Mudspike DCS World Fly-In: April 16-17

It’s that time again — dust off your HOTAS, pull your checklists out from underneath your tax forms, test out your head-tracker, and freshen up on weapons deliveries — Mudspike is having another DCS World Fly-In!

There are always a variety of module slots available over the Mudspike Fly-In.

Just like the last fly-in, participation is free and open to all levels of experience and confidence:

  • Newcomers are welcome and their questions will be patiently answered, sometimes even by knowledgeable people. ?
  • More experienced folks can meet up with others to work on advanced topics: multiple-ship operations, formations, etc.
  • Splinter sessions can be created for specific desires or needs: introduction to formation flying, radio navigation, weapons employment, aerial refueling, helicopter basics, etc.

To join the fun, you will need the latest stable version of DCS World (currently 1.5, and available for free from the Digital Combat Simulator website). At some point over the weekend, we’re sure to have servers running the open-alpha 2.0 with flights over the Nevada Test and Training Range.

Although not required, voice comms are strongly recommended. Log in to the Mudspike Teamspeak 3 server to join in the fun!

Teamwork is fun and fierce.

There are no sign-ups, no assessment tests, no fees, no required modules, no required modifications. Just join up and enjoy!

If you’ve been putting off playing multiplayer because it’s just too daunting, or if you’ve been longing to practice tactical formations or advanced BFM with a human instead of robotic AI, now is the time!

Here’s just a snippet of what you missed last time:

Woot! The Hollo Pointe server will be loaded up and ready.

looking good! but nothing organised for open beta?

What’s the point? Most of the time they are the same version anyway.

I’m in the process of gathering information and reading up on the Albatros for the fly-in, especially the ZA. The L-39C/ZA multi pit workshop is a go.

The public release should be stable, an important characteristic for a community event, and DCS 2.0 is the only place we can fly NTTR. Of course, if enough folks are interested, I’m sure an open-beta server will pop up. Anything in particular you’re looking for from the open beta, @Sryan?

No, I’m sorry. I didn’t even know stable and beta where on the same version most of the time.

I will “join” you on board Austrian Airlines Boeing (as passenger=spectator :smile: ) departing on 16th from MIA and arriving on 17th at VIE :wink:
