So, we plan to update you with new version of these products next week. As always, please feel free to provide us problems you may encounter in DCS World 1.5 and L-39 using our dedicated forum at:

Much of the team is now focused on getting DCS World 2.0 and the Open Alpha release of the Nevada map ready for launch in late November 2015. There are a few items we are still cleaning up, but all looks on track.

Nevada, Spitfire cockpit and WWII German bundle




DCS: NEVADA Test and Training Range map Open Alpha

Today we are very excited to announce that the DCS: NEVADA Test and Training Range map Open Alpha is nearing release. A massive amount of time and effort has gone into this project and we are looking forward to having it in your hands very soon.




Take advantage of the pre-sell price now, before the savings vanish in a short time once the Open Alpha is released.


DCS World War II Update and Sale


DCS World War II continues to move forward following the release of the P-51D, Fw 190 and Bf 109. These modules have set a gold standard for simulated World War II combat aviation.

We are now though in the final stages of preparing for the release of our next DCS World War II module… DCS: Spitfire Mk IX! In the tradition of our previous three warbirds, the Spitfire will embody a professional level flight model, accurate cockpit systems, highly detailed external model and cockpit, authentic sounds, detailed damage model, animations, and effects. Our engineers have created an amazing flight model based British archives of authentic wind tunnel tests.




In addition to the Spitfire, we also realize that a World War II combat theatre is more than just the planes, it is also the combat theatre. In parallel with the aircraft, we are also hard at work on the Normandy map as well as many period ground units like tanks and other vehicles. We are committed to creating the most authentic recreation of World War II air combat ever done.


To commemorate this news, we are offering a special bundle deal of the Fw 190 and Bf 109 modules. Get this bundle now with a 20% savings, plus you can get an additional 30% savings using bonus points. This can add up to a 50% discount!






Please note that all DCS modules will work seamlessly in DCS World 2.0. However, when we move to DCS World 2.0, some module prices may increase. So, take advantage of these savings now.


Thanks and have a wonderful weekend!

DCS World Weekend News - December 4th, 2015




Dear Pilots!


It’s been almost a week since the release of DCS World 2.0 and the Open Alpha of the DCS: NEVADA Test and Training Range map. We are very happy to see the overwhelming positive response to the quality of the map and the level of enjoyment it is providing you. We do though realize that many of you are having problems downloading and installing DCS World 2.0 and the Nevada map. Our engineers are working to improve this and we are adding new file servers to improve this situation. Thank you for your patience. The Alpha release of the Nevada map has been very useful test for us to plan later, large releases.




DCS World 1.5 Update

Although a lot of the public focus has been on DCS World 2.0 and the Nevada map this past week, we continue to update and improve DCS World 1.5. Once we further debug version 1.5 and we make the Caucasus map compatible with DCS World 2.0, we will merge 1.5 content into a unified version 2.0. Next week though we plan to release a 1.5.2 update.


DCS World 2.0 and Nevada Map Update

Over the past week, we have been keeping a very close eye on bug reports and have noted them in our bug tracking database. We are now in the process of addressing those bugs in order to bring the map from Alpha to Beta. We expect to bring you the first Nevada map update next week.


Here are some great screenshots of Nevada




Weekend Sale

This weekend’s sale will begin on Friday, December 4th at 1500 GMT and last until Monday, December 7th at 0900 GMT. For some great Nevada map action, an F-15C, Su-27, A-10A and Su-25 bundle will take 40% off the price of each individual module, plus you can take off an additional 30% using bonus points. This can provide you a 70% savings!

Have a great weekend,

The Eagle Dynamics Team

DCS World 1.5.2 Update



Today we have updated DCS World Open Beta to Ver. 1.5.2 with the following primary changes:

  • Stability improvements
  • Continued work on Chinese localization and textures
  • New Mi-8MTV2 features like anti-icing “SECTION X” lamps and current heating for windows
  • Fixes and improvements to the L-39C.
  • F-86F improvements, including improved input for clock, canopy controls, rudder switch and fire warning system
  • MiG-15bis improvements, including: fixed marker activation over NDBs and adjusted G-suit performance
  • A-10C improvements, including fixes for no elevation data for init position, manually entered coordinates of init position not changing, and RWR switch being set to OFF when starting hot or from runway.
  • Corrected NDB and VOR positions.
  • Fixed memory leaks.
  • Updated and corrected Encyclopedia.
  • Corrected performance of Super 530D and Magic 2 missiles.


DCS: L-39 Albatros Update



Work continues on the L-39 with the primary focus being on the ZA version. Once the ZA version is complete, we will also add the new training missions and move the L-39 out of beta.


A Review of DCS Versions


At this time we have three different versions of DCS World available and we understand that some of you may be a little confused. In order to provide more clarity, here is what you need to know:


Ver. 1.2. This is the current released (stable) version of the game that includes all modules except the Nevada DLC map and L-39. It however uses our older graphics engine.

You can download it here: http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/downloads/world/1.2/


Ver. 1.5. This version includes all the same content as Ver. 1.2, but uses the new graphics engine. At the end of December 2015, we plan to move Ver. 1.5 out of Open Beta and make it the new released (stable) version. At that time, Ver. 1.2 will no longer be updated and supported.

You can download it here: http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/downloads/world/1.5/


Ver. 2.0. This version uses the same, new engine as 1.5, but ONLY works with the Nevada DLC map at this time. We are continually updating the Nevada DLC map now using this version. For now, Ver. 2.0 is being used as a testbed for the Nevada DLC map.

You can download it here: http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/downloads/world/2.0/


Once versions 1.5 and 2.0 are debugged and working well next year, we will integrate them into a common Ver. 2.0 release (stable) version that will include both the free Caucasus map, the Nevada DLC map, and future maps. At that time, we will drop Ver. 1.5 and Ver. 2.0 will be the only supported DCS World version.


Downloading and Installing the Nevada Map



Over the past two weeks, we have seen a lot of questions regarding how to download and install the Nevada map, for those that purchased it or got it free as part of the A-10C Beta program. For those that missed the answers on our forums, here is a review.

If you purchased the map through our e-shop at: http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/shop/terrains/

Install DCS World 2.0 and open the Module Manager. Please look in your Available DLC / Terrain page for the listing of the map with an install button next to it. If you do not see it, please run Repair DCS World 2.0 Open Alpha from your Windows Start Menu / All Apps / Eagle Dynamics and then look again.


If you believe you purchased the A-10C Beta prior to February 21st, 2011, please visit the Nevada DLC map store page at: http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/shop/terrains/nttr_terrain/

On this page, you will see a button entitled SHOW SERIAL NUMBERS. Please press this button for your free key.

DCS Weekend News Update - December 18th, 2015




A-10C: The Enemy Within Campaign, Now Available




Created by “Baltic Dragon”, The Enemy Within is a story - driven campaign that puts you in cockpit of an A-10C Warthog, sent as a part of small US detachment to Georgia in order to help contain a growing threat from a terrorist organization calling itself the “Caucasus Liberation Army” (CLA). As the story unfolds, you will be faced with a variety of challenges, including close air support, precision strikes, combat search and rescue, anti-ship strikes and even air to air combat. Striving to be as realistic as possible, the units featured in the campaign are based on their real-life counterparts. It also uses a sophisticated radio control system, meaning that you have to tune your on-board radios to the correct frequency to be able to hear more than 670 voiceovers included in the campaign. There are also over 80 pages on FRAGOs (fragmentary orders, based on the ones used by US Air Force), 50 pages of briefings and 40 maps and recon photos designed to help you successfully finish all the 21 missions.

Hi guys,


I know you are all anxious to get your mittens on the M-2000C and we are getting close. As said in the newsletter today, we started internal beta testing just today. While the team is finding bugs, there is nothing too serious so far. In addition to testing the module though, there are two other big items that need to resolve: First, we are awaiting final missions and a quick start manual from RAZBAM. Once they are delivered, we should be good-to-go content wise for an open beta. Second, we need to assemble new versions for both 1.5 and 2.0 that allows the M-2000C to function.


Given this, an open beta release of the M-2000C next week is quite feasible, but we cannot give an exact date given that we just started testing the module.
