IL-2 Enhanced Modpack for Online and Offline Play



This modpack has been created to address a number of the current shortcomings in IL-2 Sturmovik: Great Battles, particularly with the damage and ballistics modeling, but also navigation lights and tracers which can be seen from miles away even in broad daylight. This modpack is in essence a tested collection of many individual mods made by community members with small additional tweaks of my own in some cases. It has been created with the idea for an invitation only multiplayer server in view, but works even better offline.
 
This release is a work-in-progress and is a proof-of-concept. We are looking for feedback and are also happy to tweak the modpack as a result of your input.

Update 9/1/21:

This modpack is now going to be offered in one modular version going forward with various options included as jsgme add-ons. I have uploaded a new version of the pack with additional mods and bugfixes, including the navlights which were brought to my attention by @curiouslysophie. The rendering issue with the trees on winter maps still remains for now until one of us can get with @rowdyb00tto remedy this.

 

It has come to my attention that reshade fails to deactivate from the pack when using jsgme. If you wish to remove it from the pack/game for online play on servers that do not allow it like FVP or CB, simply delete the following folders and files from bin/game:

-reshade-shaders
-dxgi.dll
-reshade.cfg
-reshadePreset.cfg

I have also had to delete d3dx.dll, d3d11.dll, and d3d11.log as well to get my game to work after using the mod. I will say that you can technically just delete the entire contents of the bin/game folder with the exception of the game and launcher executables (.exe) because the launcher client will simply re-download them from the main IL-2 server.

For now, Fholger's Universal VR shader will remain included in the pack because it greatly improves clarity and reduces ghosting in VR. While the vr enhancements are included in the pack by default, they can be disabled for flatscreen users by simply deleting the contents of the bin/game folder within IL-2 Enhanced before activation via jsgme. The bin/game folder in the pack is where the universal vr shader, fsr, and vrem are located (as well as LizLemon's moon shader fix).

Installation
1. Download and install jsgme to create "MODS" folder.
2. Download files, extract, and place in mods folder.
3. Run jsgme and activate modpack into game.

 

This release is as has been said, a work-in-progress and will hopefully be refined, added to, and improved upon by fellow community members. I'm sure there will be patches to follow and other members begin using and testing this pack rigorously.

 

Cheers,
