Developer Diary, Part 120 - Discussion

Recommended Posts

120

 

Hello!

 

Today is an important day for the project - we start the beta test of three new Battle of Moscow timeframe planes at once: Bf 109 F-2, IL-2 model 1941 and Pe-2 series 35. If all goes according to the plan, these planes will be available to all owners of Battle of Moscow next week. It's possible that the new update will be postponed for a week because of the large amount of new content, but let's hope for the best  :)

 

As we said earlier, we started the discussion on what we'll be doing later this year. Long term planning requires long discussion, so we'll be able to give an answer to the question 'what will come next after Battle of Moscow' both to you and ourselves closer to its release. In the meantime, we created a list of improvements for our flight model department we'd like to have in the coming months. It consists of two independent parts that will be worked on in parallel, and the tasks are arranged in the order they will be done (the list is likely to be corrected as the work goes though). So...

19. Implement smoke generators;

Can you tell us more about this feature. I've seen the discussion about the smoke generators in the Russian forum, but it wasn't clear to me what your exact plans are.

Thanks for the news. Its a great list of improvements and a lot of work!

 

Especially thanks for these:

20. Make bailing out impossible during heavy rotations or other hard maneuvers

21. Make pilot head movement more realistic by adding a simple spine model

23. Make twin engine coolers on Bf 109 F4, Bf 109 G2 and Ju 87 D3 more detailed (currently always left cooler emits vapor when any radiator is damaged)

10. Implement jamming and self-closing of sliding canopies from high speeds and pitching/diving

1. Check and correct fineness ratios of all planes with their flaps extended;

9. Correct 'jumpy' behavior of Bf 109 F4, G2 and F2 to resemble E7 behavior and check other planes;

 

almost too good to be true. This could become the best update ever :)

Awesome update! I hope the Mig 3 FFB effects can be fixed as well! 

21. Improve force feedback effects on FFB capable joysticks (taxiing over bumpy field, ground impact when landing without landing gear);

That is a great list, but lets not get too excited.  I don't think that list is the next update list but rather a longer range project list.  I could be wrong (and I hope I am) but that is how I read it.

Yes - I read it the same way.

However the fixes list the flaps finess ratios as the first task so that does sound really good.

But is is still great to have a list of fixes and feauturs that are planed over the next months

Yes, Han clearly states "we created a list of improvements for our flight model department we'd like to have in the coming months."

 

So not on next patch, at least not all of them.

Great update and a very detailed list of proposed fixes/improvements, not to mention the pending implementation of the new aircraft. It just keeps getting better!

 

Cheers

do you mean... the "wobbling" in pitch and yaw mostly ?

Sry Mig fans and others, but this is by far THE Best Dev Diary ever! I've hoped for sth like this for long time and finally it's there! :)

 

Those are many good FM fixes and new feautures, I really hope they will all make it into the game.

 

The new planes aren't bad either.

Did I misunderstand something, MIG  fans?

 

Anyway thx for the update, looking forward to BOM so one can fly less modern planes with less modern opponents

16. Improve autolevel flight assist for non-dive bombers (He-111, Ju-88, Pe-2 s. 87 and Pe-2 s. 35) so it will use rudder instead of ailerons for corrections;

Those who called the Mig update the best dev diary ;)

 

Anyway, forgot to add a big thx to Viks and the FM team for working on all those nice FM improvements and feautures.

Hah and no word on climbrates and misperforming airplanes.

Just as i expected.

Winger just likes to whine.  Even in the face of an explicit statement from the devs.

There is of course no guarantee the outcome will be to your liking.

 

The opposite is most likely true, no matter what the devs do.
