Really great video, but I must say, several towns are wiped out, and the cites are thinned out noticeably.

Great videos and comparison. 2.5 looks very sharp and beautiful.

Really great vid. Also shows clearly how ground lighting in 2.5 is pretty much non-existent currently. Throughout entire vid but at 1:00-1:15 it is like they just deleted them in 2.5 compared to 1.5.


Really useful video. Thanks for it.

Great job on these videos. The terrain IS much better and the hills and snow are great but. Trees trees trees and no roads, tracks or pathways through the woods. And also a huge loss of small towns and over 50% loss of building mass in what is left of towns. We will see how this works for mission building but I think I will miss having the dirt roads and tracks to run vehicles through. Lighting definitely needs more work.

I think you are being a little overly critical. Perspective is not the same, but you can see for the most part where there is a town IRL, there is a town in DCS. Little less density, sure, but not too far off. Not bad for a "free" map that is a few years old (it's not really free if it's part of the campaigns you paid for with other modules but whatever).

Also view distance was on Ultra.

Nice comparison! I have to agree with you. I've made a video for myself to compare how Novorossiysk have changed. It looks like some parts of the city were removed, but there's also new part added further North. Some buildings in main part of town were moved, some other removed, but there are also some that were added.
