Post subject: 4.12 Development Updates

A little reminder that work is still being done on future upgrades. Cool

Here is the link to the Daidalos Teams original thread.
4.12 development updates: forum.1cpublishing.eu/...hp?t=31724



Dear Il-2 fans,

with the bug fix patch 4.11.1 completed we are now focussing on development of 4.12. We plan to complete it some time this year. We will frequently inform you about major and minor features, to keep you entertained.

Updates:

Flyable planes:
Hawk 75 (Finnish version)
Ki-45 Kai Hei
Ki-45 Kai Tei

AI improvements:
Taxi to take off

Facelifts:
P-38 cockpit repaint

Miscellaneous:
Change in scoring system - shared kills



Update May 4th, 2012

Our first update probably isn't much of a surprise for anyone who's been following this board, but we still want to officially announce it. Patch 4.12 will add a cockpit to the Hawk 75 we already have as an AI plane, and make it flyable. The cockpit will be for the Finnish version. Finland acquired and operated more than 40 Hawks throughout the war.

Update May 11th, 2012

This weeks update shows a little change in the scoring system. Patch 4.12 will introduce shared kills, which was historical practice in many air forces and has been requested by the community. It will no longer be the last pilot to put in a shot which gets all the credit. The below video shows an example from offline play.

Shared Kill
Standard Definition: youtu.be/u1sE7Ea_FdY

High Definition (720): youtu.be/u1sE7Ea_FdY?hd=1



Update May 18th, 2012

Today we are presenting an new feature for the AI, which will be included in patch 4.12. It will be possible to have AI taxi for take off on the airfield. This feature will work with spawning from stationary planes as well as with normal spawning. The mission builder has to set the route to the runway, and it works on any type of airfield. Below a video showing how it might look.

Taxi to take off
Standard Definition: youtu.be/-FsifmxIa_8

High Definition (720): youtu.be/-FsifmxIa_8?hd=1



Update May 25th, 2012

Today's update show one of the smaller projects that will find their way into 4.12 - the repainted cockpit for the P-38. Cockpit updates are among the most frequent requests we are getting, so, here is one.

Update May 31st, 2012

This week we'd like to announce that the Ki-45 Kai Hei and the Ki-45 Kai Tei, that have been added as AI planes in 4.11, will receive a cockpit and be flyable in 4.12.

The below screenshots show the cockpit, the gunner with the unique gun training mechanism of the Ki-45's rearward gun, a shot of what the big nasty 37mm cannon can do, and in case you're wondering what the second gunsight on top of the canopy frame is doing, a shot of the slanted guns installed in the Tei models fuselage as well as an idea of how to use them.

All screenshots are work in progress.

Update July 13th, 2012 - Part 1
Source: forum.1cpublishing.eu/...post444168

This week update will contain a bit more pictures, since the last update is already quite some time ago. It will be made in four parts.

Part 1:
We are happy to announce the often requested rework of the P-40E (and following) series - you know: the 'upward bent wings issue'.
In fact this is a completely new model, made from scratch by our member 'Macwan'. (note: all pictures are WIP shots!)

Update July 13th, 2012 - Part 2
Source: forum.1cpublishing.eu/...post444171


Part 2
Lets present a few more pics, to show the detail, that goes into such work.

And because this question may raise up: No - the old skins will not match anymore. The decision was made, because the old mapping was awfull. So this model got a full new mapping - no shared parts (like half of lower side mirrored) anymore.

Update July 13th, 2012 - Part 3
Source: forum.1cpublishing.eu/...post444172

Part 3
Additional to the two versions of the Ki-45 Kai (as AI) - released with 4.11 - you will get two further versions: Ki-45 Kai KO and Ki-45 Kai OTSU.

These two are earlier versions, easily recognizable by their shorter nose, which carries a central landing light.
All 4 plane types will be flyable in 4.12 naturally.

Update July 13th, 2012 - Part 4
Source: forum.1cpublishing.eu/...post444176

Part 4
Last but not least we look down to the surface. Here we have two new German submarines - the Type VIIB (made by 3rd party) and the Type IXB.

Further on as a new feature, the heavy Russian tanks T-28 and T-35 with their multi-turret layout will now be able to handle their turrets independently. This (multigun-)feature might be adopted to other units (bunkers, flak-turrets or similar) later. Cool

Looks very good for 4.12. I have been reading on the UP web site the demise of the IL2 mod group. Many believe that UP 3.0RC4 is dead. There has been no activity in bug fixes or mods for a long time. Since the 3.0 is based on 4.10.1 and will not be up dated per UP to take advantage ot 4.11 let alone 4.12 we have lost one of the best modded flight sims on the internet. There will still be updated to the present game, but not in the mod community. Ther is still the HSFX and others, but no more support for UP3.0. A sad day

This time we'd like to share a few features in the GUI and in flight. We'll leave it to the community to find everything and will only name one: 4.12 will have true wide screen support, which was the most popular community request at the time we started development.

The community has been asking to be able to use skins on the static aircraft for as long as I have been around. Smile
