Salute All !

Today I have five new screenshots for you showing the new clouds in Forgotten Battles and the reflection detail in the water.

Just click on each image for a larger version. I'm sure you can work out which planes they are. :-)

More coming soon!

Well for Me it would. Until Fb is out./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
Now I got a pbl, why waist lots of bucks for a game that probably will only play for a few months at most(worst scenario is Fb released on time, than no Cfs3, lol)?
Now seriously, I think that unfortunatly in My country, Portugal, Msn Cfs3 will be realeased at same time as in the all world, and Fb probably only via internet I will be able to buy it,. Thats what trully makes Me mad, knowing that ppl will be playing Fb and I'll stuck with Cfs3.
No doubt that Fb will put again a new standard in Fighter simms, and game overall. So sad that Msn dint learn ship!

Cool, just take a look at the water reflections!!! Can this be done with a GF2?

3 And why beholdest thou the mote
that is in thy brother's eye, but
considerest not the beam that is
in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy
brother, Let me pull out the mote
out of thine eye; and, behold, a
beam [is] in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out
the beam out of thine own eye; and
then shalt thou see clearly to cast
out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

The screenshots look great! I just wonder if such clear reflections are likely on such large surfaces of water. If windspeed is 0 I guess it's possible, but if there is some wind there will be ripples/waves on the water which will destroy any reflections. Are there different water effects for different kinds of weather?

I can live with it in any case cause it looks very nice.

It is done with the help of professional photograph We used his photos to model it. However with different weather and big waves it shouldn't be so sharp, I gree with your notice. But.... we are not gots.... somethiong should go currently with compromisses /i/smilies/16x16_robot-happy.gif .

Cartrix,

What can I say, these graphics are incredible! One question I do have concerns the ability of FB to also create a dynamic campaign for the original IL-2 missions and campaigns? Will the FB "engine" do this and will it provide all these wonderful clouds, water, etc. in the missions flown over the eastern front as well?

I simply can't wait until February when FB will be released or sooner, if possible! In the meantime I continue to enjoy IL-2. In fact I have CFS-2 and played it the other day and it simply doesn't compare!!!! I've read a great deal lately about CFS-3; however, examining the screenshots and some of the reviews, I'm not sure CFS-3 has come up to the level of the bar established by IL-2. You guys are to be congradulated for developing and continuing to improve the best PC flight simulator around - bar none.

Please, keep up the good work!

Bill

Absolutely beautiful graphics. The water is stunning.

I am so glad I have already upgraded to a GF4.

Oleg,

Sir, how may I ask to be part of your beta group? Seeing what you've created makes me want to beg for beta membership, however, I won't go there. Maybe I can pay to be on the beta ?

If it is within you to allow me a beta seat, please do so. I will do my best to QA/QC the WIP.

Salute! and MOST EXCELLENT SIMULATION!!

Does this mean the fw189 will be flyable? Or am i assuming too much?

Gorgeous screen shots...

One question, will the problem of the "midnight sun" be fixed in FB? Of course I am talking about that glow on the horizon that exists at all hours of the night.

I rather hoped bridges and ships are going to be first!!

Flying under a bridge and attacking a ship is a more frequent accurance than seeing a plane in the water. It would be nice though. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Great shots as usual! Thanks Oleg. But what system do you recommend to run FB on? I know I'm behind the curve. I just don't know how far.
As for you ***wipes that are "shooting down" CFS3, read the reviews of the gold release. It is worthy. I intend to buy it. I know it will run on my system, and I won't go crying to Oleg to make a sim about the western air battles(but Oleg, please do the Korean war!!). There is room on my hard drive for both!
Anti-CFS3 Clowns to the back of the line! Hahahahahahaahahahahaahahhaa!!
That is what I have to say for now.

PS Oleg, pardon my drooling on these screen shots.

Very nice water,
Unfortunately someone earlier asked if it would look like this with a Gforce 2, Mmm, don't think so. My guess it will look like this on a Gforce 3, but slow, and only on upper end Gforce 4 will will it look like this and be fluid.

Only my thoughts

P.S. This is the second best water I've seen on a computer game this year, first place goes to Morrowind (just) check it out.

I found this in a cfs3 review........lmao

Even a wounded jug is dangerous. On my next pass I hit something vital (a bomb?) in the Ju I targeted and it exploded into burning shards. It's a wonderful thing to see an aircraft come apart in CFS 3. It will impress even the accomplished IL-2 veterans in the crowd.

I think there are close ...but not close enough.

Midnight sun... hmm... well, it might seem excessive, but on the other hand - it's quite realistic for many of the maps. Rather than NOT having this in FB, I actually look forward to Piter's famous "White Nights", where the sun is below the horizon for maybe an hour at all, barely. No midnight sun exists in Kuban and Crimea, otherwise... Russia still is a northern country, mind you.

I realize that far enough north there can be very long days (but also very long nights). Still, it would be nice to be able to have a true night, at whatever the required time/season.

Sorry but, I don't understand.
I happen to fly at night with a full moon and a lot of light (snow cover), but I also happened to fly in complete darkness in IL-2, with no moon...
So, what's wrong?

Also, you are really spoiling us! Lets hope your next piece will be even better! No chances Bill Gates! And one last thing: What configuration will i need to run those FBs as smooth as it has to?

ooh wow! did you see those rugged mountains? and the way they "wave"to their summit, thats fingerlickinggood work!

I havent seen any better mountains, except for real (pyrenees are my favorites) and photos

I showed me sister the picture of the water, she said it was a photo. ;-)

Will a gf3 card handle this?

Hello All,

Is it just me, or is that the enclosed dorsal gun of the He111H-11 in the 4th shot. To date I'd thioought we'd only get the He111H-3 and He111H-6...will this one be flyable??
