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?

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

maybe because the SP crowd is a large majority?

what a shame, regarding this video the future will be 95% western hardware and gameplay. . .  no red forces, no cold war scenarios. never forget your roots. . .

I do not know if I should laugh or cry ...
I have been looking for hours for this place ...
I was hoping for a new map

I didn't receive this newsletter, and I have always been subscribed to them for years!.

 

So I just checked my account and for some reason the system had un-subscribed me. Anyone else had this? I wonder if it was something to do with a site update on ED's side?

 

Anyway, could someone fill me in on the contents please? as I doubt I will receive this one now...

There is no newsletter, the one sent was by mistake i guess - nothing was posted in the news thread here on the forum:

It contained literally the both words subject and message, hence my post a little earlier.

So yesterday, Friday, was New Years Day.  A national holiday in most countries.

 

I think we can all survive without it until next Friday, it's not like there is going to be any real developments between Christmas and New Year anyway, its family time and for most people a break.  I would hope that ED are no different.  

 

Surprised someone has even made a thread on it to be honest - in the interim go fly a new module or learn how to use the ones you have 🙂

I understand that the chance for a full Mig-29 module has melted like snow in the spring?

I was amazed at all the improvements that will be coming to DCS this year. I hope that one of the secret projects is the remodeling of aerial refueling where the probe behaves realistically with physics in the hoses, probes, etc.

Yeah, that part made me curious too. But then this is not really new to us here in the DCS universe. My understanding is that MiG-29 and Hind are still ok, anything more modern is not. Or would that include any russian military equipment that was ever used, say MiG-23 or similar? Would be interesting to hear more about this to have an idea of what we can expect in DCS at all in the future. Personally, I'm totally fine with Cold War equipment only, so my hope is that the aforementioned regulations do not rule out that as well.

Unfortunately, the loss of the content of the new machines on the side of RED is the nail in the coffin of DCS World. Soon, only Western planes will fly in the sky, because you have to tell yourself the truth that FC planes are only FC. The full module Mig-29, Su-27 or Su-30 should be a priority, moreover, it is not some modern machine. It is known about the newer ones that there is nothing to dream about.

PS. Well, maybe I went overboard with that coffin nail, but at least nobody will miss it. Ha ha ha 🤣

What an impressive first newsletter of the year!!

 

If only half of the announced features make it to DCS in 2021, it'll be a great year!

 

(Personally I'm, by far, most psyched about the new clouds)

The more feasible solution is to do earlier BLUFOR aircraft that are comparable to REDFOR modules we can actually do.
