Developer Diary, Part 108 - Discussion

Recommended Posts

108

 

Hi Everybody!

 

P-40 is coming really soon. The team is finalizing the textures and the flight model as this dev blog is being posted. The plane turns out to be pretty specific and definitely interesting to fly. And it's particularly notable for the armament - six Browning machine guns. Yes, it may not be enough to intercept a heavy bomber fast and easily, but a fighter won't last a moment against their massive firepower. The effectiveness of two .50 cal machine guns have been introduced to you in the previous update that featured another premium BOM fighter - MC.202. This time you're about to equip at least three times more of the firepower. At least - because the Brownings are also notably more advanced than the Bredas.

 

Also you'll surely notice that P-40's dimensions are outstanding - it actually looks huge comparing to German and Soviet fighter planes. Maybe Americans just prefer everything big and comfy vehicles. On the one hand it gives the pilot some extra room and provides for more armored elements, on the other hand - these dimensions sure make you an easier target. So stay vigilant and check your six more often.

Amazing!!

 

Cant tell from my phone, is the speed in Mph or Kmh? As a european living in the US for a while, i just started handling Fahrenheit and haven't quite assimilated the miles.

 

This looks like an amazing addition to the game, can't wait to use those 6x 50cals.

Wow this cockpit looks like straight out of  FS 2002...  :unsure:

Hope this gets much more love before the release.

Awesome pics

 

Very keen to hear your ideas of the new multiplayer mode when you chaps are ready :)

 

I am wondering if this is simply referring to the tests with 100-player slots on DServer.

 

Nothing to indicate traditional co-ops or anything else super fancy from what I have seen.

Very (very) nice. 

 

Of course, the center wing gun should be both about 3/8ths of an inch above and inboard of the center position between the other two guns (seriously). 

 

I'm just tossing that one out there - lol - you're welcome.   :rolleyes:

Good to see it all developing.  Some news about the new multiplayer modes being worked on would be nice too but these summer and autumn maps are becoming more and more tantilizing.

 

Very nice P40 :salute:

The default skin is very well done as you can see, but don't forget you can paint her with an easy to use template. A lot of room for custom art, especially on the chin.

I am holding all opinions on any of his until I get the plane.

I don't believe we are tweaking FMs for those planes any longer.

Thanks for answer. But why? I think Fm is important for this game and players trying to help. Ze_Hairy reported fw 190 climb rate. He did test. Look here pls http://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/17539-fw-190a-3-climb-rate/page-2

 

Because they apparently don't agree or have time to work on previous planes. Not my call. I just give you the answer.

the pilot looks way to big for this plane?

1. Those are different planes.

B. Looks fine to me. I'm guessing the Soviet pilot is wearing thick winter gear while the pilot in the real life photo seems to be dressed down in summer gear.

Also, I think the angles are playing tricks.

 

Either way the plane looks badass.

Han is bigger than both those those pilot models. We only have one pilot model. We don't have the luxury of making multiple pilot models unfortunately.
