Game version 3.001 discussion: Final Release of the Battle of Kuban

Recommended Posts

Stunning!! 

 

Had no issues logging in and everything is working as well as before so I’m sorry to hear some of you are having problems.

 

The new draw distance blew me away and makes it feel like. A different sim. The new planes are wonderful and in the short time I tested them I very much like the p-39 the best so far

 

I didn’t get a chance to test the rain or going through clouds but had a quick go on the new Career mode. It seems thoroughly well researched with echoes of the ROF career which was great. My only issue with it is the choice of pictures for my pilot!! I wanted to test the mode and choice Moscow and the LW but the pictures to choose from will likely give me nightmares for some time. What happened?! The ones in ROF were old photos but these seem to be a mixture of old photos, editing and artistic licence.  I don’t mean to offend if they are real pictures but they seemed out of place with the high production values of everything else in this sim.

 

Otherwise you guys have done such an incredible job and I look foreword to supporting you in all that you do in the future!

Anyone else have A20 yoke that is bouncing around? Its fine on the ground and as soon as I take off its going crazy. Its not my stick on ground it doesnt move but once I start gaining speed it oscillates worse.


No problems in any other planes.

Close the upper cowl flaps before takeoff - and keep them closed.

Just managed to recreate what you did in the video.

 

Same issue. when looking behind and i roll my head, the roll is inverted.

 

Just inverting the roll does not fix this. (it'll just shift the problem to when i'm looking forward)

 

Yeah, inverting the roll axis just makes it tricky when looking forward as the axis only inverts when looking past 90 degrees (straight out the wing). Maybe add a post to the link in the tech support / trouble shooting post.

 

Did it do this pre 3.0 for you?

You need to close the "inlet" cowls on top of the engines before takeoff.

Just recorded an hour and a half of Kuban content and lost it all due to hard freeze with Kuban patch :unsure:

 

Definitely still some kinks to work out, heh.

After this update I have insane stutters. More online than offline. Was ok before the patch so it isnt my PC. And I see Im not the only one with stutters. My FPS is stable locked at 60 all the time.

Other than some FPS loss and microstutters on the Kuban map (which I'm not too surprised by with my old rig) 3.001 is a huge success for me.

 

Great new content all around, but the new career mode does call attention to the fact, that the AI still needs improvement - it is far too timid. In my career missions so far I have literally been more afraid, that one of my squad mates might collide with me during formation flying, that I have been afraid of enemy fighters.

Oh, I am so unhappy with this update... In VR (I only fly VR) it's no longer worth looking through my Rift glasses. The picture is totally blurred and the fps are beyond repair. Checked different parameter settings. No help. It worked so well before this update. OK, I agree it's only an carreer mode update and the rest of us are fairly neglected. What a pity. I regret now thoroughly having bought already the Bodenplatte early access to support the Devs. Anyhow, there are better simulators on the market to play my Rift HMD with a satisfying immersion. BTW, I tried to convert my favorite Ju52 missions from Pelican (deleted te msnbin-files and saving the mission again. Now the landscape is in an ugly bue. Good luck for the Developpers for their Carreer simulator. I am out.

That increased drawing distance makes SUCH a difference. I really feel like beeing there now. Can't imagine how this will be the day I go to VR.

This is not only a computer game, but a piece of art. Really really well done.

Most everything works great and the visuals are stunning.  Love the P-39.  I have  one significant problem.  All the supporting visuals:  HUD, MAP and messages are so small as to be almost unusable.  Did not have the problem before 3.001 download. Checked every setting I could think of with no change.  Anybody got suggestions?  thanks   jn

Had no issues like this pre 3.0

 

I will however respond to your post in the correct forum.

 

Aside from this, loving the patch and the new planes! Lot's of hard work went into this version, and it shows

If you could login earlier today after the update and not now, that probably means too much traffic or something. If you could NEVER login after the update perhaps a firewall or anti-virus is blocking you. If you have another computer, try installing there to test and see if you can get in. 

 

Again, we no clear answer on our end. Everything shows green and functioning.

 

Again post if you are on Steam or website. You guys gotta help us out here. We show no obvious problem.

There is definitely some Geographical problem (DNS maybe?). I can login via a VPN server located in Germany but not through my VPN located in Portugal. With 2.012, both VPN servers worked without a problem.

Is anyone else getting constant elevator flutter in the A20 when in flight. Not happening on any other aircraft ?

 

 

 

Yes. Happens after a minute or two, as if the control rods have been shot out or something. I've only seen the effect once, on the 109, after I got shot and it was so weird then I think I made a post here about it.

 

I checked I wasn't over max dive speed, just cruising level at 300mph and bam, flutter.

 

I'll make a bug report just in case, but hopefully I'm just missing some weird A-20 feature not mentioned in the Specs anywhere...

La5FN looks like it's taking the title of fastest plane on the deck. Bf-109G6 equipped with 30mm will give unescorted Pe2s and Il2s fits on the servers. Rain effects are beautiful. Love it so far. Thanks.

Wow, those rain effects in VR. I have to say this is by far, BY FAR, the best performance of any title I've tried in VR. Simply outstanding.

Also I read the special thanks in the credits. Well done to those forum regulars who helped with this. Thanks to the devs and to you guys. Very much appreciated.

On EXPERT settings there is an icon showing position of my plane on map (default "O" key). How to turn off this icon on EXPERT?

I am wondering the same. Used to be able to turn off the plane position with "I", but that no longer does it.

It’s the upper exhaust cowling, think it disturbs airflow to the tail..you have to close it.  I believe it’s in the “specs” page of a20

Skywalker; close the inlet cowl flaps - the top ones - and the vibration stops.  Took me half an hour to work that one out tonight!:rolleyes:

Oh my [Edited] God! (Sorry for the language) but the Carrer mode is just amazing! Really well-done guys. The ground feels alive and the missions are just top notch. It ran smoothly here and it is very very immersive.

 

Don't be sorry for the language.. just stop using it...  :dry:

Congratulations on a fantastic upgrade. The career mode is now superb. I also bought the G6 and new LA5 to go with it and how good are they!!!!! Brilliant! One small thing I can't figure out how to do now though....how do I get rid of my plane icon on the map in expert mode? It used to be a key bind with the compass heading overlay. That still works so I can get rid of that overlay but the plane stays. Any ideas?

Hi team,

 

the very first excitement was (and thats a pity) moved to the little disappointment.

 

- First flight I took Yak7b into the rain weather. The effect is nice, thats true, but when I tried to put my head out of the cockpit, no effects appeared on my glasses. As I saw in the intro video, it should.

- Taking A20 and changing the positions by Ctrl+C, in some positions camera has centered in weird places, so I had my own head in the gun, etc... When I folded the gun into the rest position, it was totaly out of its home position, it was somewhere on the left.... bug

- Pressing of H for HUD, or I for Icons, makes freezing of screen for a moment, which is very unpleasantly, almost unplayable. the same for activating map.

- TAB for players list is UNUSABLE - bcs each reloading causes freezing and shattering. 

- You wrote AI is more clever (IF thats mean that they are doing unrealistic sharp turns to avoid hitting the ground, so then ok, Plus it lasted just two minutes to find a way when they will always hit the ground.  The stupidity of AI is still the same. sorry for saying that.)

- The long distance terrain is very nice improvement, but all those nice pictures posted on the internet are from ultra settings which no one of us have in real life when flying VR. The settings must be tuned down to have optimal fps. I played with settings whole evening and still didnt find the good solution. Hope will get it soon.

- UI scale I couldnt change in graphic setting. I had to go into startup.cfg and manuly give 1.50.  scale 1 is UNUSABLE for VR. the text cannot be read. Holy crap even with 1.5 it is smaller than before. Why? Interface is small, heavy to read.Some names of airfields etc,... cannot be zoomed by mouse, so still unreadable.

- Loading times to join the dogfight servers are 2times, maybe 3times longer than before. Too much, not?

- Names in player lists are too small, cannot read them  in VR. Have you tried this update in VR guys?

-  was trying to fly the same server like each evening, and with 3.001 the experience was this: flashing, freezing, jerking, shattering, not smooth movement of cockpits in the front of you. The whole impression is bad. Yeah fps dropped a little but these visuals I guess is something different. Which can be optimized in some upcoming fix, right?

- The icons of destroyed things... who painted this? Instead of AAA some weird circles? Why? it is totally out of the quick getting know, what is should represent. Its complicated, not clear.

 

Not to be just ugly, Yes rain drops are wonderful, clouds and terrains also, Stalingrad textures much better, thats all fine, but it seems like still need to be optimized  to get smooth and nice experience. Thanks for your work.

Career mode - Amazing!

When I successfully complete a mission I get the text on the screen in French, even if I have everything in English;

 

The water on the windshield is just awesome and the new clouds are gorgeous!

150KM is the new deal, can set everything down on settings but the 150km and the clouds!

 

FN is a killing machine! Is that how the germans in their F4 felt all this time? :P 

 

The other planes are also interesting! P39 has a LOOOT of firepower!

 

Got a dump on FPS on VR, needed to dial back the settings a little to get better, but still not enough. Will probably do it again tomorrow.

 

Everything else is amazing! I'm so happy with the results!

 

Long Live Bratya 1C Game Studios! Long live Il2!

Speaking as an offline SP guy.

 

The new visual updates are great! The new winter colors are awesome. The new sky color is beautiful. The new Stalingrad textures are amazing! I haven't figured out how to get the second cloud layer yet. The rain effects are the best I've seen. The new horizon is a godsend. 

 

I've tested the new planes and actually surprisingly my favourite new plane is the G6 followed by the A20. That Mk108 is just wonderful at ripping planes apart. 

 

What I really love is the new career. Vik deserves a bonus. This is the career mode I've always dreamed about and more. Seriously amazing job guys you've really outdone yourselves with this one.

Just flew the A-20 under a railway bridge. Water splash on the windshield was a nice - if alarming - touch. The only 'complaint' I have now that the A-20 is forcing me to map input and output cowl flaps separately, is that I'm running out of control levers. I thought twelve would be enough, but I guess I was wrong. :dry:

 

An awesome game just got awesomer. :)

Ha! Ha! Yeah, I got that too but hey, a small price to pay temporarily for such an upgrade eh? It'll get sorted, I'm sure. Thanks again everyone, now all I need is some new templates to get some paintjobs on the beauties!! I'd do one meself if I knew how to access... How DO you access the files or is it a thing that only certain lucky blighters get access to coz I'd love to do a/some template(s)?
