Default 2.5 is amazing but it miss some animations

Hi

I really enjoy 2.5 but some animations in 2.5 would be welcome:

Waterfalls
Cable car
Chair lift
Skier lift

I think that after Olympic winter games in 2014, we could find many of cable cars and chair lift near Soschi.

AFAIK the vintage of the map is unspecified, so just think of it as well before 2014, and the lifts aren't built yet

I'm seriously disappointed that the birds on the trees are not animated. It's a total immersion killer when flying my Sabre at 30,000 feet

On a more serious note: I certainly hope we won't get ski lifts nor cable cars. The Caucasus is a generic enough terrain so that it can be used as Korea, Vietnam, or anything else with a little imagination. Not with ski lifts, though.

h.
Because you think that all users are flying like you, in a Sabre at 30.000 ft ?

Some of us are flying on low altitude and speed with helicopters. My wishs seem to be reasonable, not like birds in the trees. In fact I want dogs too but with the animated fleas in their fur too.

Waterfalls are visible even from a plane cockpit and cable cars too.

But other people available in the ME in infantry animated items would be welcome, like civilians people ( stewardess, generics civilian people) and airports moving equipments, sailing or motor ships for rivers and lakes. all these stuff allowing to give more natural life to DCS.

DCS has so magnified the Caucasus that I'm surely not only the one having tourism as the main activity in DCS even if it's a military simulator. And even with a military simulator, you can do pacific missions.

I can even going more far in my imagination and why not ? As the forest and woods of Caucasus are dense, why not having a fantastic bestiary in the ME editor, to make missions like bigfoot or werewolves hunting with helicopters?
Please, don't laugh too loud, but don't forget that surely some of us are SF lovers.

This is also the present day Batumi coast, but I believe our map is based on the build of the area decades ago...

All ideas are nice but don't forget one thing. DCS and Caucasus map is a free to play product and on that note I think we are getting an excellent quality / price factor.
I find Nevada map better in terms of Nellis, Groom Lake and Las Vegas details. That's why it costs money.

Excuse me but I don't think that ED are sponsors. Even if the base of DCS is free with 2 planes, they havn't just made it for our pleasure. They have, as all people, family to feed and the basic DCS is just here to win money with paying modules. I don't blame them, it's quite normal. I have a point of angry with ED and they know which but it's not the subject on this post and I think that helicopters lovers could be more attracted by more effects and animations. I understand that F-15 or SU-27 inconditionnals pilots could not be interested. I pilot these planes too in DCS but not often for military fights.

An other point: The mission editor is very powerful and I take a great pleasure too by building elaborated missions for myself. But often, I feel quite frustrated to not have other objects to include in them. For exemple, I've done a mission with an elaborated heliport on the shore of the nicest place of DCS 2.5 for me: On the shore of the lake situated at 39 Kilometers ( 22 nm) of Kutaisi, heading 64°. I'm quite frustrated to not have the possibility to put animated sailing ships or fishing small boats on the water of this lake, bathing people and umbrellas near a camping full of tents and caravans near the lake. Some rescue medical missions with Huey or MI-8 could be very interesting. It's just an exemple but it illustrates very well what I mean.
