View Full Version : DGEN engine to be redone! Looks promising..

There's a post at SimHQ indicating a new development that will be good for offline lovers.

Apparently Starshoy, ( the DGEN creator ) was found and he gave the source code for DGEN to someone in Russia who plans to upgrade it. Good news since it would make it possible to fly planes added in the Daidalos patches and probably a lot or all of mod aircraft as well.

There were always clumsy ways that you could fly TD planes and mod planes in DGEN campaigns but it's been only possible by time consuming editing or using mod programs like MissionProPal. But MissionProPal does not work in the latest UP 3.0 so it's been hit and miss or just a pain in the rump to fly non-standard aircraft in careers.


Seems Starshoy was missing in action for the last five years or so and consequently, the DGEN engine has been more and more limited.

It certainly was a very real possibility.

I had wondered about that possibility on more than one occasion considering he was partners with luthier in RRG. I am definitely glad to hear he is still around. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Great news! Looks like Il-2 is still king of WWII flightsims.

Hi crucislancer. Good to see you again it has been awhile.

I am looking forward to this and hoping that Asura is able to get this done in a short period of time. The Pacific Fighters DGen has always needed help since its randomization feature doesn't seem to work that well, if at all.

Good to see you, too! I agree, Dgen does need some help in that regard, not to mention making the full plane & map set available. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

If the translations of Asura's posts are correct it seems he is going to make the map lists and airplane lists user editable. No longer will you have to worry about a plane or map not being available, just add it yourself and DGen should accept it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
