New FLAK effects:

Cool. I have to admit it is a sim dream of mine to face the kind of AAA you saw on those CNN videos from the Gulf War. I’d love to fly an F-15E, F/A-18, or Tornado to Baghdad someday. Great to see progress on so many fronts lately.

And from Matt’s recent interview on The Flare Path:

RPS: MBot’s dynamic campaigns for DCS World seem popular. Have they influenced ED’s thinking at all?

Matt: While we certainly applaud his efforts, we have much bigger plans for DCS World on this front. We are pursuing much more ambitious plans that incorporate community, cause-and-effect continuity, strategic and tactical goals, player performance tracking and rewards, and accounting for time periods.

A bit too early to go into more detail, but this is very much a high priority for us moving forward post-2.5.

Exciting times!

Yeah, I have been waiting for this type of AAA for a long time, and hope it will open it up for more modern systems as well.


#4

Oh Sith… you have no idea how happy seeing that new flak makes me! Now if we could only get a DCS B-17… I could die happy :smiley:


#5

Looks pretty :slight_smile: did not seem to be too deadly though. Does it model actual flak damage ?


#6

Oh Chuck, you have no idea how long I have been beating the FLAK drum behind the scenes, it makes me really happy to see it coming to life…


#7

Oh yes, its deadly…


#8

I’m glad someone is taking as much interest as myself in the WWII scene of DCS.


#9

If a DCS level Crewable Flying Fortress is ever announced, someone will have to make sure I’m sitting down when receiving the news…


#10

If razbam does the c130, might be a good start.


#11

Plus the Yak will provide a radial engine model…


#12

TB3 FTW :slight_smile:


#13

Finally FlaK.


#14

This is great. Together with the new fragmentation damage, this will hopefully pave the way for Cold War and modern AAA.


#15

Plus the biplane will provide the… comedy?


#16

Tonight on MudSpike,

A bunch of geeks re-enact the movie Memphis Belle.

And it would be glorious.


#17

Who’s playing Samwise Gamegee? (he actually was in that movie… took me a while to recognize him)


#18

Rudy?


#19

I was actually impressed by Nathan Fillion in Saving Private Ryan. Yes, google it up, he’s in there.


#20

WOW he was the wrong Ryan!
