Valve to allow Mod Makers to sell on Steam

Today, 01:53 AM
Posted by Tom_Weiss In: LockOnFiles Portal Articles

As you all know, our website exists to support our Community and its Mod makers - and we have been doing it these past ten years.


When we started , Lock On Modern Air Combat was the focus of our interest. Many things changed since then , Mod making is not what it used to be and our focus diversified to include FSX-P3D and DCS.


Now something quite big took place - these news while not directly concerning our community can, in time, have far reaching consequences for our hobby.




Valve has implemented a major change to the Steam Workshop that gives modders the option to sell their creations directly to gamers in an open, unregulated market.


"We think this is a great opportunity to help support the incredible creative work being done by mod makers in the Steam Workshop," said Valve's Tom Bui in a statement. "User generated content is an increasingly significant component of many games, and opening new avenues to help financially support those contributors via Steam Workshop will help drive the level of UGC to new heights

DCS World news - February 2015

27 Feb 2015
Posted by Tom_Weiss In: LockOnFiles Portal Articles

The developers of DCSW posted some interesting news about where they stand in developing new add ons as well as DCSW v2/Edge:


- DCS World 2 and Edge seem to be nearing a public release, in alpha release format.


- DCS: Nevada Test and Training Map is almost finished, it is hard to believe it, but it seems to be true.


- DCS: P-47D Thunderbolt (and not DCS: Spitfire IX) will be released first, the 'when' is not so soon apparently.


- DCS: F/A-18C Hornet Air to Ground radar is progressing well


hopefully after so much waiting we will indeed see some tangible progress and that will makes us all happy.

DCS F/A-18C news

02 Mar 2015
Posted by Tom_Weiss In: LockOnFiles Portal Articles

In an effort to revert some expectations on the progress of their next module - the developers of DCS posted some new info and screenshots of the F-18 cockpit a few days ago , it is good to learn that it is indeed not a mythical module ;)


No, it’s not a myth. Work on the Hornet continues with great progress on the air-to-surface radar. The real beam mapping mode is just about done, and once complete, the team will start work on the various sub-modes. This has been a critical new technology that had to be developed from scratch for this project.
Included in this newsletter is the current status of the 6 DOF cockpit. It is still very much a work-in-progress but project development is now accelerating.

Installing P3D v2.5

18 Feb 2015
Posted by Tom_Weiss In: LockOnFiles Portal Articles

I rather have a root canal done than re-installing P3D or FSX as it is a laborious, time consuming rather frustrating experience. It is fraught with dangers specially for those that want it back being 'just the way I am used to and like it to be'.


A few days ago P3D v2.5 was released without a patch install - that means a full new install. At first I hesitated, but since Lockheed Martin is the type of developer that delivers, I decided to do it. Curiosity got the better of me.


The results were excellent and the process was smooth , I wrote a short guide on how to do it, you can read it here.
