DCS World Weekend News – 14 September 2018

DCS World Open Beta News
This week we updated the Open Beta of DCS World 2.5 to include a number of fixes and additions. Highlights of this week’s Open Beta update include:

  • Addressed an intermittent multiplayer host crash.
  • Fixed a crash related to multi-monitor use.
  • Corrected VR issues related to 4K monitors and cursor scale.
  • Aircraft carrier catapult adjusted for low temperature conditions.
  • Added work-in-progress update to properties of Medium and High PRF radar emission. There is a known issue with Medium PRF with high-aspect targets.
  • Hornet ACM boresight mode extended to 10 nm.
  • Corrected UH-1H glass transparency.
  • Numerous AJS-37 fixes and improvements.
  • Added the Yak-52 to the Logbook.

For a more complete changelog, please see changelog on the DCS forum

Regarding the Hornet, it’s important to note that we are now focusing on some of the more difficult and time-intensive tasks like making several fundamental changes to the air-to-air radar simulation (will have benefits with other modules), the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS), and other systems we’ve touched on recently. As such, the number of new items for the Hornet will be less than before, but the same amount of attention and manpower is being devoted.

Arleigh Burke Class Destroyer
Coming to DCS World as an AI-only ship unit, the Arleigh Burke is an American guided missile destroyer that forms the backbone of the US Navy surface fleet. Built around the SPY-1D multi-function Aegis Combat System radar system, the Arleigh Burke is armed to the teeth with surface-to-air, surface-to-surface, and anti-ship weapons and defense systems.

As we grow the naval aviation component of DCS World with the Hornet, Tomcat, and other future carrier-borne aircraft, the Arleigh Burke is a much-needed component to create a modern, realistic naval task force.

DCS World Update
Last week we released DCS World Open Beta version 2.5.3.2115. Unfortunately, as an open beta, it introduced a crash when using module maps and some VR-related issues. This week we addressed these issues in the Open Beta; however, we will be unable to move this Open Beta version to the Release version this week. Today’s Release version update will correct the AGM-65E crash.

Thank you for your patience.

DCS: P-51D Mustang Update
The Mustang was our first World War II aircraft and was pivotal in laying the ground work for our later warbirds. Since its initial release though, our graphic technologies have greatly improved, and the Mustang is starting to show its age. As with other DCS World aircraft, we are dramatically improving both the cockpit and external model of the Mustang. Both will use Physical Based Rendering (PBR) and Deferred Lighting (DF) to radically improve the aesthetics of this iconic DCS warbird. This will be a FREE update to Mustang owners!

Today we have some work-in-progress images of the updated cockpit.

DCS: NS 430 Navigation and Radio System Available on Steam
Purchase on the DCS Steam page

The NS 430 GPS navigation system, is an optional add-on module for most DCS World aircraft. It provides powerful, yet intuitive, navigation and radio communications options to supplement the navigation and radio systems already integrated into your aircraft. The NS 430 is particularly useful for older aircraft with less sophisticated navigation and communication systems.
