Actually, the "world" issue raises a point:
Has an SDK been provided for third party development of maps? Imagine what the ORBX team could do for DCS...
Theres not a lot documentation out there for it, and it is all for the "old" terrain engine, but it exists. Hopefully the "EDGE" stuff will get an SDK.
Missions provided in A-10C were so fragmented that it's very hard to feel that I'm in the battle field. Mission creation for MP is just a joke. IMHO, if DCS stands for true "combat" simulator, focuses should be on that part rather than "world" part.
I agree with some of the A-10C missions campaigns, personally though I think the ones created for BS2 are far superior. But, how exaclty is MP mission creation a joke? The missions created for multiplayer are almost always better than the ones created for single player.
