DCS: MiG-23UB Mod (DISBANDED)

This is a mod that will be released under the title of CubanAce Simulations. The following work was mostly led by Sirius (me) in terms of modeling improvements/"re-topology," animations, texturing and coding into the Digital Combat Simulator (DCS) World simulator game. The pictures show the progress that the mod went through, including milestones and improvements. This mod is still under development as of 1 March, 2019. (NOTICE: This mod is now under full fidelity support of CubanAce Simulations, and is no longer being maintained under a collaboration)

Still in the early stages of work. This is showing the gear animation while in modelviewer2 (debugging software for DCS)

One of the core features of the mod was to introduce wing sweep that did not have to cheat or manipulate existing functions in DCS, being native with its own code.

Early tests of the mod in DCS, without any customized scripts for core features of the mod. This includes rudimentary working "multi-crew" in the form of cockpit camera views.

Process of coloring out control surfaces of the aircraft to help distinguish for showing core features early on, and further debugging of systems code.

Testing weapons in a dogfight scenario against Hawks. (Don't ask for the backstory on why.)
