Thumbs up From the Facebook: A-50

I'm impressed there's not a single mention about this image on the forums, no speculations and discussions about it. I myself only noticed this image yesterday. So let's fix this:



Link to the original facebook post: https://www.facebook.com/eagle.dynam...575341/?type=3

This is also the same image used on the last Community Update.

DCS World 2.5 Caucasus theater featuring an A-50.

Thoughts?

New grass. Still WIP, like the new clouds. I suspect they'll both make an appearance in 2.5, along with what looks like new lighting and model shaders. Very pretty indeed.

In the coming weeks, I hope to release some new screen shots and details. I think many of you will understand why 2.5 has been taking longer than expected. It will be worth it.

Looking forward to it!

2.5 in two weeks!

DCS memes aside

well, basically because 2.5 isn't just a graphical upgrade for Caucasus but almost a new game, with new features not even yet available for 2.0 and NTTR. and also because you guys are working on too many things at the same time.

what will "eat" every single DCS pilot is this "coming weeks", of what we are getting. an announcement? standalone alpha? update for 2.0?

on the speculation side of things, this pic for me means WAR: maybe a dynamic campaign, or just a whole new comm system for AWACS and ATC...

good times ahead!
