DC Designs Updates F-15 Eagle on MSFS

Dc Designs F15 C D E I Eagle Microsoft Flight Simulator 5 Ss L 210120173255

An extensive update for the DC Designs F-15 Eagle has been released via Just Flight. The new update comes with a range of fixes and additions. The changelog is quite extensive with a huge number of changes both for the fixes and the new additions to the plane since the original release.

Some of the more prominent fixes include the flicking lights issue, various issues with the HUD being hard to read and also ensuring that the Tailhook handle now works. Furthermore, rain and snow will no longer enter the cockpit and fuel flow indicators are now accurate. As for additions, a new custom sound set from SimAcoustics has been added and is WWise compliant. New icing effects have also been added to the aircraft along with a functional anti-ice switch. Finally, an interactive checklist has been added as part of the in-sim menu to help you get to grips with the plane.

As a reminder, the aircraft features a custom-coded and user-controlled payload manager, ADI, authentic MFDs with accurate visual layouts and also highly detailed instruments designed to emulate the appearance of the real aircraft. An operational manual is included to support those who buy the product.

You can buy the DC Designs F-15 Eagle for Microsoft Flight Simulator from Just Flight’s website now for £26.99.
