This is a very high-priority item for us with good progress. However, this is a highly complex undertaking and it will take time, but certainly not "5 years".

Once we have interesting and significant news to pass along on this task, we certainly will.

Thanks
Thanks for the info Wags.... I can't wait for this. It will make DCS a complete experience!! I'm so excited.... I just can't hide it.... I better stop before I go in to crap song territory!

This is for me the most important item missing in DCS. I would pay for it as a module if you decide that is what it takes it to allocate the needed resources for a succesful development.

Ditto, this is what will take DCS to the next level for me. I couldn't care less about more modules at this point

Give them a few years to bake it well.

While it's exciting to hear that the DC is indeed at such a high priority as I thought it would be, I'd kind of hope them to complete the tactical (Combined Arms) environment before they delve deep into the operational.

As Wags implies, the decision is often somewhat out of the hands of ED many times - more about securing contracts, finding talent, etc.

No... not a paid for module... this should be critical part of the base program.

Having it for free is somehow ... "dangerous"!
I prefer to pay and have full support.

This is a critical feature that can change the way we play DCS forever.

I wouldn't mind paying for it either. I pay for short scripted campaigns and consider those money well spent. Getting a cool DC would easily be worth as much as a whole aircraft.

I would not want to infere with ED business decissions, is totally up to them. Having said that, I do care for his business profitability as I want them to stay strong forever. I cant imagine loosing them as a company given there is no more competition on this niche market.

On top of that, I do expect a very well structure, flexible and robust DC that works both in SP and MP, and that takes time and resources, hard to do with just a single engineer. If Maps, scripted campaigns and modules are monetized cant see a single reason to have this for free. The ROI you will have in fun and hours of gameplay is hardly comparable with any module until now (You pay 60 dollars and now and all of sudden you have infinite hours of gameplay for all your modules).

Again, I will celebrate any decission they make, they have proven many times to have a clear roadmap.

Agreed. Everyone wants stuff for free, but forgets what a niche market this is. I will gladly pay for it if it ensures ED's future and my future DCS happiness.

I just hope the DC is not just for SP but for MP as well.
