DCS WWII Normandy

Post  Speed on Sat Dec 31, 2016 2:55 pm

You probably got the same e-mail from ED as I, but just to document this announcement within the forum, here is the good news.

The main event this year though was the Early Access release of DCS: Spitfire LF Mk. IX. The huge project to recreate this legendary British fighter included the virtual reconstruction of the external model, cockpit, systems and flight dynamics. We are proud to add this to our stable of DCS World War II aircraft. In 2017, our Spitfire work will continue with bug fixes and the addition of bombs and an external fuel tank.

Our next big World War II event will be the Early Access release of the DCS: Normandy 1944 map in the 1st quarter of 2017. The postponement of this release was the result of two primary factors:

DCS: Normandy 1944 will be the first DCS World map to use our new lighting system. As a result, we have had to remake all landscape textures and objects. This has been a massive task, but we believe it will be worth the time and effort.
As our first map for DCS: World War II, a great deal of time and effort has gone into creating many new period objects like tanks, trucks, air defense units, trains, ships, and AI bombers. We are also creating many objects that make up the "Atlantic Wall" along the Normandy coast. We believe these objects are essential for making great missions.
We hope these efforts will bring DCS: World War II to new level for us.

Did he say bombers!!!!! Oh boy, I can hear those cannons cracking now.

P.S.

As I progress with my P51D training I can say with some satisfaction that I no longer get shot down every time, an now turning the tide against that lowly and pesky Average Me 109 pilot and am starting to score victories now that my flying and gunnery skills are taking shape (my biggest enemy continues to be gravity). I can taxi without problem, my take-offs are coming along nicely, but my landings are of biblical disaster proportions (best landings so far have come from engine seizures and forgetting to lower my landing gear). I should be sorted out by the time this new map and the Spitfire are released.

Happy New Year to all (probably 2017 already down under).

For landing, the best advice I can give is fly down the runway. Get as lined up as you can when you hit the threshold and just fly down the strip as close to the ground as you can manage but not touching down. That will give you more time to let your speed bleed off while still keeping it straight and level. Also, as soon as you get in the cockpit, memorize the '3 point attitude' of the aircraft so that you can make sure you flare to as close as that as you can when you touch. Remember, better to get the tail down first than the front wheels.

But really, just fly down the runway. As long as the aircraft is still moving, you're flying it.
