Default Thank you ED for the new AI!

I'm actually impressed, there were big dog fighting and defensive differences I noticed in the patch today, I almost thought my AIM-54 had been nerfed, and when I found myself in a scissors with an AI Tomcat I was quite taken aback, it didn't feel like an AI, it felt more human than it ever has before.


At range, they circle to notch you, apply sensible countermeasures and defend Phoenix's with impressive lack of repetition and consider kinematic defeat more readily by flying cold. They recommit properly without getting stuck in "Perma-defence mode".



I expected nothing today and only flew the same I normally fly, and couldnt work out why the AIM-54 success rate was far lower than usual with a lot of dropped tracks.


I haven't managed to actually "test" AI dogfighting. It's too late now but I want to see if it tries that same old vertical nonsense, but reviewing three hours of tacview and a lot of merges I have to say I just dont think so. When you gain angles on AI before, it would launch up into the vertical and do these repetitive overpowered vertical loops you couldnt catch. Saw none of that tonight.


Honestly DCS felt like a completely different game tonight, and I'm really super excited that there has been this level of effort in the core game.


Good stuff gents!

I'd be even more impressed if we could have some under the hood explanation what has been upgraded. I tested it yesterday and didn't see any difference. I'll try again.

You should try and read the changelog as well as the newsletter

This will give you some details regarding the AI changes, to which you inquired.



Cheers,

I did not notice any of those differences in the AI behavior mentioned by Pikey. The newsletter says that the AI changes should be part of this week's open beta, but I already have turned on the open beta on steam.

The only thing I have not tested yet is the AI for WW2 aircraft.

I'm curious about dogfight physics now. What used to irritate me about all the AI, even the WWII birds, is that they always had a >1 thrust-to-weight ratio and could outclimb you in all regimes.

Same. I am quite excited about the new AI changes. Hopefully it continues in a positive direction.
