Miltech-5/PD has made a few small updates over the last year talking about their proposed DCS: Bo 105 helicopter project and we have a new one talking about a potential solution to some of the developers troubles getting a Bo 105 off the ground in DCS World. Here’s the latest!
RAZBAM to the rescue?
A year ago, a video posted to YouTube showed off the Bo 105 in an older version of DCS World (looks like 1.5) and it’s likely that the module dates back even further than that. What it showed was a work in progress start-up and flying around test mission with the Bo 105.
It seems that the biggest problem was for the artist at Miltech-5 to be able to find a programmer to get the project moving again. The latest report is that after approaching Heatblur and RAZBAM, it seems that RAZBAM may be helping to provide some expertise and programmer time to give the module the brain and heart that it needs.
Here’s part of the statement:
If both parties will be happy, we “like” to bring out the German BO-105 PAH1A1 (digital Version) first because she is already set up for take off and just needs a “brain” code-wise. Keep in mind that the whole texturework will be redone to a very professional level and it needs time since I do texturing/modeling on my own (you may already know).Miltech-5/PD
The texture work does look incredible with the release showing off some impressive detailing:
With some luck…
Though nothing appears to be settled just yet, with some luck, the stunning texture work above combined with programming and other support will help bring the DCS: Bo 105 to the simulation and add another interesting helicopter module to our virtual hangars.
I’ll be keeping an eye on this one in 2020!
