DCS: Eurofighter and Hind dev progress plus F-16 roadmap recap

Two modules are at the centre of attention for this DCS World Weekend News Update. The DCS: F-16C and the DCS: Mi-24P Hind. Both are making progress and we have some small updates on both. Meanwhile the Eurofighter project gets new screenshots. Let’s have a look!

Hind development

The improved sight picture for the ATGM system on the Mi-24P.

The upcoming patch will add some new features for the DCS: Mi-24P Hind. A remodeled pilot-operator ATGM sight picture is one of the key updates. Textures were redrawn for the sight which will apparently both improve the visibility through the sight as well as provide for better frame rates.

VR improvements to the sight picture are also coming as are new options for more switches which were previously only toggles.

DCS: Eurofighter screenshots

The news is already out but in-case you missed it, TrueGrit and Heatblur have teamed up to bring us the DCS: Eurofighter. We’ve known about the new but new screenshots are newsworthy enough…especially when they are as beautiful as this.

Viper roadmap recap

I’ve already written about the release of the DCS: F-16C roadmap earlier in the week. It’s a key guide to some impressive updates for the jet and I can’t wait to see it all come together. Eagle Dynamics reports that ten thousand plus responses were received which shows you the level of interest in this project.

ED reports that they will start on the highest ranked and most feasible features and add functionality from there.

Check out these updates and more on the DCS World Weekend News thread.

    Also we got a small Easter egg / tease.

    The SAM site you can see on the hind sight is a SA-5

    And still no Mosquito, not even news about it. They must be rebuilding the thing from scratch. And no BS3 news either. Oh well.

    The Eurofighter isn’t a big deal for me, but if it’s new and hot and cool, it might grow on me.

      They seem to alternate back and forth every few weeks. We heard about the Mossie last week so they talked about the Viper and the Hind this week. Next week maybe it’ll be the Black Shark and the Hornet or something like that.

      I think Eurofighter is going to be great, even just to fly. Fighter pilots seem to universally regard it as one of the most incredible aircraft to fly. So… I want to know what that’s like!

    I love those 3 modules and it’s great to see their progress, but I was more excited about the Constant Peg campaign by Bunyap!

    I started to design a campaign in a similar setting a few years ago, wondering why nobody ever did one for the Fishbed. It was more of a fun project to see how the Mission Editor worked and what was possible, it never had the pretension of being a full-fledged campaign. I had the chance to find a copy of the original Pilot’s Flight Operating Instructions (its English version), and to go through the real checklists, which was interesting to compare to the simplified ones provided by Leatherneck. The training missions didn’t impress me either.

    So my overall impression is that the Fishbed had been neglected on several accounts, and it was about time someone cared for this excellent module!

    It’s very good news, and knowing that Bunyap made the campaign is really a plus for me. That he asked the advice of Steve Davies shows once more his care for historical accuracy. I recommend the book “Red Eagles: America’s Secret MiGs”, by the way, very instructive and well written.

    I never was that into the Eurofighter myself… until that trailer from Heatblur came out.
