I don't suppose anyone at DT would be able to hazard a guess about release dates... Or what new planes or cockpits will be going into 4.12...

Thanks for the guide DT.

As a DGen campaign builder I like to know what this means - "Added DGEN mission date workaround"

Could you give a more detailed explanation?

Since 4.10 it is possible to set the date of the mission in the mission file. This is used to enable some loadouts based on the date they were introduced (for example 20mm cannon on Bf 109 F-2). Since DGEN doesn't generate this on it's own, we devised a little workaround for this problem. Basically it parses the mission name generated by DGEN to get the date (DGEN format for name is ymmdd).

All other features depending on date of the mission (skin selection, etc.) should work too with DGEN generated missions.

That is probably the most important work DT has done for Il2. Offline flying carriers and missions will now play out completely different and much more realistic. Finally we have orders for flight to drop bombs on command and force your flight to leave bombs on when only a single enemy appears. Amazing stuff from DT!!!

Wow. I can't wait.


Improved radiator & overheat modeling
4.11 introduces a more detailed and more accurate radiator model. It is different from the
previous model in many ways, the main differences being:
• radiator settings now have an impact on both water/cylinder and oil temperature
• outside temperature now has an impact on oil temperatures
• engine rpm has a bigger impact
• impact of WEP is dependent on extra power generated
• mixture setting has an impact
• the density of the air has an impact
• aircraft speed has a bigger impact
• there is no longer a fixed period after which damage occurs in case of overheat
• introducing a random chance for damage depending on how strongly the engine
overheats
• type of damage is depending on if it is water/cylinder or oil overheating
You will generally find that the planes overheat a lot more, in particular if you are not on a cold
map in fast level flight. As a guideline, on hotter maps you can expect fighters to be able to
6 / 21
sustain about 70% power at 70% pitch without overheating radiators closed, for bombers it is
somewhat more. The values in many cases are reasonably close to real life maximum
continuous settings (please don't go by cockpit gauges, they aren't always accurate).
If you start a low speed full power dogfight with a closed radiator, you can expect the engine
to overheat rapidly and to get damaged quickly. War emergency power settings should
therefore only be used in an emergency, otherwise your plane might get destroyed without
your enemy even firing a shot.
To keep engine temperatures low, remember:
• use low rpm (reduce pitch), in particular oil temperature are sensitive towards rpm
• use low throttle settings (and avoid WEP)
• open the radiator
• fly faster (don't climb at too low speeds)
• use an as rich mixture as possible

Today? Tomorrow? Hurry up pls :)

Hi,

List of changes is impressive. Almost like new sim :D. Thanks alot for all the things you've done.

Also I have a question, are there any plans for FOV fix for wide-screen users (fully adjustable FOV would be marvellous). All the new monitors build in at least last 4 years are 16:9 or 16:10 ratio, it would be nice if IL2 would reflect typical todays display setup.

Thanks alot once again.

This s FANTASTIC news. Personally I think that the addition of 6DoF even if it is more restricted is a very wise move. I would love to see at least one of Monguse's late war P-51s (D-25 or D-30) added to the stock roster of AC. Great stuff!! I cant wait to get this patch.

12-25-2011, 05:38 PM
I was so used to Il-2 being a 2DoF game that I spent my last seven-eight years using an old TrackIR 1 without any of that modernist Vector-Expansion (get of my lawn!). Until CloD came out and I needed a new Computer - and decided to add TIR 5 to the mix. And now I even get 6DoF in IL-2:1946 as added surprise -wonderful!

Glancing at the list in the guide I see why you refrained from publishing the patch too early and went for the mega-patch at holiday season (again). I'm not mad, I'm happy.

I just hope the dummie that I am will be ok and get accustomed soon with all the new realism settings.

Merry Christmas!

12-25-2011, 07:42 PM
Personally I think that the addition of 6DoF even if it is more restricted is a very wise move.

Body movements sideways, forward/backward & up/down is somewhat restricted, but the old head (camera) rotation is tweaked such way that it simulates human neck. This gives more camera movement and more natural feel.

This video should explain it better.

The rounded spinner on Italian G.50s is a feature of 4.10... I was one of a few people who asked to have it added (thanks DT). I'm not sure if it is selected if you choose Italy as the plane's owner or if it is linked by skin checksum like the gunsights on the D.XXI. Perhaps DT can elaborate?

Woah! Very impressive list of AI changes. Can't wait to try this ;-)

"AI planes will also try to hide in clouds in certain conditions" and "AI flights doesn't go into attack as soon as they spot the enemy anymore. Depending on the situation AI might try to avoid fight or try to improve their position before commencing the attack."

Yes...

Please also talk to 1C and CoD and its AI. We're going to need these for CoD as well...;-)

I'm sorry, but attitudes like that just kill me.

Like a bitter relative that receives gifts on Christmas that has to look past all the goodness of those gifts just to find what's wrong with them, then tells other about it.

The default sounds aren't as bad as many here purport. Could they be improved? Certainly. A half-decent sound card with good software, and good headphones - or at least a 2.1 speaker system - goes a long way in making the default sounds quite good in most cases, though.

Be thankful for what we got, which, in the case of IL-2 and other similarly in-depth games and sims, is an awful lot.

TY Team Daidalos!

Does that mean that even the later spit models will eventually overheat? Sounds almost too good to be true.Those birds have always had the most physics-defying overheat model so far.

Looking forward to the AI changes, too. The dumb AI have prevented me from ever flying an offline campaign.

Is there a chance you guys might introduce following changes in 4.13?

1) Pilot fatigue as a realism option. IL2 models stick forces, so calculating the amount of physical work a pilot puts into his flying should be feasible. Also high-g conditions require contraction of all muscles in pilot's legs, buttocks and abdomen, which should further drain his energy stores.

2) Realistic behaviour of fletner trim tabs, especially in combination with ffb sticks. Those of you who own Condor (THE soaring sim) or are RL pilots know what i mean.

3) Strengthen the arrestor cables on all carriers. They should stop the planes MUCH faster. There's lots of real ww2 footage showing arestor cable behaviour.

S!

regarding 1, that would be really hard to simulate, since it al ldepends a lot on the phisical condition of the pilot, and how one reacts to huigh g maneuvers, and flying overall. im agaisnt it.

aobut 2, are you telling me that condor actually has a realsitic trim behaviour? meaning that if im flying and i trim the plane the joysitck will compasate for the force accordingly?? WOW, i need to try that. thank you

Look, i've got a really good sound system, top end creative card, really nice 5.1 sound system, and yes it does make the default sounds better, and internally they are just about bearable, externally they are however awful, and if you make vids like i do sometimes, having only 6 different external sounds for all the planes is pretty 1999.

Don't misunderstand me, i am over the moon by what we're getting, but it is a fact that the sounds suck.

However, since on balance it is very unlikely that a mod activator won't appear for 4.11 at some point its moot, since i'll be able to mod the sounds anyway, and i think that TD have concentrated on more important things anyway.

As a cancer researcher I know quite a bit about systems biology and physiology and in fact a really simple model would offer amazingly realistic pilot fatigue behaviour. With THAT modeled IL2FB would kick the s**t out of CoD even more than it already does.

Regarding trim: the condor sim is on the mark, giving me exactly what i experience in the real cockpit.

MD_Titus
12-27-2011, 04:25 PM
Sounds still suck.

i fly modded, but i use default sounds, because no matter how good a canned recording is... it's still a canned recording.

the stock dynamic sound is, imo, a far better experience for actually playing the game rather than using it as a fly-by simulator.

cheers TD, looking forward to release.

tank you for important airplane CANT 506 this is cant 506 cokpit in italian museum

You need a LOT more than that to build a flyable aircraft in the game. Better to have pictures of the cockpit and all crew stations from all angles. Even better, provide blueprints and manuals - maintenance manuals, crew manuals and pilot manuals - for the plane.

If the plane carried equipment which is important in the game - like bomb sights - or unusual weapons - provide lots of pictures, blueprints and manuals for those things as well.


italian navy class littorio


I believe that this is being worked on as a mod/3rd party project.

italian bunker

I don't mean to be rude, but how did Italian bunkers/fortifications differ from those of other nations? If there was a significant difference, then perhaps they should be modeled. Otherwise, why bother?


varius italian sea plane imam ro43/44 or italian bomber savoia marchetti or br20 ecc.ec. missing ITALIAN FIGHTER class V ...reggiane 2005 missing fiat g55 ecc.ec.

TD and 3rd party modelers are filling in the gaps as fast as they can. Some of the planes you want are available as mods of various quality, some good some horrible.

Unless you can do professional level 3d modeling in 3ds Max or do java coding, the most useful thing you can do is provide as much information as possible about specific vehicles (ships, planes, tanks) you'd like to see in the game. The more technical and detailed the information, the better.

12-28-2011, 01:45 AM
As a cancer researcher I know quite a bit about systems biology and physiology and in fact a really simple model would offer amazingly realistic pilot fatigue behaviour.

I'm not nearly so well-trained, but I've studied a lot about human physiology under stress and I agree that it would be reasonably easy to add factors such as fatigue and hypoxia to the game.

A very simple method of modeling fatigue loss would be a simple "Fatigue Points" score. Under stress, such as combat or high-g maneuvers, the pilot would lose points at a set rate. Likewise, he'd recover "Fatigue Points" at some other rate when he's not exercising hard or fighting for his life - basically, it's the human equivalent of engine heating and cooling.

If Fatigue Points go below a certain level, he can't do certain things, such as hold high G turns.

More technically, as the human body is stressed and lactic acid builds up in the muscles, muscle strength goes down. It's not exactly a exponential curve, but it comes pretty close.

Just compare typical leg press strength against forces exerted on the rudder pedal during a turn of X g's and divide by the exponential function to determine if the pilot can hold a turn of X g's. Pretty simple stuff to add to the sim; not much more complex than the "hit locations" and bleeding injuries which TD introduced with the 4.10 patch.

Likewise, it would be really easy to measure progressive hypoxia above 10k feet/3 km, or sudden hypoxia which occurs above 20k feet/12 km using simple functions. These factors have been extremely well studied.

Isn't it already there (with regards to the AI "giving up" and the player blacking out more easily")?

Of course, improving the modelling would be wonderful (although taking into account the strain on the airframe created by rolling while pulling g's would be high priority).

my opinion on this feature is pretty much the some off the one we got on Clod, regarding only having 2 hands.

for those who dont know COD has this feature were you can only do 2 things at the same time, as if you only had 2 hands. so , in a 109 its impossible to fly the plane (one hand for the stick) control throttle ( one hand at throttle) and trim the plane( third hand on trim).

The problem? its too counter intuitive. i used to have a g940, throttle on the big one and elevator trim on the small axis. so dispite the fact that i knew the rules of the game, in those heat moments in the middle of a dogfight where i did a trim set up and a power set up at the same time, suddenly my plane stopped working as i had tought it would, and htis was death.

My point, its hard to know what can or you cant do in every plane, especially in il2 1946 where you have a LOT of planes.

Stress is hard to measure. in my first days of flying this game i shaked my ass off ( literelly) when i had an enemy at my six. on my glory days, i was a cold blood killer, and used to watch tv while slaughtering my squadmates on internal campaign.

its ahrd to account for it. how do i know if im "stressed" in game? and why am i stressed? why am i tired? why do i know im tired?

simulation flying its tiresome on its own. after 5 mins of dogfight you are more prone to mistakes, you are more nervous, adrenaline is pumping, you have no fear of death, but in a campaign not playing for 1 hour is punishment enough.

about tired? i once flew a 3 hour patrol. for 3 hours i saw nothing. i was getting tired, the result was obvius. i wasnt checking my six, i was flying in a shamefull manner, and when i got into a dogfight i was so anxiusto kill that guy, i never toguht the stuff i usually think ( is he alone? whats is plane? cna i win? etc )... no i was so tired that i jumped right on him, lost lots of energy, did turn and burn with a plane with superior abilities.... but the other pilot was tired too, and i got the best of him.

other short story. regarding fatigue on simualtion vs real life. waths your patience to pick up a plane and fly around with it? and how aobut in real life? i did 1 hour flights in real life. obviosly we didnt sjhoot anithing down. we did some loopings barrel rolls and a split S from time to time. but flying virtully im bored in 10 mins of no action, speacilly if i know that there isnt going to be one. real life flying is far less tiresome.

So. my thougths about this is simple. how do you measure something like fatigue and stress without becoming counter intuitive?

I for one want this option for IL2 too, it may be counter intuitive as you say, but intuitivness is not what i am looking for in a WW2 sim. Using too many axis in the same time is just not realistic at all when it comes to WW2 air combat anyway: it is not a F1 racing sim, but a WW2 sim. I am all for such an option in IL2, along with pilot fatigue as described by Pursuivant.

Of course all this should come as difficulty options on the realism board, so that people that still want to play the old way can have their fun too :)

BTW guns jamming would be so nice too!

I'm not nearly so well-trained, but I've studied a lot about human physiology under stress and I agree that it would be reasonably easy to add factors such as fatigue and hypoxia to the game.

A very simple method of modeling fatigue loss would be a simple "Fatigue Points" score. Under stress, such as combat or high-g maneuvers, the pilot would lose points at a set rate. Likewise, he'd recover "Fatigue Points" at some other rate when he's not exercising hard or fighting for his life - basically, it's the human equivalent of engine heating and cooling.

If Fatigue Points go below a certain level, he can't do certain things, such as hold high G turns.

More technically, as the human body is stressed and lactic acid builds up in the muscles, muscle strength goes down. It's not exactly a exponential curve, but it comes pretty close.

Just compare typical leg press strength against forces exerted on the rudder pedal during a turn of X g's and divide by the exponential function to determine if the pilot can hold a turn of X g's. Pretty simple stuff to add to the sim; not much more complex than the "hit locations" and bleeding injuries which TD introduced with the 4.10 patch.

Likewise, it would be really easy to measure progressive hypoxia above 10k feet/3 km, or sudden hypoxia which occurs above 20k feet/12 km using simple functions. These factors have been extremely well studied.

That would indeed rock!

I remember being burned by Condor with this feature. In Condor, when you extend the landing gear, you can see the pilot figure take his right hand off the stick (leaving his left hand on his lap), and operate the undercarriage lever. In this time your joystick is inactive. Not exactly what you want when you're in a very steep final turn! When I flew real retractable-undercarriage gliders I was told to keep my right hand on the stick and use my left hand to operate the undercarriage. Usually it's operated by a lever on the right side of the cockpit which directly extends the single retractable wheel.

Is there a chance you guys might introduce following changes in 4.13?

1) Pilot fatigue as a realism option. IL2 models stick forces, so calculating the amount of physical work a pilot puts into his flying should be feasible. Also high-g conditions require contraction of all muscles in pilot's legs, buttocks and abdomen, which should further drain his energy stores.

We are split on this matter, I tried simple fatigue model and I liked it but some DT members expressed some doubts about fatigue in game so this is something worth discussion which would include whole community, especially experienced RL pilots. ( They are split on this too as far as I know :-P)

Luno13
12-29-2011, 09:38 PM
I support the idea, but it really depends on how you fly the game. I like long patrols and I've flown multiple-hour sorties without time compression. Mentally, one is tired enough after that. One ends up making poor decisions and maneuvers lazily.

Fatigue modeling would really only affect those used to quick TnB action in sorties lasting under ten minutes. Furthermore, everyone is different, and applying the same fatigue model to every pilot might cause an uproar among those who believe they're stronger :cool: Physical fatigue relates to mental fatigue, and flying will tire you both ways, but it's not always the case in a computer game. Putting an alert mind (player) into a fatigued body (sim pilot) will probably just induce frustration.

But if it's an option, why not?

A hypoxia model would be cool, but it would require modeling of some O2 systems. Pilots had to check their masks for ice buildup and could squeeze the hoses to test if oxygen was flowing. In Il-2, none of the O2 guages are even functional, just static eye-candy. O2 systems would also need a DM, and this might be even more complicated in pressurized aircraft (the entire cockpit skin would need hit-points, I imagine).

In terms of latent stresses on pilots and aircraft, it's my opinion that it would be more important to see some effects of accumulated damage to airframes, engines, and weapons as well as random failures. With Dgen under revision, it would be great to see something like historical dates and theatres affecting probability of failure as well as how the plane is handled from mission to mission (ie G-force stress on airframe accumulates throughout a career). It won't be popular to everyone, but again, it could become an option.

One member posted a while ago, either here or in the Clod forum, that because aircraft performance could vary depending on manufacturing conditions, that aspects of performance such as top speed, G limit, maneuverability, etc should be randomly assigned to within about a 5% margin of accepted performance figures. One mission you could be flying a top-shape hot-rod, and the next you could be assigned to the squadron beater, and not really know how the plane will behave until you fly it. It could make things interesting and possibly change the scope of "this plane should always be better than the other" discussions.

So, why not just have an option in the difficulty settings menu which allows you to turn pilot fatigue off?

Of course, I can see the skeptics point. A simple model for fatigue might not be realistic, since it doesn't take factors such as strength, physical conditioning, g-force on the body, and stress into account.

Couldn't agree more! AI's performance should also be limited by the blacking-out factor. It would finally put an end to these unrealistically violent, very high G maneuvers that AI is now capable of.

That might have been me, although I'm sure I'm not the only person to have thought of it.

Being able to downgrade a plane's performance by up to ~20% or uprate it by ~5-10% would shut up most of the "chart wars" and would eliminate many mods which purport to "fix" a particular plane's FM.

More practically, it would model factors such as manufacturing quality, wear and tear, and higher octane fuel.

a 20% downgrade is absolutly abusive. that would be flying a p51 without a tail section. thats loosing 120 km/h on top speed

i think this should be a difficulty option, and should be editable by mission creator. soemthing like a "plane quality" bar in the main base. if you put it 100% the players who spawn in that base get 100% performing planes. if the missio nmaker lowers that option, some planes start to get mechanical problems, and loosing sped, turn rate and such. evnetually at 0%, there should be a 100% chance you got a bad plane ( 10% speed loss at maximum) and a 50% of mechanical / weapons failure in a 45 min flight.

It seems from from this that you don't have a proper view of what FM "modding" is about

An upgrade/downgrade does not make an FM more convicing regarding specific behavioural properties of plane in flight.

Sometimes it is really just about correcting obvious typos...

What about mistakes like a plane using the wrong engines? upgrade or down grade all you want, it is still a mistake.

Take a dive bomber whose dive brakes do not have any effect (just eyecandy) because a typo in the FM? downgrade/upgrade all you want, it won't fix the problem.

What about 2 variants of P-39 in which one has fuel tanks removed to get it ligther, but in game has the weigth & fuel reduction inverted (the ligther variant is actually heavier than the other one)

But sometmes it is about emphazising certain properties over others (say acceleration vs top speed), ie about subjective criteria on what is more important to capture the essence of an aircraft personality.

It is not about "upgrading" and "downgrading"... FMs are not THAT simple. A plane's behaviour is not a linear thing and requires making hard choices.

This is taken as granted, and it's not what we're talking about.

Sometimes performance figures vary across a wide variety of testing circumstances, and each plane can behave slightly differently. It's impossible to make a sim that is 100% correct in terms of top speed, break-up speed, g-limits, ability to absorb damage, etc. So why not add a bit of variability so that "X is actually 5kph faster than Y and thus is intentionally porked" discussions are a thing of the past. Taking into account the hurdles of wartime production and logistics could make a campaign really interesting.

Maybe, but Pursuivant was suggesting that such updrade/downgrade option would eliminate the need for most FM modding.

Just pointing out that this is not really true.

Pursuivant
01-01-2012, 08:00 AM
Maori makes a good point that there's more to FM than just improving or degrading performance across the board. The ability to alter FM within certain parameters wouldn't just be top speed, but also things like stall speed, loaded weight, G-stress, turn radius, engine overheat time and a host of other factors.

When I proposed the -20%/+10% figure, I pulled it out of thin air; actual changes to parameters would have to be left up to those who know a lot more about aerodynamics and aviation history.

The idea is that serious reductions to performance would would represent a really beat up plane and/or a plane flying with really poor fuel. They should rightly be very rare. They'd represent things like the AVG's P-40/Hawk 81s towards the end of their service life, the F4Fs of the "Cactus Air Force" after a few months of hard use on Guadacanal, or some of the really poorly built Soviet, Japanese or Luftwaffe airframes.

Slight bonuses over nominal performance would represent factory fresh planes with souped up engines, extra weight removed, fancy wax jobs and the sort of stuff you get on racing planes, not combat aircraft. Souped up combat aircraft did appear occasionally, especially for aces, high ranking officers, factory test planes and/or propaganda purposes.

Pe-2-BGun is still just the periscope type - there were only minor changes, I bet.

IL-4 bombadier station is not finished, but we decided to continue it a bit to a degree, that is acceptable as a temporarly solution, so that you can actually 'sit in' it. It will be fully completed in next patch. Generally we wouldn't release a cockpit in that state, but in the sad case of 'Vert' we make an exception of course.

DT, do you have the conf.ini code to add the recording indicator? I don't think it's listed in the guide (I glanced over it just now).

I've made a fresh installation on my new PC after Megaupload's death and I don't have the guide. All I want is to have the new conf.ini lines (screens and smart throttle). Can someone post it please?

I've attached the guide I have, hopefully it's the one you need.


These parameter listed in the guide could be what you're looking for:

[game]
ScreenshotType=0
(0 = screenshots are saved as TGA, 1 = screenshots are saved as JPG, 2 = screenshots are saved as TGA and JPG)

jpgQuality=1.0 (quality of JPG screenshot. Range 0.0 to 1.0)

[rts]
UseSmartAxis=0 (value 1 enables smart axis)

I don't have these lines into my conf.ini! Is it ok to introduce them manually?

Yes. Make sure you don't have duplicate sections. I.E. if you already have a [game] section, don't add another one. Put the lines for that section under the lines in the existing one.

If a section doesn't already exist, put it at the bottom of the file underneath the other sections.
