DCS World Steam Edition – Useful Tips & Tricks
Get a friend to fly with you. It makes a world of difference. If you are both new, you’ll have a lot of fun watching one another explode.
You can host multiplayer servers by port forwarding. It can be a tedious process, but it is an option.
Setting aircraft skill to “Client” in the editor can be used to choose different roles on mission start and is required to be able to choose a slot in multiplayer missions.
To get better screenshots, you can hide the menu bar in the third person and vehicle labels both in mission settings and with the default bindings 2x LCtrl+Y and LShift+F10, respectively.
You can also enhance screenshots with Time of Day, Season, and Weather settings in the editor and by using external view zoom commands.
Most of the F1-12 cameras have variants that you can find in the keybind lists.
Get familiar with everything out of the game in the main menu and submenus. There is a model viewer, instant action, many general settings to toy with, campaigns, missions, and more. There really is a LOT.
Friendly fire isn’t. You lose a lot of scores if you teamkill AI in campaigns and missions (all of it, actually).
Get Flaming Cliffs 3. Once you know one, you know them all.
There are joint task force red and blue coalitions that allow you to make any vehicle from any country, either Red or Blue. If you want to fly a Su-25 alongside a friendly A-10A, that’s an easy go-to.
In a single-player, you can slow down and speed up the time, but you may have to rebind any default NVIDIA overlay activation bindings.
If you get a high-fidelity model, make the first one the F-18. There are extensive tutorials for this aircraft on YouTube, and it is both very fun and very flexible. F-18 best module.
Don’t look at the infantry models. You will want to bleach your eye holes.
The fuselage is not supposed to be a weapon, but it is a hell of a last-ditch effort.
You can tell AI wingmen what to do in the radio menu.
You can bully AI into taking SAMs for you so you can find out where enemy air defenses are.
If you fly a few feet off the ground, you can sneak up on long-range radar missile sites.
Most guns are only really very effective on light armor.
You can rearm a plane by landing at a friendly airbase. Neutral airbases act like they’ve been abandoned for the apocalypse.
You can download mods and skins from the internet.
