New ground Objects:

- More than fifty railway infrastructure facilities in summer and winter camouflage. Such as: platforms, depot buildings, water towers, semaphores, switch stands, turntables, pedestrian crossings.

Other Changes & Improvements:
- Update 4.14 is made multilingual and universal. It is equally suitable for updating previous versions of the game with different publishers, 1C and Ubisoft. Previously updates were subdivided into the Russian version of RU (contained Russian and English localization) and the international version of INT (contained English, German, French, Czech, Hungarian, and Polish localizations). Now update 4.14 contains all available localizations at once.
- Update 4.14 also brings the game files released by various publishers 1C and UbiSoft to a single version. For example, for this version the update includes files from very old updates: fb_3do08p.SFS, fb_3do09p.SFS, fb_3do10p.SFS, fb_3do20.SFS. During the installation of update 4.14, executable files and dynamic libraries located in the root folder of the game that are not related to the standardized and allowed list are removed and a complete replacement of the game executable files and dynamic library files located in the root folder of the game is done.
- For the il2fb.exe file, support for the command key "-locale" has been added. With it, you can set the game at startup displayed language localization. Valid key values are "ru", "us", "de", "fr", "cs", "pl", "hu".
Example usage: "il2fb.exe -locale de".
Without using this key when starting the game, the language localization is set from the configuration file "conf.ini", in the section "[rts]", the key is "locale".
- Support for the "-codepage" command line key has been added for the il2fb.exe file. With it, you can set the game when you start a forced code page. Valid key values are "Cp1250", "Cp1251", "Cp1257", "CJIS".

Example usage: "il2fb.exe -locale ru -codepage Cp1251".
Without using this key when starting the game, the code page necessary for language localization is detected automatically.
- Also the il2fb.exe file supports the command key "-conf". With it, you can set the game to start using a custom configuration file (conf.ini) instead of the standard one located in the root folder of the game.
- The update includes additional standardized files il2fb.exe. They are located in the "EXE" subfolder of the games root directory. The files differ in the parameters of the use of RAM by the Java gaming machine, support for console mode, and support for mods. For versions of the il2fb.exe files that support mods, the file includes a wrapper.dll file. If any non-standard executable files are detected in the root folder of the game, the game will not start. Mods are supported by the generally accepted way of reading the content of the "MODS" subfolder. The mods themselves must be compatible and adapted to version 4.14 of the patch. The only limitation when using versions of il2fb.exe files with mods support is that when connecting in a network game to a dedicated server (Dedicated Server) the host and client versions must be identical.

- The update "4.14" includes the file "classchecker.exe" to search for conflicts in the folder with the mods. This utility is a third-party development and the procedure for working with it is familiar to the creators of mods.
- The conf.ini file in the [DGen] section has added the key "UseAsuraDGen". With the value of key is 1, it becomes possible to use a third-party generator from Asura instead of the standard dynamic campaign generator. Alternative generator files must be installed in the #DGEN subfolder located in the root directory of the game. The third-party version of the generator must support the current version of the game.
- Changed the order of interaction between the client and the dedicated server (Dedicated Server) in the network game mode in order to counteract the interception of packets by cheat programs such as, for example, the well-known cheat "Radar".

- When a well-known cheat program is detected on the user's computer, the connection to the dedicated server is rejected.
- When a player is initially connected to a dedicated server, a message has been added about the current version of the dedicated server and its mode of operation for Client Run Time.
- Changed the ping indicator and connection quality in the network game mode.
- Changes in the flight model of the MBR-2 series aircraft.
- Changes in the flight model of the R-5 and SSS family aircraft.
- Changes in the flight model of the He.177A-3.
- Changes in bombloads of the MBR-2 series aircraft.
- Changes in the bomb loads of the He.177A-3. Additionally external bomb loads and the guided bombs Hs.293 were removed. (These loadouts were applied with the A-5 modification, and in addition, the cockpits for the guided weapons would be significantly altered). Changed small caliber ammunition according to historical data. This change may alter previously created missions and campaigns involving this aircraft and will need to be adjusted.

- Small changes to the exterior model of the He.177A-3. Previously created custom skins will need to be adjusted due to changes in the glazing of the nose of the fuselage.
- Fixed a bug in the way the ship torpedo type 53-38 works.
- The bombsight of the TB-3 series aircraft with an unknown and, most likely, a fictional modification has been replaced with the most common sight, the OPB-1.
- For the Ju.88A-4 aircraft, bomb loads were added with two WB81A or WB81B outboard containers (3 MG81Z Sparky machineguns in each outboard container, 200 rounds of ammunition per barrel). When selecting these loadouts, the Stuvi5B bomb sight is replaced with a Revi12 sight in the cockpit.

- Fixed the display of suspended torpedoes from the cockpit of the lower forward facing gunner in the He.111H-11 aircraft.
- Minor fixes in the cockpits of the Ju.88A4, Ju.88A4torp, Ju.88A-5 (late), Ju.88A-17 and Ju.88P-1 aircraft.
- Changed the color of tracers for ShKAS machine guns (white tracer with a light green tint).
- The distance between the beginning and the end of the luminosity of ShKAS machine gun tracers and MG81Z machine guns in containers WB81A, WB81B is adjusted.
- In the properties of outboard fuel tanks added the mass parameter of the empty tank. This will allow you to more accurately adjust the weight characteristics of overhead tanks based on historical data. The parameters of the tanks will be updated in one of the following updates.

- In the properties of external models of aircraft increased the maximum possible number of fuel tanks. This affects the correctness of the implementation of the damage model, the visualization of fuel leak points, etc. In the current version, only the He.177A-3 aircraft uses this feature.
- Changes have been made to the operation of aircraft under the control of the AI:
- bombers striking from horizontal flight are more accurately guided along the course of the “Attack” point.
- bombers striking from horizontal flight more accurately determine the time of dropping bombs.
- For aircraft under the control of the player, the available list of ballistic tables is expanded.
- bombers correctly open bomb bay doors.

- Changed the model of the atmosphere. Instead of the International Standard Atmosphere based on GOST 4401-81, an atmosphere based on GOST R 53460-2009 is used:
-Instead of the average annual parameters, parameters characteristic of the four seasons are used: spring, summer, autumn, winter.
- Instead of the averaged temperature and pressure parameters calculated for a latitude of 45 degrees, the parameters characteristic for each latitude from 80 ° Y.SH are used. up to 80 ° C.Sh in 10 ° increments.
-The height of the calculation of accurate atmospheric parameters increased from 18km to 120km. This makes it possible to more accurately convey the atmospheric features on the current day of the year on the selected map: the characteristic temperature distribution and air density over altitudes, temperature distribution curves, and the characteristics of the tropospheric pause.

- Added support for dynamic parameters of atmospheric pressure and air temperature on the map, depending on historical data at the time of the date in the mission. Baseline data are taken from the records of weather stations closest to the area maps. The following maps are now changed to reflect the atmospheric pressure by the month and the temperature by the day:

Bessarabia from 1936 to 1946.
Odessa from 1936 to 1946
Lasi from 1936 to 1946.
Black Sea from 1936 to 1946.
Crimea from 1936 to 1946.
Donbass from December 1941 to December 1943.
Gulf of Finland from 1936 to 1960.
Khalkhin-Gol from September 1938 to 1946.
Kiev from 1936 to 1946.
Kuban from 1936 to 1946.
Baltic from 1936 to 1946.
Kursk from 1936 to 1946.
Lviv from 1936 to 1946.
Manchuria from 1936 to 1946.
Battle for Moscow from June 1941 to December 1942.
Moscow from September 1941 to December 1942.
Murmansk from 1936 to 1946.
Prokhorovka from 1936 to 1946.
Smolenskfrom 1936 to 1946.
Stalingrad map from 1940 to 1945.

Let us give an example:
If you create a mission on the Stalingrad map and set the date to 07/01/1942, then the average atmospheric pressure for January 1942 will be set in the mission. according to weather stations = 741mm.rt.st. and the average daily temperature observed on January 7 was -4C. If you set another date in the mission date, then the temperature will be set to a different one, for example, on January 8 -11?, but on January 22 and 23 there were frosts down to -34?. At different dates, the atmospheric parameters will be different.

- Increase the accuracy of the movement of the Sun and Moon depending on time, day, and year. A more accurate calculation of the time of sunrise and sunset, the phases of the moon. Accounting time zone on the map. Considering the geographical latitude and longitude of the map.
- Changed the apparent size of the moon to look more realistic.
- Improved the clarity of the textures of the moon.
- Download the default date (month / year) when you open a map in the Full Mission builder.
- On the Sulechin airfield on the Berlin map, fixed a bug when taxiing aircraft to the parking lot.
- The DirectX joystick driver was rewritten: -
- Up to 8 devices are supported at the same time instead of just 4 previously.
- Axis resolution is increased to 1023 instead of the previous 250.
- The number of supported buttons on one joystick has been increased from 32 to 128. (Theoretically, the driver supports up to 8 buttons, but manufacturers do not release mice with more than 5 buttons. The remaining 3 are usually assigned to mose software).
- Introduced support for setting user polling interval for joysticks. In the conf.ini in the section [rts] the entry joyTick is responsible for this function. Valid range is from 1ms to 1000ms. The default value is 100ms.
- Increased the number of saved joystick profiles from 4 to 8.
- Changed and updated the joystick settings window. Additional tab "Information" displays information about the connected input devices and their sequence numbers.
- In the input settings tab, the button "Update devices" is entered. It allows you to connect and disconnect input devices and re-initialize them without having to restart the game.
- Improved smooth animation of aileron, elevators and rudders.
- Engine: Norm engine temperature popup message returned.
- Accelerated pre-checking and filling in the list of custom skins using 24-bit support.
- The Print Screen functionality in DirectX mode has been fixed. Screenshots are created in TGA format only regardless of the settings in the configuration file. Previously files were created, but were unreadable.
- Fixed Print Screen functionality in OpenGl mode. When creating screenshots widescreen mode is taken into account. Format of TGA and/or JPG screenshots is determined by the settings in the configuration file.
- Fixed rate of fire on two Japanese 25mm anti-aircraft guns. It was mistakenly overpriced.
- Fixed the rate of fire of the main caliber 'M30_122mmx2' and anti-aircraft gun '21Kx2 'on the monitor "Smolensk". It was mistakenly overpriced.
- Fixed the location of FAB-250 bombs in one of the loadouts on the SB 2M-103 (201 series) and SB 2M-103A (221 series) aircraft.
- Objects from the "Artillery" and "Stationary Armor" sections have added the ability to set the height of the object above ground level in the Full Mission Builder. The properties of such objects also have the ability to specify their location in the event of their destruction: "Do not change the height of an object", "Drop an object to the surface", "Hide an object under the surface".
- The mis recording format for mission tracks has been updated with new properties, so new tracks will not open correctly in previous versions of the game.
- In the Full Mission Builder the tab "Load map" display is changed. Now it contains subdivisions of the regions "Western Europe", "Eastern Europe", "Mediterranean Sea", "Pacific Ocean", "Asia", "Networks" in which the corresponding maps are located.
- On the "Black Sea" map, the railway tracks to Krasnodar have been corrected, the mini-map has been updated.
- On the map "Kiev" the mini-map has been updated.
- On the maps "Ardennes", "Balaton", "Berlin", "Black Sea", "Gulf of Finland", "Kiev", "Crimea", "Kuban", "Kursk", "Lviv", "Moscow", " Normandy "," Prokhorovka "," Smolensk "," Stalingrad "- static objects of railway equipment have been removed.

- Corrections in the animation of the rudder, elevator, aileron and flap on the IL10 plane.
- Corrections of tricolor skins for I-16 aircraft types 24, 28, 29.
- For airplanes that do not have working fuel gauges in the cockpits, information on the fuel level is available using the "TAB" key. For example, on the TB-3 fuel gauges were located in the flight engineers cabin (which was not implemented in the game). In the event of the death of the flight engineer, information about the fuel supply will not be available.
- Fixed the sounds of the engines of the Fw.189 and Fi.156 aircraft.
- The sound of the U-2 type aircraft engine is muted.
- On the F4F-3 plane, the speed indicator was fixed, now it shows speed in mph instead of the previous knots.
- On the CR-42 aircraft, the accuracy of the readings of the ammunition indicators has been improved.
- Various fixes in the list of regiments and their locations.

4.14 will content two campaigns & several misions for MBR-2

I don't see the England/Channel/France Map.

And by default date, do you mean the period when it was a battle field, we'll use Pearl, it will load up at Dec 7th 1941, and 7:30AM.

Weather thing sounds interesting, are there more "cloud type" variations to add a visual to that feature.

I don't see 50cal's look exactly like gun cam footage, a hose of fire, so I guess that's not happening.

Right on, I'll come back in two weeks, and you speak well for DT Sita.

"need huge numbers of ground objects"

I guess, just the rail way system is a life times work.

Rgr, we'll have to wait for hinkels being shot down over the cliffs of Dover.

"airfield staff... historical buildings"

Speaking of, I was thinking it would be great if the static men we have would come to life and run like the guys from the trucks when you are straffing.

You could have a group of guys working on a plane, and all of them scatter when your flight comes in guns blazzing, with hose like tracers as seen in the gun camera footage, from your 50cal's.

Any crates going to be added as objects, two things about the ports is wrong, they are empty, nothing on the docks, the largeCover object can only be used so many times, and there are no small ships.

And a exploding object, some thing you can put in a building or stationary ship, and it goes off like a 5000lb or so bomb if hit with gun fire. A surprise in the mission. I have been using the Ammunition rail car, but so far have not seen a explosion.

Cheers!! Four Continents on the AleXserver last Thursday, only one's missing were Australia, and Africa.

We'll need a proper Hurricane I or Spitfire I for that first... Spitfire would need a new model, but for Hurricane, only a new FM to represent the stronger engine with 12lb boost.
