[MOD] 4K cockpits for Great Battles WWII Planes!!(Latest update: September 21, 2020)

I thought a bit about undoing all my adjustments... unfortunately nVidia Panel isn't enough for the kind of adjustments I'm doing. After so many hours tweaking and adjusting the game, I finally got rid of (almost all) shimmering, and also the dreaded microstutter from TiR panning (I'm on TrackIR). Image and panning are all perfect, smooth, without jaggies, pretty - even on "crowded space" and with a lot happening around. Since the problem isn't occurring when using the default cockpits, I'll just let it be for now.

It may be related to the driver version, who knows... I'm sure I'll be revisiting this (and maybe tweaking again) as soon as my system updates to Win 2004 and I'm forced to go to a new driver version (new WDDM model?) and/or we receive further game's engine updates. 😏

Ahh that's a shame, I used to have stutters but it was solved by adding Exception to MalwareBytes (virus scanner).

On the positive side you don't have to turn mods on/off/restart anymore to play multiplayer

I can assure you win 2004 + the newest nvidia driver version work perfectly and smooth (letting Nvidia drivers directly manage the VRAM).

Everything 'feels'  better/faster to me in all sims I tried since then (my fps went up by about 1-5 fps, depending on game and settings).

(BTW according to HW website's benchmarking slower GFX cards -like mine in fact - will benefit from this)

I don't have a problem with this mod, except it does not load instantly at initial missions start ... I get a fuzzy cockpit for one or two seconds that may be due to texture loading (?)

But I will never play IL-2 without this cockpit mod !

The first post updated!!
Now the 4 "BOX" contents are integrated into respective packs.
common texture has been merged into BOS pack.

No longer need to install MOD for each plane one by one.
Added enhanced texture of "oil stains on windshield" for 34 Planes.

Thanks Danziger for the authorization, The better P-51D-15 propeller texture has been added.

Everyone should look at this excellent stuff.

Do these integrated packs include the less weathered cockpit versions or default?

Hi everyone,

I just stumbled upon this gorgeous looking mod and wanted to give it a go, but unfortunately the link from the lead page of the thread just leads me to an open white page with nothing happening...any ideas?

 

Cheers*

Hi Oyster, amazing work overall, but what exactly changes if you adjust the alpha layer? Just out of curiosity :)

If I changed a larger range of textures without changing the Alpha layer, the old texture will be reflected under the light = error, the adjusted Alpha layer will have the correct reflection, and the reflection Intensity of the object can be adjusted , for example, the yellow pipeline on the right side of Bf-109s should not reflect super-glare reflections now.

These things may not be noticed in a tense air battle, but when you wait on the ground or in a horizontal flight with nothing to do, you will see it when you look around.

I have a problem to try install with JSGME, first install Bf109E7 without problem, but when I try to install the Yak7 mod give me the next message : Folder "Textures" has already been added by the "Bf109E7" mod. Enabling this mod *may* have adverse effects on your game...

I never had problems before.

And another question, where are the less weathering mod?

That's strange, is your 109 E-7 pack include Yak-7?
I suggest you uninstall all cockpits and use latest BOS/BOM/BOK/Bobp/Collector Pack.
less weathering mods are in the first post intergrated packs.

I think that the problem is that all airplanes mods have one folder, for example : Bf109E7/Texture instead of Bf109E7/data/graphics/Planes/Bf109E7/Textures.

I have created manually all folders and now I have no problems.

Thanks for your answers and for this mod, really now I can´t play this game without it

Hi @Oyster_KAI is it possible to bring in more details to the instruments in the wings from some planes like the both gauges in the YAK wings.

Could you elaborate on what kind of enhancement details you expect?

Sharper, not that fuzzy milky, like now, when trying reading the petrol level.

@Oyster_KAI

 

Thanks for the wonderful work on the cockpits but I think I may have found an issue in with the G-14 cockpit.

 

If you do not select the Fug-16ZY modification you do not see a hole in the instrument panel.

 

Modded version

This isn't an issue with this mod. It happens with the game in Mods Off mode too.

 

If you choose an official skin then the hole shows correctly.

If you use a custom skin (all the ones I have anyway) then the hole appears as this greenish color. I haven't been able to find the problem yet....

its strictly nesesary to use JSGME?

 

-S-

You can directly put it into the game folder, JSGME is not strictly necessary.

Yes Mods on only.

No you have to turn mods off for normal multiplayer servers since most don't allow mods.
