    More good news, IRIS simulations (of FSX fame) are now developing aircraft modules for DCS

    Spanky wrote: »
    As it stands at the moment, we're one of a handful of 3rd party developers permitted to develop for DCS World. As has been stated to us, both IRIS and ED/TFC are in very early days with regards to 3rd party integration and we're both eager to see how the development process goes on both sides of the fence. We're also very enthusiastic to see developments progress..

    All that being said, ED only has so much resources available to them, and they have to continue developments to DCS, do their own in-house product range and and other high priority things. In amongst that, they now have to develop an SDK (aka DCS development for dummies!) and hand hold a few choice 3rd party devs as we all work on our products.

    Given all the above, it was made quite clear to our team by myself that it's pretty much a dive in the deep end and swim deal.. :) We have to come in and learn how things are done, how systems are coded, how flight models and audio are handled and much more. That's why we're focusing on building up as much knowledge from the community as possible.

    So our thought process was thus.... Initially we thought "Great, let's do a fantastic in depth A-10C level of detail aircraft...." a few days later, we thought "Bugger, how are we going to do that when we're still learning how to put planes into DCS!"

    After discussing with TFC and going over the business side of things, we're all of the opinion that it's far more beneficial to start simple and progressively increase complexity of products as a. our knowledge increases and b. ED's resources become more available.

    Don't get me wrong, we're totally blown away by the support that ED/TFC are providing. We've worked with developers who've shown far less willingness to share information and assistance. We just aren't going to bite off more than we can chew..not at this stage.

    So, the mindset in Team IRIS at the moment is as follows....

    We develop our first aircraft for DCS which will likely be something fun yet simple. From this, we learn where we can improve, and what you as the customers want to see. Some thoughts are towards the Open Beta idea which TFC have encouraged. This allows us to provide a staggered product release over time, allowing us to get product to the customer earlier, and upgrade it as our skills and knowledge improve.

    A prime example of this would be the development of a MFD system... initially, an aircraft might come with a single screen option without the possibility of changing screens, but as knowledge improves, you may see more depth to systems as upgrade patches etc.

    As I said earlier, this is a learning experience for us. We know we're the new kids on the block with DCS, and whilst we're having great fun learning this platform and enjoying finally having a combat platform for our combat planes in, we're relying heavily on what you'd like to see.

    If what you'd like to see fits into what we have the ability to produce, then that makes me a happy man. :)

    Just ******* awesome!!!

    Okay, we've had the green light from TFC to let you all know the products we have planned from the IRIS team over the next 3 year development cycle.
    (I hope they won't take that long to make! lol)

    Contracts have been signed for the following products;

    IRIS F-15E Strike Eagle for DCS World
    IRIS F-22 Raptor for DCS World
    IRIS F-14D Tomcat for DCS World

    I will say that the F-15E is being developed with the intention of being submitted to ED as a DCS branded product (ie. DCS: F-15E Strike Eagle) and of course will be one of the longest to develop.

    The F-22 will be looking at making use of the AFM for thrust vectoring and we'll be discussing this further with ED.

    The F-14D is likely to be the first completed aircraft from the stable if all goes well.

    We will be looking at the best way to develop these products from a business perspective over the coming weekend after a team meeting.

    There MAY be another project being added to the list as a fourth product was dropped from the list at the last moment. We'll let you know when we know.. ;)

    Anyway, have fun... it's nearly 1am here and I need to get away from this PC.. I'll see you all tomorrow..

    Ciao folks..

    Another Developer to develop for DCS...
    Ells228 wrote: »
    Virtual European Air Operations is pleased to announce our development strategy for DCS.
    First, a little about VEAO (yes I know, you want me to cut to the chase).

    We have been around since 2005 developing models for FC1.12a and FC2, specifically the BAE Hawk and Eurofighter Typhoon.

    The Hawk has been used by the Virtual Red Arrows aerobatic display team since then and has had a few updated versions through FC1 and Flaming Cliffs 2 into the incarnation that we currently use today and more recently featured on our latest video showing the 3d cockpit.

    The Typhoon was developed specifically for the RAF Recruitment team for use at the Waddington International Airshow back in 2009 and 2010.
    Two pilots from 3 squadron in front of the head-to-head challenge at Waddington

    Since then we have been developing further for FC2, including a 3d cockpit with MFD and HUD integration. Due to a few snags and limited hard coded functionality we decided to continue with development in anticipation of the release of DCS and stop further FC2 development.

    As you can imagine, the Typhoon is going to be a big challenge. Therefore we have decided to develop and release the BAE Hawk first.
    Os others have said before us, we need to take baby steps. Learning how we can fully integrate into the DCS World and give you the experience you want, and deserve.

    We have an excellent team that have a lot of experience making mods for FC1 and FC2 and a lot of this knowledge has already been easily transferred into DCS. But there is still much to learn, much to remodel, much to re-skin, much to get the flight model right, etc etc.

    So our development plan is simple yet robust and will give the fidelity that you want and deserve.

    Our first development is the BAE Hawk T.1A trainer.Why the Hawk? Well first, simply its the jet we have modelled, skinned and fully working in FC2 and has the simplest of features to get working in DCS as the cockpit is mostly analogue. It allows us to get into the inner workings of DCS and allows us to produce a high quality product without having to get too technical with MFCD functionality, advanced radar dynamics, etc.

    Secondly, it's the fast jet trainer that the RAF (and other air forces) use for pilots getting into the Fast Jet Programme. This also fits in with our ACTS concept which I'll talk about a little later.

    We have also discussed producing the Hawk Mk. 128 T2 variant.
    The Mk. 128 includes modern LCD displays instead of conventional instrumentation, and allows preparation for flying modern fighter aircraft, particularly the all "glass" Typhoon.

    And so, on to my favourite jet, the Eurofighter Typhoon. Ever since our first developments back in 2008 for the RAF Recruitment team we have loved working on this aircraft. She is complex as hell, flies like a bat out of hell and quite frankly is a match for any other aircraft in the world, even putting the Raptor to hard work in recent exercises.

    This baby is going to be a beast to build into DCS and one hell of a challenge, but it's going to be great fun!!

    We will start with an early tranche, most likely the Block 1 moving onto Tranche 2 and Tranche 3 with complex Air-to-Ground systems and full DCS integration.

    And onto ACTS as I mentioned earlier. The Air Combat Training School was something we came up with for a proposal to the RAF back in 2010. Due to budget cuts and other factors it never took off (excuse the intended pun). The ACTS fits in line with the current RAF Fast Jet training programme utilising the Hawk and then moving onto the Typhoon. We feel that this is important in the development and learning of the two aircraft systems and capabilities and elements of ACTS will be built into the core VEAO modules.

    As other development teams have mentioned, DCS is a big learning curve for all of us. However, the VEAO ethos is to always share what we have learnt to allow others to create and I have spoken briefly to other teams about knowledge sharing to allow development paths to be aligned rather than going out and all finding the same things by ourselves.

    We will post regular updates and eye candy and we will listen to your comments, suggestions and wishes.

    ]Please also visit our forums at[/COLOR] and keep an eye on Facebook updates.

    I hope you are as excited at these times as we are, with all of the development work going on to give us all great products to fly in awesome simulator.

    Best wishes
    Chris Ellis
    VEAO Founder

    IRIS starting also to develop the T-38A Talon (Top Gun Mig-28s :) ) for DCS: World. Good stuff.
    Spanky wrote: »
    So, we've been listening to what you want on the forums and after long discussions within the team and with the publishers, we're happy to confirm development of the IRIS T-38A Talon for DCS: World!

    This decision has been based largely on the feedback we've received from you guys on what you'd like to see, and based of course on the production assets available to us.

    The T-38A Talon will be aimed at release prior to the F-15E, essentially allowing us to step up our skills in project development. Whilst we have yet to firmly set out project content, we are anticipating to include a training syllabus similar in structure and content to that which the US Air Force uses.

    We will of course, be calling on the community to involve themselves where possible, and we will be providing regular updates on development to keep you all in the loop.

    We look forward to the bright future this new platform brings and I hope you all will enjoy and take part in this next step in our development process.



    Also a brand new Deveoper Coretex attempting some thing challenging to say the least, A DCS level F/A-18E Super Hornet.

    Core Tex Designs does indeed have a license agreement. However, they are very early in their development and have decided to jump into the very deep end. I wish them the very best and also will be curious to see how they resolve some of the technology challenges posed by this aircraft.

    There are no Irish squads or servers, most of the servers are actually password protected so you cant join them, the protected servers have contact information so you can obtain access, ive contacted a few of the squadrons and have not heard from them as to what the paswords are

    I have this a couple of years now, have most of the systems down and through lack of available servers and lack of participation from other virtual pilots, i have pretty much given up on DCS A-10 and BS

    I do fly Lock-on FC 2 which has a basic A-10A plane, and is a lot more "friendlier" to fly online in.

    FC 2 has a great guns only server too, Both Akado and the Guns and Roses server...I love 1v1 guns only dog fighting on these servers!

    I think i flew against you a few times NateIRL

    Announcing DCS: UH-1H Huey

    DUXFORD, UK, October 7th, 2012 - The Fighter Collection and Belsimtek are proud to announce the upcoming release of DCS: UH-1H Huey - the next aircraft in the Digital Combat Simulator (DCS) series of PC combat simulations. The Huey is one of the most iconic and well-known helicopters in the world. Having seen extensive service as a transport and armed combat support helicopter during the Vietnam War, the Huey continues to serve in both military and civilian roles in many countries around the globe today.

    DCS: UH-1H Huey will feature the same exacting level of modelling detail as the existing Ka-50 Black Shark, A-10C Warthog and P-51D Mustang DCS aircraft and it will be online compatible with them. Working in close partnership with U.S. based UH-1 operators and experts, The Fighter Collection and Belsimtek have leveraged their unique skills and experience to provide the most dynamic and true to life helicopter experience available on the PC.

    The UH-1H will be the first helicopter of conventional design featured in the DCS series and further demonstrates the broad scope of the DCS simulation environment and its ability to introduce a wide variety of aircraft from all eras into a common simulation platform. The UH-1H will also be the first DCS aircraft to offer multiple player positions, including pilot, co-pilot, and door gunner. Like previous DCS products, the UH-1H will include a variety of difficulty options to cater to users with different levels of flight simulation experience, including “Simulation” and “Game” playing modes.

    DCS: UH-1H Huey will be available for pre-purchase later this year for $39.99.

    For more information, please visit:

    Key Features of DCS: UH-1H Huey include:

    Bug Fixes and Adjustments:

    DCS World
    Network code improved for greater stability.

    Note: Although many improvements and optimizations have been made, we still highly recommend 16 player limit when hosting complex missions. Depending on the exact composition of the mission, the bandwidth and number of players that a host may accommodate will vary. As always though, clients must be aware of their ping times (often influenced by connection distance to host) as this can cause warping and other connection issues.
    Fixed multiplayer data link for Russian aircraft.
    Fixed Force Feedback joystick trim problems.
    Tuned aircraft gun smoke.
    Fixed Set Path to Column formation.
    Fixed Georgian soldier animation.

    AIM-120 and R-77 maximum load factor increased to 40g.
    R-77 data adjust. Thrust, lift and drag.
    AIM-120 data adjusted. Lift and drag.
    AIM-9M maximum load factor increased to 35g.
    AIM-9M thrust changed 12000 N.
    Adjusted AIM-9P drag.
    AIM-7M thrust and drag adjustments were made.
    Increased load factor to R-27 family to 24g.
    Increased R-27ER initial delay to 1.5 sec.

    Multi-channel missile guidance is fixed.
    Decreased the damage value of modern AA missiles warheads from directional to enhanced. Earlier AIM-120 and R-77 had a warheads with large multiplier factor termed "directional". These missiles were very lethal, more so than even an S-300. It was not realistic and we decided replace "directional" warhead with the less power "enhanced" warhead.
    Number of simultaneously guided AIM-120s is 4 for F-15, F-16 and F-18.
    Number of simultaneously guided AIM-54 is 4 for F-14.

    Release of DCS Version 1.2.3

    The new 1.2.3 update to DCS World and DCS Modules is now available as an auto-update, or downloaded directly from This update includes a number of new, free DCS World features including a new DCS World Su-27 model, new triggers, and new scripting tools. It also includes major new features to the Combined Arms and Flaming Cliffs 3 modules. In addition to adding new features, this update includes many bug fixes and adjustments like missile performance, network game stability, force feedback joysticks, and a lot more.

    You can read about all the changes here

    DCS 1.2.4 Development

    With version 1.2.3 now available, work is underway on version 1.2.4. The primary focus of this next version will be:
    1 - Further improvements to network play and stability
    2 - Coincide with the release of DCS: UH-1 Huey
    3 - Improvements to air-to-air missile performance
    4 - Changes and adjustments to beyond visual range combat systems
    5 - Further GUI improvements

    Moving to 64-bit Operating Systems Only

    As we move forward improving the DCS World environment, we are more and more often running into roadblocks that prevent us from doing so due to supporting 32 bit operating systems. This includes larger and more populated worlds with greater terrain mesh details and textures. By moving to 64 bit support only, we will be able solve this and allow larger missions with more units, and it will allow us to improve visual effects.
    This change will be coming in the next few months.

    The Future of DCS

    Currently the team is focused on completing Flaming Cliffs 3 and continued updates and improvements to DCS World. Once Flaming Cliffs 3 is complete, more of our focus will shift to upcoming DCS titles like the F-15C, F/A-18C and Fw-190D9. Looking further out, Eagle Dynamics and our partners plan a large number of new modules that include the Su-27SM, F-86F, MiG-15Bis, MiG-21Bis, Hawk, Mi-8, Mi-24, OH-58 and AH-1G, to just name a few.

    The team is also hard at work on many updates and changes to our world rendering system, which will allow us to make new and much more detailed worlds than we have now, including the Nevada map. We hope to have these changes in place before the end of the year.

    With the combination of a large and varied stable of aircraft, along with upcoming new maps, we will continue moving forward toward our goal of DCS World allowing combat missions over a wide array of time periods and locations. While our products initially started with a focus on modern day jets, this is now expanding to include World War 2, Korea, Vietnam and modern day content.

    A bit more info MK
    There has been quite the clamoring for some more images of the new AI-only Fw-190-D9 aircraft that will be free as part of the upcoming ver. 1.2.4. For now this is AI-only, but work is already on-going making it human flyable at the same level as our P-51D.

    We understand why the inclusion of P-51D into DCS raised a lot of eyebrows, but in the coming months and years, we intend to gradually flesh the WW2 combat environment out with units and maps. In fact, we have a partner with quite a lot of experience in this area! However, this is a big undertaking, so as much as some folks may wish, we cannot do it all at once as a single package. Rather, we will gradually add new components as they are ready from Eagle and our partners.
