Dear Pilots,
1C Game Studios, in partnership with Team Fusion Simulations, is proud to announce the release of a newly updated and improved BLITZ edition of the IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover!
As announced previously, 1CGS has partnered with Team Fusion Simulations to codify and improve their previous mod work and make it an official part of Dover. The result of that effort is now here!
All current owners of Cliffs of Dover Classic will receive BLITZ for FREE in their Steam Library starting today. You just need to install to play. It may already be there waiting for you.
If you don't already own Cliffs of Dover you can purchase from the Steam store.
To celebrate the launch, from December 14th until January 4th BLITZ will be on sale for 25% OFF. The regular price after the special will be $24.99.
Buy from STEAM STORE = http://store.steampowered.com/app/754530
Buy from Official Web Store = https://il2sturmovik.com/store/cliffs-of-dover/

i figured out how to run a dedicated COD Blitz server on my server machine with my same Steam account! I'll work on the scripting/automation next and we can put up some missions next week or over the holiday week!

There should be an RAF662.org WWII CLOD Blitz server running now. ;-) It has a simple home map (East Church) Red UK only for free flight. I have the rudimentary scripting running for mission rotations at the moment. Like it to be better, but its working. Once we get some more MP missions going we can host our own. Liking blitz, but feeling like i'm staring up that long hill of mission building again ;-o.

I dunno how fair this is...that Su-26 with just two BB guns would pretty much destroy anything in one-on-one combat.

Update 4.53

- Netcode improvements
- Addition of hi resolution cockpits for all aircraft
- Added drag for Hurricane and Bf-110 bombracks
- Correct gunsights for British types
- Changes to AI gunner effectiveness (less effective)
- Fix to allow Vehicles to be driveable
- Fix to reduce the range at which active AI gunners are being drawn by the game engine... fps saving
- Some small changes to the Sounds

Please note for those wanting to host servers:

The server will have a tendency to park cores... which will increase lag.

Changing the power options to "high performance", will improve performance considerably. Please check your server settings.

2nd note: Our Chief Coder is busy with Real Life concerns and does not have the time at the moment to address a few bugs... these will be fixed in a final version... but we wanted to get this out for the players.

- The driveable vehicles are now listed in the Quick Mission aircraft selection screen.

- There is some smoke in the cockpit when firing nose mount guns

- The AI gunners have been adjusted to suit Single Player preferences... we will be releasing an optional version later which will be tuned to Multiplayer preferences.
