Team Fusion show off TrueSky for IL-2 Cliffs of Dover series

A significant visual update that Team Fusion has been working on for the IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover series (including Desert Wings) is making significant progress as we have a new video showcasing their forthcoming TrueSky update.

Fly the TrueSky

Offered by a third party developer, TrueSky has been used in a variety of simulations and games including Ace Combat 7 which made ample use of the technology. Now its coming to Cliffs of Dover / Desert Wings.

The effect is similar to the updates we’ve seen for DCS World and the IL-2 Great Battles Series with much more impressive cloud formations over a wider area. A combat video gives us our best look yet at the technology in motion.

    Ah, this is such a tease. I’m holding out for the VR release (my whole flight setup doesn’t have a monitor in front of it, so it’s kind of required now). Here’s hoping we get some VR news soon.

      You might really enjoy yourself then, as I have since I got it. It has it’s issues and can be a bit clunky at times, but you all forget that when you’re in a fight and the AI is making you forget it’s AI.

      It’s miles better than the already good modded IL-2 1946 AI. It can properly fight energy tactics, even in fighters were you wouldn’t expect it. I recently had an AI CR. 42 use energy tactics against me in a Gladiator! And the mothertrucker did perfectly counter an aggressive vertical move by me that had me on the backfoot for the next few minutes.
      Basically I went hard nose down to cut across his circle and he just went “Ok, guess I’m gonna go up! Arrividerci, sucker!” He went high and then grew his energy advantage, until he could just do diving boom and zoom attacks on me.

      Same with a Hurricane MK. II against me in a 109 E-7, yeah you have a slight advantage in the 109 E-7 over the Mk. II but not by much, and the AI agressively maneuvered to try and take my energy advantage away. Got him in the end, but it was a much more challenging fight than expected.

      Nevermind the tons of attacks on Stukas, where the Pilot thought: “Oh you want to shoot me down? Let me spoil your shot and unmask my rear gunner!” 😉
