Today is a sad day. One of the most notable people in the DCS community has passed away. I had the pleasure to work with him on the RAZBAM's AT-27 Tucano project almost two years ago, in 2016. He was always a very nice person with me and our team, always very knowledgeable, sharing what he knew with me and everyone, very dedicated person, I've learned a lot with him. And today I received this sad information, that he passed away last Friday night.
I would like to send my condolences to his family and our friends. You'll never be forgotten, rest in peace, Eric. ... See MoreSee Less
Now the F404-GE-402 engines behave differently. Temperatures and fuel flow are not going to be the same. That's a huge improvement from the DCS: A-10C!Under the category of small details, we implemented differential engine modeling this week. Rather than each engine underlying modeling and IFEI indication for RPM, EGT, FF, and OIL PSI being the same, they are now modeled as separate, dynamic entities. While this may seem like a rather small thing, it has required quite a bit of work, but we feel it will provide a much more realistic modeling of the F-404 EPs. In the end, this was a must-do.
A few years ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Lemoore NAS to get some time in one of their F/A-18C dome sims. It was a great experience and provided a great perspective to flying the Hornet. One item that caught me though was just how fragile the gear doors can be when over-sped. Today, we added this as a new damage element to our Hornet.
As mentioned in this week’s newsletter, progress on the Hornet is moving along quickly with much of the work focused on the air-to-air radar modes, defensive systems, INS waypoint navigation, and flight dynamics / Flight Control Computer. Our next Hornet academic video will instruct on Hornet TACAN and ADF navigation.
Last week we launched the Open Beta version of DCS World 2.5, and your initial reports have been very helpful for us to reach a high-quality release version. The team is working very hard to bring the...
