Welcome to the DCS Tutorial Collection
An unofficial Webproject by MemphisBelle
Why a Tutorial Collection and what is the purpose behind?
Years ago I created a tutorial Collection for all systems and subsystems of the A-10C Warthog
on the ED Forums. The initial Post grew so large that it reached the maximum allowed amount of signs and was therefore
forced to move it to the ED Wiki. It turned out that the general concept was very successfull and the community made heavy use of it.
So I started to create a basic collection Frameset for all Modules. Unfortunately not all modules had tutorials. Most of the
available Tutorials were scattered across the Internet and many of them had been collated on that
particular platform. This Tutorial Collection was a great resource for all sorts of Pilots, whether they were long time
community members or had just discovered DCS.
ED decided to shut down the ED Wiki due to a lack of up to date content as well
as spam bots flooding the server, this meant that all this gathered information was instantly and completely lost from one second to the next.
Well, they were not really lost of course, but except for the great "Chuck's DCS Tutorial Library" all the other Tutorials were scattered once again
across the ED Forums and the Internet in general.
Since I´ve got my own Webserver I originally considered running my own Wiki to bring the Collection of Tutorials back to Life.
On reflection, I believe this Wiki would´ve ended up like the ED Wiki. Therefore I decided to use my humble html/css knowledge and
built a small website to bring the Tutorial Collection back to life only this time on a different Platform.
How does it work
To realize my idea to offer Information that can be easily navigated, we needed a logical path. By clicking on the "MODULES" navigation item on the upper menu,
you´ll be directed to a page where all Modules are listed sorted by their individual branch (Fixed Wing separated in modern Aera, Vietnam and cold War etc.). Each individual Module page will direct you further to Module related information such as Tutorials, References as well as Hardware Profiles (if available). The representation of the
Tutorials is further divided in Categories and Subcategories. All Information is available in form of YouTube Videos, PDF Files and Internet URLs.
It is important to mention that I wont store any material on my webserver, I am simply providing references to specific Information.
The right hand side boxes contain specific information to release notes, Release versions (linked to their individual Changelog reports posted by Eagle Dynamics on the ED Forums) and the most important YouTube Channels (linked to the individual Video libraries of each Channel) and furthermore Chucks Guides library on the ED Forums. Each Module also refers to Chucks Guides as well if available.
Can I participate?
Of course you can. If you´ve created your own Tutorial and want it to be added to the collection, just
shoot me a message in the ED Forums or send me an Email. For my contact information click this link.
