This news in from the 1c forum, looks good to me.
Friday Update, February 17, 2012
Hello everyone,
First of all, lets talk about the upcoming patch.
We havent talked about our flight model for some time. We havent been idle
however. Not only are we fine-tuning plane performance, were making some
very deep changes to the underlying core of our physics code.
We are completely rewriting collision and landing gear, while also making other
elements of the flight model more complete and precise. Control surface
behavior and reaction has been significantly improved. Refined transverse
velocity calculations in relation to aircraft performance. Made it possible to
calculate different transverse velocity at different points along the wing.
Improved pylon and loadout FM calculations. Added many new features to allow
FM calculation needed in future sequels. Many of these changes have also
entailed completely rewriting existing code.
And this is by no means a complete list!
Graphics-wise, were dealing with a last-minute issue as we speak. We rather
unexpectedly found a problem with our aircraft decals, i.e. the code that places
crosses and roundels and chevrons etc on top of the aircraft paintscheme. The
code is being rewritten, the work should be finished in about 2 days. Once its
done we can take much more accurate benchmarks. Well post then when we
have them.
And now lets talk about new stuff.
Were continuing to introduce you to aircraft from our upcoming sequel. This is
once again the Ju-88A-4 shown last week; this time its wearing summer camo
and is flying in front of a WIP, oh dear God so very WIP, fall landscape.
Finally, were showing the second part of our three-part video preview of the
new ground features in our simulation.
Watch it here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZC29KL_wSBo
Please do keep in mind that this is still work in progress, and many of the
components shown are not yet final. If you look closely, you may even notice
some improvements between last weeks video and this one.
Most importantly, please keep in mind that this is a preview, the feature is
actively being worked on, and at this time we do not know ourselves when and in
which shape it will make it into the game.
Tune in next week for the final part of the preview. It will focus on the vehicle
type briefly shown at the end of this video.
See you next Friday!

I really hope that the new graphics scale properly with SLI, my setup benches and performs the same as a 580 in any other game or benchmark, just not the one I really want it too! Heres hoping.

Wow, the tires of the vehicles actually grip the terrain and caused the car to flip over.

I hope it's reflected the same with the aircraft's landing gear.

Blacksix did say that they are remoddling the landing gear so my guess would be yes. Maybe we'll even get the groundloops that some people have been eagerly awaiting since day one. exitstageleft

No, haven't you heard the joke where the code that attaches aircraft decals walks into a bar........

Coming in next weeks 'Sim installment', the revolutionary IL2-Sturmovik....'CRY HAVOC....THE DOGS OF WAR'!!!






Cutting edge canine combat simulation from our newly developed 'Kanine-Dynamix' engine allows you to control packs of Soviet Suicide bomb dogs, minesweepers, attack-sentry and detection roles and more...with complex pack behaviour AI!!!! The much feared Doberman Pinscher MkIV free with every purchase!!!!


Thrill to unsurpassed and unparalleled levels of DOG COMBAT REALISM and unit micro management....in your favourite Flight Sim (flight sim?.....it is a flight sim, right?) Blah blah effin blah.

FFS, wow....Jeeps. Tanks. Just fix the fecking performance data for what we have in CloD, correct ceilings and systems errors etc amongst a truckload of other things, release the SDK and let the modders do the rest. I'm not actually opposed to it, some may like it and that's great.....but I couldn't give a monkeys myself. I could play ARMA or something or *insert tank sim here* if I wanted all this bollocks.

Any flight sim fans here, or am I in the wrong forum?

Bah.

(hahaha) What a carry on.

On the plus side: FM and gfx fixes (hopfully)

So it was that the war in the air began. Men rode upon the whirlwind that night and slew and fell like archangels. The sky rained heroes upon the astonished earth. Surely the last fights of mankind were the best. What was the heavy pounding of your Homeric swordsmen, what was the creaking charge of chariots, besides this swift rush, this crash, this giddy triumph, this headlong sweep to death?

Ever since the Banjo Tube it's been pretty obvious they dont really care what the customers say/wish.
