Tacview 1.8.5 is now available!

This quality of life update brings numerous fixes, improvements, and additional content to make data recording and debriefings more comfortable than ever in your favorite simulators.

Flappie has generously donated his Caucasus map for the benefit of everyone using Tacview. I would like to thank him again for his countless hours of work, this could not have been possible without him!

This new update also brings a brand-new UI for the DCS World exporter. All options have been cleaned up and unified, so the behavior of the exporter is now simpler and clear regardless of how you are flying.

Last but not least, with the new Terrain Downloader addon created by BuzyBee, you can download real-life vector/satellite terrain texture maps of your area of action in just a few clicks! Another nice prototype/preview of what is waiting for us in Tacview 2.0

Oh, by the way, if you want to know more about how Tacview has been made and related technical challenges, feel free to listen to the latest interview from the Grim Reapers.

Fly safe and take care!
Vyrtuoz & BuzyBee
