Looks Great.

Amazing how fast these guys can make a map to fly in. Considering it takes Eagle Dynamics about 5 years to make one.

Love those shots Juri. Makes me want to go out and buy it smile

I remember the Kuban Peninsular map being added to the original IL2 and this map is just amazing !


Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi,
Gwlad beirdd a chantorion, enwogion o fri;
Ei gwrol ryfelwyr, gwladgarwyr tra md,
Dros ryddid collasant eu gwaed.
Gwlad, gwlad, pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad.
Tra mr yn fur i'r bur hoff bau,
O bydded i'r hen iaith barhau.

The new flight models are great, and the Kuban map is amazing.

Well done Jason and crew!

I can only guess all people getting excited over Kuban never flew DCS.
If there is one area I never want to see in a simgame again I can assure you it is the Anapa, Novorossiysk, Krymsk and Krasnodar area.

Saw a youtube video of someone flying on the map yesterday, it really is stunning, and I'm seriously considering buying back into the BoX series.

I have a 563 mb update today but I keep getting a 'missing file privileges' error message. I've re-started Steam and verified the files but no joy.I've never seen this before with any Steam update.Any clues guys?

*Update* Now it starts after a complete re-install.

That doesn´t seem to be true. I have all DCS modules, but I am still excited about this IL2 Kuban map, and about the new FM of BoX, and about the smooth gameplay (high FPS without microstutters), and about the VR implementation, and about the speed of development.

Yes it's a great looking map from the limited time I have spent flying over it so far - it's funny how this terrain is just like an old friend (IL2 & DCS).

The AI improved flight model is great. The AI nervous, constant wobbling, is finally gone. This game is going in the right direction. Wish the in cockpit, looking outside colors were brighter. They're somewhat muted, solved it by flying with the cockpit open where possible. Glass normaly does not take away this much brightness. Just a minor point. The game has improved to the point where I'm flying it again with my Rift and really enjoy it. Kuban map is just icing on the cake. Untill this update I'd maybe played the game for about 10 hours since release because of the #%&*$# flight model. Since updating last week I put at least that much time in.
