Time for me to finally bite into FC3, although I will probably never play it, like I am not playing any of the other stuff I bought in DCS. Not enough (life) time...

Just a heads up that 1.2.8 is likely to be released into Open Beta first. You can get ready for this by opting into the beta version under the Steam Library / DCS World / Properties / Betas and selecting 'open beta'.
EZ.Snackbar Mar 27, 2014 @ 8:23pm 
If I do that I get a 69.1 MB download and can no longer join multiplayer servers.
fearlessfrog Mar 27, 2014 @ 8:26pm 
Because that's likely the last openbeta version.

Opt in when 1.2.8 is released to Steam, or if waiting for MP when your favorite servers update.
FeltHλt Mar 29, 2014 @ 4:34am 
as far as i know open beta is still in 1.2.7.
[GCA] King Apo Mar 29, 2014 @ 8:09am 
Yeah it should work if both versions are up to date.

The Mig-21 is gonna be awhile after the disaster they had with the development team. I think there is an official statement on the ED forums about it.

i had read somewhere on the forum that they dont used to write 3rd party stuff in changelog

Expect the Mig-21 module to come out this April or shortly after. Though not from ED themselves. And it won't be included in the DCSW for free, of course. You will have to pay about $50 to get it.
