July Update!

We have had a very busy time since our last blog post.

What have we been doing?

1. We updated all the voice overs in the A-10C Advanced Aircraft Training Qualification Campaign (AAT) with professional recordings.  The missions were all retested and the package has been given to ED for their review and release.  We can't say exactly when it will be available in the ED store but we believe the voice overs take the campaign to the next level.  Many thanks to Grayson Frohberg for doing a great job!

2. We are doing the same thing for the A-10C Tactical Training Qualification Campaign and we hope to update the already released A-10C Basic Flight Training Qualification Campaign at some future point as well.  The professional voice overs really make a difference in our opinion.

3. You probably noticed in the DCS Newsletter today the following line:

"Extended Campaign for the F-5E by Maple Flags Missions Developer (not included in the module package)".  

We were contacted in May to do a campaign for the F-5E.  It has been in development ever since.  It is an NTTR based campaign and very much in keeping with the teaser video (see below). Release date is TBD and everything is subject to change.

4. Lastly we recently updated to the Oculus Rift and what an experience that has been.  If you have not had a chance to try it out, it really is a game changer.  The sense of immersion is remarkable and though the graphics resolution is not on par with 4K TVs you lose yourself in the immersion so quickly it's a very easy trade-off.

Lots of good stuff coming to DCS and we have lots of campaigns in development.  We look forward to the 2.5 release when the Alpha and Beta's combine into a single instance.

Happy flying!
