Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, im back from my Vacation and the il2 Team has posted some great news for us, you can find the original post in the link below and also larger pics inside it.
 
177
 
Hello everybody,
 
The winter is coming and we're approaching the Battle of Kuban release run. The Career mode texts are finished and being translated right now. Cooperative mode is in the internal testing phase. P-39L, A-20B and Yak-7B flight models are nearly finished, Bf 109 G-6 and La-5FN exterior models are ready and their cockpits are in the works. Today we can show you the current state of the A-20B bomber interior:

We're completing the increased rendering distance feature: the atmospheric haze has been tuned for it and skydome has been completely reworked for daytime and dusk light conditions. At the moment, we're working on winter landscape and skydome graphics, as well on cumulus clouds. Plans for the new year are being finalized and confirmed, but we'll maintain the suspense a bit more, all we can say now is that they'll definitely amaze you. To finish today's relatively short Dev Diary, we present you the first in-game shots of Bf 109 G-6 Collector Plane:

Hello everybody,
 
today we'll briefly tell you about two new features. First, in conjunction with increasing the landscape rendering distance, we also increased the clouds rendering distance - they are now visible almost three times further than before. Together with the new gamma and gradient for the skydome we showed you earlier, it gives the sim a significantly new look. For example, the 'feeling of flight' became even more natural at medium and high altitudes and when you fly under the clouds the new perspective is stunning. We also improved the look of cumulus clouds, making them more realistic and diverse; they can also appear at two layers now. It is interesting to note that we were able to recreate one of the real life effects - the Earth projecting its shadow on the opposite to the setting sun part of the sky). As the popular saying goes, one picture is worth a thousand words:

The second new feature is related to the look of the bare metal parts on various aircraft - in the future, we plan to make planes that weren't painted and had a polished or matte aluminum finish. The metal parts on lend-lease planes P-40E-1, Spitfire Mk.Vb, P-39L-1 and A-20B and Italian MC.202 ser.8 (which also has a bare metal skin) will look even more realistic and authentic.
