hi,
question to the developer if there is something in the pipeline for future addons with higher image quality of textures ?
together with new campaignes I would pay for more sophisticated image design.
Is there any wish from the community ?



here some profsim pics:

I would think that any full fledged sequel to IL2 and FB would have higher detail but the big thing about these is that they are satelite generated maps...and no such maps existed during World War II. What FB and IL2 have are very very good maps and some of those images aren't as good looking as what FB does to be honest (sure the detail is higher, but the actual quality is lower).

Those images look awful /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Sure, from 10,000ft thats great detail, but in order to get quality like that all the way down to the deck, you'd need some serious texture resolutions, and really, I, personally, am not interested in losing FPS because the ground looks pretty.

The ground in FB looks fine as it is, sure I think a little bit more detail around Rivers and what not would be nice, but those flat satelite terrain images look really bad, imo /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

hi,
what about LockOn quality ...
is there a way that the IL2/FB engine could render such ground textures...in future addons ..?
