Well, I got a hands-on look at BoS. I'd say that's pretty big news!  :biggrin:

Thanks for posting that Manni, great news and pleased with the release pack, though i will be getting the collectors edition. Sounds like he was impressed! though thought the news would be posted here first.

<This! Now everything thats missing is the possibility to preorder the collectors edition.

Yeah, whats wrong with the devs forum?  From the report;

 

The first mission was loaded and we saw the landscape, cities and villages, which be assured look really good from every altitude. Uneven terrain caused by snowdrifts, riverbanks and small hills are visible from down low to 10k which gives the landscape a natural look.

All this was run on a current average system and there was no noticeable hit on performance. Not when we moved the mouse in free-view mode like crazy or zoomed in and out of the city of Stalingrad. Stalingrad itself is modeled 1 on 1 with every building placed exactly like in the real world and having their own damage level. I guess the Pilots from ???

Glad you guys liked it!

 

For those that don't know - Jason and I live about 20 minutes apart from each other, so we get to hang out quite a bit. Loft was in town for....something... ;), so he gave me a really nice intro to everything they've done so far. He's a great guy to talk with, and it's plain to see that him and the team really want to give everyone a great gaming experience.

 

I can't go into much detail about what I saw, since I'm under NDA, but suffice it to say the game is looking absolutely great. There's nothing to be worried about IMO, and if you enjoyed the original IL2, you'll certainly enjoy BoS, and all the more.  :)

Hey, that's my stick, a glorious MS SW FFB2, in the background! Hope that means the team are working to get the FFB effects properly implemented in the sim. Crossing fingers! :)

Hey guys,

 

Manni has done a lot for ROF and he is tight with the team. He visited our Moscow office and he learned much. He spoke a bit too much. It wasn't an official release. Luke also got to see some special stuff for his tremendous help with ROF as well.

 

Loft is on an excellent adventure in the USA this week. Some info on that later.

 

Now back to the blackjack table.

cool . . .

 

My heart flipped when I speed / scan read the thread and saw " P-39 " but on the slower read (2nd pass)  it was probably referring to rate of fire for 20mm as Il-2 1946's P-39 37mm . ..

 

darn.

 

But p-39 will come along soon . . . as the subsequent sequels make their way . . .

 

 

that's awesome you guys got to taste the alpha ness.

Might be a bit OT.I can't say how trustworthy the yesterdays plane list was, but I was wondering if the devs have ever thought (sorry could not find a statement via the search function, if there was such please send me the link) about romanian Bf-109 E-3 and E-4, respectively. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I remember some romanian Emils to be active in this area in 1942 and since we have a nice emil model from BoB... ?!

the Luftwaffe used much more Emils in that time , in its ground attack groups ;)
