I actually prefer lightning, Sun and Moon rendition, clouds and weather effects overall in IL.2 Battle of to DCS, at least in their present versions.


Maybe version 2.0 of DCS can make my mind ( ? ).


Then there's that much more plausible identification of distant objects, particularly aircraft, in IL.2, compared to the various approaches used in DCS.


The only negative aspects in terms of scenery rendering in IL.2 are those derived from that awful "hallo of mist" around the aircraft, particularly noticeable the higher you climb, making realistic use of operational altitudes for some missions useless, IMO...


I really hope 1C / 777 finds some way of getting rid of these effect in future releases.

I would agree if it had not been for the rendering of trees and grass at low level. I find it to disturb much of a otherwise pleasant view.


Sorry to hear about the Stuka, I never really believed it would come, kind of given up the WW2 stuff in this game and concentrate on the things I do like to do right now

100 octane fuel was in wide  spread use during the BoB by RAF FC.The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed. There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.   Amiable to the Amiable; Inflexible to the Arrogant We never refuse to correct something that was found outside ED if it is really proven...But we never will follow some "experts" who think that only they are the greatest aerodynamic guru with a secret knowledge. Yo-Yo knows what he is doing and is delivering great products. That is why I bought DCS.

I guess expanding the map so much could have something to do with the delay. Too bad they aren't very open about it. That is no doubt a very awesome B-17. I just hope one day a modder can make it flyable...

I'm happy it will be there even as an AI bomber... it will make for some interesting escort/interception missions depending on your bent of course.

Not planning on buying DCS WWII but having the south of England and AI bombers is a good idea. Available "soon" smh

The towns on that map look awesome.

Can't help but being a little underwhelmed by the way the B-17 looks in-game. The aluminium surfaces look okay-ish, but nothing like what was teased in the WIP shots of the 3D model.

Well I think I pointed it out before, and explained a bit about reflections - but that early shot was a render in the 3D program/Max with global illumination and and HDRI map. So those reflections were due to actually simulated photons bouncing around.

It couldn't look like that in-game unless the reflections were faked and static. I believe I brought this up in relation to the Spitfire shots.
