Developer Diary 206 - Discussion

Recommended Posts

Detail of the cities is truly awesome, I just hope we are not stopped from flying in and around them as now happens with Moscow, it is really annoying, especially so as the IL-2 career I am trying to fly at the moment has the airfield at the very edge of the city and the move away icon comes on every time I try to get to the first way point.

 

If there are to be any no fly zones then please make it so nearby airfields are allowed to be outside the zone so mission immersion is not compromised by this annoying aspect of the current maps, and if possible then please allow access to Moscow eventually, flying over built up areas is all part of the experience of a flight game after all.

 

Hopefully the cities will be available like in the old IL-2 where they were complete but mission builders had a damage brush that could activate the damage models of the buildings where it was applied, maybe one day Stalingrad will also be available in a the complete state prior to its destruction.

 

Anyway, gripe aside, the update is really appreciated, thank you very much indeed, the more I see development of the map the more I love it and look forward to eventually having the opportunity of actually using it.

 

Keep up the good work guys, all the aircraft so far shown and the new effects and scenery are magnificent and a pleasure to behold.:drinks:

 

 

Wishing you all the very best, Pete.:biggrin:

I believe they mentioned in a previous DD that all buildings will have a destroyed version, so there will likely be a way to show the cities as destroyed or damaged. 

IIRC this was for the buildings in the Prokhorovka area on the TC map.

One thing to remember is that all cities during WW2 in northern France, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands were partially destroyed! Not only because they were bombed by the USAAf or the RAF but they were invaded by the Germans how bombed them once they were liberated by the allies. So, plenty of destruction to go around. 

An example Leuven a city between Brussels and Liege in Belgium was visited nearly every day from 1943 until September 1944 by the US or British air forces and when liberated by the V1 and V2 of the Germans.

By the way nice cities and good progress like Always great work.:salute:

wow. Köln looks amazing! that makes me wonder, is there a chance Moscow will be updated at some point in the future and be accessible to planes?

Don't be diplomatic, Asgar.

Sweet pics of the towns. They really are a class above what we already have. It has made me sad that the maps are usually one of the last items to be released and so much content is to come. 

 

I CAN'T WAIT

I swear that with each passing game, the maps just look better and better. 

 

Great job devs!

The cities are amazing!  IMHO the best cities I have ever seen in the sim environments...

Only a little scared how such beauty will have the impact on the fluency of the flight...

If we are talking in a base sim yes but paid addons can be very good also.

Yes, I thought of the base sims (to tell the truth I have mainly X-plane and CLoD in my mind 🙂 )

Of course, e.g. ORBX add-ons for civil sims are top notch...

EDIT: I also know I cannot fairly compare autogen with custom made citises... I have just wanted to express my 

praise to the BOX devs

Thans for your amazing work! 

But shouldn't Cologne in ruins at that time ??

By the way, If Moscow can be bombed, many bomber players will be happy, bombing factory and airfields are boring..

Yes. I´m pretty sure they get to that detail once other priorities are done.

Great pics! Since it is showing the "old non blown" canopy it triggers the obvious question: Do we get D9s with both the "old" and the "bubble" canopy? That would be great. And can we get the "bubble" canopy also for the F8?

So while they implement the new Technologie for cities, maybe they deactivate the no fly area around moscow 😀

 

Would be awesome

Cities well beyond expectations. Nice work. Hoping for realistic damage options for mission builders of course.

Doras were flying with both types of canopy.

He was immediately dragged out and shot for the example. 🙂 

When do we start having something about the P51?

P39, P40, P47 ..... I love the bigger numbers

Wow, an early (non-blown) canopy on Dora! Looks lot better than the blown one on D9 to me. 😃

That Dora shot looks amazing but that's not the game's ligthing model, so i can see how it's gonna come back to bite them once it doesn't look like that in game and people start complaining.

 

Great news about the cities!! Looking forward to playing in this map.

God no! We want to fly victory rolls over Moscow's Golden Onion Domed splendor in our Mig 3's 😁

 

Such a pretty city, as are many throughout Eurasia from West to East.
