    After seven years of "window shopping", I finally was able to get myself a nice sports car. Had to sell both children and the dog but hey, what you gonna do ? It's a 370Z Nismo with short tail resonated exhausts. Sounds rather nice : )

    More stuff 225 Dear friends, The Summer is in full swing and we're working on finishing the Bodenplatte project. P-51D, P-38J, B-25 and Tempest 3D models are nearing completion, their textures are being made right now. Today we can show you the cockpit of Hawker Tempest Mk.V: As we announced before, all Bodenplatte planes will have 4K external textures. Here are Bf 109 G-14 shots that show the texturing made by Martin =ICDP= Catney: In addition to the models, we're working on the important features like more detailed pilot's physiology effects. Fatigue caused by a high G stress, (in)ability to bail out and other such things. After that, we'll get to repairing, refueling and refitting the aircraft on the ground. At the moment we're moving to a newer FMOD version and our sound designer converts all the sounds to the newer sound engine. The main result of this work should be a fix of the disappearing sounds issue after playing for a while that was caused by having too many of them. We also started the research on making the aircraft and ships visible from several times farther distances. This task is very complex since it involves many various parts of the project - we can't make it at the cost of a significant performance loss in the graphics and network subsystems. The work on the Bodenplatte map is nearing completion and we'll be able to show you the screenshots showing the result of this tremendous work soon. This also means we started the work on the Career mode for it that will be called Battle of Rheinland. Starting on September 17th, 1944 and ending on April 1st, 1945, it will include several new mission types characteristic for this timeframe on the Western front. All the required information - squadron histories and emblems, pilot biographies, awards, news, etc. - was accumulated with the help from our community members and we're very grateful to those who participated in this task. Another important thing we must tell you is that American, British and German infantrymen models for Bodenplatte project are finished - they will man the guns, drive the vehicles and appear as airfield personnel. And here's the model of the Royal Air Force pilot for Summer of 1944: Now let's talk about other our projects. For Tank Crew, the next update will bring Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.G that has autonomous electric turret turn mechanism for instance. And in September we plan to release the two scenario campaigns for Tank Crew - Breaking Point and Last Chance, telling about the fighting near Prokhorovka. Players will be able to participate in the battle from both sides. Today we can show you the title art for these campaigns that were created using in-game tank models and the screenshots of Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.G in the sim. The next update is planned to include two - actually four - new aircraft for Flying Circus - Halberstadt CL.II, Halberstadt CL.IIau, Bristol Fighter F2 Falcon 2, Bristol Fighter F2 Falcon 3. After that, to complete this project we'll have to release Amiens-Arras-Lille map that will come with improved visual models for ground vehicles. Here are the screenshots of the coming planes:

    Crikey! Another monster patch ladies & gents... this one took almost two hours for me to D/L to the OpenBeta last week so I recommend you commence the update ASAP to avoid a disappointing wait trying to join tomorrows DCS session. Big notes: Fw 190A-8 baby!!! Plus, a huge slew of Tomcat tweaks. An issue with HARMs going rogue and deciding they'd rather target some thing other than what you fired at fixed....(phew!) The JSOW is gonna be a fun little toy for you Hornet drivers also. Spitfire Rudder Trim has increased resolution for each button input - so for those of you with rudder trim on a hat switch or keyboard, each click will give you finer control of the rudder trim, allowing more precise trimming of the rudder Plus, the ability to now map the P-51s Gear Down/Gear Up to two separate switches will help those of us who regularly bimble along with the gear down thinking we've raised it cos we hit the raise gear switch that works in every other damn a/c....! DCS C-101 by AvioDev Fixed excessive aerodynamic drag of smoke system. Added jettisoning disconnection functionality of PYLONS and TOTAL. EJECTION-SELECTION circuit breakers of armament panel in the C-101CC. Added weaponry fuses disconnection by means of PYLONS and TOTAL. EJECTION-SELECTION circuit breakers in C-101CC. Fixed some EB and CC cockpit labels which appeared blank in EN and ES localizations. Fixed labels for breakers of weapons pylons outer, mid and inner (left wing are the lower. ones and right wing are the upper ones). Fixed Squelch Switch label. Fixed engine anti-ice push-button input. Omitted video recorder inputs. Fixed several duplicate input issues. Updated CN localization. Updated EN localization. Completed ES localization. Fixed Albedo of cockpit structure texture, EB only. DCS Christen Eagle II by Magnitude 3 LLC Corrected description.luas for the missing texture of the harness. Fixed ambient occlusion for the instrument panel. Fixed the front pilot's patch alpha channel. DCS F-14 Tomcat by Heatblur Simulations Quickstart missions: Caucasus: Free Flight tanker orbit fixed, Persian Gulf: Alert 5 readded Fixed Mak79 MK-83 loadout on right rear station. Mission fixes (AI radio and triggers) with voice overs from forum user “beppe_goodoldrebel”: Bear Intercept, Iran Flogger Faceoff, Tomcat Meets Foxhound, MiG-28 Furball - thank you! Fixed Iran Reactor Strike and Trench Run Reactor Strike missions (added target waypoints in target area) Fixed M61 and AIM-9 tutorial missions Added SP and COOP missions “Operation Timber - Paving the Way” and “Night Hunter” Fixed SAMs engaging with multiple subsystems not triggering the launch warning when the missile guiding subsystem wasn't the first strongest lobe of the tracking subsystems. RWR threat library changed to R9D4: added HAWK CWAR, Blindfire (BF) and Rapier launcher (RP). Renamed TCS roughnet map Added Fictional Chromecat Homage skin (“the developer’s delight”) Added B-side for tape player Enabled CRS selector in AWL/PCD Fixed some flap input bugs Fixed flap axis range Fixed flaps blowback bug Added AFCS SAS channel toggle switches Fixed some more key binding categorizations Fixed some command categorizations Added close jester menu bindable command Ensure SEAM LOCK lamp lights up in LTS test even without sidewinder present Ensure COLLISION lamp is lit during LTS test Fix typo in keybinds: Enviroment -> Environment Added some inertia to the turn and slip ball Rearranged Iceman relative heading menu entries When fenced in, Jester uses CMS mode switch position selected from the menu Fixed Jester menu category icon being displayed for disabled options Fixed Jester close menu while incapacitated Jester menu fixed in VR Jester will no longer give lost lock callout during dogfights Improved missile announcement logic for Jester Jester was sent to a fast typing course - waypoint entering speed has been improved INS GO NOW reworked - it displays the type of alignment which would be used with GO NOW. GO NOW should enter AHRS/AM if COARSE alignment is not achieved (previously IMU/AM). Jester will interrupt entering the waypoints and switch to INS when the requested alignment option is reached; he will continue entering the rest of the waypoints after "ready to taxi" Fixed current waypoint initialization for missions with no waypoints set. It should no longer require to select another waypoint before selecting WP1 Ensure STT lock is lost when radar is disabled Added new auto tune test conditions Fix for Jester being unable to re-align the INS after landing Jester now sets correct ARC-182 modulation when using "Tune ATC" Jester menu options can be selected with the ICS PTT when using 'OPEN MENU: RADIO MENU KEY FOLLOWED BY PTT (SRS PRIORITY)'. When using "OPEN MENU: RADIO MENU KEY FOLLOWED BY PTT (SRS PRIORITY)", the menu will hide only with a valid radio option selected or when the radio menu key is pressed again, but it won't hide with any PTT. The minimum ICS volume exported to SRS is set to 0.2 - this emulates ability to communicate without intercom Added custom viewport for Jester menu. Use "F14_JESTER_MENU" in your MonitorSetup file. When "F14_JESTER_MENU" is not set, it defaults to "GU_MAIN_VIEWPORT" Added special option to repeat RIO weapon type wheel on TID (VR readability vs realism.) Added special option to require weapon selector press between OFF and GUN (disabled per default) Corrected main menu sound files: fixes non looping soundtrack & black screen on exit Added SUU-25 to RIO weapons roller NEW: JESTER now uses RWS and ground stabilize if asked for. Ground stab can auto recenter after a preselect time, Jester can switch back to TWS automatically if needed Jester uses wider scan pattern in RWS mode Fixed radar pattern resetting to center in multiplayer/multicrew when changing modes Some tweaks to phoenix PN and lofting params Temporarily disabled automatic TWS MAN to AUTO mode change on phoenix launch pending TWS-AUTO final implementation Ensure TWS missile tracking only goes to radar targets Fix LZ showing on TID when vel vector is disabled on toggle button Fixed countermeasures programs being initiated (one release pulse) with power set to OFF Fix for time-to-impact not showing on TID for STT phoenix shots Engine performance tuning Fixed trim speed ramp-in Adjusted pitch and phugoid damping Adjusted rudder roll power at high AOA Adjusted pitch with power effects Adjusted drag in turning situations Adjusted lift in turning situations Adjust pitch trim ramp-in speed Fixed nozzle position bug when losing oil pressure Decreased max afterburner fuel flow above 55k feet Added slight yaw moment due to fuel probe deployment Fixed AP not being able to engage when using FFB stick Known Issue: Afterburners are invisible. DCS MIG-19 by RAZBAM Corrected G-suit parameter. Corrected AI FM min and max g limit. Corrected AI FM max range. Updated AI FM aerodynamic tables. Updated AI FM engine tables. Corrected damage shape name to actual file name and added wing damage shape. Corrected various engine related damage responses. Corrected various flight control related damage responses. Throttle logic corrected to design basic aircraft. Wheel braking effectiveness reduced to closer match data. UV Lights enabled. Instruments backlight enabled. Flood lights updated - All sights updated. ASP-5N Sight depression control updated. Depression values now affects all sights modes even when caged. Cockpit knobs and dials will no longer spin forever. Model altitude indicator and variometer behavior in transonic. Stores failure, structural limits implemented. Corrected timing for fuel starvation when inverted. Added engine failure when below military power and at very high altitude. Engine off induced drag behavior. “Crime and Punishment” - 10 mission campaign by Baltic Dragon. DCS MiG-21bis by Magnitude 3 LLC Fixed distance indication for gun in radar mode (distance must be equal or less than 2000m for indication). Improved inputs for ASP axis-based controls (rotaries). Improved ASP LAUNCH light logic when attacking radar-locked targets (airborne or ground based). Improved reticle size scaling. Fixed emergency jettison switches to being clickable. Fixed flaps reset switch going under control box when pushed. Fixed SOD mode knob rotation range. Fixed SPS launch button. Fixed white flood light knob rotation. Fixed air pressure gauge bezel's UVs. Added liveries' description.lua custom arg command for bort numbers. Note: This is not the full major cockpit update. These small fixes are brought over from it for testing. These updates did not make the previous patch. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    Power to weight is all important Arthur.... that’s why Artie is such an accomplished love terrorist ! With those pipes she has 362bhp (crank) and weighs 1584Kg (curb)..... The car not Artie.... All the power is from 5000rpm to 7500rpm so I have not used any of that yet. Self imposed 4000rpm redline until 1200 mile oil change, (also self imposed).

Back from a fantastic Duxford weekend and as always get inspired .... I have attached 12 A20 skins, 6 x USSR and 6 x USAAF. I thought that it would be good if everyone had them or at least the A20 pilots because it means that we can look like a squadron when on coops or dogfight. How cool would it be to run a mission where a number of A20s are dressed as a unit...Even if the non A20 flyers downloaded them it would mean they would see us all smartly dressed.... Perhaps even, and I know this is the Dogz, when selecting your A20 in the coop, if you are in the number 1 position, you took number '1' or the 'A' skin etc.... Aw go on...you know you want to... Cheerzen

    OK so he has a list of requirements... 1. Get a group of friends and a person willing to host an event. - I think we have that covered 2. It can be as long or as short or as organized as you want ... OK, it has to be at least a little organized. - we can manage here.... 3. Set the time period and make your alter egos in the campaign. - "characters" covered... 4. Schedule a time and fly. - what are we waiting for?

    Waiting for Dave to arrive. The moment he arrives we will immediately have a cuppa and a rambling conversation about the route we intend to take. Then it’s check hair, makeup, exfoliate and roar off towards DX. Hoping the weather stays splendid for the duration.

    Chaps, given that most event nights wrap up at 2230BST/GMT would you a) feel comfortable with and b) be interested in doing 1 hour specialist training lessons in certain aspects of DCS systems/aircraft/tactics on a non DCS night after activities with the designated sim have wrapped up? I was thinking I could make a little class up and those who can attend do, but we record the class for upload to youtube at a later time so any non-attendees can still benefit. That way we could perhaps concentrate the DCS night on more co-op style play and do dedicated training on select subjects on these "after hours" periods.

    Aircraft participation list quite a bit lower than previous years thus-far, with a distinct lack of European acts on the bill. I've heard rumours that the CAA have introduced new regulations that may be hindering this, which would be a damn shame. Also, looks like the Horsemen have pulled out according to the listings on their website. In much more positive news, the HAC De Havilland DH-9 has been added for it's airshow debut. The only airworthy WW1 bomber in the world with an equally unique power plant. Sweet! Not long now gents...
