DCS Summer 2019 Bonus Sale!

Dear pilots!

Starting at 0900 GMT on 18 July 2019 and lasting until 0900 GMT on 1 August 2019, we will have our Summer 2019 bonus point sale! During this period, you can use bonus points to purchase up to 50% of the price on all Eagle Dynamics modules released. For example: if a product is priced at USD 29.99 and you have enough bonus points then you can use them for up to a maximum value of USD 14.99, the remainder would need to be paid for as usual. (Heatblur Simulations and Magnitude 3 LLC are not participating in the sale).

Existing Bonus points will expire on 1 June 2020. Bonus points cannot be exchanged for ED Miles or cash.

On 1 August 2019 at 0900, we will launch the new ED Miles rewards system!

ED Miles are similar in many ways to airline miles and can be earned/awarded and used as follows:
Regardless if a product has just been released, is already on sale or in pre-purchase, you will always earn ED Miles on the price you paid for the purchase. For each purchase, you will earn 10% of the Purchase Price in ED Miles. As an example: if you purchase something for USD 29.99 you will be awarded 2990 ED Miles worth USD 2.99 on the DCS World e-Shop.
You can use ED Miles to purchase any product participating in the program, regardless if they are just released, already on sale, or as a pre-purchase!
There is no limit on the number of ED Miles you can use for a purchase. If you have enough ED Miles, you can even pay for an entire product just using ED Miles.
ED Miles earned are valid for three calendar years from the time of your last DCS World e-Shop purchase.
Note that ED Miles cannot be redeemed for cash or any other conversion, and a list of 3rd parties participating in the program will be provided at launch.
The Eagle Dynamics Team

Technical Help / I ordered SSD for my C Drive for Win10
« on: July 17, 2019, 12:33:50 am »
Pioneer 3D NAND Internal SSD (512 GB)
High-quality TLC flash , combined with industry-leading Phison S11 controller.
Deliver high transfer speed and greater performance with 3D NAND flash.
The shock-proof, durable, and extremely reliable SSD represents the absolute bargain in the field.
Read Speed (MAX): 550 MB/s; Write Speed (MAX): 490 MB/s
Contents: 2.5" SATA III SSD (6Gb/s) & User Manual (No Cables, Screws, and Brackets).

I have extra cable, brackets, screws, and more from all of my computer hardware I have in boxes.

I also have software to clone and copy software.

I ordered it from for $49.00  (ordered yesterday) Right now my Win10 is very slow to load up because of al the BS I have on my hard drive.
I know Win10 loads extremely fast with any drive if you don't have my programs. But the SSD will make it a pleasure to open programs up again.
I searched Newegg and Amazon, and sent me a bunch of coupons (decent sale again) 6 hours after I placed my order with Amazon, but I still got a great deal.

my DCS and IL-2 Box are on a separate SSD.

then I have a 1 TB hard drive, plus a portable external 4 TB USB backup storage, but that is for backing up all of our computers.

DCS Series Flight Sims / Precision weapon coordinates entry info

Precision weapon coordinates entry info


I found it to look like a good set of tools for coord and entry of info for weapons and waypoints.

1)DCS, I don't have Normandy map, etc.
2)IL-2 Sturm BOK, I never got Kuban.

no big deal?
or grab it...

I have to keep money set aside for BS3 (BS2 upgrade) and MAC (FC4=FC3 upgrade). I figure the upgrades might be $30.00 each ?

Ideas and thoughts?

« on: June 22, 2019, 10:38:00 pm »
Is the AKA single pilots and groups flying WWII maps and aircraft? While enjoyable,, I want to know if it is worth investing in with my limited budget?
are we using it together? Will We have group activity?

Time is limited, and most people are with IL-2 BOX.

DCS Series Flight Sims / JTAC MGRS , using references, FA-18C etc
« on: June 18, 2019, 06:12:48 am »

Military Grid Reference System

is it implemented fully yet, or do we still use the reference converters?

What info I gathered to use:

Enter Coords for weapons:
In PP setup you can enter DDMMSS.SS. That's roughly 30cm x 30cm.

Originally Posted by IceFire

Use the lat/lon at the bottom of the conversion. I.E. 50° 00' 29.52" N 112° 36' 51.84" W
On the UFC. N500029 -Enter 52- Enter LON W1123651- Enter 84 - Enter

You cannot convert that coordinates to anything more precise, similar how you cannot upsample an image.

You can do two things:
1. In ME, change to MGRS (press LALT + Y until you reach that format) and then use coordinates conversion website:


2. In ME, change to DDMM.MMM (press LALT + Y until you reach that format) and then use coordinates conversion website: , or just take 0.MMM x 60 = SS.SS you need in F18

Additionally, you need to convert altitudes from feet to meters, due bug in F-18.
input waypoints in MGRS
find the MGRS using the F10 map (use left alt+y to change the coord format in the map
