DCS World 2 - Update/Change List News

I am going to stop creating new topic for all of these update posts and just put them all here :slight_smile:

And just in time to possibly interfere with my XCom 2 play time, an update for DCS World 2 has been released.

Remember, this is still in Alpha/Beta…

Loving this patch so far!


Yay! DCS World 2.0.4 is out!

From the World Weekend Update for 18 November:

#Release of DCS World 2.0.4 with DCS: NEVADA Test and Training Map Extension Pack

Today we will be releasing the next update to DCS World 2.0, version 2.0.4. The primary addition to this update is the inclusion of the Extension Pack for the DCS: NEVADA Test and Training Range map. This extension includes 13 new airfields and several new cities and towns. One of the new airfields is Tonopah Test and Training Range airfield, that was home to the “Red Eagles” flying Russian-developed aircraft and the F-117A “Stealth Fighter” wing. This is a FREE extension pack to owners of the Nevada map. Enjoy!

Which includes a link to a nice YouTube video:

There are some sales associated with the Nevada Map and the F-5E. Both are, in my eyes, worth the price!

I’d like to know how KMUD was left out of the new airfields list…(it’s where all the cool people hang out!)

I am so stoked to fly Nevada now!
13 new airfields!! I had no idea the update would be this big.

Unfortunately, I’m throwing a party tonight so it will have to wait until tomorrow.

Can anybody show me what the F10 map looks like now?

I agree. Some of those airfields are pretty short (like a bit over 3,000’…) which should be some fun challenges for landings. I swear this sim begs for a utility turboprop that can be made part of the mission (like a Caravan or C-27J)…


Looks like a 20GB download. It’s going to be a long day of anticipation (due to my pedestrian rural internet connection)…

Time to fire up the APU on your Global and use the WiFi… (LOL…just kidding…I’m sure that isn’t much faster…and probably a hundred dollars per gig…!)

Thanks for mentioning it. I’ll just let it download now while we’re preparing dinner then!

It is pretty slow, especially the satellite internet connection (for when we are out of the CONUS area). And yes, VERY expensive.

Oh I would love to have something like that in DCS… landing in the dirt to deliver artillery ammo and/or S-8 rockets for Mi-8 would be awesome

Clearly you did not leverage enough of your internet fame on @wagmatt

As my connection gently weeps.

My legions of fans agree…


Fixed it!



I think you guys are going to have to uninstall it. The map is all brown!

Hmm… wonder if the download will be finished by the time i get home from Fantastic Beasts…
