Patch 2.011

Author: Administrator Date: 04.08.17 System:

1. Supermarine Spitfire Mk.VB Collector Plane is added to the project and all Battle of Kuban owners can fly it now;
2. The new historical campaign Blazing Steppe is added to the game (you need to also own Yak-1 series 69 from Battle of Stalingrad to play it);
3. 3D Vision support is added thanks to the earlier Open VR API implementation;
4. Cockpit instruments were made more contrast on all planes for easier readability both in VR and on regular screens;
5. Forest drawing distance is increased by 1.5 times on Ultra graphics preset. The performance hit this causes is negligible on high-end video cards this preset is intended for;
6. The new graphical effect is shown when an aircraft impacts a water body and explodes;
7. The new graphics setting 'Grass quality' has been added with three possible choices: Normal, Distant and Ultra;
8. Forests drawing is optimized even more, improving performance at medium altitudes significantly;
9. LOD levels for many static objects were corrected, this should eliminate or reduce 'popping' issues;
10. The vertical line on AMD cards in the main menu is gone (it was caused by the undocumented AMD/Nvidia shader incompatibility);
11. Battle of Moscow airfields were reworked to reduce their performance hit, make judging the distance to the ground easier and improve their overall visual image. Please note that on middle-end video cards performance may degrade over any airfield if you increase the grass option setting;
12. New hotkeys were added for quick switching between the aircraft stations (RShift+0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 where 0 means the pilot and other numbers mean different gunner positions);
13. Aircraft ammo detonation probability was reduced;
14. LaGG-3 rudder oversensitivity is reduced;
15. IL-2 mod. 1943 startup procedure messages are shown correctly;
16. There is new option TacviewRecord=true/false in .sds DServer config files that can be used to prevent possible cheating on a server;
17. New parameter tacviewrecord = 0/1 is added to startup.cfg that turns TacView export on and off (off by default).
