DCS World Weekend News – 16 February 2018

DCS World 2.5 Update

Since last week’s newsletter, the team continues to address items discovered during the Open Beta test period. Items such as fog discoloration, night lighting, multiplayer performance, load times, and others are all being addressed for the release version. It is very important that any changes made for the DCS World 2.5 release version maintain or improve game performance of the 2.5 Open Beta.

Since the DCS World 2.5 Open Beta release, we have released three Hot Fixes. You can read their change logs on the DCS forum.

Once we feel that all the significant issues of the 2.5 Open Beta have been resolved, we will then release the DCS World 2.5 installer and update to DCS World 2.5.

DCS World Helicopter 30% Off Sale Continues

Our DCS World helicopter sale will end on 19 February 2018 at 0900. One of the biggest benefits of DCS World 2.5 is that it’s a much better environment to fly helicopters. The higher-resolution terrain elevation mesh, higher resolution terrain and object textures, much improved trees, huge forests, and trees that now have collision / block line of sight for weapons, all create a much more engaging and beautiful environment to fly in.

DCS World 2.5 Open Beta Update

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 DCS World 2.5 release version to you as soon as possible. We have been reading all your feedback and striving to address all valid issues.

Less than a week after the 2.5 OB release, we released a hot fix which you can read about on the forum in special thread.

Earlier than initially planned, we also released the Open Beta of DCS World of 2.5 to Steam, which you can read about in the Steam news.

DCS World 2.5 has been a significant advancement for DCS World and we are heartened by all the kind words of appreciation, thank you!

If you missed it earlier, here you can find the DCS World 2.5 Open Beta launch trailer video.

DCS: F/A-18C Hornet Update

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.

New Rapier SAM Model

In addition to adding new units to DCS World, we are also busy updating some of the older units. Much of the priority is based on updating units that are operated by Iran… an important aspect of the new Persian Gulf map that is in late-development.

Here are a few work-in-progress of this unit that will also be playable via Combined Arms.
