Agree that little details like clothes or bicycles can indeed come later, but nobody said there are no other things to do while they add these. While part of the team might be fixing serious issues, other part can use that time to make the map look more pretty. Texture artists won't help you much with scripting ATC or defining runway directions or whatever, so why not to give
him / her something to do in the meantime?

Besides, ED surely wants to make good first impression, and with all those details, they sure as hell will! I mean, clothes lines in a flight sim? As a small kid, playing LHX, I always dreamed of a flight sim where I would be able to fly realistically modelled helicopters and planes in a lifelike environment, with things like trees, and garden toolsheds, and power lines that I could actually crash into... A dream I knew will never come true. Some 20 years later and guess what?

P.S. And my greatest dream was to fly a Mi-24 over that landscape, simulated with useless details like tyres deforming while parked, rotor blades drooping when not moving, or doors I can actually open. In other words, all the things current DCS modules normally do! And see which helicopter is currently developed by Belsimtek!

My personal life hasn't been exactly what I would like it to be during the last few years, but looking back at my childhood dreams and seeing them come true is somehow... satisfying. One of the many small things that make life seem more pleasurable. Thank you ED for that!
i know mate, and totally agree, and im not that naive to think that all they do is really hanging up laundry on the ropes its just, its looking really really good...so im hoping for a release as soon as possible, or at least by end of march, speaking Q1

Like everyone else has said, I have no words to describe it. It looks superb. I was expecting a less detailed coast in south England. Congratulations to the map developing team. Now release it!! lol

Yeah would love to see that too, it's where my father was stationed during WW2. Now it has a very nice little museum, but last time I visited it the runways etc. were all gone.

Today's news update mentioned Normandy on track to come out soon.
I am so looking forward to soon!
With all my DCS installs I may have to invest in a larger SSD here soon as well.

Realize that the Southern England airfields are not accurate, that is part of the "low detail" comments about it. They are just airfields to launch missions from, they happened to be in the location of those RAF bases.

The detail certainly seems to be adequate for a low detail section

Whenever it actually hits the shelves for us to purchase it will be well worth it! Looking at those screen shots makes my jaw hit the floor! Much better than I was expecting (great job guys!!!) and even though I would like it in my hands yesterday I will patiently (as much as this old fart can muster...) wait for it to get in my grubby little hands.

I just don't hope that ED in any way are swayed by the verbal and noisy whiners on offical channels. A lot of people are whining on not getting what they want. I hope ED realize that they are making a dream come true for so many with this. And once its out the door and up and running- it can only get better!
