I know this is an old issue but.... when I last played about a year ago it wasn't that bad.

Now I can barely go two games in a row without some ground targets not showing up (you can identify them with naked eyes and destroy them nonetheless, though.

 

And about one in 20 games I'll see a plane with target marker but no aircraft model.

Really annoying when there is an Event that relies on you being able to tell which targets have buildings in when bombing from high altitude...

Same issue with ground targets not showing up when attacking.  Have had them light up after a partially enemy attacked section and you turn it back to neutral, then some may light back up to let you know which ones they are.

Not only are they not marked on the map, the red firing circle for the AA gun also does not show up, which means you may think you are in a safe zone to not get hit by AA but are still getting hammered.  Once they go from being neutral targets, they seem to all show up correctly.

Yea, it's a fairly old bug that keeps showing its head more often than not. Like vcharng said, you can still identify the buildings by sight if you know how they look I have no idea if there's any other workaround to the problem though :sceptic:


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

It is really annoying when cloud cover makes it hard to see targets. :unsure:

The lack of ground target markers was worse this weekend than I've ever experienced

Or when a "friendly" bomber bombs the sh*t out of the target area, creating huge fireballs to block your vision.

You are supposed to help them by taking out what's left quickly, but it's not easy when you can't see a thing.

Still a big annoyance.  Yesterday the problem had spread from ground targets without markers to aircraft which still had labels but no longer had "health bars".
