LOL, that's rough! I feel for you.

 

No doubt... 😥

 

It’s OK, I guess I can temporarily set it up in the office and use that for a week or so. Not ideal but good enough to fly around the new map if it’s ready .... 😀

Happy birthday all you guys, my little brother's turning 30 on Sunday, I was thinking about getting him IL-2 but I doubt he'd ever get round to playing it knowing him. Oh well, a 20yo bottle of whisky will have to suffice. 🤷‍♂️

I don't think so. No DD either. Its crunch time after all.

I predict big update the week of september 30th, after my in-laws have gone home. Supposing I live. 

Mine arrive that week. Worst possible timing!

Not exactly "unfinished", but the Fw 190A3 took several revisions to get right (eventually I think they just about nailed it) and when it was first released, it seemed pretty obvious, that they had aimed for the closest approximation possible with the knowledge they had back then, just to get it out on time and with a mind to revisit the FM later. 

 

Getting something wrong is not the same as unfinished, though I take your point. I certainly don't remember the devs admitting to it being wrong or unfinished until, eventually, it was resolved. The point was: The Devs have extremely high standards and they have never given us any reason to believe a patch release would be 'unfinished' or intentionally sub-par just to get it out the door, and I thought it was a strange and rude accusation of the OP to make, given that there was no precedent. 

True enough - They can still be wrong, and make mistakes, I grant you - but so can we all.

The flaps are an issue across the board IMO. People have complained about the Yak-1 'magic flaps' since time immemorial, and the same with the Spitfire - its just more glaring with a huge plane like the P-47. There's some modeling assumption made with how the flaps affect lift/turning ability that produces these extreme edge-cases.

It's pretty obvious that this is the FM working as they intended. Broken or Wrong, it's not 'unfinished'. Did you read the post by Jason at the start of that video? He's clearly saying that it's finished. Please don't make me defend the flaps or engine timers or whatever, I'm far from pleased with their decisions all the time, but that was not the point. 

 

These are interesting points Luftschiff!

If I build a kit car, but after I tell everyone I have finished and the car is working as intended, however the steering always drifts to the left, is the car "unfinished"?

 

In one sense, if I don't pick up my tools again, I have certainly finished working on the car, but that would be true at any point in the car's construction.

Also, it is clear that I have finished putting the parts of the car together as they are all attached, but this would be true even if I had super-glued all the parts into a ball.

One could make an exhaustive list of all the tasks required to make a car and only count the car as finished when all are complete, but then the same problems arise when we ask "Is task 345 finished?".

 

One might argue that the defect in the car means that it is not finished, but then at what point is the car ever finished? When the steering is aligned to 0.1 degree accuracy? Or must the steering be aligned to 0.00000001degree? Or closer than that? It is not clear that a car can ever be finished if any defect renders it unfinished.

 

It would appear that the term "finished" has little meaning when it comes to the results of construction, labor or artistry.

Ha! Ha! Yeah, the pigeon tends to be a bit 'dirty' tasting as well, given their diet!!

The update thread was locked over a year ago and the discussion just naturally migrated here, I guess.

Thursday would be risky. The likelihood of such a massive update requiring multiple hotfixes is pretty large, so they will probably try to avoid releasing it too close to the weekend.

Indeed IIRC dev diaries (almost) always come on fridays bur updates with new planes just pop up at random dates.

 

Imagine if the update brings the p38, p51 and tempest all at once? It will break this forum.

And if the map is included too, we could be looking back on "The Update that Broke The Internet".  Wouldn't that be serious.

The update is bringing all of those PLUS the Rheinland map. The forum might explode.

What about:

- Summer uniforms for US/Brit/German pilots
- Pilot physiology and fatigue
- New sound-engine
- 100 km visibility for ships and aircraft
- 30 km for ground objects
- completely new assets
- personal pictures in cockpits

(i probably forgot something 😅)

😄 the forum deserves to blow up by those great things

Based on the last few DDs, the next update will absolutely include all three, that AND the AI B-25, Rheinland map, increased draw distances, new sounds - possibly even the BoBP career mode, pilot physiology modeling and a few other things.

 

So be prepared for the forum to break.

I hate to agree with you, but I think you might be right. Unless they sneak it in next Monday to keep with the 'late September' release window....

Really can't wait for this to land. I think the word epic is actually poignant in this situation.
