Wow, those trees sure adds a lot to the terrain feel! Now if only they can stretch it out more towards the horizon.... smile
Posted By: malibu43

Re: DCS 2.5 - 02/02/18 06:11 PM

I have the trees set to 100% on my install and I don't notice where they stop at all. In fact, I can't even see where the trees end in my screenshots above. And with trees set to 100%, my laptop still runs the sim just fine.

Man, this new version sure does look nice! It will be nice if they follow through with some content changes as well. But for now, it's very pretty to fly around in!

Re: DCS 2.5 - 02/02/18 06:38 PM

Is that tree density at 100%? Is there maybe like a draw distance slider?

It may not be noticeable in your laptop or when playing when there are other things to do or catch your eye but I can see it on the screenshots.... but then again, I'm looking for that end-of-treeline smile

Re: DCS 2.5 - 02/04/18 05:12 PM

I am curious, did you guys update your already installed version of DCS or did you do a fresh install of 2.5? I am waiting a while to see how everything shakes out. Great pics by the way.


Edit: Which one do you update? The 1.5... or the 2.0... ?

Re: DCS 2.5 - 02/05/18 10:05 PM

Ok, I updated to 2.5... . It really looks good in game and my frame rates are decent for my old system, but the ram use is ridiculous. I am posting a pic from Process Lasso which I use while running most of my CFSs. DCS 2.5 is using every bit of my 16 GBs of ram jawdrop in a mission I made a longtime ago with like either 14 or 16 WWII fighters in a big scrap. There is a little bit of Stutter here and there, I am assuming because the Ram is bottle necked. My Cpu is running like 40% of max. I am assuming they have a bad Memory leak. The graphics look pretty good to me, but when I pause for a picture, it looks perfect in game, but the picture comes out with some very small jaggies if you look close. I think I am going to try Reshade like I had in 1.5 plus 2 or 4 times Sparse Grid Super Sampling and see what happens. Here are some pics from the Aerial Scrap Mission on the Caucasus Map. Enjoy, hopefully the next ones will be better. salute

Great shots. Mine doesn't look quite that good, but it's good. I like the aluminum finish effect, now. It always looked more greyish than metalic. My F-86 looks terrific. Getting some stutering, though, when the guns fire. Guess I need to turn something down.

Re: DCS 2.5 - 03/04/18 02:15 AM

Well I finally have spent a little more time in DCS 2.5. It really looks stunning. I sure hope they work at optimizing it better because stutters are a problem.
It is a shame because I was going to build a new rig, but with all the CPU compromises and the GPU shortage and high prices, along with Ram high prices,
I really can't afford to build now. Well, I am thankful for my present rig and I will just have to wait it out. Here are a few pics from a recent excursion of P51s
and Spits vs Fw190s and Bf109s. Enjoy.

Re: DCS 2.5 - 03/04/18 06:05 AM

Blade_Meister @ have you ssd ?


I got some stutters first in my system: I5 8500 6core 4ghz / 16gb DDR4 3000mhz / 1070 8 Gb

Fisrt i have dcs in my System / games SSD drive = stutters

Now i have dcs in its own SSD = no more stutters , also setting preload to MIN or least 1/3 from max take those away.

There is still bad memory leak , ED is fixing it. Preload is bugged with it. And its gets crazy in MP biggrin


But sure dcs, runs great fps .

My 1060 with same system got 100-120fps in big missions , now i have 1070 and get 120-180fps in big missions biggrin


My settings: Ultra vis range, textures high , water high, cicilian traffic low, shadows low / flat terrain shadows / tree slider max / grass 1000 / AF4 / 2xmsaa in monitor use, no msaa in VR use PD 1.4 for now.

Haukka81, no SSD here, old school HDD. thanks for your suggestions but I have an old AMD system with a GTX770 4GB. I think when ED optimizes and fixes the memory leak , then DCS will work better for me.
Here are a few more I took the other night.

Re: DCS 2.5 - 03/06/18 02:40 AM

Great pictures, Blade. Mine doesn't really look all that differently from that at high altitude. That's where I am most of the time, anyway. I knocked it back to Medium. Then I put the Cockpit at 1024. Gotta have the cockpit looking good. Looks fine and runs a whole lot better, now. But I have a 4 year old I7 processor with 2.4 GH and 8 GB of RAMM. 2GB Nvidia card. So, even after they fix that memory leak I'm most likely not gonna be able to max this out.

Been working on my A2A skills in the F-15C using the instant action mission. Today I was able to clear the sky of all hostile fighters, but lost an engine in the process. Still managed to limp back for a landing.

Also - I have to admit, I'm using labels for dogfighting. Just too hard to see the bad guys otherwise...

AFAIK you can control the bort numbers as decals in the liveries description.lua but roundels and other details are part of the base skin.
That's what I did for my Swedish Airforce P-51 Mustangs.
(that file will also let you control what countries the skin can be used with)

Posted By: Arthonon

Re: DCS 2.5 - 05/21/18 08:04 PM

I don't know if the flight model changed, but in the version I had, I was able to fly it around pretty well, even landing on buildings (including the airfield tower) and flying under bridges. The problem I had was I got used to hiding behind trees and popping up to strike, and in the version I had, the trees had no affect on the AI. That meant if I were hiding behind the trees, I couldn't see anything, but AI enemy units could see me just fine, and their weapons passed right through the trees and hit me, so it was a little frustrating. I had been flying Gunship!, and it has collidable trees that would block weapons, and had gotten used to that and I had a hard time adapting to Black Shark.
Posted By: - Ice

Re: DCS 2.5 - 05/21/18 08:51 PM

Ah yes, Gunship! Is that the one where some "forests" were a box of trees you can fly into to hide? smile I loved that game as I had better depth perception compared to EECH so I could fly lower and faster!
Posted By: Arthonon

Re: DCS 2.5 - 05/21/18 09:55 PM

They were bunches of trees, and I think treated as a single object, but I thought that was fine because in reality, any two trees closer together than the width of the chopper was basically a single obstacle, and I thought they did a pretty good job of breaking them up, so you had dense areas with gaps in between, and they seemed fairly naturally shaped (i.e., not rectangular). Its biggest issue was it was billed as being a Longbow sim but it lacked the high-end features. I tried to think of it as more of an AH-64A simulator, and in that I thought it wasn't bad. It even supported multiplayer in the same helo, so you could have a human team of pilot and CP/G in the same bird.

Here's an old video I made of it:

Re: DCS 2.5 - 05/21/18 10:18 PM

Yep! That's the one! I used to practice going inside those clumps of trees smile Not very successful! But the trees blocked LOS and also blocked enemy missiles which was good! Being able to weave between tree clumps was so cool after EECH's block forests biggrin

Hornet Skins
For the Early Access release of the Hornet, we plan to have more skins available than any previous module at the time of initial release. Our first priority is on actual operators of the F/A-18C, and then we will focus on operators of F/A-18A operators and those that were updated.

Yup, keep in might they included other nations too.

SkateZilla also uploaded several pro-quality "fictional" skins based on Tomcat squadrons to the ED File share site.

Wow these are some beautiful shots fellas. I've been a long time away from DCS stuff. Do the hornets come with any campaign and are carriers in the future? Sorry if its a silly question but I've not played DCS in a long time and on top of that ED's way of doing things I find confusing.

Are these part of ED's release or are these Skate's fictional skins?

If DCS is to be a screenshot generator, might as well get the most out of it! On an unrelated note, anyone know how far along the Tomcat module is?
Posted By: Coot

Re: DCS 2.5 - 06/06/18 02:15 AM

I was just checking on the modules on Steam and they are pricey! Maybe one day in the future when they are on sale I could get a couple. Everything, planes and maps are 50-80 dollars a piece! I think what I would want the most are the Nevada map, F-5E Tiger and the Hornet. The Tomcat is defitately a must too whenever that comes out but man they need to start making some meaningful campaigns and carrier ops or something else to get away from the old Crimea map. Do they have any intentions on revamping campaigns, maybe making them more dynamic? It would be cool to see some intrepid third party group come out with a module that does one thing, changes the interface and injects some old school combat sim personality with interactive planning rooms/briefing/debriefing screens. Maybe make some sort of XCOM-like pilot generator with roster management to breath some fun into the campaign scenarios. Not sure how that would work but it would be nice.

DCS has elements that make it a great screenshot platform. I would like to have the ability to manipulate aircraft more in the mission editor, but still learning smile

And Bisher, regarding your AI buddy suddenly landing, the AI is lazy, and I've found once it's out of tasks, it'll pack it in and go home. In this case, it hit it's waypoint, so that's all she wrote.

Just a matter of preference, really, I think. Like your last pic, again with no fuel tanks. Just looks wrong. I think of fighter aircraft like a mean machine, a beast with sharp teeth and fangs. A clean aircraft, with nary a fuel bag, looks like an old granny who forgot to put her dentures in biggrin

This shot by piper, clean but with a fuel bag (and a Sidey), looks better. It looks like it's going home after a good mission, hence the empty pylons, but needed some extra fuel and that's why it has a centerline fuel bag. A totally clean fighter looks like "I'm just doing touch-and-goes and practicing my traffic pattern approaches"

Glad you agree with me! smile The screenshot angles/camera work is awesome though. Like I said, you have a great eye for these things!

I've also realized that while I don't like clean aircraft, one with empty pylons looks okay. I guess it just hints at the fighter being RTB after a successful mission.

We were on the eighth hole when I looked up and there were two CF 18s flying at tree top level. They made three passes at low altitude and it was amazing to watch. I believe the Canadians and Germans were conducting training exercises. CFB Shilo at the time had a German Army Training Establishment ('74 to 2000ish) and military land bordered the golf course

Nice shots bisher. I especially like the carrier takeoff and landing shots. There must have been some anxiety knowing you were on a third landing attempt. I probably would have missed them all and would have needed a helicopter ride back to the ship.

Flying the Huey. I like this pic as I have seen the underside of the Bell 204, from this altitude, quite a bit while I worked for an oil exploration company. The 204 would roll out tv antenna wire from a large spool that sat by the opening of the side door. I was on the ground splicing the wire together.

I was able to set the A4 up today in a JSGME install so that I can remove it easily for future updates. I generated a quick mission today and was sort of amazed at what the generator made. I only got one good pic of the A4, but I snapped a few of the Mig29s in the mission. I also threw in 2 from a WWII mission I flew.
I sure hate turning the graphics down but with my old rig I have to. The only way I get pretty good pics anymore is to turn the graphics back up and run the mission at around 20FPS and take pics, LOL. I think they still come out pretty good though. Enjoy! yep

I have just never tried it. In the QMG I found that when I used the advance button and opened it in the full mission editor that it was quite complex. It had ground units, A10s, Helos, F16s, A4s(player + wing man), Mig29s and SU25s. I made my adjustments for skins and load outs and quite frankly could have just used this as a quick template to make whatever I wanted. I am not that familiar with creating complete missions from scratch in the FME and honestly don't have time so this might be a good way for me to create missions and be able to fly quickly. I just found it interesting that after all of these years that I had never really tried this and that I had mostly only flew canned missions or Campaigns. I guess that was amazing to me, but is probably not to most. LOL! Glad you liked the pics. thumbsup

In the QMG there is an "advanced edit" button that will open it directly into the FME. You can then make any FME adjustments you want and you can "Save As" and them go fly it through missions if you do not want to fly it directly from the FME. To me, that is a pretty good set up. I wish IL2 The Great Battle Series had this sort of QMG.

hahaha You know, I went into the FME to look at the available skins for the A4, as I had read there are a lot, and I noticed there was no load out. hahaha So I changed this obviously while I was there. I wonder how many people find this out and never go in the FME to add a loadout thinking it is just a bug in the QMG? duh

Really though, graphics anomolies aside, the detail on those ships is impressive. The Harrier really tempts me. I'm just not sure that I want another complex airplane, because I hardly fly the A-10 anymore. I sure like it , though. It interests me more than the F-18, actually.

Pooch, it is nice but still suffers from a lot of bugs and unfinished and incomplete features as everything in DCS, which may be fixed very slowly or never at all... The most frustrating at the moment is the CCRP ASL (steering line): it's wonky, unrealistic, sways all over the place and useless. They tried fixing it in the last update but failed.

But if the Harrier module is on sale for 1/2 price then it's worth the buy (this is what I did), but otherwise an unfinished product with bugs is not worth the full price. That's why I haven't got the Hornet I guess.

Vertical landings on the LHA are nice (and stressful)... smile

And it's not really complex at all! I think it's easier and less complex than the A-10C!

As well, I've come to understand how vertical pics are not downsized as much as those presented in the horizontal. Makes sense

Hello SilverStang

I do not recall what exactly I was doing in that shot

If it was a real mig 19 you mean theOden? Yes the real Mig 19 was perhaps not a blast to fly, seems to have been a bit of a nasty aircraft.

Plus I exagerated a bit, it can be tiring and confusing getting the aircraft into the air wink

Re: DCS 2.5 - 03/21/19 11:38 AM

I keep forgetting to put spoilers and antiskid switch to off for carrier landings... after having it in spoiler only for cat shot...

Spoiler only for taxi
Spoiler only for cat shot
Off for carrier trap
Spoiler and antiskid (both) for runway takeoff
Spoiler and antiskid (both) for runway landing

Is this correct?
Posted By: Pooch

Re: DCS 2.5 - 03/21/19 02:46 PM

Why are spoilers open for a cat shot when you need every bit of speed you can get? They don't supply lift, as far as I know. They just slow you down, don't they? Jaw dropping detail, though. One of the best looking flight simulators, ever.
Posted By: mdwa

Re: DCS 2.5 - 03/21/19 03:00 PM

Spoilers are only up at idle, as soon as you move throttle they drop.

Don't know why but it's in NATOPS .

(This is different to maneouvre flaps...

and again different to DLC -direct lift control - which uses just the inboard spoilers on aproach for fine flight path adjustment up and down just like the Lockheed L-1011 TriStar)

Also spoilers aid a lot with taxiing, not having to use as much wheelbrake..

Re: DCS 2.5 - 03/21/19 11:19 PM

Yes here I'm opening and closing throttle

how does it run now ? i heard of performances issues when they made the dcs world packages.
fps and resolution please.
Posted By: bisher

Re: DCS 2.5 - 06/01/19 06:25 AM

thanks Haukka I appreciate that

As for fps, currently I average 44 fps(1920X1080) en-route to target, dropping to 38 fps over target and release of ordnance, flying a standard mission. A few pauses and micro stutters along the way.
