***Update from LeatherNeck***..............

 

Hey Guys,


Some small adjustments and one critical fix were included in today's DCS update.
These are just changes that were either made just after the release build was frozen, or a few hours after the MiG-21 went live. Thus, it does not contain the lions' share of bugfixing or performance improvements that have been made since release.

We will keep you posted as best we can as to when we can deploy that patch.
Big thanks to you all for your patience and support! We're working hard that you all get the smoothest experience possible ASAP.

Changelog below:

DCS MiG-21bis Rev. 1350 (September 19th)

-- Fixed Force Feedback joystick functionality and constant buzzing.
-- Reversed and corrected HSI pointer logic (Circle end is now tail!) (MANUAL & TRAINING MISSIONS NOT CORRECTED TO REFLECT THIS YET)
-- Minor improvement in Cockpit framerate (3-10%)
-- Adjusted several missions, added several mission images.
-- Added “Destroyed Hulk” model and textures.
-- Corrected several protruding objects in external cockpit model.
-- Minor adjustments in FM (Note: High altitude performance and idle engine drag changes not in this rev.)

Didn't buy this one... too many already to fly :-) including my new B747-400, but am anxiously waiting for the Bf109K4 :-)


I will believe in MFS the day I can Uninstall it !

Leatherneck's Mig-21Bis, I can't stop flying it :P

At first I thought that the Mig-21 would be a bad dogfighter, but it actually is very good & very agile!

It's a rewarding & fun aircraft to fly, the systems are easy to learn if you're interested & the English cockpit is helpful. It does it's job as an interceptor superbly, but can also do ground attacks.

It forces you to fly like a real fighter pilot paying attention to the numbers ie. you will loose yours external wing ordinance in accordance to their weights & the G's you are pulling, if you forget to retract your landing light's above 700km/h, they will be shred off....small details like that makes this as in RL.

The attention to details & the level of simulation is just amazing!

Thank you Leatherneck Simulations for this amazing masterpiece :rolleyes:


Kind regards

DCS World is actually, IMO, the best flight simulation platform currently available. The products they're releasing like the great ww2 warbirds are taking all of my simmer time... progressively lost all interest in civil sims, although yesterday I bought ( for €4,99 ) FSX SE to use as an alternative scenery generator for PSX :)

 

I was afraid of getting the Mig21 because of the russian cockpit, but you refer an english one? Is that an option when you load your model in DCS ? A menu option? If it is, then Great Idea!

jcomm, the module comes with an English cockpit and the depth of this module is insane.

The default built in cockpit is the English cockpit, if you want the Russian cockpit there's a menu option to change that.

Also all the Russian & German cockpits in DCS have English cockpit mods, that are easily manged, I use English cockpit's for the Mi-8, Su-27/25, Ka-50 & Fw-190. 

/Edit: just saw PWJT8D beat me to the answer, anyway you've got 2 answers now :)/

Does the Mig-21 come with the English Cockpit version as part of the download package, or is it necessary to obtain a JSGME compatible user mod?

My install did not come with English option - but it is a really simple plane. Looks like lots of switches most you just turn on at startup on forget - compared to the A-10 it is very easy. A couple of flights and you will not think about it.

 

Edit: There is a "Custom Cockpit Livery" i believe that reads your language and may change it - Just never used it.

Here is the English Mod too: http://www.476vfightergroup.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=339

 

Edit 2: graphically it is the best DCS module - IMO

What I found out is that there is that there is a directory in there called Custom that has a descriptions Lua file in it that makes it point to the default Rus. cockpit textures even when "Custom Cockpit Livery" is enabled. You have to copy the textures and the description.lua in there from the Eng. lang textures directory, and then the "Custom Cockpit Livery" option works.
