FC3 definitely worthwhile especially after ED's announcement of future upgrades.

.. and CA is pants. :)

Quite the contrary, its bloody awesome. Especially in MP if you have a bunch of people in CA and pilots working together.

 

Proper JTAC, troop insertion on request whit the Huey. Dynamicly setting artillery fire missions.

Keeping the supply chain going.

I knew i should have put in bold it was only my opinion. I think its pants. The world would be very dull if we all had the same tastes. :)

 

For one, multiplayer wouldn't have any ground commanders. :P

May I then suggest that you qualify your statements to explain this view of your preferences? Otherwise you are just assuming that the OP has the same interests you have. ;)

Personally I enjoy DCS for the A-10C and its high level of details & realism, still during this summer sale I bought FC3 (and the mandatory Lock on -__-) to have plenty of planes to have fun with in both solo & multiplayer, in a more casual manner.

 

Mostly I did it to support ED and throw some more cash at them as I will mostly stick to the A-10C, but it's nice to know in multiplayer I can can take part in any mission or any role that it needs me to, especially considering the new highly detailed 6dof cockpits and upcoming AFM. Also I think these casual planes makes for a great way to learn all the tactics, weaponry, anti-air, AI behavior in an easy to fly and operate aircraft rather than in a simulated aircraft like the A-10C that is a challenge to operate on its own. I just hope ED doesn't take it as a sign to dedicate more resources to casual modules that the highly detailed ones so I also bought both helicopters to support ED & 3rd parties but I probably won't fly them any time soon, I mean love helis, more than fixed wings, but these two models just doesn't tickle my fancy. I'd have bought the Combined Arms module but I just really cannot stand being that close to the 1990s terrain and the (lack thereof) soldier/vehicles animations, I just want to be up in the air and forget about it all ^^.

 

That would be my incentives for FC3.

I wasn't being very serious..of course it has its merits, but i purchased CA and have used it for a combined time of maybe 40 minutes. The ground terrain looks too much like a 1990 video game for me to enjoy it. And i have no interest in being a commander or jtac or anything similar in DCS World. Compared to countless hours in the Shark.

 

I agree with that, Combined Arms has a good concept, but I think peoples not really interested in JTAC'ing will miss some eye candy. I personally prefer to be JTAC than flying then I prefer to play the famous Arma 2 with it's mod which IMHO allows more realism for a JTAC role (though the realism can depend of the server you play on).

Otherwise I don't think you'll regret CA, it's pretty good, and it will of course get better in the future...

I think CA really can be an awesome module that makes for great multi sessions, and on paper its absolutely awesome, but right now when you actually look at the product meh. I've decided to buy it afterall just to help in showing DCS there's an interest for it and to give that little extra support while taking advantage of the summer sale but that's really with hopes they work on a new engine in the near future in which case I might even play it!
