Changelog preliminar de DCS: World 1.5 ... ostcount=1
Dear all,

What follows is a preliminary changelog of DCS World 1.5. Because 1.5 is being built from a new branch of our code, we cannot account for changes made in earlier branches. As such, we had to create much of this changelog based on memory and older bug tracking reports.

Because of this and that we will probably be adding or modifying items, this changelog is very preliminary and subject to change during the Open Beta period. Also please note that we are still awaiting changelog items for most of the BST modules.

As items are added or modified, they will be highlighted in red.

As for the status of releasing the 1.5 Open Beta, we have good news: we created the 1.5 branch (release version) today. Just as soon as we complete smoke testing, we will release it.

The Eagle Dynamics Team

DCS World 1.5.0 Changelog

New unified executable. Separate executables are no longer used for the front end and simulation.
New graphics engine with the following features: DirectX 11 Support, optimized for GPU rather than CPU, improved lighting and shadowing, and improved graphical effects like contrails, flares and missile trail smoke, improved water
Improved VR support with Direct Display mode and VR front end GUI, but still very much work-in-progress until hardware reaches consumer release versions
Corrected track synchronization errors

Note: Once DCS World 1.5 is out of Open Beta, we will update the DCS World User Manual to reflect all of the following changes

Main Menu
Moved Options to icon at top of Main Menu.
Moved Module Manager to icon at top of Main Menu

Adding aircraft to a group set to spawn on ramp now places the new aircraft at the closest available spot to the lead aircraft.
Changed Triggered messages to now "stack" below currently displayed messages no longer over-writing a message that is currently being displayed.
Added "Clearview" variable to triggered messages to use the old method of displaying messages.
Added MANPAD units can now be transported via embarking actions like other infantry. (Side note currently you can't add them to a group with an existing embarking task, you have to create the group as you want it THEN create the embarking task if it contains a MANPAD)

Nuevos añadidos a al changelog de la 1.5 ... ost2487386
DCS World 1.5.0 Changelog


- Rift support with Direct Display mode and VR front end GUI, but still very much work-in-progress until hardware reaches consumer release versions


-New Options for setting rudder and aileron trim tabs in options menu


- Several cockpit textures issues fixed
- Parking brake implemented
- Startup training mission with English voice overs included

a couple of notes about 1.5:

- We won't build 32-bit binaries anymore. The users of 32-bit systems will stop getting the updates. Steam users will have to switch to a special 'beta' to keep using 32-bit DCS (locked at 1.2.16).
- Netcode improvements will come later
- ServMan support is currently broken but will be restored. This will require some minor work on ServMan part. ServMan maintainters are welcome to PM me.
- The infamous network 'integrity check' was removed and will be replaced with a different tech.

While release build creation and final testing are underway, here are a few images of the new MiG-29 cockpit.

All electrical bus consumers now have a minimum voltage at which the consumer continues function

Available load factor was reduced for some altitude bands, this has made closer to official documents
Fixed logic of the ARC-5 NDB switches
