Developer Diary, Part 35

Recommended Posts

35

 

Hi Everybody!

 

As you may already know, the largest Russian video game exhibition is going on this week in Moscow – Igromir-2013. I’m practically writing this developer blog note here in the very epicenter in our own nice and cozy business booth. We'll be staying here for a few days talking to the Russian press and showing the game while talking up its features and of course flying, flying again, and landing with no brakes as usual :)

 

Maybe it’s because of your good luck wishes last Friday, but this event is turning out to be a success for us: the current game build works perfectly, and the editors only leave us smiling and being pleasantly surprised.

 

And though LOFT is not in the office during the show, the schedule is being followed and development goes on at full speed. Here is some proof we hope will cheer you up as the fall weather starts to turn chilly! Absolutely brand new and long-awaited pics of the development progress. This is the model of the Ju-87D cockpit and the exterior model of the Yak-1. Fresh and hot, straight from the artists' workbenches!

The Stuka pit looks amazing, though I must admit, that I have a hard time judging the quality of the Yak-1 model. Don't get me wrong: It looks fine, but I look forward to seeing it rendered in game.

The gunsights for stukas often had a black crashpad instead of a brown one. It would be nice to see some variation to this, I have pictures if it's needed.

Wow the level of detail in that pit is amazing. Is that the pit that will be rendered in external view or is that the detail in the pit that the pilot will fly in or are they both one and the same in BoS?

that would be one hell of a unlockable mod!

 

BTW, those pics look gorgeous. Have a good time to Igromir guys, and spread magic all over the place. WWII sim is back!

Excellent quality on the Stuka pit, going to be one of the first aircraft I will take for a ride in the finished sim!

It's internal only, but from what I've seen so far in the livestreams, the cockpits look pretty damn good in external, especially the lighting on night missions seen in the last stream. I also really like the very realistic rendering of the pilot, not just in level of detail and animations, but also in the realistic posture he's sitting in.

Lovely screenshots once more!  :happy:

 

And regarding a possible Ju-87 G-2 in BoS, wasn't the Kanonenvogel put into production only around April 1943?

im wondering about the modifications that 777 will give its Ju87D-3 since a long time.....but hopefully not the 37mm canons. That would not only be out of the Battle ( like the Fw190) but even more out of the timeframe..........

Yes, 777 said that the BoS plane-set would have to fit into the historical timeframe, so I hope that all planes after release will also be.

They already added a 'non-BoS' Fw190, surely to make the game more appealing to simmers prefering German planes, let's hope that they leave it at that .. :unsure:

Yes my bad for posting that Ju87G video which is from 1943 and should not be seen in 1942.
