Latest release includes the HARM for the F18 - at last!

Not 100% effective - its basic, but pretty easy to use.

Some more news:

https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/news/2019-01-11_PLANS2/

 Last week we discussed the many aircraft projects that will be under development in 2019. Today, let’s look at some of the non-aircraft projects. As noted last week though, we cannot promise all of these will be released in 2019, but they will all be under focused development.
Ships

Although we released a greatly improved and free Nimitz-class aircraft carrier at the time of the Hornet release, we are also working on a separate Nimitz-class aircraft carrier module. This product will have an incredible level of detail and include such features as a detailed and operable LSO and Air Boss stations, detailed modeling of the hangar, animated deck crew, briefing room, and control of the carrier.

Once this project is complete, the team will finish up the Arleigh Burke-class destroyer and then return to and release the updated Kuznetsov-class aircraft carrier.
Radio Communications

The biggest radio communications task are the aircraft carrier communications that includes CASE I, CASE II, and CASE III for departure, marshal, approach, and the Landing Signal Officer (LSO). Once this massive task is complete, we will move on to an overhaul of the airbase radio communications.
New Maps

With 2018 we saw the release of the DCS: Persian Gulf Map. For 2019 we and our partners are working on two new World War II maps, a Syria map, a Falkland Islands map, and a new free map that we’ll discuss later in the year.

In parallel, we will be finishing up the Persian Gulf map with the addition of Liwa Airbase and Ras Al Khaimah airport; Al Ain Air War College; ruins near Shiraz, Kerman, and Bam; and fix remaining bugs. Once complete, it will be the largest DCS World map as measured from airfield to airfield.
Dynamic Campaign

While a hangar of great aircraft is certainly a wonderful thing, having an engaging, exciting, and dynamic combat environment to fly them is equally important. We recognize that and have been developing the inner-workings of a dynamic campaign system for DCS World. This development will continue into 2019 and create a simulation with the simulation of a real-time campaign systems that has each side fighting for dominance across the map. Based on the strategic goals and tactical situations, the systems will create dynamic Air Tasking Orders (ATO) that players then join to help their side to victory. It will be epic!
DCS World Online

In the closing weeks of 2018, we began making the Dedicated Server software available to a handful of trusted 3rd party online servers. Based on their feedback, we have been tuning and expanding the Dedicated Server software to best suit customer needs.

One aspect of the Dedicated Server we are also exploring is the availability of free maps to Dedicated Server hosts.

In addition to the Dedicated Server, the team has also been at work developing an integrated Voice Over IP (VOIP) system for DCS World. The first phase will allow users to use and create “rooms” and the second phase would integrate the VOIP into in-cockpit radio controls.

As mentioned in last week’s newsletter about Modern Air Combat (MAC), we also plan to include leader boards, rankings, and other online statistics for DCS World online players.
DCS World Foundation

In parallel to all the above, the team continues to work on the foundation items of DCS World like air and ground artificial intelligence, performance optimization, more detailed damage models for all unit types, Vulkan implementation, improved VR optimization and improved Touch controller support, wake turbulence from aircraft.

I've tried, but can't access the server settings menu. But hey, no worries Kunz, that makes sense.

Oh, I didn't create the discord. Pappavis did. I just joined it  ;)

I think Papps has the rights to change the title I guess

Many thanks Kunz, highly appreciated!

If you could change the title to 159th_Guards_Aviation_Regiment, or 159th GAR for short, that would be fantastic!

Cheers,

Ax

Time and effort, there always seems to be other priorities at hand. However, I promise I will try and set it up and test on a MP server that's using it.

As for Discord, I have no idea if we have a 'thingy' set up.

I think in future when some may want to fly in modules such as the coming F14 and others that you can multi crew having intercom channels via the radios would be very useful. I’ve downloaded it but not given it a proper go yet but I think it would bring a new dimension to the flying experience. I don’t know much about discord though. Do we have an account?

Switch over to Simple Radio guys, it is much more immersive. As Fusion says, if you use Simple Radio and Discord, no need for Teamspeak and thus zero cost for communications.

It is a pain to setup, well, at least for me, but once done, it is very nice to use.
