I don't think Hawaii would be a good idea, because that would be a one country map and the only country which has a reasonable carrier group sits on the the island.

How's that? The price of dcs maps and planes is insane compared to any other game, flight sim or not.

The only reason I bought the hornet was cause I could play the game on the free map to check out the game first.

That's one point of view... otoh you have a totally free game, with real world Caucasus map, highly detailed, 4 seasons. You're free to fly infinite hours in russian mud mover (highly advanced flight model + simplified systems, campaign, countless missions, training, manual) or full fidelity WW2 trainer. Both free to play single player or multiplayer, against/with countless AI units and/or other human. Plus powerful ME in your hands so you can create any war (or peaceful) theater you can imagine... forgot something? Oh, yeah, that PC rig you play on is priced way higher than any of those insanely expensive modules.

You're joking aren't you?
Go have a look at the cost of the add ons for either of the key civilian sims and they try to say that.

Perhaps I don't know what they are then.

Prepar3d is $200 USD
FSX is $35 AUD, which is $25 USD

Large title non flight sims that I actually know (I am actually not a gamer) ARMA, $15 on sale, GTA5 $20 on sale.

All my gamer friends didn't believe me when I said it was $105 for the hornet (Australian) and $80 for a map to play it on. I was hoping they'd get into it, but not going to happen.

I wonder how much the new MS FSX will be? I am guessing less than $80 a plane/map.

Don't get me wrong, I went with DCS cause I wanted the hornet and no-one else is doing it in a combat sim (to my knowledge), and I'll probably buy a map, once I am better at it and get a new computer, cause my 8 year old one doesn't cut it.

I still don't get how any of that relates to "one free map too many". By having a free map, it allows people to check it out.

Let's stay on topic guys, talking about the prices of other games isn't the topic, thanks.
