The IL2 FB Full Mission Creator is absolutely one of the best features of this game.

However, there is one thing that is lacking, which would really help the mission writer to create historicaly accurate, fair, and interesting missions.

We need to be able to enforce weapon selection.

Example: I write a mission where 109G6's are patrolling over a battlefield, and they spot a flight of IL2's escorted by Yak1b's. In testing the mission, I have decided that since such a small percentage of 109G6's had 30mm Mk108's I will use the default loading, and put only a few IL2's so that the mission is winnable by the Blue side.

Unfortunately, the Blue pilots see in the briefing that they will be attacking IL2's and they all take wingpods and Mk108's. IL2 guys don't have a chance.

Same thing when Red side grabs rockets cause they know they are going to see some Stukas or He111's.

I have talked to several people who would like to see weapons selection 'not' changeable in coop missions, or that the host can select whether or not he wants pilots to have weapon selection.

Thank you.

I thought the idea was you selected the weapons in the object viewer? And if you write coop missions and play online you deserve everything you get lol
