Developer Diary, Part 105 - Discussion

105

 

Hi Everybody!

 

We really hope that you enjoy flying Macchi which was released a week ago. But there's still a lot to do, both for BOS and BOM, and here what we're working at now:

 

- autumn map for the free add-on to Battle of Stalingrad. We'll be glad to show the WIP screenshots as soon as possible;

- new Campaign mission for the Early Battle of Stalingrad which will be set in summer and autumn settings. A few days ago these missions entered the testing stage;

- the engineers are working at flight models of MiG-3, Bf 110, Bf 109 E-7 and P-40;

- our artist team is making 3D models for MiG-3, Bf 110, and P-40. Soon we'll be able to show you screenshots of Bf 110's cockpit since the model is almost ready;

- all the vehicles need to have appropriate summer camo, so we're painting them green, brown, etc. Some of P-40 skins are also ready, and we'll present them later to you.

- also we're making new Multiplayer modes but it's a bit too early to disclaim the details.

 

Today, a few days after the version 1.102 release we're not ready to show any new planes, but we've got a lot of square kilometers of summer Stalingrad map - why not to share some of its images with you!

Can't wait for summer ... maps! This sim is amazing and it's pretty obvious that the best is yet to come! I wonder if the future will bring a ROF reboot with much better graphics?

Thanks!

Really looking forward those campaign missions! And other improvements for it ;)

Can we get those rocket launchers and other missing units to the campaign missions?

 

I like winter maps but summer is looking sweet.

Not flown BoS in a while (apart from 15 mins in a Rata) That was fun.

 

I'm looking forward to the snow melting. Hopefully I can get back into iL2 series again then. The screen shots look great.

driveable tanks?

I doubt it. Making drivable tanks would imply making the interiors, etc, essentially developing a tank simulator.

 

Since they have been saying how tight they are on time and resources, and considering that this deviates substantially from the core game, i would be very surprised if that was true.

Good work guys:) There is a reason why this has been my favourite game since early access!

It would be awesome if you could make the Tanks driveable ^^

 

I would rather see Il2 stay a true flightsim, than a mix of semi genres washed together. Besides the 3D models are perfect for a flightsim, but from a tanksim someone would expect more.

 

Just my 2 cents.

I allready presumed You would let this friday pass by without DD.

Even if You can not show us new cockpit-screenshots, I highly appreciate that You show us more summer screenies, which look by the way outstanding!

Thank You very much for all Your dedicated and hard work!!!:)

I was thinking more of a true coop mode - like RoF has.

This little tidbit sounds very interesting.  All of the planes, seasonal maps, features and improvements that keep coming out are making this the best WWII flight sim available.

Ahh those dust clouds kicked up in the summer heat. :salute:

Yea, those tire treads are nice. They match the originals quite well.

'New multiplayer modes'? :) Very intrigueing.

 

Looking forward to hear more about that in the future.

 

So glad to hear, that you're well underways with the MiG-3s FM. I take that to mean, that the MiG is next after the Bf 110? Awesome.

Gorgeous summer scenes.

 

If drivable vehicles (with a generalized driver/gunner first-person position) can be quickly slapped together I'm all for it, for one sole reason: it can attract new users.

 

I of course hope that the devs will keep a tight focus on planes, and I'm quite sure they will.

Well done with the summer textures.  The colours look bang on.  no small feat, as there are developers who have been struggling with that for years.

I'd enjoy if for no other reason than to explore the landscape. Seeing it all from ground level would be a blast.
