TFS 5.0 Ground and Smoke Effect Update

Recommended Posts

Work in progress of the new ground dust and smoke effects for TFS 5.0.

 

IL-2 Cliffs of Dover Blitz upcoming North African expansion

 

All components shown are WIP. 

 

The current foliage is a placeholder, there will be multiple bush types, with different colours.

 

The Trench lines and fortifications are also Alpha, and will be altered to provide a more natural look.

 

Desert tank skins to be added in future updates.

So happy to see this game growing better and better. I´m sure Tobruk will be a very good game. Do all those engine improvements also go into the BoB part or are they limited to the North-African Scenario?

Hello sevenless

 

Some of the changes will be incorporated into CLIFFS OF DOVER, but some will not.

 

For example, any weather system changes will be added to CoD.

 

But in other instances, as for example the dust effects... will be limited to the TF 5.0 Tobruk map... because the large amounts of dust generated by vehicles and aircraft were a particular feature of the Desert and are not seen on grass or paved airfields or on the hardened or paved European roads.  Later we may add changes in the code to allow for dirt airfields on Northern European maps, but not for TF 5.0.

The effects look really good.

 

One thing I've wished as an ability to pick among effects in this sim (i.e. an option to keep the original effects and terrain colours). I've never been one for big fireballs, or for high-definition fire effects - they often don't give me the sense of high explosives or aircraft fires for me... it is largely a matter of preference though (I'm by no means certain that my preference is more realistic - even if I suspect it sometimes, I could be biased).

 

So it is nice to the subtler special effects in this video.

Nice , the smoke is not fade in and out 😂 

BTW one thing I would add , when shell do explode in sand , it should lift up sand , now the smoke is gray should be mixed with yellow colour.

This has been done.  You will see the sand colour when we post updates with bomb explosions on the Desert map.

Will this become effective only with 5.0 or will there be a 4.5X update in the next near future with this weather system effects already been incorporated ?
