DCS World

DCS: F/A-18C Hornet by ED

DCS: F-16C Viper by ED

DCS: MiG-21bis by Magnitude 3 LLC

  • Added Phase 1 Radar glass screen cover
  • Added Phase 1 Radar indicator lights
  • Added Phase 1 T-4, T-6, and T-10 indicator lights

DCS: Christen Eagle II by Magnitude 3 LLC

  • Fixed propeller animation at idle

DCS: C-101 by AvioDev

  • Engine won't stall now when using emergency fuel lever with engine computer off
  • Now it's not so easy to get engine stall when moving throttle abruptly is engine computer is off
  • Changed the name of "computer total failure" for "failure of auto and manual modes (back-up mode)"
  • Added specific normal inverter and standby inverter failures, apart from both inverters failure already present
  • Implemented caution lights of normal and standby inverter failure
  • Normal and standby inverters failure logic:
    • After a failure of normal inverter there is an automatic switching to standby inverter, if CB Normal Inverter is IN
    • When there is an inverter failure, the corresponding caution light will illuminate, unless the pilot sets the inverter switch to the position of the working inverter
  • Added several new liveries made by "Etten" for Chile and Spain
  • Added realistic engine sound, though it’s still much WIP yet, especially cockpit sound. Expect further improvements in subsequent updates
  • Fixed the bug that caused total loss of electrical power when both batteries and bus tie were disconnected. Now the secondary bus still works, as it should (and the essential bus if essential transfer is engaged)
  • Fixed several other electrical system issues
  • Updated Caucasus hard mission and added Caucasus extremely hard mission:
    Using anti-ice system will now prevent ice accretion in hard mission, while it will still be a problem in extremely hard mission since it takes place in stormy weather

DCS F-14B by Heatblur simulations

  • NEW: Introducing NAVGRID for the TID
  • Added Jester functionality for Navgrid
  • Added Navgrid section to the manual
  • Make Jester switch to wide FOV on TCS more reliably when target becomes too large, including when TCS is tracking without radar STT
  • Increased IR signature for the F-14
  • Added AIM-7MH (aka AIM-7M H-build) to loadout
  • Further tweaks to Afterburner cone pending new afterburner effects
  • Fixed triggers for "HB Tomcat Iran Flogger Faceoff Coop" mission
  • Fix for IP to TGT settings not synced in multicrew (for CMPTR/IP bombing)
  • TCS: you can now fire phoenix and sparrow missiles on targets that have the radar slaved to TCS; WIP/not yet implemented: lock azimuth to TCS angle for RDR supersearch
  • Removed baking residue from cookies: black helmet knob shadow removed on default liveries
  • Show more accurate radar altimeter reading on carrier deck
  • Allow hooking datalink targets on TID in all radar modes
  • Fix: Allow half-action HCU slewing in TV mode to override slave to STT for TCS direction
  • Fixed floating RIO mirror
  • Fix HUD glow visibility
  • Fix RIO console & instrument light brightness step keybinds
  • Increased brightness of LANTIRN panel lights & text
  • Increased brightness of RIO cockpit buttons/controls
  • Tweaked missile loadout drag values on all stations
  • Fixed double fuel weight assigned to ac on carrier spawn
  • Possible fix to right engine not starting on spawn
  • Improved lead pursuit steering solution for missile launches
  • Fixes to TALD loadout definition for Jester menu naming
  • Fixes to TALD drag influence
  • Fix CTD when trying to enter lat/long for location hook
  • Added JF-17 VID/ recognition callouts for JESTER
  • Added JF-17 to the RWR threat library as '17'
  • Added all variants of Tornado to the RWR threat library as 'TO'
  • Added utility kneeboard charts for radar elevation
  • Added utility kneeboard charts for scan bars
  • Updated both versions of Cage the Bear Campaign. Thank you Kaba!
  • Fixed Jester Navgrid Reference manual entry being stuck after first use
  • Possible fix for idle lockup RPM bug
  • Tweaked damage probabilities for the engine (the engine will take damage more consistently from direct missile hits to the aircraft)
  • Adjusted damage thresholds for aerodynamics/structures (the airframe, structure and flight surfaces will take damage more consistently from direct missile hits to the aircraft)
  • Tuned AB thrust for top speeds after stores drag improvements
  • Further increased full flap drag when deployed above 275 KIAS

DCS AJS-37 by Heatblur Simulations

  • Aircraft now repairable
  • Adjusted acceleration at height. Fixed bug with abrupt deceleration at M1.85/1.72
  • Corrected HUD height information when setting altitude reference via HÖJD switch
  • Fixed sounds and heatblur from engine while the engine is shut off
  • NEW!: Added “Wrath of Thunder” (Caucasus) Campaign - Climb back into the cockpit, directly following the events that happened in "The Mjolnir Response". Help to end the war in Georgia. Enjoy!
  • NEW!: Added Pilot Body in Cockpit + associated keybinds
