Sorry for making you wait for an update. Here it is!
Weíve been working very hard on multiple aspects of the game. We are pushing with all our might to have the beta version of the upcoming patch readyÖ Well, sooner than you might think! If nothing goes wrong, it might even be out this very Friday.
As stated earlier, itíll contain a beta version of the completely new sound (fewer individual engine models, sparse ambience), revamped color processing algorithms, transparent shorelines, and numerous fixes and improvements. Itíll also contain the Bf-109E-4 and E-4/B and at least one new mid-size online map.
Following that, we have other things in the works. We are finally ready to start knocking out SDKs, with the map making SDK being the first one youíll see Ė quite soon, too! Weíll release more details on that, and on the plane-making SDK, after the upcoming beta patch is fully tested and goes live.
We also have a rather cool new major feature almost ready. Itís not going to make this patch. In order to keep the competitors squirming, we wonít say what it is until weíre ready to release it.
With that, hereís a short video showcasing the new WIP sound. Itís recorded on a deprecated version of the patch, after which weíve toned down the ocean colors and filled in the sounds. The biggest omission is the turbine whine of the Daimler-Benz. Donít worry, youíll hear it in the actual patch.
(I didnít want to make an update without the video, and by the time I finally captured and spliced it together, the game version advanced way ahead. And by the time I make a new video of the sound as it is today, youíll all be playing it yourselves!)
