Ultrapack 3.2
« on: May 16, 2019, 04:59:25 AM »

Another year, another Ultrapack 8)

It's time for the next big step in Ultrapack Development.
Today we're proud to release Ultrapack 3.2, incorporating our enhanced IL-2 1946 core engine version 4.50, the famous "Java Wall" fix and a couple of new planes and other improvements.

Starting with this version, we are going to develop Ultrapack further step by step to become the full-blown "online sister" pack to other great offline packs like BAT or VP.
Due to the integration of new mods, fully backward compatibility with Ultrapack 3 RC4 can't be maintained anymore.
Therefore, updating your Ultrapack to the most recent release from now on will become a mandatory task.
There is, however, a limited backward compatibility: You can connect to an Ultrapack 3.2 Server if you are running Ultrapack 3 RC4 yourself, but please be aware that there will be visual glitches, lack of content and possible lockups.

Long story short, here are the download links for the most recent release as of 2019-05-30, Ultrapack "Patch 5":

Download Link (Mediafire):Ultrapack 3.2 Patch 5
Mirror (OneDrive):Ultrapack 3.2 Patch 5
Mirror (Mega):Ultrapack 3.2 Patch 5

Virustotal Report here (2 false positives on pretty off scanners so far... 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. Ultrapack 3.2 will be enabled automatically and you can choose additional JSGME Options as you like.

Hotfix 2019-06-06:
* Fix for Pe-2 1941 (series 32) loadout issues
* Fix for debugging messages left in CR.32 and CR.42 classes

(*) 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:

DEBUG_NETAIRCRAFT=<0/1>    NetAircraft debugging, default=0, 0=disable, 1=enable, useful e.g. for weapon trigger replication
DEBUG_BOMB=<0/1>           Bomb debugging, default=0, 0=disable, 1=enable, useful e.g. for Bomb Fuze / Delay replication (also for Torps and Rockets)

Additionally implemented Logfile Switches:
You can adjust log.lst Date/Time output by setting the following values in the conf.ini [Mods] section:

LogDate=<0/1>              Date output in log.lst, default=0, 0=disable, 1=enable
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"
InstantLog=<0/1/2>         Instant Logging support. "0" uses Stock IL-2 Logging, "1" uses old (slow) Instant Logging, "2" uses new "Piped" Instand Logging (available since PP 303)

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

Installation:
1.) Download the file
2.) Run the installer
3.) At the end, JSGME will open up. UP3 + Patch Pack will be enabled automatically and you can choose additional JSGME Options as you like.

           3do/plane/Me-262V-3
           inside that mod folder (e.g. the path in your game might be like "#UP#\Fixed cowling engine & props\3do\plane\Me-262V-3") to
           3do/plane/-Me-262V-3
           or simply remove the "Me-262V-3" of it.
           If you don't do so, your engines will die on ground start.



Cheers!

Hi Mike. Your continued development of this sim is greatly appreciated.
It may be a silly question or two but
1. Do I need previous UP versions to start this.
2.Which stock game do I need to add this to.
3. Is this for mainly online or offline use.
4. What are the main differences to BAT and Vp that I thoroughly enjoy already.
I thought BAT had replaced UP and DBW which were based on the older Il2 versions. I already have five different setups of Il2 1946 and am running out of space!

Ultrapack 3.2 installs on top of Ultrapack 3 RC4 (with or without Patch Pack, stated in the installer).
Stock game version to start with for Ultrapack is 4.10.1.
Ultrapack is mainly for online use.
The difference to BAT and VP is that Ultrapack is mainly for online use ;)
Plus the fact that Ultrapack is the only game version which features the full blown Zuti "Moving Dogfight Server". You don't find that anywhere else.

BAT replaced CUP replaced TFM replaced DBW 2.0 replaced DBW. All of these are offline packs. Ultrapack took a completely different direction of development with a completely different focus.
Prior to being a "has everything in one big can" pack, Ultrapack's focus is on smooth, reliable, predictable behaviour when being used online.

Thanks Mike. I am shot down enough offline without worrying about online threats as yet. I do appreciate the appeal of online and was once recruited for a London based Squadron but felt out of my depth. I read somewhere you need to be cockpit view only and I have become external view preference to keep me better orientated, especially in bad weather or heavy clouds. Not so realistic I know but hey the aim is to enjoy is it not.

On our SAS/FAC gameserver, we have disabled "wonderwoman" view so you will sit in the real cockpit if you are inside, but outside views are available as well (except for a very few missions where it's necessary to keep you from stalking others on externals).
On our server two squads hold regular sessions, for one that's the FAC on sundays at 2PM Zulu.
Additionally the Chuffy's, a mostly UK based squad, is around on thursdays usually at around 6PM Zulu IIRC.

We're all online playing offliners, that is we are not from the "one guy blows everyone else out of the skies alone" breed, it's rather that we're happy about any landing we can walk away from.
That being said, if you can't fly or look straight if your life would depend on it, you'd probably fit perfectly to our crowd of mindsick clowns 8)

Nice to know Mike. At present I walk away from over 80pc crash landings. Trainer offered to help me conquer landing circuits.
I am currently flying Luftwaffe Fighter South stock campaign and after 76 missions have only landed properly twice! lol. Still only killed myself on landing about three times so getting better. What is it with ground or target fixation. I am glad I wasn't there to help the enemy back then!!

Happy to see great ModPacks are still supported and developed. SAS cares. Well done.

Hi all! any chance to have a sort of one place full organized download page where to download everything from scratch up to this last version? I'd love to try on line gaming.

Pardon my ignorance - what is this IL-2 v4.50?

Also, is there a conf.ini setting or a mod I'm missing that allows me to control how far away a tracer round gets before it switches from the 3d tracer model to the little line? Tracers are disappearing almost as soon as they leave the muzzles of my guns...  :-X
