Recommended Posts

Version 1.101

 

Dear pilots!

 

Today we're not only deploying the major update 1.101 but also we're starting the long-awaited early access to IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Moscow! This is an important step in the project's development, and we're proud that together with the testers we managed to release this new version in schedule, without any delay.

 

Everyone who's pre-ordered (or will pre-order) Premium edition of BOM gets access to the first game's plane - I-16 type 24. The release plan for 4 more aircraft is as follows:

 

August - MC.202 Series VIII

September - P-40 E-1

October - Bf 109 E-7

November - Bf 110 E-2

 

Owners of Standard edition pre-order will get access to the early game builds of BOM later in October 2015.

Superb job. Thanks! Though I have one concern now. How the MP will be handled now? Will we have servers with all planes available (but BOM planes flyable only for BOM buyers) or two separate servers, one with BOM and one with BOS planes? Both scenarios arent good IMHO. First scenario will let ppl fight in Bf109 G2 or Fw190 vs I-16 (not a fair or historical match) and in other scenario we will have community divided because not everyone purchased BOM (me, because of current financial issues)....

I think the best thing possible is to have both platforms mixed with one another (both from a sales-driving and a gameplay standpoint) - there should be nothing to fear with the I-16 unless you've committed yourself to some asinine turn-fight on the deck.

Well, it's really gonna be up to the individuals running the servers, isn't it?

BlackSix, I have some Question about this update/patch.

 

  • Was the DM improved aswell because somehow I notice a improved DM. I see somehow now different and new DM effects that I never seen before. For example. Some shots from a Bf-109 into a IL-2 that have Bombs and Rockets loaded cause that the whole plane cut into half. Maybe I hit the fuel tank or a bomb that exploded and cut the plane into half. I really like the new never seen before DM effects. :thank_you:
  • If I turn off HDR. I turn off the Bloom effects, too? Good to known? :scratch_one-s_head:

 

A very great update/patch for me  :good:

Finally the f11 key. The new graphic options are excellent  too.  THANKS !!!

 

Rata handling is perfect, take off and landing easy.

Its easy to shot down with bf109f4 and vice versa.

Nothing was changed with the damage model.

Some way to go still, but a good step forward nonetheless, especially with the graphics options.

It would help if you couldexplain exactly what these 'new DM effects' are.

 

There have been many updates where I've had the 'feeling' that something was changed in FM or DM only to realize after some more testing, that it was just my imagination.

Because you haven't been paying close enough attention to the damage model. That stuff you describe as "new" has been there for a long time.

It'll come together with the new season maps, which are scheduled for 'Q3 2015' which means any point from now 'til September.
