4K skins are slowly becoming a reality, and the long wok done by Neeraj was definitely worth it.  :salute: 

A bit sad to not get some patch release notes or a more precise ETA, though.

Thanks for your excellent work!

Just yeaterday i commented somewhere that i didn't expect the damage textures to be upgraded anytime soon. I'll gladly eat my words.

 

Also, good first choice as BlackSix's IL2 43 campaign will be out with (after?) the 3.001 patch.

Great work. The new mapping gives a much improved sense om material in these composite constructions.

 

Can’t wait for 3.001 and can’t wait for 4K skins to slowly find their way into the core of the sim :)

Incredibly good work! The damage and panel lines look amazing!

 

 

If I could make one observation.

One detail still desperately in need of 4k love is the tyres. The Il-2 tyres tread are all quite fuzzy and blurred.

Great work indeed...

Since we spend most of the time inside cokpits, would 4k upgrade be beneficial or even possible also for

cokpit's gauges and panel textures ?

Thanks for the update Han.

 

Thanks to BlackHellHound1 for all the hours of work, well done!

 

The last skin shown I'm guessing is a naval one, not seen that scheme before.  It has my interest.  Very different from all the others I have seen for any IL2.

Lol some people here. You get a DD and still complain. The wanted release date has been spoken about numerous times already.

Exactly.

 

Btw, the most recent update was yesterday, via the marketing email where it said Q1 2018.

BlackHellHound has done some fantastic skinning work - I have long been a fan. Glad to see him getting official recognition for his efforts.

What exactly do you expect? Most feautures of the upcoming patch have beem revealed before and showing early BoBP work before Kuban is even done is a bad practise.

 

Honestly, be glad for what we've got.
