In Ferdinand tank its possible to speed up rotation of the commander and gunner rear/side periscope if you press key to rotate to the other side while holding  the previous one.

 

Press Rshift + key to rotate to the left  and now press key to rotate to the right (still hold key to the left) and the speed of the rotation is rapidly increased.

 

I dont know if its bug or feature.

Brief description: Pixelation of the exterior model
Detailed description, conditions: It is still an AMD driver problem. (I didn't find this particular case here on the fast track, so I posted it here.)  If you select the MSAA option, there are pixels flickering on the aircraft surface in the exterior view. There is also a "broken" shadow on this side from time to time. In the assets you find the original post in the 4.006 thread for the issue with some pictures.

After the update I have some of the roads and railways hovering ~50m above the ground when playing singleplayer missions (generated by PWCG). It's difficult to see but it happened on the Moscow map in summer and winter.

@6FG_Big_Al, please, take a screenshot of the graphics settings in the game, and the second question is, did you reset the graphics settings in the driver to default?

Hi @-DED-Rapidus, to answer your question yes the settings of the driver are default. Even when I did a small mistake. (The current version of the driver is: 20.7.1)   The ingame settings are under the spoiler.

If there is anything else I can do or test, don't hesitate to ask me :)

There was an elevation correction on the map of Moscow, so wait for the PCWG fix.

I can see same issue on Moscow map. Only some roads, not all of them.

Quick mission, no mods.

Seems a mod for another map was causing this in my case. I've tested it the vanilla game now and didn't see any issue anymore.

@vonGraf, or not enough video memory )

 

In my case I had to disable my Kuban and Bodenplatte map mod to get the Moscow map working correctly again. I could even enable all my other mods again, it's all good now in vanilla singleplayer and PWCG missions. But thanks for your tips.

I wasn't aware that a mod for the i.e. Kuban map can affect the Moscow map too. Ok, learnt something new about the game, that's good as well.

My graphic card has 8 GB that should be enough; IL2 (+Win10) consumes 4 - 6 GB depending on the settings.

there is sometimes this strange smoke what I at first thought its a new graphic effect.

I dont know if its related to the endless firing bug and the flash from the gun its not visible.

Most likely the sticking effect gunsmoke, the t-34 was hit at the time of the shot, when there was a withdrawal of gunpowder gases from the tower.

Hi Rapidus,

 

I was hit badly in PzIV and survived, tank started to burn, commander and loader dead.

Main gun damaged, engine damaged, fuel leak and more.

Fire was extinguished and I was able to drive.

Survived another shot. Started to fire again at KV1 (unfortunately confused the right one and I was firing at the already knocked out :)).

Excellent experience to survive some shots with internal damage and wounded/killed crew!

Excellent stuff, this I want to see more in every tank please!!!

 

Anyway I wanted to carefully get close, but ran out of fuel.

I press the eject button and right after the driver get out, tank started to burn and before the gunner left out tank exploded.

Is it a bug or some kind of self destruct feature?

 

and you can see at the 3rd screenshot that the duplicit explosion bug is there too.

Im seeing this duplicit explosion bug extremely often

 

in video its at cca 12:10 time

@Voidhunger, the problem is known ) this is not a feature unfortunately. You turned on the evacuation animation, but at this moment there was an explosion, since everyone in the crew was killed, the camera took a neutral (initial) position of the driver's seat.



and there's that damn double explosion again....

Hi,

first, thanks for your time!

 

Brief description:

As you can see at my pictures, I got this bad graphic issues. I got this issues for about 2 weeks now. The issue doesn´t came from the gpu, because I already tested a second one and it got the same issue.  I also tested all the graphic settings to solve this problem, but only  FXAA makes a little difference. With FXAA the issue is a bit smaller.


Detailed description, conditions:

First everything looks fine and after less then a minute the clouds, sky and horizon changes with glimmer, flicker and waves.


Your PC config data (OS, drivers, specific software):

Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit 18363, AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, 32 RAM, RTX 2070 Super - Samsung 2560 x 1440 (32bit) (144hz)

 

Maybe someone of you solved that problem. Thanks in advance!

Thanks, regards,

Brief description: Too short LOD distance for the high-res buildings
Detailed description, conditions: Since 4.009, the LOD distance of the high-res buildings seems to have been changed to a *much* too close distance (see screenshot). This results in the buildings looking quite ugly up close. The LOD distance seems to be calculated from the center of the building group instead of for each individual building; since some buildings groups are quite large, the effect can be quite clear and ugly. The problem is especially apparent on the semi-destroyed buildings, as the roof/walls of the lower-LOD models are generally a single quad. I didn't notice this problem before 4.009.

What map are you using in your case (screenshot)? All maps but the Prokhorovka map have lower detailed buildings.

Brief description: A-20 British gunner model
Detailed description, conditions: Although not explicitly mentioned in the 4.006 changelog as one of the planes with a pilot model that depends on the assigned nationality, the A-20 pilot and observer do change their model if they're set to GB. However, the tail gunner still uses the Soviet model.

Thank you, we fixed this problem, the next update will fix it(we will deal with Venlo airfield later.).

I've provided a Minimal Working Example mission (basically one (damaged) house and a tank) as well as a track recording to illustrate the problem.

Although there's only one building in the mission, the problem exists with all high-res buildings as far as I can tell (although it is more visible on some).

 

I've pinpointed the problem to the FOV settings that are quite wide for the tank commander position. The effect can be seen in the screenshots below (I took just the center part of the screen):

badlod_4.png.ef42d8f2fbb5fb1a946eb1ed7e454fe8.png

Note how in the upper left screenshot the building is basically invisible from a relatively short distance due to the wrong LOD being used at the (default for the Pz.IV commander) FOV of 92 degrees! If I decrease the FOV to 88 degrees, the building does suddenly show up.

 

As stated, my graphics settings are Ultra with 4k textures and distant buildings. My resolution is 1920x1080.

Brief description: British and German WW1 tanks don't fire their MGs at planes,  WW1 tanks also can not crush every barbed wire model used on the frontline of the Arras map. 

 

Deatailed description: British and German WW1 tanks don't fire their MGs at planes, even if you activate air targets in the attack area MCU. They also seem to only use their MGs when the attack area MCU is set to attack ground. WW1 tanks also can not crush every barbed wire model used on the frontline on the Arras map. The tanks will roll over the wire, which makes it burn and then get stuck on it.

In both cases we need your missions that have a problem.
