"DCS: Strait of Hormuz Map
In parallel with updating the Caucasus map, our map teams have been busy with the DCS: Strait of Hormuz Map. The team is making great progress with completing all of the airfields, adding additional details to the towns and cities, and refining the terrain details. Combined with the new lighting and rendering system, we are increasingly happy with the look and feel of this map. We continue to strive to make this map a close approximation of this region as possible.

Here are three images of the current state of this map."

Hi Folks,

Man - this isn't your Dad's DCS World - holy smokes...

I need a new rig - just noticed the new 21:9's are now 38" of glorious pixel real estate...

:wink:

Regards,
Scott

Is that in-game footage? Wow... With their graphic engine, the guys at DCS could take hold of the civil flight sim market if they only chose to do so, but apparently that won't happen...

They "divert" sometimes Murmur :-)

The UH-1H, the Mi-8 and the upcoming Yak-52 can all be used in a "Civil" environment... And there's even some sort of GNS 430 to go with it...

It's not what I would love to see / have, but still...

Ha, just the Nevada test strips terrain pack is 36GB. Anyway I'd advise anyone who already has DCS to download the 2.x alpha and test it out.
