Dear pilots!

Work on the version particularly designed for Steam is still in progress, so we decided not to waste time and bring the new version to you as soon as possible. The central part of the update is, of course, the new plane. You talked a lot about it, you asked for it, then you started pre-ordering it, and finally we release this aircraft - F.E.2b.

The early British bomber, fighter and a recon biplane. No synchronizer installed, so the gunner was placed in front of the pilot. Pusher scheme provides brilliant field of view in the front hemisphere, and mobile machinegun turret allows to cover both front and back aiming above the wing.

The aircraft is easily controlled, it's sensitive on the stick, so the flight is a real pleasure. It's only drawback is low speed, which deprived the plane form its potential popularity during WWI. Anyway we enjoyed making it and we hope this model will become a wonderful addition to your collection of early aircraft widely used in multiplayer events and in career mode.

Also releasing this new version we present you the first gift from the IL-2: BOS project. We managed to optimize the loading procedures for in-game objects and modules and applied it to ROF. Thus, loading from the start and to the main menu screen has been decreased by more than 10 times. We hope that it's just the first step in discovering and applying new knowledge and technologies into both projects , and a whole lot of new bright ideas are awaiting.

We wish you the best of luck mastering this new aircraft, we also are very grateful to everyone who pre-ordered F.E.2b and made it possible to give this plane a life in Rise of Flight and on players' screens.

v.1.031 update content is as follows:

GENERAL
• Optimized loading procedures for the game and the mission editor

PLANES
• Added F.E.2b

SHIPS
• Fixed the issue that prevented ships from moving

CAREER
• Fixed crashes in the Brandenburg W12 carier

SKINS
• Added: 22 skins for F.E.2b and Vol.15 pack with 396 historical and 233 fictional skins

STATS
• Fixed the stats issue that caused the streaks not to reset after death
• Minor point scoring issues fixed

Favorite paragraph from the news (my highlights):

They most probably forgot to mention that the Server will be down, normally until 14h00 GMT!
So just wait patiently. ;)

I just noticed that Server Maintenance was annouced in another thread! So 14h00 UCT/GMT is when it should be available.

I was a bit too hasty indeed, gentlemen. The update is still being eployed to the servers, and they're currently offline as it was said here: http://riseofflight....pic.php?t=38667" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">viewtopic.php?t=38667
100 minutes more - and you'll be able to fly

STATS
• Fixed the stats issue that caused the streaks not to reset after death
• Minor point scoring issues fixed…

I don't want to be negative but I should ask. The streak reset on each map change bug is still there or is it intended feature?

Thanks for new patch anyway.

Salute.

Offcourse :)
By default - it's equiped with it's acrobatic insane turret :x :lol:
As weapon mod - scarfring twin lewis turret. Weaponmod turret does not requires switching between gun positions, have greater firepower, but it have smaller field of fire to the backward.

As field mods - fuel gauge, clock and lamp for cosiness during night flights :)

I like Zak. The guy is clearly excited to release 1.031 to us and probably gets himself a slap on the wrist from time to time because of his enthusiasm. :)

Take it easy everyone. The update will come.
