Post by: [ret]azreal on 13-07-2011, 18:07:18
And we are back today with the third part of our release update series. Today is my personal favorite of this week, as we are talking all things that fly! Update is coming in 1 hour, 30 minutes.

Enjoy!

EDIT: the pre-release client files will be released today as well.

Must gain access! Must gain access!  >:( [PS I was only joking I know what it means to update websites and have people crashing the server by constantly refreshing]- ACCESS GAINED! Woohoo!  ;D

Finally no more claustrophobic cockpits. Maybe I will start hitting something now. Also I missed not seeing the instrument panel and moving yoke and throttle.

Suggestion: When you download the torrents, do not forget to seed. Make it easier for more people to download the files!

"In what is perhaps the biggest and most noticeable change, all aircraft use a new physics model, including a greatly increased role of gravity and stalling, stiffer flaps, and unique handling characteristics making every aircraft unique. In order to win the battle, use the plane's characteristics to your advantage."

New flight model, eh? Hope you didn't copy that from IL-2 where Spitfire is über superweapon and FW190 totally impossible to control ;D Is the "forced ceiling" still in place? Raising that (if possible) would help the Jug, Mussie and 109 since they could properly zoom'n'boom in a2a.

I might yet start learning flying in FH2. Especially now that the convergence has been adjusted to something more realistic and tolerable.

Sad thing is, I'll probably download the whole version faster than the patch...

P.S. Seeding at 30 kb/s... yeah that's all I can get out of my crappy provider...  :P

Seeding 24/7/365.

A little suggestion to developers: instead of 3 torrents of full install, I'd publish a single torrent with 3 files. From my experience, it would be easier for torrent clients to deal with peers/seeds (1 connection versus 3) and download/upload queues.

Incremental patches are mostly for people with slow internet connections.
Full patches are always more stable than the incremental patches on older machines, but we've tested both and they both worked fine. I made a full install myself just for the 'lulz' and the cleanliness.

I have installed the incremental patch over my puplic version already mate and it works fine i have tested it plenty and that is what i will be using for puplic play from tomorrow, and i only downloadet the 3 part release to suport the community and help seed because i have both clients installed already a beta version and release version etc.

What would totally make plane combat rock is if the mg and especially cannon sounds for aircrafts have changed to something less gamey.

I hope the handling is to a good percentage's liking though. People moaned and groaned about it in 2.0, then when it was changed in 2.15,  they moaned and groaned that they wanted it a la 2.0...

Hopefully, we wont get 2.15 sympathizes after 2.4...
