This was in the Weekend News email:

'These three aircraft are well underway and we plan to release one or more in 2019. With the addition of the new damage model, dynamic campaign, new World War II maps, and more units added to the World War II Assets Pack like the Ju-88, Bf 109G, C-47, A-20G, and others, DCS World War II will continue to grow and bring great new gameplay!'

I don't care one way or the other as I don't play it, but you guys should be happy that a dynamic campaign is coming in 2019 - isn't that what BMS has ?

I am not that sure anymore that I have the P-47, can't remember if I chose it or if it was part of my kickstart or the Mosquito or P-40, the Il-2 P-47D28 piqued my curiosity about the DCS lineup,

Given ED's utter incompetence and the severe limits around the number of assets that can be used concurrently within the engine, I'm not expecting too much from a dynamic campaign......and certainly nothing that will be comparable to Falcon 4.0/BMS

It will probably be the current "Create Fast Mission" spread over several missions, ED charging 30 bucks for it and the sheeple screaming "throwing money at screen", "ThAnK yOu Ed, YoU gUyS aRe ThE BeSt!!!111!!1 LoLlolLOL" whilst ethnic cleansing any and all thread, post and user that mentions MBot's Dynamic Campaign Engine.

Thankfully, I've already downloaded all campaigns for it to my external HDD, together with a pdf print-out of all threads about it, updated to november 2018. I'll make them available on SimHQ when the purge begins smile

Do they delete anything to do with Mbot's DCE now, or you mean when they put their own DC out to prevent competition?

The same stuff happened in the past with other modules, so I doubt the modus operandi will change for the DC. If/When the DC launches, it will be paid, and it will be as if Mbot's work never existed smile

So I was just looking into and reading about Mbot's DCE and saw this interesting snippet:

Weirdly, the AI leader will climb with only one wingman though with the same setup, but not 2 or 3. So with the usual flights of 4, this means that leaders will again hang low over the target area, getting shot down frequently.

Very confusing and extremely frustrating, considering one month ago everything was working great.

DCS Middle east could be of interest....

Project Middle East
The “Middle East” project is a unique theater of operations, which includes missions and companies of military confrontation in the Middle East from the mid-1970s to the present.

This project allows users to use virtually the entire arsenal of military equipment and DCS aircraft and includes the reproduction of the events of one of the largest military conflicts of our time:

- The War of the Doomsday of 1973;

- Lebanon war of 1982;

- The release of Syria from the terrorists in 2017.

The project will present a map of 610 * 440 km in size, which includes almost all the states on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea. It will present such large cities as Israeli Haifa and Shefaran, Lebanese Beirut and Tripoli, Turkish Adana and Gaziantep, Jordanian Irbit and Jerash, and of course the cities of the Syrian Arab Republic - Damascus, Homs, Hama, Lattakia, Iglib, Aleppo, Raqka and etc. In the project you can see the real monuments of ancient architecture - the colonnades and the amphitheater of Palmyra, the citadel of Allepo, the fortress of Krak de Chevalier, the mosque of Muhammad Al - Amin and others.

More than 20 airfields will be implemented on the map, including the international airports of Damascus and Beirut, the US airbase Incirlik. And of course, the base of the Russian VKS Hmeymim and the Navy base Tartus will be presented.

Recall that Syria is a state in the Middle East, bordering Lebanon and Israel in the southwest, with Jordan in the south, with Iraq in the east and with Turkey in the north. Washed by the Mediterranean Sea to the west. The modern statehood of Syria has a little more than 70 years, but civilization originated here as far back as the 4th millennium BC. the capital is Damascus, one of the oldest, constantly inhabited cities in the world. In addition, Damascus is also the oldest of all modern capitals in the world.

After the #%&*$# job they did on the Normandy map, i'm not holding my hopes up for this to be any good. 610*440 is the largest map to date though, and the region has a lot of gorges that should be great fun to fly through, so perhaps I'll buy it if the environment is done justice.

I'm glad that they found out what the geographical location of Syria is, and that " civilization originated here as far back as the 4th millennium BC.", even though by that time civilization had already spread to all corners of the globe....
The region was important in ancient times because it was the starting ground of the Copper Age, but calling it "origin of civlization" is just another proof that the people that work on these sims didn't pay attention in school and now try to Wikipedia/Google their way out of it.

I'm glad to see that Ugra Media is responsible for both the Normandy map and Il-2 maps though. There was a discussion on SimHQ a couple of years ago why both sims have these weird oversaturated colors to simulate western europe. Now we know why smile .

I have Normandy, I flew in it for about half an hour. You are right about the oversaturated colors, that was enough for me to shelve it as an option in the installer. WW2 just isn't my thing in DCS, Spent enough time in WW2 aircraft in the likes of like Il-2, CFS, SWOTL etc.
I would like to see DCS spend some time on the Combined arms module, especially if they created realistic ground pounder soldiers for MP. Somethine along the lines of BIS's VBS2 or even if it was of arma2 graphics engine instead of arma3.

eg; be a grunt\MP fireteam, be inserted by UH-1, move building to building, cover to cover, and the ability to climb to the top of a building, lase targets for Air support.

The graphics for AI grunts currently is pathetic, cheap 2d paper cut outs. Needs an overhaul. Still in the same state as FC1\FC2

All well and good to be building these terrains for air junkies, no love for people who wish to fight on the ground.

This weeks newsletter is undoubtedly the best newsletter released so far. I'd give DCS another 12 months for those who walked away from the series before coming back to it. Some good changes ahead. Changes members here have been asking for years to see in DCS.

DC, servers, CA changes and upgrades to name a few that I have personally bashed to no end amongst other items on the list.

Certainly it sounds great, but we are still waiting from stuff from the previous year previews

2018
Quote
DCS World 2.5 by the end of January
- DCS: F/A-18C Hornet
- DCS: Strait of Hormuz Map
- DCS: F-14 Tomcat
- DCS: JF-17
- DCS: MiG-19
- DCS: Mi-24P Hind
- DCS: F-4E Phantom II
- DCS: Bo-105
- C-101CC variant for the DCS: C-101 module
- DCS: Yak-52
- DCS: I-16
- DCS: Christen Eagle II
- New aircraft carriers
- Other new maps and continued updates to our existing maps
- Several other unannounced projects

We will also be working on improvements to clouds [don't know if this happened] , explosions with improved proximity damage, virtual reality, spotting system, network play [don't know if this happened] , Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR), air-to-air missiles, and performance optimization with the inclusion of the Vulkan API. In parallel, we will continue to support and improve our existing modules. [well, kind of, sort of repairing bugs after multiple years of being there, with the MiG-15 repaired in december, but the F-86, UH-1, Mi-8, Spitfire and Yak-52 being as broken as ever, together with the FC3 tutorials and missions, and the NTTR missing from the NTTR map]
With the pending release of DCS World 2.5 which will unify our projects and several exiting new modules, we see 2018 as being a great year to be a DCS World fan!


2017
Quote

-DCS: Normandy 1944 [made with 0 care for historical accuracy, together with its WWII assets]
-New aircraft damage model systems.
-Unpaved airfields. [don't know if this has been implemented]


2016
Quote

-wrap up the L-39 Albatros with the addition of the L-39ZA version
-finish the Spitfire IX in mid-2016
-followed by the P-47D at the end of the year. [now perhaps/maybe scheduled for late 2019, full 3 years off the mark]
-We will also continue to fine-tune the P-51D, Fw 190 and Bf 109. [still hasn't been done, with the cooling being what it is]
-a new 3D external model for the MiG-29
-incorporation of the Professional Fight Models (PFM) to both the Su-33 and MiG-29. [Su-33 PFM released december 2017, MiG-29 PFM still WIP]
-DCS: NEVADA Test and Training Range map is being enhanced with the addition of:

Tonopah Air Force Base
New casino/hotels in the Las Vegas strip
A number of airfields and landing strips in the central (detailed) portion of the map
The National Training Center (NTC)
Improved grass and ground clutter
Plus a host of minor improvements
- DCS: Strait of Hormuz [launched in 2018]
-1944 Northern France [morphed into Normandy 1944, launched in 2017]
- We see 2016 as a big year for aircraft carrier operations as we plan to release both Nimitz-class aircraft carrier and Kuznetsov-class aircraft carrier modules.


So yeah, I hate to be pessimistic here, but the 2019 roadmap will probably happen in 2021, with it being completely broken for years to come.

VEAO ? not DCS then.

I read ages ago about it and thought it an odd idea - but since there is a Bf109 and Merlin in DCS it seemed doable.

there are now many HA-1112 flying - should not have been difficult to find info about it.

Bit the bullet and tried out DCS after over a year hiatus and been flying BMS exclusively.
Bought NTTR and the F18 and have to admit it is a fun fighter to fly and NTTR looks great.
Not feature complete but what is there makes it a capable fighter for sure and if they keep the commitments it's going to be a blast.

HA-1112? That still sounds like an odd idea, to me. But, hey, I'd rather put that up against my Spitfire than that #%&*$# 109K.
