A Ton of Good News for IL-2 Sturmovik Pilots

Dear Pilots,

we have a ton of good news for you this time!

First of all, this week saw our Sturmovik engine received a humongous update bringing it to version 2.006. The full list of changes and additions is available here. This is the biggest and most important update to the sim so far!

Our new DirectX 11 renderer and other performance optimizations improved performance to such an extent you may see a two or three-fold increase in framerate during complex scenes!

Early Access for Battle of Kuban just started with the Bf-109 G-4 being made available to those who Pre-Ordered Battle of Kuban. From now on, Battle of Kuban owners will receive regular updates that will gradually add more BOK content as it gets ready.

The long awaited flyable Ju-52/3m g4e has been released as well. This aircraft brings many new gameplay features and three new mission types to the current campaign – paratrooper drop, cargo parachute drop and cargo delivery. They can be used in complex multiplayer missions as well.

The first official scripted campaign made by Alexander -BlackSix- Timoshokov, "Ten Days of Autumn", is now available. This historical campaign recreates the events of one German squadron during the Battle of Moscow. Our new Scripted Campaign mode will allow everyone who has the talent to create and distribute free or paid (copy protected) campaigns. We'll tell you about how it's done in coming Developer Diaries.

In other news, IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover players will be delighted to learn 1C Game Studios has reached an agreement in principle to cooperate with Team Fusion on future commercial development of IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover. This includes giving Team Fusion access to the Cliffs of Dover source code so they may continue their work to fix and improve Cliffs of Dover and build commercial add-ons for the base title. Such cooperation was made possible only recently as full ownership rights to Cliffs of Dover was returned to 1C Company after many years. We can now allow Team Fusion to continue their work more comfortably and help turn Cliffs of Dover into the product is was intended to be. 1C Game Studios recognizes the hard work and passion that Team Fusion has exhibited in improving Cliffs of Dover and we welcome their continued dedication to the product. You can read the official announcement here.
