I would post it but don't know how to post a news letter, so here some short ref; from it. The news letter has some nice graphics and pics.

 

TFC/ED NEWSLETTER

 

Friends!

 

This is the first of occasional newsletters to keep you informed of new developments for existing and future titles.

 

The first message is for holiday discounts!

DCS: Black Shark 2 - 30%

DCS: A-10C Warthog - 50%

 

Discounts last from 23 December till 9 January

 

The DCS: Black Shark 2 upgrade was released in November 2011, providing compatibility with DCS: A-10C Warthog and including new features. It can be purchased from http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/shop

Free patch 1.1.1.1 has been released for the Christmas & New Year holiday season for A-10C Warthog and Black Shark 2. This includes bug fixes, as well as new features, many based on user requests. http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/downloads/patches/

 

The development and localisation teams are working hard on finalising the French version of DCS: A-10C Warthog. The Spanish download version of DCS: A-10C Warthog is now available, and the retail DVD version is planned for a release in February.

 

Development continues on the upcoming add-on "Combined Arms". This paid-for add-on will allow A-10C Warthog, Black Shark 2, and Flaming Cliffs 3 owners to:

 

- act as ground force commanders as the mission is running,

- direct ground units,

- set fire missions for artillery and multiple rocket launchers,

- take the role of a Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC).

 

As the JTAC, players will have:

- night vision goggles,

- IR pointer,

- laser designator,

- Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR).

 

Several other new items are still being considered. Combined Arms will work in both single player and multiplayer missions.

 

Development also continues on Flaming Cliffs 3. This will be a paid-for update to the Flaming Cliffs series which brings it to the level of modern DCS, the most remarkable changes are:

 

- mission editor,

- AI,

- units,

- dynamic weather,

- graphics sfx.

 

We consider to include several improvements to aircraft flight models and systems, a resource management system, and several other new features. This will also make Flaming Cliffs online compatible with A-10C and Black Shark 2. The price will depend on the features we include.

 

Nevada map will become available in the summer. This will be a paid-for add-on that will be compatible with A-10C, Black Shark 2, and FC3. Users that purchased the A-10C beta will get this map for free.

 

The first "DCS Flying Legends" aircraft will be released in the first half of 2012. As soon as it has gone into "Alpha" testing we will announce the aircraft type.

 

And, of course - The next US fixed wing jet DCS aircraft is being worked in parallel!

 

PC PILOT, issue 78 to be published in February 2012 will include a review of Black Shark 2

All great news (like an early Christmas present) ... looking forward to the day when FC3, A-10 and BS2 all jammin' together over Nevada!!! These series of sims have been consuming the lion's share of my gaming time for the last few years ... looks like that will continue for the foreseeable future. :D

An early Christmas present? Are you kidding me ? Dear ED members, please don't send us sth we have known for almost two months as a Christmas present , you didn't even bother to change a single word.

 

I apologise - perhaps you would like a refund for that email?

So those of us that brought the early Beta are going to have to wait until the summer for Nevada. 18 months almost .... That SUCKS Bigtime :(

Remember the 346 Fire Fighters, Medics & Police who died on 9-11.......

 

Selective memory is a wonderful thing, especially when certain posts simply disappear into the ether never to be seen again, unless I have a copy of the original post copied and pasted into word documents and saved .... just in case :)

Am I an abusive idiot ?

More like six months. 18 months would be the case if it was to be released in summer 2013, which it is not. From now to summer 2012 is approximately six months.

Guys, how many times do you have to be reminded that the Nevada talked about here is not the Nevada that was in the first few open beta versions? ;)

 

Wolfstriked: as the newsletter states:
