Map is out

Post by (HHC/229) GunfighterSIX on Sat 27 May 2017 - 5:57

Normandy Map is out. We will be creating a server and free fight missions soon. Updating DCS Alpha and downloading the map can be a pain, come on the TS if you need help.

I am getting really poor download speeds from the torrent. 70 to 128 kbps so I may be a while, then I have to get Normandy on top of the 14 Gb update Razz

Hi Six

Can you explain how to do that in words (my very intelligent) wife can follow

I'm away and trying to get this loaded up before I get home tomorrow afternoon.

Cheers

Open a 'command' window and navigate to C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World 2 OpenAlpha\bin

Cut and paste one line into the command window, hit enter, when done do the other line....

Thanks Giz, so when the cmd is open do you type in C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World 2 OpenAlpha\bin hit enter then put in dcs_updater.exe install NORMANDY_terrain enter?

Sorry I don't usually mess with this stuff

15 G!

Just spent the last 2 days fresh installing 2 and nevada map... Twice - 66 GB!
Each time 9 hours of download time with all the modules!

As excited I am to hook into Normandy - my heart sank when it released this morning - none the less,
Download underway  Rolling Eyes ...another day watching the crawling pace of that green download bar, instead of simming!!

...and god knows what's gonna break with this update??

I think I will wait awhile... I pre-purchased, but a rush here could cause a train wreck! Looks like I will need a software course to install anyhow!

Do we have a thread for you guys to post your feedback on using Normandy for helicopter operations? If not, I'd love to read if you will post! I have to live vicariously through you guys for another week or so before I start flying again. =(

In brief, great detail, towns, ports, farms, cliffs etc ....  Electrical wires on poles running along the roads, trees, bushes all collideable giving RL hazards to any LZ.

Colours are different, tweak your display to suit, lighting effects good..

Resource heavy on high settings, stuttering etc...  Adjust settings to and just about smooth'ish.

The strength is the detail, the weakness is the raw power required to get a decent FPS.

If you have a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti you should be OK.

i7 OC 4.5 and STRIX 980Ti OC here pushing 4K returns 30-35 fps at settings that I just find acceptable.

YMMV

Will get better....

Interesting info Gizzy... I anticipated a hardware hit for this map before Xmas and decided on a new build, glad I upgraded Smile  I don't have a 1080 Ti, but hope my i7 4.2, 16Gb mem and the Strix 1060 (6Gb) GFX will cut it.  Just updating Alpha World now to 2.1... about half way through @ 1.7 MB/s;  thought I would get in while the USA is asleep Sleep

Unbelievable - 12 hours to download 2.1, then 5 hours later only halfway through the Normandy terrain files!!
Only getting 50 to 400 kB/s !!
You could drive around the entire Normandy quicker.....Guess I won't be dcs'ing this weekend.

92% @17 hours downloading update. I might just try NTTR with the new lighting before embarking on another huge download, How big is it actually (Normandy) ?
Thanks
