    Strait of Hormuz

    ***Update***
    "***Update***"DCS: Strait of Hormuz Map
    In parallel with updating the Caucasus map, our map teams have been busy with the DCS: Strait of Hormuz Map. The team is making great progress with completing all of the airfields, adding additional details to the towns and cities, and refining the terrain details. Combined with the new lighting and rendering system, we are increasingly happy with the look and feel of this map. We continue to strive to make this map a close approximation of this region as possible.

    Here are three images of the current state of this map."

    That is looking awesome!

    I was considering getting Combat Air Patrol 2 a while back, and I think it was the DCS announcement of the Strait of Hormuz, and the Harrier, which stopped me.

    I also have too many simulators already, or I probably would have picked it up just to try it out.

    **Wags Statement Concerning Name Change**

    "The change in name is for two primary reasons:

    1- Gives us flexabilty to expand the map later
    2- A much more recognizable name of the region

    When the map is made available for sale, it will be abundantly clear of the exact area covered by the map.

    Thanks"

    If you mean DCS bonuses, usually they do not apply to prepurchased or discounted items.

    Use of bonuses is very specific. For example, they can only be used for up to a maximum of 30% of the purchase price of the item you've selected. Also, if the item has bonus dollars associated with it, you don't get them if you use bonus dollars to purchase. As previously mentioned, you can not use bonus dollars on discounted items! The last thing I've noticed, if you don't meet the criteria to use bonus dollars, you will not get a selection that allows you to use them. That's my story and I'm sticking to it....

    Oh yes, I am aware of that. I plan to hold off on buying until release as my bonus dollars will give me a significantly greater discount than if I pre-purchase. I do like how they do the bonus program. It's given me plenty of incentive to buy various modules.

    ***mini update ***

    Super Tankers for Persian Gulf Map

    An important aspect of the Persian Gulf is its traffic of super tankers coming to and from. For the new Persian Gulf Map, we have added this new static object that is built into the map. These are in addition to cargo ships and various types of pleasure craft. Just like cars, truck, buses, and trains for the ground, we also want to create a more “lived in” look for the sea parts of the map.


    Also in today’s images, we see an example of one of the highly-factious skins; in this case, Israel. We fully realize this is not a realistic skin, but we also have many customers from various countries that do not operate the Hornet, but still wish to fly their Hornets in their countries liveries.

    You do get the bonus amount for pre-purchase. I have pre-purchased the Hornet and Persian Gulf, and I have received the bonus amount for both. The bonus you get is also visible on the product page.

    I have pre-purchased a few things now such as the Mirage, but I have bought most of my modules on sale over the years. Quite a few of them I bought at 50-70% off.

    Cheers,
