Default 2020 Chinese New Year Mini Update

Hello everyone,

We've been less active and quiet during the past weeks, since the Chinese New Year is around the corner and our members were busy with families, boss and alcohol.
Therefore, the bug fix slowed down.

We will re-focus on JF-17 after the holiday:
  1. bug fix for better game experience
  2. improve cockpit model/texture
  3. more liveries and skin template
  4. start the dev of AAR and will try our best to finish it before this Fall

The major dev/feature of JF-17 has been finished, and we need to wait for a more completed A/G radar API provided by ED. Thus, more effort will be on bug fix by our avionics team.

Besides, to make Mariana Map with better combat/battle experience, we've decided to add a med/long ranger bomber, more navy units for China Asset Pack:
  • Bomber xxxxx
  • CV-16 AI
  • J-15 AI
  • Type-071 Amphibious Transport Dock AI
  • Type 093 SSN AI
  • Sovremenny Class Destroyer AI
If we have more resources and time, we will consider more units (Type-63 tank AI etc).
Actually, this was discussed with ED one year ago for the upcoming Pacific map.
If you find any other units that suitable for Mariana map, please let us know.

Drink, drunk, drink, drunk, drink, drunk, grrrrrrrrrr .....

Hey!!! Do you want to know our plan for next flyable module?!
We've already started the discussion and investigation:
  • Unfortunately, most members of our team now suffer from Big-MFCD PTSD, internally, we decide not to make a class cockpit module next;
  • externally, we want to choose an aircraft with unique design; regarding type, fighter would become lowest priority.

We've already provided ED the list of our interested aircraft to develop next, in order to avoid any potential problem/trouble/conflict.
After the feedback/comments from ED, we will then begin the data collection and research, and then make decision. We will keep you updated.
We can say that it's a long march and will not affect the polish of JF-17, so please keep calm .

Sorry, I cannot wait to keep on drinking.
See you in Feb!

Wish everyone a happy new year and success in 2020!!!

The time off is well deserved! I’ll admit from having a little bit of big MFCD sickness myself

Now on to looking at what might be this steam gauge unique design not a fighter

And hmmm only operational H-6 I know of with that number of letters is H-6X1.....unless it’s a JH-7 type.....

Enjoy yourself!

Ganbei! *downs his baijiu*

Glad to hear that you took some time off, well deserved.

As for aircraft, as I understand it you're not allowed to make active-duty PLAAF ones, but how about a Soviet Tu-16 'Badger' (predecessor to the Xian H6) ? Two engines are within the technical limits of the game, first bomber ever in the game, appropriate for plenty of scenarios - certainly a very different kind of module.

Great job guys. Wow, adding the Liaoning and AI J15 is huge news for the Marianas map, same with the bomber. Enjoy Chinese New year and keep drinking.

Something new and "odd/weird"

side-by-side cockpit? SU-24?


TU-28/H-5 Beagle?

IL-28 / H-5 Beagle would be amazing. First twin-engine cold war bomber in DCS. Sadly, I can understand if people would not like it very much.

Q-5 sure sounds like fun. Didn't Pakistan own a bunch of those too?

Anyway, enjoy the new year, may the red envelopes be numerous and fat!
