  1. I’m always thankful for upgrade from eSim. I discovered this simulation in 2007 completely by accident. in the early 80’s a friend of mine (who was in the Canadian Forces at the time) introduced me to metal miniatures of modern AFV’s. We set up two 8x3’ tables side by side, dropped sock piles here and there and then covered it with a green blanket and stapled the blanket around the socks and bam, instant hills. We would get into all types of war games based on what he was doing for real during exercises out in the field with CF. We could only dream of something like ProPE. Thanks gents, lots of lost time enjoying your sim, I will always support your product with my wallet and gratitude. The future is bright. Big salute from me.
  2. Upgrade purchased. What exactly is ‘Thor’s Hammer? What type of artillery? Never mind. I didn’t see the text at the bottom of the #short
  3. The mouse pad is showing what appears to be new terrain items. The tree looks new to my eyes and I don’t remember seeing hay rolled up before!? I could be wrong though.
  4. To bad about these binos not being currently available. I remember asking for something similar years ago and was told to be quiet and go away. Can't wait till we get them, very handy. Thanks for the tutorial and reminder about lasing sensor equipped vehicles. Bookmarking. Update: These binos are in game, my bad. Thanks eSim.

    Windows 11

    I've been reading a little on the new OS coming from Microsoft. I did a check on my system to see if I'm TPM chip relevant ( I am) but I'm curious if the new OS has any bearing on eSim or it's customers. Does the TPM mean anything in terms of the dongles? Direct X; will the sim gain Direct X 11? Windows 11 seems to a problem for a large number of people. Sure, your computer will be more secure against malicious intent but on the flipside of that Microsoft can walk in anytime they like and have a look around.
  6. Tested the new version out with a fubar scenario. All sliders at max for detail and graphics. I averaged I'm guessing around 25 fps with all the total mayhem going on. Folder includes a few pics. FPS MAX TEST.rar
  7. All good so far. Trying to break it with overload of units and artillery but nope. Drops to maybe 50 but real good for me. I would normally with my old laptop (MSI G76 Nvidia GTX980M) have to reduce ground clutter to zero and everything else to default to get about 15fps but this time around it's smooth on my end. I will keep trying to break things but right now I'm happy with 4.259.
  8. FPS is at max with all sliders for detail and graphics up full. Thanks guys. RTX 3060 with PCI express x16 gen 3
  9. Thank's eSim for the update. The installer is the cat's meow
  10. My personal gripe with DCS is the hardware necessary to run the sim at the top alcohol funny car level. Having a rig capable of operating it glass smooth quickly scales up into the thousands. To me the ground units are flavour items that you have the ability to use but not the focus. And like the sucker I am, I will be making further investment into DCS in the future with the acquisition of the VR kit from Steam.
  11. My wish list for the next ProPE New engine with destructible terrain Directx 11/ 12 Multi core capable Full weather effects Zones for sound effects Killer clowns WWII AFV’s
  12. Merry Christmas to all 🍻 Have a great time with family and friends.
  13. I’m looking forward to this update. I always look forward to any increase in the fidelity of this sim. This one will be free, makes my day but I’d pay for it too. Esim has never hit a projected release prediction in all the years I’ve been waiting for them and Ssnake has admitted in the past that he hates making announcements stating a specific date. It’s all good to me, take your time, we’re not going anywhere. Nice videos too Grenny, I subscribed to your channel.
    I bow deeply. Thank you for this awesome map.
  14. It looks nice. I can see how gun elevation is accessed but how is turret rotation accomplished? Does the user pivot the entire unit right/ left?

    .wav files

    Just uploaded FFA to the map packages section so it will take a while to clear. It wasn't ment for public consumption, it's a WiP but it uses .wav files. I'm late to this thread. Maybe it will help, maybe not.
