  1. Hi Syn. Your mission builder is a great tool and I am loving using it. So having no idea how it works and what can be done, is it possible to add more life to the home airbase and target airbase? I just wondered if there was a way to have moving vehicles, maybe munitions vehicles, humans.... just a bit more activity for the take off base and similarly when attacking a target having vehicles driving around the apron, etc, etc? Just asking. Cheers, Mysticpuma
  2. And that is all that is being asked for.
  3. That stills puts you in the same situation as the first post because any new player will simply say "I have a transparent box", all that is being suggested is the confuser.ini be set to 0 when launched and then if players want to enable it (as experienced will) they can do so easily. The point of the post is to stop (genuinely must be hundreds of posts) new players asking how to get rid of the window. If the window isn't there they won't ask how to remove then eventually if they want more details on the screen they can look at the flashcards. This is about new players fi ding their feet not experienced ones having to work out how to do it.
  4. The mention of the 190A was not the point of the quote, the end of the text was the point. Currently there have been quite a selection of posts mentioning that TFS have to be allowed to continue their work, that was one of them.
  5. I summarised the updates from across the posts as follows: From Buzzsaw: August 15th 2020: "Addition of the TrueSKY weather engine, with new cloud system, as well as weather effects, and water effects. We had a working beta of this new weather system tested in December 2019, but it needs improvement and the addition of additional features and was not ready for release. The expectation is we should have this new weather system in place in Fall/early Winter of 2020. Addition of a Virtual Reality viewing system. This is a larger project, and will take a great deal of work and development. At earliest, it will be added in early 2021... and it is more than likely it will be some time into the new year." 69th_Spiritus - October 7th 2020: "VR is a long ways off. We are focusing on finishing tessellation, seeing if we can give the option of 4k textures for aircraft, and implementing the new clouds/weather system. Then we can start messing around with VR." October 8th 2020: 9./JG52_J-HAT "Is the original timeframe for VR still current, i.e. early 2021?" ATAG_Pattle: "VR timeframe is likely to be pushed back at this time." November 13th 2020: Buzzsaw: "VR is a priority for the development of the game. It has not been pushed back... all development is proceeding on the plan as listed in the following post: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/.../64430-planned-future.../ At this point VR is between six and nine months away assuming the work goes as planned." December 11th 2020: Mysticpuma: "Over a year since a single image of TruSky was shared. Any news?" Buzzsaw: "We are currently in an Alpha... when we have material we can share Pattle will post it in an update." December 22nd 2020 Buzzsaw: "We licensed the software approx. 13 months ago and only got full access to the support we needed at that time. And we created a proof of concept Alpha after about 2 months. We then put TrueSky development aside to complete TOBRUK. Otherwise TOBRUK would have been a 9 months later release. We only re-started work a few months ago. Plus as mentioned, Simul has changed the background programs which support TrueSky to new versions and updated which meant we needed to start again." ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Next we have the comments about discussions happening with 1C: December 11th 2020: "Assuming we are able to continue with our work, VR will be in the list of elements we will add." Buzzsaw - December 17th 2020 "Hello All Once we finish our discussions with 1C there will be an update on the planning for our next module." "There will be an update on upcoming developments and TF 6.0 once TF has finished its discussions with 1C." Buzzsaw on the Steam forums: ""Hello Super Hans We will be introducing the FW-190A in our next module, assuming we can go ahead and do that." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- To summarise the way I read that. TrueSky was in Beta a year ago but is now back in Alpha. VR is not coming until TrueSky is implemented. It's a year since TrueSky was in Beta and now back in Alpha, so it's most likely another 6-months before we get the new weather and then development begins on VR, which at that rate will be another year-and-a-half after, so around the middle of 2022? However, with very little communication about what is going on with the TFS roadmap, also the odd comments about "if" we are allowed to continue, very little being shared of the work in progress, all we can do is speculate, so that's all this is. Cheers, MP
  6. Same as those who know nothing about creating well edited, competent, exciting, interesting, dynamic and popular video content to market their product. So each to their own talents I guess?
  7. "Free Lunch"? TFS have said it will be a free update, is that what you mean? It will only have taken about two-years since TFS got the software, so right on track for their development speed
  8. Announcing the module at the same as Truesky is released would be a good idea? Players coming to check out the new weather would then see news of the future for v6 and wherever that takes us? Good marketing

We are still just a bunch of enthusiasts who do this for fun. **Deleted my post on the ATAG forum so as not to have repetitive posts as requested** Is it that long since I exited TFS!? Yes, fully aware of the setup. Also fully aware of the benefits never being likely to reciprocate the effort.One thing I would like to see from the team is a long post laying out the challenges that lie ahead, what the plan is before TFS 6 is/may be released, just a bit more explanation of what the player base can expect for the next year.I mentioned TruSky having a single image posted over a year ago and thanks for your update that it is currently still in Alpha.VR has obviously been much discussed but this has been delayed until TruSky is implemented, so with that still in Alpha what expectations are there of VR in 2021?With 2020 coming to an end, Tobruk finally released and bug fixes ongoing, would it be possible for TFS to engage with the community about the plans for the next steps of development with a rough timeline before TF6 happens?Thanks,.
