Update 2.003

 
Dear Pilots!
 
Jason coming to you live from the Moscow 1CGS offices! We are very happy to announce that we have just released Battle of Moscow and our two latest Collector Planes (P-40E-1 and MC.202) on Steam. Battle of Moscow can be purchased as a standalone product from our website, but on Steam it is available as DLC for Battle of Stalingrad. 
 
This completes our latest development goal and Battle of Moscow is fully released and available to all! Of course, small updates, bug fixes and other improvements will continue to come as we move into our next development cycle.
 
In addition to the BOM Steam release, we have made changes to content availability in the game and on our website. We have also made some changes to the official Sturmovik store such as adding a shopping cart. More positive changes to our website will be coming in the weeks and months ahead. Please note the changes we have made below.
 
1. You can buy any Collector Plane while having any edition of the game. For example, you can buy the P-40E-1 and fly it over the Battle of Stalingrad.
2. Collector Planes come with all their modifications and skins available from the start, regardless of how they were purchased, separately or in a Premium Edition.
3. Collector Planes’ modifications and skins will be automatically unlocked for existing owners as well (this process is underway and will finish in several hours).
4. If you own both Battle of Stalingrad and Battle of Moscow, you can use all the planes in any campaign where they were available historically.
5. BOS players who don't own BOM yet can login to multiplayer servers hosting the Moscow map and vice versa for the Stalingrad map and BOM only owners. However, you must own the planes offered in the mission to fly them.
6. If you bought Battle of Moscow on our website earlier and wish to convert it to the Steam version, you will be able to do so on next Monday, August 15. Please note that since Battle of Moscow on Steam is a DLC and not an independent game you'll need to have Battle of Stalingrad activated on your Steam account to play it. You'll receive a Steam key for Battle of Moscow DLC.
7. Standard Edition owners now can unlock all weapon modifications through our website without playing the campaign (previously this ability was available in Premium Edition only).
8. In the future, when you choose to Activate Unlocks through our website we will include the skins as well as the modifications for either edition of the game. The earning of unlocks as a concept will be completely optional at that point.
 
And as you know, we are also considering our future steps with the IL-2 Sturmovik franchise. Much discussion within the team is taking place this week, the result of which we think will be welcomed by all of you. More information will be released in the coming weeks along with the opening of pre-orders for the flyable Ju-52 and Yak-1b. Two very cool planes that will further expand our plane-set on the Eastern Front.
 
And finally, the game has been updated to version 2.003. The full list of changes follows:

Very nice! Can't wait to try out the new fixes.

Thx for making unlocks and skins availabel for everybody, I'm sure this is very much appreciated. Also the new website looks better structured and the rearangement of Premum planes sounds good.

 

I'm exited about the result of your meeting in Moscow and of course the Ju-52 preorder! :)

Personally speaking, the P-40 could contend on an equal footing with all the types of Messerschmitts, almost to the end of 1943.

Wait did I misread something? I thought it said only unlocks are are no longer needed to be earned. But skins are only free for premium edition owners but not for the standard edition owners.

Skins for Collector Planes are already unlocked. Unlocked skins for main titles not ready yet. Much work to make that happen.

a very wise decision to allow BoS/BoM only owners to participate in either map. With the community as small as it is (online MP), dividing/dissipating/fragmenting it would, IMO, be a wrong move.

.

thx for the work guys! always breeds new interest to get updates.

.

then, on a more sarcastic tone, im glad to see the 190's pilot head position from external view is fixed.

Congratulations on the launch of BOM!!

Looking forward to purchasing the two new planes.

The Steam DLC key is... Odd? Im sure there is a technical reason for it. Maybe a DCS type of arrangement might work better? Free base game (lagg3 +lapino) and then modules (BOs,BOM,BoMed)?

Thanks for all the fixes, looking forward to trying it tonight, excited about grass visibility.

I know there are even more announcements coming this year (BOMed, DX11 among them.

Exciting times to be a virtual pilot.

Ok, so the new gun sounds are interesting but to me they're way too loud compared to engine sounds, radio ect.

 

Are gun sounds going to be adjusted in future? If not, do you plan implementing an amplitude setting for gun soundsfor those that consider it too loud?
