Hello everyone,

It looks like Daidalos Team has started issuing dev updates for 4.13. Featured in the first update is the sexy He177A-3 bomber...

You gotta love these guys. After like 12 years they keep updating the sim. I don't remember how much I paid for it, but man, what a freaking steal!

The model was made by an extern modeler - a friend of one of our team members - on request of another team member, who is also involved in HSFX development. So this was some shared work.
The model, programming and FM where ready shortly after 4.12 release. HSFX 7 is on base of 4.12 but therefor got the chance to include the 'Greif'.
Its the very same model and plane.

A Salute to Team Daidalos! This is amazing that after all this time they are still making excellent improvements to Il-2.

I wish there was a way to implement real time cockpit shadows in the game. That is the only thing missing to bring it at par with the current gen flight sims.

I am hoping that eventually Diadalos will provide Jets up to the early supersonic age like DBW does.

I've been out of the IL-2 loop for a loooong time (basically since the code got cracked and all the different mods started being created)... anyway, that Grief looks gorgeous! Is it normal for these newer models to have such high poly counts? The nacelles are round, the astrolab (I think) porthole in the top of the fuselage is round, the wing tips, etc... all round. Not kinda round, not round-ish in an offset octagonal way, but actually indistinguishable from round!


looks very modernishy-phoney-windows eighty-tabletty like

Many aircraft had their models tweaked. See "Fix engines cowlings and props"

Well, actually, it's not so round. You can see this if you look closely. Just some clever modeling approach, like use slightly more polygons at more curved parts and less polygons at less curved areas. Overal polycount on He-177 is around 10K at LOD-0, which is about as much, as 3 fighter aircraft models from the very first (circa 2001) game release. Taking in account, that since then PC calculating power grew like 20 times, this is really won't have any impact on framerates.

PS it's not an astrodome, it's control station for remote controlled turret.

These cockpits are great. However, have there any talks on fixing some of the old cockpits, especially for some of the well-known planes. Take F4F for instance. When you get bullet holes on your canopy and you open your cockpit, the bullet holes look as if were drilled on your computer screen, instead of the window glass of the canopy. Especially if you look back to your 5 and 7 o'clock. It looks pretty awkward. I know like other American planes, this will probably not get too much attention any way.

agreed with the many different modelers and texture artists, I believe all the cockpit damage should follow a some sort of content guide.

bulletholes, cracked revis, oil splash should be the same for all aircraft. Not over site, oil should blind 100% front visability or be 20% opacity

completely obscured or not, same with the tinted glass. None or 5% on all ac

I know its one persons point of realism but in a online game should be even glass tint oilsplash how easy a revi breaks.

The thing that really bugs me is all the newer flightsim cockpits, dcs, new il2 sturmo, clod and addon clod have the revi reflection move off the site completely never seen that happen on a real gunsite from hundreds of ac, they have some movement when leaning left or right but always stay on the glass


^^

btw none of this has to do with the great work deds do smile They fix things

Looking forward to 4.13 any word on the release?
