Dynamic Campaign

 

While a hangar of great aircraft is certainly a wonderful thing, having an engaging, exciting, and dynamic combat environment is equally important. We have been developing the inner-workings of a dynamic campaign system which will continue into 2019. Based on the strategic goals and tactical situations, the systems will create dynamic Air Tasking Orders (ATO) that players then join to help their side to victory. This work is non-trivial, but we believe the addition of this system should be exciting for DCS users.

We now have a basic test version that works within DCS World to evaluate the real-time strategy element of the system. We are using this to debug the system. In parallel, work is now underway on the UI interface and the AI machine learning code. This is complex and is receiving a lot of focus at the moment.

The basics of the dynamic campaign simulation engine are working in the map view and we’ve been using this to test the RTS element of the system. To support this, we’ve been adding new icons to the map for items like factories, warehouses, logistic units, and more. Work is also underway on providing visual indications of ground force movements and emplacements in the map view.

Work on the dynamic campaign has been underway for over a year, and the progress has been steady on this very complex task. We understand that this is one of the most awaited features in DCS World and we are giving it the attention it deserves.

 

Much of the work is focused on the dynamic campaign creation tool layers as part of the Mission Editor, developing machine learning mechanics, and creating an AI neural network for the RTS element of the system. The machine learning and neural network tasks are particularly challenging, but we believe they should provide a unique dynamic campaign experience.

 

We expect to start testing this feature in the latter part of 2020.

Dynamic Campaign Engine For DCS World

 

The DCS World Dynamic Campaign Engine combines a Real-Time Strategy (RTS) engine
with military forces and economics layers (production, logistics, use and transfer of resources)
that pitch two opposing sides aided by advanced strategic and tactical AI.

 

We have now completed the core RTS logic and have connected it to DCS World. We are
currently finalising the basics of the in-game economic models. We will be working on the
combat tasking logic and certain win-win situations in the near future. The last stage will
be the Client - Server architecture needed to support large campaigns with on-going
online sessions.

 

We are certain that you will have many detailed questions and look forward to revealing
more information on this module as and when we are in position to demonstrate some
of the features live.

Dynamic Campaign

 

This massive task has been underway for over two years, and the progress has been exciting. The campaign is built around a Real-Time Strategy (RTS) foundation that factors resources, zones of control, logistics, available forces, and a strategic decision-making system. While we believe internal testing will continue in the 1st quarter of 2021, it is too early to estimate a release date. However, external Beta testing is planned hopefully in Q2/Q3 2021.
