DCS World 2 Alpha Install size?

How big is the current 'installed' DCS world 2 open alpha (without modules)?

 

Mine currently weighs in at 58.9GB. I have A10C, Mirage, Hawk, L-39, Huey, Gazelle and Su-27.

 

The download folder is empty. Just curious as the recommended spec says 30GB and I am surprised if my limited selection of modules is really taking up 28GB.

 

I only have 2 mods (totalling 168MB) so they are not rhe culprits.

 

:helpsmilie:

 

Edit: Just ran treesize and found the culprit - NTTR takes up a whopping 33GB! Time to get a second SSD given Hormuz and Europe are out in '2 weeks'!

I wouldn't expect the size to get smaller - actually opposite. The "terrains" folder with Caucasus (1.5) is ~10GB, Nevada (2.0) is ~33GB. Considering that Caucasus gets upgraded, Normandy released a single 2.5 install with 3 maps roughly could be expected to be about ~150 GB.

Still, probably not a big issue - unless you want to run DCS from SSD.

F/A-18, F-16, F-14, M-2000C, A-10C, AV-8B, AJS-37 Viggen, F-5E-3, F-86F, MiG-21bis, MiG-15bis, L-39 Albatros, C-101 Aviojet, P-51D, Spitfire LF Mk. IX, Bf 109 4-K, UH-1H, Mi-8, Ka-50, NTTR, Normandy, Persian Gulf... and not enough time to fully enjoy it all

Shouldn't be quite that big. ~25-30GB per map with T4/T5 mesh, plus another 15-20GB for everything else. Maybe 100-110GB total, at least until more maps or more higher-resolution terrain shows up.
