Hi all,    Patch will be a little later than usual but is still planned for today.    thanks   New changes still in testing so it will be next year now for Syria work.

update is live on steam, stand alone will follow shortly 

enjoy 🙂

If I'm not wrong (again) the target in the video is ZSU-57 self propelled AAA. I'm more exited about this than the MAV :lol:

 

Yeah it was, I'm definitely interested! Hopefully we'll hear more information about how it is going to be implemented.

But we don't have zsu-57 in dcs now???

 

No, it was only teased in the

.

 

I'm a stable player, so I probably won't see it for a while...

That is part of the "cold War" AAA and SAM in progress by ED talked some time ago. ZSU-57-2 and Sa-5 can be the first incoming.

Is that a payware package?

 

No, has Core AI units. Chizh has talked about them some time ago.

Wanted to post this way earlier and still had it in the pipeline, so why now do it anyway? Reactions to more recent stuff appending.

 

Good nights rest - Check

Say goodbye to wife and daughter - Check

Locked the door - Check

Coffee - Check

Lunchbox filled - Check

Sleeping bag - Check

More coffee - Check

 

 

*stretches fingers*

 

 

F5 button, here I come!

 

All that at 8 in the morning luna-trcv.png

Well, tried a flight in the new map, no surprises, the same washed colors and gamma problem in VR. Thank God we have the awesome work of Mustang and his shaders mod to help.

 

Thanks for trying that out. I went right with the mod. As long as it works, we can at least get around it.

 

Shame to fly over it at 20,000+l this is a helo/CA playground!

 

*cries in VR* icon_cry.gif

 

Super carrier figures only render in one eye in VR and the encyclopedia - fixed.

 

Finally! pinkiepieexcited.png

 

Su-25T Cockpit. Added scratch texture on the canopy.

MiG-29 Cockpit. Added scratch texture on the canopy.

Su-25 Cockpit. Added scratch texture on the canopy.

A-10A Cockpit. Added scratch texture on the canopy.

 

Ah, I see, cat orgies eeyup.png

 

TGP Litening: ...

HUD CCRP indication doesn't sync with on TGP selected target - Fixed

TGP Slew changes Waypoint locations IN HSD - Fixed

 

That was about time, those were of the most important fixes to the Viper ever icon_exclaim.gif

 

Added Doppler Beam Sharpened (DBS) EXP -1/2/3 modes

AG radar. EXP render issues - Fixed

 

Great addition, and I'm having fun with it, even though it's still hard to be good at dealwithit.png

 

Cylinder temperature fixed

Aftercooler update.

Oil system update

fixed missing FFB shake

 

Finally, been waiting for those for a while pinkie-approved.png

 

...

 

Can't say this often enough: Even though I haven't spent time on that module yet except for watching it in videos, I am impressed by the output of those devs salute.png

 

I guess their Mirage F1 will end up being an awesome module once we'll have it icon_razz.gif

 

R-27 missiles family. Reduced the value of the induced drag, increased lift. Lift to drag ratio now is more accurate and provides better performance against maneuvering targets, compared to AIM-7 performance level.

R-77 missile. Reduced the value of the induced drag, reduced transonic zero-lift drag, increased the lift. Missile will better save energy, slightly increased range at low altitude.

MiG-25. When a plane loses a wing, missiles stay in the air - fixed.

Implementing compressibility for pitot tube for Mach > 1 and turning it on for all planes.

Tail wheel tuned for all taildraggers.

GDR (East Germany) added as a country.

 

Great to see the RU missiles being worked on as well, finally. People have been going mad over this and I was kinda tired of telling them they'd do the US ones first because of them being the flagship modules rdlaugh.png

 

Fun thing about the MiG-25 missile in air thing is that I just saw a picture of a Flanker with the exact same issue a few days before this patch went out, but IIRC that was the ECM pod instead of an R-73.

 

Nice to see the Mach transition on the gauges in more modules, small details like this make DCS actually feel like real twilightsmile.png

 

Guess I'll have to try what that tail wheel thing means pinkiepieexcited.png

 

And finally, we have the GDR for some cold war action in there as well icon_cool.gif

 

Same with the Huey

 

Actually that's been there like forever... icon_question.gif

 

It's time to expand the SSD, with 240GB I don't even have to start. I guess when installing a new SSD, I will have to reinstall everything, operating system and simulator, right?

 

My DCS doesn't even remotely fit on that as it's already 257GB... icon_redface.gif

 

And probably my advice comes too late already, but I'll drop it anyway. Use an image recovery tool (Acronis True Image, linux dd command or maybe even Windows can do that already, never used that) to clone your SSD over to a new, bigger one. That way you'll have everything up and running with more space to go with, without having to reinstall everything. And it probably takes like 20-30 minutes to do that. On top of that, you have a back up with the old drive, unless you clear it and use it for anything else. Other option would be to just add the new one as a second drive and simply move your DCS installation over there with Windows Explorer. It will keep running.

 

To be honest. I'm more interested in JDAM and JSOW for the F-16 just because, like with the Hornet, these weapons will provide better standoff range for the F-16 than the Maverick. Especially when you factor in the Viper's ability to accelerate better than the Hornet.

 

You just made me want those JSOW B again fsgrin.png

 

But we don't have zsu-57 in dcs now???

 

Actually I was under the impression as well as it's such a standard asset, but well. I was wrong. How could DCS even exist without that thing for so long? rdlaugh.png

 

Yes - it is shown as that date on the official post.

Was eager to get the update tomorrow, but well. Things happen. Might increase the chance though to get the A-10C II next week as well twi-notbad.png

where is this change log?

 

 

It's all in reference to last month's update (26th Aug) as far as I can tell: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/news/changelog/openbeta/2.5.6.54046/

 

There's no changelog for next week's patch as far as I'm aware.

Today we release the Open Beta with several high priority issues for the Hornet AIM-9 family which were discovered yesterday.

I'm curious what is the issue ? So we dont need to report it (again).

It was at the end of the notes. Seems the Tone is gone and the AIM-9X radar lock is jittery.

Hopefully a hotfix will come soon for them.

 

I also wonder about the stable version, this patch looked to be mostly fixes as well as some new goodies for the F-16 and F/A-18, so hopefully a new stable build won't be far off, so long as this new patch is a good one.

However, I decided to release this OB because it delivers significant changes made by our partners to the aircraft that are very important for you and we prepared new features for Hornet and Viper.

The issues will be fixed and updated during the coming week.

 

I fully agree with this decision. A few days of patience to solve the AIM-9L / X issues is more than reasonable, considering the large amount of updates and improvements that there are with this OB.

Thanks so much.
