Thank you for the expansion of the module!


Recommended Posts

Regarding the Friday news: Maybe I missed the post that says thanks for adding in elements that weren't ever stated they would be in the Syria terrain module, but from myself, since I asked so much about them, I want to say thank you, because it (will) make the map absolutely amazing.

Cyprus adds a Greek-Turkish possibility and turns the sea into a contested oil zone, future proofing the interest in the module being relevant to a broader amount of countries. It makes Turkey stand as potenital friend or foe on the map. It add the British base which is used in this theatre quite a lot, by other nations too. Greece becomes relevant country faction to create simulations with, which i'm sure the Greek guys are delighted about. WHen the Eurofighter comes out, it will have a home and we can plan modern misisons that we've seen in the last few years.

Dier-e-Zor was the scene of most of the late war ISIL strikes, on the Euphrates and in terms of missions, key and featuring often. It makes 350nm between Akrotiri and Deir E Zor across the map.

Shayrat and Tiyas' omissions were very obvious from the begining. Tiyas being strongly connected to Iran and both involved in several airstrikes, both being active, militarily. I missed them when looking to make real scenarios.

 

If anyone was on the fence about the Syria map, get off and get your credit card out, it's beyond worth it, its got the highest number of unique model buildings on any map. Just Damascas alone - I recently made a mission to attack the Ministry of Defence and found I could use real world pictures for the brieding, because it was recognisable that clearly.

Again, thanks Ugra.

Having been based at Episkopi from 1982-1984, Cyprus is indeed a welcome addition, however unless it receives a LOT of detail to match the terrain of Syria, it could be an albatross around UGRA's neck.

 

Cyprus needs to be as detailed as it comes, with the Troodos mountains and the various valleys, gorges and ravines that are scattered all around the Island..

 

The Syria map is my favourite map now, even on my shitty laptop, I'm still able to enjoy it..

The additions look great, but I notice that the screenshot of the new map cuts off at Damascus in the south. I hope that's not a tradeoff for adding Cyprus?

 

I also noticed this detail, but the announcement specifies "a massive 800x600 km map size". I did a map check this morning and it looks like they don't take anything away, let's hope. The red rectangle is about 800x600. Really GREAT scenery.

Being a Cypriot (and possibly the only active one right now in these forums) makes me a very happy buyer.

 

How awesome it is to see to my own country in DCS world. I was not expecting them to render the entire island, just the RAF Akrotiri part, so I'm quite pleased that they included all airports/airfields, including the abandoned Nicosia International (which is currently under UN control in the "Green zone".

 

I can't wait to check it out and provide some feedback to Ugra media. Great job!!

At the moment we have 33 airbases on the map, on new map picture i count 12 new so that is 45 and they state that will be final 51, so what are new 6 bases that we cant see on the map? Anyone? Diyarbakir? Tel Aviv?

When I first bought this map, the first thing I did was fly out to the location of Dier-ez-Zur to see if we could even make a tiny sliver workable.

 

The inclusion of Dier-ez-Zur opens up the addition of so many new scenarios.

 

Now, we just need more of Northern Iraq, so we can get scenarios like the Battle of Haditha Dam for a 160th SOAR missions!

Hey Guys and Urga!

 

I m do delighted to see Cyprus comming up nicelly to DCS!

As a frequent Cyprus/Larnaca visitor, I m delighted to land in the sim where I land for a living too :)

 

I hope it does not set the bar too high in my mind about how the place should look like but there are specific things I ll look for with pleasure!

 

I saw that the Dekhelia UN base will be modeled too. that's cool too!

 

About that, it is possible to still squeeze 2 standby runway on this island.

 

There are 2 portions of freeway that can be used as standby runways too,

one on the A5 Larnaca-Limassol and the other one on the A1 Limassol-Nicosia. that on runs trough a green area with olives trees and has a road leading to the Stavrovourni monastery where you have a big army base there.

Cyprus has a lot of hidden military assets in a few places that I cant wait to discover on the map.

There Use to be a field in Pyla too (it is now a bird watching sanctuary near the freeway) from where the French forces were based during the Suez canal issue....

 

Along with Syria... so much potential...
