How does this effect Ultrapack which is used predominantely online? I have no clue. As far as I have understood the MOD-people decided to "Break" with official patches after 4.10. If this patch with it's VERY interesting new features change things I don't know, but I DO know that the 6DOF now IN official IL2 WILL have an effect on usage. As far as I have understood from reading Bananaforum the official 6DOF will work a little differently than the mod 6DOF.

Either way, The Daidalos Team has really come up with some great new features in this big upcoming patch.
