The latest DCS World tutorial video is out and it shows off the new GMT (Ground Moving Target) mode in the DCS: F/A-18C Hornet. It also quite prominently shows off the new clouds for the first time outside of a teaser image or trailer.
New radar feature, clouds on display
Fans of the DCS: F/A-18C Hornet are going to like the details of this new video by Matt Wagner as it shows off a new air-to-ground radar mode that is capable of tracking moving targets and locking them so that you can hand off the target to weapon such as the AGM-65 Maverick.
In the background are DCS World’s new clouds in action and they appear to be running extremely well. Also in the background, Cyprus on the updated DCS: Syria map. And if you’re looking for other details, you can also hear a new weapon release sound for the AGM-65 Maverick in the video.
Clouds coming sooner than later?
An upgrade to the cloud system for DCS World is highly anticipated. Not only will they improve the look of clouds in the sim in a dramatic way, it’s also supposed to bring in network synchronized clouds as well which should be a boon for multiplayer server operators and their communities.
Typically, videos like these showcase features that aren’t too far off and are due to arrive in the next patch or perhaps two. Are the new clouds that close to open beta access? It seems more likely that they are or at least are much closer than I think many of us thought.
