    TFS Developer Update – Nov/Dec 2018

    You know, I probably never would have imagined that the Scharnhorst, Prinz Eugen, Admiral Hipper, Scheer, and Renown and Revenge Class would be in TF 5.0. I guess this means the Arado 196 will possibly be flyable in TF 6.0. You guys rock😅

    TFS Developer Update – October 2018

    A question that I’d ask is: How long has Team Fusion been working on Patch 5.0 for? Whatever the answer is, I’m glad to see that it’s nearly ✅.

    Does IL-2 GB need to return to the Eastern Front?

    One thing that could be added is the Soviet invasion of Japan in 1945. Though if it ever happened it would be a minor project

    Release date of BOBP

    Looks good Voidhunger, but I think we'll see of few of these sooner. December- Dora February- Mustang, possibly map March/April- Tempest*, map for sure May/June- P-38*, Me-262, B-25, full release. I don't think they'll jump to Berlin after Bodenplatte, I think they'll go to the Pacific. If not, then full effort on FC and Tank Crew, and or Eastern Front 1943-44. Note: We haven't heard any news on the P-38 such as 3D models, but we have on the Tempest so that's why I state the Tempest will come out before the P-38. However, the team are searching for Tempest cockpits, so it could come out at the end.

    TFS Developer Update – October 2018

    I think we'll probably see the next update in December as if they release one now then they'll have to release the next one in early December ( 2 weeks from now) as many people will go on holidays in mid-late December. Another thing is that much wouldn't have happened in that time period. I believe that Team Fusion wants to show us the Wellington, Tobruk map, maybe some other planes, maybe they'll release the interim patch before going on the winter break.

    cliffs of dover blitz edition VR support?

    If Bodenplatte is ready for release in April 2019, and TF 5.0 is also ready in April, then there would be no issue with that.

    cliffs of dover blitz edition VR support?

    I really don’t think that will happen. BoX and Cliffs of Dover are two completely different games. Plus, TF 5.0 will cover Tobruk, while Bodenplatte will cover the Western Fron 44-45. 777 has no control on when a TFS product is released, only TFS does; if the two are released at the same time then that won’t affect the sales of either of the two games. Personally, I believe that all, if not, many of the aircraft will be imported by the end of the year, January will be the final tweaks, February will be Beta testing, and March 2019 will be the final release of TF 5.0.
  8. I love everything that they added in this patch, the P-47, K-4, more detailed damage system for vehicles. Got tired of the engine failing and it saying “.... destroyed “player”. The one thing I’m disappointed about is that the American pilot has a life jacket, yet he still dies when parachuting into any body of water. What’s going on here guys? This should have been fixed with patch 3.001, at the very most, 3.006, but no.😡. Other than that, I hope that we can fly the D-9 before the end of the year, as well as WIP pics of P-51, Tempest, and P-38
  9. Jason stated in 2016 when he signed the agreement with Team Fusion that if 1CGS did the Battle of Britain then they would get lots of flak by everyone. Jason wants to go to the Pacific, that is his absolute #1 goal. He knows alot about the Eastern Front and the Pacific, but not necessarily the Med. If BoX did do the Med, then it would be after the Pacific, I'd guess 2023+ and would be limited to a few, such as Greece, Italian Campaign late 1943-1945. If Jason saw no potential for Cliffs of Dover and Team Fusion to be successful, then he wouldn't have given them the 1C source code. When TF 5.0 is released early next year there will be many new flyable planes. My question would be, what other game can you fly a Wellington, Dewoitine D.520, Bf 108, Gladiator Mk.II with highly detailed cockpits? If you think that Cliffs of Dover should die or by axed by BoX, then post that on the Cliffs of Dover Forum, or PM the moderator, Buzzsaw. Here is how everything (roughly) is: IL-2 Cliffs of Dover (2011-17) equivalent to IL-2: BOS Alpha Cliffs of Dover Blitz= IL-2: BOS late 2014 TF 5.0 North Africa= BOM TF 6.0 Siege of Malta= BOK Here is the video regarding Jason and the Med :
  10. Fact is Legioneod, when Cliffs of Dover came it in 2011, there were no plans for IL-2: Battle of Stalingrad. It was only in late 2012 when 1C pulled out was when the latter game was planned. Throughout history fate has sometimes been beneficiary. An example is that if Henry VIII’s first wife had a son that lived then he never would have needed to divorce her, meaning that the Anglican Church would never have been created, and Queen Elizabeth I wouldn’t have been born. In this situation, if CloD hadn’t failed then 1C wouldn’t have signed the agreement with 777 Studios to make IL-2: BOS. My question for you is why don’t you want to have 2 perfectly good IL-2 games in the future which have the latest technology, and 1CGS has some part in development, why do you want there to be only 1?
  11. All in all, I think that it’s just a miracle, probably the greatest miracle in the IL-2 series that a game made by official developers could fail, become abandoned, development is restarted by a group of amateurs and now they are the official developers of this game. Can anything top that? I like Cliffs of Dover, but I only play it sometimes right now because there is just one map, you can’t select ordinances, they say that vehicles and artillery guns are playable, but they aren’t, there are some technical and performance issues, currently there is no VR. However, in early 2019 TF 5.0 will be released (we’re currently at 4.53), which will have the Tobruk map, release many new flyable aircraft, some are, Wellington, Dewoitine D.520, Bf 108, Gladiator Mk.II, P-40C/E, Hurricane Mk.IID Tankbuster; new ships will be added, many game issues will be corrected. In roughly mid 2019 VR will be implemented. As an important note when TF 5.0 is released the only thing you’ll have to pay for will be the Tobruk map and the new aircraft/ships, the fixes will all be added to the game for free. In the future, possibly 2020-21, TF 6.0 will be added, which will include the Fw 190, Aircraft carriers, probably the Siege of Malta. I understand right now why someone would rather play BoX than CloD, but for someone to say that they should axe the game and let BoX take over is totally wrong. If that happened, then BoX would have to start from scratch and therefore would be fewer new planes than in CloD. Here is a question for you people who believe that CloD should be axed, why did Jason give them the 1C source code then? 2B fair, if TFS wasn’t given the source code then TF 5.0 would be a low budget, less detailed product instead of a comprehensive professionally developed product. I think that it is totally unfair that a group of amateur people have put this much effort and are trying all of their best to make this game a success, and yet there are people who just want them to stop. Fact is that every product made by TFS financially benefits TFS and 1CGS. For people who want CloD to be axed, you can say that as much as you want, but just be prepared that it won't happen For those who haven’t already, check out the Cliffs of Dover section on the forum and see all of the updates since July. Thank you for reading this.
  12. Yeah, that's why Cliffs of Dover will cover all 3 of them.

    Developer Diary 210 - Discussion

    Well, I remember the devs saying that the U-2 would be released this Autumn, so I think it’s safe to say that the U-2 will very likely be in 3.007. The D-9 and the P-47 3D models and early cockpits were shown at the same time in June and September. I believe that the D-9 will possibly make it into 3.007. One thing for certain is that these two planes will be released before the end of the year.

    Developer Diary 210 - Discussion

    They said a few weeks ago that they were finishing 5 planes at a time, including the U-2. It was stated that the 4 stars were the planes shown today, but that doesn't mean that only 4 planes will be released in 3.007. I believe the U-2 and the Fw 190D-9 will be released in 3.007, but they couldn't show them today because they just weren't ready yet.

    Where to after BoBP

    I think after Bodenplatte they will move onto the Pacific. If not, then I think they will do the Eastern front after Kuban, such as Kursk, Smolensk (1943), Bagration, Hungary or Finland. I believe that it’s too soon to do Normandy after D-Day or Berlin due to key bombers and aircraft that need to be made. If the Mediterranean is done, then it will probably be limited to Greece, Algeria and Morocco, and Italy, minus Sicily, due to the fact that the rest will be covered by Cliffs of Dover and the devs don’t want to canniblize the product. I believe D-Day will also be covered be CoD because it makes sense, considering the fact that it also covers the Battle of Britain. Lets hope that the Pacific doesn’t get delayed again and that they do the Battle of Guadalcanal😃. Probably after the Pacific is when the Allied advances after Normandy ( except for the Tank battles) and Berlin will be done.
