"I just want the planes from DCS, in the world of MS-FS, with the campaigns for Falcon 4. Is that so much to ask ?"
Dean Crawford Books :
Give it time. The MSFS SDK is woefully inadequate at the moment, but from the inside I can tell you that it has the potential to actually achieve all of those aims. I don't think it will ever have the high-fidelity weapons of DCS, but weapons are indeed possible, the mission structure in MSFS is sufficiently detailed that campaigns would work quite well I think, and the sim can support aircraft as beautiful as those in DCS World. It's just going to take some time to get there.
It's very hard to say really, as MSFS is of course not a combat-orientated game, but the mission builder is very versatile and so should be able to cater for much of what you describe. Damage models would be dependent on model builders themselves rather than any in-sim module I think, but again, with WASM used to access SimConnect those with a will could probably do remarkable things. Going back to your original comment though, is that too much to ask? It's actually quite a lot when it comes to building modules and coding these things. I too would like to see it happen, but it'll be a while before it does I'm certain.
My Military Flight Videos : FSCAI justifies the presence of Warbirds in FS !... Simple as that. Gives'em back their lost identity : To fly as Warbirds in a Military Operations Simulated environment and do happily what they know & do best... Chris,
Well, I would say not to hold your breath. The developers I have talked to have said that it seems MS is not very open to any militarization of their new flight sim. Personally, I am not against their new flight sim....but I'm not bothered by it so much either, since P3D seems to be coming along quite well for what I am trying to achieve.
