I really hope that, apart from the natural technological advance that EDGE represents, one of it's benefits can be making it not so har to glimpse other aircraft as it presently is in DCS World.

 

Great shots

 

Really looking fwd for it.

DCS: STRAITS OF HORMUZ MAP COMING IN WINTER 2014

 
 
DUXFORD, UK, September 11th, 2014 – DCS: Strait of Hormuz map coming in winter 2014.
 
The Fighter Collection and Eagle Dynamics are pleased to announce that DCS: Strait of Hormuz map will be coming to DCS World in the winter of 2014. This will be the first, new combat theatre maps for DCS World 2!
 
The DCS: Strait of Hormuz map is the strategic choke point between the oil-rich Persian Gulf and the rest of the world. Flanked by Iran to the North and western-supported UAE and Oman to the south, this has been one of the world’s most potentially dangerous flash points for decades. The region also includes the vast Arabian Sea that is well-suited to combat aircraft carrier operations. Be it from land bases in Iran, UAE and Oman, or from the deck of an aircraft carrier, the DCS: Strait of Hormuz map will offer a wide array combat mission scenarios to prove your metal.
 
Key Features of the DCS: Strait of Hormuz Map:
 
390 x 390 km highly detailed map area that centers on the Strait of Hormuz.
As part of DCS World 2, it will support highly detailed terrain, textures, and buildings. 
Numerous, accurately rendered airbases in Iran, the UAE and Oman.
Detailed cities such as Dubai and Bandar Abbas with unique buildings.
“Strong Hold” islands such as Abu Musa and Greater Tunb.
Iran, the UAE and Oman will be added to the list of DCS World nations.
 
DCS: Strait of Hormuz map will be released as a separate module that will be available for sale from the DCS e-shop in the winter of 2014.
 
Please note that all included images are work in progress images from our land viewer tool and not within DCS World 2.

NTTR integration into DCS: World 2

Some very early work-in-progress images of the Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR) map within DCS World 2. Much tuning and bug squashing to do, but we thought you guys might like to see a preliminary look.

I'm curious if i'll see the map for free?  I purchased the pre-purchased the A10 so i am entitled to it...however i converted over to the Steam version of DCS when it became available, it's currently running around 3-4 weeks behind the DCS releases with no ability to pre-purchase.

New DCS Maps

 

Both the Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR) and Strait of Hormuz maps are making great progress. In fact, the NTTR map has been successfully integrated into DCS World 2 and is now undergoing extensive work to iron out issues. We hope to release the NTTR map in late December. This will be a free map to those that purchased the DCS: A-10C Warthog while it was in beta.

Nevada NTTR has expanded from 390 x 390 Km to 600x600 km
 

 

We often get the question of how big the NTTR map is and the area covered. We hope this image from the mission editor will help.

Update from Wags.......

 

http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?p=2229230#post2229230

 

Dear all,

 

We understand that many of you are anxious about the new NTTR map (and other future maps), so I wanted to give you a little update.

 

As mentioned in a previous newsletter, we have imported the NTTR map into DCS World 2 and have begun addressing several blocking items. One of the biggest is getting the colors and shadows correct. Although the colors and shadows may have looked good in the terrainviewer tool, the way light and shadows are done in DCS World 2 is quite different. As such, we've been having to do a lot of work to get these to look right.

 

Once this effort is done, I hope to release some new images or videos.

 

Other issues we are working on for the map include:

 

- Mission Editor presentation and overlays

- Water rendering

- Airbase lights

- Building shadows

- Object LODs

 

These adjustments are needed now that the map is in DCS.
