Dear Pilots,

 

Today we announce that next week we will unlock all modifications (weapons, equipment, skins) for all planes if you own either the Standard Edition or Premium Edition of BOS or BOM. The Starter Edition, primarily sold in Russia, will not be changed. Unlocking all modifications is the first step in a new direction (or old direction depending on your point of view) for our beloved IL-2 Sturmovik series.............................

It may not be the right thing to do but I'd love a thread naming the banned players.

 

Aside from that, all good stuff.

Thanks for the news!

 

New map looks great. And actions against cheating are always welcome.

 

You have my support, looking forward for more news in future.

I think I buried the lead. No more needing to activate the unlocks. They now come already unlocked. Please help me spread the word.

Unlocks did not bother me but it is definitely right direction to remove them, it has annoyed many people. Good call  :salute:

Really great update Jason.

 

I noticed a flare gun in the Ju-52 gunner compartment pics.  Will the gunner be able to shoot flares?

That's very much appreciated. :good:  On a related note - does it come with any changes in the handling of the pilot level or is that going to stay like it is for now?

Ooooh chance of some more ship types to be developed opes the door to early 1944 type aircraft

 

Jason can you swing the map over and include Sevastopol I have been reading on the air action at the time of the siege could make a good source of missions

Unlocks didn't bother me either. In fact I'd like to keep them as they are now in my account. But no big deal. I'm more interested in preorder of Yak and Ju. I hope it will start soon ;)

Odessa sounds nice. I really hope we might see torpedoes soon. Would love to use torpedoes with the He-111 H6. Odessa could be a starting point to test it maybe :)

Also cant wait for the Ju-52.

 

Btw the Odessa map, is it the next theater of choice and planes or is it just a new map?

I must say I am liking some of the stuff I am hearing now. May even update my initial install for the first time next week when this gets pushed out.

I like the direction that is starting to happen.

Odessa is just a new map.

 

Do you already know how Odessa will be published? Free like Velikie Luki or as DLC like Yak-1b and Ju-52?

Great news. Unlocks didn´t bother me but it is great to see the team is open to concept changes like that.

The new planes are great. And Odessa looks fantastic!

 

That Odessa map is needing some IAR81`s!  :biggrin:

 

EDIT: Ban those cheaters for good!

All good news... I would add, that naming and shaming the people who cheat may make them think twice about doing so again...

Wow !!! Great news !!!  

 

While torpedos are not availble, I will be really busy dive bombing russian ships  :salute:

 

A sea map was really a nice move and bring more elements to the game. Make the sea as big as possible to keep convoys out of fighters  range  :ph34r:  It will be great to try to spot them flying bombers on long sea patrols.

 

Good Job !!
