Title: Syria map
Post by: 159th_Archer on July 12, 2020, 05:54:54 PM
This vid from Wgas shows how nice this map should be -from what we see here I think it's easily the best looking one so far and pretty convincing, albait a bit resource heavy.

Syria map available for pre-purchase now.

I've got it -to my eye it's the best terrain for DCS I've seen -looks 'busier' and more natural than Persian map. And things are closer together which hopefully will make mission-building easier!

DL the Syrian map tonight -very nice indeed! There are some very busy areas and -inland- some sparser areas, but they have done better than the Persian map IMO, and there are some nice 'rock' and other ground effects which look good. I like some of the roads I have seen so far and the terrain looks more natural in the hills, very happy with it.

Do you think the map is worth is Arch?

I like it mate -it is better than any previous maps in my view and has some nice touches with better water etc.

Along the coast it's at its best and is very nice with some lovely and real feeling terrain and hills, but inland does get a bit barren like the Persian map, as it is IRL. It does feel enough different to the Persian map to be worth it.

If I were advising me -I'd say get it!

Thanks Arch
