Graphics

Q: What will be the main changes to graphics?

A: Simply graphics is completely new.  We use new 3D engine.

Q: What will be the changes to the skyscape in BoB? How many cloud levels can there be? How many types of cloud?

A: I won’t answer this question until you will see the BoB alpha based trailer from DVD bonus of IL-2 Sturmovik 1946.

Q: Will there be smoke/steam/fire in the cockpit if you are hit?

A: Probably.

Q: Will the damage model for buildings and ships improve? Not only graphically, but in terms of damaged rudder, gun positions, etc.?

A: Yes. In both cases. Cant say about ship rudder damage, I would say that the main term in damage of the ship now is physics.

Q: Will there be a weapon track camera (e.g. to follow a bomb down to the target)?

A: Probably.

Q: Will there be better pilot animation? For example, getting out of cockpit at mission end?

A: Can’t answer right now. We are making skeleton animation in general, but how it will be implemented in final only time will show this.

Q: At present the pilot figure is a bit too big. Will that change?

A: This is Russian big guy of the end of 20th century.  We will look for the middle size of WWII time.

Skinners

Q: Will it be possible to alter the default pilot skins?

A: Probably.

Q: Will it be possible to skin ground objects including parked aircraft?

A: Probably.

Q: Will skin size increase to 2048×2048?

A: Yes.

Q: Will skinners be able to affect other factors, such as shaders/luminance for bare metal skins?

A: Probably. But this will be released only in separate special tools after some time of BoB release.

Q: What program will be required for 3rd Party 3D modelers?

A: 3D Max for models and some good painting program for textures.
