In today's update, Loft tells us a litte about their progress and that they are "on a long and hard track that ends with a new build and the beginning of the early access period". Focus this time though is to answer a few questions that has been raised on the IL2 forum. He also published a few screenshots of our beloved IL2 in flight (check out the armored glass :) )
I feel I need to answer at least some of the questions that became topical recently. There are quite a lot of them and I’m going to give answers only to the most important ones, not to each and every one of course.
Speaking of the development in general, we’re on a long and hard track that ends with a new build and the beginning of the early access period. The first pair of fighters is practically complete and the next planes in the queue are already being worked on. The IL-2 is now being tested and Pe-2 will follow. Now it’s time to create an all new GUI and implement some game modes. What’s also on the top of the list is a bunch of graphical improvements, FX, AI tweaking and massive AI performance. We’ve got a lot do as you can see. So he we go.
