Well, it would be very nice to have kill markings on IL-2 FB fighter aircraft for campaigns / dynamic campaigns, so that the virtual pilots could see their "score" while taking a lok at their planes with the external view DURING a mission.

Is there a chance to include a feature like this in IL-2 FB or is this too hard to be achieved ingame ?

I know this is a minor feature, but it would be soo cool! :-)

I think many virtual pilots would like to have this feature ingame...

So please, development team members & fellow forum users, what do you say / think about it ?

The Messerschmitts do look very good with such an additional detail, don't they ? ( Well all fighter aircraft do look better with some kill-markings - in my opinion... )

( Please don't tell me that I could do the kill-marking paint-job by myself, I know that, but it's too much work to do this manually after every succesful mission..)


Regards, Sven

Sauhatz.... do a search for Paint victories. This is a program that will allow you to do just that. It will not work for online tho.

I downloaded the Paint Victories program, and it's a nice feature. It is around someplace, I am 100% positive I DL'd it from ORR.

But you don't NEED it to make kill markings in the single player campaign.

Open the skins folder and click on a plane. then select the skin you want to modify. Save it as another name, then use Paint to modify it. In your campaign, select custom skins, and choose your modified skin with the kill markings. it would be nice if FB did this for you, but let's face it, doing it the "hard" way, by yourself, takes about a minute and a half.

Howdy all,

This feature is included in B17II (fighter kills on the B17s). No reason why it couldn't be implemented into FB.

Cheers

Tom

It's also included in Strike Fighters Project One so it's doable.

Thanks a lot for the replies gentlemen! :-)

I'll use Paint victories ( avaiable here: http://sturmovik.bonusweb.cz/patche.html ) until (maybe) someday IL-2 FB includes this feature.

Have a nice day!

Greetings, Sven.

I agree this would be agreat feature. should be added in a new sim. Nose art would also be popular.

I agree, this would be a great addition to the game.
