  1. Hi everyone, Something I've never been satisfied with is how DCS names units in the unit listing. It often doesn't use full names, or specific variants, won't include things like NATO reporting names, or even occasionally gets the name wrong. 2.7 did change things a lot, and it largely made things a bit more consistent, but for me it still missed a few things and in some cases it changed for the worse IMO. What I was in the process of doing, is editing the default .lua files in the database folder of DCS and changing the display names I was then going to bundle them into a folder for a mod, and see what people thought of it. Unfortunately in 2.7, all of those files got hidden and so I'm now unable to do that. At the moment I've only done the ground and naval units, and for English localisation. I'm pretty much okay with the aircraft as they are, and if I were to make any changes they'd be more minor. The only other one I was going to do is the weapons so it's a bit tidier and more consistent, but I'm going to gauge that on this thread. Another thing I might do is propose a change to the sub categories too, but I'll leave that to a new thread. I still might tinker around with it, so watch this space for edits, what I currently have in mind is rearranging NATO reporting names and native names for ships, as well as putting the approximate year the ship is a representation of. Anything I've marked with a square bracket and a number is in the spoiler below. I know this is a very nitpicky, rivet-counter-esque request, but let me know what your thoughts on it are, do you like what I've done and prefer it? Do you prefer the current system? Do you prefer the old system? Is there anything you'd do differently? And of course, if you notice any mistakes, please let me know and I'll make an edit.

  2. Since we now have a very beautiful and great sounding P Hind and the old unit is the same helicopter I would've liked it to sound the same. It have always been generic and boring and unauthentic, and there is no reason why you shouldn't update it. Hope ED sees this Also for some reason it's startup sequence audi is very broken atm, cuts off when engines are starting
  3. Dear Eagle Dynamics, is it pland, that FARPS, TENTS, TRUCKS, TANKS, ... get new skins for presets in the DCS-Editor? As a Missionplaner an Missionmaker i miss following TENT-SKINS: - Desert camo - Desert camo with medic cross - Desert camo with numbers (01, 02, 03, 04, ...) - Green camo with medic cross - Green camo with numbers (01, 02, 03, 04, ...) - White with Medic cross - White with blue UN - White with numbers (01, 02, 03, 04, ...) - Tents for Insurgents Different Tents with different sizes. TENTS as Units not as Building to get it in a group for better handling with Triggers. I miss wounded and civil Units at all. You have no civil units to embarc or for Missions like "Avoid civil victims" I miss single Helipads with medic cross. I miss TRUCKS and TANKS with white color and blue UN signs. I miss Medic-Trucks at all. I miss JATAC-Infantery-Unit with Laser, Smoke and IR. I know you can get this with mods, but this has to be in DCS without mods, i think. If you want to make good and realistic HELI-Missions this is absolutly necessary. Cause than yo can say: "Embarc troop from Marker and bring it to Farp XXX to the Tent number 01" Or yo can say:" Embarc the wounded and bring them to the Medic-Tent. Smoke as marker is unrealistic big an Flags ar not good to see. I know, making skins for PLANES, HELICOPTERS, TANKS, ... is hard work and costs a while, but I think, making skins for TENTS and bring them in DCS (basic) without mod is a work of 20 Hours or less. I know this is primarily for Heli Pilots/Player who want to make realistic Missions but it is worth it. So is this planed? How long will it take? If not, Why? Thank you.
  4. Hi everyone, At the moment there's a restriction in the editor that ensures that non-amphibious ground units can only be placed on the ground - this makes a lot of sense but it does cause a couple of issues: Firstly, on the Channel Map, there's a fortification on the coast near Ambleteuse (Fort Mahon/Fort d'Ambleteuse: 50°48'19"N, 001°36'02"E), which I would like to place things like artillery on (there's enough space for it). However, DCS treats most of the area the fort occupies as water, which means you can't place any non-amphibious units there, despite the fact that amphibious vehicles (which this restriction doesn't apply to) spawn as expected with no issues. It's the same when placing units on static objects (such as the oil and gas platforms), you can only place amphibious units onto them, even though they'll spawn where they should - which means you can't really set up something like a WW2 sea fort (using the oil rig/gas platform as a stand-in). And it's the same situation with non-aircraft carrying ships, you can't place anything that isn't a linked static object or amphibious onto them. Unfortunately though, this time around amphibious vehicles don't spawn as expected, they spawn where you placed them, but in the water and not up on deck, however, if you take an amphibious unit, place it on an oil rig or a gas platform, you can jump it over to a ship (that can be moving), and it will work (mostly) with a few issues that I'll detail below but are not the focus of this thread. Personally, I'd prefer to have the feature turned off (or be made optional), and place the responsibility solely with whoever is making the mission to place units sensibly. As an addendum, this feature might also be useful for placing client/player aircraft exactly as desired on board ships, see this post for more details. M113_Tarawa_Jump.trk
  5. There are so many cool animated units out there in DCSW, would be nice to have access to those animations. Maybe even via triggers. Examples of use: - Place a tank with opened upper hatch, to drop a tv guided Mav right in there, etc. - Build scene with units in different animation sates. Is it possible via lua scripts?
