Perhaps they are waiting so they can surprise us with the map? Are there any current airfields that can support 262?

Fully loaded (with fuel and weapons).................> minimum 1800 meters to hope a safe take off.

 

So you just have now to check on all maps of the game😉

 

At the moment, I did not found any airfield that allows a take off with Me-262 except a "touristic plane" (with no weapons  and minimum fuel)😉

The Me262 will be released on June 6, so that it can take part in the Normandy Campaign and avoid any beachhead on the Continent. ;)

Alternate History: the the 262 single-handedly stopping the allied invasion of Northwest Europe, the Allies resurrect Hannibal and with his help, cross the alps from Italy. No one's really sure where they got the elephants.

I'm sorry to hear that. I hope you heal quick! 

On the plus side, when you do get back to flying, they'll probably be a crapload of new content, so you'll be coming to it all fresh.

Ouch...sorry to hear mate. I wish you a quick recovery.

Maybe time to change spitfire for bombers until full recovery 🧐 ...mmm ...maybe not a good idea, they are gonna become cannon fodder to the Me262s that will populate the skies very soon.:hunter:

Stay strong mate!

Nah, he just needs a mouth stick like Stephan Hawking had for his wheel chair - he'll be flying in no time and leaves the left free for the throttle and assundry key strokes. 👍

What a pitty - tomorrow I'll have the opportunity to actually play serveral hours on a single for the first time in months...

 

Had hoped I could use them to learn the 262...

 

Won't have internet though so would have had to download any new update beforehand...

 

Seems to be too late now...

 

But maybe it isn't?

 

WOLOLO!

 

or should I say:

 

SWALOLLOW!

I always hope for a DD on Friday's but also realize there is the workload to consider as well as holidays and other things that get in the way.

 

On the other hand, no one should expect content releases on the backside of the week. We've been down that road before and it's not likely to happen again.........for obvious reasons if you were around in the EA days. Look for releases on Monday's, Tuesday's and maybe Wednesday's. Thursday's are unlikely and you will probably never see a Friday release ever.

If you release an update on a Tuesdays, the team can immediately address any bugs which may arise. If the update comes Friday afternoon, and the devs take a (well deserved) relaxing weekend away from game development, they are subjected to a weekends worth of exasperation and complaints Monday morning.

As above, there was a Friday release in EA which had some undiscovered bugs which made the game largely unplayable. Users got frustrated through an entire weekend and the Dev's were unaware. They came back on the following Monday to a large part of the user base unexpectedly at rage level 11. Now updates are done at the front end of the week so they can be monitored and bugs squashed quickly. The team learned and adapted. They now have one of the fastest hotfix responses I've ever seen.

I don't think they are going to do an update just before the FS Expo as it would be a disaster if there was a bug.

I suspect that they'll have some kind of beta build of the sim at the Expo to demo the 262, with the release coming early next week. if its a big update they'll want to have all next week to arrange hotfixes and deal with issues if needed.

So four weeks after it was going to be two or three? I guess the flight sim expo was totally unforseen and surprising so that's fine.

I think that perhaps the update got bigger than they expected, so they took some time to finish up a few things and include it with a slight delay rather than have stuff waiting for next update. Perhaps including the 262 in sim required more changes than they expected.

Including a longer runway on an exiting map for the 262?

 

I wonder.

I think so too. Maybe we get an early glimpse at the new map too? I won't be back from Spain before 14th June anyways, so take your time folks.

262 with the update tomorow :)

 

A huge update on a friday, right as they are to present the new build at FS Expo? 

 

I highly doubt it. An update of this magnitude is bound to bring issues that will require hotfixes, and they don't want that to interfere with their Expo promotion.

I was marking the occasion (deliberately, not accicentally lol) as there doesn't seem to be a thread dedicated to the commemoration of what was a momentous event in world history; rivalling the great strategic strokes of the Wehrmacht in the West and East and also the heroic endeavours of the Red Army.

 

If today, you search "D-Day" on the forums you will find no thread with that name, and "DD Today" half way down the page.
