Any news surrounding DCS: F4U Corsair at this point has captured plenty of attention and today we have a small update posted to the DCS World forums by a Magnitude 3 developer that gives us the most information we’ve had in a while on the project. Let’s have a look!
DCS: F4U Corsair developer Magnitude 3 have presented plenty of great looking screenshots over the last several weeks but we haven’t heard too much about the status of the project since their June, 2022 update. Naturally some fans have been asking questions on what comes next and we have a response that gives us the most up to date information on the project.
Posted on the DCS World Forums, Magnitude 3 developer Hiromachi wrote the following in response to questions coming up about the project.
We do not intend to publish any other updates until the F4U-1D is delivered. This is a project to which we are now almost exclusively committed and it’s on it’s final straight before the release. As of right now work on the damage model continues, which is neither interesting nor entertaining, as it requires more extensive modelling of internal elements of the module. Once this stage is concluded, module will be submitted to Eagle Dynamics for internal testing, until its deemed ready for release.
Except for occasional images and snippets, there will be no specific news until we publish a teaser for the F4U-1D, which should be followed by releasHiromachi on the DCS World forums
Although the message doesn’t appear to have been intended as an update, it is actually the most up to date information we have and it’s great to hear how things are going.
Obviously some work is still left on the project with the damage model appearing to be a key component still in the works. Submitting the module to Eagle Dynamics for internal testing is a stage that has, in other examples, taken a while to complete so it gives us a sense of where the project is.
