I almost didn't even see that A-6 with the INCREDIBLE looking Marianas map below. Good grief, Nvidia/AMD... get your GPU stock act together! 😀

The improved water reflections caught my eye too. Typically at that angle the shore turns into a pixelated, shimmering reflection. I hope that improved water isn't limited to the Marianas map.

It might be, IIRC ED were trying something new with their terrain engine for that map, though not many details about it so far.

 

Personally, I'm waiting on the lights used on the SoH map (which look far better) to be ported over to other maps.

I dont get the hype for the A6. What is so special about this...

 

Fits perfectly with the Phantom and Tomcat, as does the Forrestal, Vietnam era, pretty iconic aircraft...

 

First carrier capable dedicated bomber, something a little different for a change.

 

Plus we've been waiting for it for ages.

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 from anything threatening.

 

…but it's mostly about the moustache, tbh.

Are newsletters still distributed by e-mail?

Because i got them on a regular basis and then it stopped (already a while ago).

Looking at my profile on the DCS website, i'm not"subscribted" anymore which could be the problem but when i hit the subcribe button, i get a message that an e-mail is send for confirmation but that one never arrives (it's the same as the one used for purchasing and that always works), and it does not arrive in any spam box either.

So where in the world is my confirmation e-mail?

Personal Wish List: A6 Intruder, Vietnam theater, decent ATC module, better VR performance!

Yeah the shots in the newsletter seem exclusive to it.

 

I don't know, maybe they forgot to add it to the screenshots?

It sure did for me too, that clouds shot on the Marianas map (?) looked phenomenal.

At this point I would assume it's safe to say we won't see any modules released until after 2.7 hits beta and maybe after it's first stable build. That being said, the new screenshots of the Marianas map look awesome. Can't wait to fly over that in rainy conditions with the new clouds.
