DCS OpenBeta Version Update 20-03-20

Recommended Posts

At last! Let's hope the majority of the performance/Carrier Ops/Netcode issues are mitigated if not wholesale solved by this patch.


Warning! - it's 4GB... :tongue9:



DCS World

Hydra 70 rocket. Adjusted drag, corrected motor data. The rocket began to fly a little slower
MP. Stennis. Can't start from 3rd cat - fixed
AIM-7, AIM-120, R-27, R-77 missiles. Loft and HOJ trajectories on the net clients will be closer to the host (delivery aircraft) trajectory
Leader Vehicle. Move crash - fixed
Get Target State For Car crash - fixed
AIM-120. Fixed bug where loft trajectory was dependent on missile heading
MP. Fixed occasional crash at artillery fire
Some memory leaks in the terrain sources were fixed
Crash when AI helicopters collect troops - fixed

DCS C-101 Aviojet by AvioDev
Seat movement sound correctly stops now when reaching max position, if moving it from one end to the other
Adjusted reset speed of accelerometer needles according to real behaviour
Implemented safety pin of canopy fracturing handle
Modified fracturing handle
Ejection mode selection lever is now functional: by default, it ejects instructor and then pilot, but can be switched off to allow for independent ejection
Fixed ejection pin state initialization at cold start
Both ejection seat handle pin and canopy fracturing handle pin store now in their corresponding compartment, map box or soft Velcro case
Fixed erroneous cabin pressure value at altitude. Behaviour for large differences of pressure is also modified
1020 Hz radio test tone is heard now again
Fixed external lights initialization
Added Ejection Seat Priority Lever ON/OFF control input
Clickable cockpit is now conforming to DCS standards. Both C-101 EB and C-101CC
Corrected Generator OFF position when using control input, it now correctly sets to OFF
Solved longitudinal stability problems. The airplane now behaves correctly in flight (good stability) and during takeoff and landing. No more issues with nose down tendency after landing and nose up "jumping" after takeoff
Left console interior red light in the rear cockpit does not deploy the emergency gear extension handle any more
Fixed emergency fuel korry button light that was not illuminating when pressed
Fixed C-101CC trim. It now has a correct range of +6.5 and -2.0
Landing lights will now be in taxi position when starting on runway
Dimmers brightness decreases now when rotating clockwise, when rotated completely the light will go off
Removed Mk-84 from the C-101CC inventory and removed BR-500 from center pylons, those weapons exceed the maximum authorized weight that may be carried by the underwing pylons

DCS Mirage 2000c by RAZBAM
Added Head to VR Pilot's Shadow


Radar HOTAS "TDC CENTER" changed to "TDC DEPRESS (Lock Target)". Its unique function is to lock AA targets
Radar HOTAS "STT/TWS Toggle (Target Lock)" changed to "STT/TWS Toggle"
With a locked AA target: toggles between STT/TWS tracking modes (same as before)
With the radar on SCAN and no locked AA target, it selects the default lock mode for AA targets: STT or TWS. The default lock mode can be overridden by the toggle switch but upon target unlock will go back to its default
Guns default firing mode: TOT and PAR either in AA or CAS. Mode will reset to default when deselecting the weapon
Rockets default firing mode: TOT. Mode will reset to default when deselecting the weapon
S530D Salvo mode is disabled
Default switches position when starting in the air:
Radar Altimeter is active (Switches in M and H respectively)
Radar is on EM mode
DDM is OFF (if it is mounted)
DDM (IR Missile detector) is now unmounted and OFF by default
FBW "too slow" sound logic updated
AP "Gong" Sound logic updated
AP Roll limit updated
AP Track Index behavior fixed
Display Changes:

S530D SVI Brackets have been deleted. They do not exist in the M-2000C
S530D G and D are now circled all the time. They indicate that the missile seeker head is locked on the target
Radar TDC is now available in SIL and EM modes
TWS/STT (PID/PIC) lock mode legend is now visible at all times in both SIL and EM modes. It indicates the radar default lock mode (with no locked target) or the current target lock mode
CCRP Target cross "+" has been deleted. This is a M-2000D feature only
