Hvala doktore, daj boze, daj boze
That photo above is over saturated and tends to blue. I assume thanks to the camera, atmospheric and aerosol refraction is not so visible from such low altitude and that angle.
I wanted to make one "overall" realistic look. There is possibility that it lacks yellow tone. But adding yellow to all texture would be mistake because in that way you increase overall green in IL2. Solution can be adding yellow in just some part of the texture (maybe I will do that).
But I made textures according to personal experience, I live there
, so as far as I'm concern, and looking that terrain every day, sometimes from the air, that is the closest that I could do.
Fact is that there is no bright green-green as in England green, also there is no so saturated yellow tones, it gets yellowish and drab towards autumn, but not the same tones as in Germany for instance. Green is more dark-green.
But, also the fact is that all of us have different monitors with different settings, it is normal to see it differently. Just go to the store when there is many monitors or TV sets working next to each other, and you will see many differences.
Fact is that we are already accustomed to the IL2 maps, which I think are too bright and too saturated, especially in green tones (so called Ukrainian green
) If you have a chance to fly above Europe, you will probably notice that ground is much darker, contrasted and less color saturated than in IL2. I wanted to make something like that.
The beauty with the modding is that everyone can have it according to his own likings, I will put Uufflakke's version in the first post also.
Here is some videos from youtube that in my opinion represrent the ground more or less corectly.
Taken at April 5th last year, notice the brightens of the ground, even it is 2:40pm.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwaB705FxWg&feature=related
August, not so good quality, but enough to show lack of deep yellow-green.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHTPL9rdMOQ&feature=related
This one with trike shows the sumer the best in my opinion. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cx6vPVi7350
Also from the ground.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQtGxX6JuO0&feature=related
Lake Zaovine on Mountain Tara. Notice how trees are dark, from some distance it looks dark in real too (real pacific island-ish
Many nice pictures here:http://www.tara-planina.com/foto_albumi.html
Few of mine, various times of days, various dates and various cameras (which is the most important because color distortions)
Overall impression of the nature is that greenery is bluish-silverish-light green in the spring, which goes more olive-drab-dark green through the sumer, then yellow and red in the autumn, but never deep yellow.
Again, there is no technical possibility that we all see the same. It depends of many factors. Anyone else's "vision" is just as valid as mine, so its good that everyone can have his own version

I'm glad that's solved now.
