Today's update for BoS:
Traditionally the dev blog that announces adding new planes is the most welcomed and appreciated. Well, it’s that kind of dev blog today because tonight we give you Bf-109 G-2 and put the Yak-1 into multiplayer. Our tests of the Gustav showed us that it’s a strong fighter and the long-awaited release of the Yak in MP was necessary to help equal the chances of Soviet pilots. Both planes will become available today on all MP servers.
Beside the new planes, we present you a new variation of the clouds that actually have been shown earlier this week. The work is not yet complete however and your feedback mostly proves that we’ve been moving in the right direction and all that’s left to do is to improve the current result.
Also speaking of technologies: today’s update is going to include multi-GPU support for nVIDIA and AMD hardware. So, using two or more video-cards connected with SLI or Crossfire will give you a significant boost to performance. All owners of corresponding configs are recommended to turn them on in the SLI/Crossfire settings check out their effectiveness in BOS.
Other changes are included, mostly fixing bugs that you reported about last week. For instance, the steam loco won’t be going on high speed trough the fields anymore and AI pilots will spot them evading from the battle field. The prop damage model has been updated too - props will bend, break and be more realistic in general.
The team has delayed the release of this latest version - no update this weekend; maybe on Monday.
Unfortunatelly we are not going to release this early access update in time. Some new modules in the physics cause the game to crash in several particular situations (the process just stops because some sort of singularity appears in the game). We keep on working to resolve that issue and the new version will become available as soon as we fix it.
EDIT 2014-04-29 / 21.49 UTC
The update that includes Bf 109 G-2, propeller DM, clouds improvements and Yak-1 for multiplayer is now available. Thank you for you patience and for undestanding that you've been showing since the last Friday. The fresh version is on the servers already so please feel free to update and play
