Normandy Map Discussion


Recommended Posts

I dont want this thread to turn into a discussion on ED's business model. Here is the deal. The amount of work and effort that went into what is very high quality models and map, better than anything we have really seen in a flight sim cost a lot of money. They need to return on that, they are already giving away a number of maps and unit packs with the Kickstarter. This is the way it is, its not going to change.

 

People that want a WWII experience will want both. This is how they are going to be offered. Lets move forward from that, please.

worst news ever....not only that its delayed, i was assuming that anyway,...but charging people for AI units is really the worst decision ever...

how should that work online? how is a server supposed to host ww2 missions? people who have the map but dont have the units, could not join...worst news ever:bomb:

What a fantastic way to fragment the community.

 

The MP side of DCS is so small that any 'fragmentation' will have little or no impact on the player base as a whole.

Yes but that isn't the point is it, if you want to have an actual WW2 experience you're going to buy it. You said it yourself you won't be able to play any servers with the assets if you don't own them yourself.

Answered your own question. So enough.

Not following the dev news for some time now. Flipped through several pages of news and can't seem to find an answer: was wondering if release (or preview, beta , whatever ED calls this) of Normandy theater consolidates it with other theaters into 2.5 . Or will we have it as another standalone?

Thanks

 

Add: although I did not go crazy all out on that Kickstarter I did contribute few planes worth. How would I check if I'm entitled to receive the asset pack?

Check your backer rewards.

If you get the map you get the assets.

I imagine the bundle will always be available. If you don't get it in pre-purchase then it will be $60 which is the price of a new module that is not on sale. If you don't want to cough up $60, then I imagine DCS will put it on sale in the future (I would certainly assume as a bundle), though you would need to wait for a while before that sale I'm sure.

 

I get that people dont like to pay for the AI units, and it irked me a bit at first too. But then I realized they poured tons of work hours into the new modules (that most will be playable as Combined Arms it seems). That plus the fact that it is just as expensive to get the bundle as a new module makes me not care about it as much. If you're willing to buy the upcoming F-18 or any new module (which will most likely be the same price), why not get the bundle? Just because you could in theory split the purchases of the map and AI units, and pay more by doing so? Seems a bit petty.

 

Anyways, take what you will from my post. I will not respond to anyone who quotes me in a confrontational way because this is quickly going down a flame war path. I will leave with the fact that I have been waiting for this for a long time and I have no issues buying the bundle and playing it as essentially a brand new WWII simulator game.

Agreed. If I wan't already entitled to it for free I would grap the bundle in a heartbeat. Buying the map without the assets seems silly anyway.

What does the assets expansion really mean?

 

Are all those additional bombers planned as AI like the B17? Or some of them may be flyable?

The three best things in life are a good landing, a good orgasm, and a good bowel movement. The night carrier landing is one of the few opportunities in life to experience all three at the same time.

IF they ever become flyable, the aircraft... they will be new modules and need to be purchased as such I would imagine.
