    Default DCS World interview with Matt Wagner - interesting news...

    Dynamic campaigns, online and offline, dedicated servers, full world map, growing aircraft library...sounds like a winner.

    Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to he was sane and had to.

    don't forget they planned to move to vulkan API

    Thanks!

    I don’t know what that means...if it makes it live long and prosper then I am happy.

    yes right, vulkan is a better API to control the graphic. Right now, if I'm not wrong, all of our flight sims are using opengl (x-plane) or directx11 (dcs, box, clod, etc.) directx12 is only for windows 10

    here is one of the video found for compare, just look at directx11 vs vulkan how better vulkan is

    Something that allows for all of the cores to be used has got to be a good thing. Why require an i5 and only use one core? Never understood that. Should hopefully make a nice performance boost for VR.

    Think I’ve got 7. Seems silly.
