Developer Diary, Part 119 - Discussion

Recommended Posts

119

 

Hello everyone!

 

The holidays are over and the new year is upon us. This means that Battle of Moscow release comes closer with every passing day.

 

Six out of ten new planes are already available to players and three ones will be ready in a month or so. The tenth and final BoM aircraft is the most complex one: Ju 88 A-4 bomber. Its development process is the most intensive one at the moment,  five specialists are working on it every day. In the same time, mission designers are making the campaign since Moscow area map layout is final.

In the same time, artists are busy making official skins for new aircraft. 50 new skins (half of the required amount) are already finished, 50 more left. We'd like to show you these skins today:

Thanks for the news! Looking forward to BoM and all the other improvements coming this year. :salute:

 

Those skins look really nice to me.

Nice paint schemes! Some of the choices are really interesting like the Bf-109T or the numerous US skins.

 

I also found it interesting to see 2 of my own skins made for the Mig included in here (white 40 + red 02). It's a little unfortunate but it's always good to have variety.

Nice skins.

 

Nothing much this time, but I guess we've been spoiled quite a bit with the last handfuls of DDs which have been extremely good.

 

Looking forward to see the final result of your work. In the meantime I'm still having tons of fun with the MiG :biggrin:

Thanks for the update-these make my Fridays!

One question about these new skins:will they be part of a open-to-everyone download as in "Useful Mateerials in RoF or will one have to "win" them in "Official Campaigns?" With all the very good Custom Skins being produced,I see very little need to fly the campaign missions to win skins or the BoS medals.Third party missions & campaigns (& most especially PWCG,) are much more up my street, & I can play them with uncensored Luftwaffe markings. I would guess that these new skins will be a great addition to those who play more online than I do. ;)

( Hmmm, while I'm thinking about it maybe I should take a short stroll over to the "Skin"section & see what new treats await me there?)

Great to read that intensive work is being done on the Ju 88! Five devs working on it daily is hardly underwhelming. Keep up the good work!!

This one is a little underwhelming.

 

I guess I'll wait for the next DD.

Some have to be a bit underwhelming so the next ones can knock your socks off.

 

Its all relative.

Skins are some of my favourite part of any sim so to me this DD was long awaited :biggrin:

 

Lots of great stuff, very impressive work, I'm looking forward to flying all of them :ph34r:

Thank you for the update, I still look forward to these DD Fridays :)

The Art work looks fantastic! The colour, different patterns, worn effects, even the way each plane was presented. The screenshot, (directly below), of the planes reflection on the water was my favourite pic.

And this one brought memories back! Is it Racer X from "Speed Racer" ?

Thank you again

Seems to be a real scheme although a very interesting interpretation (haven't found any real pictures yet)

 

Bf.109E-4Unit: 3/6.Iztrebitelen Orlyak

Serial: 4 (7057)

Karlovo, Bulgaria, 1942.

Interesting, all those Med skins for the P 40.

 

Always liked the PVO schemes on the Mig 3 and I 16 as well.

What part about the fact that they just returned from vacation you do not understand?    :rolleyes:

Welcome back and good luck in 2016. If I can make a suggestion, it would be good if you can concentrate on a few more skins that are relevant to the Battle of Moscow and Stalingrad. The ones from Norway, Africa and the Channel coast are nice, but are perhaps best left to the fans to make.

Great finds, thank you.

Can't help but wonder, if this design was used as a reference for the: "Racer X No 9 Car" in the early Speed Racer cartoon series..

Awfully good of the devs to do a DD this early in the year!

 

There are some great looking skins there, my knockout favourite being the 110 squiggly winter camo one.

 

Why the non-theatre skins though? British, Flying Tigers, etc?

 

Were the black 109 skins for operating units or something special?

 

And the map looks great, The trees especially seem better graphically than in BOS. All exciting stuff.
