Default A simple question, simple answer.

I bought Normandy with the asset pack this is soon 1 year. My question is very simple. When will I be able to fully benefit from my investment?

If you mean, when can you install them, if you download and install 2.5.0 Open Beta you can install and use them there.

If you mean, when can you install them in the Release version, once 1.5.x Release updates to 2.5.0 Release you will be able to install and use them.

When that will be I don't know... *ahem* two more weeks? ...

Actually, from ED's January 2018 plan, 2.5 Release was supposed to already have been released by now, so your guess is as good as any.

I think OP would like to know when we can expect the rest of the advertised asset units and Normandy map changes to come, because no matter how one looks at it, the fact is after about a year, we're still pretty much where we were back then.

Thus, even though the WWII part of DCS technically cannot be called "vapourware", as meager snippets of WIP content are being shown every now and then in the Newsletter to make us WWII customers shut up, the whole thing gives impression of being treated like an unwanted child.

So, the simple answer to the simple question is - it's done when it's done, and nobody can estimate that, probably including ED.

Things take a long time with DCS. This is a "sad" fact about many aspects of DCS World.

I remember Wags saying the F-18 is imminent more than 2 years back.

Many other modules are also unfinished, still in beta for a long time or have unfixed bugs that have been around ever since the introductions of 2.0 open alpha.

While I really hope all of these things are fixed and completed sooner rather than later, I'd suggest not to get depressed about it. This is the nature of DCS and the sheer scope of DCS is now much more impressive than just a few years back.

There are two working campaigns out for the Normandy map, so it already provides a gameplay experience.

is not an investment... you just bought something... you know... like a TV... maybe not the best, maybe not perfect but for sure not one that brings you money.

Thi might be a language thing.. but the word "investment" is not only used to refer to assets that provide a financial return. People can "invest" in their own happiness, or they can "invest" in relationships. So yes, spending money on a hobby can comfortably be referred to in English as an "investment".

Remember WW2 (and Normandy) has a permanent evolution, the AI assets and other features has not a "finished" date, actually has only a little "branch" of WW2, and surely ED and Ugla Media get more content with them done.
