Question: Are there any plans to revisit some collectors like Spitfire V? Mods like clipped wings, guns or later engine would be a nice to fit in a variety of scenarios.

 

I doubt this will happen. Spit Vb is likely done. It's very hard for us to go back and update older planes, that's why I have been having us make as many options as we can at the outset for new planes. However, new 4K skins are coming for it finally thanks to ICDP.

Can it be done and if so do you have an ETA for improving netcode and allowing more than 84 players per server please?

 

More than 84 is likely not going to happen. I need a dedicated net code programmer and they are in short supply and the way we model things may always be incongruent with so many users. I prefer to try and make 84 players at a time as solid as possible at this point. This something I'd like to change for a future engine, but how that will happen is still unknown.

Oh no 😯 

 

That's quite a bummer about the Marshal mode. Hopefully they are into greener pastures now. 

 

 

 

My question would be what's your personal flight simulator setup? 

 

Happy birthday!

My question. What is the tech/improvement you'd like most to see implemented in IL2 (and of which you know it's possible, or at least not impossible)? So I'm not talking about new aircraft/theatres here (PTO;)) but rather about technical stuff. E.g. massed formations, MSFS-like graphics, wake turbulence, improved 3d resolution for the older BOS models, you name it. There's no need for any actual plans to do such a thing.

 

Would love to improve our older vehicles models (especially our trains) and some older plane models. Also, bigger better clouds (this will likely get done at some point) and improved sky domes.

Do you know if, theoretically, the data would be available for a hypothetical fall of France scenario? or otherwise perhaps a continuation war one, with Fokkers and Gladiators and other wonderful planes, but I shouldnt get greedy and stick to one question

 

Battle of France is technically possible, but would it sell well? And making any early war French plane would be a real challenge.

Happy B-Day Jason !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😁

 

my question for you is about one of my fav planes.

 

Are you aiming to make the B-25 flyable? If the main roadblock is due to multiple gunner positions, have you consider limiting access to only few of them (or none, and leave the pilot/bomber position only)?

  • Would you consider add Italian Theater of Operation ?
    • In terms of planes set this could be obtained with a nice mix of existing assets and new ones 

 

Thank you!

 

 

Yes, but the map is tough to make work and Italian birds are harder to research, but it's possible. I love the Med and North Africa theaters. Big reason why I supported Team Fusion's work. Will we ever go there? Unclear. There is a fun Mod for Kuban that sort of brings NA to life in our sim.

Happy Birthday Jason!!

 

With the team hard at work on the normandy and FC2 aircraft is there a chance that we could see a B25 Collector plane get announced at the tail end of normandy and FC2 development?

 

On a side note thank you and team for all the hard work and love you put into the sim, the great battle series has revived my love for flight sims.

Question - How are DLCs  and collector releases typically decided on ? Do user requests/polls hold any weight? Who determines, "what will sale well?"

Wrote 38, this does not apply to the post above.

 

Hopefully some day we will get to the Pacific. I never stop trying to make that happen.

My question:

Would you consider making a fictional game campaign using WW2 airplanes and the IL-2 Sturmovik engine (or an updated one using IL-2’s flight and damage modelling combined with a “real world” platform like Cesium), perhaps air mercenary pilots with a home airfield and dynamic campaign missions to make money and access more planes, and so on? Or do you prefer to remain in the historical realm?

 

I doubt we would ever be able to merge our engine components with an off the shelf engine.

Happy birthday Jason! and congratulations truly on your personal milestone :salute: must be quite a satisfying achievement especially when thinking back through all the up's and down's that no doubt have come with it.

 

Sorry to hear about the sit-rep on marshall mode and the person leaving, however on a positive note; it is great to hear about the progress on the fuel systems and in general to be seeing this flight-sim soar to new heights.

 

All the best,

Now the game is running with a single core of the CPU

Is there any plan to optimize CPU multi-core computing?

This will make my computer smoother

This isn't an accurate statement.

I was thinking about a question for you Jason. I know you talked about it in the past on Stormbirds, but could we expect some "crazy" collector planes like a Do335, Ta-152H, Meteor or P-80 in the next years? I know those types were not commonly used, but they would be lovely to have.

A follow up question to this, hope that's fine.

 

Would it be possible for the community to help out with this process? Let's say that if the 3D modeling of the cockpit, interior and gunner positions is the main problem time/resources wise, is the team using some industry standard software and data format for the 3D models? If that is the case, how difficult would it be for someone to try to model at least a part of this, provided he/she would be willing to do it for free?

I determine what to make with input from my team and what the community seems to desire and of course sales data from existing modules and aircraft. That's a big part of my job, applying my experience in the marketplace to find products and content that will help sales. The loudest voices on the forum do not make up the entire decision making process. Often behavior on the forum belies actual customer behavior in the marketplace. Not every decision I've made is golden , but the business has grown considerably since 2016 and content has expanded greatly. And learning from mistakes is part of the journey. I always want to make more content, features and tech believe me..

Any chances of building a Pe-3, Bf-110F, and Tu-2S in future Eastern Front installments?

 

Another Eastern Front product is possible, but right now just focused on Normandy and FCII. We will have 12 months to go till completion on BON and FCII.

Would love these planes in a late war scenario and they are possible to build. Several late war Soviet planes would be great too.

Sorry, we only prefer to work with qualified modelers. Our work with part-time 3D modelers in the community has proven to not be a good path to follow. If a real pro with a real resume in this industry would emerge and demonstrate to us he or she can actually do the work, I'd be interested. Also, making a cockpit for us is much, much more than just making a mesh and textures. I'm not interested in partial solutions or meshes.

Red Baron and 386 PC (...at least I think it was first real sim :good:

 

Happy Birthday!!

 

And Thank you for making best WW2 flight simulation so far!  and WW1 flight sim and Tank sim (Sorry forgot those) 

 

How we can help you to make "Forgotten Battles"  to IL-2 GB series? 

 

=  Early war Finnish Air Force planes ( Blenheim, Brewster, Fiat G.50, Morane MS.406, Gladiator, Fokker DXXI and maybe I-153 & I-15bis for USSR.

forgot Curtiss Hawk...it is also early war French plane

1. Is it possible to even more reduce CPU load in this game engine or only with engine 2.0?

 

2. Is there a chance that we will see Mercedes D.IIIau engine at least for Fokker D.VII and Pfalz D.XII ?

 

Thanks!

Happy birthday Jason, have a good one :salute:

 

What part aspect of IL-2 GBS are you proudest of?

 

The product itself aside, just the fact that we are survivors in a very tough genre and we have overcome a lot of negativity to make a pretty damn awesome series of products. New content is always a fun shiny thing to be proud of, but I am also very proud of all our departments who do the unglamorous grunt work for all the features we have and make it work. Bugs will always happen, but I know how complex this work is and I listen to the team as much as possible and know how hard they work.

Happy birthday dude! Huge admirer of your passion for the sim/genre as a whole, and your level of communication with the community.

 

Any hint on when the next update is coming? Absolutely itching for that Spit XIV :')

 

In addition, when BoN's dev cycle is complete, are there plans to potentially expand on Channel Front content (say, 1941-1943) through collector's vehicles? Or is that something that'll be left to Team Fusion in CLoD?

Thanks for the reply. As you surely already know, the Italian community is a big one and very passionate; in case you ever consider gathering data on Italian planes and historical facts & locations, I believe there would be eagerness to help :)

If you want mode cool things, CPU load will only increase.

Yes, it's in the general plan for later in this FCII dev. cycle, but how it manifests itself is unknown. Han knows more about when it's possible to build.

Next update in about two weeks. No joke.

 

I don't know how much we'll focus on the Channel Front after Normandy. I would love a couple new planes that participated in that theatre. That much I know.

2. Is the bubbletop Spit in the teams consideration for a collector plane?

Jason, my question please:

Will we be able (and if, when) to control more systems, buttons and switches in aircrafts?

 

explanation:

-excluding new fuel systems

-like magnetos, gun sight on/off, etc, etc, etc...

-Not like DCS, but something between the current state and DCS (Like CloD possibly)

1. Probably not. We like the single CPs we do. More flexible and easier to market. 

 

2. Mmm... cool plane, but not sure it's resources well spent. I'd rather plug a hole in the plane-set somewhere else, unless we had a bigger late-war scenario that could justify this plane.
