These things means that the person responsible is actually care about what he or she doing - and not just mechanically crossing out things from the to-do list. Artists are not robots.

The only artistic thing i recognize in DCS is the graphics, easter egg are bullshit, if they really cared about what they do they wouldn't waste a second doing something completely useless. 60-70 bucks spent and things are still years in EA.

*whispers* You're not a real pilot and the Air Force would never let you fly a F-16 based on your video game credentials.

Video game = Electronic entertainment
Reality = Not the above

So... if YOU can't make that distinction, it's your problem. You're like one of those guys that goes to a paintball event dressed in ''real gear'' and criticising how somebody hangs their ammo packs because it isn't ''authentic *wheeeeeze*''. Your anal retentive obsession with one word in the title of a video game doesn't change the fact it's a video game and you are taking this video game waaay too serious.

Coding is also art, can you imagine? And a lot of creativity is involved into complex programming tasks.

If you have ever worked on a large, user-oriented software product, you would have known that easter eggs aren't that time-consuming at all. Quite the contrary: they can help you to unwind a little. "Happy worker is a productive worker."

Thankfully, most users like these "human touches" (consciously or subconsciously), be it a funny icon, a little joke in a description, or an easter egg. Why do you think they drew belles on the bombers? Or how do you explain the whole door art phenomenon? Don't they have a better things to do in their army? Like, I dunno, bomb someone or do push-ups?

P.S. Things that are years in EA have nothing to do with any particular programmer or graphics designer (also, bad artist neither care, or have time for jokes).
It might as well be a poor management, crappy prioritization and whatnot. You don't see a lot of easter eggs coming from the management, huh?

I try to explain myself better.
GAME arcade= acecombat
GAME sim= DCS


Are you happy now? sim remain different from games and are serious stuff. The fun is in the passion first and then in playing the sim with lightness, as many of us do(unfortunately much in the online) but not in stupid things like easter eggs.


If developers have fun with easter eggs, okay, but when they put a module up for sale they have to clean it of such things. Of course not all easter eggs are the same, the RIO's sympathy is human so it's ok, but when they go further as with the vigen where even in the cockpit you find easter eggs, that's bad, sad, boring, not fun and i dont want to see it.

I can't wait for someone that after pressing the autopilot four times get distracted and crash, you'll see what complaint they will get. These things are criminal in real life

I must admit, that Tesla would drive me nuts - especially the cowbells coming on and you can't stop it for 5 mins. Who needs or even wants all that useless distracting crapola in a car? Too many people are too easily distracted in cars already so it's bound to cause some accidents. Just watch a few episodes of "Caught on Dashcam" to see what kind of idiots are on the roads. Scary.

Easter eggs in games or sims though... no harm at all and can be amusing. No need to get worked up about them if you personally don't like them. Just ignore them.

Maybe they are sure that it is not possible to make accidental maneuvers with the tesla, for me it remains nonsense and i honestly do not trust this type of cars.
For the eg.. if you put them even into the cockpit...
