Hey everyone,

 

To give you a head start learning operations around the boat, we have attached a preliminary copy of the DCS: Supercarrier Guide, created by Bunyap.

 

Please note that this is work-in-progress and we'll be adding a chapter on using the LSO station, some adjustments to the radio messages, and some tuning of the deck crew hand signals. However, this should get you started.

 

Thanks,

Wags

Hi all

 

After purchasing DCS: Supercarrier, you may have questions of how to install it, select a mission to fly from it, and takeoff in your first experience. This Quick Start video is designed to walk you through those first steps into virtual combat naval aviation.

 

 

 

 

Planned release in May 2020

 

Thank you

Hi all

 

With the upcoming release of DCS: Supercarrier later in May 2020, we offer this unscripted video instruction for creating a mission using DCS: Supercarrier.

 

We hope it will be helpful for you mission creators out there.

 

 

Thanks

In preparation for the release of DCS: Supercarrier later in May 2020, my friend Jar from the Virtual Stingers Squadron has assisted me with an updated tutorial on Case I landings. These are your daytime landings with clouds above 3,000 feet and visibility greater than 5 nm. We hope you enjoy this video and encourages you do try one of most fun things you can do with an aircraft carrier.

In a recent DCS: Supercarrier update the functionality of the upcoming Air Boss station and Briefing Room was described. Both features will provide interactivity that requires changes to the ViewCore subsystems. In order to smoothly transition between the Air Boss station, Briefing Room, and LSO station, we have created a special Camera Route Editor and an advanced view system that allows custom bookmarks to be created on the carrier deck and other locations. This adds camera movement route options to help create spectacular scenes for video creators.

Over the past six month we have been working on a human motion model with intelligent behavior for infantry and deck crews. We have started with the deck crew, and we will scale it to infantry units. Both logics will receive two new behaviours: Obstacle Avoidance and Dynamic Reroute according to the situation. Re-routing behaviour is based on a path search algorithm with any-angle path planning.

In Dev1a.png

Obstacle Avoidance is based on the Optimal Reciprocal Collision Avoidance (ORCA) method used for holonomic robots with several restrictions on linear and angular speeds, linear acceleration, and discreteness of animation. The first phase of the development is complete and cases must now be considered for when aircraft are passing by, directing aircraft to and from a parking position, avoiding moving aircraft, different states of service and interruptions, etc.

Earlier Case III video:
https://youtu.be/n4d92zwyb04

In this DCS: Supercarrier and Hornet instruction video, we’ll review operation of the Automatic Carrier Landing System (ACLS) and associated Link-4 datalink system that allows two-way communication between the carrier and aircraft.

ACLS provides guidance to the Marshal Stack, the carrier, and three different levels of landing assist. Mode 1 provides hands-off recovery, Mode 1A allows manual landing with ACLS HUD and Link-4 indications, and Mode 2 allows manual control with just “tadpole” guidance.

ACLS is only available for Case III recovery operations.

Dear all,

we apologize for any confusion the upcoming inclusion of ACLS to the Hornet may have caused. A primary reason for the development of DCS: Supercarrier was to provide the most realistic carrier operations ever done for a PC flight simulation. Key aspects of this include the new Link 4 datalink and Beacon systems specifically created for the Hornet (just recently completed) and the new ATC radio communication system.
While the ATC radio communications system will remain a unique feature of DCS: Supercarrier, we are investigating moving Link 4 datalink and Beacon (BCN) from SC to the free carrier. This would use the existing communications for the free carrier of simply messaging inbound. When we have more information on this, we look forward to updating you.

Thank you
Eagle Dynamics

An important and challenging feature of DCS: Supercarrier has been the development of night operations. Over the past year, we have been working on several aspects that will soon be released to Open Beta. These include new deck crew animations that utilize the new skeletal animation

In the previous Automatic Carrier Landing System (ACLS) video, we looked at using this in conjunction with DCS: Supercarrier. In this video, we’ll discuss how to use the Hornet ACLS with the free, CVN-74 John C. Stennis carrier comes with DCS World.

The steps are:

Contact the carrier on the correct radio frequency using COMM 1 or COMM 2 and select the ATC option. From the ATC selections, select Inbound. Enter the correct Link 4 frequency from D/L. From the HSI page, enable ACL. Fly a Case III as before, and at 5.5 nm (should be gear down, flaps down, hook down, and on-speed) select AP (autopilot) from the UFC (Upfront Controller) and select the CPL option on the UFC. Once coupled, you can press the paddle switch to uncouple and manually fly the approach on Mode 1A.

Rather than couple, you may also elect not to and fly manually in Mode 2.
