Hello virtual pilots,

Today I have the honor to write a Dev Diary. My name is Evgeny Isaev, I'm the lead map maker. I want to tell you a bit about our work and share some good news.

The Stalingrad map was the first in our project. Time has passed and now, thanks to our lead programmer Sergey Vorsin, we have new technologies, instruments and methods that allow us to reach a new level of quality. In addition, the recent changes in the engine for almost four times visibility distance increase caused visible artifacts on maps that were most apparent on the Stalingrad map. So it was the time to re-visit and improve our first map. This wasn't planned initially, but we ought to find the time for this task.

Hello everybody,

Today we'll tell you about the creation of the new historical scenario campaign for Battle of Kuban. Unlike previously released 10 Days of Autumn and Blazing Steppe historical campaigns that you can get in our store, this one will be included in the Battle of Kuban and will be available once BoK releases.

After finishing the work on the Kuban map this Summer, we faced a hard decision of choosing a scenario for the next historical campaign. Battle of Kuban includes many very interesting planes and an interesting and captivating story could be told about almost each one of them. However, taking into account the development plan, two already released campaigns focused on the fighter aircraft (Bf 109 and Yak-1) and numerous suggestions on the forums we decided to choose the series title aircraft for the next story - IL-2.

IGN

“One thing’s for sure, any aircraft that does find its way into this sim is going to be rivet-perfect visually and bally persuasive in the flight modelling department”
PCGamer

“Although IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad is simple enough to play, it also features a lot of depth and technical detail. This is much more a deep simulation than the free-to-play flight games that are very popular right now”
