Developer Diary, Part 64

Recommended Posts

64

 

 

To all who have been watching how our project evolves and have taken part in the Early Access including those that are labeled as Founders - we are glad to inform you that we’re entering the final stage of development of IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad.

 

Eighteen months ago in December 2012 we announced the start of a new flight sim project and now you can see what exactly that project is. In February 2013 development started, and six months after that we decided to provide the community an opportunity to support our enterprise via the Founder program. Thus, the game became available for sale in July 2013. It was a bold and peculiar move for us and for flight sim fans as well. We hoped that our adult and mature community would understand the specifics and decide to help us in our courageous endeavor. And many of you did, helping us get to this important point in the development process.

The next step is the Beta version. Looks like we made it, guys! And congratulations on the V-E day!

 


Today we give you soviet fighter La-5 for the early access. It's one of the two premium planes in our project. This means that golden Founders and early access owners will be able to try the plane in a few hours, but players with Standard edition already have time to plan purchasing La-5 in future. Both La-5 and Fw 190 A-3 will be available in our store in the end of June.

 

Please, DO NOT backup your Input folder this time. Older version of Input will not work. Just let the game update everything automatically.

Thanks guys. Also in this version we prepared trimmers and manual prop pitch for German planes.  

 

P.S. This new technologies just implement but not tuned. So expect some glitches or missing elements.

Thanks for the update.

 

I'm very curious how the La-5 performs and behaves in BoS and if it will replace the Yak-1 as my favorite plane in BoS. :biggrin:

Sounds positive.  The tweaking and fine tuning always take the most amount of time.  Great to get trim this week.

Zak does this mean we need a fresh install for todays patch release as the only time i've seen you say not to backup the input is when we need to reinstall?

 

Otherwise excelent news about the LA5 and manual prop pitch and trim. Congratulations to you guys, BOS is really shaping up to be my prefered sim :biggrin:
