I’ve been thoroughly impressed with the exterior visuals on the DCS: MiG-19 coming to DCS World, however, I have to admit that the cockpit shots haven’t been quite as impressive. They always looked good but it was missing… something. It looks like RAZBAM thought so too as new developer images shows added details taking shape.
Upgraded art, feature complete
The current plans, so far as we know, is for DCS: MiG-19 to release sometime later this month and it will release as a completed module with a fully flyable MiG-19P with all systems and weapons available and online.
That said, RAZBAM is working on some further improvements with the cockpit textures getting a notable upgrade. Have a look at these screenshots:
Though not everything is fully textured (see the flight stick), what is fully textured has beautiful detailing, a bit of realistic weathering, and lots of texture and grain that help take this up to another level.
Competition from Heatblur, arguably the best in the business when it comes to cockpit details, seems to have helped push things up to another level and this looks outstanding. I have high hopes for the finished product.
One other bonus
A few days ago, RAZBAM developer Prower111, confirmed that an AI version of the MiG-19S will also be coming with the module, possibly at launch, and that goes along with details that came out in the summer that the MiG-19S would also be planned as a flyable too.
Not sure if AI version will make the cut for release (but will be added as an upgrade) but S version will be included eventually in the package as a bonus, the main subject of the module is the P versionProwler111 DCS World Forums
Two versions gives players a couple of options: the MiG-19P has a pair of NR-30 cannons, an air-intercept radar, and K-13/AA-2 heat seeking missiles while the MiG-19S eschews the radar and the missiles for a third gun with three NR-30 cannons and slightly better top speed and overall performance.
