Default My interview with Polychop's Spiderpig

Hey there.

I had a chance to sit down with Spiderpig from Polychop and ask him a whole bunch of questions about a wide variety of topics including Polychop and the Gazelle. He also gave a presentation about working on the Gazelle and working on DCS 3rd party modules in general.

Here is a 13 minute interview excerpt just about the Gazelle (user's questions from reddit's r/hoggit):

Here is the full interview:

Here is the presentation he gave. The first 45 minutes is the presentation, and the rest is Q&A:

Big thanks for the Israel Flight Community inviting me to speak. Had a great time and met some great people who are passionate about flight simulators.

Thank you Polychop guys, I really appreciate your outstanding work. SA342M and SA342L are one of the best modules of DCS, especially having 2 models in one. The last update was awesome with the premiere of SA342L, this little bird is kick@ss with GIAT 30 cannon.

@Poly_Roie - Very nice stuff, too bad I couldn't make it!

Btw, about making the lua code private, you don't have to use DCS dlls, you can can also compile your lua file externally and then add it, DCS know how to read it, well when inserted into miz files it does.

Cool stuff. Really great background information on general module-making as well. Could do without the noise of the people in the background...
