2020 Chinese New Year Mini Update


Recommended Posts

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 ..... :drink: :drunk:

 

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. :drink:

See you in Feb!

 

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

After a year do you have any clues that might be revealed before the end of the year about the new module?   Thanks!     Bye Phant

Super excited for anything made by deka. Any eta on when the announcement is gonna drop ? 

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

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

 

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!

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.

Something new and "odd/weird"

 

side-by-side cockpit? SU-24?

 

 

TU-28/H-5 Beagle?

While I am glad I am not the only one thinking of H-5, Q-5 would be a good fit for DCS. For the Marianas map the Q-5D variant would be most fitting, with laser range finding and Doppler navigation. If not that then A-5C/A-5III all the way as it is the most common being exported many places.

Ah, bummer. I had hoped you'd continue with some modern goodness for DCS.

 

Either way, whatever you do next, I'll buy it anyway. :thumbup:

First congrats Deka for a fantastic debut into full fidelity aircraft!

 

Now onward to future!

 

I thought about what is makes sense in DCS scenario, would be interesting to fly, not already being done by others (AFAIK) and no MFCDs :) :

 

MiG-25 Who doesn't want to go Mach 2.8 and fire telegraph pole sized missiles?

 

Panavia Tornado IDS Iconic cold war attack jet for those who like to get low and fast

 

Saab J-35 Draken Amazing aircraft, exotic Swedish take on 2nd gen fighter interceptor

 

Mirage III - MiG-21 contemporary, Middle East scenarios, Falkland...

 

F-104 Starfighter - main NATO fighter before F-16, main antagonist to MiG-21

 

Su-22 Not winning any beauty contests but is an important aircraft historically

 

Sepecat Jaguar Not winning any beauty contests either, counterpart to Su-22

i would like to share my own taste.

EE lightning, Su-15, Il-28, MiG-25, Tu-16, Q-5, J-8II

 

It's not hint. It will be a team vote and decision not my own decision.

Can you guys check to ensure that if there is no Liaoning, that the relevant Chinese air assets can take off from the Kuznetsov as a replacement? Otherwise, really good broad pick of assets and I'm thankful you guys are handling this, it's so important for DCS!

Does a compatible LCAC to fit the Type 071 sound like too much? I'd like to be able to get an end to end shore landing modelled from an assets point of view.

Any of the above. Cold war assets are for the win. Easier research, lower tech, less avionics and code and complexity = shorter time to get into production.... and way more "eyeball play" than BVR ;)

Excellent taste! Any of this will do! Although I am great fan of the Su-15 and MiG-25, I think the best addition would be Il-28 just by the amount of scenarios it can be used and covered.

All the people keep asking for capabilities to be modelled.... I want the limitations to be modelled.... limitations make for realistic simulation.

 

Arguing with an engineer is like wrestling with a pig in the mud, after a bit you realize the pig likes it.

I think North Korea still operates H-5. And it seems China operated them all the way into the 21st century. There’s also the time Pakistan traded theirs for F-6. Would be very interesting. Bet the rear turret would catch a lot of people off guard
