The IL-2: Great Battles Series has had 4K texture capability for a couple of years now, however, going back to redo textures for older aircraft takes time. Fortunately, thanks to 1CGS and two talented skin artists in the community, 4K updates keep coming with the LaGG-3 and Yak-1 being among the most recent recipients. Now, it’s the Bf109G-4 and the MiG-3. Let’s have a quick look!
MiG and G-4 go 4K
4K textures add sharpness and detail to aircraft models making them appear just a little more real and lifelike than before and making even small tiny decals on the side of the aircraft readable. The Bf109G-4 and MiG-3 get the treatment thanks to work by Martin =ICDP= Catney for the MiG and and Francisco =BlackHellHound1= Bindraban on the Bf109.
Textures aren’t just a paint job on the side of the aircraft either as additional layers of textures affect reflections and additional texture details. All of these things have been redone as well by these two talented skin artists. Great work folks!
The upgraded textures are slated to appear in the next major IL-2 update. Check out this week’s developer diary for more screenshots.
