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.

Team Fusion v5 Progress

Team Fusion v5 Progress

So to start with, apologies for the lack of big updates. Followers of our Facebook page have seen a few new images over the past few weeks but I appreciate that not everyone is into the FB corporate beast so I’ll post a selection of images here too. Now in previous news I have mentioned a significant area of work we have been involved in and hopefully that is coming to an end and I look forward to being able to show considerably more interesting updates than this one will be. I am hoping the next update I give will be one of great interest to the CloD community and offer a roadmap to TF v6.00 and onwards. So as I said, this is just a small ‘nibble’ showing some of the WiP and I hope in the next one (yes I hear a sigh of frustration from...
