I've just seen a few pictures of the Il-2 game in a totally different environment. Bf-109 over the sands od Sahara! Wow! How is this possible?? Are there any mods on add-ons I don't know about that expand or alter the original game???

Cheers!!

It's just a map, north africa. It has been there for a long time. And yes, there has been a lot of addons.

Yes there are maps that you don't see in the usual offline missions/campaigns. I started flying online about a year ago and one of the nice things is that you get to see these maps that you usually don't get a chance to fly on ie. one with the big mountains.


You don't need to know much about mission building to fly on all of the maps, look for a quick tutorial at Airwarfare. You only need to put one aircraft on a map and then you can go explore (as I found out after getting Sturmo'46).

Cheers Guys!!!
I'm @ work at the moment (as You can see ;P) but as soon as I'm home I'll get in my Bf-109 and check all that out!

Thanks a lot for opening my eyes! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

PS. Oh, and what interesting add-ons (altering gameplay, graphics, everything http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif) would You recommend?

Thanks!

if you have 46 and that patched up to 4.071 then you will be up to date in terms of aircraft, maps etc.

check out airwarfare.com for some neat utilities and if you post your system specs (prob best on technical support forum) then people will be able to offer you some handy hints on optimising your graphic settings.

This quick tutorial helped me put a few aircraft onto one of the new maps. It's really easy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif:

Re: add-ons. Try the pluswave ad-ons, they have very dtailed maps with many buidings on the airfiels etc. so you might need a good graphics card to get the best out of them. I highly recommend them:

Look at the many screenshots of the different add-ons on the site:
