This week see’s the release of 2.5.6 to Open Beta. This is a large (15gb) update that contains updates for most of the terrains in DCS World with new and improved water and lighting effects. The water now looks even more realistic with depth being easier to see particularly around coastlines which we’ve already seen in the sneak peeks at the Mariana Islands terrain screenshots a few weeks ago while the environment lighting should make night flying more realistic.
Also this week Eagle Dynamics have packaged up the F/A-18C Hornet, DCS Super Carrier and Su-33 Flanker-D modules and are selling it for $99.99 here.
