And I myself would really like to visit Georgia for its said geography, mountains, valleys, the Black Sea etc, and that is only because I have flown there in DCS.
Thanks for letting me see your point of view Holton.
Interesting and very valid.

My grate gripe is that there is nowhere to fly "realistic conflicts" or even Fictitious or made up realistic scenarios OTHER than cold war gone Hot at Georgia. Even tho the planes are as real as it gets and the geography too.

My grate inconvenience is that being in the wrong place , kills my immersion.
let me rephrase that, only being able to combat in Georgia for over 12 years. So hopefully I wont be stuck at Iran for too long

No, definitely not.
I want to fly over earth and according to earth history. Why not contacting Orbx in Australia?
Maps like Afghanistan (1), Afghanistan (2) , Vietnam, Korea, New Guinea, Solomons, Marianas should depict our military heritage with that museal dream beasts we can fly now with DCS.
DCS should not become a second Arma 3.

Wait, fictional as in 100% geographically fake? Like took place on the planet... Eris 9, inhabited by the gorgonons? If that's the case I'd have to decline, seems like a strange concession in realism in a simulator.

I think location is definitely tied into the realism of scenarios. As much of a hotspot the Black Sea/Caucasus region is, it's not a likely area of the world for the U.S. and Western Europe to become militarily involved in and most analysts in the know would tell you the same thing.


For one, the U.S. doesn't have any sort of mutual defense commitment with any country in the region. Even if they did, an argument can be made it could actually decrease the likelihood of war because of the deterrent effect an American presence would have. That's certainly not a convincing argument for increasing military presence and ties in the area, but it does show a lot more goes into the making of a war than simply hostility.



U.S.-Russia scenarios are among the least realistic in the sense they've never happened and are unlikely to occur, which is precisely their appeal. But I think scenario designers have gotten far too carried away and are reinventing the wheel at this point. This is why having a more diverse array of maps is important - it'll allow for a broader range of scenarios as well. Then again, that assumes they don't resort to U.S.-Russia scenarios in places like Africa as well.
