To some extent, Wings Over Flanders Fields is dynamic, but it is not real time.  However, the missions are generated based on the activity on the front and are not scripted.  I've never lived long enough to see how the front moves, but I understand that it does.


It's obviously pretty true to life then...

I think what I'm asking has not been made.

Would love to play the EECH dynamic campaign, but with the  ability to control and play as ground forces.

IIRC there are several ARMA 3 user made mods/modules out where a persistant war is going on and you can pick missions to participate in different roles  ...i dont have first hand knowledge/experience  just remember reading about them

Can you hit me with a link?

I'm a pretty avid ArmA/OFP player, and I've never seen anything like that. Most of the Capture The Island game modes are player-driven and normally require a bunch of human-players to be effective.

The Wings Over Vietnam/Europe/North Atlantic/etc. are somewhat dynamic.  Again, missions generated based on success and failure, persistent damage to resources between missions, etc., but not real time, and nowhere near as robust as Falcon.


The Strike Fighters 2 series is the newer version of the "Wings Over XX" series, with some improved graphics and later updates.


I'd recommend getting the SF2 stuff to a newcomer, instead of the older Wings ones.

Look up Whole lotta Stratis, Whole lotta Altis and Dynamic Universal War System (DUWS).
Though it feels more like GTA or Ghost Recon Wildlands.  You get to bring along a squad.

It's amazing what the modders have done with the ancient Falcon 4 sim. 

Think I'm past messing with that old dinosaur, though.  I'd really like to see the Viper added to DCS sometime in the future, once they get past their current distraction and back to making good progress.

I really can't believe that will all the DCS planes available, there is no F-16

Might be still too classified to do it dcs study sim level, but after the F18 is done....I don't see why it wouldn't be possible to do the F16....all the technology would be in place to do a modern multi role.

There are user made semi dynamic with persistent losses for DCS.  Check the mission making forums at ED, there's ones for the mig21, f15, f5e,and mirage.

I don't own any of those modules, and I was looking at something more combined arms focused.

Again, I don't think what I want exists.

This is a mission for Microprose.

I think someone is working on the F-14 as mod but I would love a "US Navy " package. F-14, F-18 and maybe the A-6e intruder. Great plane that gets no love anywhere

I'd love to see an a6 too, the SAM and EW busting capabilities would be awesome in dcs.  The f14 is already being worked on by 3rd party devs.
