Dcs: World (& P-51D) Gone Gold!

Recommended Posts

Whoot!

Get DCS: World (1.2.0) here: http://www.digitalco...pos=137&lang=en

then when you've installed that go get the finalised P-51 goodness here: http://www.digitalco...pos=136&lang=en

Note the most awesome changes!:

List of changes since last version:

Exit simulation crash fixed.

Canopy crank hung on slow machines. Now fixed.

Improvements to aircraft shake effect.

Fixed that when the battery is drained, all electrical systems (except starter), are still functional.

Removed Bomb racks and hardpoints when the Civil Aircraft box is checked in the ME.

Landing gear eight wheel rolls too fast compared to left wheel. Fixed.

From a runway start, Mustang's landing light pointed straight down. Fixed.

Oxygen system flow rates at altitude implemented.

The headgear-depending-on-skin and the ability to lose the hardpoints are bits of eyecandy that made me grin, but it's the presence of FFB that's really got my juices flowing! Whoot!

I'm confused DCS is free, and you pay for the P-51 correct?

I have already got DCS Black Shark and A10 Warthog via Steam. Do I need the DCS world aswell as Mustang?

Download the A10 module and DCS world and you should be able to fly that with us

If you want the fly the mustang in a mission, just buy, download and install that module in DCS World.

DCS World is the core game, containing all the units etc.

The individual modules contain the cockpit data and such, thereby, you can fly in any mission provided you have at least 1 of the planes types.

Although I can heartily recommend the Mustang, sure is the nicest prop aircraft I have seen in a game.

Right...so Steam versions aren't any good as they can't be directed to work with 'World'?

They are, well the codes rather. All you need to do Sid is to download DCS world and the modules and you can copy the serial code from Steam.

I bought my DCS warthog that way.

Sweet, I'll be on TS if anyone wants some help.

Just be wary, the torque of the 'stang is like riding a bucking bronco if you just push the throttle. You have to treat the old girl nicely or she will bite your face off.

Smoking and airplanes full of ammo and fuel do not mix Rog.
