One of the biggest issues with DCS is the lack of cartography.

And poorly implemented kneeboard functionality.

Releasing a base map image file for each terrain so users could customize it would be a major improvement.

In my opinion each theater of war should include the following maps and charts.

General overview showing everything in dcs.
Topo maps for each section
SEctional for each Theater
VFR/IFR air routes both low and high for each theater
Airport Diagram for each Published Airport
Sid,star,and other published approaches and departures

Each mission should have a map showing the intended route to and fro plus route to alternative arrival base.

Each mod should have a full user manual for the equipment in it, all checklists standard ops(ie preflight, startup, before takeoff , cruise, landing etc


0 plus all emergency checklists for that vehicle.

If its a non flying mod like combined arms and the gps mod a complete how to integrate the mod in to dcs world

I know allot of this being done in most mods but not everyone.

Something like this future software can do the job

Whew!.........I like DCS, but everything requires/demands a learning curve.

Thanks Goa for making me feel so old in this community.
The TC-1 was released and even sold printed by ED at a time when the Caucasus map wasn't extended further East to Tbilissi and was stopping at Nalchick. The original work was made by one of the forum member, but I am sorry I can't remember his nickname.
It is still taking a large part of one of my wall in my office.
I cannot find this file on the user files but here is a link from BSD Drive: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1fm...g5GTrJyMA6mGxI

I can try. I've been doing a whole bunch of topographic maps for Wikipedia (examples : 1 2 3 ). I only need to find a way to retrieve those vectors, yes. If one of you find them, give me a call and I'll try my best to make an equivalent of the TC-1 for 2.5 Caucasus.

Well Flappie, if you can pull a png picture with this quality (see link in my previous post)or better from the whole new caucasus 2.5, it would be totally awesome.
