Default Friday September 2, 2011 Patch Info (Sorry, Not Today)

We were *this close*, but a last-minute bug found with the new online map (the largest of three) means we have to recompile and rebuild everything – and that means it’s not going to finish today. The bug, for the curios, entailed giant 1500-foot grass suddenly growing all around you at altitudes below 500 feet. Quite a sight to see actually. Almost sad we found it first.

So, barring more botanic discoveries, we’ll have it out no earlier than the end of the day Monday.

Some patch info. The size is 490 MB, 300 of that being the new sounds. The speech sounds are now out in the open by the way, so you can play with them old Il-2 style.

The colors are greatly improved. See attached screenshots.
The new plane-seat selection co-op interface is there, as well as a few more surprises (not the big one though).

Sorry folks, we really tried!

Excellent! Thanks a bunch for the heads up mate!

Love the new colours and the shoreline/terrain now looks absolutely stunning! It's a great improvement over the previous version!

The only thing I miss it seems is a little more ambient light reflection from the aircraft skin. (In a typical daylight noon scenario you'd see a blue'ish reflection when looking at the aircraft parts at a very very shallow angle! That really looked the part and disappeared like 2 patches ago!)
