Default DCS World - October 2014 Newsletter

DCS World 1.2.11 and DCS World 2

The team has been working very hard with long hours on DCS World 2, including performance improvements, visual effects, updated GUI, and a lot of debugging. However, it may not be ready in time to launch several new projects in November and December: Su-27 for DCS World, DCS: Bf 109 K-4 Kurfürst, DCS: L39 Albatros, DCS: MiG-15bis and Hawk for DCS World. Yes, lots of new modules coming soon! As such, we will release 1.2.11 to support these releases. In addition to supporting the release of these new modules, 1.2.11 will also include several bug fixes.

DCS: Europe 1944

Most of the work on this front is currently focused on the Fw 190 D-9 and the Bf 109 K-4. In the next DCS World release (1.2.11), the Fw 190 D-9 will receive a campaign and additional fixes. At that point, the Dora will officially be out of beta. As for the Bf 109 K-4, a lot of work has gone into fleshing out the cockpit system, tuning the flight dynamics and creating skins for it. We are still shooting to make the beta available to pre-purchasers in November 2014. After the Bf 109 K-4 goes into open beta, more of our World War II staff will be moved on to the Spitfire.

DCS: MiG-15bis

The MiG-15bis has been moving at a very fast pace and the flight model and cockpit systems are already in an advanced state. DCS: MiG-15bis is on track to be released in mid-December 2014. If you have not already done so, you may wish to take a look at DCS: F-86F Sabre in preparation!

Su-27 for DCS World

This update to the aircraft that started it all for Eagle Dynamics is also nearing completion. Although initially planned to just include a 6 DOF cockpit and Professional Flight Model (PFM), the team has also now added a greatly updated and much more realistic Heads Down Display (HDD) that includes both the HUD repeater and Tactical Display (navigation and datalink). The Flanker is on final for a November 15th landing.

DCS: L-39 Albatros and DCS: F/A-18C Hornet

Work continues on the L-39 and we are shooting to make the pre-purchase available in November and the beta available in late December. Work also continues on the Hornet, but there is no new news to pass along at this time.

New DCS Maps

Both the Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR) and Strait of Hormuz maps are making great progress. In fact, the NTTR map has been successfully integrated into DCS World 2 and is now undergoing extensive work to iron out issues. We hope to release the NTTR map in late December. This will be a free map to those that purchased the DCS: A-10C Warthog while it was in beta.

The images of this newsletter come from a very early, first pass of the NTTR map in DCS World 2. Please note that these are very much work in progress.

We often get the question of how big the NTTR map is and the area covered. We hope this image from the mission editor will help.

This map is focused on operations inside the NTTR. As such Nellis, Groom Lake and Creech will be the ONLY airbases of this map. The area of these airbases will also see the highest level of detail.
