Unless the bug has been fixed, that will just confuse things.  For some reason, if you pick USSR is always RED, when you look at the full screen map the friendly airfields show up as red, but the friendly ground units and production/storage areas show up as blue, and visa versa for the German side.

If the bug has not been fixed, I recommend you pick one of the others (e.g. friendly is always BLUE).

Per a request from Wayno, let's get it in writing regarding what color to use for friendly aircraft.

From the Main Menu, select Settings.
From Settings menu select Flight Interface
From Flight Interface menu, select RED USSR

Thank you.

download a program called windirstat. run it on C and look for heaviest folders and deem whether or not contents can be deleated. usually anything TEMP. uninstall what you dont use. then migrate. dont need to migrate a bunch of garbage. it will take less time obviously.
my c: hard drive is 350gb my ssd that will replace c: is 512gb. and when it formats it will loose maybe 20 gb or less. so I have a surplus of 150gb to spare after the transfer. and even then there is probably 100gb of crap I don't need on the old C: partition on the hard drive. right now my computer boots very slow, with the hard drive.

the most important issue would be to make sure the destination drive is same size or larger than the source drive. i am sure you have that covered. i have done this countless times with Acronis. my current computer is a refurb Alienware R6 that came with a 1 TB mechanical drive. i cloned it to a 1 TB SSD and then to a 2 TB SSD when space became an issue. good luck!
Anything to know before moving C: Drive (Win10 partition) to SSD drive ?
Using cloning software for the move of C:
Maybe by late next week I will install the new SSD (ordered 512GB SSD) to replace C: Drive C:drive is currently a partition (300GB) of a 1 TB hard drive, which has both Windows 10 and data.)
I will take it add it to D: using partition software.
The SSD will be 512GB C: drive.
The hard drive 1 TB will be D: E: F:
G: single drive
H: (only)
1)Sturmovik BOX
2)DCS Open beta

(back to C: (SSD) has DCS  release version.)

Total 1.75 TB (0.75 TB is SSD)

Plus 4 TB (USB backup and storage Hard Drive)

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.
