• Website code update

      Posted (edited)

      We have still a few very nagging problems to fix - mostly in our downloads module (no ratings and wrong download stats) which need to be addressed by the code developer, IPS.

      Overall the website is working OK and we'll wrap up the configuration this weekend.

      We are back online again !!!

      although we look almost the same - we are running a completely new website code, a lot of stuff is still not available (links, images, post formatting) as our server has still to complete many background tasks.

      and the website is running slower than usual ...

      Excellent news :

       

      The Albatros module will be released as an open beta in September 2015 along with DCS World 1.5.0. This version will use the new rendering engine, but only include the Black Sea map.

      The Fighter Collection with Eagle Dynamics are happy to announce that DCS: L-39 is available for pre-purchase from the DCS E-Shop. The pre-purchase provides both a 20% discount off the retail price and access to the Open Beta coming in September 2015.

       

      Store at DCS E-Shop

       

      DCS: L-39 will sell for $49.99 at September 2015. Pre-purchase now for $39.99 and save 20%!

      In addition to the 20% purchase discount, pre-purchasers will receive a 20% full-price value in bonus points for future purchases!

       

      The L-39 Albatros is a low-wing, high-performance jet aircraft that doubles as a trainer and light attack aircraft. The Albatros was developed in Czechoslovakia in the 1960s to replace older L-29 jet trainers. Powered by an Ivchenko AI-25TL turbofan engine, the L-39 has a top speed of Mach 0.80, a service ceiling of 11,000 m (36,100 feet), and can pull up to 8 G. Although primarily used as a trainer and light attack aircraft, the L-39 has also become popular with several aerial acrobatics demonstration teams.

       

      Being a trainer aircraft, the L-39C has a tandem cockpit with the student in front and the instructor in the back. The instructor has several controls to mimic system failures to test the student. The L-39C also has two underwing pylons for bombs, rockets and close range air-to- air missiles. For decades, the L-39 was used by nations around the world to train pilots that later went on to fly aircraft like the MiG-29 and Su-27.

       

      Key Features of the DCS: L-39 Albatros:

      • Professional Flight Model that accurately mimics the performance and flight characteristics of this legendary trainer
      • Highly detailed, six-degrees-of-freedom (6 DOF) cockpit
      • Interact with cockpit controls with your mouse
      • Fully modelled weapon system
      • Accurate L-39C model with correct country markings
      • Detailed modelling of the L-39 instruments, weapons, engine, radios, fuel, electrical and hydraulic systems
      • Fly from either the front seat or back seat
      • Planned cooperative multiplayer in the same aircraft (not available at release)

      The Mustang racing season comes to an end with the most difficult course of the season. To complicate matters, they had to deal with 20 mph winds. Still, there was a champion to be crowned so racing went on.  
       
      Race day was not that pretty but qualifying provided a clue to who had the course figured out. Mick led the pack with a blistering qualifying time of 2:11.57 and ended up working his way to the end of the bracket, earning his first win of the season. This won him the Bf-109 provided by Hitman, in association with LockOnFiles, but more importantly, locked him into the number 1 position for the championship! 
       
      Congrats Mick, flying Strega,  on winning the 2015 Mustang Racing Series earning you  a Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS provided by VEAO Simulations!
       
      2nd place in the series goes to Frippe, flying Ferrari, earning him a TrackIR5 Pro also provided by VEAO Simulations.
       
       
      3rd place for the series - Phantom, flying Joedebelle, wins a key for the UH-1h Huey provided by an anonymous donor.

      Hi, Tom, folks,

       

      A new mission called Pointe & Shoot is available at Wrecking Crew Projects.

       

      This mission is a fun Combined Arms battle with Red armor attacking Blue Min-Vody Airbase from five directions.  The Red armor starts are randomized so every mission should flow a little differently.  Red has some light air defense including OSAs; Blue has all the aircraft and armor and Stryker ATGMs as JTACs.  

      This mission starts at 2000 and as always the lighting is very nice at that time of evening -- the mission should go well past sunset

       

      Pointe & Shoot

      Blue Air COOP: A-10C, Hawk, C-101EB, Ka-50, Mi-8MTV2, UH-1H; Combined Arms
      F10 All, Start 2000 04 AUG
      ---

       

      Summary
       

      Blue JTACs must spot Red convoys attacking Min-Vody Airbase. Min-Vody has little Blue defense so if Red can penetrate the perimeter they will capture the airbase.

       

      Blue intelligence agents will notify our forces when Red vehicles cross highway checkpoints.
       

      Sunset at 20:14 
       

      ---

       

      All missions on Wrecking Crew Projects are available for free download, modification and public hosting.  Enjoy!
