Ok you've got me  :P
I was always bothered by IL2 not being more minecraft-like.
So that's what I'm working on.
Next I will extend the pilot walk-around functionality with the ability to dig into terrain.

OK, on a serious note - what I'm working on is re-implementing the effects system just like I did with the terrain.
Currently particles are displayed as blocks (no it's not supposed to stay like this :D).
The benefits will (hopefully) be better performance and the integration of the effects into the same shader framework as terrain and objects.
The effects are probably one of the bottlenecks of the engine because they are rendered using legacy drawing functions of OpenGL.
Using modern OpenGL functionality should at least theoretically improve performance.
The same goes for dynamic lighting btw - there is a lot of room for improvement.

Looking how many particles per effect I can handle.
The effect for the big smoke column has nParticles=8000.

Looks like you had done some color correction to the sky and far horizon?

Hello slibenli!

How do you think is there a possibility to add a bumpH textures to plane materials? I think that would greatly improve the feeling of the aircraft textures.

It works now, to some degree:

No, at least not recently.

Is it possible - yes. But not in the near future.
But instead of bumpH I would use normal maps.

You can try it out in https://gitlab.com/vrresto/il2ge/-/jobs/164924635/artifacts/download.

You'll need to set EnableEffects=1 in il2ge.ini.
