Looking good, just hope I can get it up and running when I get back home after updating to Windows 10.

You can play on any of the maps in multiplayer, so set up your WW1 scenarios there if you want to buzz over 1944/45 Europe.

 

 

Thanks for the info, I am aware that that the FC planes can be used over any map as I have taken my camel over the hills of Kuban (that somehow sounds like a euphemism looking for meaning?) but when I do fly I only fly offline which would mean purchasing a WWII plane-set I don't want to get access to a map that whilst idly curious about I'd have no need off...

 

Still looks good though.

Nope. Jagdpanzer IV. Looks like the Ausf. IV / 48 (Sd. Kfz. 162) and not the Ausf. IV / 70 (Sd. Kfz. 162/1).

 

Actually the perspective is tricking you. If you zoom in you'll realize it is indeed the /70 version built by Vomag. The /L48 always had either a muzzle break or (if lost) you'd see the screw thread. Here none of that exists ... and in fact the second Jagdpanzer hidden behind the first makes the /L70 more noticable.

Thanks for DD WOW :clapping:.  What else can be said now that we have more details.  

I think the "elephant" in the room is how massive this update will be and how long to D/L? I would hope that for those with slower internet connections that it would be broken down into several d/l's if that would be possible, I hope that we will receive more information on the d/l prior to release.

Wow, the new map looks stunning. I can see myself spending hours just doing an aerial tour of the whole thing. Also that Flakvierling is going to give me nightmares.

Agreed.

 

No negative intentions here but the upcoming massive update will very, very likely come with a LOT of bugs that will need to be corrected. We should not be surprised about this. :salute:

Hmm, hard to tell, really because usually the units in the field used L/48s without Muendungsbremse as you can see here from Ardennes and Normandy. Anyways we will learn soon enough and either version is appreciated by me:

I'm liking the pictures in cockpit of all these wholesome, monochrome Gels from the nineteen forties but we will be able to put colour pictures of bikini-clad slappers in too won't we?:)

Glad you boys came along. On a quick flip through the DEV images I thought it was just a lowly Hetzer :)

This new map sounds stunning together with the newly developed tech to support it👍

 

Will there be pre-done destruction across any areas of the map?

Glad to see the ground units are getting some love, nice selection there! Will there be British ground units too?

Any chance to see horses or infantry to fire at some day?

Some flak Panzers would be formidable foes for ground attack planes :)

Unfortunately,  it appears to be the JadgPanzer IV,   which has the wimpier gun  75  L/48 ,     Wish it was theJagdPanzer IV/70  with the 75 L/70 gun,    which by the way was the more produced of the 2.   I'm still  hopefull that the Ferdinand will become available  soon, part of the original  set

 

The pic is  confusing though.   It appears to be the shorter barrel 75,  looking at it relative to the vehicle,   but the L48  had the muzzle brake on it, the L70  did not have the muzzle brake.   SO which is it ?

It's probably the WIP model.

Units which were equipped with the L/48 didn´t use the muzzle break either because it produced lots of dust clouds and gave away position and made target observation very difficult, so they removed it in the field. We need a proper side view to know for sure if it will be L/48 or L/70 in the game.

This is probably the best looking map ever made for any game. Ever.

Looks better then expected, Kuban map raised the bar prety high already (just map is worth buying BoK) it will be close call betwen thouse two, it dosent look like bobp map will be just flat from pictures shown

Massive indeed. And you've tripled the building rendering distance? Bravo!

 

Ouch, the Quad Flak 38 could be a problem. :hunter:

If it's as ridiculously over effective as the rest of the flak we'll stand sod all chance of getting anywhere near a target!!

Looking great! Though hopefully the RAF Tempest & Mustang skins are not final yet as they are not accurate. Can't wait for the update!

 

What's wrong with the Mustang skin?

Both are missing the sky coloured tail band required with B type wing roundels. The tail band was deleted in January 1945, but the upper wing roundels changed to C1 or C type.

Again, as I've said before....you guys are a riot. They show you an incredible new update with the coming map, and absolutely beautiful looking new aircraft models. And guys are going on about the muzzle break on a tank destroyer, and another is complaining about the color of a roundal. Jason has to be shaking his head.

This is why Jason keeps his hair short, otherwise he’d have pulled it all out a long time ago. ;)

See it from the positive side; as long as people discuss the details  it means they do like the upcoming map and its planes. :)

You hit the nail on the head. You only discuss something you like and are passionate about. If you don´t like it you ignore it. So yes, discussing game details is a compliment for the devs. They need to start worrying once nobody cares anymore.

Will that picture be in the P-38 cockpit by default? I tried to zoom in on the picture but it got too grainy to see the face clearly.

 

Sweet update BTW.
