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 🙂

Mission Editor Templates

Creating accurate composition for unit groups like a Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM) battery can be a bit complex and timely for new Mission builders. We recently added many new SAM templates to the Mission Editor that includes systems for the United States, Russia, Iran, and others.

 

This allows you to simply select a country and the SAM system, and place an entire battery with one mouse click.

 

Why do you tell us things you literally did in the past in the news letters instead of telling us about the changes and additions in the patch notes right away? derpyconfused.png

 

I spent lots of time just yesterday buildung up SAM sites... could've flown more if I had known that, but well now those have my personal design instead twi-notbad.png

 

Anyway, I'm totally glad about this addition, it was really overdue. Back in the LOMAC days I loved to put those "MSB 1980" and "MSB 1990" sites on the map to get nice target practicing ranges quickly... lots of targets right next to each other, that was ideal for weapons employment training for any kind of ordnance. More templates like those would be absolutely welcome twilightsmile.png

Today's newsletter subject looks a little odd, compared to the more thoughtful usual subject provided as "Weekend News":

But thanks for the info on the A10 cockpit update efforts (as well as the Ka-50) - really looking forward to this! :thumbup:

It is odd, it feels like deja-vu, it's been posted already I'm 99.9% sure, not a problem, just checking, there's probably an update to it, just using the same wording for the intro I guess.

EDIT: Dunno maybe I think I saw it yesterday late at night only on the site, not on the forum (as otherwise it wouldn't be highlighted) and well sleeplessness probably does things to you, but otherwise I'm staying good cycle, just sometimes I carry over a bit.

 

I am looking forward to this, I already bought 2 campaigns last year for A-10C also as a token of thanks, even tho I haven't even finished the boundled one, need to deal with the jets.

The new crash handler looks interesting - if it just would come to use. 99% of my crashes are either clean CTD without anything or those typical Windows style APPCRASH thingies with no crashlog ever written at all.

Hi ED,

Why the new bug relative to F-14B by Heatblur (Crash to Desktop frequently due to Jester sound)

is not mentioned in the Newsletter...

And why it's not mentioned in Changelog has "Known Issues".

Because of that after upgrading, a lot of people have to revert to 2.5.4.28615.

 

:cry:

About the newsletter itself: Can we have the classic topic of the email subject revert back to simply "Weekend News" (pretty please)?

 

The last few weeks changed that to some random subject, and today's subject looked really odd in my inbox: "Anton in Air".... I really miss the old "Weekend News" subject.

I don't understand? If I paid for the map why is it now free, to these people now?

 

shouldn't you own the map to be able to go on to a server?

The map is only free to use on a dedicated server, the hosting mashine, if the -norender option is active.

 

so you can host on those maps, but cant fly on the same computer.

 

if you want to fly on it, you still need to buy/have the maps.

Its only for dedicated servers, you still need to own the map to be able to connect to server.

All this software take a huge amount time and money to make so they should not be free all.

Great to see the maps becoming free for hosting rigs.

 

BTW, still everyone has to pay for them. With the server alone and no clients, no one is playing at all. It's just totally unnecessary to have to pay up twice for the maps just to be able to set up a server to play on and this will now come to an end, which I'm glad about.
