Original post:


Hi!

I would like to announce my WIP project that I have been working on for some months now.
It started with some simple hacks to allow using custom shaders.
Since then it has evolved quite a bit to basically replace the terrain rendering done by the IL-2 engine.
Which means that now you can have a far greater terrain rendering distance.
I will probably go into further technicalities in a later post - for now some screenshots :)

Looks nice.
Binary edit of il2_core.dll?
How is the FPS impact?

Stock vs modded comparison images would definitively help visualizing differences and appreciate the effort... I don't normally fly that high but the captures look really good!

il2_core.dll is left untouched.
I'm intercepting OpenGL calls - more or less like the Morrowind Graphics Extender (https://www.nexusmods.com/morrowind/mods/5535) is doing.

The frame rate isn't to my liking yet (ca. 15 FPS in Narvik), but there is still room for optimisation - also currently I'm using an intel GPU  ;)

Unmodded I think in screenshot #2 the ground wouldn't even be visible.

Edit: ok I was wrong - here it is with LandGeom=3

Alright, nice.
Same approach like Reshade does.
Fine, fine 8)
