B.A.T. V3.6 THE BLITZ
« on: April 13, 2019, 01:17:09 AM »

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

(art by Dietz)

B.A.T. 3.6 THE BLITZ

DEAD EASY INSTALL EXE

DOWNLOAD THE FOUR MAIN PARTS + THE EXE
PLACE EVERYTHING INTO A COMMON SEPARATE FOLDER
RUN THE INSTALLER.EXE


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

What is the full B.A.T. Install Sequence to this point?
STEP 1 - Il2 4:12m - Install Il2 patched to 4:12m
STEP 2 - B.A.T. Install - Basic Install of B.A.T.
STEP 3 - 3.0 Checkpoint Charlie - First Expansion Set
STEP 4 - 3.1 Operation Sealion - Second Expansion Set
STEP 5 - 3.2 Angels High - Third Expansion Set
STEP 6 - 3.3 Pathfinder  - Fourth Expansion Set
STEP 7 - 3.4 Linebacker  - Fifth Expansion Set (Installer MANDATORY!)
STEP 8 - 3.5 Musketeer - Sixth Expansion Set
STEP 9 - 3.6 The Blitz - Seventh Expansion Set

Always use the installer .exe!

*attention, for technical reasons, all contents of #xxx3 folders will always be erased on install of a new version! Do not simply "drop on top"!




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

BAT 3.6 The Blitz!

This is the seventh B.A.T. expansion set, it brings even more new content, maps, aircraft and general fixes and updates from the best mod makers for your pleasure.

But wait, The Blitz is special!

For a long time there has been a slow decrease in performance, as B.A.T. kept growing and growing. The FPS rates in crowded missions were falling as the content list grew and grew. We have 1200 aircraft in B.A.T. WAW alone  and still new aircraft are being made by modders.

The reason has been known as "The java wall", an effect related to how the base game engine of Il-2 works. Remember, we are dealing with a game here that's been designed over a decade ago.

But now for the first time in Il-2 modding history, the java wall has been breached for good by SAS-Storebror. A method has been developed to enhance the game performance by a level of magnitude!

SAS~Storebror has reworked every aircraft class in B.A.T. and as a result, B.A.T. now has more than doubled the FPS output. Now, even a titanic planeset like in WAW  produces the same FPS in any given mission just as a slim install or the stock game!

Take that, Java Wall!




This allows for more aircraft or objects in any given mission and has pushed the boundary of performance far out, so it will not be a concern any more for the foreseeable future.

I cannot thank SAS~Storebror enough for having the breakthrough idea of what to do in the first place and and also for the enormous work of actually pulling this titanic effort off!


FAQ:

Is everything fixed now?
Is it ever? BAT 3.6 THE BLITZ incorporates all previous quickfixes and much much more. The class rework is a massive change to the game...

Do I need to install all the other Expansions to this point?
Yes. You need to have version B.A.T. 3.5 Musketeer for installation.
Always use the exe installer!


What's new?
Come and see, here's the tour...


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

ALL MODULES

New and improved IL-2 Selector.exe supplied by SAS~Storebror!
Version 3.5.2 
Quote
*ATTENTION!* Windows might throw a warning at you when you launch it for the first time, because it is an unknown .exe file. You have to permit the execution and from then on, Windows should be comfortable again, as it was with your old version.


The most immediately noticeable change in the game is a fresh and more detailed set of GUI buttons and text fields, courtesy of vpmedia!


A big project that spreads out all across B.A.T. - finally all the old incompatible 4.09 and 4.10 cockpits get updated to become operational in 4.12:



by Whistler and SG_Stefan!


New Maps, available for all modules:

- AviaArctic                           (mixx)

Yermolayev Yer-2           
The Yermolayev Yer-2 was a long-range Soviet medium bomber. It was developed from the Bartini Stal-7 prototype airliner before the war. It was used to bomb Berlin from airbases in Estonia after Operation Barbarossa began in 1941. Production was terminated in August 1941 to allow the factory to concentrate on building higher-priority Ilyushin Il-2 ground-attack aircraft, but was restarted at the end of 1943 with new Diesel engines.

Although designed as a long-range medium bomber it was flown on tactical ground-attack missions during the Battle of Moscow with heavy losses. The survivors were flown, in ever dwindling numbers, until August 1943 when the last examples were transferred to schools.

10242 default skins for all Mirage aircraft and the Mi-24V.
These should then be the last resizing defaults. The general rule is, that all default skins in B.A.T. should be 10242, therefore not forcing the player to use huge HD skins. It's your choice now.


Many of the old helicopter "AI buddies" have now been retired.
With most helicopters having the Vega one-fits-all flightmodel, these can be used for player and AI alike.

BATMODS - JSGME options

We have revised, updated or removed certain JSGME options in the BATMODS folder. The installer is doing this job for you.
Some older options are now removed because they no longer are compatible or have been integrated into B.A.T.

Thanks and praises for everyone involved in mod-making! For more detailed credits check the links for the individual mods, most of the time the finishing of one aircraft is the work of many.
Special thanks to SAS~Storebror, whistler, western, Stefan_SG, SAS~Bombsaway and everyone else I forgot for their support.
