How much hard disk space does dcs syria map require?


Recommended Posts

Well... time to uninstall SC (unplayable at moment) and Nevada (nobody I known fly in this map) to save space.

Hehe and the stock answer to problems in the current release candidate is "have an older install to play module x/DLC Campaign y" when it was functional..."

At c250GB for a "typical" DCS install...that's not a realistic solution for most people...

And point is? Syria map is entering early access. Everybody knows that, it says so on the store page. So what does older DLCs got to do with that? OB is OB. It's implied in the name. You still hung about Warthog II?

With the Ka-50, F-16C, UH-1H, Nevada, and Persian Gulf, my DCS Open Beta install is weighing in at 143 GB right now. Hey that's 53 GB lighter than the current Call of Duty Modern Warfare XD.
I don't mind a large map install, as I think it just means more details.

SSD drives have gotten really cheap, even the stick based ones. I literally have SSD drives taped to the inside of my case with Duct Tape they are so small and light.

 

I think I have like 4 1+ Terabyte drives now, DCS lives comfortably all on its own drive. :lol::lol:

No issues with the Syria map (already purchased)

Will only be hung about A10C II if its release renders modules I have purchased historically, unplayable except by having a side by side install of an older version to play that content I have purchased

 

(As has already happened with Operation Piercing Fury)

The size of the SYria Map (and consequently the size of a typical DCS install) renders the reccomende d- have a 2.5.6 version alongside your release version a laughable solution!

To prevent that, you could play the Campaigns when you purchase them, instead of waiting months or years to play them.

You keep saying that but ED has never said you need to keep a legacy version of DCS to keep flying the old A-10C, they have said they will maintain both version, but don't expect anything drastically to the old A-10C (like the last 5 years.....). Maybe wait for some official news first

Yup, I see you!! I've got four OLD Samsung 512GB 840s in stripe set, which gives me 1,8TB or something. Seven years old, not one hickup!

Well, from other posts I know that didn't happened. Jason purchased and it stopped working before he could finish it. So he has a point.

OK, sorry to hear that .. I played OPF years ago and it's been out of the Store for at least 6 months now.

 

Seems that it can still be downloaded from here:

tough I don't know if it is actually playable or not with the latest DCS versions.

Yup! I think Jason was really unlucky. If I remember correctly Purchased, stopped working, if I remember other posts. Well, things happen, so I can put myself at his side of the table.

That said!!!!!

Syria map is gonna RUUUUULE!!!!

 

PS: Thank you Rudel for the content you provide to this community! Please keep it coming!

Why? Was there mention of a time limit on their functionality on the ED purchase page?

Would ED reccoment I DON'T purchase Baltic Dragon's Raven One campaign tomorrow...in case it is rendered non-functional by future base DCS updates?

What other "serious" (not kiddie) games render purchased DLC obselete over time? (It certainly doesn't happen with my CK2 or CMNAO content)

Hehehe I know i'm a grouch...but ED could solve an awful lot of their customer base complaints if they bore in mind the old adage "first do no harm..." with their updates!

give credit where credit is due, they are doing less harm with their updates and keeping stable more on parity with OB...
