Default Caucasus Texture DLC by Starway - Donation page is online




Dear friends and followers,
thank you for your patience, but finally the website for the donation is online. Now it is up to you if this DLC ever will be released.

The release plan is as follows:

The texture pack is on hold until the amount of 2000$ is reached. Then the T3 package will we provided for the whole community for free. When the amount of donations will reach 3000 $, I will release the T4 package under the same conditions.
Please be aware that this is not only a mod, even it has lost its official status, contentwise it is still a DLC. I put more than a year of work into this, many rounds of corrections with Eagle Dynamics and and a lot of attention to detail. But the main feature is that I always followed my personal guideline: Passion for quality.

That is why I can’t just give it out for free. I hope you understand.



You can reach the website here:
https://starwayblog.wordpress.com/

The donation will be via PayPal. I hope that is allright with you.



Thanks again for all your support so far!

All the best,
Starway


----------------------------------
Update 1:

First goal is reached!
The first version of the DLC will go public tonight, at 9.00 pm CEST.
The download link will be provided on this thread and on the website: https://starwayblog.wordpress.com.

Thank you so much for your great support so far!

----------------------------------
Update 2:



Finally I am very proud to announce that the DLC for DCS versions 1.5.x is ready for download:

https://starwayblog.wordpress.com/

1.Step
Due to the fact that this DLC contains several lua-files (config files) which will overwrite the core files, there is no better way than installing it via JSGME. A very detailed guide how to install can be found in the forum:

http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=98607

So please follow these instructions first.

2.Step
Download the DLC via the button "Download Caucasus DLC 1.5.x" on the DLC website.

3.Step
Unzip content.

4.Step
Drag and drop the folder "Caucasus Map DLC by Starway" into your JGMSE -mods folder

5.Step
You should now see the folder "Caucasus Map DLC by Starway" listened under "Available mods". Klick on it and than press the first button with the arrow pointing to the right. The folder will then move to the right side. That's it. Enjoy your flight!


An alternative way would be to drag and drop the content of the zip into your main DCS folder and overwrite if asked. But than you have to repeat this procedure after every update, and your original files will be lost without a backup.





----------------------------------
Update 3:

I am very happy to announce that the whole campaign is a full success! This morning we've crossed the $3,000 mark! This means that I will continue working on this DLC right away to make it T4 ready! The release of this update will be provided for free.

I have to say that I am really proud that I am part of this great community. You all proved yourself in having an extraordinary team spirit. I also want to thank Wags and Kuky for supporting me with this project until the end. Furthermore, a big thank you to all users who helped me out by creating alternative download links and torrents.

You are awesome!

DLC Update 2
---------------------------------------

UPDATE 2.0 released!


Dear Simmers, I am happy to announce the release of the second update for this DLC. This time it is really huge. Almost every texture has been retouched. Specially the noise, fields and mountais are completely new based on the feedback I received.













This update contains the following features:

- new 8K noise textures for all seasons
- new 8K mountain textures for all seasons
- new fields
- winter textures for runways added
- adjusted trees
- new distance textures
- adjusted villages, roads, borders …

File is available here:

---------------------------------------
DLC Update 2.4
---------------------------------------


The new 2.4 version of this DLC is ready for release

The testing phase is over which means the file will be available for public.

In this update, the main focus is on the distant textures. More than 16.0000 texture files have been edited. The result is a much more volumetric looking terrain with more contrast. The snowy mountain tops have been exchanged so it fits better to the overall look and the high resolution mountain textures. All the remaining high res textures like fields, grass and village textures have been retouched, to make them blend perfectly into the distance.











Download sources:

Direct download

Torrent

Installation via JGSME. Unzip file, copy and paste the complete content into your JGMSE-mod folder and overwrite old files.

Thanks again for all the people who are helping this product to grow with a donation!
You can find the donation button on my website: https://starwayblog.wordpress.com/

Happy flying!
Starway

Hmm, what about people who don't use PayPal (like me)? Is there a way for us to donate as well?

Considering a donation.
Can someone explain the difference between the T3 and T4 versions of the mod?
Thanks.
