Downloading Mods ?


Recommended Posts

I hope I ask this right. When purchasing and installing mods can they be downloaded to a computer that does not have DCS installed and then transfered to the one that does. For large downloads I go to town with my laptop and use the wifi at the library so I don't hit my data cap at home.

Thanks Justin

No, the modules are added in the Module Manager, which you reach through the game menu, there you decide what is downloaded. You'd have to use the PC (can be laptop) good enough* to run the DCS, download what's needed, and then transfer the files into the same place on destination PC DCS installation folder. You then add the modules and hopefully the installer will find the files on your PC. It is not supported by the devs.

btw: "Mods" name is usually used for free user/community-made modifications for the game, which can also be a module. For all paid DLC we use the name "modules".

 

*Minimum system requirements (LOW graphics settings): OS 64-bit Windows 7/8/10; DirectX11; CPU: Intel Core i3 at 2.8 GHz or AMD FX; RAM: 8 GB (16 GB for heavy missions); Free hard disk space: 60 GB; Discrete video card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 / AMD R9 280X or better; requires internet activation.

 

OK, there's another way for the older/weaker PC's. Use this tool:

to install the files and then tranfer them. You might not have to run DCS for this process.

yes, you can have dcs installed in more than one computer, it will run just in one at a time. So, you carry the laptop to the library and install dcs on it. Then open dcs and use the module manager to install your modules.

 

when at home, simply copy the whole dcs folder onto your other pc, use the same folder names would make it easier.
