Dear friends,

IL-2 team reports that the new update 4.603 is released. It's a significant one for Flying Circus Vol.II - three airplanes are added to the Early Access program of this project at once.

.....................................

Also in this update is the long-awaited Collector Vehicle - German AA half-track Sd.Kfz.10/5. It was an interesting experience to develop: this is the first player controllable half-truck chassis in our sim. A lot of work went into ballistics data and other ammo parameters research. Our partners at Digital Forms did a stellar job at references research and creation of the 3D model and myriad of its parts based on them.

.....................................

Oyster_KAI improved all Flying Circus aircraft cockpits (both Vol.I and Vol.II) and Martin =ICDP= Catney created 4K quality external textures for the German Collector Plane Hs 129 B-2.

.....................................

And finally, Alexander =BlackSix= Timoshkov finished his new campaign "Steel Birds" about Fw 190 A-5 missions over the Kuban and it is available in the game now (you can get it on our website if you haven't done so already).

.....................................

Meanwhile, the work on Marshal multiplayer mode, fuel systems and drop tanks, environment graphics, Normandy and Western Front WW1 maps continues and we hope to show you the results sooner than later. This update contains many changes in addition to mentioned above:

It's there, check the downloads section in case Steam scheduled it for a convenient time like 3AM.

I'm excited to try out the new additions to the sim but also great news about Oyster_Kai updating the FC cockpits to 4k and IDCP updating the the external textures for the Duck. Big respect to the rest of the team for the more subtle improvements and to those doing the less sexy work of fixing bugs etc.

 

Great work guys, much appreciated.  👍

Anybody knows if this patch breaks the tracks? Can I playback tracks from the pervious version after this patch?

It's great thanks, too bad I was expecting to see the drop tanks (literally) but it's invisible (it's available on the G6 late)

About the career mode improvements, will AI ground attackers use their bombs on the intended target instead of AAA?

 

I'm tired of seeing my teammates spend all their MG ammo on KV-1s or buildings...

The new naval graphic effects give some hope of an aeronaval new expansion!

@Han Thanks for the update! Can you please elaborate on the following:

 

11. Adjusted the maximum wing lift of the Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib. The flight model of the aircraft was reconfigured in such a way that most of the flight characteristics of the aircraft (speed, rate of climb, control stick balancing positions, roll angular velocities) practically did not change;

 

 

Was the lift increased or decreased? What was the catalyst for this change? Any word on the unusual rolling tendency?

Thanks for the update. The DH4 looks great. Though shame the clear vision panels were not added, that wing is rather limiting when in combat.

 

I've got some funky-ness going on with some user interface parts becoming semi-transparent after running the update.

 

 

No fairing for the camera seems to be added when you choose that modification?

Ermagrd!  Holy unexpected update Batman!  I thought we were delayed!?

I think some of the recent threads that contained Star Trek references have paid off. Make the delay seem longer than expected then drop the update unexpectedly. Scotty would be proud.

 

Looks like an excellent update. Eager to try it out tonight. Thx team.

Likewise. Although my "fire all" still does not seem to work.

The new dive-bombing mechanism in action in career mode (this was recorded in a late beta version, but it shouldn't be changed in the release version):

The DH4 is a really interesting plane. Definitely going to need some time to get the best out of it.

 

I do seem to be getting an odd stuttering in the guns when I fire. I'll need to do more testing to figure out what, if anything, is actually going on there.

As I understand it, they ended up delaying the drop tanks and releasing the rest of the patch without them.

It wasn’t meant as a criticism.

Wasn't meant as a criticism either. I think it merged posts my. Was just saying what I'd heard about the patch delay reduction.

 

Given the relative impacts of the changes, I think it was a good call too.
