No, the workshop won't be in this update, it would require even more time to make the workshop integration working, so I felt that correcting the issues and complete the missing elements was much more important.
I want to release it as soon it is possible, but at this point I feel I can say any real date all depends how much time I will need to complete all the tasks I have left.
this is taking more time that I wanted, but I'm trying to avoid cutting any corners to have all elements fully fleshed out.
But my limit is to have the update ready before the end of the year, at that point I might have to save some minor elements for other update
I'm thinking in adding a configurable attack rate in the editor to avoid the AI mobbing the player like it happen in some missions.
I've begun adding all the weapons bay that were missing. The BOP and F-22 are complete, and now moving to the next families.
A revision in all challenges.
A revision in all audio
A revision in all aircraft (playable and bombers)
gameplay and UI bugs
this includes small details like a new GAU-8 sound and more
No ETA at the moment, but I think the update will worth it just going by the huge list of bug fixes.
Yes it is a lens flare, I'm still making some tests to add more variety.
A badly aligned Lens flare. It has been corrected since that screenshot.
Sure! I think some can be already be added in this update.
Yes in some regards the next update will be a major one, one of the new aditions is to give more control in adjusting the environment for each individual missions, like unique weather conditions, without having to make a new map just for that.
The campaign missions and some challenges will also reflect some of these updates, there will be also tweaked loadouts thanks to SpootKnight and
I also miss the anime plane girls, they stopped appearing because it became hard to find time for them. But I wasn't the one o did them, it was the artist o made the ground textures.
But there is still a Su-47 anime girl that was never revealed. I'll post it in the report for the upcoming update.
Not ready yet but it should be soon
I can confirm F-5E will be in the next update, OF-20 and X-29, both are possible but unlikely
@Gest, more ground objects and new weapons.
As for the Steam workshop it not fully implemented yet, so it won't be mentioned in this update
@Koeben I'm expecting it to release it near the end of this month
Sorry for the late reply, yes it will be added a new pack of ground objects in the next update.
About the urban areas for the nations in Hollow Thunder, yes those nations have cities, they are still on planning but they will have unique layouts
@Guest Sep 25 2015 , if you mean the audio volume of the VA, then yes, the revision was completed yesterday, but all the audio was tweaked for the next update.
as for the last mission, that is something I´ll have a look.
@Nergal01, standoff will be available in the next update, and the first nuke will actually be the Falcon, (but I appreciate that you have reminded me about the MPBM)
@SCN-3_NULL, yes the Mig-31 has been corrected.
yes, and that aircraft will be equipped as special weapon with small nuclear weapons.
but besides that, the campaign will have some tweaks and more challenges will be added.
Yes it is true. The current MiG-31 model is missing the gun. I only noticed when it was too late for the update.
There are several other details that are missing in the model, I wasn't sure you the movable pylons would move.
But these issues will be fixed before adding the other main variants.
@Guest, I´ll have a look to trace the issue
Both are already in progress, at least one of them will be available in the next updates.
yes I've noticed, I have to see if there is something that needs to be configured or a way to clean the upload cash, because this build was uploaded without the config file.
regarding to issues the MiG-31 also as an incorrect UV applied in the nozzles, I've fixed both I´ll update a quick fix ASAP
Hmm for this update I'm still testing how the "full arcade" mode affects the game.
There was no change in the voice files in this build, but since this will take some extra time I might as well give a quick look in the voice files and fix the worst cases.
As for the second question, yes, the campaign will be updated as new scene objects become available.
Nice find, the pilot was added for the J-35 family.
there were a couple of additions and fixes, but the main additions in this update are the MiG-31 and "Full Arcade" gameplay style
@Guest it will be released on both, but the incubator will have the usual extra
@Nergal01 yes is on track, the only thing that can delay it now is if is found a bug in this final tests
It will be on September 2.
Some days ago I´ce posted a tweet about it with a reveal
@Nergal01 sorry I'll answer your PM.
But about the campaign, what I was trying to say is that RB is the next planned campaign, but it will take a while because there other elements to add/fix in the next updates
Yes, but first it will be added some features like steam workshop integration and new units including playable aircraft that will be used later in the RB campaign
