A new era of plane. In 40 years we went from below 100 to almost 1000kmh. Very excited to try to 262!

Mission format changes: Will mission creators be given any details on what changed?  Are the mission text files affected?

Don't worry, it's just the binary part which needs to be deleted and regenerated, or uses the resave option in the mission editor.  It's nothing more than we already had.

Thanks for the update!

My guess would be the debut of the 262 will occur at the Sim convention followed immediately,  if not simultaneously,  with release to IL-2 customers. 

 

I must confess, the first thing I plan to do with my beautiful new Schwalbe is to jam the the throttle forward and watch the fireworks ensue. I just won't be able to resist the temptation! I don't know yet if I will then bail out or try to dead stick it home.

My favorite game just gets better and better! IL-2 rocks! I can't wait for the 262! Thank you again for the hard work, Devs...:pilot:😀

Thanks for today's DD.  I think that the next release will a day or two prior to the Flight Sim Expo, my reasoning is that the team would want in our hands so that they can show what BOX is like in the hands of their customer base.

 

And  again thank you for the great DD.😊

Skins looking good and so are the normalmaps!

 

I've been paying attention to the normalmaps and upgrading many to my own version of 4K since a lot of them have a lot of of squared pixels (i assume it's the compression).

 

I took a look at the U2VS and the normalmap is fantastic, so big thumbs up to Yugra Media for their work on the plane! That's the standard i would like to see the rest of the planes upgraded to when time and resources permit.

Very nice work, A20s this silhouette will haunt us !!

 

I hope we will have some videos and impressions of these IL2 tests in VR on 6DOF.

 

But it seemed to me that IL2 only supported two axes until now?

Would there be new things to expect from this side for the new update?

I wonder what the new technique for making 4k skins is and how this will help the guys making skins. Will this apply to other aircraft or just from the me262 onwards

Great news! I'll see you all in Orlando to thank you in person for all your hard work in making the IL-2 series the best combat flight sim to date!

6DOF motion-sim by Gforcefactory...   I have GOT to get me one of those!  :yahoo: That with VR, I may never leave the chair again! (I was hoping someone would invent something like that, I stated almost as much in a previous post somewhere, )  Though,  it doesn't quite look capable of producing those extreme positive and negative Gs. :russian_ru: Maybe mixed with a little Vodka, it might enhance the effect. 

Either way, I am understandably curious and have to give it a go.  Now on my wish list.

Thanks for the heads up on the need to capture video on old tracks before the update - I expect this only affects a few people at any time but it was hugely frustrating to lose work.

Yeah, thanks for the warning about resaving missions for scripted campaigns too. I was just about to post a new one I finished, but I will wait until after the update now.

Not likely, if they did that, it wouldn’t be a world debut at the FSExpo.

Hopefully the 4k skins can be switched on and off to help us VR guys out.

 

Super excited for the 262, 38, and 51.  Best of luck at the flight sim expo. Thank you for the continued development.  IL2 is such a deep, immersive and engaging title

Very impressed by the photo's of the 262, like the aircraft in the museum at RAF Cosford it has the 'beaten panel' look of the aircraft of that era. Well done

God I can’t wait to get my hands on that Me 262! It looks beautiful and I’m sure it will be a blast to play. 

 

Hopefully it goes well and this is a testbed for a possible IL-2 Korean Air War! It would be fun flying Sabres, Mig-15s.... but that’s a whole different topic :) 

 

The dev team keeps improving this game and it’s just getting better and better. Keep it up!

That option is, fortunately, already available. Under settings turn off 4K skins. Voila :)

Does this however not pose a problem with microstutters?

It certainly does for my old GPU and I've never tried it with my new GPU. Either way, 4K textures seem to contribute little to the total VRAM being sucked up compared to some of the graphically intense stuff like sharpening and distance terrain rendering.

 

I'd leave 4K textures on unless you're really having a problem. My old GTX 960 with 2GB VRAM had no difference in FPS either way and VRAM usage was not really that different either.

Hopefully the  'Ctrl+F1 GLITCH' in replay footage will become a part of the past after this update? Hopefully?

That aside the promise of new stuff is always 'another Christmas'!! Thanks guys.

Thanks for the tips fellas, was not sure if 4k textures applied to aircraft, environment, or both.  No microstutters here with it disabled on my i9900k + 2080

The dimpled surface of the metal looks fantastic.  Can't wait to get in my silver P-38 with 4k textures.

Be aware that if you do, you will never be able to go back. It really changes the game  into a different experience.

true, we all miss the times when there was no one on the forums complaining about not being able to see people in MP cause of bad VR resolution 😂

I also would like to express my excitement about the upcoming release of the Me 262.

 

*Edit: This is my first post and i just realized that only BOBP is showing up below my avatar.. i also have BOS but i bought it via Steam, so i guess there is no way to show BOS in my avatar too?

Personal opinion , me and 2 other 307th members do not use vr at all after initial 2 weeks of testing. Current gen tech and its demands are not that good for competitive multiplayer gameplay . There are exceptions hence it's personal opinion .

I didn't particularly like VR either. The game looks... bad with it, things are in low res and the game just looks bland... Perhaps in a few years, that'll change.

 

Not to mention the price of a rig that can handle VR, the game, and the VR it's self is... no there isn't really justification I feel. I'd rather pay to some real flight classes.

Guys, I haven't seen you ask any questions regarding VR in the specialised section on these forums.

 

Setting up VR is tricky, especially in IL-2, but it's very easy to get good results. You guys just didn't do it properly, nor put the time into it to set it up correctly. I am certain of that, and in cases mentioned, it's not even assumption. Of course it won't be fun to you this way. But I admit it's not easy to setup. There's only one proper way //hint, check my Signature.

 

@Sinerox

I'm still ready to help you out with setup, zoom installation, game-, and VR-settings, like more than half a dozen within SCG. Who all enjoy next-gen immersion and performance in VR now.
