Developer Diary, Part 61

Hi Everybody

 

Today’s Dev Blog is entirely devoted to the upcoming game version which goes straight to Early Access. But some important news comes first. The Early Access servers will be open 24/7 starting this week. Two weeks of challenging tests and daring debugging sessions showed us that we can handle it now and you can actually play it. Game and specifically multiplayer access will be permanent with exceptions for short updates or maintenance breaks. The number of MP servers will remain limited for some more time - we still may need stress tests which are only possible while the number of servers is limited. However, one extra server has been started earlier this week - it’s the Duel Server with a proper duel mission running on it. By the way, thanks again to those in the community who helped make this community request a reality.

 

Today we give you the Pe-2, the first two-engine aircraft in the project. I bet this is something you’ve been looking forward to, because there’re so many bomber fans on our forums. The plane is pretty much complete, but the bomb sight is not ready yet and it will be added later. Note that it shouldn’t stop you from using it as a dive bomber which the Pe-2 was. Of course, the Peshka will be offered with all her unlocks available. It will also be put into multiplayer missions, so get ready to gather your own crew including navigator and radio-operator.

 

Other changes that have been included into the fresh build are small, but numerous corrections in the AAA behavior and a correction of the LaGG’s and Yak’s excessive nosing-over tendency while braking.

 

You’ve also been asking us to show some La-5 pics! Well, here they are along with screenshots of the clouds that we'll add to the game pretty soon. And Pe-2 wallpapers.

How could I forgot about the upcoming PE-2!

Completely removed from my memory during the week so I didn't expect these good news. And new, improved clouds on the way, too!
Very very good. Thank You Team

Nice to see the La-5 coming along and the clouds look very cool! With the new version of clouds is it possible to have different clouds at different altitudes or are they all at one altitude like the RoF clouds are?

We'll see about them when they are ready to be addd to early access. At this moment they look so realistic (to me) that I can't tell if they are same or simillar on different altitudes - they are just natural, and I haven't paid attention :)

Those clouds look quite blurry and white on those pictures, but I'm still looking forward to the new weather system. And hooray for the Pe-2!

Looking forward to the Peshka... have you fixed the taxi bug mentioned in the live stream yet? Looks like there hasn't been changes with the last friday's update and the following small update that came afterwards.

Fantastic! Now just need more than three people in a US server at a time.... Would love to do a formation JABO run with a foursome of PE2's.... With of course an escort or two and comms in use.... No one is ever on TeamSpeak though.

Sperber - perhaps the update hasn't been completely finished off yet. They usually announce in this thread when the newest version becomes available.

Awwww come on!

How splendid is this game progressing? Another plane, and the first twin-engine plane. Can't wait for the FW190 pictures and how about the 109-G2? Give me teh Gustav, Hans! Schnell! :D

 

Anyway, I can't wait to get out of the lab and start downloading this patch. :)

 

 

S!
