Almost made the Wednesday deadline (if you are in the US, hey we made it! ;) )

The last few hours have been absolutely manic as messages went back and forth making sure we included as much detail of the changes that have been made for patch v4.00. That's the reason it's now 1.20am in the UK and I'm posting this...then getting some sleep!

Below is the readme for changes in Patch v4.00, it's taken a long time to get to where it is today, but we hope you'll agree, it's been worth the wait?

Along the way we have shown many videos of work in progress and should anything you have seen not be included, it's not because it will never be in a Team Fusion patch, it's just because we wanted to get this Patch out to the community. We can now start re-grouping and work out the next course of attack as we strive to make Cliffs of Dover into the Butterfly that has now shed it's Cocoon (it's late, I'm getting a little poetic, ;) )

Anyway, take a look at the other thread which has video showing some of the changes, which I posted earlier, if you wish to see some of the following in action, but without further delay, we proudly present, the Patch v4.00 readme:

README FULL VERSION

Aircraft

* Added aircraft:
Bf-109E-1B
Bf-110C-2
Bf-110C-4N
Bf-110C-4NJG (Nightfighter)
Bf-110C-7 Late

Ju 88:

* Fixed JU88 crash when moving to bombsight view.

SINGLE ENGINE FLIGHT MODELS (FMs)


Stall modelling Changes

1) 109 Stall Characteristics adjusted. 109 Stall now more benign, instead of 'snapping and dropping a wing' at the point it enters stall, the aircraft 'mushes' into stall and unless pushed very hard, simply loses altitude without noticeable loss of aileron control, wing drop or spin. This more closely reflects historical tests. Aircraft does not turn better, simply when entering stall, flight effects are different.
2) Spitfire Stall Characteristics adjusted. Spitfire stall now displays more extreme 'Snap and wing drop' characteristics if pushed too far, especially in high speed stall situations, as per historical descriptions. Number of rotations required to exit spin adjusted to reflect historical tests. Again, turn capability not affected, players who 'ride' the edge of the stall will see the same turn performance.
3) Hurricane Stall Characteristics adjusted. Number of rotations required to exit spin adjusted to reflect historical testing.
4) 110 Stall Characteristics adjusted. At the stall, it now shows less of a tendency to drop a wing or enter a spin, as per historical testing. Turn capability is unchanged.

High Speed Maneuver

All aircraft react more slowly to control inputs at higher speeds, whether in lateral (rolling) maneuver or longitudinal. (elevator responsiveness) These effects vary from aircraft to aircraft, depending on the historical characteristics.

109's

Pilots will notice gradual reduction in aileron response beginning at approximately 320 kmh. At 600 plus kmh full aileron will only provide limited response. Elevators see a reduction beginning at approximately 400kmh continuing to close to terminal speeds when full back elevator provides only very incremental pitch change.

Spitfire

Spitfires roll rates at high speed follow a very similar pattern to that of the 109's, with a slightly slower decrease from a slower starting point, with both aircraft responding similarly at speeds over 600kmh/400mph. The Spitfire elevator remains effective right up to high speeds, but pilots need to be cautious as the early Spitfire high speed characteristic of being able to pull more G's with elevator inputs than the airframe can sustain is a critical factor to balance against attempts to turn that little bit tighter. Wing loss can easily result from ham handed efforts.

Hurricane

The Hurricane sees a slower reduction in aileron effectiveness at high speeds, with elevator response falling between the Spitfire and 109. There is a potential for structural damage, (less than the Spitfire) if pilots are unwary or overly aggressive with the Hurricane elevator.

Low Speed Roll rates

Based on very careful examination of the historical documents, 109 roll rates at low speeds are improved in relation to Spitfire, and especially to Hurricane. Players will notice a distinct advantage in this type of maneuver for the German fighter.

Overheating Characteristics

All aircraft's overheat characteristics have been adjusted to better reflect the historical accounts. Aircraft will now be more likely to overheat at altitudes under 3000 meters/10,000 feet, players can no longer run full open throttle at sea level almost indefinitely. Conversely, aircraft are less likely to overheat at higher altitudes especially over 6000 meters/20,000 feet.

109 Climb and Supercharger Full Throttle Heights

All 109 climb profiles have been adjusted to reflect more historically accurate performance at lower and very high altitudes. Players will see more performance at low altitudes, less performance at high. Overall climb times to ceiling are the same.

All 109 Supercharger Full Throttle Heights have been reduced to historical levels. In TF 3.0 and TF 3.01 FTH's were elevated higher than those which were provided by the actual superchargers to allow the game's 109's to reach close to their historical ceilings. However, improvements in TF's understanding of the game systems has allowed a reduction in FTH without a loss of ceiling or climb. This change also allows for more historical overheat patterns at high altitudes and the use of higher rpms over 6000 meters as per historical. (see below)

All of these changes will improve the historical accuracy of the Sim, as well as making both Red and Blue side aircraft closer in performance and more competitive against opposing types at all Altitude levels.

109 RPM limits over 6000 meters

In the Fall of 1940, the Luftwaffe issued a notification regarding RPM limits for the DB601A and DB601N engine in use over 6000 meters. Pilots were authorized to raise the RPM limits to the following:

DB601A: 2600 rpm over 6000 meters (109E-1, E-1B, E-3, E-3B, E-4, E-4B)

DB601N: 2800 rpm over 6000 meters (109E-4N)

There is an indication these limits were already in use by Geschwader pilots prior to the official announcement, in any case, pilots can use them at any point during the campaign. Pilots should use caution and ensure overheating does not occur when using high rpms.

109E-4N

In TF 3.0 and TF 3.01, the E-4N was limited to 1.35ata, based on reports indicating the DB601N engine was de-rated by the Luftwaffe for maintenance reasons. However, it seems the time period of this ratings is not conclusively known, and it is quite likely the de-rating happened after the battle was over.

Further research has also indicated the TF 3.0/3.01 E-4N performance was overrated, the climb and speed performance were not achievable with the reduced power settings seen with that aircraft.

In the interest of providing a more accurate FM, but also a competitive aircraft for the Blue side which can match up with the Spitfire IIA, the E-4N now has 1.42ata WEP power enabled as well as the increased climb rate setting. The E-4N also has a more critical window for overheat modelling, so pilots should exercise caution and use appropriate radiator settings when using WEP power or Accelerated Climb settings.

This new E-4N model is now modelled as accurately as research and available documents can provide.

New Power Settings:

30 minute climb: 1.25ata/2400rpm
10 minute Accelerated climb: 1.35ata/2400rpm
5 minute rating: 1.35ata/2600rpm
WEP power 1 minute rating: 1.42ata/2600rpm

Rudder Trim default setting adjusted

All 109's have their rudder trim set to historical default position. This gives normal trim at 344 kph in level flight. (previously the original game 109's had been set to 510 kph for normal trim)

Spitfires and Hurricanes have their rudder trims also set to default.

Hurricane Flight Model

The Hurricane's Flight Model and Engine performance has been extensively revised with changes to the climb pattern, (although times to altitude remain similar) and its stall pattern, turn and roll. Initial turn rate has been reduced, but sustained turn is improved. All of these changes should make the aircraft more competitive, especially at higher altitudes.

There is also a Night Fighter version of the Hurricane Mk I Rotol 100 octane introduced.

Fiat G-50

The Fiat G-50 has its Climb, Roll rate and High Speed Maneuverability revised. The G-50 was under-modelled in particular in climb rate in TF 3.0/3.01 but now has a sustained climb to 3000 meters which is superior to the Hurricane.

Tiger Moth

The Tiger Moth has its Engine, Speed, Climb, Maneuver and Overheat characteristics revised to model more closely the delightful acrobatic trainer which the real aircraft was, one which pilots like "Buzz" Beurling loved to stunt in when not on Ops.

TWIN ENGINE FIGHTER FLIGHT MODELS

Blenheim IVF

Blenheim high speed maneuver and overheat characteristics revised.

Two new flyable models introduced:

Blenheim IVF: This is the standard Day fighter, with under-nose gunpod of four .303's.
Blenheim IVNF: Night fighter version of the above.

Bf-110's

All Bf-110's have had their High Speed Maneuverability, Roll, Climb and Overheat revised to better reflect the historical record.

Four new models are introduced:

110C-2: This is the earlier version of the C-4, lighter, but less well protected with armour. It operated in the spring and summer of 1940.
110C-4N: This is a C-4 equipped with the DB601N engine, the same as equips the 109E-4N. The 110C-4N operated from approximately October of 1940.
110C-7 (late): This is a 110C-7 with WEP power enabled, as well as Auto Prop Pitch control. This aircraft operated in the Fall of 1940
110C-4 NJG: This is a standard C-4 with Night fighter colour scheme.

OTHER TWIN ENGINE TYPES

BR20

The BR20 has revised Climb, Maximum Speed, Overheat and High Speed Maneuverability. It has Level bombing autopilot enabled.

High Speed Maneuverability

The following Twin and Four engine bomber or attack types have their High Speed Maneuverability revised:

Heinkel 111H/P
Ju-87
Ju-88A
Dornier 17/215
Wellington
Sunderland
FW-200
Beaufighter
Blenheim
Walrus

Blenheim Bomber

Blenheim Bomber has autopilot added and default aileron trim adjusted.


DAMAGE MODELLING

Overall, damage changes were meshed with Weapons changes to create a better synthesis of values. In most instances, twin engine bombers were strengthened. In combination with weapons changes, it will now be more difficult for players to shoot down enemy bombers in the numbers seen in the Vanilla game. Players will also notice far fewer pilot kills from the dead six o'clock position. Historically, except for 20mm AP rounds, most ammunition of the era was incapable of piercing multiple layers of single engined fighters aluminum and armour, or the heavier aluminum structures of bombers.

Single Engine Fighter Aircraft

Single Engine Fighter aircraft have had the most attention paid to their damage models. Based on known construction details, the 109's, Spitfires, Hurricanes were very extensively revised to better reflect the level of durability of each aircraft. In the case of the Hurricane, the aircraft was generally strengthened. In the case of the Spitfire, it was brought down to a more realistic durability level. The 109's values remained much the same, but changes were made to sections where the original game undervalued or excessively strengthened the structures. The Fiat G-50 was subject to fewer changes, as information on this aircraft is less available and still being accumulated.

Twin Engine Fighters

Both the Blenheim and Bf-110s saw reductions in their overall structural strength, but increases in the durability of the engine mounts and the engines themselves.

Twin Engine Bombers and Attack Aircraft

Changes to Bombers and Attack Aircraft was generally in the form of strengthening their engines and engine mounts. The Vanilla game exaggerates the ability of players to damage engines or shoot the engines off these types, in fact these were some of the strongest structures in these aircraft. The only aircraft in this category to see large scale changes to other areas was the Heinkel 111H/P, which sees the vanilla game's immense structural values brought down to more reasonable levels.


VEHICLES AND ARTILLERY

Players now can man some of the various vehicles and artillery/Flak in the game. Unlike the Aircraft in the game, the same level of detailed accuracy is not possible at this point, (although the game would allow us to develop very sophisticated vehicles if we chose) so our decision at this point in time was to focus on playability. The vehicles and guns are a way for players to relax and take a break from the sometimes intensely serious business of flying one of CoD's aircraft, and just have fun. They can also be incorporated into online scenarios in a way which can add excitement and interest. Players should understand they are a work in progress and not finalized by any means.

At this point, vehicles and artillery are really only useable in multi-player online gaming.


The following types are enabled:

Vehicles

German

Sdkfz 251/A Halftrack
Sdkfz 222 Armoured Car
Pz Mk IIC Light Tank
Pz Mk IIIF Medium Tank
Pz Mk 38T Medium Tank (captured Czech)
Pz Mk IVD Heavy Tank

French

Somua S-35 Medium Tank
Char 1 Bis Heavy Tank

British

Guy Mk IA Armoured Car*
Vickers Mk VIC Light Tank*
Valentine Mk I Medium Tank
Matilda IIA Heavy Tank

*Work in progress vehicles, currently have gunsight bugs


Flak/Artillery

Bofors 40mm AAA
Zwillingssockel Twin 7.92mm AAA
Flak 30 20mm AAA
Flak 32 88mm AAA
3 Inch AAA
105mm Artillery

All vehicles and artillery have had the AI engagement ranges reduced to allow the players to compete against the AI with the limited gunsights currently available.

Many of the vehicles have had their armour values modified, and the weapons penetration and effectiveness has also been adjusted to better balance the sides. As it stands now, without these changes, the heavier French and British vehicles would have very significant advantages which would be difficult to overcome. Until we can enable some of the less effective and more numerous French and British types, we have to take this step. Players will still find the French and British heavy tanks to be superior, but this is balanced by the better Ground attack capability of the German aircraft in the game.

DEFAULT AI PILOT SKILL LEVELS

With the changes to the high speed maneuverability of the games aircraft, this has also introduced a problem for the AI aircraft. The changes result in a tendency to 'Lawndart' or crash during landing.

To counter this, the AI default skill levels have been adjusted to allow the non-human pilots to better manage their aircraft.

The skill levels for 'Rookie', 'Average', 'Veteran' and 'Ace' have all been changed. Missions which were constructed prior to the changes in TF 4.0 will automatically have the default skills of the pilots in those missions changed to the new standards. Custom skill settings are unaffected.

It is recommended that Mission Builders use the new default skill levels whenever possible to avoid unnecessary AI loss.

We do expect in the future to examine the element of AI in the game in more detail.

General

* Searchlights
The searchlight will work the first time you run a night time mission. After that you will need to restart the sim to fly another one, or the search beam will simply not be visible. It's a very hard bug to crack and we didn't make it for this release.
* Fixed the excessive lighting of the bulkhead behind Instrument panel when cockpit lights/ gunsight are switched on.
* Altered the transparency of windscreen/ gunsight glass for the Hurricane NF version so it does not 'black out' in low light levels (night)
If flown in daytime this will look slightly too transparent but makes night interceptions possible.
* ASI is changed to correct 700Kmh type, not the later 900kmh version .
Some variations of ATA gauge types in different models
FL numbers and manufacturers markings added.
*British303_B_Mk6z "DeWilde" round changed from an explosive to incendiary round to reflect historical properties. It now contains a thermal delivery of ammonium nitrate that will ignite on contact making a flash and penetrates white hot into the target.
================================================== ==============
* Added a Teamspeak interface to the in-game windows. Hopefully this can solve some of the issues with the notifier.
To use it:
1.- Copy the "CLOD TeamSpeak Integration PluginXX.dll" to your TS plugins folder and enable it in TS.
2.- In any in-game window, edit the properties and add the "TeamSpeak" tool.

The tool allows to choose seeing only those talking or every one on the channel.

Since the plugin can stop working with new TS versions, users should check the TF site for new updates.
* Added an in-game window tool to show the heading when driving a tank.
* Artillery selection screen will now show the grid location of each gun.
================================================== ==============
* Pic of your loved one
This mod is turned off by default. To select a picture to use go to the folder [my documents]\1C SoftClub\il-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover -MOD\DashPics
Here you will find the following folders:
* Selected -the mod will use the pic named "1.tga" from this folder (PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE THIS FOLDER EMPTY WITHOUT A "1.tga" FILE)
* Templates -some "stock" pictures. To use one, copy it to the "Selected" folder and rename it to "1.tga".
This folder also includes a photoshop template. If you do a coustom picture, please note that you need to edit the alpha layer as well (included in the template) and the picture MUST be in tga format.
================================================== ==============
* Corrected available ammunition for German 20mm MG FF and MG FF/M to match historical records:
MG FF:
-Sprenggranate L'spur m.Zerl (134g AP round with small HE payload, with tracer and self destruction)
-Panzergranate L'spur (134g AP with tracer)
-Panzergranate (134g AP)

MG FF/M:
-Panzergranate (115g AP)
-Panzerbrandgranate Phosphor o.Zerl (115g AP/I without self destruction)
-Panzersprenggranate L'spur m.Zerl (115g AP with small HE payload, with tracer and self destruction)
-Brandsprenggranate L'spur m.Zerl (115g HE/I with tracer and self destruction)
-Brandgranate L'spur o.Zerl (115g I with tracer without self destruction)
-M-Geschoss m.Zerl (92g HE with self destruction)

Please note that;
1. the change of the "Panzerbrandgranate" with "Panzergranate" is purely a name change as it was a pure AP round even in "vanilla Clod".
2. we removed the "Panzerbrandgranate (Elektron)" and filled it's place with the "Panzersprenggranate" since there is no reason to keep both the "Phosphor" and "Elektron" variants of this round (The game engine can't model the "Elektron's" historical payload of elektronthermit)
================================================== ==============

Maps

* Winter map
* Autumn map
* English Channel Summer alternative map re-texture.
* Clip maps re-texture for map beyond distance Lod.
* Spectral horizon lod changed for distant buildings.
* Removed Yellow Lod bug on buildings at night.
* Removed building lights at night.
*Tree Color changed
* Bomb Craters texture changed.
* Bomb Craters added to FMB for mission creation.
* Vertical grass textures re-textured.
* Runways and taxiways re-textured.

New Missions

* Night time intercept over London mission. Blenheim and Hurricane NF intercept of single bombers.
* Dawn Patrol-defense of invasion barges over Boulogne against multiple RAF bombers. 110 NF version (airstart) and a 109 (scramble). Use flak and searchlights to find targets.

Skins

* Historical markings for all marks of the bf 109. Historical paint schedules for the different stages of BoB will be supplied as separate downloads.

BF 110:

* Added NJG 1 to the Zerstoerer/Destroyer selection menu with a skin for each Staffel
Warning: the installation of the hakenkreuz mod will cause a failure with the balkenkreuz (swastika instead of crosses)

The team did such a fine job in their written presentations, it was mostly a matter of copy/paste - cut/paste and move the puzzle pieces around. I wish the whole community could witness like I did how this dedicated team works together so efficiently with very little drama.

Personally, I can't wait to throw that new Tiger moth around in the sky.

Guys be careful with the 109s now! Especiallyat low alt! The new elevator control at high speed will make it difficult to pull out of dives at high speed... BnZ will get harder, believe me!;)

Did a 1vs1 with me in a Hurricane (which is deadly now at low speed btw) and a fellow beta tester in a 109E4 had he couldnt get a shot at me while BnZing for prob 15mins. A turn at the exact moment and the 109 would unsuccessfully zoom by at high speed.

Very good indeed!

With the damage modelling, as the 109 radiator hit box now been reduced so it is not the entire inner section of wing, and does the Spitfire now have a radiator hit box?

Many thanks

No mention of the LOD fix? Is this intentional ie we all know about it, or it's not made it into the patch, or its an oversight/Reddog's an idiot and can't read?

Also, this is excellent, just pissed I'm gonna miss out on a week's worth of new patch while i'm away.

So what specifically where the changes? Faster? Slower? Reduced? Increased?

Great :thumbsup:

But I'm concerned about this quote:


In the interest of providing a more accurate FM, but also a competitive aircraft for the Blue side which can match up with the Spitfire IIA, the E-4N now has 1.42ata WEP power enabled as well as the increased climb rate setting. The E-4N also has a more critical window for overheat modelling, so pilots should exercise caution and use appropriate radiator settings when using WEP power or Accelerated Climb settings.

I really don't know what are you talking about here. Spit IIa have a very slim chance against 109E4. Tried it many times 1 vs 1 , merge on same altitude and E and after the first merge
109 completely overtake control of the battle. Not to mention E4N.

Current Spit IIa is not the one from the old 1.05 patch and earlier ones.

Please read the whole paragraph :thumbsup:


109E-4N

In TF 3.0 and TF 3.01, the E-4N was limited to 1.35ata, based on reports indicating the DB601N engine was de-rated by the Luftwaffe for maintenance reasons. However, it seems the time period of this ratings is not conclusively known, and it is quite likely the de-rating happened after the battle was over.

Further research has also indicated the TF 3.0/3.01 E-4N performance was overrated, the climb and speed performance were not achievable with the reduced power settings seen with that aircraft.

In the interest of providing a more accurate FM, but also a competitive aircraft for the Blue side which can match up with the Spitfire IIA, the E-4N now has 1.42ata WEP power enabled as well as the increased climb rate setting. The E-4N also has a more critical window for overheat modelling, so pilots should exercise caution and use appropriate radiator settings when using WEP power or Accelerated Climb settings.

Any chance of publishing performance graphs? (the usual speed/climb vs altitude)

p.s. and just for the record, I am very sceptical about the DB 601N ever operating on 1.42ata. That may have been the design goal with an output of 1400 PS max, but I doubt they ever cleared it for anything else than 1.35ata.

Therfore, I demand, on the verge of hysterics the utter and immidiate nerfing of the E-4/N to 1.35ata performance levels. Which are completely unkknown and at best could be calculated from known tests of Bf 109E. Which are highly debated also. :D :D

Flugmodelle der einmotorigen Flieger

Verhalten bei Strömungsabrissen

1) Strömungsabrissverhalten der Bf 109 angepasst. Die Bf 109 ist nun am Anfang des Strömungsabrisses etwas freundlicher und rutscht weniger schnell über einen Flügel ab. Die Steuerung wird beim Strömungsabriss zäher, man verliert aber nicht gleich die Kontrolle sondern verliert an Höhe. Dies entspricht eher historischen Tests. Die Bf 109 kurvt nach wie vor gleich gut, es wurde nur das Flugverhalten bei Strömungsabriss geändert.

2) Strömungsabrissverhalten der Spitfire geändert. Die Spitfire rollt nun etwas stärker über einen Flügel ab, wenn man zu stark zieht. Dies passiert vor allem bei Manövern bei hoher Geschwindigkeit. Auch dies entspricht besser historischen Tests. Die Anzahl Umdrehungen um aus dem Trudeln zu kommen wurde korrigiert. Auch hier wurde nur das Verhalten bei Strömungsabriss, aber nicht das Kurvenverhalten geändert.

3) Strömungsabrissverhalten der Hurricane angepasst. Anzahl Umdrehungen um aus dem Trudeln zu kommen entsprechen nun den historischen Tests.

4) Strömungsabriss der Bf 110 angepasst. Die 110 rutscht nun gemäss historischen Tests weniger über einen Flügel ab. Auch hier wurde das Kurvenverhalten nicht geändert.

Manöver bei hoher Geschwindigkeit

Alle Flugzeuge reagieren nun langsamer auf Steuerbefehle bei hoher Geschwindigkeit. Dies betrifft sowohl Höhen- als auch Querruder. Diese neuen Effekte variieren bei den Verschiedenen Flugzeugtypen und entsprechen historischen Quellen.


Bf 109

Piloten werden bemerken, dass ab ca. 320 km/h das Höhenruder langsamer beginnt zu reagieren. Bei 600 km/h wird voller Ruderausschlag am Joystick nur eine limitierte Reaktion des Flugzeugs zur Folge haben. Das Höhenruder beginnt bei 400 km/h steifer zu werden. Je schneller das Flugzeug, desto geringer die Reaktion auf Höhenruderbewegungen.

Spitfire

Die Rollrate der Spitfire verhält sich ähnliche wie die der Bf 109, die Reduktion der Querrudersteuerung beginnt aber bei langsamerer Geschwindigkeit, nimmt dafür aber auch langsamer zu. Bei 600 km/h verhält sich die Spitfire aber wieder praktisch identisch wie die Bf 109. Das Höhenruder der Spitfire bleibt auch bei hohen Geschwindigkeiten effektiv, Piloten sollen aber gewarnt sein: Da härtere Kurven geflogen werden können, steigt auch die Gefahr, dass der Flügel durch die G-Kräfte abgerissen wird.



Hurricane

Die Querruder der Hurricane bleiben auch bei hoher Geschwindigkeit relativ effektiv, die Effektivität des Höhenruders bei hohen Geschwindigkeiten liegt zwischen der Spitfire und der Bf 109. Auch bei der Hurricane können Schäden durch zu starke G-Kräfte entstehen.

Rollraten bei tiefer Geschwindigkeit

Nach sorgfältigem Studium von historischen Dokumenten wurde das Rollverhalten der Bf 109 bei tiefen Geschwindigkeiten geändert. Die Bf 109 rollt nun schneller als die Spitfire und die Hurricane und hat somit bei Rollmanövern bei tiefer Geschwindigkeit einen leichten Vorteil gegenüber den englischen Jägern.


Überhitzungsverhalten der Motoren

Dies wurde für alle Flugzeuge überarbeitet um historischen Quellen zu entsprechen. Die Flugzeuge überhitzen nun unter 3000 Meter schneller und unendlich langes Fliegen bei Vollgas ist nicht mehr möglich. In grösseren Höhen, speziell ab 6000 Meter ist die Wahrscheinlichkeit nun geringer, den Motor zu überhitzen.

Bf 109 Steigleistung, Lader und Gipfelhöhen

Alle Bf 109 Varianten wurden bei den Steigeigenschaften überarbeitet um historischen Quellen besser zu entsprechen. Generell wird die Leistung in tiefen Höhen besser, in hohen Höhen schlechter sein.

Alle 109 Supercharger Full Throttle Heights wurden auf ein historisches Niveau gesenkt. In TF 3.0 und TF 3.01 wurden die FTH`s künstlich erhöht, damit die korrekte Gipfelhöhe erreicht werden konnte. Da Team Fusion nun den Spielcode besser versteht, können wir die FTH herabsenken, ohne dass die Steigfähigkeit oder die Gipfelhöhe darunter leidet. Diese Änderung erlaubt es auch, höherer Drehzahlen über 6000 Meter zu verwenden.

Alle Veränderungen wurden durchgeführt um die Simulation näher an die Realität zu bringen.

Bf 109: Maximale Drehzahl über 6000 Meter

Im Herbst 1940 wurde es den Piloten erlaubt, höhere Drehzahlen über 6000 Meter zu verwenden (Motoren: DB601A und DB601N). Dies wurde im Spiel ebenfalls so umgesetzt.

DB601A: 2600 Umdrehungen über 6000 Meter (109E-1, E-1B, E-3, E-3B, E-4, E-4B)

DB601N: 2800 Umdrehungen über 6000 Meter (109E-4N)

Es gibt Indizien dafür, das Piloten die höheren Drehzahlen schon vor der offiziellen Erlaubnis gebraucht haben. Auf jeden Fall sollten höhere Drehzahlen nur vorsichtig verwendet werden. Die Überhitzungsgefahr steigt.

109E-4N

Im TF 3.0 und TF 3.01 - Patch, die E-4N war auf 1.35ata limitiert. Dies basierte auf Berichten, gemäss denen der DB601N-Motor aus Wartungstechnischen Gründen limitiert wurde. Wie es jedoch scheint, ist die Zeitperiode der Limitierung nicht gänzlich bekannt und es ist wahrscheinlich dass die Limitierung erst nach der Luftschlacht um England vorgenommen wurde.

Weitere Nachforschungen haben zudem gezeigt, dass die E-4N in den Patches 3.0 und 3.1 zu stark war. Mit den limitierten Motorleistungen des Flugzeugs konnten die Geschwindigkeiten und Steigleistungen in der Realität nicht erreicht werden.

Um ein historisches Flugmodell beizubehalten und um der Blauen Seite ein Flugzeug zur Verfügung zu stellen, welches der Spitfire llA ebenbürtig ist, wurde die E-4N nun mit eine 1.42ata-Notleistung ausgestattet. Weiter kann im Steigflug nun auf leicht höherer Motorleistung geflogen werden. Dafür ist die E-4N nun empfindlicher gegenüber Motorüberhitzung. Piloten sollten also vorsichtig fliegen und die Kühler im Auge behalten.

Alles in allem ist das neue Modell der E-4N nun so genau nachgebildet, wie es Nachforschungen und historische Dokumente erlauben.

Die neuen Leistungsgrenzen

30 Minuten Steigflug: 1.25ata/2400rpm
10 Minuten starker Steigflug: 1.35ata/2400rpm
5 Minuten erhöhte Leistung: 1.35ata/2600rpm
1 Minute Notleistung: 1.42ata/2600rpm

Höhenrudertrimmung: Standardposition korrigiert

Alle Bf 109-Varianten spawnen nun mit der historischen korrekten Standard-Trimmeinstellung. Die Trimmung ist in dieser Position für 344 km/h im Geradeausflug eingestellt. Vorher war die Trimmung für 510km/h im Geradeausflug eingestellt.

Hurricane Flugmodell

Das Flugmodell der Hurricane wurde bezüglich Steigverhalten, Strömungsabrissverhalten, Kurven- und Rollverhalten stark überarbeitet und entspricht nun besser historischen Quellen. Die Änderungen verbessern die Leistungen der Hurricane speziell in grossen Höhen

Es wurde eine Nachtjägerversion der Hurricane Mk I Rotol 100 octane hinzugefügt.

Fiat G-50 Flugmodell

Das Steigerverhalten, die Rollrate und Manöverierbarkit der G-50 wurde stark überarbeitet. Die G-50 war zu schwach bezüglich Steigleistung , hat nun aber eine Steigleistung welche jene der Hurricane im Bereich 0-3000 Meter sogar übertrifft.

Tiger Moth

Motor, Geschwindigkeit, Steigfähigkeit, Manöverierbarkeit und Überhitzungsverhalten der Tiger Moth wurden überarbeitet. Das Flugmodell entspricht jetzt eher dem leichten Akrobatiktrainer, der die Tiger Moth in der Realität war.


Flugmodelle zweimotoriger Flieger

Blenheim IVF

Die Manöverierfähigkeit bei hoher Geschwindigkeit so wie das Überhitzungsverhalten wurden überarbeitet.

Zwei neue fliegbare Modelle wurden hinzugefügt:


Blenheim IVF: Standard Jäger-Version mit 4 x .303 MGs unter der Nase
Blenheim IVNF: Nachtjägerversion mit gleicher Bewaffnung

Bf-110's

Alle Modelle der Bf 110 wurden bezüglich Manövrierfähigkeit bei hohen Geschwindigkeiten, Rollraten, Steigraten und Überhitzungsverhalten überarbeitet und entsprechen nun den historischen Quellen besser.

Vier neue Versionen stehen zur Verfügung:

110C-2: Leichtere Version der C-4, allerdings auch schwächer gepanzert. Im Einsatz im Frühling uns Sommer 1940.
110C-4N: Modell C-4 mit DB601N-Motor (gleicher Motor wie in der 109E-4N). Im Einsatz ab ca. Oktober 1940.
110C-7 (späte Version): Version der C-7 mit Notleistung so wie automatischer Luftschraubenverstellung. Im Einsatz im Herbst 1940.
110C-4 NJG: Standard C-4 Version mit Nachtjäger-Tarnschema

Weitere zweimotorige Flieger

BR20

Wurde im Bezug auf Steigleistung, maximaler Geschwindigkeit, Manövrierbarkeit bei hohen Geschindigkeiten und Überhitzungsverhalten überarbeitet. Der Autopilot fürs Level-Bomben funktioniert nun.

High Speed Maneuverability

Folgende Modelle wurden ebenfalls im Bezug auf Manövrierfähigkeit bei hohen Geschwindigkeiten überarbeitet:

Heinkel 111H/P
Ju-87
Ju-88A
Dornier 17/215
Wellington
Sunderland
FW-200
Beaufighter
Blenheim
Walrus

Blenheim Bomber

Die Bomberversion der Blenheim verfügt nun über einen Autopiloten und die Standardtrimmung wurde geändert.

Schadensmodell

Insgesamt wurden änderungen im Schadensmodell dadurch erreicht, dass die Waffen aber auch die Stärke (=Fähigkeit Schaden zu ertragen) der Flugzeuge geändert wurde. In den meisten Bereichen wurden die zweimotorige Bomber verstärkt. Zusammen mit den geänderten Waffen wird es nun schwieriger sein, Bomber so zahlreich wie zuvor abzuschiessen.
Weiteres wird es schwieriger sein, Pilot-Kills aus der exakten 6-uhr-Position zu erzielen. Abgesehen von der 20mm panzerbrechenden Munition hatten die Geschosse der damaligen Zeit zu wenig Durchschlagskraft um mehrere Schichten Aluminium und Panzerung zu durchbrechen.

Einmotorige Jäger

Einmotorige Jäger erhielten am meisten Aufmerksamkeit bei der Revision der Schadensmodelle. Anhand von uns bekannten Konstruktionsdetails wurde die Widerstandsfähigkeit der Bf 109, Spitfire und Hurricane sehr intensiv überarbeitet um den historischen Modellen zu entsprechen.
Generell wurde die Hurricane widerstandsfähiger gemacht. Die Widerstandsfähigkeit der Spitfire wurde auf ein realistisches Nivea herabgesetzt. Die Bf 109 blieb in den meisten Bereichen gleich stark. Einzelne Bereiche wurden aber stark geändert.
Bei der G-50 wurde weniger überarbeitet, da wir immer noch Informationen zu diesem Flugzeug zusammentragen.


Zweimotorige Jäger

Die Bf-110 wie auch die Blenheim wurden in der Struktur etwas schwächer gemacht, dafür sind die Motoren und auch Motoraufhängungen stabiler.

Zweimotorige Bomber
Die Bomber erhielten vor allem widerstandsfähigere Motoren und Motoraufhängungen. Das einzige Flugzeug, welches grosse Änderungen erhielt, ist die HE 111H/P. Die Widerstandsfähigkeit auf ein vernünftiges Niveau abgesenkt.


VEHICLES AND ARTILLERY

Spieler können nun Positionen an verschiedenen Fahrzeugen und Artillerie/Flakgeschützen einnehmen. Natürlich ist der Simulationsgrad von Fahrzeugen nicht so hoch wie bei Flugzeugen, auch wenn die Game-Engine dies erlauben würde.
Wir haben uns jedoch entschlossen, vor allem auf einfache Spielbarkeit zu setzen. Die Bodenfahrzeuge sollen für den Spieler eine Möglichkeit sein, eine Pause vom fliegen zu machen und einfach Spass zu haben. Das Online-Spiel wird sicherlich von den Fahrzeugen profitieren.
Wichtig ist uns, dass die Spieler verstehen, dass die Fahrzeuge sich in einer sehr frühen Entwicklungsphase befinden und noch lange nicht fertig entwickelt sind.

Im Moment sind Fahrzeuge und Artillerie leider nur im Online-Spiel wirklich brauchbar.

Folgende Typen wurden hinzugefügt:

Fahrzeuge

Deutsch:
Sdkfz 251/A Schützenpanzerwagen
Sdkfz 222 Panzerwagen
Pz Mk IIC Leichter Panzer
Pz Mk IIIF Mittlerer Panzer
Pz Mk 38T Mittlerer Panzer (Tschechische Kriegsbeute)
Pz Mk IVD Schwerer Panzer

French

Somua S-35 Mittlerer Panzer
Char 1 Bis Schwerer Panzer

British

Guy Mk IA Armoured Car*
Vickers Mk VIC Light Tank*
Valentine Mk I Medium Tank
Matilda IIA Heavy Tank

*Diese Fahrzeuge weisen noch Probleme mit dem Visier auf.


Flak / Artillerie

Bofors 40mm AAA
Zwillingssockel Twin 7.92mm AAA
Flak 30 20mm AAA
Flak 32 88mm AAA
3 Inch AAA
105mm Artillery

Bei den KI-Fahrzeugen wurde der Angriffsradius verkleinert, damit Spieler gegenüber der KI keine Nachteile durch die limitierten Zielfernrohre der Panzer haben.

Das Schadensmodell vieler Fahrzeuge wurde ebenfalls angepasst. In der momentanen Situation haben die schweren französischen und britischen Fahrzeuge einen grossen Vorteil gegenüber den deutschen. Bis wir schwerere deutsche Fahrzeuge einfügen können, müssen wir die Widerstandsfähigkeit der britischen und französischen Fahrzeuge reduzieren um eine Balance zu erreichen. Zwar sind die britischen und französischen Fahrzeuge im neuen Patch nach wie vor etwas stärker, dies wird aber dadurch ausgeglichen, dass die deutschen Flugzeuge Bodenziele effektiver angreiffen können.

Standard KI-Piloten-Fähigkeiten

Mit den Änderungen bei der Manövrierfähigkeit bei hohen Geschwindigkeiten sind bei der KI Probleme aufgetreten. Diese sind zu oft abgestürzt, v.a. während Landungen.

Deshalb wurde die Standard-KI-Fähigkeit etwas angehoben, damit die KI-Piloten ihr Flugzeug etwas besser kontrollieren können.

Die Fähigkeiten der „Rookie“, „Average“, „Veteran“ und „Ace“ Piloten wurden alle verändert. Missionen, welche diese Voreinstellungen verwenden, werden mit dem neuen Patch automatisch angepasst. Habt ihr das Fähigkeitsniveau eines Piloten von Hand eingestellt, verändert sich dieses durch den Patch nicht.

Missionsbauern empfehlen wir, die neuen KI-Fähigkeiten zu übernehmen um unnötige Verluste bei der KI zu verhindern.

Wir gehen davon aus, dass wir die KI in Zukunft genauer studieren und anpassen können.


Generell

* Suchscheinwerfer
Die Suchscheinwerfer funktionieren beim ersten Start einer Mission. Danach muss das Spiel neu gestartet werden, sonst funktionierten die Lichtkegel nicht. Der Fehler dahinter ist sehr hartnäckig und leider haben wir es bisher nicht geschafft das Problem zu lösen.

* Die Trennwand zwischen Cockpit und Motor wird nun nicht mehr so stark beleuchtet, wenn die Cockpitlichter an sind.
* Die Frontscheibe der Hurricane-Nachtjäger-Version wurde etwas lichtdurchlässiger gemacht, damit Nachtmissionen möglich sind. Bei Tag ist sie etwas zu transparent.
* ASI wurde korrigiert. Der 700Km/h-Typ wude implementiert, und die (spätere 900km/h Version entfernt.
* Kleine Korrekturen in den ATA-Anzeigen in verschiedenen Modellen.
* FL-Nummern und Werknummern hinzugefügt
* Die englische DeWilde-Munition wurde von einem explosivgeschoss in ein Beobachtungsgeschoss umgewandelt. Die Darstellung wird dadurch historisch korrekter. Die Munition enthält nun ammonium-nitrat, was beim Auftreffen zu einer Zündung und einem Blitz führt.

================================================== ==============
* Ein Teamspeak-Interface wurde hinzugefügt. Hoffentlich löst das einige Probleme mit dem Notifier. Ihr könnt es wie folgt gebrauchen:

1.- Kopiert "CLOD TeamSpeak Integration PluginXX.dll" in euren Teamspeak-Plugin-Ordner und aktiviert das Plugin in Teamspek
2.- Das Plugin kann nun in jedem Info-Fenster im Spiel hinzugefügt werden.

Mit dem Tool können nur die angezeigt werden, welche sprechen, oder auch alle Leute im Channel.

Bitte überprüft regelmässig, ob es für dieses Plugin ein Update gibt, da wir versuchen werden Updates herauszugeben, sobald eine neue Teamspeak-Version verfügbar ist.

* Ein neues Fenster-Werkzeug wurde hinzugefügt, damit man sich den Kurs anzeigen lassen kann, wenn man einen Panzer fährt.
* Das Fahrzeugauswahlfenster wird nun die Koordinaten des Fahrzeugs anzeigen. So weiss man, wo man spawnt.
================================================== ==============
* Bild deiner Geliebten
Dieser Mod ist standardmässig ausgeschaltet. Wenn Ihr in einschalten wollt, dann macht folgendes: Geht in den Ordner [my documents]\1C SoftClub\il-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover -MOD\DashPics
Dort werdet Ihr folgende Ordner finden:
* Selected – Der Mod wird das Bild mit dem Namen "1.tga" von diesem Ordner verwenden (Bitte lasst diesen Ordner nicht leer, es muss immer ein "1.tga"-File vorhanden sein)
* Templates – Hier findet Ihr Beispielbilder. Um sie zu verwenden, kopiert ihr sie in den „Selected“ Ordner und benennt sie in „1.tga“ um.
Dieser Ordner enthält auch eine Photoshop-Vorlage. Wenn du ein eigenes Bild erstellen möchtest, beachtet dass du den Alpha-Lyer auch bearbeiten must (in der Vorlage enthalten) und das Bild im .tga Format gespeichert werden muss.
================================================== ==============
* Historisch verfügbare Munition fürs 20mm MG FF and MG FF/M hinzugefügt:
MG FF:
-Sprenggranate L'spur m.Zerl (134g)
-Panzergranate L'spur (134g)
-Panzergranate (134g AP)

MG FF/M:
-Panzergranate (115g AP)
-Panzerbrandgranate Phosphor o.Zerl
-Panzersprenggranate L'spur m.Zerl (115g )
-Brandsprenggranate L'spur m.Zerl (115g)
-Brandgranate L'spur o.Zerl (115g)
-M-Geschoss m.Zerl (92g)

Bitte beachtet dass:
1. Der Namenswechsel von "Panzerbrandgranate" zu "Panzergranate" ist nur ein Namenswechsel. In der letzten Offiziellen Version war die Panzerbrandgranate eigentlich schon nur eine Panzergranate
2.wir die "Panzerbrandgranate (Elektron)" entfernt und durch die Panzersprenggranate ersetzt haben. Es gibt keinen Grund die Phosphor und Elektron –Varianten gleichzeitig drin zu haben (Die Game-Engine kann die das Elektronthermit der Elektron-Granaten nicht korrekt darstellen)
================================================== ==============

Karten

* Winter Karte
* Herbst Karte
* Sommerkarte mit alternativen Texturen
* Neue Texturen für weit entfernte Landschaften.
* Detail-Level bei weit entfernten Gebäuden geändert.
* Gelbes Licht aus Gebäuden in der Nacht entfernt.
* Gebäudebeleuchtungen in der Nacht entfernt.
* Farbe der Bäume geändert
* Bombenkrater-Texturen geändert
* Bombenkrater können nun auch im Missionseditor verwendet werden
* Vertikales Gras neu texturiert
* Pisten und Taxiways neu texturiert.

Neue Missionen

* Nachtkampf über London – Mission. Blenheim und Hurricane (Nachtjägerversionen) greiffen Bomber an.
* Abenpatroulie-Mission über Boulogne. Verteidigung gegen mehrere RAF-Bomber. Bf-110 Luftstart und Bf-109 Start am Boden. Suchscheinwerfer vorhanden.

Skins

* Historische Skins für alle Bf-109-Varianten. Weitere Skins für die späteren Zeitpunkte der Luftschlacht um England können bald separat heruntergeladen werden.

BF 110:

* NJG1 zum Zerstörer-Wahlmenü hinzugefügt (1 Skin pro Staffel). Warnung: Die Verwendung des Hak enkreuz-Mods wird einen Fehler bei den Balkenkreuzen verursachen (Hake nkreuze anstelle von Balkenkreuzen)

Any chance of publishing performance graphs? (the usual speed/climb vs altitude)

Actually that would be a splendid idea. Would you TF guys be able to show the tests you're basing the a/c performance on and how the in-game performance relates to it? That would awesome if we could see how close the sim is to reality and if we're getting there slowly :) Or is it too much hassle?

Skins

BF 110:

* Added NJG 1 to the Zerstoerer/Destroyer selection menu with a skin for each Staffel
Warning: the installation of the hakenkreuz mod will cause a failure with the balkenkreuz (swastika instead of crosses)


Does this involve just the 110? Or all Luftwaffe aircraft..

This involves only the Bf 110 nightfighter, because they use the ingame "white-only" balkenkreuz, which is by the hakenkreuz-mod rewritten to a swastika.

It's not that "it's too much hassle", there are a few other things we need to get sorted first...like releasing the patch.

Currently the FM has been exhaustively tested, matched against chart A, B, C and D, and F, and G...etc, etc. Posting a Graph, chart, list, detail will only start one of those "but what about this graph?", "no I have this graph", "but my graph is better than yours!" deteriorating threads.

In the PC Pilot issue, this question was raised by the Editor and this is the response we gave.

PC Pilot:

"When it comes to making improvements to aircraft handling and performance, what is your main source of information for verification?"

Team Fusion:

"We don't have any single main source. Our members involved in the Flight Model area have been interested in the subject of WWII aircraft performance for decades, and have amassed a huge library of original data and other resources on the performance, maintenance and construction of the relevant aircraft. These have been sourced from museums and official records depositories in the United States, England, Canada, Australia, Italy and Germany, as well as having been obtained
through purchase over the internet. We have members living in all of the above countries. We refer to these sources constantly when making decisions about every aspect of the game."


Personally I don't expect every reference and source that has been worked on to be posted as it would be time better spent on Patch v5.00, but it will probably be best if we ask you to try Patch v4.00 and then come back and tell us that the Blue or Red aircraft that you fly is 'Porked' or 'Uber'. Time will of course tell, but at-least let us get the patch out before you start worrying about the graphs ;)

Please :IAG:

Salute

As Mysticpuma has said, to post all the details of all the aircraft and how we arrived at decisions regarding aircraft performance would require more pages of explanations, graphs and references than we have time for. It really is a question of how much time we are willing to spend to do this versus actually working on the Mod.

These issues have been discussed at length, and will continue to be discussed as long as people have an interest in these aircraft.

We are happy to see detailed criticisms of the aircraft modelling, (with appropriate references) posted on the public boards, and we will certainly consider those, and yes, we are open to implementing changes if the facts warrant it. This mod is continually evolving, we make changes when we feel it is appropriate, these are always based on the actual data available.

We don't pretend to have ALL the information on every aircraft, we are continually adding to the file we have accumulated. So if you have some new and relevant piece of data, by all means, please provide it.

But we would ask that first you go ahead and fly the virtual aircraft, then fly the aircraft they are matched up against.

By the way, if anyone has detailed information on the construction of bomber aircraft we are very interested in that.

This would be such details as the millimeter thickness of the aluminum skin which is used in the various areas, dimensions of main and secondary spars, rib dimensions, etc. etc.

There is a great deal of information of this type on the fighter aircraft, but unfortunately less on the bombers.

Thanks for your patience. :salute:

Don't get me wrong, I was not criticising in advance :) I was merely curious as I find it an interesting topic on how close CloD FMs are to RL data etc. If that takes too much time to show, I understand, no worries.

Any chance of publishing performance graphs? (the usual speed/climb vs altitude)

p.s. and just for the record, I am very sceptical about the DB 601N ever operating on 1.42ata. That may have been the design goal with an output of 1400 PS max, but I doubt they ever cleared it for anything else than 1.35ata.

Therfore, I demand, on the verge of hysterics the utter and immidiate nerfing of the E-4/N to 1.35ata performance levels. Which are completely unkknown and at best could be calculated from known tests of Bf 109E. Which are highly debated also. :D :D

Wow, that's a a first.

For the bombers. In case you missed it, the Blennies and Br20s were given German autopilot mode 1 (course) and mode 2 (22) to stand in for a level stabilizer. So here is something to help you get started.

Blennie and Br20 AP Guide:

Key bindings needed: course autopilot next mode; course autopilot adjust course left and adjust course right; directional gyro increase and decrease; [(Br20) start motor compressor; stop motor compressor]

Simple mode: After takeoff, trim your plane on desired course for your climb. Hit autopilot next mode, you will get a read out that says mode: course. Your plane will start to turn, just hit your adjust course left/right keys until the plane is flying on the course you want. The AP default course is N so the farther away from N that you are the more turning that will initially be needed. This is mode 1 (course) you can climb, dive, fly level using elevator trim as it only controls the rudder. Br20; for a more precise AP, start motor compressor to spool up the directional gyro (will shake the plane); known bug.

For mode 22 (level flight, level bombing) hit the autopilot next key and it will say mode 22 (). Now the autopilot will control rudder, elevator, and ailerons. The plane will most likely dive for a bit to help it level out so pick an altitude at least 300-500 meters above what altitude you want. The Blennie's nose will bounce up and down (known bug)

For both of these modes just use your course autopilot left/right keys to turn the plane. You can also use the directional gyro keys for smaller movements.

Br20: Without the motor compressor on, the plane will drift more than other planes so it will need constant adustment.

For total correct navigation: Br20: During startup turn on the motor compressor. Both: Turn the dirctional gyro to match the magnetic compass (You will have to continually match the gyro to the compass during flight)

Take off and pick your course, match gyro to magnetic compass, then hit autopilot next mode, then repeat the above steps.

For more info, check out the ju-88 flight manual (Autopilot) on wiki, it will all work the same except for not having a gauge for the autopilot course.

Thats how far you can see, and 5 its the most you can set on the game. Its like option "5" gives X ammount of drawn distance

Thank you Team Fusion for the excellent work ... looking forward to patch 5.xx.

I just fiddling around with the available ammunition for German 20mm MG FF and MG FF/M.

What are the new / corrected values "Form Factor" "Velocity" "Dispersion" etc. ? Please allow a short "view" into the weapons.ini.

Edit 03/12/2015: It is not my intention to open the floor for another discussion about "Various gun dispersion data" (http://theairtacticalassaultgroup.com/forum/showthread.php?t=9642) or "Ammo modelling in CloD" (http://theairtacticalassaultgroup.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11211). I am only curious about how things work and why they are working in such or such way ...
