DCS World 1.2.15 and MiG-15bis!

Both DCS World 1.2.15 and DCS: MiG-15bis are now available.

You can download DCS World 1.2.15 using the automatic updater or download the installer files here.

DCS: MiG-15bis can be purchased from DCS E-shop.

DCS: MiG-15bis product page.

We also have a series of videos to help you get started with the MiG-15bis here:

DCS World 2

We are nearing a point where DCS World 2 will be available for a public, alpha release. The primary work remains with sorting out some issues with the unified .exe (no longer will the front end and simulation end operate as two separate exe). We have also been using this time to give mission builders better control of AI weapon jettison, afterburner use, and restrictions of when they can attack air and ground targets. Now that the 1.2.15 update is released, the team will be focused on final testing and preparing DCS World 2 (and the NTTR map) for its debut.

 

NTTR1.jpg

DCS: Nevada Test and Training Map

The actual art construction (elevation mesh and textures) of this map is more-or-less done with the remaining work being performance optimization and getting the AI units to operate within the map correctly (such as airfield taxi operations). As with DCS World 2, once 1.2.15 is released, this map will be the focus of testing to get it ready for its alpha, public release.

In parallel with the new map, Red Flag campaigns for the F-15C and A-10C are in active development.

 

l-39c_1.jpg

DCS: L-39 Albatros

The next aircraft to be released by Eagle Dynamics will be the L-39C and the L-39ZA. Both aircraft are in a later stage of development with most of the work now focused on the various cockpit systems and flight dynamics. This will be a fully-realized module with mouse-interactive cockpit and professional flight model. Although it will not be available at launch, two-players in the same aircraft is planned for the L-39. We see this as an important feature, not just for the L-39, but other current and future DCS modules.

 

P47_1.jpg

DCS: P-47D Thunderbolt

The next World War II aircraft for DCS World will be the Thunderbolt. As you can see by the images in this newsletter, the cockpit is quite far along and overall project status is moving along nicely. Once the Bf 109 K-4 is out of beta (good progress as you can see in the 1.2.15 preliminary change log), progress on this module will further accelerate.

DCS: Spitfire IX

Following the Thunderbolt, the next of our World War II aircraft will be the glorious Spitfire IX. While not as far along as the Thunderbolt, aspects of it are underway as evidenced by the early cockpit renders seen in this newsletter

DCS: F/A-18C Hornet

No, it’s not a myth. Work on the Hornet continues with great progress on the air-to-surface radar. The real beam mapping mode is just about done, and once complete, the team will start work on the various sub-modes. This has been a critical new technology that had to be developed from scratch for this project.

Included in this newsletter is the current status of the 6 DOF cockpit. It is still very much a work-in-progress but project development is now accelerating.

 

Hawk05.jpg

Hawk for DCS World

We are working closely with VEAO Simulations on preparing the Hawk for sale on the DCS e-shop. There have been a few remaining bugs that need to be resolved, but once complete, the module will be available from the DCS e-shop. In the meantime, you can download the VEAO installer here.

Just read it myself. Puts DCS F/A-18C into more perspective. I'm glad they included current renderings of the cockpit, progress is looking really good. I was also glad to hear about the progress on AG radar. 2015, maybe even late summer, still looks possible but if it takes longer then so be it.

 

I don't follow the WW2 aircraft as much, but progress looks good in that area as well.

 

DCS2.0 an NTTR is right around the corner folks. I'm confident we'll be flying over NTTR in Mar.

I will be glad when they make that step for alpha public release. At least we'll know we're a step closer for public release...hopefully soon after. :noexpression:

Funny, I must have missed that statement in the newsletter...

 

Didn't say anything about being close either, but still...to me, good progress made with the air-to-surface radar technology.
