The latest IL-2 developer diary is out and this week the team is talking about some third party efforts to integrate a dynamic online war system into the IL-2 multiplayer. This is less of an update about a feature coming to IL-2 and more of a heads up on what kind of cool scenarios you can build thanks to the developers opening parts of the experience up and a dedicated group (DED in this case) can do with their own software and model on the back end.
Most of the details aren’t really in my area of expertise so I will forgo a detailed commentary on the highlights. If this kind of thing interests you from a server/code perspective then definitely check it out.
I should also say that while the tech behind this may be a bit over top of some of us, the outcomes are not and more sophisticated online scenarios are going to be a real boon for IL-2 multiplayer as they continue to evolve.
