New DCS videos talk Hind navigation, ACLS for free Carrier, and more WWII

Another barrage of videos from Eagle Dynamics and some partners have come out over the last few days and I want to make sure you’re up to date on the latest.

It’s video watching time

The first video to share is called “Supercarrier Operations” and its a cinematic experience showing off what the updated night time operations look like. This really sells the upgraded night lighting, the lit batons being used by the crew, and the overall refinement to night operations that’s arriving with this update. Have a look!

Next up, Matt Wagner is back and he’s talking about how to do an ACLS landing on the free USS Stennis carrier for DCS World. Eagle Dynamics made a 180 degree change on adding this to the free carrier and I’m glad to see it happen. The feature should be helpful for Hornet drivers no matter which carrier they are landing on.

Suntsag from Eagle Dynamics is back with another DCS WWII focused video. This is a quick with. New features he mentions includes some additional information on combined arms vehicles and the start/auto start engine feature. The AI has been tweaked so that the AI don’t climb quite as aggressively as they had before.

Finally, Wolfpack345 has a new DCS: Mi-24P Hind video out. He worked on this one with the folks at Eagle Dynamics. The tutorial covers how to use the KM-2 Magnetic Declination System that was recently added to the Hind.

    I like the guy’s with the light wands, but the carrier itself is still too dark. I really want an option to have it light up big time.

      I haven’t tried yet but the wands should make a big difference.

    About WW2 update videos (and WW2 updates in general): I’d sincerely like to feel more positive about the way they are communicating them, I think that they are a bit of a joke.

      Interesting. Why do you feel they are a bit of a joke?

        Without (re-)opening a much wider discussion, I would say that the overall vitality of the WW2 section is already so low that it doesn’t benefit at all from such poor and sparse updates, which (I feel) only succeed in confirming the modest commitment (at least apparently) of the developers. But such are the times of open development.

    I tried a night landing, using a big to screen, all room lights off. Man did I struggle, disorientation set in on approach and I kept being too Hi Right and almost hitting the island. Three bolters later I slammed it down after a late correction, hooked and stopped… got SO much to learn and sort out working the cockpit in the dark……but it looks great
