DCS World

  • New Launcher that allows you to configure and manage DCS prior to starting the program.
  • New Multiplayer “Select Role” interface added to enhance respawn functionality with additional information and the ability to see exact respawn locations on the map and interact with them. Note that spawn locations icons are aggregated based on the map zoom level. A “Server” tab has been added in the briefing images panel in the Mission Editor. This allows you to add an image as a header to the first screen that the connected player sees before joining a coalition. We will monitor feedback for future adjustments and additional features.
  • New Dynamic Respawn slots system has been added that allows mission designers to set up airfields serving any aircraft respawn its associated warehouse without the need of specific placement in the editor. Airfields with active dynamic spawns are specifically marked on the map with a hexagon icon. Parking spots are assigned automatically on a respawn request. We are coordinating with MOOSE, MIST and CTLD developers for supporting these new spawn methods in their scripts (Thank you Pikey, funkyfranky, Grimes, and Ciribob). Additionally, a specific dynamic spawns template system was added to customise dynamic slots properties and restrictions. Detailed description here
  • AI Ground. Added the ability for SAM to evade ARM (enabled by default, but can be disabled in Set Options - Evasion of ARM). Units that detect the missile will turn off their radar(s) and displace. Units that cannot move quickly will simply turn off their radar(s). The higher the skill level, the higher the likelihood that the air defence unit will react to the incoming ARM
  • AI. Performance-demanding logic of target detection and line of sight checks have been moved to a parallel thread. This gives more headroom for the performance, especially on AI-populated dedicated servers with large scale battles. This applies to ground, sea and airborne AI units.

  • Important: Due to capitalization changes not propagating properly at times, the "\...\sdef\Jester\contacts" folder is named incorrectly, which will cause none of the essential JESTER calls from that folder to be played. Our sincere apologies. This will be fixed in the coming patch properly, however in the meantime you can apply an easy fix yourself, if you please, after finishing the update:
    • STANDALONE USERS: Either delete the "DCS World\Mods\aircraft\f4e\Sounds\sdef\Jester\contacts" folder and run a DCS repair, and it will get restored correctly by DCS or manually rename it to use a capital C.
    • STEAM USERS: Manually rename it from "\...\sdef\Jester\contacts" to "\...\sdef\Jester\Contacts" (simply with a capital "C" instead).
  • Note: Deleting the folder and running a repair only works for the DCS standalone version. Steam users need to rename the folder manually, please. Manually renaming the folder works for both versions.
  • Sedlo's "Have Doughnut" instant action mission has been fixed based on recent user feedback, but could not be included with this patch anymore. If you like, you can download it and replace the one in: "DCS World\Mods\aircraft\f4e\Missions\Quickstart".

  • The AP light test now needs AC power to take place.
  • Flight control system test now needs AC power to start.
  • Fixed wheel brakes control in F1BE - right brake command was also moving the left brake, while left brake command was doing nothing.
  • F1BE pitch/roll/rudder trim positions are synchronised in multicrew now.
  • Added PBL 201 2300 l fuel tank to flyable versions of F1. Weight, balance and aerodynamics are accounted for.
  • Fixed bug in which, when central and right external fuel tanks were mounted, no fuel was consumed.
  • Brake warning light no longer turns on when actuating the brakes if the gear is deployed without weight on wheels.
  • Several Hydraulic System fixes were made:
    • Circuit 1 and 2 accumulators were not working correctly, now fixed.
    • Combat flaps and brake lights logic was incorrect with engine off, now fixed.
  • Added AC electric (400 Hz) cockpit sound.
  • The seat height is now initialised before the simulation is unpaused at mission start. It eliminates a sudden pilot head position move once the simulation has started.
  • F1BE: Fixed not moving rear seat rudder trim switch, when using keyboard.
  • The seat height adjustment switches clickspots are correctly initialised now to eliminate clickspot position misalignments before the seat is moved for the first time.
  • F1BE: Added keybinds for rear seat height adjustment.
  • F1BE: Forward canopy now cannot be lowered and closed before the rear canopy is closed and locked.
  • Added separate input commands for stages 1 and 2 of the radar elevation increase/decrease buttons.
  • Added 'Disable force feedback effects' option to the module options.
  • Pilot flight controls are set to neutral now when the pilot has lost consciousness.

  • The movement speed for pilot stick and rudder by keyboard was increased by a factor of two.
  • Now it is possible to click the throttle out from ‘Stop’ position, disregarding the actual throttle axis input. Then, the throttle will be animated in the cockpit to the actual axis input position.

Communications:

  • Added "Radio Selector Box defaults" section in the module options with default volume potentiometers positions.
  • Now any of the default Voice Chat 'cockpit VoIP PTT' commands ('r.1', 'r.2', etc) can be used to activate transmission. It is made to reduce player effort to config (or deconflict between modules) Voice Chat input settings. Pressing any of those commands will activate Voice Chat transmission via the currently selected radio.
  • Now both default Voice Chat 'cockpit int VoIP PTT' input commands can be used to activate crew communication in F1BE (given that "F1BE intercom hot mic always enabled" option is unchecked in the module options).
  • Fixed radio status being incorrectly displayed as grey box (i.e. 'is turned off') in Voice Chat at hot start.
  • Added "F1BE intercom hot mic always enabled" option to the module options, though Hot Mic itself is not operating correctly yet. Please use a default Voice Chat key command to talk to the crewmember (with this option unchecked).

Pilot flight controls:

  • Throttle will not make an abrupt jump to the actual position anymore when the joystick is moved for the first time after the mission was started.
  • F1B: Stick, rudder and throttle are now always at the same position at both seats.
  • F1BE: Now another seat afterburner detent position is correctly taken into account, if it was modified in module options.
  • F1BE: Fixed resulting stick position when Force Feedback is enabled only in one of the two seats.
  • F1BE: Throttle will not jump anymore when the second crew member joins.
  • F1BE: Throttle transition between own and other seat input axis positions is now smoothly animated, when the FM control is transferred between seats.

Controls Indicator:

  • F1BE: With Combined Controls Mode disabled, and when another crewmember is present, the Controls Indicator now displays: a) other seat control input (grey index) when our seat has FM control, or b) own seat control input (white index) when other seat has FM control. In Combined Controls Mode white/grey symbols work as before.
  • The throttle control input (white index) is additionally displayed in all F1 versions. It can be observed, with another crewmember being absent, when the input axis is moved with the throttle being at ‘Stop’.
  • Stick/rudder positions now account for trim settings. Same applies to other seat controls positions in F1BE.
  • F1BE. Controls Indicator now displays 'C' symbol before 'F' and 'R' symbols, when the Combined Controls Mode is enabled.

Miscellaneous:

  • Default 6DOF view restrictions are now available again for user modifications (now can be edited in ViewsF1Cmn.lua).
  • Throttle handle and pilot hand got animation in the external 3D model.
  • Module options dialog was updated - Force Feedback related options were arranged as a visually separate group.
  • Cockpit tooltip and the corresponding command name in inputs for 'Air conditioning auto/manual switch' are now the same.

  • Fixed batteries being constantly overheated when flying at high altitudes for quite a long time.
  • Changed the module options tab name from 'C-101EB' to 'C-101'.
  • The idle cutoff clickspot on the throttle handle is hidden now when the throttle is advanced forward from its idle position.
  • Now it is possible to click the throttle out from ‘Stop’ position, disregarding the actual throttle axis input. Then, the throttle will be animated in the cockpit to the actual axis input position.

Communications:

  • Added 'Audio Control Panel defaults' options group to module options with default volume potentiometers positions.
  • Now any of the default Voice Chat 'cockpit VoIP PTT' input commands ('r.1', 'r.2', etc) as well as both 'cockpit int VoIP PTT' commands can be used to activate transmission. It is made to reduce payer effort to config (or deconflict between modules) Voice Chat input settings. Pressing any of those commands will activate Voice Chat transmission via the currently selected radio.

Pilot flight controls:

  • Stick, rudder and throttle are now always at the same position at both seats.
  • With Combined Controls Mode disabled, stick, rudder, and throttle will be animated to the new positions according to the other seat controls input, when FM control is transferred between seats. I.e. there will be no immediate jump to the new positions. FM will take this into account, thus avoiding abrupt aircraft trajectory changes, or engine stress in the case of throttle input.

Controls Indicator:

  • With Combined Controls Mode disabled, and when another crewmember is present, the Controls Indicator now displays: a) other seat control input (grey index) when our seat has FM control, or b) own seat control input (white index) when other seat has FM control. In Combined Controls Mode white/grey symbols work as before.
  • The throttle control input (white index) can be observed now, with another crewmember being absent, when the input axis is moved with the throttle being at ‘Stop’.
  • Controls Indicator now displays 'C' symbol before 'F' and 'R' symbols, when the Combined Controls Mode is enabled.
