IL2:BoS IL2:BoS - See into the Distance

Recommended Posts


This tweek is very effective at improving the level of detail (LOD) in the distance making the whole game more realistic:

Navigate to your BOS graphics folder.

Default should be: C:\Program Files\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\graphics\

Steam version should be: C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\graphics\

Find and open the file called terrain.ini with Notepad. It should only contain a few lines of text like below:

PixelSize=50 //meters







The last line "texlod=1024,16" is what's causing the blurring, change it to: texlod=2048,8

And your are set! Just start the game as usual. If you are running at a higher resolution like 1440p or maybe even 4K you could just change all lines to texlod=4096,8 and get the full resolution like on the pic above but that might cause annoying texture shimmering at low altitude unless you are playing at a very low FOV/Zoom.

The original thread is here:


This has greatly improved the visuals in my game. It should be noted that it doesn't change the range at which the like of trees are drawn. so there will still be a line across forests where the image changes between a texture and drawn trees.
