Default Forum 1C interview: if you could ask 3 questions

Just 3, no cheating!
Maybe Anton will be able to answer these now or in the near future.
Try to keep it as short and sweet as possible so maybe we can learn more about the best game of 2009.


1)Will multiplayer feature an attack/defend gametype featuring bombing/escort?

2)Will the host in multiplayer be able to set up the room as "cockpit only"?

3)Will we be able to fly full length co-op missions? As in taking off from the base to the objective and back again in a co-op game.

Who's next?


EDIT:
Compiled list of forum interview questions as of 4/28/09.


Gameplay related:
Quote:
***Will we deal with limited fuel in single player and multiplayer?


***Is there a P-38 to fly?


***How is navigation handled? On screen indicators, map/HUD or written mission directions etc. How do we find where we're going in the game?


***Will be able to add different markings to planes to show we are aces or newbies, and/or create our own skins in game?


***Is there going to be wash from the plane getting close to the water or land?


***Confirm July release? Demo?
***(other) Release date?


***Average single player completion time?


***What is Antons personal favourite campaign/mission?


***If BoP is successful, there will be another version of Il-2 in next gen who close to the simulation on a PC?


***Parachutes?


***Blood on canopy when shot? If there is, will it also effect the controls of the plane because of the pilot's injury?


***Will the game have a carrier? Like a British one in the Battle of Britain?


***I was curious about the reward system for ranking up in multilayer. How does the game reward you for doing well?


***Can we zoom in on the pipper?


***Can you see replays? If so, can we save them?


***1 map = 1 theatres of war? (it is possible to fly above London?)


***Is it possible to land everywhere with our plane where there are land?


***Will germans speak german and russians speak russian in the game? (original voice)


***Will IL2 support the AC6 flightstick?


***I heard you can black out if you pull to mutch g-s how does this work(Can you recover from this or is is lights out?


***Will we be seeing IL2 at E3?


***What planes are included for the Battle of Britain period, flyable and non flyable?


***What will the AI be like?


***Also, are the maps to scale-say, are they correctly modeled?


***Is the campaign historically accurate; say can you get covoy patrol mission where nothing may turn up? Or others when you get more trade than expected?


***Will BOP for ps3 use the youtube upload feature like Tom Clancy's Hawx?


***Can we make custom missions for multiplayer like in the original IL2.
ANSWERED:
Anton: ...no, there won't be public editor for BoP. Consoles adds certain limits, and making console-proof editor is hard work.

---Is this still the case?


***Will there be any kind of DLC in the future to make it possible?


***Will there be any sort of practice/free flight feature that lets you take off in a plane and just fly around for fun and then land again? Where you can just cruise around the maps, checking stuff out, practicing aerobatic moves etc.

Multiplayer specific:

Quote:
***Will multiplayer feature an attack/defend gametype featuring bombing/escort?


***Will the host in multiplayer be able to set up the room as "cockpit only"?


***Will we be able to fly full length co-op missions? As in taking off from the base to the objective and back again in a co-op game.


***Can we confirm that there is co-op and is it the campaign or other? How many people can be involved?


***Will we be able to form squadrons? (clan support)


***Will three or four people be able to occupy one plane so there can be a pilot and gunners?


***In multiplayer mode, it will there be a mode where each team will be to destroy the enemy's airport by bombardment?


***There will be a multiplayer mode in split screen?


***Can you make a private room...multiplayer and for free flight (for say formation flying)

I don't think Anton could answer our questions. That would spoil the surprise. When the game is released in France, I buy it.

Guys, GDC for me is not about IL-2.
I am doing business there.

Yeah, GDC (Game Developers Conference) is a mostly buisness type deal. Not a place where you can watch everyone play the public demo etc.

And yes, lets keep these threads on topic so we dont have to keep making new ones, unlike my "Questions about game" one.

My questions:

1) Parachutes?

2) Blood on canopy when shot? If there is, will it also effect the controls of the plane because of the pilot's injury?

3) Wil the game have a carrier? Like a British one in the Battle of Britain?

1) I was curious about the reward system for ranking up in multilayer. How does the game reward you for doing well?
