Developer Diary 218 - Discussion

218
Dear friends,

The Spring has come and in today's Dev Blog, after some delay, we're returning to our main project - Bodenplatte.

..................................
First, we can disclose more details about the map of the project.

..................................

But these map development news are not the only ones we have. We can show you the progress we have made on the three coming planes: P-38J-25 heavy fighter, B-25 heavy bomber (AI only), and Me 262 A jet fighter. For the first one of them, P-38J-25, we have used a new approach of creating the exterior and interior 3D models in parallel

..................................
The B-25 bomber will be AI-only in this project, but we'll try to make its exterior 3D and physical model at the same quality level as our player controllable aircraft

..................................

The exterior 3D model of Me 262 A "Schwalbe" is completely done

..................................
To finish today's Dev Blog, we would like to congratulate the beautiful half of humanity on the coming holiday - International Women's Day. Dear girls, be happy!

..................................

Wow, I'm amazed.


I would not have thought that there are already news today! Great work. The Cologne Cathedral reminds me of my visits in Cologne :)
And with the two-tailed devil I can hardly hold myself back.  Thank you for your hard work!

Impressive work!

 

Having visited many of the mentioned cities, it is amazing to see how well they are captured in the game. Especially the unique building show with how much passion the Il2 team works. Instead of putting just some random churches in place they actually modelled them according to the real life counterpart.

Coming back from a short pause in Bodenplatte coverage and the Hype train is going full steam ahead i see 😁

I can't wait to be able to fly the 262 over that enormous map, there is definitely enough space for jet powered planes

edit: i love how the pilots is just like "i wanna go up there"

my favorite dev team is once again showing us how they produce quality content with hard work.

 

They can put less quality on their modelling work, most people would not notice.

 

But they choose to do their VERY best , as always.

 

Congratulations guys!

We are so lucky to have you !

Amazing, updates new aircraft, tank crews and bug fixes.

 

Then an excellent DD, all in one week. Brilliant stuff and many thanks for the continued development.

 

Much appreciated.

 

Mike.

duuuude,

is that the "interallies monument" in Liege that I see on this image?  The topography seems to point to that but just wanna check...

 

BTW on a thursday I see my beloved P-38 in progress, I learn my hometown will be modelised on this HUGE map, and that the Schwalbe is almost done. And all that the same week MotoGP are back to business...

 

it's gonna be hard to beat this one

I liked a lot to see a hint of light in the windows of that Cathedral in the dusk scene! Beautiful!

I'm absolutely amazed by the tremendous work for the new map you are doing! Fantastic and I'm really looking forward

to take a crate for a looooong flight - all alone, slow and low just to discover this beautiful work of art. Thank you!

Is there any chance that draw distance for ground target objects can be increased for the BP release?

And maybe a nose position for the A20?

 

(a shame about the b25, but in fairness it was always communicated as being AI only).

Do hope the B-25 will become flyable before too long, I'd be game to pay for it. Can someone tell me more about the D version with the belly turret? Don't think I've ever seen that before. Will all the ones in game have it, or are the AI only aircraft available with modifications (I don't remember if the turret mod for the Ju-52 existed before it became flyable. I think it did?)

B25 as a collector's plane is an obvious opportunity for them for additional revenue. I am confident they will provide it. If they did so for the Ju52, they absolutely will for the B25. People will lap it up... not only a super iconic aircraft, but it will finally be the first allied medium bomber.

 

And that map looks amazing. I wish it went a bit more south so we could properly have the battle of the bulge, but this provides us with so many options (and some for the Battle of the Bulge too, to be honest, especially if map designers get creative). Being able to cover the liberation of Antwerp will be interesting as well. :)

Well, I imagine it will be after the completion of BoBp, so that's a ways off... but the devs have a pattern of announcing collectors airplanes after completing each projects, and I would be _very_ surprised if the B25 isn't one of them (and, let us hope, the Spit XIV).
