Are there any plans to change the Training menu GUI? I far preferred the old implementation, the new one is just to 'basic' if you know what I mean.

To BUILD One is Something.

I am just getting back into DCS after a long hiatus.

 

I have 1.5 installed (looking good by the way).

 

I just bought the NTTR map.

 

I was curious if there is anything I need to know before installing 2.0 alpha as a separate install from 1.5?

 

Do any of the settings/control profiles/etc conflict or work across both versions? Are dual installs of modules required for each version of dcs, or will my already installed modules work automatically in 2.0? (If not, will it require a re-download, or just a simple copy/paste?)

 

Thanks for your time.

Welcome back to DCS, Ramjet ;)

 

The modules should be downloaded from the module manager. The updater should import the valid content from your current 1.5 version to the 2.0 alpha. Just expect some download as there are several quick action missions available for the modules (they are Nevada-specific).

 

Copying the controls profiles from 1.5 to 2.0 should be safe enough but ED advised against copying them over for the betas (but this may be specific). As the core engine is the same, everything should be fine, though.

 

Performance wise, you might want to try the Nevada terrain with the Flat Shadows setting ON.

 

Have fun!

Thanks very much for the info. And, especially for the tip about Flat Shadows on the Nevada map. I had been enjoying excellent performance since coming back, and on a 6700k, and I was having flashbacks after loading up NTTR for the first time :) Now running mostly 60 fps on Nevada with everything maxed (except aa off, civ traffic on low) and flat shadows on. (admittedly haven't gotten into any action yet).

 

For an "alpha" as long as things continue to improve, it looks like NTTR is going to be my new playground in the Huey for a while :)

 

It seems DCS has made some genuine strides in a few areas. I'm pleased with that.

Mission Editor Map DCS World 2 NTTR

 

Hi All

Ive been looking through the various posts, so apologies if I missed a posting answering my question which is this.

Regarding the Mission editor in the NTTR when the Map level view is selected it shows the maps of the area as would be available to real life pilots (just shows how accurate the NTTR Map is) my question is, are these maps available for viewing outside of the sim and if so where would I find these files and what would be needed to view them.

 

Thanks in advance.

Crowman.

 

PS keep up the good work and looking forward to the next update.

Check out Lino_Germany's Beacon Maps. Maybe not 100% what you look for, but that's the first thing that comes to my mind. :thumbup:

How can I convert my DCS 1.5 Open Beta for stable, definitive, 1.5 version?

 

I updated 1.5 version, but the folder that DCS is installed remains the same: Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta.

 

The .exe file still the same too: DCS World OpenBeta.exe

 

My DCS version is 1.5.2.49392.141

You have installed the Open beta version, you can not convert the beta to Release version (but actually, beta and release version has the same version number 1.5.2.49392.141).

 

You can download the release version here: http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/downloads/world/stable/

 

you can maintain the beta version for testing, and with the 2.0 coming to beta, the 1.5 beta convert them on 2.0 beta version.

Wow! That Kuznetsov looks wonderful! Thanks for the info Silver_Dragon!

At last, we'll be able to crash-land on the personnel.

Hey guys, I gave the World 2.0 a shot today and I was really impressed. Those graphics are very suitable and the performance was buttery smooth on my old CPU.

I´m pretty much teased to reenter the cockpit for a deeper study of the mi8.

 

Good work ED, even if it took a little longer.

Confused about versions 1.5, 1.5 beta, 2.0 alpha

 

After a long time, I had a look in the download section on the DCS website.

 

There are currently three versions of DCS World:

- 2.0 alpha

- 1.5

- 1.5 beta

 

Is version 1.5 the final version and if yes, why is there an 1.5 beta?

If it is not final, why offering an 1.5 version if it is still in beta phase?

 

What about 2.0 alpha. Are there any advantages compared to 1.5 beside the NTTR map? Can I use 2.0 alpha only with the A10C module?

OK, at the moment, 1.5 and 1.5 Beta are exactly the same, just separate installs needed if you want to participate in Beta testing - and of course get all the updates on day 1.

 

2.0.1 Alpha is currently the only version that can work with the Nevada Test and Training Range map (which is a paid for add on).

 

So really, you need just 1 version (1.5.3) if you want to run the completed updates on the Caucasus map, and another one (2.0.1)(until the two versions are merged) to run the NTTR map.

1.5 is stable. this version should have little to no bugs and not crash.

 

1.5 beta has all the new stuff being made, possible bugs and crashes. frequent updates.

 

2.0 alpha has all the new stuff plus acces to Nevada. At some point in time the alpha and beta will merge into a single client from where you can select on wich terrain you would like to fly. You can fly all planes you own in the Nevada terrain. There's even a purchasable F15 campaign in the store, specifically for Nevada.
