Thanks.
IL-2 1946 certainly... i used it with the AAA unified installer and a range of other mods, but from the image you can see:

sky textures: Bender Sky V3 - Original
clouds: flushys cloudmod v2; Bender's Ultimate Environment (they look terrific)
ground textures: Flushys Bumpification Mod Beta 1; probably some custom campaign map
propeller: Propeller Mod V2.0
skin: can't recall, huge amount to chose from

my complete install tree was according to my kept record:

BASIC
il2_1946_408m
AAA
patch
language & ranks fix
conf.ini (edited for maxed settings)
CAMPAIGNS
Biggin Hill
BOBHurricaneSeason
UTWR
SINGLE MODS
2ch_Firev2
Flushys_Bumpification_Mod
Flushy's cloud mod v2
Eng Sound Mod (SFX_9.3)
IL2_6DOF_Mod_v07_MOUSE
CERT_AI
C47 With Cockpit
Battle Sounds Mod v2 [groud attack]
vp_treetextures3
Bender Sky V3 - Original
V2 Guncam New Fire 3D Ultimate Smokes
3rdeye_Weapon_Effects
Spitfire MKI & open canopy
Yak-7_9 Cockpits Mangas
Propeller-Mod-V2.0


this is the advantage of being a methodical hard drive organizer: answer's from the past are always few seconds away.

ah well... good old IL-2 times i abandoned it 4 years before CLoD, believing the then called Storm of War: Battle of Britain (as it should have been afaik) would come much sooner. well i am a better pilot now, and still rather average, but improving along the way. never really looked back on 1946, but some fun i had on 'skies of fire/valour', 'zeke vs wildcat', 'spit vs 109'...

please don't shred this for off topic

and rebuilding the gfx engine is what will give the 50% improvement in frame rates, the sequence of events shows the logic

You seem quite optimistic about peoples ability to analise and understand information. We`ve been getting frequent updates for few months now and substantial info. However, still a lot of people seem to think that with the beginning of BoM works the got CloD abandoned. Also, they strangely think that upon the BoM release day, the original Battle of Britain related content will dissapear from their hard drives.

Mod Edit: Please use the PM function to address a specific member. Let's not open a technical discussion in the middle of the update thread. Thank you.
You are quite likely right about that, but with the impending graphics and sound changes, I will just remain patient and hope that with the length of time the patch has taken that they nail it this time, I guess they realise that they have to get it pretty well right this time, good luck to them, will be great if all the improvements come off.

They take as long to open as it does to get the patch released.

The most important part to the update was this sentence.

"We’re not working on an externally set schedule, so we can sit down and do things right rather than rushing them out to meet a deadline."

This suggests that the bean counters are now happy and aren't going to force anymore unfinished work out the door, like they did with the initial release. At least for the moment.

Keep the faith, most of us here understand the process.

S!

Question. The patch is supposed to fix the graphics engine and it's biggest bugs like poor performance, no proper CrossFire/SLI support etc. Now as it seems devs have nailed a lot of bugs and brings up my question: Have they worked in collaboration with AMD/nVidia for proper drivers/profiles/whatever to give us the best experience? Luthier did mention in a post not so long time ago that they are in contact with both brands locally. Would be nice to know

Also, I remember Luthier talking about Direct X 11 about a year ago. How is that coming along? I'm sure everyone would love to know if it's still on the table given the typical performance increase over DX10 and the possibility of DX11 features not available in the sim's current state.
The patch will be the same graphics engine as BOM, so it will be DX11, theres no way that Luthier would spend all this time on the patch for it to be in DX10. Like Luthier said just after release DX11 was thier first and major priority, this is why its taken so long.

I dont know about AMD, but Luthier stated many months ago that SLI was fixed and a profile would be included in the next Nvidia driver. There have been many driver releases since but no profile as been found to date.
