DCS: Supercarrier delayed, bug details

Eagle Dynamics has announced in a mini update that DCS: Supercarrier is slightly delayed and their new target date is April 15. There are a few reasons for the delay but I think ultimately a slightly delayed release is better than a problematic one. Let’s look at what they are working on and some challenges that will come in early access.

Delays and polish

One of the reasons for the delay is to allow the ‘Stay at Home’ sale to clear. Obviously this sale was not really planned in the same way that most sales are for the series so this wasn’t originally part of the plan.

The delay, however, is very likely to be a good thing as Eagle Dynamics still is crunching bugs and solving problems. To help illustrate, Matt Wagner copied a long list of the bugs they are currently tracking including several that are considered “stoppers” which means that they cannot ship the module in this state. There are some medium priority issues too that might as well be a bit of a stopper in my estimation as well.

Nothing for F-14 right now

Although the plan is to integrate DCS: F-14 into DCS: Supercarrier and provide support for it, there was a note to indicate that the F-14 would not be supported right away at early access. They do state that they are trying their best to do some limited functionality.

Integration of DCS: F-14 Tomcat is planned to be delivered with Release State version. However, we will try our best to add some Supercarrier functionality to Early Access version too.

Wags

Hopefully some limited support can be introduced right away. Ultimately the F-14 will be supported which is great but it won’t have full support right away.

    Awwww, bummer! I was looking forward to it next week. Pre-ordered it a few weeks ago. Oh well.

      Same! Still, probably better to launch with some major bugs crunched than fight through a disappointing experience.

      In the meantime…that Hornet! 🙂

    I tell ya, I’m worse than my daughter trying to pick out shoes. The F-18 is nice, but then I switch back to the Harrier, feel really happy with it, and still have lots to learn.

    Gonna fly the F-18 some more but will probably try a few other planes first before buying anything. Definitely want to try the Spitfire, the Dora, and the Mirage.

    But I still want my carrier…. 😦
