gunnery etc...
and it plays off of the game track....
