  • Save Mission Destructions will make an intermediate save of all battle damages that accumulated in the running mission. It may cause a short freeze/stutter of the game. Normally not needed as this is called automatically at mission end the action is there for folks behind instable internet connections or afraid of a DCS crash that would cause a loss of the inflicted damage.
  • Battle Damage Assessment will trigger an intermediate save of all battle damages, analyse them in respect of target definitions made by the mission designer and display a textual report. The report lists destroyed scenery object types and statistics. Based on the assessment results the mission designer might trigger additional actions.

The "Settings" submenu allows to configure Project Dynamism behaviour in the current mission or to reset destructions for a fresh start.Radio Menu Entry

  • Destruction Report [ON/OFF] toggles whether all battle damages that accumulated in the running mission will be automatically saved at mission end.
