New reply to Developer Diary

Hello everybody, another week has passed and we have interesting IL-2 news for you once again. First of all, our programmers started the work on the next new gameplay mode: Cooperative. In the start, this mode will include new multiplayer server type, where a player will have to choose an aircraft in a scenario mission. The mission will start once enough players have joined and confirmed they are ready. The aircraft not claimed by human players will be controlled by AI, so the mission will proceed as it was designed even if the server isn’t full. The mission scenario could be nearly anything you could think of – scripting allows a mission designer to create almost any combat situation. Moreover, the multiplayer branching campaigns will be possible,...

Beaufighter Mk. 1F Test

ATAG_Lewis took the Beaufighter out for a test flight during beta v4.49 as Team Fusion Simulations work through correcting the final bugs before releasing v4.5 on Steam. This video shows nearly 50-minutes of footage as he takes the beast into the air of IL2 Cliffs of Dover. Couple of points to note. This is beta testing and features are being added and removed (bugs that is) so this video while representative of beta testing is not guaranteed to show everything that will be available on final release. Next, beta testing of the enamy Ai gunners. TFS are currently running varios server missions to test and change the effectiveness of the enemy Ai at different difficulty settings from Rookie to Ace.

Top 10 Aerial Dogfights in Movie History

Aerial combat is a special category of battle and when ace pilots face off on film the effect can be full-throttle pulse-pounding. As long as there have been planes in war, there have been directors trying to capture that feeling. Here’s our Top 10 Aerial Dogfights of All Time!   #10: Top Gun (1986) Director: Tony Scott We know it’s unorthodox to up this quintessential battle at the lowest slot on the list, but trust us, it’ll whet your appetite for what’s to come. #9: Wings (1927) Director: William A Weldon Wings pretty much invented the filming techniques that have stayed with aerial dogfight filmmaking for the next nine decades. Except that stuff with green screens. #8: The Red Baron (2008) Director: Nikolai Müllerschön We...
