Brief description: Shadow anomalies after 3.007 and 3.008

 

Detailed description: After updates 3.007 and 3.008 shadows have started to flicker or change shape strangely. They seem to grow bigger and cover bigger area than they should. This flickers at random. I managed to catch the anomaly while flying Stuka D-3. The shadow flickered and then grew bigger. If changed view the anomaly disappeared. This did not happen up to 3.006.

 

Additional information: Game settings ULTRA / High except grass on Normal and Mirrors on medium setting. WHQL drivers on hardware seen in signature.

By adding an antenna we could simulate the bf109 G-10.
Also the k4 had an antenna.

Detailed description, conditions:

Adding to my previous post, on closer inspection It also appears that for Soviet trains at least, that the Loko's Coal Tender may no longer display any kind of damaged model.

 

I have not checked this for German trains, but will do so and report back.

Brief description: Error in the representation of water in a mirror

 

Detailed description: Irrespective of the graphic settings and the mirror, an error occurs in waters (especially the sea). It seems that part of the texture just doesn't exist.  Maybe it has something to do with a render area. I then tested various graphics settings and still had the error, as I said before.  I only noticed it since the last patch 3.008.

 

Additional assets:  Here I have two pictures, one Spitfire and one P-47, to illustrate the problem

Detailed description: I think the bug is related to the point 4 from the 3.008 patch notes; the "Additional renderer optimizations for sea maps..."

It's actually correct. Rain in clouds is overdone in other planes, you usually don't get drops on your canopy (in a real flight) with the gentle stratus or stratocumulus clouds modelized in IL-2, you'd need at least nimbostratus or cumulus clouds.

Brief description:  Co-pilot right thumb, clips steering wheel
Detailed description, conditions: The thumb on the co-pilot's right hand, goes through part of the steering wheel. This applies for both level flight and when the aircraft is sitting idle on the ground. While I could imagine the odd clipping during drastic manoeuvres, the reported problem applies to the default, level-flight state. Probably could be fixed by raising the entire co-pilot model by 1 cm (we wouldn't notice a 1cm gap at the feet, but the hands are really obvious).

I'll get the mission file next time I see it, now I don't think I can find it anymore.

In the meantime, like I said it's occuring at dusk when the sun is starting to rise over the horison and as for the cloud type I let you be the judge of that.

Thank you for the answer!

Brief description: flickering P-47 canopy in F2 view.

 

Detailed description: when "cinematic" camera option is enabled, switching to F2 view and rotating camera with moderate speeds causes the perspex part of P-47 canopy to blurr out and flicker. It seems the algorithm responsible for blurring the terrain and any fast moving elements of the rendered scene in cinematic mode works on the perspex as well, even though it's one of the slow moving objects, being located close to camera rotation point.

Unfortunately we can't fix it

Bomber at high altitude could only be seen from the contrails.

Here the track.

Brief description: graphics artefacts, white contours around cockpit features and other planes
Detailed description, conditions:

Best seen in the screenshots, there are white contours around the cockpit frame, the wings, engine, and other airplanes. They really stand out over ground and forest by contrast. Most are also visible at night which makes night mission very bad. Those artefacts change with time, depending on the angle, so they are very distracting.

 

I haven't noticed those artefacts before, or not to that extend, it seems very recent, probably with 3.009.

 

Anti-aliasing is not disbled in the nVidia driver, those are the standard settings (decided by the application), and antialiasing is set to max in the IL-2 options (see screenshot). It doesn't seem to work very well, though, most contours and features like antenna wire, for ex. in the main game screen in rotation around an airplane, show very visible aliasing as long as I can remember in IL-2. Perhaps both issues are linked even if the reported issue is more recent?

Missing controls in U2-VS cockpit


Detailed description, conditions:

The U2-VS is missing the bomb release levers in the front cockpit, although the frames to hold them are shown. However, it is possible for the player to drop the bombs whether he/she is in the pilot's or observer's seat. Even when the observer/gunner is dead the bombs may still be dropped by the pilot.

 

Fix:

Either

a) include the levers in the front cockpit

or

b) prevent the player from dropping bombs unless they are in the rear cockpit.

We have already reduced the contours, but these are technical limitations which so far cannot be fixed. How can you see the contours appear only against the background of the forest
