S! I checked the Arras map. See picture. Wheels still stuck in mud.

 

But........ I was able to take off and land five times with no plane damage.

 

Felt really good.

 

Things do get better.

New terrain isn’t out yet. You have been landing and taking off in the untouched pre-updated ground.

I guess the content is set so there is no room for wishes, but alas, I hope they implement the career mode to FC this time!

I've been worried about whether or not this would happen. Jason, you have made me a happy man.  :):):)

Yes, surely it is already  set (though just like WW2 I am partial to mid-war - teaser looks indeed to be late war) - fingers crossed that they put more consideration to plane set this time in creating a more authentic experience for missions and career (I guess we will know soon).

I would like to be the first one to tell the haters; "I f'n told you so."

 

Can I be the second one?

 

Thank you for sticking with us @Jason_Williams and devs, and to everyone in the community who has stuck with it too!

 

Yes, _(fill in the blank)_, there is a Santa Clause!

Genuine surprise...! And here I'd thought we'd been abandoned. 

Fingers crossed for the Alb D.III and Spad VII to make an appearance. I'd Love for the DeHav and Eindecker to reappear too. 

Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait.

Really glad to hear this news! Thanks Jason and team!

 

But the elephant in the room... will there be DM revisions?

 

I had to ask but I am really jazzed to hear of FC2 and am ready and eager to purchase.

HP 0-400 and Gotha!?

 

I sincerely hope so. Can't give the glorious Entente a big bomber without doing the same for the dastardly Hun!

 

To get us in the mood, here's a poem wot I wrote earlier:

 

And as I flew above the lines
upon my growling Gotha

The guns below all opened up
and blew my tail off. Bother...

 

Yeah, I know that 'Gotha' and 'bother' don't rhyme. Poetic license...

The Il-2 Great Battles facebook account replied to someone on there that Career mode is planned for FC2, but more details will come with the proper announcement.

Very happy for a FC2.  I'm OK with whatever is included as long as the FC series continues.  Hopefully some day in the future I'll be flying DH2's and E3's. :)

Great news. Its a beautiful day! Thanks @Jason_Williams.

The silhouettes hint at more a 1918 fleshing out than going earlier into 1917, which I'd prefer and I think gives greater scope for airwar progression and careers. I can't see any need for a D8, Central already have a armour- winged uber plane at all altitudes in the D7f! 

 

2 seater- wise,  we desperately need proper recon machines.  DfW and DH4 at least can do that as well as being effective light bombers. 

 

However, re Vonrd's elephant... if the DM isn't addressed,  much of the positive effort producing the second volume will be mitigated by continued complaints. 

 

I'll pre-order it day 1 anyway, and so will most of us, but please, please resolve the DM asap.

Can't wait! Unfortunately my HOTAS Warthog throttle died after a power cut, I thought I had moved it to a proper backup UPS, but sadly I was wrong :(. Just paid $50 for a replacement piece.

 

Nevertheless I will be putting $ for the preorder :).

This. 

It is certainly great that WWI is not forgotten by the devs, but I don't think that I'll be buying Vol.2 without DM and AI issues rectified...

New terrain will help new FiF or BA/BS missions on FC where you must land to capture/rescue people. 

 

 

Uhm, that looked like the Kuban map which has solid ground. Need to see it on Rhineland or Arras which is soggy ground.

 

S! I checked the Arras map. See picture. Wheels still stuck in mud.

 

But........ I was able to take off and land five times with no plane damage.

 

Felt really good.

I hope now is time (next patch changing the terrain ) and this issue with  boggy ground on whole Arras map will be fixed.

I hope 1C will find  resources for adding something completely new  in this    underappreciated genre .
