Wags Interview- Some points of interest

Post by (D/229) Gizzy on Wed 26 Jul 2017 - 3:00

Wags Interview.... it bit long but a few points of interest....

@Genbrien: Syran over at Mudspike shared the following bullet points, based on his "take aways":


  • it takes about 4 to 6 years to create something on the level of the F/A-18 or the A-10C.
  • about 12 to 18 months to create a warbird.
  • It is hoped to create maps that support every conflict DCS represents.
  • There are hopes for DCS level tanks someday, but not soon.
  • An AH-64 is more likely a case of 'when' rather than a case of 'if'. For now both ED and BST have other priorities though.
  • collidable trees are coming to the updated Caucasus .
  • More multicrew aircraft are coming "it's in the future, it's coming" don't know if this just refers to the F-14 and BO-105, F-4E and Mi-24 or also other stuff.
  • Multicrew is coming to UH-1H and Mi-8MTV2.
  • There are considerations to make the TF-51 multicrew.
  • The updated damage models might one day seep through to ground vehicles.
  • Wags could not answer anything else than "things will change" when asked about multithreading.
  • overwing/LEX vapor for the hornet is on the to-do list.
  • Wags mentions the SLAM-ER, Laser version of the HARM (??? maybe he ment the laser version of the mav?)
  • The sounds for the F/A-18 are coming directly from Boeing.
  • SPJ's (Self protection Jammers) might be coming to all modern aircraft (that have them) rather than just the barrage jammers they have right now.
  • Wags admits the complication, being Russian based, developing full fidelity Russian aircraft.
  • New explosions and new clouds are in the works.
  • Dynamic campaign is more of a "when" rather than an "if". But wags admits not having the staff to do it right now to do it on a level that would meet their expectations.

Thanks Giz,

Man I am impatient!!!
I'll be in an 'Ol Folks Home, attached to a colostomy bag, sipping porridge through a straw by the time Huey multi crew comes out!!

Talk about dangling the carrot though.
