DCS: A10C Warthog Interview

The DCS: A10C Warthog interview on Games On Net talks with Jim Mackonochie of The Fighter Collection, developers of this upcoming hardcore combat flight simulator. They discuss how this evolved from a simulator used by the U.S. military, how the game is accurate in every detail except for classified details, enemy and wingman AI, the mission editor, system requirements, tutorials, future content updates, and more. He concludes saying the game should be released via digital distribution by the end of this month, and a boxed edition should follow in two or three months.

DCS: Black Shark - Stand Alone Game
DCS: A-10 - Stand Alone Game

These two games can and will be compatible in multiplayer. So if you have one game you can join the servers of the other, however you do need to have both games to be able to use both aircraft.

LOMAC: Platinum - Standalone game, the DEVs have stated on numerous occasions that it wont be compatitble with either of these games in multiplayer.

IL-2 Cliffs of Dover - Standalone game, NOT compatible with ALL of the above.

They released that trailer a while back, but still worth watching again. It's been a long time since I picked up a serious flight sim but I just might with this one. I love the Warthog, and I'd hate to be on the recieving end of one of those things.

After watching a video of a dev starting up the A-10 in this game I'm pretty sure I'd just sit on the tarmac flailing about in the cockpit.

However it could be good training for when the zombie apocalypse happens and I find myself at an abandoned A-10 base in need of something to pacify hordes of zombies...

there are simple key combinations that do the startup for you, or you can skip directly to starting from the air. there are also a ton of custom settings for how deep you want the sim to be. it can be quite game-like if you turn all the settings down. there should also be a 'game-mode' where it's almost like a console game, at least there was for black shark. just like other good pc games it's all about the customisability of the experience, you should never be stuck doing anything you do not want to do, so if that's what is holding you back from getting the game- don't let it.

LockOn: Flaming Cliffs 2 Stand alone product <<I thought this required LOMAC?

Yeah, sorry, I thought you were just talking about DCS. Flaming Cliffs 2 needs LOMAC (but not Flaming Cliffs 1). It uses the DCS engine though; it's almost not LOMAC any more.

They're standalone products. With the newest expansion-to-the-expansion for LOMAC, you can play multiplayer with DCS: BS players, and as far as I know DCS: A-10 will work with both as well. LOMAC has a lower level of simulation detail than the DCS games, since it's less focused.

I have a question for you pilots out there.

I just purchased a new Saitek X52 stick/throttle and I want to know if I need to purchase LOMAC in order to play these games or are they all stand alone products?

Well for a "dead" genre, flight-sims are doing remarkably well

This is a day one purchase for me, along with (probably) Cliffs of Dover IF Oleg finally manages to create a story or campaign that actually does some justice to his sims, which shouldnt be too hard (considering the Battle of Britain is the subject matter). Il-2 (and all of its expansion) was terrible with regards to its dynamic campaigns.

DCS: Black Shark is phenomenal, btw....
