Great job guys!

 

It's a short dev diary, but there are very many interesting details. I'm excited to see these things become reality.

Very tasty indeed, the C-47 looks gorgeous. Hope we can fly it one day.

 

On the other hand: Another free campaign for Bodenplatte? Marshal being finished? great news!

Very good! :)

The new fuel system is going to be a new challenge.

Thank you Han and thank you to your team!

 

Great news as always and you keep your promises too. I only really hope you lied to us concerning the C-47 only being AI - that would be the

best swindle to us! Still hoping...

Additionally, there is some progress towards the completion of the Air Marshal feature which has taken much longer than planned. We’ve also had to build up technical capacity in the field of map production, which is necessary to implement everything planned for the Normandy landscape. And as always improvements to the AI for both aircraft and ground vehicles continue.

[...] deepening the model of aircraft fuel systems is in the research and prototyping stage.

 

Probably the most interesting pieces of info.

The C47 will be a great addition to the western front, expanding the types of missions that can be built. 

 

Looking forward to Nvidia's launch of new GPUs so I can get back to flying.

Or was there?

3D models of several aircraft are at various stages of development - the Hurricane, ...

 

Now I see why it's been quiet around here... lots going on with BoN. Thanks for the update!

Thanks for the update, short but a few interesting titbits in there. I’m glad the Hurricane got a mention, (I was getting worried!), fuel system upgrade is cool n the iconic shots of the C47.... beautiful!

C-47, nice!  That's also probably the  most common aircraft in the game that most of us have also been on a real-life flight!

"Also, as a result of recent discussions in the community, work is underway to improve general aircraft visibility, which we hope will appear to be both realistic and more comfortable for players. This may require more than one future update to fully conquer, but we’ll see."

 

Thank You!

Thanks for the update.

 

Can you please define what precisely "G-6 Late" means?

 

Does it mean simply new canopy and tall tail? Or does it include all options for actual G-6 - MW50; /AS series etc?

Always liked the G6 AS in the original IL2, one of the few 109s I flew with any regularity.

Excuse the ignorance, but what exactly is the "Air Marshal" feature?

Maybe my English can confuse myself, but when I read about « map production », does it means what I think it means??? 😁

 

Does it means, us, missions and campaigns designers, will be able to work and modify the maps???

Improved AI & Visibility, can't wait to see the improvements, this will make me buy & play IL2 BOX products again.

The C47 is really cute, unlike the ugly Ju 52.

Almost certainly no :(. He's just talking about what they are doing to make the Normandy map themselves.

Superb that C-47.

I cross fingers for a nice paratrooper animation with the automatic chute opening cords that then would float from the open door. I know I ask too much.

Nice to see you are still working with the Air Marshal system, features like that should make servers more interesting.

Does anyone mind sharing more information about what the Air Marshal is supposed to be when released?

My group is in dire need of a radar system for BoX for when we do a Channel Front/Normandy campaign but before getting all my hopes up I'd like to know more about the planned features of the system.

Most importantly: is it going to model the curvature of the earth e.g are low flying aircraft going to be spotted later than high contacts?

Is it going to model the delay which plagued radar systems of the period.

Is the radar range going to be based on historical radar positions or is it going to affect all contacts regardless of where they at?

And most importantly - is it also going to be available to use in Kuban which saw significant GC use by each side?
