Hi all,

the beta of 4.09 is out it includes the following

Patch 4.09mBeta

Patch includes:

___________________________________


* New maps:
Bessarabia
Iasi (online)
Odessa (online)
MTO
Slovakia
Slovakia (online)

* New default skins for planes

409b1m.zip contains maps only.
If you want to install replacement skins then download
409b1m_skins.zip and install over the map pack.
fb_3do20.sfs from the map pack have to be overwritten.


***** CHANGES in GRAPHICS ***********************

* Increased buffer size for stationary objects (buildings etc.)
to prevent freezes under some circumstances.

* Colors of water corrected for Water=2,3,4 modes.
Now when looking down it is no more black/dark blue.

* Optimized Shaders for Nvidia 8X00 series video cards.

* Added a new mode for increased visibility distance.
Visibility increased from 36 km to 72km
under "Clear" and "Good" weather conditions.

Note: This mode is not optimized for performance
(freezes and low fps are possible on low-end systems)
This mode is recommended for fast CPUs & powerful video
cards such as Nvidia 8800 series, ATI X1800 series or better.
With 512 MB of video RAM.

This new feature is available only in "Perfect" game graphics mode.

Also, there is a possibility to have problems with clouds and their
shadows at far distances, due to some engine limitations.

Modify your conf.ini string in the [Render_OpenGL] section
to use this mode:

LandGeom=3 (new mode is ON)
LandGeom=2 (back to normal mode).


___________________________________

Lets hope that it being only the Beta version that the full release might contain the Slovak birds?
I'm downloading now so I will let you know what impact it has on our modded version

For myself, I'll test to see if the sound mod works with it. I don't fly online anymore anyhow. It'll be nice to tweak the existing maps with the new textures.

Interesting that an iteration the visibility-mod got incorporated into 4.09 :)

Downloading at the moment, but it's S-L-O-O-O-W......... as in 7.8 kB/sec :(
Mr. Jolly, it might be better to wait with a new file extractor until the final version of 4.09 is released. The final version of the file extractor might be different from the Beta, and waiting one or two weeks might prevent a lot of work.
