Regular news/updates from ED would be nice


Recommended Posts

I am just asking for more news about DCS: Supercarrier, that’s all.

I know that we get weekly DCS updates, but between one trailer, only few captures, scarce informations and daily updates, I think it is possible to strike a proper balance, isn’t it ?

 

I agree. I'd like to see a video of it without the flash and flare. Just a simple jet taxi to the CAT, launch and recovery.

But honestly I'd rather that they miss the Q1 deadline if its not ready or will further break the game on release (especially MP).

 

I agree. The current state of the game is terrible. Please do pull another F16 release.

I know, devs, it's not fair, but you guys invented that dratted progress bar, so :P

 

 

And having had to code the silly things in the past they are a pain to get right - it is why people moved to spinning wheels, repeating bars etc. Maybe a two more weeks™ spinning option :D

wow....just wow.

 

this sim has only gotten better and better every since i started 3 years ago. i have opted into the beta version so i understand that things are incomplete and that there are bugs. i am ok with it and love DCS.

 

as a real world pilot i can tell you that it is amazingly realistic and detailed.

 

it sounds as if you are not okay with this. i would suggest that you stop all playing of DCS as it looks as if you are the kind of person who is never happy.

 

good luck to you

Exactly right! Also the, "Module not responding..." option. :joystick: If they wanted to do it right, they could hire a whole firm to manage the forum progress bars! Jobs Jobs Jobs :thumbup:

Please be more open minded. It's perfectly possible to love ED's (completed?) products and still be frustrated with the lack of comms at the same time.

My opinion....

1. Let ED do real thing not news and reports, I know from personal experience it is pain in... all updates, reports etc.

 

2. If even FAQ for all question exist always you find 10 person out of 100 who ask same question. So double waste of time first writing FAQ and reply to those people with link to FAQ. And maintaining FAQ and update it require effort as welll

I think my first flight sim was Falcon. 1987 or 88 ish. Janes became popular and was damn good. MS FS. Just wasn't my thing. DCS BS. Only crap. Since then DCS has been on top. For those upset about some of the modules you need to read the fine print. Early Access. I am somewhat on your side with just how many of them are still Early Access but DCS is still BY FAR the best Combat flight sim you can play today.

As far as the SuperCarrier goes. I am fine with it will be released when ready. Although it looks like it will be released with readyish but that doesn't mean you have to buy it. I am. DCS is the longest games series I have ever played. I don't see that changing. Between software and hardware it is one hell of an investment but it's been worth every penny. Time to go practice being a sea dart to get ready.

Playing since '87 and only 37 posts.

After reading this I think you should post more often.

Over three months since pre-orders opened and that trailer video with no news. I agree that they should not rush this product out and should take their time. The communication issue with ED will never go away and it will always be the same. I think that's the part that gets confused in this community. Just because people ask for updates or news it does not mean that they are rushing. Tell us "Hey, this is what we are up to this month with the Supercarrier module. Or hey, we are doing this to the Hornet." That is what is lacking. Let's hope for a homerun this time around.

Well, IMO, I think the SC is the only module I have seen with such a lack of promotion. As you said, 3 months and 1 video which was 3 months ago. I too want them to get it right for release, but the lack of info is mind-boggling. Now if they were to say, we don't want to provide any footage until a release date is known so they can do a release trailer or training video, then I'll understand that. But this constant "soon" is like nails on a chalkboard to me.:)

Kinda scary. They are hoping for a Q1 release. I honestly would not care if they said that they are pushing it back but give continuous updates. There has not been a Hornet update in quite some time. It makes me think that something is going on internally at the company. Updates and features were coming out monthly but have come to a grinding halt over the past 8-10 months. Leading up to the release of the Hornet / Persian Gulf map, the communication was awesome. Wags did some live streams, everyone was hyped.

So there is the weekly newsletter, that is pushed via e-mail and here on the forum. Additional infos on the updates for the OpenBeta on a weekly/half weekly basis, by the community managers... I would not call that "missing" communication. It might not be the message that you are waiting for, but there is no "lack of communication", I guess.

As much as I enjoyed the news about an airshow and guns, it was very sparse on the product that is supposed to release in a few weeks.

Ok then, when I submit a bug I will describe how nice LEDs in PC are and tell your support that there is no lack of communication, just it's not the message they are waiting for, but they can't complain :thumbup:

Danger zone!

Thanks for the reply. This thread is about missing communication for the Super Carrier Module.

You know, the product that is scheduled for imminent release. You get the point. Also some of those "news letters" are just product sales.

Also, news letters are not the correct avenue for distributing this kind of information. It should be stickied on this forum.
You mean like this and the other "News and Updates"?

https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?p=2537483

...I guess the lack of info on the Carrier is based on a lack news to show. Aka "coding XYZ" or testing feature abc, without any real news?

My guess is they are doing a lot of testing against the bugfixes for 2.5.6 to ensure the fixes don't break anything. ur that's just a guess. :dunno:

Please keep an eye on our newsletters and patch notes.

 

We are planning an update this week for open beta, if all goes well we will publish patch notes with any changes made.

 

 

 

Thanks

No, I said this forum. Where you'd expect to find it.

 

I'm unsure why ED continue to bury information in the news letters, then get confused as to why they're criticised for poor comms. News letters are good don't get me wrong, but not everyone knows about them, and that's not the place for up to date info.

That IS a thread in the "Official Updates" section in this very ED forum.

Exactly where I would expect "News and Updates" to be posted.

Together with the Changelog threads and other updates. All stickied and sorted by recent posting and locked, so all the info does not get buried in comments like in the usual threads, where Big newy and 9-lines update and info posts get "overlooked" because people can't be bothered to "read through that much pages"...

Countless times they said the same thing over and over again, yet these questions are being asked for no purpose than to stir things up it seems.

Each Wednesday - "Update today?"

Each Friday - "No update about XYZ?"

And then "no communications" "somethings up" and other tinfoil hat theories in between these days.

 

Accept the facts - they are working on it, and also think for a moment about the world we live in these days.

 

Relax, have fun, stay safe.

That thread is still 25 pages long, covering everything DCS newsworthy. There is no specific update thread in this (sub)forum.

 

I'm not sure why you're so intent on disagreeing with me; the very presence of threads like this indicate there's a comms issue.
