Subscriptions have been used very successfully in the MMO world. And the insight that DCS is more like a service is spot on - quite similar to MMOs, we get all the fixes and features to the modules,...

But delivering completed modules probably involves higher costs because you need more internal testing.

Also the commercial advantages. Eg. when ED has the option to cash in at year 1, 2 or 3 -...

Multicrew can be pretty important in multiplayer - it's a key factor in the charm of the F-14 and L-39, and plays a small part even in the Gazelle. If ED manages to up their game in multicrew with...

It's actually positive news they have a prerequisite item and sounds like Mi-24 will be bumped up in priority once that's done. The module doesn't live in a vacuum but could be relying on some...

I don't know any pilot who's been active for a while and has only 1-2 modules :smilewink:

90% of the time it's just alt-tab to whatever Chuck's Guide is relevant that day.

Tablet, 2nd monitor, or kneeboard occasionally.

It's good to take it slow, gather information and make a plan with priorities.



Obviously getting a system that can run the game is the most important. I get very good results with a well built...
