Is this Beta or a release version bisher? This includes the new weather/cloud system? Nice pic by the way.

Ok, TY Chucky. I will wait for the release version, but I am curious to try 2.7 out.

Indeed, Chucky speaks the truth

Here are the cloud presets in the mission editor, looking forward to testing them out

Those WW2 warbirds look fantastic. If it wasn't for the fact I'm heavily invested in IL-2 stock I'd buy into DCS WW2 as well.

Honestly Chucky, DCS is fun for very short periods of time. It looks very good obviously and honestly its' FMs feel pretty good but overall it is just shallow and quite buggy or unfinished IMHO. I Love taking pics so for me it is fun every once in a while and I might use it for 2 weeks maybe, but I always get bored with it rather quickly. I am a SP person FWIW. I must say though that the Channel & Normandy Maps are very nice. Now if they just had a career or Dynamic Campaign. Maybe someday as I hear there are rumblings of the latter be developed as we speak.

I've not seen DCS in a long time but its hard to believe they've not come up with a proper campaign yet if they've not done so. It seems like they could hire a writer, a really skilled writer with a love of aviation history as well as menu artists and come up with an engaging campaign even if its just single mission based. Having something to interact with akin to the old sims would do wonders for the imagination and depth of the sim.

I agree. I like it, but the missions seem boring, although I haven't fully delved into a lot of them, but that's because the ones I tried didn't impress me. But it does look good, and it's fun to play around with for short periods. They keep adding things, like the new 2.7 (but it crashes on me a lot so far), and new aircraft and terrains, so I keep thinking that the ingredients are being added, and at some point, it will come together as a complete meal smile.

More screenshots please less talk. lol just kidding. Though I will say while DCS does have good visuals, it's audio stands out and lends as much to the immersion. Nothing like the roar of a P 47, or better yet a flight of P 47s.

I agree Coot smile

That's a great pic Bisher. This may seem like a daft question but what aircraft can you fly off the carrier? I only have the AV-8B,no FA-18 or F-14. I also have FC3.

Hmmmm, the three aircraft you listed Chucky are all carrier launchable. Of the FC3 aircraft I believe only the Su 33 can be launched

AV8B is definitely carrier capable. With a light enough load it is frigate capable smile
The free A-4 mod is very good and is carrier capable.
There is also the Kusenotzov, which a few other planes can take off from - Viggen and F-5 I've seen done (taxi to the very back of the deck and go).

Other carrier capable aircraft (meaning catapult attachment and hook) are the F/A-18C and F-14.
