Changed my mind.
Falcon BMS has reached the zenith of its community-based development, setup is complex and learning curve too longggg, ground based objects rendered
on the old school platform are not realistic.
Whereas DCS is just getting rolling and will finally be releasing the Hornet soon, like spring of 2018.
DCS already has VR support.
Therefore, beginning with the end in mind, I have to go with DCS, and then wait for them to catch up with BMS' dynamic campaign capabilities in coming
It's absurd that they would create their platform and simpy focus on different airframes, without takling the creation of a sumulated dynamic
campaign, which will probably come out in a couple of years.
The graphics in DCS 2.0 are absolutely stunning.
Since it will likely take me a year to come up to speed, I want to pick something that will continue to be developed for years to come.
The Falcon BMS platform is just too old now, and will soon be outdated and upstaged by DCS in every way, except perhaps dynamic campaign modelling.
Eagle Dynamics should figure out a way to acquire Benchmark Sims and start working on development of the Viper (F-16), while somehow integrating BMS'
dynamic campaign (with AI) capabilities.
DCS in the coming years is certain to leave BMS in the dustbin of combat flight sim history.
