  1. Got it . . . everything is working now! Thank you all again for your help.
  2. I still can't find it . . . in my IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\graphics\planes\ is only a "icustom_photo.dds" which is the miniature for external view when you look from outside into the cockpit. I had made a mini-mod for myself for all cockpits using: data\graphics\planes\textures but it no longer works
  3. I can no longer replace the photo in the cockpit by my own custom photo . . . I checked with unGTP.exe and its no longer lokated in the plane/texture folder. So, where is it now? Anyone any ideas? Greetings little Guardian
  4. After lengthy comparison of the various settings of "horizon draw distance" in the main graphic section of the game, it seems to me that the draw distance has a profound effect on the whole appearance of the weather . . . even more than changes in the weather settings inside the maps. If you compare horizon draw distance 40 km to 150 km the difference is quite obvious. (And impressive) But, as I said, in order to change draw distance I have to go all the way back into the main graphics settings and then, after changing it I have to restart the whole game. Is it possible to move or link the horizon draw distance setting to the weather settings in the maps, so that one doesn't have to restart the whole game? In this way one could use the various draw distance settings to combine and enhance the settings for time of day, haze etc. Greetings the Little Guardian
  5. I have a weird problem . . . Il2 was running perfectly since years now - and out of the blue this: Game simply doesn't start any more . . . Running Windows 7 64 Pro & Oculus Rift No OC, no fancy background programs. Didn't change any hardware lately. Didn't install any new software since weeks. All other games are working fine. "ucrtbase.dll" seems to be part of C++ , so I de&reinstalled all C++ versions. No Change . . . Downloaded Il2 BoX completely new from scratch. Started the untouched new game: same problem . . . Any ideas? The only dump-file I could find is this: Il-2.exe.2908.dmp.zip Thankful for any help . . . little Guardian
  6. Thanks again KpgQuop, I just love the skin! Here is a little thank you for your incredible work: https://www.mediafire.com/file/p7ltcgjx6jx3i7n/Cockpit_Hs129b2_4K-eyecandy.zip/file Did my best to correct/replace typos etc. upscaled or reworked some textures (like the leather rim) and changed some aspects of the alphas . . . Greetings and thanks again little Guardian
  7. Type of improvement: Gameplay/graphic appearance Explanation of proposals: Living in Europe and having traveled a lot, one thing that is obviously missing in the game is: Churches! In literally EVERY town I have visited there is a church or two (katholic/protestant) in the middle of the village or town or city always close or at the marketplace. During WW II the church towers were important landmarks for both artillerie and bombercrews (big and small) Benefits: would look much more life like . . . Here are some Postcards from the WW II era: Besides that: Great Game !!!
  8. Honestly, I don't know if it is possible since it would require a complete rebuilt of the 3D surrounding . . . which I couldn't do anyway. I'm not very good with 3D Max, but since I haven't seen 3D files so far (at least none that I'm familiar with), I would expect these files to be blocked or encrypted. Greetings
  9. VR-only Hangarscene Eyecandy Mod https://www.mediafire.com/file/psmvx0hih325z5r/Hangar_Mod.zip/file ! This Mod is only meant for VR ! While in the normal version of the game the camera circles around the plane, in the VR version the camera is fixed. Using this mod in the normal version will make your camera move through the wings and fuselage of your plane . . . you do not want this! No change in FPS and the Mod shouldn’t interfere with any other Mod. Finalized for JGSME, just drop both folders into the "_MOD" folder in your main game folder and activate it through JGSME. This Mod actually consists of two parts: The first part changes the look of the default floor in the hangar scene when the game starts and also some parts of the surrounding. I put two alternative textures for “detail1.dds” in the folder “extras”: …../data/graphics/scene/mainscene/textures/extras that I called “detail1 RUS Version.dds” and “detail1 US Version.dds” The only difference to the active detail1.dds is the poster that you can see on a pillar. But since the pillar is right behind you to your left you will probably never notice it . . . Backup/rename the original one before renaming one of these to detail1.dds. You can just delete the folder “extras” if you don’t want to switch . . . The second part changes where you (the camera) are positioned in the hangar, by moving you much closer to your plane . . . so that you can admire the quality of the skin and the amazing detail of the model. 😉 The possibilities here are quite limited. Every plane or vehicle has a .txt file that includes the following: Example: // angle - grad height – meters angle=11.7 This is the angle of the planes axis in relation to the floor height=2.35 The height in meter/cm – you can lower a plane one cm to make it look heavier. I did this for the big planes . . . dist=9.5 Viewers distance to the center of the plane. The most important parameter. x_center_shift=0.3 The center of the plane is fixed, but you can move the plane itself forward (adding) or backwards (substracting). So, changing 0.3 to -1.7 moves the plane 2 meters forward z_center_shift=-0.7 moves the plane itself to the left or right. (Looks kind of weird, use with caution) scene_type=0 No idea what this is . . . Thanks to this great community! And thank you for this amazing game the little Guardian The mod contains all the planes and tanks I have, so there can be one or two that are missing. New floor: Change in Camera position:
  10. Thanks for the tip, I will check this ASAP Greetings little Guardian
  11. Don't know if I'm the only one having this problem or if it has been mentioned already . . . but the flightstick in the P-38 is constantly jittering/quivering or however one would call it. It's the only plane where this is happening, so I'm pretty sure it's not my hardware doing this. Thanks for this incredible game! Especially in VR it's a dream come true . . . little Guardian
  12. . . . . and again amazed by the fine details! Great work! the little Guardian
  13. Looks really good and quite realistic in the Game! Would you like to share what numbers exactly you altered in the files ? Thanks a lot little Guardian
