4. Route markers and other icons can now be shown or hidden from the map dynamically during a mission (TRG_Activate/Deactivate are influencing TRA_Icon now);

 

 

Any chance this will be implemented in ROF Mission Editor?

I suppose that Velikie Luki map is the main reason for such big update.

And no word on corrected airplane performances?

YAK-1 still the heightfighter that broke the game for me?

And again.. very impressive change log! Can we expect more AI-only planes? U-2 next perhaps?

The Ju 52 as AI-only I can accept, but don't even think about modelling the U-2/Po-2 and not make it flyable :(

If you fly MP, please heed the above if you run across this... it doesn't happen often, so the more people actively attempting to collect data the better.

Ok first impressions of the Ju 52:

 

'Sitting duck' doesn't even begin to describe it. It might as well be made of pure tin foil. I took down three in a row with one burst each and didn't even use half my ammo in the Yak-1 on my first attempt. I'm also surprised at just how big a target it is and easy to hit despite its slow speed.

 

It's propably accurate, but it means that Ju 52s used in MP will need massive protection or they'll be shot out of the sky in a matter of seconds.

 

Also: For some reason the model struck me as somewhat underwhelming. I don't know what it is, but it just appears very bland and box-like. I'm propably being unfair but I guess I was just expecting more visible details :unsure: and it's a little bit disappointing that the passenger cabin/cargo hold just appears completely empty.

 

Still, the Ju 52 is a nice and necessary addition that will certainly be fun to shoot down/trying to protect.

On 'Palm Sunday massacre' it took ten minutes for 59 JU-52's to be downed   :o: I guess they were not particularly sturdy

Congratulations to the team. Looking forward to downloading tomorrow. I hope the AI only aircraft is not too much of a resource hog and can be present in sufficient numbers.

I hope one of our talented Mission makers will quickly put together a good escort/attack  Ju-52 SP mission today using the maximum number or potential this sim is capable of.It would be great to see a sizable fornmation of Tante Ju's! :cool:

Is the Ju-52 going to be viwable in the object viewer? Its a long download so i am asking in advance to seeing for myself....

(Is there a how-to convert to Steam...It works well with CloD & I see no reason why not to do it here as well.)

Converting key to Steam makes use of in game chat and some other features so easy now. Thank you for listening your customers (and thank you all that asked for it also, since I did not :)).

 

Ah, if only you would work same magic with ROF now so we can add and merge our accounts to steam one (I own both, combine have 170% of the game, but neither has full 100% on it's own, just seemed silly to buy everything again even tho I doubled a lot of it).
