  1. Dear Pilots, We have recently launched our new payment system in the IL-2 Store. The company that was handling our store procedures for our .com website is closing down so we have expanded our partnership with the company that has been handling our sales on our .ru website. They are called Xsolla and they have been a great partner so far. By working with them we will have the ability to offer you more payment options such as Apple Pay and Amazon Pay and we can tailor certain payment options to your particular country. Xsolla is a leader in this space and offers safe and secure processing across the globe with tough anti-fraud measures in place. They are also based in the U.S. as was our previous processor along with PayPal. The checkout process will basically be the same, so you should not experience any issues. If you do, please contact our customer support. We will be closely monitoring for any issues with your payments. Again, if any issues please contact customer support. Today we are launching our Autumn Sale on Steam and our IL-2 and ROF websites! The sale will run from Monday Oct. 22nd (10:00 PST) through Oct 29th (10:00 PST). The Discounts are as follows: 66% OFF Battle of Stalingrad (Steam, website). Please note that having at least the base game (Stalingrad) on Steam means you can launch it from the Steam client without entering a login and password and you can access your IL-2 content purchased elsewhere if you link the accounts. 66% OFF Battle of Moscow (Steam, website) 25% OFF Battle of Kuban - for the first time ever! (Steam, website) 30% OFF Bf 109 G-6, Hs 129 B-2, La-5FN (Series 2), Spitfire Mk.VB Collector Planes (Bf 109 G-6 on Steam, Hs 129 B-2 on Steam, La-5FN (Series 2) on Steam, Spitfire Mk.VB on Steam, website) 40% OFF Ju 52/3m and Yak-1b Collector Planes (Ju 52/3m on Steam, Yak-1b on Steam, website) 50% OFF Fw-190 A-3, La-5 series 8, P-40E-1 and MC202 Collector Planes (Fw-190 A-3 on Steam, La-5 on Steam, P-40E-1 on Steam, MC202 on Steam, website) 50% OFF 10 Days of Autumn and Blazing Steppe historical campaigns (website, only Blazing Steppe is available on Steam) 66% OFF all Rise of Flight content (Steam, website) As usual, if you purchase a plane you already have you can send it as a Gift to a friend or squadron mate.

    You guys are crazy. Han just meant happy when he said amused. I try not to edit out all his funny choice of words. Remember English is not his first language. Although he likes stealing my Pringles. We're trying to plan for the future, but we have lots of work to do still on BOBP, FC and TC. The German pilot was created by a lovely and talented woman who works here. The US and WWI Allied pilots have been tweaked. We'll show them later on when they are done. Jason

    Guys, There will be the two types of canopies available for the Dora. I had originally thought no, but I was thinking of another plane. The Dora will have two different styles of canopies available. Jason

    American and British Voice "Actors" Needed ASAP!!

    Hey guys, I'm packing up for another trip to Moscow. I will work on this when I am there. Looks like we have plenty of volunteers so everything will be fine. I just have to devise how to best manage this project. Jason

    Guys, A tremendous response. Let me go through all the postings and post our next steps. Before we record we need to nail down he callsigns etc. I’ll make a separate post about that so hang tight. Jason

    Looking good guys. Keep em coming. One or two Canadian accents for the RAF is ok. Jason
  7. Guys, Need some help with radio calls. If interested look at the thread below. Jason
  8. ...and I use the term actors loosely. LOL Pilots, Work on the BOBP Career is heating up and the time has come to record our radio calls for Bodenplatte and put a western spin on our radio frequencies! I would like to find several voices for American and British pilots, airfields and spotters. Perhaps as many as 7 unique voices per nation. 1. You will need a decent mic and use a simple audio recording program we will provide to record in the format we need. Recordings should be clear with no background noise. 2. The total needed recordings for each voice is a couple hundred phrases, but don't let that scare you. It should just take you a couple/few days to record them and it's fun. The acting part is minimal, you're not competing for an Oscar. 3. No deviation from the script or format. Doing so will slow us down and hurt the project and no campaigning for changes to our radio system. We are already aware of changes the community desires, but we have no time or resources to deal with that now. Show up to do the job and be a permanent part of IL-2 history. 4. I will provide you with all the information you need to do the work. If you are chosen to help you MUST COMMIT to working quickly and efficiently and finishing the work. No flakes allowed. 5. You should have a fairly youthful voice that sounds like you are in your 20's or early 30's. You don't have to be that age, but your voice should not sound like an old man. If you are in your late teens that may also be helpful. There were a number of young pilots in the war. 6. For American voices I hope to have a few different accents (subtle, not strong) such as southern, mid-west, New York, Texas etc. 7. For British voices I also hope to have a few different accents to add some authenticity, but I am not an expert on them. 8. A military background in combat comms may be helpful, but not necessary. 9. There will be some small compensation for your help and you agree to a complete, irrevocable release for us to use your voice in IL-2. If you are interested in helping please post a note here in this thread and I will contact you soon with the details. Please state any accent you may have and where you hail from. You don't have to have any radical sounding voice, just need regular (young-ish) sounding people, but a little variation in them will add to the immersion. Once I have a list of volunteers we may have a meeting on TS to discuss the work and hear your voices (maybe have a little try out) to match up what type of voice I want you to record i.e. Pilot, Airfield or Spotter. This work will hopefully be completed by the end of this month. So if you are interested let me know ASAP. Thanks in advance! Jason

    Just one of our artists getting cute without permission. Jason
  10. Guys, There are lots of small detailed changes in this update. Just take it slow and absorb everything and if you see what could be a bug post it, BUT take a couple days before jumping all over us with small issues. Its likely we missed a few things. Beta testers caught a lot, but could always be something we missed. But please don't panic. Small issues are the price or progress sometimes. Jason
  11. Ok stop reporting the 1003 error. We're aware of it. Edit: We've had some server overload issues internally that need to be sorted. We'll get it fixed. Just be patient. Jason
  12. Every body relax. We're rolling out everything in the back end. Any issues or errors will be resolved. Jason

    Hmmm.... now lets' argue about the colors. Which green is correct? The Jug is looking great. The team is doing a great job even with some adversity this year. Can't say enough about their dedication to their work. Please get your sim friends to buy in. We want to do so much more. Jason
