All the flyables included in MAC will be the current standalone modules "downgraded" to a "Flaming Cliffs" level, so no clickable pits and limited / easier systems implementations controlled via keyboard shortcuts AFAIK

Any news or recent updates? I'm really excited to pick up this title. I want to get back into flight simulation and I just don't have the time to devote to DCS because of graduate school. MAC is going to fit me fine.

MAC will be perfect for you if you are busy.

Thank you.

Will MAC have joystick support or will it be purely mouse + KB only?
Will the J-11A remain in DCS or will it be removed upon launching MAC

FMs should all be PFMs now I think, not sure if any plans to redo cockpit textures are planned right now.

I'm kindof hoping that this will open the way for a few additional aircraft - particularly as they'll be a bit faster/cheaper to model and the lower fidelity modelling of systems means that some newer aircraft might appear.

That said, I'd like to see this have the option of compatibility with DCS... and I'd like to see incremental improvements in sensor modelling (e.g. acquisition problems) still make their way into it even if the avionics are simpler... It'd be nice to know more.

And thank you for responding. Can't wait to see what tricks you guys have up your sleeves. Modern Air Combat will be a day one purchase for me.

It will be interesting too see what work has been done on the existing FC aircraft. I dipped my ties into DCS by purchasing FC3 not because of "easy" modelling but because of the aircraft it had on offer.


I would hope that the Su27 gets some update love as it is looking a bit out of place compared to the other cockpits there. Also would hope, that even though it is not a study based "Sim", the aircraft represented have the same flight models, and avionics modelling as their more detailed clickable cockpit brethren.


I'm getting into DCS for the Jets but like the simplified approach. There is still a ton to learn with the avionics, flight handling and so on. Not to mention being a VR pilot, I am in a process of trying to map my X52 Pro with as close to possible across the board mappings so that it is easier to jump from one aircraft to another.


Pity View Centering (button 5) does not seem to be mapable as it is quite needed when my headset suffers from gyro drift.


Anyway, DCS is performing quite well and MAC looks like a purchase from me too. BAck to learning LOL.
