Community A-4E September 2018 Update


Hey all, we’ve got a short update this month on account of having nothing new of significance for you visually. But that’s a good thing, because it means we’re nearly done art-wise! In lieu of screenshots, please enjoy the first video in our instructional series on flying the A-4 in DCS!



Instructional Materials

Below are a few pieces of info to check out before you strap the A-4 “on” for the first time. Before launch, I hope to complete even more informative videos going forward.


A-4 NATOPS: While not all systems are modelled, this manual was our primary source material for building this mod and should be more than sufficient for operating the aircraft.


Startup Video: An introduction to the startup procedure and taking off in the A-4.


Carrier Landing Video: An overview of a Case I carrier landing in the A-4. An additional video covering both Takeoff and Landing will come soon.


Additional videos are in the pipeline, examining weapons use and the air to ground radar.


Important Clarifications and Disclaimers


Unlike ED and 3rd Party produced aircraft, our aircraft has not been optimized in the model and texture area. I play on a GTX 780 and AMD 9590 CPU (8-Core, 4.70 Ghz) and notice a slight performance dip between ED cockpits and the A-4 on Medium settings. We’ve tried our best to avoid this; however it has been a challenge.



We’ve been working hard to manage bugs as we’ve gone along, however there are still some very challenging ones that may allude us post-release. Below is a list of known bugs originating from our bug tracking in Github.


  • Cockpit Mirror material not working (Made a mirror color for now)
  • Interior red light switch frozen
  • Present position indicator on nav panel doesn't align the number wheels properly
  • Huffer isn't flush with the ground when aircraft is at rest (Being worked on, but presents a modelling challenge
  • Nav, Tail and Anti-collision lights bleed through the body


Release FAQ

Is it really free?

Yes, it’s really free. :thumbup:


When will it be released?

TBD, still targeting the end of October.


Where will the download be available?

Google Drive appears to be the method of choice for now. The files, which still need to be trimmed, currently sit at 803 MB unpacked in the mods folder with all of our liveries. We may explore dropbox instead; however Google drive currently serves us well in other capacities. A new forum thread includ9ing this info will be created upon release, as Gos holds permissions to this one.

Phantastic job, you did there. With all the ups and downs we need to thank you so much for seeing this through.

With the F-14 on the horizon and an A-6 Intruder, this is the icing on the cake, no... more like the perfect tempered and brewed coffee to go with the cake.


How many of us will go "Jester" and "Maverick"? Lift your hands! :D
