Default Forum Flight Manuals Section?

Would ED consider having a section in the forums with the most updated Quick Start and Flight Manuals for all the planes?

I believe this would be good advertisment for DCS World.

There is already a section of the ED website that has those documents, though it is probably not up to date.

https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...documentation/

EDIT: As for advertising. Links inside an ED site don't serve as much of an advertisement since the people that see them probably already know exactly what is available. Steam is already a better advertisement than that would ever be.

The comment about advertisement is more about the value of letting people see the features of the modules in detail. It might entice people by giving them a better idea what the level of detail is really like.

I know. A long time ago, SithSpawn said he would make an effort to get it straightened out but from what I can see, little has changed.

No matter where they are located, ED needs to either update them (the ones included are frequently not current), and include the missing ones, or just take the whole section down.
