Uhm Why do you think they need another engine?
All they need to do is reduce/simplify the rules that define the game and augment automation…
Think Flaming Cliffs 2 level planes.

Perhaps “engine” was a poor choice of words on my part, “branches” may be better. The announcement says that:

“Modern Air Combat will not be a DCS World product

In other words, it won’t be a DCS module and will likely require a separate executable. Initially, yes it will be as easy as stripping down the DCS engine and adding a few bells and whistles, but as soon as you add a feature to one, they start diverging. Of course you’ll try to keep them as similar as possible, but eventually they grow apart until you’re left with two separate (though related) executables/programs/branches/engines to maintain.

16 posts were split to a new topic: Will DCS Black Shark 3 be required to continue using the KA-50 in DCS

I like the MAC logo. Is that new? Nice font and clean design.

This makes me dream about a Battle of Britain scenario, in DCS.
Flyable Spifire Mk. I, Hurricane Mk. I and 109 Emil.
AI He-111, Stukas, Do-17 and Ju-88…
Not asking for much, am I…?

In the recent PCPilot interview with @wagmatt he mentions The Channel Map.

“This will include southeastern England, portions of the low countries and northeastern France.”
