DCS World 2.1 Update 1
Today we are releasing the first update to DCS World 2.1, which can include the DCS: Normandy 1944 Map and/or the DCS: NEVADA Test and Training Range Map. Over the past week, we have been carefully noting all feedback and we will do our best to address all concerns. For this first update, we have made the following primary changes.

For following week, we plan to add several new DCS: World War II Assets Pack units including anti-aircraft units, beach fortifications, barrage balloons, and several others.

DCS World 1.5 Status
In parallel to DCS World 2.1, we are also creating the next update for DCS World 1.5. The primary addition will be the support for the DCS: World War II Assets Pack. This update will be coming soon.

DCS World War II News
With the Early Access, Alpha release of the DCS: Normandy 1944 Map and the DCS: World War II Assets Pack, the team is very focused on moving these projects from Alpha to Beta, and then Beta to Final release as soon as possible. Our teams devoted to these projects are working hard and making great progress.

A big part of this effort is fleshing out the DCS: World War II Assets Pack. We have included some work-in-progress images of new Asset Pack units coming to DCS World: C-47, Ju-88, Sd.Kfz. 234/2 Puma, and Sd.Kfz.251.

We are also continuing to develop the P-47 and Me 262, as part of the original Kickstarter plan.

This is a huge year for DCS World War II that will continue to grow and improve as the year progresses.

New Damage Model Update
In order to bring DCS World to a new level of combat simulation, an improved damage model system is certainly required. Our team has diligently been working on this new and improved system and it will entail the following features:

  • We have moved from tracking 30 damage variables to several hundred damage variables. This includes such variables as each airframe spars, engine components, fuel tanks, oil, hydraulic, and pneumatic systems, control surfaces, ammo boxes, etc.
  • All elements have unique durability values that are used calculate of bullet penetration into the structure
  • There will be no more statistical accumulation of damage, so for example, you can’t tear off a wing by simply shooting at its tip
  • All elements can now be torn off by destroying their attachment points or airframe elements (wing spars for example)
  • Damage can be distributed from one element to another by fire
  • All liquids will flow out from holes, and this will result in decreasing effectiveness of hydraulic and pneumatic systems

Early Access Release of DCS: Spitfire LF Mk. IX
Today we are proud to bring you the Early Access Spitfire LF Mk. IX! Many pilots that have flown several World War II warbirds remark that the Spitfire was their favorite, based on its exceptional maneuverability, easy of flight, and stunning looks. We think that you will agree!

You can purchase the Spitfire from our e-Shop

The British Spitfire is one of the most iconic fighter aircraft of World War II. Most famous for its role in the Battle of Britain, the Spitfire served as Britain’s primary fighter during the entirety of the war. The Spitfire combines graceful lines, eye-watering dogfight performance, and heavy firepower in its later variants. For DCS World, we are happy to bring you the most accurate and realistic simulation of the Spitfire LF Mk. IX ever created.

The Spitfire LF Mk. IX was originally developed as a stopgap measure as a response to the appearance of the Focke-Wulf FW 190A.

Screenshots

The Spitfire LF Mk. IX is powered by the Merlin 66. This engine produces its best performance at slightly lower altitudes than the older Merlin 61. Spitfires equipped with this engine were designated LF Mk. IX. This was the most numerous version of the Mk. IX, with 4,010 produced. The majority of Mk. IXs of all types used the standard “c” wing, which would often carry two 20mm cannon and four .303in machine guns.

Note: To coincide with the Early Access release of the Spitfire, we are also releasing Update 3 to DCS World 1.5.5.

Weekend Bundle Deals
The Spitfire LF Mk. IX most shines when played with the other aircraft of our World War II stable of aircraft. Starting today at 1500 GMT and lasting until 19 December at 0900, get the P-51D, Fw 190, and Bf 109 as a bundle for 50% off! A huge savings!

DCS World 1.5.5 from Open Beta to Release Version
Last week we released the Open Beta version of DCS World 1.5.5. You can read the changelog here:
https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php…6&postcount=38

Based on both internal and external testing, we have decided to move version 1.5.5 from Open Beta to the release version today.

You can download the complete installer here:
https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c…/world/stable/

If you already have DCS World 1.5 installed, please either run 1.5 to start the updater or manually update by selecting Update DCS World from your Windows Start Menu / Eagle Dynamics.

DCS World 2.5 Update

We have determined that the DCS World 2.5 update will not be available in 2016 as we had earlier hoped. This is mainly due to additional work needing to be done of the Caucasus map update, and we don’t feel it can be accomplished within the next two months at a high level of quality. Before we can complete this map update, we first need to finalize and release both the Nevada map update and the Normandy map. Those, along with the Spitfire, are now our highest priorities. Once the Nevada update and the Normandy map tasks are complete, our map team can return to the Caucuses map and move the 2.5 closer to an Open Beta release.

Also, please note that official information is only passed along through our Newsletter and press releases.

Hornet Update

As with the DCS World 2.5 update, it was also decided last week that the Hornet Early Access will be pushed beyond our original desire to release by the end of this year. As mentioned a couple of weeks ago, we are now very busy coding the various cockpit systems and flight dynamics. However, as this work continues and we acquire new information, the level of complexity has become more apparent and it will take more time than first estimated.

When we do have significant news on the project to share, we will certainly do so. Once the Early Access for this project goes into pre-purchase, we will announce its release date then.

The Spitfire combines graceful lines, eye-watering dogfight performance, and heavy firepower in its later variants. For DCS World, we are happy to bring you the most accurate and realistic simulation of the Spitfire LF Mk IX ever created.

The Spitfire Mk IX was originally developed as a stopgap measure as a response to the appearance of the Focke-Wulf FW 190A.

The majority of Mk IXs of all types used the standard “c” wing, which would often carry two 20mm cannon and four .303in machine guns.

The Mk IX was a significant improvement on the Mk V. It had a top speed of 409 mph at 28,000 feet, an increase of 40 miles per hour. Its service ceiling rose from 36,200 feet to 43,000 feet. It could climb at 4,000 feet per minute. In July 1942, an early Mk IX was flown against a captured Fw 190A, and the two aircraft were discovered to have very similar capabilities. The RAF had its answer to the Fw 190 problem.

The Mk IX replaced the Mk V from June 1942. It allowed the RAF to go back onto the offensive in occupied Europe, and resume the “circus”, “ramrod” and “rodeo” raids. Its first combat success came on 30 July 1942, when a Spitfire Mk IX shot down a Fw 190. Amongst other notable achievements, the Mk IX took part in the highest altitude combat of the Second World War, when it intercepted a Ju 86R at 43,000 feet over Southampton on 12 September 1942. On 5 October 1944 Spitfire Mk IXs of 401 Squadron were the first allied aircraft to shoot down an Me 262 Jet. The Mk IX remained in service until the end of the war, even after the appearance of the Griffon powered Mk XIV.

DCS World War II Update
Work continues at great speed on new elements of DCS World War II. Much of the work is focused on DCS: Spitfire LF Mk IX and the Normandy map, and both are, or will be soon, going into internal test! This is always a good sign that we are approaching an Early Access release. In addition to the Spitfire and WW II era map, we also continue working on new AI units to inhabit the map. Last week we had a look at the Tiger tank, this week we offer first looks at the Panther and a work-in-progress image of the B-17.

DCS: NEVADA Test and Training Map Update
In previous newsletters, we shared images of the new airfields coming to the NTTR map. In addition to the airfields though, we will also be adding many new small and large urban centers like St. George, Laughlin, Tonopah, Goldfield, Caliente, and many others.

DCS: F/A-18C Hornet Update
Although most of the art work is done for the Hornet (minus a few external stores), most of the current work involves the coding of the various systems and flight dynamics. In addition to that, we are also very busy with documentation and the refining design specification as we gather new information.

Once the project gets closer to Early Access, we can start talking more about this project.

DCS World 2.5 Update
In addition to the Hornet, NTTR, and DCS WWII tasks, another high-priority task for us is wrapping up DCS World 2.5. The primary function of 2.5 will be to combine both 1.5 and 2.0 into a single executable and thereby being able to access all maps from a single program. We are close with the last two big items being the resolution of how we will render forests and trees in 2.5 and updating some of the old objects to our current format.
Once those two items are addressed, we will start releasing some new images and videos of what is in store.
