We are now moving on to add some additional airfields and landmarks in the UAE.

Thanks,

whoa that's a lot



i didn't realize you guys were going to expand it that far north.


you don't think we could get say, diego garcia down there?


or maybe a few hundred miles of ocean would suffice..


also are we going to get the more southeasterly airbases on the coast?


i'm going to put together a campaign or six and so the more i have to work with the better. in addition, we still need tactical ballistic missiles and TEL-launched anti-ship missiles if you guys have some spare time sometime

Bravo Zulu!

I'm more surprised ED didn't expand the map towards Katar yet tbh.

Default Persepolis

Is Persepolis, near Shiraz, represented in the map? That would be good !

Sadly, it's not represented. Also Naghshe Rostam is not.
It's the same you would make a Egypt map with Cairo but without modelling the Pyramids and the Sphinx... or Dubai without the Burj Khalifa, where the historical meaning of Persepolis is greater by far!


Also the valleys are much more green (ok - might depend on the season). And the lake near Shiraz has a color that varies between orange and pink, because of it's high salt content.

Correct, not possible to make such a massive map in the current engine. As it is, we are pushing the boundaries. The the updated map will be about the same size as the Caucasus map.

We had a flight tonight where we flew the areas around Kerman and Shriaz.

Very impressive. There are a few idiosyncracies to address but it looks and performs fantastically.

Notably the rugged mountains. Really well done.

And we've got so much more to knock down too.

One thing I wish they would model is the nuclear facility at Bushehr. There's also a helicopter operations base there IRL IIRC.

Silver Dragon, how long ago was that post made? can you link the poast? DCS can already use more than 12 GB RAM, and things can be unloaded from RAM anytime and be loaded from SSD into RAM again. So if player is flying in Qatar for example, Iran airbases and geography and all that doesn't even have to be in RAM, at least not detailed, only rough mountain shapes...
