Ihr liebt Flugsimulation.
Wir berichten darüber.

Der Digital Combat Simulator (DCS) von Eagle Dynamics erreicht die nächste Stufe: Version 2.9 wurde veröffentlicht und verspricht viele neue Features. So wurde nicht nur ein komplexes Voice- und Kommunikationssystem integriert, auch die Grafikengine erhält neue Features (AMD&Nvidia). Und die Mirage erhält eine neue Variante.

Es sind jetzt schon 15 Jahre, die DCS auf dem Buckel hat und die Arbeit ruht bei dem internationalen Team von Entwicklern um Nick Grey einfach nicht. Wie immer ist beim DCS die Open Beta die Version mit regelmäßigen Updates. Jetzt ist Version 1.9 erschienen und wer sich das Changelog ausdrucken will, schützt sicher nicht den Regenwald. Denn lang ist Liste der Features:

Zum einen ist da das neue Voice-Feature. Mulitplayer-Nutzer werden es kennen: Auf Servern wird meist professionell gefunkt, so wie man es im zivilen Bereich auf VATSIM und Co. kennt. Die Kommunikation und Anbindung an die Cockpits der DCS-Module hat bisher das Tool SimpleRadio (SRS) übernommen. Jetzt hat der DCS Voice Chat am Start, das kein simples Push-to-Talk ist, sondern vielfältige Features integriert. Kein Wunder hat DCS-Influencer Matt “Wags” Wagner auf seinem Kanal ein 10-minütiges Tutorial zur Nutzung der neuen Funktion veröffentlicht:

Auch bei der Grafik hat sich im neuen Update einiges getan – und zwar für beide Lager. Nvidia-Nutzer können sich jetzt über die Unterstützung für Nvidia DLSS freuen. “Durch Upscaling kann Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) die Spielleistung drastisch verbessern, wenn der Grafikprozessor (GPU) eingeschränkt ist”, schreibt Eagle Dynamics im Changelog. “Bitte beachtet, dass DLSS wenig bis gar keinen Einfluss auf die Leistung hat, wenn eure CPU eingeschränkt ist. Besitzer von Nvidia-Grafikkarten der 40er-Serie profitieren am meisten davon. Wenn ihr DLSS als Upscaling-Option ausgewählt habt, könnt ihr die Qualität gegenüber der Leistung mit den Voreinstellungen Qualität, Balance, Leistung und Ultraleistung weiter verfeinern.” 

Aber auch DCS-Fans mit AMD-Karten kommen auf ihre Kosten: “Unterstützung für AMD FSR 2 wurde hinzugefügt, FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) verwendet ebenfalls einen Upscaling-Algorithmus zur Verbesserung der Leistung”, berichtet ED. “Wie bei DLSS wird es wenig bis gar keine Auswirkungen haben, wenn eure CPU-begrenzt ist.”

Und wenn wir schon bei Grafik sind: Jetzt gibt es Screen Space Shadows (SSS) im DCS. Dadurch werden die Schattendetails von Gras, Büschen und Baumschatten verbessert. Am deutlichsten wird dies bei bewegten Gras- und Baumschatten bei großen Sichtdistanzen. Natürlich sind alle Features noch Work in Progress. Die komplette Liste der neuen Features findet ihr unten.

Ach ja, und für die Mirage F1 gibt es mit der BE jetzt auch eine neue Variante. Hier das Video dazu:

Changelog:

DCS 2.9.0.46801 Open Beta

Neue Kampagnen:

  • DCS: F-16C “First in Weasels Over Syria” von Ground Pounder Sims
  • DCS: MAD Black Shark von Stone Sky

Neue Flugzeugvariante:

DCS World

  • NEU: Unterstützung für Nvidia DLSS wurde hinzugefügt. Durch Upscaling kann Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) die Spielleistung drastisch verbessern, wenn der Grafikprozessor (GPU) eingeschränkt ist. Bitte beachtet, dass DLSS wenig bis gar keinen Einfluss auf die Leistung hat, wenn eure CPU eingeschränkt ist. Besitzer von Nvidia-Grafikkarten der 40er-Serie profitieren am meisten davon. Wenn ihr DLSS als Upscaling-Option ausgewählt habt, könnt ihr die Qualität gegenüber der Leistung mit den Voreinstellungen Qualität, Balance, Leistung und Ultraleistung weiter verfeinern. W.I.P.
  • NEU: Unterstützung für AMD FSR 2 wurde hinzugefügt, FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) verwendet ebenfalls einen Upscaling-Algorithmus zur Verbesserung der Leistung. Wie bei DLSS wird es wenig bis gar keine Auswirkungen haben, wenn eure CPU-begrenzt ist. W.I.P..
  • NEU: Kantenglättung (Anti-Aliasing). Wenn Upscaling ausgeschaltet ist, stehen drei Modi für Kantenglättung zur Verfügung.
    • Multi-Sampling Anti-Aliasing (MSAA)
    • Temporal Anti-Aliasing (TAA)
    • Deep Learning Anti-Aliasing (DLAA)
  • NEU: Grafikoption für Screen Space Shadows (SSS) hinzugefügt. Dadurch werden die Schattendetails von Gras, Büschen und Baumschatten verbessert. Am deutlichsten wird dies bei bewegten Gras- und Baumschatten bei großen Sichtdistanzen. W.I.P..
  • NEU: Color Grading. Select between nine image color gradients that allow you to adjust the tint of the image to provide the desired effect. This can be most useful for video creators.
  • NEW: LOD Switch Factor. The Level of Detail (LOD) slider allows you to adjust the distance at which a unit transitions to lower level of detail models. 1 is the default value, but by setting a lower value, game performance can be increased.
  • NEW: Sharpening. The slider adjusts the image sharpness between 0.00 (default) and 1.00. Sharpening can help make it look crisp and clear by enhancing the edges of objects in the image. However, adding too much sharpness can actually make an image look worse, or it can lead to a loss in image detail. When using DLSS, we suggest a setting of 0.5 and 0.8-1.0 for FSR.
  • NEW: Cinematic Camera View – Right Control + F2. In combination with the mouse, the WASD keys can be used to move the camera forward, back, and laterally, and the Q and E keys can move the camera up and down. This allows the camera to be positioned in reference to the unit’s coordinate system, allowing much greater camera control for cinematic scenes.
  • NEW: 3D Models. Newly created models for the B-1B, B-52H, S-3B (S-3B Tanker to follow shortly), “Centurion” C-RAM, and SA-10 (S-300PS).
  • NEW: Ability to create, save, delete and rename custom weapons loadouts using in game rearm/refuel menu.

Flight model:

  • Slightly increased high supersonic drag to better reflect acceleration data.

Autostart/Autostop:

  • Several 3D model and texture updates.
  • Fixed brake chute being self-deployed disregarding the handle position, after the aircraft repair is complete.

DCS: C-101 Aviojet by AvioDev

  • Radio stations status (yellow indicator) and Selected radio for transmission (the radio background color) in Voice Chat will be displayed correctly now, when the aircraft was entered hot, while the server simulation has not started yet (server still paused).

Pünktlich zu Cross-the-Pond-Event, das am kommenden Wochenende auf VATSIM stattfindet, hat Horizon den 787-9 Mod verbessert und mit CDPLC ausgestattet. Damit könnte ihr über Hoppie ACARS mit den Lotsen kommunizieren und Freigaben einholen.
Die virtuelle Umsetzung der Pilatus PC-12 durch die Simworks Studios letztes Jahr kam durchaus gut in der Simmer Community. Kontrovers diskutiert wurde jedoch seitdem das Flugverhalten der Maschine bei Start und Landung. Nach einigen Verschiebungen wurde nun ein Update für den Flieger veröffentlicht, welches hier Besserung schaffen soll.
