Because people would not be able to play online together with different versions. And not everyone is going to keep track manually updating a module they have not bought, so every module will need to set up an auto updater which all launch with the base DCS updater for everyone to run the same version.

That's not the point Flogger......the game shouldn't need an update just to add a new aircraft. If the game was fully integrated we could all have the same DCS version but different aircraft even on a new release.

As others have mentioned on a new airframe alpha/beta/release ED have to change or update the core game just to support it.....the same happens with a lot of campaigns. It just goes to show that the game isn't modular at all.

well I guess the good side of this is that ED have to release a patch for the whole sim.

Because otherwise they might wait X years before releasing a patch... who knows...

Considering that ED patches breaks more stuff than it really fixes, I fail to understand how can this be a "good side"??? confused

Exactly.

One large update a year, with the rest of the time fixing bugs would be a way more efficient route to follow. It would also tremendously help Third Party devs.

But hey, why look at the rest of the software/game industry right?

oh I hope they have sorted the download issue when Normandy is released......not rely on joe public to come up with the solution of downloading the map, creating a torrent and seeding it through Utorrent like we all remember when Nevada was released......must suck when the on the books testers who have the title of "ED TESTER" under their name can't work out a solution and joe public comes up with the fix, has it endorsed by the producer himself and writes up a statement when ED had nothing to do with the fix......Oh I can't wait to see their servers fail when Normandy is released.....

WOW. what a #%&*$# patch.
So this list is a list of all the important fixes/errors on DCS' s todo list.
Yet even though we still have bad lods, bad terrain textures, and bad performance in the NTTR map the best fix they could come up with is converting the Spifire altimeter scale from ATA to Milibars!!!!
No mention of any fixes in the pipeline or the fact that they know the Terran texures are FUBAR and will be fixing it in the next patch, nada.

Wow.
talk about getting your priorities right LOL.

what next - We have changed the size of the soldiers boots from a size 9 to a size 10.

I think something went wrong with the new? shaders/reflections in the cockpit and there is a side effect with the edges of the canopy glass dds file...I guess...anyway its a pain flying in NTTR since a LONG time and even more now with this...

Yes. All the way down the patch notes they state that you have to install the MS VC14 Runtime for DCS to work now.

But I'm holding off for now. The new 2.0.5 patch broke so many things in DCS, it's mind-boggling how this mess could pass the quality control.

I hadnt to update anything as I already had the VC updated but I just got banned with 40% warning level for saying that the NTTR was "forgotten" after MONTHS of nothing but bad patches and more that a whole YEAR in beta biggrin duck ...and for not "behaving as they want me to behave" I guess.

Yes "praise us or STFU" is how one is to behave otherwise one gets ones "posting rights revoked"

Wags October 2017 "the investment vs. generated revenue has been excellent for the World War II aircraft. In fact, the P-51D Mustang has twice the cost effectiveness of the A-10C Warthog."
