I find the intellect behind it selfish, I've found many posts lacked foresight or understanding.

WW2 was never part of DCS to begin with, despite the platform being free for the original 90's based weaponry and the continual development every week that's never announced in the weekly updates but you always find when you look through the encyclopdedia.

So to bring WW2 up to a standard (and a recent standard at that) it's a completely new factor for DCS that has nothing to do with it's original platform. To get there, (and I actually have been heavily involved in the modelling, texturing and LUA work for one unit) takes an inordinate amount of time that must be recouped.

I will proudly be hosting this DLC in multiplayer, with fantastic task based scripting, patrolling, AI slot balancing, flak and bomber escort. And the non complaining enthusiasts will be most welcome.
Yup.

I totally agree that the assets deserve to be paid for, as they represent significant development efforts. They're not just scenery but also contain controllable vehicles for combined arms.

Still, I find it a shame that these assets are separate from the map. My worry is, that this could lead to increasing incompatibility in multiplayer and more complexity in terms of prerequisites for campaigns etc.

I don't understand the fuss here.

People openly proclaimed that they did not want WW2 in DCS and that they would not be interested. In effect they split the community. This solution means they can buy the map and use it for whatever they want, but they don't have to do WW2. If they don't want it they don't buy it. If they don't want it then the chances are that they are not going to join a WW2 server anyway, so they don't need it.

ED has just given people what they originally asked for, and the people that want to fly WW2 can do so - they just have to buy the extra bits to enable it. Really think people need to move on from this.

Mean we talking about the future of DCS call this Asset Pack 1 not only rely on DCS WW2

MBot have done it's homework, for what I recall, he have been civilize and polite. By being a creator of content he may have spot a problem down the line that most of us, the end user, haven't or can't see yet. That doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
Yes, but Bofors is not Bofors. The WWII Bofors is the 40mm/L60. After WWII they got phased out for the 40mm/L70, which has practically nothing in common with the L60, other than both being 40mm and both being from AB Bofors.

I didn't single anybody out on their tone or aggressiveness. I addressed MBot about his, -you can't prove it won't splinter the community-statement. You can never prove a negative, but that is not evidence of a positive.

He and others claimed to know what the results will be. I asked for evidence of that.

No, this is not true. The WWII 40mm Bofors is the L60. Post WWII it's the L70. Those two have nothing to do with each other.

Now, if ED wanted to do a quick refresh of the L60 to add to DCS-World as the L70, that would certainly be welcome

So I can't wait for this but I did catch ED being a little sneaky. The release date was written as April yesterday on Facebook and is now back to May...

It makes me a little sad, it must have been a mistake yesterday but either way this whole thing will be great when it comes!
