Developer Diary 228 - Discussion

Recommended Posts

GREAT!

I had just changed into a new set of underpants and now this!

 

Seriously: This has to be the most exciting update in months for me! Not only seeing a couple of peeks of the new map, but all three american BoBP fighters in a shot is very, very beautiful.

Can't wait for the announcement of the new collector's airplanes!

 

Gee, I think I'll just have to drink a gallon of bleach, to lower the excitement againt 😵🤩

This is a welcome update indeed! I love the new physiology model, the increased visibility (YAY!!!), and the ability to add personal photos to cockpits. Will that extend to Flying Circus? And the P-51 looks breathtaking. 😮

 

Also...new collector planes? Sweet! I’m predicting 2 will be the DFW and the Breguet 14 for Flying Circus.

Fantastic work!!! The new G-load effects sound very promising and could have a great deal of impact on gameplay. 

 

Maybe I missed a paragraph, but does it say anything about how this will be applied to the AI? 

 

The new planes, and especially the new airfields, look splendid. 

 

And of course you buried the lead: Increased draw distance is up and running. Just awesome news! 

 

And my avatar has made it into the cockpit of a strapping young LaGG pilot ❤️

It does say that G-loads will affect you and your crew, so presumably there is some application of G-loads to the AI gunners etc. Presumably it would also affect the AI planes.

Also, my eyes must not be very sharp, I can't spot the distant planes in either pic. My namesake would be ashamed.

It's a new feature coming with the next update.


" We have now added this capability."

Would be weird to say 'now' whilst it will be in the next update?

Fantastic work as allways. Whatever collector planes in the pipe, I will by them all. Just curiouse wich physiology-model the ai will use and what the impact on performance would be, if the full model is in use for all units.

It would also to be weird if they could add functionality without an update, 


I think that they mean they have added functionality for the beta build

Great news 🙂

Do new physiology model will affects AI pilots and gunners too?
Do physiology  limits are the same  for average bomber pilot as for average  fighter pilot?

With all due respect, if the Collector aircraft have been decided then why the delay in revelation?

 

Much money - including mine - awaits to be thrown at any additions...

Because it detracts from the other stuff we have going on and we want to make sure they are still possible after we do our pre-production research.

That P-38 cockpit is a work of art.

 

And regarding the Collector planes, if I even see a hint of "XIV" I may pass out from the lack of blood going to my brain.

Ah, so the Ar-234 / Typhoon / Ju-188 / Ta-152 is a difficult effort? Totally understood.

 

Sure all will be welcome after the well-documented Spitfire XIV is released 😎

How much CPU power will take the new fatique model for AI planes?

That's really simple. They want attention focused on Bodenplatte and not on the new collectors aircraft.

A B25 collector plane could be pretty cool.

B-25 flyable for collector?
Wishful thinking i know but i'm allowed to daydream.

 

hell, late model A20?,

hurricane IIa? (JOHNNY RED!)

mkXIV Spit?

A-26 invader? (still daydreaming)

Meteor?

Mosquito?

B-25G with the 75mm gun?

JU-88P yes, that one.

 

or perhaps some Radar equipped planes and some night missions?

 

like i say, daydreaming but when you spoil us we can't help it.

Hope the Tempest V is Sabre IIB / 11 pound boost as of Bp, not the pre-summer 9 pound boost.

 

Otherwise we will have some very angry campers.

I think the collector planes are likely to be western-front oriented, and like the other planes, fitting into the timeline but perhaps not exactly the theatre.

My completely unfounded speculation: Spit XIV and Flyable B-25 are the low hanging fruit and in demand. Mosquito would be amazing and I would pre-order it right away. Meteor...maybe? If they did all the work on jet physics i doubt they are done with jets yet. The other ones seem less likely to me.

I'd also moondance accross my desk if they added a P-51B/C (alias Mustang III, alias F-6B/C) or even a Mustang I/II (or F-6A).

Sabre IIA on +9lbs is not accurate for Bodenplatte, just like loading under 200 rounds per gun for a combat mission other than armed recce.

Let's make it really chancy; Spitfire XIV, and Typhoon...

Of course, we cannot collect all this information about you, and take all these factors into account in such detail; such a model would be excessively complex, although it would probably allow the player’s best immersion into virtual reality. Nevertheless, we found that the most reasonable approach would be to choose a certain averaged model of an average pilot physiology

 

I'm really happy about that. Would be pretty boring to only be able to fly straight on:pilot:

Hi, I hope the P-51D cockpit gets the yellow/white banding in the cockpit to easily visually segregate the engine instruments and flight instruments

Wonderful DD thanks to all involved for the continual improvements and features.

 

As for the collectors aircraft....

 

I'm hoping for one of these....

A flyable one of these would be fantastic...

And if we get one of these it would be fantastic ;)

the fuel tanks of the Tempest don't look out if you look at it from behind, they look out in the front of the wing like gunpods.

 

This is a bomb.

The item in question has the wrong shape towards the rear. Should be streamlined not flat like the example in the picture and  I'm not sure if it would be visible from that angle if it was a drop tank like the design below.
