    DCS F-14A/B Pre-order Now Available at Heatblur

    Lol! Methinks that "LWin+Home" will become all Tomcat owners new most memorised key! Oh, they'll start with the best intentions... "Only 248 steps to startup - I can do this! " … 30 minutes later, no engines lit "Bugger this for a ball of chalk. What the devil is that auto-start key binding?!?"

    Best get memorising that start-up sequence, lads. Holy Shiiii…….! https://www.mudspike.com/dcs-heatblur-f-14b-tomcat-preview/
  3. If any of you, as I was, are experiencing a bug where AGM-65s (and now the AGM-88 in the beta version) mounted on the outboard under wing pylons (stations 2 and 6 IIRC) do not disappear when fired, well i have a solution. I deleted the fxo & metashaders2 folder from C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\DCS (or DCS.openbeta as appropriate) folder. Then I Repaired DCS World from the Windows start menu. Ran a mission and now both AGM-65 and AGM-88 do not leave phantom missiles on outboard pylon when fired! To be clear: the bug behavior is weapons fire, track and (sometimes!) hit targets, disappearing from the stores page so they cannot be selected and weight and trim are affected accordingly; however, the 3D model remains on the pylon, unless emergency jettisoned.

    DCS Future

    Hi chaps and chapesses, For general information here's what is pending on the DCS front, starting with the WW2 stuff as that seems to be the majority common interest. Blue is ED in-house developed, Orange is Third Party: WW2 Planes; Player Flyable: Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-8 Republic P-47D Thunderbolt Dehavilland Mosquito FB Mk.VI Messerschmitt Me 262 Vought F4U Corsair Curtiss P-40F - The developer of this module, VEAO, have ceased their development with the DCS platform. WW2 Planes; AI Only: Douglas A-20G Havoc Douglas C-47 Skytrain Junkers Ju-88A Avro Lancaster Hawker Typhoon Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6 Consolidated B-24 Liberator North American B-25 Mitchell Martin B-26 Marauder Mitsubishi A6M Zero WW2 Ground/Sea Units: M10 Tank Destroyer E-boat Schnellboot type S-130 Modern Era Combat Aircraft; Player Flyable: McDonnell-Douglas F-4E Phantom II Bell AH-1S Cobra Mil Mi-24P Hind General Dynamics F-16C Block 50 Mikoyan Gurevich MiG-19P/S Farmer-B Mikoyan Gurevich MiG-23MLA Flogger-G McDonnell Douglas F-15E Strike Eagle MBB BO-105 CAC/PAC JF-17 Thunder Grumman A-6E Intruder Modern Era Assets: China Asset Pack - various ships, missiles and defence systems of Modern China (looks to be a free upgrade to be included natively to DCS in the future) South Atlantic Asset Pack - various ships, missiles and defence systems for South Atlantic Map (Falklands) (payware/freeware status unknown) Maps/Theatres: Syria Afghanistan Straits of Dover South Atlantic Map (Falklands) Iwo Jima - NB: Speculative. Originally planned with Corsair but the breakup of Leatherneck, Magnitude LLC have put this on hold. ???? - Heatblur had originally planned a theatre map for coincidental release with F-14, however this is currently also on hold but apparently the will is there. Hints suggested something that could be both F-14 and Viggen appropriate...Baltic/Scandinavia?

    Lockon Platinum/ Lockon MAC / Lockon ACS - work with DCS ?

    Alas, inadvertently FT is correct. A long time ago when Flaming Cliffs was released I think there was an upgrade fee to bring the LOMAC content into it, but since then there have been so many upgrades and platform evolutions that it's essentially different software. Short answer, as FT so succinctly put it, is no.

    Expensive deterrent to the Argies?

    New Game Launcher, New Set Up

    Air Combat Group - a mix of RAF & Lufty squads who congregated online to do realistic CloD campaigns back when CloD was more popular. Like Storm of War but a closed group. Got some good vids out there, some good pilots too. https://www.aircombatgroup.co.uk/

    It's a rare pleasure to engage in a little synchronised tanking with your chum...

    If they release a decent template at start I'll make some VF-4426 (DDZ = 4,4,26) custom skins with the DD logo on the tail!
