DCS 2.7 Discussion

You mean that magenta thingy…?

Ah, yeah, I get it!

Oh right that button!

I vaguely remember trying that but I think I had already been too traumatized by all of the inadvertent sideways maneuvering, hovers that didn’t stop remotely where I was aiming them to and general tipping over that accompanied most missions.

That’s how an LSO looks after you’ve taken LSD.

Dear @Troll I thought this may be of interest


It is indeed! :sunglasses:

Is anyone else Having a DCS Crash/Freeze with Hornet in VR while selecting A/G mode in cockpit?..Happens in every mission…A/A mode is fine…looked through DCS Bugs forum but didn’t see anything…very strange.

I get a freeze in the Hornet for about a second going to AG, and I think it’s to do with the ground radar loading up and displaying. Not sure of a workaround and I’ve never got a crash from it, just a freeze, but you could try turning off the radar or trying to do it in different stages?

Ok Thank You…The trouble is I have no options after hitting the A/G Mode in Cockpit…just freeze…take off headset and see a DCS error on screen…this is after latest OB update.

Is your radar on? If it is try turning it off before going into AG mode.

Have you emptied out your saved games fxo folder and ran full repair?

Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends, :pilotfly:

It is with great pleasure that we announce 2.7 has moved to DCS World Stable. We would like to thank you for your continued support and detailed bug reports.

Today, we are also introducing a new Free to Play program that lets you evaluate all of our modules (aircraft and maps) for 14 days. You can play each module sequentially for 14 days or any number of them at a time. Once you have ‘consumed’ the 14 days, you will be given another 14 day free trial period for all modules six months later. Enjoy the offer and please tell your friends! Check out the video here.

DCS: F-16C Viper has been receiving some important attention. Recently, the GBU-31 and GBU-38 JDAM bombs have been added, and they are currently in internal testing. We are working at full power to iron out existing Air-to-Air Radar and Navigation System bugs, and these fixes should be released soon to an Open Beta.

In April, we conducted preliminary CFD research of R-27 missiles family aerodynamics. The focus of this research was zero-lift drag correction and missile ballistic refinement. Please read our R-27 Missile Family Report.

Thank you for your passion and support.

Yours sincerely,

Eagle Dynamics Team

Free Trials

14 Day Access


Fly the DCS: F/A-18C Hornet for two weeks and then DCS: F-16C Viper for another two. You can download new terrains at the same time, whatever you fancy. Each module will give you 14 days to evaluate and enjoy them without any limitations or obligations. If you’ve tried a module and aren’t 100% certain about purchasing, you can re-evaluate six months later. Campaigns are excluded.

And for all newcomers to DCS, you can benefit from a 50% joining discount on your first purchase, whether you buy one module or the whole library! Spread the news.

We truly hope our new free to play system will give you the flexibility you need to enjoy each module and make informed purchase decisions. Thank you!

We apologize that this offer cannot also be made available on Steam.

F-16C Viper

Development Roadmap


In the next Open Beta, you will receive the GBU-31 and GBU-38 JDAM for the Viper! We are now working on fixing outstanding bugs related to the Air-to-Air Radar and Navigation Systems. Enhancements are also being made to the Flight Model in regards to available G and angle of attack modeling.

Once we have addressed the critical issues, we will focus our Viper efforts on completing important Air-to-Air Radar functions: DTT SAM mode, bullseye, intercept steering cue, ACM Slew, and more. The Helmet Mounted Cueing System (HMCS) with the HARM Targeting System (HTS), Link 16, Air-to-Ground Mode, and IFF will also be integrated. The AGM-154 JSOW and the ALQ-131 and ALQ-184 electronic countermeasure pods are also next in line to be added.

Supercarrier Deck Crew

Development Report


DCS: Supercarrier has received a number of notable updates to the deck crew that includes improved meshes and geometry tweaks:

  • Plane director “Shooter” model has been edited to include skinning and geometry corrections.
  • Improved mesh and skinning for the hands and gloves.
  • A completely new and anatomically correct skeleton for the hands.
  • The sailor head model has been replaced with a much more realistic one.
  • The airboss model has been improved with improved hands and removed beer belly.
  • Missing Level Of Details (LOD) have been added for all models.
  • All seated and standing poses have been corrected and improved.
  • Fixed excessive bending animation of the legs while walking.
  • Fixed sliding legs.
  • Fixed the intersection of arms and legs.
  • Several new idle animations have been added for a more natural look.
  • Mesh and skinning have been adjusted at the elbow area to reduce the effect of no mass.
  • All the models have been converted to a new version of the skeleton that will provide more natural movements.

R-27 Missile

Development Report


In April of this year, we conducted preliminary Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) research of the R-27 family of missile aerodynamics. The objective was the correction of zero-lift drag and missile ballistics refinement. As a result of this research, the zero-lift drag coefficient was reduced for all R-27 missile types. Please read our R-27 Missile Family Report.

Thank you for your trust, passion and support.

You make our dreams come true.

HOLY WOW! This Free Trial thing is BLOODY great! :smiley:


I wonder if they have seen an increase in sales after the free trial weeks they have had before…?
This could be a nice gateway drug to get new simmers hooked.


It obviously worked well. Classic pusher technique. First bump is free, after that the heroin gets progressively more expensive as the user client falls deeper into the throes of addiction and dependency.
