Vor mehr als einem Jahr angekündigt und jetzt verfügbar: Eagle Dynamics haben den Digital Combat Simulator um eine kostenlose Basiskarte erweitert. Nach der Kaukasus-Map können DCS-Fans jetzt die Inselgruppe der Mariannen im Westpazifik erkunden – die Map ist jetzt in der Open Beta des DCS verfügbar. Und wie bei jedem Update, haben auch wieder diverse Add-Ons Verbesserungen erhalten.

Die Mariannen-Karte erstreckt sich im DCS über eine Fläche von 1500×1500 Kilometer und beinhaltet die Inseln Guam, Rota, Tinian, Saipan und kleinere Inseln. In Guam befindet sich außerdem die größte Airbase der US-Streitkräfte im Pacific (Anders Air Force Base), die auch im DCS detailliert nachgebildet ist.

Auch wenn die Kaukasus-Karte im DCS von Anfang an dabei ist, muss die Mariannen-Map als kostenloser DLC heruntergeladen werden. Eagle Dynamics plant außerdem, die Karte nördlich der Inselkette Farallon de Medinilla noch zu erweitern; auch Richtung Osten und Westen soll mehr freier Ozean hinzukommen. 

Bei der Performance nennen die DCS-Schöpfer die Syrien-Karte als Referenz, da vor allem neue Technologien auf der neuen Karte zum Einsatz kommen und daher ältere Hardware evtl. auf Performance-Probleme stoßen könnte. Eine Hardware-Empfehlung bzw. Mindesstandards findet ihr hier im Ankündigungspost.

Ein visuelles Sneak-Peak ist im Release-Trailer der neuen Karte ebenfalls zu finden: Der sich in der Entwicklung befindende AH-64 “Apache” ist kurz in der Nahaufnahme zu sehen. 

Wie immer werden die Updates zum neuesten Open-Beta-Release (2.7.3.8494) automatisch über den Updater installiert. Die Mariannen-Karte muss als DLC freigeschaltet werden. 

Hier das Change-Log für die das neueste Update, das auch die Mariannen-Karte ermöglicht:

Der Community-Mod der JAS-39 „Gripen“ hat ein Update auf 1.5 erfahren. Der Rund 200 Punkte umfassende Changelog bringt viele neue Waffen, verbesserte Darstellungen und realistischere Load-Outs in den Digital Combat Simulator. Nach wie vor fehlt für die Air-to-Air Variante ein clickbares Cockpit. Daran arbeiten die Entwickler jedoch bereits und wollen dies dann für die Version 2.0 zur Verfügung stellen.
Nach der Ankündigung von TrueGrit, dass ein Eurofighter für den Digital Combat Simulator entwickelt wird, entstand ein Erdbeben in der Community. Lange Zeit war es sehr ruhig rund um das Team von Gero Finke, doch heute meldeten sie sich mit einem fulminanten Lebenszeichen zurück.
Kurz nach dem Early-Access-Release des Hind ruht die Arbeit bei Eagle Dynamics und Partnern wie gewohnt nicht. So wurde jetzt nicht nur ein Update für die Normandy-Karte angekündigt, sondern auch weitere Previews der Mosquito und des Black Shark präsentiert. Und Matt Wagner zeigt in einem ausführlicheren Video nochmal Tricks zu den Funktionen des Luft-Luft-Radars.
