    DCS Weekend News 7 February 2020
    By MigBuster,
      New Dreams for a New Year… and Beyond! Thank you for your passion and support 2020 and Beyond Trailer Aircraft, terrains and carrier operations   Everyone at Eagle Dynamics is working hard to make the start of this decade one to remember. While 2019 was a monumental year for DCS. We have more exciting things in store for 2020. This includes new aircraft such as the P-47 Thunderbolt, Mosquito, Mi-24P Hind, as well as the continued development of the F/A-18C Hornet and F-16C Viper including air-to-ground radar, Forward-Looking Infrared (FLIR) sensors and enhanced missile dynamics and behaviour. We will also see detailed aircraft carrier operations with DCS: Supercarrier, and new maps like the free Marianas Islands map and The Channel map. We will also be releasing updates to the A-10C Warthog and Ka-50 Black Shark (including a free cockpit update coming very soon). Most of the Eagle Dynamics team will be focused on DCS World core to improve performance, lighting, and weather. We will also launch our new damage modelling engine which initially will be for the WWII aircraft. The team is also working hard to improve airfield air traffic control, more life-like AI, new AI units, and a dynamic campaign system. Our 3rd party partners will also be hard at work in 2020 with the F-15E Strike Eagle, MiG-23 Flogger, OH-58 Kiowa Warrior, Syria and Falkland Islands maps, and more. Later this year, we are looking forward to announcing an eagerly awaited aircraft for DCS World. This will be a highly detailed and complex aircraft representing a huge milestone.

    Il2 DD Update Dev Blog 238 "Yak-9 & Yak-9T"
    By 76.IAP-Blackbird,
    Hello everybody,   This week we continue telling you about the new Collector Planes, now is the turn of Yak-9 and Yak-9T. Yak-9 was the most mass-produced Soviet WWII fighter, more than 14,000 were made on three factories in Moscow, Omsk and Novosibirsk in total. The production started during Autumn 1942 and peaked in 1944, but continued well after the war ended - it stopped only in 1948. They were used in combat en masse for the first time during Kursk battle in Summer 1943, but several documents reflect smaller scale combat deployments of the new fighters on other fronts of 1943, including the Battle of Kuban.   Yak-9, while being an evolution of Yak-7 design, had significant changes: metallic spars instead of the wooden ones, bubble canopy with an improved field of view, forward-and backward-facing armored glass pieces. The fighter armament was standard - 12.7 mm UBS MG and 20 mm ShVAK gun. It was powered by M-105PF inline engine.   We also recreate a special model of this fighter, Yak-9T, that was developed to counter enemy bombers and was also used against lightly armored targets. A powerful 37 mm NS-37 gun with 30 rounds ammo reserve required more space, so the pilot's cockpit has been moved back to make more room for it and to maintain the pitch balance. It's interesting to note that while this gun was much more powerful, the total weight increase was just 40 kg and the plane aerodynamics did not change for the worse noticeably.   We'll start the work on Yak-9T immediately after finishing Yak-9 (the exterior 3D model of Yak-9 is nearly complete while its cockpit 3D model and physical model are in the works and show good progress).       You can discuss the news in this thread

    Il2 DD Update Dev Blog 237 "Hurricane"
    By 76.IAP-Blackbird,
    Hello everybody,   It finally snows in Moscow while we continue the work on the new aircraft. Including the new Collector Planes for both the Western and Eastern fronts of the war - Yak-9, Yak-9T and Hurricane. Today we're ready to show you the progress achieved at the moment for the British Hurricane, which will have 5 (!) different modifications in our sim: Hurricane Mk.IIa: basic model armed with 8 х 7.69 mm Browning MGs; Hurricane Mk.IIb: the number of MGs has been increased to 12; Hurricane Mk.IIc: this model had 4 x 20 mm Hispano guns; Hurricane Mk.IId: anti-tank model armed with 2 x 40 mm Vickers-S guns and 2 x 7.69 mm MGs; Hurricane Mk.II with Soviet weaponry that was installed on the Lend-Lease aircraft: 2 х 12.7 mm UB MGs, 2 x 20 mm ShVAK guns and Soviet bomb and rocket holders. We hope that this nice selection of the Hurricane models suitable both for the Western and Eastern front would be a great addition to IL-2 Sturmovik series:         You can discuss the news in this thread

    Falcon 4 BMS 4.34 Update 2 released
    By MigBuster,
    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    on behalf of the entire BMS development team, I am happy to announce that the latest iteration of the Billion Soft Falcon 4.0 total conversion modification - Benchmark Sims 4.34 U2 - is available for you to enjoy as of RIGHT NOW!

    BMS 4.34 U2 requires a legit installation of a Falcon 4.0 (all older and newer versions are accepted alike, i.e. Microprose, Hasbro, GOG, Steam, Retroism). The check is performed both at setup time and every time you start BMS. If no valid installation is found, BMS will exit with a corresponding error message.

    U2 is an incremental update on top of 4.34 base + U1, so you need to have the BMS 4.34 Full Installer package and Update 1 available on your PC. You can both update your existing 4.34 base + U1 installation as well as perform a fresh 4.34 base + U1 + U2 installation from scratch, as you like. See the installation instructions below for details.

    This mod may not be used for any commercial purposes. Any such use may constitute a violation of the intellectual property of Billion Soft (Hong Kong) Limited and the non-commercial Terms and Conditions under which Benchmark Sims make this mod available to you.     NOTES: — The build number string in the Falcon UI will read "4.34.2 (x64) Build 20805" after the update. — The shortcuts in the start menu and on your desktop will NOT be renamed to U2, they will still read "Falcon BMS 4.34" after the update. — If you have any questions or found bugs regarding the change log items please always! reference the revision number, e.g. "(r12345)". — The 4.34.0 manuals remain valid. — None of the .ini or .cfg files will be changed. U2 FIXES & IMPROVEMENTS: — CTD safeguard in case of bad PT crossing definition in DB. (r20778) — CTD fix for a CTD during BMS exit. (r20771) — CTD fix on Choongwoon. (r11869) — Fixed BMS Editor messing up data when exporting / importing objective data. (r20767) — TvT: Set "Lock Client MP" flag for all ground units, relocated Awacs, Tanker and Jstar squadrons, VALIDAC.ACT file adjusted accordingly. (r11887) — All Airbases: Checked and fixed lettering & crossing. (r11869) — Fixed F-16 RSAF cockpit RWR issue. (r11868) — Corrected stations+ils.dat file due to wrong ILS frequency for Taegu airbase. (r11867) — Fix for cloud restriction being incorrectly applied in deterministic / probabilistic weather. (r20779) — Fix for g_nFairCloudRestriction and g_nPoorInclCloudRestriction not reducing the number of cells displayed. (r20779) - Fixed interpolation issues with fog and skyfog. (r20801) — Fix Power Engine P1 vs RPM Idle interpolation chart. (r20780) * This bug was responsible of a wrong deceleration of our current model vs HFFM in the high supersonic region for GE engines. — Fixed an error at manual flight fragging in campaign due to bad team assignation. (r20781) — Fix flights being automatically started in flight if the Take off Time or TOT was moved 1H backward in the package page. (r20781) — Fix error of "no Slots available" when moving Take off Time or TOT despite slots being obviously available. (r20781)
