This week we made the big step of updating the release, "stable" version of DCS World from our current DCS World Open Beta version. Not only does this bring all modules to the release version of DCS World (like the Hornet and Persian Gulf Map), but it also integrates many fixes and updates that have been addressed in the Open Beta over the past several weeks. Some highlights include:

  • Support for new campaigns
  • Added new USS John C. Stennis aircraft carrier
  • Implemented initial version of video memory manager
  • Added new OFFLINE mode
  • Added China Pack
  • Added moon light effects
  • Added Static Object templates
  • A-10C flood lights corrected
  • Updates to the Normandy 1944 Map
  • Added the new World War II Asset Pack units
  • Corrected tail wheel behavior for the Spitfire
  • Many improvements and fixes to the AV-8B Harrier N/A, M-2000C, MiG-21bis, C-101, SA342 Gazelle, Hawk T1, and Flaming Cliffs 3 aircraft

You can read the complete, lengthy change log in the dedicated thread.

Next week will bring an update that includes many additions and improvements to our Hornet.

DCS: Black Shark 2 – 2018 Trailer

Ka-50-Trailer.jpg

In 2011 we released DCS: Black Shark 2, which is still the most authentic simulation of the Russian Ka-50 attack helicopter. Seven years later, the Ka-50 is still one of the most fun and exciting aircraft to fly in DCS World. With the graphical and updated world (like the new tree system and grass) that DCS World 2.5 brings, the Ka-50 is better than ever.

DCS_BS2_Cover_400.jpg

To highlight just how great the Ka-50 is to fly in DCS World 2.5, we’ve created an updated trailer video. Later this year, we’ll also be updating the Ka-50 cockpit (and A-10C!) to use our very latest graphic technologies.

Just a note on versions:

The current version number of the 2 main development DCS worlds (Stable and Open Beta) can be checked here http://updates.digitalcombatsimulator.com/

The older 1.5.8 can still be downloaded and used but will not be updated anymore and neither will any modules on it. If you have an older PC then this is the best version to try.

If you are going to attempt 2.5 Stable or Open Beta then heed warning of the current minimum specs:

Minimum system requirements (LOW graphics settings): OS 64-bit Windows 7/8/10; DirectX11; CPU: Intel Core i3 at 2.8 GHz or AMD FX; RAM: 8 GB (16 GB for heavy missions); Free hard disk space: 60 GB; Discrete video card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 / AMD R9 280X or better; requires internet activation.

A question I want to know if the DLC of the A-10A has campaign mode how many missions it has.
Or just have individual missions.
I decide to buy this DLC to start from the beginning since I am new with respect to this type of simulator.

It is advertised as coming with a campaign and missions so you should get The Valley campaign with another 8 single missions going by what comes with Flaming Cliffs 3 (which is supposed to be exactly the same)

Note that the A-10A is a lite module and not a full simulator like the A-10C if that is what you are after.

Also note that Flaming Cliffs 3 is worth considering at $24.99 for this instead of buying single modules at $7.49 because it comes with the A-10A and 7 others:

DCS: Flaming Cliffs 3 (FC3) is the next evolution of the Flaming Cliffs series. FC3 features the F-15C, A-10A, Su-27, Su-33, MiG-29A, MiG-29S, Su-25T, and Su-25

           Modern Air Combat by Eagle Dynamics Coming this Autumn!
      Developed by the same studio that brought you the wildly successful Lock On, Modern Air Combat (MAC) brings you one game with 14 unique combat aircraft to own the sky! MAC aircraft include:
      F-15C Eagle. US air superiority fighter with 104 kills to 0 losses record. Su-27 Flanker B. Russia's dominate heavy air superiority fighter. Su-33 Flanker D. The Russian navy's carrier capable version of the Flanker B. J-11 Flanker B+. The Chinese version of the Flanker B, with R77 active homing missiles. MiG-29 Fulcrum A. Russia's widely exported light air superiority fighter. MiG-29S Fulcrum C. The modernised version of the Fulcrum with latest weapons and defences. A-10A Warthog. The USAF's massively successful 'flying tank', designed to kill ground targets. Su-25A Frogfoot. Russia's primary ground attack and close air support jet. Su-25T Frogfoot. A modernised version of the Frogfoot with enhanced sensors and weapons. F-86F Sabre. America's iconic top fighter during the Korean War. MiG-15bis Fagot. Russia's 1st generation jet fighter that opposed the Sabre over Korea. F-5E Tiger II. The US light-weight fighter that has been operational since the Vietnam War and operated by over 30 countries. MiG-21bis Fishbed. Russia's most successful fighter of the Vietnam war. A supersonic fighter that closely matches the Tiger II. L-39ZA. A Czech designed, two seat trainer that was then adapted to a light attack aircraft.  
      Each aircraft's flight model, sounds, external model and cockpit is recreated to an exceptional level of detail and accuracy. Great care has been given to offer scalable gameplay that suits your personal levels and wishes. This includes intuitive and consistent keyboard controls between aircraft, selectable difficulty settings, option for more forgiving flight dynamics, and even the ability to fly these aircraft with just your keyboard.
      As with Lock On and the Flaming Cliffs series, MAC is focused on east and west counterpart aircraft, and this includes such legendary match-ups such as the Eagle and Flanker, Warthog and Frogfoot, Sabre and MiG-15bis, and the F-5E and MiG-21bis. MAC is a blend of both east and west, and this allows you to re-fight historical conflicts from the Korean War to today, and to create your own "what-if" missions.
      You can generate an unlimited number of missions using the Fast Mission Creator and Mission Editor. MAC also includes numerous instant action and single missions, as well as campaigns for most of the aircraft and is fully compatible with DCS World online! There are no limits to content.
      In addition to the full Caucasus map, MAC also includes a limited part of our Nevada and Persian Gulf maps.
      Key Features of MAC:
      14 exceptional combat aircraft from the United States, Russia, China and Czech Republic. Shallow learning curve with consistent key controls between aircraft, and easy to fly with just a keyboard. Professional level flight models, but with option for forgiving flight dynamics. Play instant action, single missions and campaigns for most aircraft in single player or fly online. Supports Virtual Reality like Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality. Includes the Caucasus map and portions of Nevada and the Persian Gulf. Purchase MAC aircraft individually or as a pack at a reduced price. Flaming Cliffs 3 owners can purchase the MAC pack at a great discount. DCS World 2.5 Update
      This week we merged the current DCS World 2.5 Open Beta to the DCS World 2.5 Release version.
      Next week, 18 July, we plan the next DCS World update to include many fixes and improvements to the Hornet, DCS World 2.5, the Persian Gulf Map, and other modules.
      DCS World Dedicated Server Update
      With the launch of 2.5 earlier this year, we have been working diligently on an item we've been wanting to bring to DCS World for quite a long time: a dedicated server. It however was not until the launch of DCS World 2.5 was this possible, and hence the length of time this has taken.
      As a dedicated server, the software will not require any graphics rendering, so no dedicated graphics card will be required and there is no audio requirement. This all greatly reduced server load overhead.
      There will be a new web GUI to control the server. Operation of the dedicated server through the web GUI will operate much as the existing online server does now, but allow you to make changes remotely.
      We plan to release the dedicated server in Autumn 2018. Afterward, we will investigate adding additional features to expand its capability.
      Sincerely,
      The Eagle Dynamics Team

      http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/21790/f-a-18-pilot-gives-incredibly-detailed-instructions-on-how-to-actually-land-on-a-carrier
      Landing a fighter aboard a pitching and rolling carrier deck is one of the most challenging exercises in all of aviation. Just the idea of bringing a jet safely back to the boat, in potentially terrible conditions, after an already stressing mission has long captured the imagination of the entertainment industry and the public at large. We have even published a first-hand account of how this process occurs in the dark of night and how challenging mastering it can be. But now, thanks to Digital Combat Simulator—better known as DCS—the most realistic realization of this experience ever available to the public can be had for $79, or about 1/230th the cost of a single Hornet flight hour. And with the help of a former Hornet pilot, you too can learn to master this elite skill—or at least understand its complexities better than ever before.

      Interesting they have started this terrain....looks suspiciously like the Malvinas/Falklands although no sign of any of the aircraft that flew in that yet. So I guess chocks away in the Spitfire for a few years if it happens LOL

          Persian Gulf Map for DCS World, Now Available!
       
      We are excited to announce that the Persian Gulf Map for DCS World is now available for download. This is our first modern-day combat theater outside of the Caucasus map, and it will provide many interesting and engaging historical and hypothetic scenarios. To purchase this new map for DCS World, please visit DCS e-shop.
      Please note that the Persian Gulf Map early access release is only for DCS World 2.5 Open Beta. Once the map becomes final, it will be available in the DCS World 2.5 Release version.
      The Persian Gulf Map for DCS World focuses on the Strait of Hormuz, which is the strategic choke point between the oil-rich Persian Gulf and the rest of the world. Flanked by Iran to the North and western-supported UAE and Oman to the south, this has been one of the world’s most dangerous flash points for decades. It was the location of Operation Praying Mantis in 1988 in which the US Navy sank several Iranian naval vessels.
      The region also includes the vast Arabian Sea that is well-suited for combat aircraft carrier operations, and it will be an amazing area of operations for the upcoming Hornet and Tomcat. Be it from land bases in Iran, UAE and Oman, or from the deck of an aircraft carrier, the Persian Gulf Map offers a wide array of combat mission scenarios to prove your mettle.
