Hello folks.

 

Couple of questions from a not so experienced Steam user.  I have bought Il-2 Stalingrad and other Il-2 stuff via Steam and just downloaded the latest update.

 

If I NOW buy Bodenplatte from Il-2 Store, are the new planes available for me in my updated Steam version?

 

Am I right supposing that when Bodenplatte appears on Steam it is usable. This is what was said in the store: " Pre-Order customers will have the option to receive a Steam key for this product after its release "

 

Just want to make sure that I don't make a $70 mistake, Steam parallel game universe still confuses me a bit...

I'm very impressed that you got the Gyro sight working so early into the early access, and I'm really happy it's an optional sight. 

 

2 down, 8 to go. BoBo is shapping up to be the best expansion so far.

Login to the website using your login and password and buy Bodenplatte. When you run the game from Steam it will be right there with Spit and G-14.

I could easily catch up to and outrun the G-14 below 3000m, when I performed a few practice flights earlier on. It's more than capable, but we may get the 150 octane as a mod when newer planes are introduced.

Hi Bosendorfer,

me too, I have bought Stalingrad and Moscow via Steam and then I bought Kuban and Bodenplatte (both Early Access) here in the store. Everything immediatelly got updated when I started Steam. So no risk for you and more important all of the money goes direct to the Dev Team. Have fun.

I sweaaaar someone posted docs proving 150 octane fuel was in use by the Spitfire squadrons during this time frame and location...  109 gets MW50 but spitfire doesn't get proper boost levels.. I see how it is 😞

Check your profile page on the IL-2 website to see if the key has been activated?

I suspect part of this is me not being overly familiar with the plane, but I did some attack runs on Ju52s in a Quickmission just now and the Spit's Hispanos seem a bit lackluster 😕

It took surprisingly long to down a Tante.

 

But by god the startup sound is divine.

Ad the Gyro sight is a dream.

Thing about this game is the ratio of nice surprises to nasty surprises has progressively improved out of all recognition.  Downloading now with my TiR hat on.... can hardly wait.

Yeah, that was me, and I would very much like to hear the reasoning behind this decision.

 

E: Also, the dev blog is plain wrong in regards to its claim that the G-14 was the last G-series 109 built. That distinction goes to the G-10.

 

The G-14 was a much needed yet ultimately fruitless attempt at reducing the number of variants based on the 109G airframe.

What an awesome/unexpected surprise! I truly did not expect to see BoBp aircraft so soon after BoK final release!

 

And the fact that we get bells and whistles like the gyro gunsight so early in development is even more incredible!

 

The devs just keep raising the bar for this genre! Truly awesome work.

 

If only I wasn't stuck at work for 4.5 more hours...

Maybe they wanted to even the odds between the Spitfire and the G-14 a bit before more advanced planes come out? Right now they're both very capable of shooting eachother down and it seems like a good matchup. Alternatively maybe they want to get it right at 18lbs before they complicate the flight model further. It already has two engines and two wing types

Only, except for sustained turn rate, the 109 is now better in every regard compared to the Spit IX.

I'm excited to see the update but the Spitfire is a plane out of time at 1943 settings. Needs +25lbs to be a real life LF IX. The RAF did get access to this fuel on the Continent unlike the USAF so the plane should be represented as such.

 

EDIT: I also have a suspicion that the 109 currently outclimbs the Spitfire. The climb times given on the stat cards are at combat power for the 109 and international power for the Spitfire, but the 109 benefits heavily from Emergency power while the Spitfire benefits much less from WEP.

Don't know how you did that.... at combat power and 100% the G14 is faster on the deck.

Extremely nice screenies of two of the upcoming planes, really very attractive.

Nice juicy video as well, really nice thumping cannon sound :good:

 

Oh, and what was it again, can the Bodenplatte planes also be flown in the BoS series, I forgot
