    Hi Guys!!!

    I need to prevent any "bad" speeches about how is and what is BoB:

    1. The pics from Bonus video tell you about our work several months ago. And there is in BoB video intro SPECIAL NOTICE that all videos, screens, etc are based on Pre-Alpha version!
    2. The map there is a test map that we'll probably will use as one of special fast loading online maps.
    3. The big cities there are not present on this map, just small. And trust me position and location of buildings will be right. Curently on this map as it is test map it is done using just one place from sattelite map and distributed all around the map with the various of sizes. There is completely new technology for the map textures which some of you will use in future to make own maps...
    4. Chirches are not present at the moment but we will have them.
    5. Cliffs - it is a sample of technology. The altitudes of the cliffs are not limited and are taken from sattelite map. on the working currnely real map of England there are huge cliffs with altitudes over 100 meters (I saw the point of 147 meters height on the map that making my guys.
    And they are not vertical (not really 90 degrees. Just some time close to 90). Real has some angle - inclined surface. It is done like it is on real satellite maps
    6. Textures are not final for everything there.
    7. Great various of trees and forests will be present only in final beta.
    8. There are not present yet selfshading and most importnat cross shades. It will be in beta only

    Conclusion.
    I recommend to look for the first screens of Il-2 (that all liked very much ) and then try to compare with release screens (that was done so much better) Here is the same thing.

    The pre-alpha is just to show how is going development in our "house"
    Trust me what you watch now in this BONUS video is sooooooo better than you saw anywhere in any flight sim before or currently
    And trust me we put so much in 3D engine that it will be in use step by step in time and in new versions-upgrades for a very long life. Probably longer than in Il-2 engine that still looks modern and more realistic from most points of view than from current competitors.

    When you'll this bonus DVD just look for the other details there... ground modeling, cockpits (there are present video of 11 already ready cockpits of flyable aircraft in so great detail and precise that you probably even didn't see in the best third party add-ons for MS FS...!)

    Ok, for the first look I think you got enough Enjoy please Il-2 1946 DVD now
