  1. Oups, sorry, I didn't saw that... Thx for your work Taz !
  2. Just installed the last version on the OB 2.7. The dark smoke when the vehicles are on fire is simply beautiful, but the visual effect of the flames is greatly accelerated. Am I the only one who has this strange effect?
  3. What would a Mi-24 simpit be without its fan? So...done !
  4. I think that we don't have to expect anything before Jun 21. if it is available earlier it will only be a bonus. We waited a while for the 2.7 and in the end I think most people are very happy with the result. The same goes for the Mi-24, we still have to wait but I am sure that we will have a result that will live up to the expectations...
  5. The right panel is now connected...I just wait for the release of the module...
  6. The "vehicles on fire" effect was nicely improved by ED with the 2.7 but for sure the smoke column are too small and still unrealistic. Waiting for the update of your mod Taz...It's a "must have" Thx for your time and your involvment in improving the visual appearance of DCS !
  7. Well, I just tested the 2.7 for an hour. Result: I'm really happy with the result. Bravo ED for the work, it was worth the wait! For the clouds it's clear that it gives a nice environment without massive fps loss, which everyone was a bit afraid of. Some improved unit models, I think of the SA-6 and the BTR-80. Error seen from the Reco instructor, the SA-6 radar. ED calls this the "Long Track". The "Long Track" is a completely different radar (not modelled in DCS). The correct NATO name for the SA-6 radar is "Straight Flush". Effects on destroyed vehicles are indeed improved, it's now a beautiful blaze...too bad the smoke column is still far too limited. This will undoubtedly be reworked by the community with a future mod. It feels like rediscovering DCS... Advances like this are just what we need!
  8. Wirring the cockpit is still an ongoing process... Arduino + leo Bodnar BU0836X + LB BBI-64 + Home made boards made by a French friend. Kilometers of wires have been already connected to the countless buttons and switches... The SPU-8 is fully functionnal (currently used when flying with the Mi-8MTV2), as well as the fire-fighting panel which is now equipped with real 2KNR buttons The left side of the pit is nearly finished, I am currently working on the right front and right panels (AC+DC power + Defroster panel + Air conditioning panel). To be continued...
  9. As usual, great job Mole ! I like the sound of the 3D printer on your video...sounds familiar to me ! Héhéhéhé
  10. New clouds = Update DCS 2.7 foreseen on 07 Apr 21...but still subject to change...
  11. Already a huge thank you to Alexander and his team who have been working for months on this project. What we have seen today in the video is already very interesting. Finally, after many months and years of waiting for this module to evolve, we can see how much has already been achieved. And what we can already see is that this module will be simply magnificent, especially when we have an unlimited admiration for this helicopter. I have already watched the video 6 times, I never get tired of it. I'm always the first one to be impatient and sometimes lack patience, but I have no problem waiting several more weeks for the early access (I have still plenty of works to do in my Mi-24 Simpit...like wiring all the switches and buttons) Thxxx ED, Thxxx Alexander
  12. Passions are sometimes heighteined to excess...
  13. Pre-orders soon....Mmmmmmm I like that ! But I have to find the definition of "soon" for ED...
  14. Personnaly, I don't see anythink special...General screenshots as released previously... A Wags movie on a cold & dark startup procedure could make my day !
  15. Thx a lot for your communication Bignewy, really appreciated. Such information should be present in the WE Newsletter so everybody could read it
  16. I agree with your point, you are right, but we don't ask for a date. ED has announced that some modules should be ready during Q1, others during Q2 and it's fine for me. I think that everybody can live with such information. But my point is, for exemple, that ED has annouced the release of the Mosquito before the Hind. We don't have any news on the mosquito since weeks. Same for the OH-58, we don't even have information on the current status of this module. Everybody know that the 2.7 is coming and is still currently expected in the coming days...as announced by ED. Is it still the reality or can we expect a delay as it is the case for the AH-64 Apache pre-order ? Thats' just simple questions on which ED can give simple answers...
  17. Tomorrow, I hope to see a Newsletter with a more specific calendar and more clear announcements like : Release of the 2.7 version ? Release of Mariana Islands ? Release of the Mosquito (no news since a very very very long time) ? News regarding the CURRENT STATUS of the OH-58 Kiowa ? News on the Mi-24P development (what was done since begin of 21 and what should be the next step) ? For sure, it's a lot to ask, but it must be said that some of the topics mentioned above remain a great mystery to most of us... So, Thxxx in advance ED
  18. New clouds will normally come first with DCS 2.7 : two more weeks Mariana Islands should be the next release Hind and the Kiowa on the same time...commercially it would be a very bad choice so most likely one will be before the other. Hind announced in Q2. Q2 start in 15 days...
  19. The Alexander's team, who produced the Mi-8, is currently fully focused on the Mi-24P module. Alexander announced a few weeks ago during a live stream that the Mi-8 multicrew will come later, after the release of the Mi-24P module... Multi-crew for the Mi-8 in DCS: "I would very much like for it to happen, and will personally ask my bosses to allocate resources for this task".
  20. I do the same as you, flying en enjoying the Mi-8 ! And in addittion It give me more time to finish my Mi-24 Simpit
  21. Q2 begin in a little more than 2 weeks but I don't expect a release during April. The Apache Pre-order is now reported later as previously announced (Feb 21). The 2.7 version should normally be available for end of March BUT Bignewy wrote yesterday that if there is a change in the date we will be informed (personally I already feel a postponement). Q2 for the Hind is a three month period until June and this probably gives ED a less restrictive time frame than a date. Now is it certain that the Hind will be available in Q2? Nothing is less certain... We know that everything is subject to change or postponement... The newsletter of this weekend announced once again only vague things...they are working but when will all this be available? Well, that's still a big mystery. We know that ED has a bad tendency to not respect the schedules as announced... Everything else is just speculation and we can only wait passively...
  22. My real Mi-8 SPU-7 connected to DCS via an Arduino Board Sorry for the wrong orientation of the movie https://youtu.be/cI_8djqOK6s
