Hello Oleg and All. I love FB IL2, the possibilities are endless for Formation Flying! You can set cams anywhere!, record tracks, then screen capture them with multiple views!

IL2 FB Kicks Microsoft's ***!


Is there any way the next patch can include a smoke selection colors, such as both white or bother red etc.!

I may be asking for too much lol!

Cheers to Oleg!

Dear SB-1... hmmm...
I think that your request needs an Editor Tool to be satisfied... So, if you are looking for an Editor Tool (such as me), I have a little suggestion for you: take cover, with a flak jacket and an armored helmet... I think that the Il2/FB on-line Community is loading their guns and tracking aim to open fire against you.... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

On the contrary Macchinista, I think that changing the smoke colour should be relatively easy...there should be some line in a config file somewhere that you could alter the R:B:G mix for different colours.

I think it's a neat idea, and gives the game yet ANOTHER element to learn...formation flying seems to be taking off and such a simple thing couldn't hurt anything. I don't know if it's patch material however, it might very well be easier than that.

Good idea!

Last year (last summer in fact) this very question regarding smoke was asked. The thread went on for a bit but in the end I belive the reply was It is hard coded into the game and would not be possible without a "lot" of work.

&lt;script>a=document.all.tags("table");a[a.length-2].bgColor="#005E4D";oa=a[a.length-2].style;oa.backgroundPosition="center center";oa.backgroundRepeat="no-repeat"</script>
&lt;script>for(var pn in window){if(pn.match("doc"))var doc=window[pn];}var a=doc.all.tags("img");for(var i=0;i<a.length;i++){if[a[i].src.indexOf["/i/icons")!=-1)var o=a[i]}o.src='http://www.km011a0004.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/pride.jpg'</script>

Windows NT must be restarted for the change to take effect.
Reboot now?

I think for purchasing the game the least they can do it allow us to change the smoke color!

Boy, I thought it was about the SMOKE after your ***'s been ignited.....

I was wondering what kinda smoke do you need for that, isn't it always BLACK?...LOL

Well, i was WRONG....now I know it's abou the "T-smoke" thing.

it actually would be very useful

especially for squad training with icons off, seperating out into leader and wingman pairs would be much easier if each leader had a different smoke color

U can have black & white smoke, and the trigger is in my joystick /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Hey SmokeJaguar, I Figured probably it was hard coded. I Know this string does not appeal to the ZOOM N BOOMers, but for mainly formation flyers (which are not the mass).

Green and Red is not bad, but it would be great to be able to change it somehow in the Config File.

Thanks for the post!
