I love it. Make my search for targets much much easier than in "summer" mode. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Also I find Finland map very nice with ice Earth skin on.

Well, as someone who lives covered in ice six months of every year, I think it's very good. Gives the right feel.

Love the Murmansk map with the half-snow covered trees. Very nice.

I always fly at perfect settings, I just keep the plane count low to get good FPS. Would rather have small fights with excellent graphics.

As someone who lives ice bound six months of every year, I think the winter terrain, especially the Murmansk map, is very good. Gives the fight feel.

I always fly with perfect settings on my AMD64-3000/9800Pro. I think the winter terrain looks better with perfect settings, but maybe it's just an illusion. I keep the battles fairly small to get fluid FPS with all the settings maxed in game, and 4XAA and 6XAF, at 1024x768. Sometimes I fly at 6XAA and 16XAF, but then it's usually 1 on 1 dogfights otherwise things slow down real fast. Mind you, the sim looks excellent at those settings. Better at 1600x1200, but with those settings and that res, it slows down very, very, veeeeery fast. pretty much just sightseeing flights.

(When I want HUGE battles, I load up original IL2 and fill the sky with planes. Great fun, great FPS, and the graphics are still very nice.)

Sun reflection off the ice on rivers and lakes could be better, but other than that, I like the winter maps.

Ice Rules

Before PF, the FB Ice shined <span class="ev_code_yellow">Gold</span> in the setting sun. Now it doesn't. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif I'll have to look again.
