      Hello gents',
      Please find linked below the included pic. a zipped file that includes some tweaks I have been working on recently, for a few days, and that attempt to improve the AI behavior in ROF. I've attempted to bring more AI "surprises" and varied behavior into the sim. - based on what we take for granted with the wonderful AI in First Eagles 2 (also WOFF). No spectacular overhauls have been possible, but I hope there are at least some improvements with this little package. Please see the included "Read Me" file for more info. regarding the AI and installation directions, etc. And thank you Criquet/Gavagai for the initial AI tweaks of many years ago. My tweaks have been tested only in the United Ed. of ROF (which is the last, consolidated ver.) and are not recommended for earlier versions of the sim.
      EDIT: Ver. 1.1 of this package - added Feb. 18, 2021 - includes further improvements to top speeds at various alts. for the Alb. D.Va, as well as more historical climb speeds per aircraft type, in the relevant sections of the individual aircraft files.
      Happy flying,
      Von S

      Dear friends,

      Today our team presents you the first IL-2 Great Battles update in 2021, 4.506. The main feature of this update is the Fw 190 A-6 fighter/bomber developed for the Battle of Normandy. The Normandy map is in development, but you can already fly the new aircraft in Rheineland Career mode, provided you have both Battle of Normandy and Bodenplatte. You can also encounter the new A-6 as an enemy in the recent Wind of Fury campaign and anyone can set it up as an AI in quick missions.  

       
      In addition to the new arrival, there is a significant number of other changes and improvements. The updated graphical effects are included (the ones that are ready), Chiawei =Oyster_KAI= Liang continued his work on the 4K texturing of many planes cockpits and Martin =ICDP= Catney created 4K external textures for Bf 109 E-7 and corrected a number of other aircraft. There are two AI corrections, but they are significant. Among other fixes are ones for aircraft systems, player controllable tanks, including an important one for the gun aiming, and many improvements for historical campaigns.
       



       
      We continue our work as always and this Spring you'll see new planes and improvements for the game world.

      Main features
      1. German fighter/bomber Fw 190 A-6 is now available to all Battle of Normandy owners;
      2. Fw 190 A-6 added to Rheinland Career mode (to the 1st and 2nd chapters to joinable squadrons III./JG 11, I./JG 26 and II./JG 26 and to all chapters to AI squadrons III./KG 51 and NSGr. 20);
      3. Bf 109 E-7 got 4K quality external textures;
      4. There are new truck variations (which look exactly like the regular ones) that are loaded with ammo and explode when attacked in a spectacular way;

      Aircraft improvements
      5. AI pilots of fast fighters engage slow-flying targets much better;
      6. AI pilots that are alone or from different groups carry out a landing approach much better - now all the AI pilots form the landing queue, not only the ones that belong to the same group;
      7. MC.202 propeller rotation and twist were corrected;
      8. Yak-9 and Yak-9T elevator is affected at high speeds similar to other Yak fighters;
      9. On all aircraft with set mixture control positions the current position is shown in the technochat instead of the mixture percentage;
      10. UBT MG gunsight scale on IL-2 mod. 1943 has been recentered;
      11. A damaged Fokker D.VII won't visibly disappear at long distances;
      12. Gunsight adjustment (target size and range) using buttons happens faster and their default values are set for a close dogfight against a typical enemy fighter;
      13. German gyro gunsight Ez.42 damping corrected, higher frequency oscillations of the aircraft affect the calculated lead less;
      14. AI pilots fire all 12 Hurricane MGs when installed instead of only 8;
      15. Water vapor effect added to the damaged or overheated Hurricane radiator;
      16. Oil and water drops won't visibly appear on the inside surface of the cockpit canopy on many aircraft;
      17. A number of typos that appeared on Soviet planes after increasing the cockpits to 4K quality were corrected;
      18. Bf 109 E-7 cockpit: a typo corrected, detail of certain controls improved, dimmer looks more historically accurate;
      19. Bf 109 F-2 and F-4 wheels corrected;
      20. BG-25 detail increased (Bf 109 G6/G6 Late/G14/K4);
      21. Rocket control panel detail improved on Bf 109 G6 Late and G14;
      22. Fw 190 A-3/A-5/A-8 ammo counters panel detail improved;
      23. Hs 129 B2 cockpit: weathering and scratches on leather objects, weathering of the gunsight parts outside the cockpit, more detailed dimmer switch, revised coloring and updated lettering of gauges and parts to make them more historically correct, alpha layer adjustments;
      24. MiG-3: enhanced textures of braided cables, redrawn placards, alpha layer adjustments;
      25. P-39L: control stick weathering, more detailed radio equipment (MN-52H, BC-345, BC-451) and recognition light switch box, more accurate white aluminum panels and detailed text, enhanced throttle quadrant and fuel prime pump handle, improved gauges and parts lettering, alpha layer adjustments;
      26. P-40E: more detailed radio equipment (BC-366, BC-451A, BC-450A), throttle quadrant and fuel prime pump handle, historically correct texture for exposed wiring (black wires and white braided cables), alpha layer adjustments;
      27. P-47D22/D28: more detailed BC-765 switch box and fuel prime pump handle, upgraded textures of the white screws on the trim indicators box and flap control handle slide rail, alpha layer adjustments;
      28. Fw 190 A-3 and A-5 default pilot positions and some skins of these aircraft were corrected;
      29. Radio and lighting switches are now animated in Fw 190 A-3 and A-5 cockpits;

      Player controllable tank improvements
      30. An option added that amplifies the gun aiming response to the mouse movement. If you play without a visual mouse aim indicator or aim the gun using buttons, it is recommended to leave it at the default setting (0);
      31. Player controllable tanks now correctly collide in multiplayer;
      32. A wrong technochat message about turning on and off the powered turret traverse won't appear while moving across rough terrain at high speed;
      33. SU-122 and SU-152 crews throw out all the accumulated spent ammo casings when the hatches are opened;
      34. The initial position of the shot off Ferdinand gun mantlet corresponds to the mantlet type installed;
      35. 72-K 25mm round ballistics were corrected;
      36. HE rounds of 72-K, 61-K, Flak 36, Flak 38, Flakvierling 38, Sh-37, NS-37, BK-3.7, M4 and Vickers Class S now have self-destruct fuzes (HE rounds without such fuzes were not used on these guns);
      37. Pz.Kpfw.III Ausf.M suspension animation corrected;

      Visual effects improvements
      38. New bomb ground and water impact (impact, not explosion) effects;
      39. 50-100 kg bombs explosion effects have a new style (it is planned to update all the explosions in a similar way);
      40. Additional explosion effects added for rounds containing more than 450 g and less than 1500 g explosives;
      41. Improved gunfire effects for the detailed ground vehicles;
      42. APHE explosion effects corrected accordingly to the number of explosives they contain;
      43. Ground vehicles leave better-looking tracks;

      Other improvements
      44. The hook on port cranes is raised higher so it won't prevent larger ships to dock underneath;
      45. The visual model of a destroyed 52-K AAA gun was corrected (it contained elements of an intact gun);
      46. Blazing Steppe, Fortress on the Volga, Ice Ring historical campaigns: all fire effects updated, ammo trucks added, many other improvements and fixes;
      47. During the Wind of Fury historical campaign you can encounter С-47 and Fw 190 A-6 while Bf 109 G-6 fighters were replaced by Bf 109 G-6 Late;
      48. Fortress on the Volga historical campaign: fuel and ambulance trucks added to the transport columns, the overall number and size of the columns increased.

      Dear friends,
       
      There will be a lot of Battle of Normandy news in 2021. Relatively soon we'll be able to show you the first landscape shots, while today we have some of the ground vehicles that are already done. Please note that the quality level for the new trucks, armored cars and other objects for Normandy has increased. Of course, the new objects will benefit from all the previously developed physics and AI improvements.
       
      Dodge WC-54 - while working on the Battle of Normandy we have decided to add the ambulance vehicle for the US Army that was missing in 'Bodenplatte'. This 3-ton all-wheel-drive vehicle was designed specifically for the US Army medical service.

       
      Austin K2/Y - you can tell the country of origin of this 3-ton military ambulance vehicle after a first glance. Of course, it is British.

       
      Ordnance QF 17-pounder - the famous British gun which was very effective in the anti-tank role in spite of its relatively small caliber. This gun, either in an AT gun form or installed on a tank gave good chances against German panzer beasts.

       
      Sd.Kfz.222 - this German all-wheel-drive 5-ton armored car with 3 men crew had a powerful weapon for its class, 20mm automatic gun KwK-20, and sloped armor.

       
      AMES Type 15 was a British made radar.

       
      SCR-584 was a US radar. Also on this screenshot are the British AA searchlight and its accompanying electric generator.
