Tacview Glideslopes for DCS World

Originally done by forum user TekaTeka back in 2006 for LOMAC but have not been updated as far as I can se. The glideslopes in TekeTeka’s version did not fit the ILS glideslopes in DCS World Caucasus map and there were a lot of new airports. I have removed all the airports located on Crimea from the file and added all the new airports on the Caucasus map.

 

 

To install, copy the “DCSGlideslopes.xml” file to the hidden “ProgramData” folder on your system drive. Your system drive is normally the C: drive. The file structure will be like below:

 

C:\ProgramData\Tacview\Data\Static Objects\DCSGlideslopes.xml

 

The glideslope cones are angled 3 degrees and have 0.2�‹ height (+/- 0.1�‹) and 0.4�‹ width (+/- 0.2�‹).

The length is 17km which is the approximate distance to the IAF.

 

Even if the installation process is just a simple copy of the folders I supply 3 screenshots to show the glideslopes in action so you can see how they supposed to work. This will help you identify them working in your installation.

 

Credit to TekaTeka for the making the LOMAC version I used as base for my work.
