We have news from DCS World third party developer Aerges with a new video and a brief update on the status of the project. Let’s have a look.
Headed to testing
A brief update from Aerges came out today on their Facebook page with news that Aerges have sent the module off to Eagle Dynamics for testing. As with all third party modules, a point is reached where the aircraft is “ready” and then it goes into their own testing process to make sure that it’s ready for release and inclusion in an open beta.
Here’s what Aerges had to say:
We are writing this message to let you know that we have sent our Mirage F1 module to ED for internal testing. Also, please notice the attached basic video with a couple of spin maneuvers to demonstrate some of the flight model capabilities. We are working to provide you with more F1 related content in the coming weeks to prepare for the release of the module.Aerges on Facebook
The video referenced in the quote is available for viewing on their YouTube channel.
Weeks away from open beta?
In my experience, we’ve seen that DCS World modules can often take several weeks and occasionally months to hit the open beta after they have been received by Eagle Dynamics. That said, it bodes well for the project that Aerges are ready to send it of for testing. Even if that testing process takes some time, it still likely means that the Mirage F1 is heading to DCS sooner than later.
We do, of course, live in some uncertain times and we don’t know if the testing and release process will be affected or not. Aerges are planning to provide us with more details as we get closer to release so stay tuned for more.
