To the team involved in IL-2:FB and BoB development.


I would like to see the in-game nation markings on the aircraft made semi-transparent. What I mean is that the Russian stars, the German crosses, the British roundels etc would not cover the panel lines completely, but instead let these shine through in a faded way. The markings would look less shiny, but still be visible if they were semi-transparent, and I believe the planes would look more realistic this way. (I might not be able to "manufacture" a picture, but I'll try, maybe someone else can do it for me...?)

I know this might not be possible to achieve for IL-2:FB or the Ace Expansion, but please consider it for the next expansion or sim (BoB). Thank you for making this excellent sim, and for your ongoing work with it.

Or we could do what we already do with the American planes - put the markings on the skins.

My big markings beef is with the generic US markings. The points of the star should NOT go beyond the circumference of the roundel.

See my avatar for reference....

Yeah I've noticed that as well...kind of annoying. Probably should go to the painted on markings. Would look better for virtually all.

Anyone else who find this to be a decent idea? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

I would like to see more countries represented!!

Forgotten Battles is not an Estern Front Sim as original IL-2, so, why not more countries as Brasil, Mexico and others
