Question: I don't fly much in MP, do we still have that desync with clouds? Where I see a cloud others don't?

Yep. About a month ago, my wingman lost visual on me in a cloud that existed only for him. I had no cloud at that place and kept visual on him throughout.

Also, a lot of people just find steam gauges, iron bombs, and getting up-close and NoE to hit your target more interesting than punching in coordinates and dropping murder bots from 30k ft, 20nm away

Hi all,    we have made it very clear the date is subject to change, internal testing continues and if we need more time we will take it, I think most of you want 2.7 to be the best it can b

I'm sorry to nitpick, but DCS is so much more than a game ... it's the best flight Simulator available to consumers 🙂

That's just sad, I don't want to be that guy but... That's just really sad for 2020. I hope we see improvements soon, ED has the skills.

Any future expectations of the Tornado series and the Red force Mig 27 has now been VERY effectively shut down. There are not many planes down the pipeline on project for most to venture for, other than going for the Peak cold war era jets from the 60s and so on. So far, there is no mention or plans for Cold war era jets.

 

Which is an absolute shame, because the vast majority of assets in DCS that aren't BLUFOR modules are around the mid-to-late Cold War.

The Iconic F-4 Phantom module itself remains on vague development note and appears to be push back to a much later unknown date...looks to me, its going take 2024 around for that to happen...

 

I'm personally hoping a 3rd party will pick it up, as the message said (wink wink Heatblur). An early 70s any variant will be the perfect counterpart to the MiG-21bis and will fit brilliantly with the SA-2, SA-3 and the WIP SA-5, all of which are 70s versions as far as I know.

I do not know what to feel about the Apache. Since I do not own any helo modules. Tred the Blackshark, found helos to be much more difficult to fly and be effective. I certainly do love to fly it...too bad I am terrible with helos.

 

AH-64 was hinted during the Syria map trailer. But we thought it was those fast movers and not helos. Not many of us are helo flyers, even when I do find the Hind and the Apache so very iconic...yes, the Blackshark too, all of which are intensely combat capable.

 

I'm looking forward to the Apache, it's a more or less a contemporary to the Ka-50 we already have. The only problem is that if it ends up as a D (AFAIK, despite the 2021 and beyond video, the RADAR is kinda in a state of limbo at the moment, which is the main highlight of the D over an A.

 

As for not many helo fliers, I'd imagine it's probably because there aren't many helicopters.

 

Modules I own: F-14A/B, F/A-18C, Supercarrier, F-16CM, AJS-37, F-5E-3, MiG-21bis, Ka-50, A-10C (+ A-10C II), UH-1H, Mi-8MTV2, P-47D, P-51D, FC3, MiG-15bis, Yak-52, CA, C-101, Hawk

There are a lot more helo drivers than you guys may think. Indeed the Huey and Blackshark were some of the very first DCS World modules released.  Then helo development seemed to stagnate for a long time, until recently it picked up again with the Kiowa, Hind and now Apache.  Some of us who came for the helos ended up staying for the jets when nothing new came out for us for a long time.  Many will now be going back to being rotorheads!

 

DCS World has about the most realistic helicopter flight modelling possible on the PC (as it also does for fixed wing), nothing else really comes close, so I’m pumped to see the Helo stable getting larger!

Don't forget the BO-105 (and even the Eurocopter) 😃

So am I, as long as they don't forget to bring the Huey and Mi-8 up-to-date to DCS 2.5 standards, with PBR textures and proper lighting etc. The sooner the better...

I'm glad to see the upcoming goodies. When the "eagerly awaited brain melter" was first mentioned, my initial though was just the AH-64D, and well, it's "just" that even though BN kept saying it never had been announced or teased before. Still glad to have it in the pipeline officially now. The clouds in that video look so awesome it's hard to believe that it is DCS I was watching. What a great job! Can't wait to clear those skies in 10 seconds flat rdlaugh.png

 

And as always, the quality of the video went from 10 to 11 - again. I really wonder when GA reaches his peak where he can't get any better... and Nick's voice in it made it (almost) perfect luna-trcv.png

 

I wish the team Happy Hearth's Warming, as happy as it can be with the current restrictions. Fly safe and see you in a hopefully better year! fsgrin.png

Good news, the Mig-29 is to be after Black Shark 3, unfortunately work on the BS3 is suspended due to lack of people and it is not known when it will start again. So my excitement is very limited.😞  Still, I wish ED the best.

The answer might be obvious to some, but while browsing the ED shop page I started to wonder where exactly the screenshot featuring coastlines, mountains, lakes (and clouds) might be located.

I do not recognize it from any of the current or WIP maps. Perhaps the Falklands?

Since Falklands is a 3rd party map and ED mostly just teases their own inhouse stuff, my tip is its the upcoming new free map mariana islands. I will for sure buy that apache since its another helicopter, but i really hoped that the mystery module would have been a redfor plane or another cold war bird.

Doesn't look like it's the upcoming Cyprus either. In that case I hope it's Scotland or Norway for low level flying!

I checked Norwegian Air Force bases along the coast (that was assuming you could see a runway in the lower left of the picture - which proved incorrect), but could not find any topography matching the screenshot.

It´s not Cyprus or the Marianas and I‘d  say there‘s no such spot on the Falkland Islands as well...

Possible, but there is really no precedence for ED doing this, especially if they display it in such a prominent place. 🙂 

Where do you see a runway in the image?
