UP3 RC4 Patch Pack 301
« on: February 12, 2018, 08:11:05 AM »

Hey there you Ultrapack Rebels 8)

It's time for the next step in the UP3 Patch Pack Series.
Patch Pack series 100 fixed lots of bugs and brought up a couple of new cool - yet tiny - features.
Patch Pack series 200 fixed further bugs and brought to us the implementation of the new IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 4.13.4 AI code.
Patch Pack series 300 now fixes further bugs again, and it brings us the new "Enhanced Weapon Release Control" mod by SAS~Skylla.

For the sake of online compatibility, it's mandatory to update to 300 series Patch Pack if you play on a server with 300 series Patch Pack installed.
Otherwise you might not see what others see and vice versa.

Please find the current 300 series UP3 RC4 Patch Pack release here:

Mirror (OneDrive):UP3 Patch Pack 301
Mirror (Mega):UP3 Patch Pack 301

Virustotal Report here (in case you face a false positive, use this as reference).

Short installation instruction:
  • Download the file
  • Run the installer
  • At the end, JSGME will open up. Disable old Patch Pack(s) and enable the new one.

Long instructions etc. follow in the posts below.

Cheers!

(*) Me-262V3 flight model:
    Like in real life, you have to tap the brakes in order to get the 262V3 off the ground.
    Let the plane accelerate to 180km/h, tap the brakes until the tail comes up and you will soon get airborne automatically.
    Remember to move the throttle gently below 6000rpm.
    VERY GENTLY!
    This plane is equipped with very early stages of the Jumo 004 jet engines which are still under development.
    The specified spool up time from idle to full throttle is ==>> 40 Seconds <<==
    This means that e.g. when using keyboard for throttle, you're allowed to increase throttle by one step (=5%) every 2 seconds only !!
    You might be lucky and manage to spool up within half of that time (20 seconds) but we cannot guarantee that the engines will survive it.
    If you spool up any faster, your engines will go up in flames, mark these words!
    The same applies when you throttle back: GENTLY!
    You can do it quicker than throttling up, actually about twice as fast, but you still have to do it GENTLY once you fall below 6000rpm.
    That much for the bad news about the engines, the good news is that above 6000rpm you can move the throttle as quick as you like.
    Watch your RPMs!
   
    Note: * Trim setting for ground start is "full up".
            It will be applied automatically on ground start, however if you have a joystick axis attached for elevator trim,
            remember to trim up all the way when you start on ground, otherwise you risk to nose over when you tap the brakes.
          * Don't let the plane accelerate beyond 200 km/h without lifting the tail.
            Otherwise eventually the wings might lift the plane into the air (especially with low fuel load),
            but you have no elevator authority yet since they're still wing alee: -> Crash.
          * Don't tap the brakes too soon when you try to lift the tail.
            If you do so below ~160km/h, the tail will come up, but since you don't have sufficient elevator authority yet, your plane will nose over.
   
    ATTENTION: If you have installed PA_Jeronimo's Engine Cowling Mod, please deactivate the Me-262V-3 folder inside of that mod, otherwise
               Your engine will get damage once started on ground, see deactivation details below.

Additionally implemented Debugging Switches:
You can adjust log.lst debugging by setting the following values in the conf.ini [Mods] section:

LogMilliseconds=<0/1>      Milliseconds in time output in log.lst, default=0, 0=disable, 1=enable
LogTicks=<0/1>             "Tick Delta" output in log.lst, default=0, 0=disable, 1=enable, this is the time difference between two log lines in game's internal "Ticks"

********************

Installation:
1.) Run JSGME.exe from your UP3 RC4 game folder and disable any of the following previously installed mods(packs), if applicable:
    * Any old Hotfix Pack (* see below)
    * Any old Patch Pack (e.g. "#UP#_Patch_Pack_216")
    * UP3 RC4 without obfuscation ("#UP#_Unobfuscated_MDS_for_UP3"), because this is integrated in this patch pack already
2.) Check your enabled JSGME Mods, now there should only be:
    * #UP#_Enable_UP.3.0
    * Additional JSGME Mods not related to Fixes, Patches, unobfuscated UP etc.
3.) Extract this Patch Pack to your UP3 RC4 game folder
4.) Run jsgme.exe and activate this mod ("#UP#_Patch_Pack_301")

Patch Pack Enhancements
« Reply #2 on: February 12, 2018, 08:11:53 AM »

UP3 RC4 Patch Pack enhancements are listed here with no claim to completeness.
Newest enhancements come first, older ones down the list.


The "Enhanced Weapons Release Control" mod enables you to select the amount of rockets/bombs to launch/drop for each trigger key press, and the gap between two subsequent launches/drops in case of salvo fire.
For instance, here you can see how a full salvo of all available bombs gets selected:


Here the shortest delay is chosen, max. delay would be 2 seconds:


This is the result, using a single bomb trigger key press:


Here are the required key assignments to utilize the "EWRC" mod features:


"Automatic dock mode" on TB-3 and I-16 SPB planes.
Instead of continuously pressing the "attach/detach" key, for attaching the key will now enable a "dock mode".
You will see something like in the following images.
Here the plane is off docking limits, which means that it might be too far from the mother plane (>20x docking distance), too fast, too slow or the course might not match sufficiently:


As soon as you get within <=20x docking distance and speed and course are within limits, the dock mode will show your current distance, visually and audibly ("park distance control" beep style):


The closer you get, the less dots are filled:


When no filled dot is left, docking will happen, i.e. a single filled dot is closest distance before docking event:


After having docked, the automatic mode automatically gets disabled:


The require key assignment is the "Attach/Detach Aircraft" key:


Ordnance View "Enhanced", the way it should always have been, going beyond what TD has to offer...

In order to use the new Ordnance View (and the backported separate Stationary Camera View) modes, please make sure to assign keys to the new functions accordingly:


Camera Mod is now part of the Patch Pack


"Semi Self Illumination" when an aircraft is on fire...


We have 4 types of German "AB" bomb containers in IL-2, namely the AB-23, AB-250, AB-500 and AB-1000.
The submunition of these bomb containers is:
  • AB-23: 23 x SD 2 "Butterfly" bomblets, released within 0.3 seconds.
  • AB-250: 144 x SD 2 "Butterfly" bomblets, released within 2 seconds.
  • AB-500: 74 x SD 4 HL Hollow Charge bomblets, released within 1 second.
  • AB-1000: 372 x B2.2EZ Incendiary bomblets, released in 5 charges within 5 seconds.

When you drop "AB" bomb containers, both the bomb fuze and the bomb delay settings are very important.

The "bomb fuze" setting determines the time from dropping the bomb until the submunition will be released.
There's a minimum time for the "bomb fuze" setting depending on the AB bomb type, if you select a lower "bomb fuze" time, the minimum time will apply instead.
Minimum "bomb fuze" times are:
  • AB-23: 0.75s
  • AB-250: 1s
  • AB-500: 1s
  • AB-1000: 1.5s

The "bomb delay" setting determines the time from bomblet impact to detonation.
Due to constructive limitations, the SD 4 HL bomblets always use a zero delay meaning that they will always explode right on impact.

The bomblets look like this:

SD 2:
 

SD 4 HL:


B2.2EZ


Because of the "butterfly" design, the drag on SD 2 bomblets is very high, therefore they will have a very steep trajectory once the butterfly mechanism has unfolded (happens within 0.5 seconds after release).
The best tactics to use this bomb is to either do a dive attack, or drop it close to the ground, immediately before passing above the target area.
Use bomb delay setting to avoid being damaged by fragments.
This bomblet type is very effective against non-armored vehicels, planes, buildings, non-armored artillery and infantry. It's reasonably effective against tanks if dropped in concentrated manner right above them.

The SD 4 HL has pretty much a normal bomb shape.
Since on release from the container the bombs fall "chaotically" off the container, the trajectory in the beginning is slightly more steep and the bombs decellerate quite much initially, but they recover to a normal trajectory within ~1 second.
The best tactics is to drop this bomb like normal ones, just take into account that they will fall slightly short compared to a normal "SC" bomb type.
This bomblet type is particularly effective against tanks and small vessels but you need to score direct hits.
It's reasonably effective against anything non-armored too, since this bomb also has a fragmentation component.

The B2.2EZ shape is like an "extended" bomb.
Since on release from the container the bombs fall "chaotically" off the container, the trajectory in the beginning is slightly more steep and the bombs decellerate quite much initially, but they recover to a normal trajectory within ~1 second.
The best tactics is to drop this bomb like normal ones, just take into account that they will fall slightly short compared to a normal "SC" bomb type.
It works pretty well on level-drops from ~1-2km altitude against large targets like airfields.
It's reasonably effective against anything non-armored, since this bomb also has a fragmentation component (albeit a very small one) and it will set anything on fire if you score direct hits. The latter might kill one or another tank, too.

Me-262 V3 Simulation enhancements:
  • Elevator neutralized while being wing alee
  • Engine Acceleration (40s for idle -> full) set according to historical values
  • Throttle movement limits adjusted, now "spikes" of sudden changes up to 10% are allowed and the shortes time for idle->full is just below 15 seconds (full->idle twice as fast)
Please find a demonstration of fastest possible Throttle movement in "throttle up" direction and engine spoolup time below.
You will notice that the throttle up test starts when chocks are engaged, right at the beginning the throttle jumps from idle to 10% ("spike" test) and goes up to 100% in the fastes time without blowing up the engines.
Engine acceleration is distinctively behind throttle movement.
Once throttle is at 100% you will see a time (in milliseconds) for this test.
Once the engines reach >8000 RPM (full speed without time limits), you will see the spoolup time (in milliseconds) too.



Throttling down can be twice as fast as throttling up, but engine reaction times are the same.

You can see other planes' control surfaces moving and see where the pilots look at, e.g. this AI plane is in a dogfight with a Spitfire:


AI pilots watch their wing leader while flying in formation:


Patch Level shown for all players online (and server):


Torpedo failure probability depends on how far you exceed Torpedo drop limits (press Tab key to see drop parameters ingame):


New Mod Settings Screen available (see "Mods" Button):


The Screen holds lots of additional helpful settings for the game:


For a full list of setting descriptions, see the
Manual for new "Mod Settings" GUI (included in Patch Pack Download Package):

It's unbelievable how the work really shaped and changed UP3 so much. UP3 PP 301 is probably the most sophisticated of IL-2 installs that IL-2 has ever seen, excluding BAT and all those new things. We've got PARKING sensors (mid air hooking sensors) in IL-2, imagine that! 8) 

it's amazing what all the team has done to ensure and final tune UP3. Well done to everyone involved for all their work and effort. <3

Zu irgendeinem Zeitpunkt hat jemand gemeint, die SC 500 hätte auch so einen Stabilisierungsring. Ich glaube es war Zorin.
Das kam dann in UP3 und hat es auch irgendwie in alle nachfolgen Weapon Packs geschafft, z.B.
https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,38782.0.html

please make UP compatible with DCG


Cheers!

(...) "SC 500" (...)
Alright...
Further investigation shows that this type of bomb is an SC-500J ("Grade III" SC-500).
--> http://michaelhiske.de/Wehrmacht/Luft/D_LUFT/4300/TEIL_1/HEFT_3/Abbildungen/Abb_04.htm
It's a special bomb type intended to be used against merchant ships and apparently it has been common for Fw-190 during some period after BoB.
No idea why this shape made it to our "default" SC-500 in Zorin's mod though. Probably just a mistake.
Fact is, all packs since then have it implemented like this, including DBW, UP3, CUP, BAT and VP Modpack.

Cheers!

Patch Pack 301 + Ecran Wide mod works, it's confirmed by many users.
If it doesn't work for you, then you probably have another incompatible mod installed.
Please show us your logfile.

hi Mike. hi guys. thank you so much for a great new patch. i also have one little question about defaultFOV mod and Fov changer mod. they worked really well combined in 2.16 version but now works properly only FoVchanger mod(i can switch up to 150 FOV or so...). DefaultFOV mod which is really a cool mod works only if i use "switch to pilot key" (default is 1 i guess), otherwise it would not lock my desired FOV and can go over 102 in my case. But thats not a problem, I can use that "Switch to pilot key" to immidiately get desired FOV but when i try to make an external view, after that i cant switch back to pilot seat anyhow.

can any1 solve this please?

"+0000_CY6_Command_and_Control_v3.031" mod is compatible with 301 huray!
