Jason Williams interview
That was a pretty thorough and enlightening interview, IMO. Froogle asked some poignant questions, and one has to appreciate Jason’s frank responses with regards to the Steam partnership, features, and the future of the Greatest Battles series. Good job by both.
So…might we get historical textures now?
Wow, that’s surprising news Jedi
DEV UPDATE #199
Summer is winding down and we’re getting back to our normal work schedule. Here are some early pics of our Me-262 model. Looks fast doesn’t it?
Sexiest thing I’ve seen all month.

While, as you know, we’re working on several projects at once, today we’ll tell you about our the current main one - Bodenplatte. The most important new tech we’re developing for it is the FM improvement to take into account the air compressibility and its influence on the aircraft stability and handling that is noticeable at high speeds. The late war aircraft are a pinnacle of the piston engine technology and they can approach the sonic barrier, especially in a dive. And of course this new tech is paramount for our first jet - Messerschmitt Me.262 ‘Schwalbe’. You may have wandered will the new tech work for the existing aircraft released before - it certainly will, we always update all aircraft to take advantage of the new tech so they all have the same modeling fidelity.
Meanwhile, our artists are working on several 3D models simultaneously (some are nearly complete and the work on others has just begun): Bf 109 K-4, Me 262 A-1, P-47D-28, Fw 190 D-9, Hawker Tempest Mk.V and P-51D-25.
We also decided to improve the recently released Fw 190 A-8. It will be able to carry 1000 kg SC 1000 bombs with reduced ring stabilizers and “M8 Panzerblitz 1” HE rockets and you will be able to remove the nose-mounted 13 mm MG 131 machine guns, resulting in four different modifications of this plane:
Fw 190 A-8 (fighter)
Fw 190 A-8 Sturmjäger (better armoured interceptor)
Fw 190 F-8 (attack plane)
Fw 190 G-8 (fighter-bomber)
So, while it may appear we have only one Fw 190 A-8 in the sim, in fact, you’ll have 4 different modifications. This is also true for many other aircraft - in one of the coming Dev Blog releases we’ll compile the complete list of aircraft including the possible modifications.
Since the words are best followed with visuals, today we can show you the WIP screenshots of Messerschmitt Bf 109 K-4 ‘Kurfürst’, Republic P-47D-28 ‘Thunderbolt’ and Focke-Wulf Fw 190 D-9 ‘Langnasen-Dora’:
Another 109 variant.
The beast lives.
What a great vid! In fact, it’s the best “unboxing video” I have ever watched. But I can’t help but notice how careless those guys were with their tools. It’s no wonder Americans taxpayers were paying $300 for a hammer years later!
