View Full Version : What do you think is the one new aircraft in 4.09?

From what I can determine in the many posts about 4.09, we will get one new aircraft.

Any thoughts what it might be?

Serious enquiries only. No spam or witless comments please.

There is no point to this thread unless a beta-tester or somebody 'in the know' gives a definative answer.

But I foresee links to the lost Fokker, Avia and Cw-21B WIP screenshots followed by wild speculations of Spitfire XIV, B-17 and Gloster Meteor...

(If there is a new flyable, I predict it will be an I-16 field mod with boosted performance. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif)

I don't think there will be any new aircraft in the patch. Just a few bugs corrected, the new maps, and maybe a last but fast attempt to save file integrity...

I doubt it. I'm almost positive that I saw a post by Oleg on the 1C forums that said there wouldn't be anymore a/c additions.

But, if there was a new a/c, I would guess it would be something that wouldn't take much work to add, like a variant. F4U-4, P-47N, a number of Spitfire versions. I think those looking for a completely new addition might be left in the cold.

Correct 20mm for late 109s,dm/pk issue of the ju88,d/m of the mossie,cockpit of the P47,cockpit of the IAR,ordnance for the 109 F,ordnance for the 190D9,change of viewpoint for the 190,ammo of the macchis....etc etc etc etc.Just a few of the small insignificant issues that, if fixed,would finish the series off nicely.We won't even mention the Pacific.

I wish people would stop moaning about the Lerche. If you don't like it, don't fly it! We did get the Arado-234 , Ki-27, Il-10 didn't we? Some people act like 1946 is just a pile of ****.

And I keep seeing these 'Oleg and his star wars fantasies' style jokes that are largely in bad taste if you ask me.

LEBillfish
12-17-2007, 07:25 AM
Don't get me wrong, I like early to mid war....Ki-27 was an awesome addition in my mind, and though late war N1K2.....However, the 1946 planes I found pretty neat as well. Never knew the prop-jet hybrids existed, and some of the new jets were very interesting.

I've yet to fly the Lerche, yet what a great addition!...More so in that the team made it quite clear what would have had to be done to make it fly.

So as to mosts complaints about 1946, and though preferring the older stuff....I still feel the 1946 prototype and fantasy planes were an awesome addition. Well worth it, and if 1946 had been sold seperately from SoM, I'd still of bought it and been glad I did.

foxyboy1964
12-17-2007, 07:35 AM
1946 was a great addition for the improved performance alone. It runs much smoother than the patched version, on my rig anyway. The extra planes were the icing on the cake.

You sure were getting your hopes up for a serious discussion, weren't you, Blairgowrie?!

I'm not going to hold my breath on 4.09, just like I won't hold my breath regarding SOW's release until I see min. specs released.

If you ask a question like yours here, knowing that a couple people who are beta testers may respond, you will receive a plethora of goofy responses.

My hope for map/plane - The Slot, and the Lancaster or B-17, but that'll never happen. IL2 is history, the community will continue strong until SOW finally comes out, and then most people will go on to it or the next WW2 sim that comes down the pike.

This is the way of the WW2 sim world...

'46 was a good add on, but what I'd really like in a "fantasy" add on is "1935". A theoretical conflct witout Spits, 109s, A6Ms etc...

Spanish Civil War:

07-1936
The war starts with obsolescent Nieuport 62 and Breguet XIX in both sides, some old planes (Bristol Bulldogs and Avro 504!) and testing prototypes join soon. At this stage, the air war is an appendix of post-WW1 air technology.

08-1936 to 10-1936
The Nationalists receive German and Italian aid. Fiat CR.32s and G.50s, Ju 52s, He 51s, Breda bombers, rule the skies. The Republicans receive Potez bombers and put everything they have in the air, PWS, Loire 46, Dewoitine D.510, Hawker Spanish Fury... a short but intense, and varied scenario.

11-1936 to 02-1937
The USSR decides to intervene. SB-2 bombers, Polikarpov I-15s and early I-16s put the Nationalists in problems. The Republicans also manage to successfully employ Grumman FF-1 as close support aircraft.

03-1937 to 04-1939
The coflict gets -even more- ugly. The Legion Kondor arrives Spain, to both help the Nationalists, and test the new LW types. Type after type and the prototypes of the until now secret Bf 109s, He 112s, He 111s, Do 17s, Hs 123s and Ju 87s. To fight them, both older and newer types of Polikarpov fighters (I-152 and late I-16s) are employed in increasing numbers by the Nationalists. At this stage, air technology is the one in early WW2.

NOW TELL ME YOU ARE NOT DROLLING ABOUT THIS!

IMO if BoB offers plausible transonic modelling and CEM that actually rewards engine management rather than engine abuse then full-switch IL2 will die almost instantly because people going back will suddenly feel as though they're playing an arcade game.

Meanwhile, since it's basically a given that BoB will be much prettier than IL2, it seems likely that early adopters looking for eye-candy will be early adopters.

So within a few months I expect the darkening embers of the IL2 community to be dominated by fanatical fans of non-BoB aeroplanes who aren't bothered about the CEM & transonic issues associated with IL2*, and those lacking the funds to upgrade their systems.

Oh, and the militant Spitfire Haters of course.

*ie IL2 drivers!

from a recent russian forum post by oleg...

"В общем так. Будет 4.09, но не знаю еще когда. Там будет защита от хакеров нового типа. Вопрос в том, что это может иногда ухудшить скорость передачи данных. Мы могли это сделать и раньше, но не делали именно поэтому.
Мы могли вообще все на компьютере юзера проверять, но это было бы противозаконно (хотя наиболее просто и действенно...).
В общем мешают нам нормально БоБ-ом заниматься... Готовились только дополнение выпустить, а теперь придеться отложить... пока не сделаем, что сказал.
Не люблю я читеров.... И Ил-2 не предназначался для моддеров... Поэтому так долго и живет в онлайне..."

roughly translates as.... (ivan can maybe be more accurate)

"So - there'll be 4.09 patch, don't know how soon yet. 4.09 patch will have protection from this hack, but it will sometimes increase traffic load. We could do it before, but did not do it for this reason.
The easiest way - do some checks at client side, it will be very effective but illegally.
All this problems delay readiness of addon for IL-2 and BOB"
