Dear Friends,

New player controllable aircraft or vehicles aren’t ready yet, but we have decided to release the update 4.504 that improves many aspects of the sim. The main feature of this update is the increased visual detail of the landscape at close distances

................................
The second main feature is a nearly complete overhaul of the sound volume balance in the aircraft cockpits

................................
There are many other important changes as well, for instance, many graphical effects were improved like large structural fires in cities and more detailed tank cannon fire effects. Even the grass now bends when you fire the tank main gun! The full changelist follows:

Well, I just spent about 40 minutes zooming around Kuban listening to the new soundscape. The sound of rushing air alone is a huge improvement and given even more weight to an already fantastic aerodynamic simulation.

Very cool. I'll have to hop in the Jug tonight and see how loud it is vs the V12 aircraft. I didn't pay much attention to its volume before, but I'd guess it probably got quieter, internally.

 

I find myself wondering how loud a Beaufighter would be? I recall the thing had mufflers on it. I wonder if that would make a possible premium plane candidate? I recall they served all over the place.

I don't suppose a fix for the hurricane has been snuck in? I.e. nose pitching up when the flaps are deployed, otherwise it's Mary Poppins.

Ooooooo!

 

The image of the P-39 pilot exiting his burning plane is sublime! 

 

Oh and By the way....

 

56. The visibility range of large fires (static effects City_Fire, City_FireSmall, VillageSmoke and their new cyclic versions) has been increased to 100 km;
57. Settlement fire effects in Career, Quick Missions and tank campaigns won’t periodically disappear and reappear or ‘flip’ when you move the camera around them. These effects now illuminate the surroundings as well;
62. Сyclic settlement fire effects City_Fire_Loop, City_FireSmall_Loop and VillageSmoke_Loop won’t visibly disappear and reappear or ‘flip’ when you move the camera

 

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Why stereo if I have a 5.1 setup? Thanks for the update. I am so glad that the A20 bomb bay doors will be ripped off if you belly land with them down now. That was really bothering me!!!:rolleyes: LMAO!

Because the sim is designed for Stereo. Always been that way. If you force 5.1 sounds will likely  be missing.

Hello Freaks,

 

I'm really excited - the developer’s checkout work and an early Christmas present! Thank you - just as the chains fall on the Tiger I when driving, you don't want to have your fingers in between! Also the movement of the sloping towers - wonderfully implemented!

 

Good luck !

Tested right now on alpha IL2 Expert : the wind noise in cockpit is too high (tested in 190 A3). The motor sount can't be heared now on my game. Impossible to play long time or with sound shutted only.

 

May the problem is only for me, the others pilots said to me "no problem" for them. I restarted the game : no change. What can I do now?
