"DCS World Dedicated Server" modular installer installs a special DCS World version which is intended to work as a dedicated server and doesn't contain textures and sounds. Installed server takes at least approx. 20 GB on HDD up to 170 GB depending on the installed terrain modules, and works as a full-functional server controlled only by WEB (i.e. without any GUI features). This version allows the installation of any set of the available terrain and WWII units module, works without 3D graphics and sounds.

Terrain and WWII units doesn't asked activations when launched in server mode without rendering, server owner shouldn't buy them.

NOTE: these "free" terrains can work ONLY on dedicated server without rendering. You can't use them on the client.
