Spring brings forth eternal hope (Gengoult Airdrome, Toul domain, France 1918).











Much more to come!

I'd be remiss if I didn't say that there's something in the air.

Don't lose your compass heading, or you might need to make a quick left turn at Verdun (maybe over that distant ridge line):



The environs around Toul:







These screenshots reflect terrain and environmental work in progress, which will be improved upon before the sim's release (like the cloud look for instance).

Get a LOD at this:

Thanks for the reference-post update Dave.

(Actually, where the heck did you get these? You're in some clandestine beta program aren't you?) ;\)

Nice to see cloud shadows cast on the landscape. If they're on the landscape I'm hoping they will be cast on the planes as well which is very cool.

The atmospheric tint on the draw distance is well done. I don't see any crappy draw-clipping either.

Looks like a subtle curve on the horizon too.

Looks like terrain detailed enough for a simmer to actually navigate by.

Nice Gennadich, very nice indeed.

S!

Kevin, I'm sure the KOTS Team and NEOQB as well are interested in your impressions here.

Nice to see rivers relative to elevations that aren't 2d!

Very nice. I had to do a double take on the first pic. Almost photo realistic. Any idea if there will be river bank elevations...I know they plan them for SOW.

I will go to the bottom of our stairs

Sumptuous, practically edible. We didn't realise just how hungry we are to climb in and fly this <rumbling from central food-processing area>

Aerial perspective spot on, artist at work, there may be water vapour. Just needs a red triplane in every shot please

Btw, since Ming seems hungry for more (there's more to come). ;\)

Chivas, I wonder about those river bank elevations too!

Proper river banks must wait until the upgraded Il-2 engine for BoB I think FR but those banks look very good in that last shot - thanks!

The BoB terrain engine has the possibility to have sharper-turning polygons IIRC whereas Il-2 vertexes can't turn sharply so everything (acceptably!) rolls. The idea perhaps being that one can't see these sharp edges from a fast plane anyway so Oleg optimised for framerate (less vertexes to process) which is no bad thing

Red Arrows flyby the London Eye tomorrow to celebrate the RAF's 90 birthday. Camera batteries will need charging they can shift a bit

ooh yes! we like it very much VikS, a thousand thanks to you and the gennadich team

3D isn't all it's cracked up to be, illusions in 2D created by sympatico artists are called trompe l'oeil: fools the eye. Your artist's work is very good and eminently suitable for the Somme. It ended up very flat by the time the gennadich team arrives on the scene didn't it

We wait to see what you will do when you get your hands on a licence to develop sims under the Storms of War engine... wow and question two can we have an armour sim please too. WW2 thanks

Ming, Viks and the team are nothing to do with Oleg and his team or the Il2 engine. It's a totally independent venture. I think that has been mentioned a few times now. I reckon yer noggin's feeling it's age \:\)

....and what stunning shots...
Wibble indeed....x2
