Zak, about the cockpit, is there any specific reason why there is no crash pad on the Revi? 

 

Cheers

Spelling mistake on the rear side of the canopy. Should be "Im Probefall", not "Jm Probefall".

 

I suggest to fix the mistake first and delay the release. :biggrin:

 

Looks good though.

The trailer might be standard for the industry, but in my opinion it's a misrepresentation of the game. You should sell your product, not a CGI trailer.

That's exactly what they are doing, SELLING their product.  There is nothing wrong with creating a cinematic trailer. Trailers are almost always enhanced and do not represent the gameplay experience exactly, not sure where you got those expectations. 

 

The ba.. Ba... Baa.... The bar! Lol just just messing great cockpit hoping to fly out soon

Oh wow, the bar is there.

 

Can someone explain the bar joke to me, I'm a bit new to these panes. Thanks!

In this another Fw 190 cockpit picture, although a bit blurry show "I" like the in game. Font style?

I know that picture indeed. And in modded IL2 the Fw-190 has that same "J" on it. :biggrin:

On the warning it should be "Im" and not "Jm". "Jm" is not a German word.

"Im" stands for "In dem" which means "In the" in English.

 

The image you show is from a Fw-190 which is restored in the U.S.

Probably the American restoration team is not familiar with German language. That could explain the error.

Well, I can't imagine the Fw-190 in the German museum I showed on page 2 has this kind of mistakes.

Windshield bar in the 190 could potentially block the Revi sight picture.

Windshield bar in the 190 could potentially block the Revi sight picture.

The joke goes a little deeper than just the bar blocking the Revi. There was a long standing disagreement between the original IL2 users and the previous development manager, Oleg Maddox. To the best of my memory he insisted the bar was correct and due to the lack of refraction in a two dimensional image there wasn't a way to create the proper height of the bar and still be schematically correct. Unfortunately it affected site accuracy and especially for lead or snap shots. With the FW being such a large barrel-cowled front, visibility was already at a premium. This argument went on for years and it just became a joke because it was never going to be changed.

Is the intro video a cinematic or is that really how the sim is going to look in the release?  The tracers were wonderful but what really "wowed" me was the ground activity on the airfield during the attack.  Will we really see ground crews and pilots running around?

The volume and realism of the smoke was also awesome.  Please tell me that the release will look this good and the intro isn't just a cinematic.

The video was probably used as a cinematic, not to show what the REAL game will look like, it would be sweet with ground crews and such. But i doubt that we will see them ingame. 

AND WHERE IS MY UPDATE! My patience is running out  :unsure:

Hello Brad :biggrin:   'Fraid it's a bit of CGI overload for "promotional" purposes so what you see in the cinematic is not what you'll see in the game.

 

Game itself looks freakin' awesome. Just not like this intro video. :)

Dang!  I will never forget the let down when CFS3 came out using that incredible cinematic trailer.  I thought the sim was going to look like that and it wasn't even close :(

Oh, man!  Come on devs, don't do this to me.  You set the bar (not the 190 bar ) for this awesome sim with the trailer.  Now you gotta deliver ;)

I'll remember that in Moscow is 23:00, ie one hour before midnight, and there is one guy (or more) preparing the update right now, at this hour, so respect to the DEV team

 

Thanks
