What I miss is the subtle green tinge shining through the snow here and there on the winter map. As was shown in early WIP version.

I suppose the early winter version is out of the question now?

EDIT:

Something like my crappy fotoshopped screenshot for instance.

Fantastic work! Outstanding. Allready started two carrers: Tempest & Lightning. Super fun. Thank you devs!!

BTW, I think Im the only one that finds the new clouds a tad too polished/artifisial. I will keep them nevertheless because planes shimmer much less against them.

Maybe a task for modders? I'd like to see that as a map repaint. But I wonder why they changed it, perhaps they did some research and wanted to make it closer to real conditions at the time.

My install appeared to stop about a 1/4 inch from the end. I decided to wait.

 

After about five minutes the install line advance slightly. Ah.... I continued to wait. A few minutes later it completed the installation.

 

Perhaps you need to wait it out a bit when installing. Good luck. :salute:

From what I've seen on WWII Ardennes aerial photographs trees are better now: not snow covered like in WIP version.

But the fields, I have my doubts.

A map repaint?

Who's gonna call May-bug? :biggrin:

Did anyone had a chance to check how prop spinning looks in VR? Is it better now?

I did try the career in Bodenplatte  it is really very realistic!

My previous tentative was the Moscow campaign and I say this one is even more addictive.

Try this and you shall be hooked by the realism and play-ability of this campaign.

Great realism and immersion.  :salute:

You find your planes under "Entente" and "Central" in quick mission builder.

You can choose any of the maps to fly on, but "Arras" is the map made for FC.

In multiplayer it's not always easy to find a server dedicated to FC although, if you find the "SYN" server, you're in the right place.

 

Have a nice day.

Congrats on the milestone! 

Here is hoping for 5.001, 6.001, and many more!!

 

Looking forward to the announcement of thr next theatre. Jason, I'd love to have another one of those Q&A sessions on TS, those are always fun!

 

Time to enjoy BP now, build a million missions, and enjoy the career mode.

On Rheinland Winter, the planes are became too hard to see. Around 2/3000m above only, we can see easily tracers and flak but often not planes. It's a problem imo (seen on Combat Box server few time ago). All sides spent large time to find other planes but they was there and so close however

Have you fixed the stuttery gunner animation on two-seaters in multiplayer?

 

This was from the previous version:

Little bugs:

On career, medals and awards are marked "Null" for US and English pilots. Germans are still ok;

With the Spitfire, whan putting on flight lights, it occurs in German, not in French (I'm playing in French);

When selecting Free French Squadron, all my wards are English and have an Scottish or English background. Don't you think it's possible to script a French story for a character?;

There's a tree right on the last approach of the runway in Florennes (house of the P38 career first mission)

I can't see the FC career, is that normal?

Seems somebody knew I was gonna have b-day tomorrow and gave me some early present 💗

But guys, where do I find the Flying Circus campaign? When I start a career, I only see the WWII-era ones ... 😁

Happy b-day!

When guests come at your party and you start acting weird after an hour cos you want them to go home so you can play newly released il2 career ;)

Priceless!

I suppose the early winter version is out of the question now?

I am sure some skillfull modders will take care of this.

Those were not the conditions during the Bulge, so I can live without it.

If it comes later as an option, great.

Was there much air play during the bulge? Mainly supply drops I suppose.. ?   

Can we have any missions in game for this?

Lots to digest! Here is hoping BoBP is a big success. 

 

Quick bug note: the changes to Tempest's stall speed not yet entered into the specifications data tab in the game, at least in the SI units version.

Thanks for the update is what I was going to say until I thought ow it is a release. SO THANKS FOR THAT.

 

One strange thing that I have found is that if you set the clouds to extreme it actually increases my FPS and reduces stutters???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

 

 

Please try it and see what mileage you get?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

 

 

Maybe something about the difference of AA between the clouds and aircraft if it is decreased makes it more efficient??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

In the quick mission setup screen, are you able to choose the Arras map in the drop-down list on the top right? That's one indication that you have purchased and activated Flying Circus.

This ridiculous bug may still occur. We don’t know the cause yet. It is annoying we agree. 
 

Jason

 

Yes, still there, but you guys have done a wonderful job. Thanks. I am sure this will be fixed soon. I noticed that the bug was not present in the record of the flight I made. The pilot was completely in the cockpit in the record itself.
