Slamraam probably releasing here one of his very best videos, beautiful editing, awesome skins, and jaw-dropping flying combined to a very smart musical pick. DCS World has never looked that beautiful. After GA’s great TV commercial for DCS, here’s Slamraam’s latest masterpiece for you to enjoy! Thanks guys for being excellent at showing how wonderful DCS can be.
Eagle Dynamics are still working on the new flight models for the F-15C and Su-27S in DCS World.
We’ve come across a short Su-27 landing video featuring the progress made so far and we were amazed by what we saw. The plane appeared to fly much differently, there seemed to be more forces and frictions acting dynamically on the plane, and the combination of all these variables appeared to make the plane fly in a much more realistic fashion.
It gets even better on and after touchdown. Gear suspensions interact way more than before, and the aircraft does not glue to the runway anymore making post touch down much more unforgiving and challenging. Smokes add a lot of realism as well. Long story short those advanced flight models will definitely boost the overall DCS experience. Virtual pilots will need to adapt and use more proficiency to maneuver the aircraft and this could lead to tricky situations especially at close quarters.
So after brand new 3D external models and 6 Depth of Field cockpits we will soon be getting advanced flight models. What’s left for a 100% hard core combat flight simulation experience? fully click-able cockpits and advanced avionics! Well in these circumstances there is every reason to believe that it would be planned as well and it does make sense. The smooth transition from survey Flaming Cliffs series to study DCS titles is on the way.
For comparison, here are 2 shorts videos showing an Su-27S landing. One is real and the other is from an internal DCS built: Very close I would say!
We are pleased to underline ED’s lastest efforts to improve the stability of the multiplayer mode in DCS. After months of approximate bug tracking and solving, we finally see ED stepping in with much more determination as they officially release the 1.2.7 open beta version with the aim to team up with the owners of the multiplayer servers that would like to volunteer to take part in this endeavor.
Moreover, the last DCS build allows the server to generate a track file of the mission even in the case of a crash. A brand new forum has also been created to be dedicated solely to bug tracking and reporting. It is undeniable that ED have now shifted more attention and resources to improving the overall stability of the game and the recent provided tools and new approach prove it.
1.2.7 may be the version that we have all been waiting for since the glorious days of the FC2 era. We may get back to large scale force on force tactical events using DCS to its full potential. Hopes are high and some of the iconic servers are already running the beta version.
Almost every time I fire up my DCS World, I end up freezing in front of my screen for few minutes while listening to the awesome soundtrack kicking in. So I’ve decided to dig in a bit and ended up on Konstantsin Kuzniatsou‘s page over at soundcloud.com.
This is for all those who would like to listen to the mighty DCS soundtracks at will, you could also set up your own playlist, play it while behind the stick or just whenever you wish!
On the top of the page, there is the soundtrack of the upcoming F-15C DCS module, an absolute masterpiece.
Hold on guys, how about a poll? ok here we go, pick your favorite DCS music!
Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
