Don't stomp on me please I am just asking out of ignorence as I have never played yet. Some people have told me that the planes on il-2 all fly very simular to each other as planes on Aces High all fly with there own different traits according to the aircrafts history and specs, is this true or is there a noticable dif between planes like tha Yak-9, LA-7,& P-39 & so on and so on. Also does il-2 have weather variables and clouds and such, Aces High does not which I think is pretty sorry.

Yes of course the weather is changeable, from clear to snow.

In il2 planes are either overmodelled of undermodelled http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

im joking, this is the best sim out there, planes are all unique, every one of them, why havnt you bought it yet? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

There are notable differences in all aircraft in this series. There are even noticeable differences between sub-variants of particular aircraft. For example, you do not fly a Bf-109E the same way you do a Bf-109K.

Who ever told you that the planes in this series all fly the same are either idiots or ignorants.

I plan on it but I am at work at a very remote site in Alaska for Two weeks so I have to wait that long, in the meen time I am trying to learn as much as I can about it.

Is there a page or a post or something like AH has that gives specs and list of the aircrafts capabilities and armament options.

If you want to know what its like to be a fisherman, ask someone who fishes. IL2 is the sim people love to hate...no wait thats CFS3 (with good reason). AH is fine for what it is but it is not in the same league as what Oleg has given us. Every a/c has unique character...though I must admit that this is and has been a -109 simulator for me since the beginning. I've flown about every flyable at one time or another, but the Emil is my truest hearts desire http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif
Thank God Oleg is doing BoB next - an even better Emil http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

HIt the Nugget's guide in my sig. DL Hardballs viewer & NDs Guide... also check out the M4T links in my sig. If you are a simmer... then you will grow to love this one. It is very challenging. As for weather & clouds.... oh yeah... it isnt dynamic.. but it is there.

This sim comes with an astonishing collection of planes, from basically inter-war biplanes to high end fighters, even jet fighters, to bombers. As people here say, you can even feel the difference between different marks of the same plane (speed, drag, wing-loading, stalls etc), so I guess you can imagine the difference between, let's say a Gladiator and a heavily laden Ju-88.

In addition to weather, there are a lot of factors which you will discover affects a plane, like altitude, remaining fuel, remaining ammo or bombs, bullet holes, trim, supercharger, etc, etc. The interesting thing is that these factors affect all planes in a different way, depending on the planes other characteristics. You'll also discover that it's possible to land planes on a road, but very hard to land outside it and even ground effect. All in all this sim is packed full of goodies. I'm not saying it's perfect, but it has what a lot of what you are asking for.

Uh..oh... did you say "two weeks"?
Be careful, this term is a very special one on these forums. The infamous "Two weeks, be sure" means anything up to 1 year http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
It originates from the early days of development update, as an answer to the ever impatience crowd waiting for the next patch with the next new best aircraft.

Look around on http://www.mission4today.com (http://www.mission4today.com,), lots of goodies are stored there. There are aircraft comparison utilities for relative performance evaluations, maybe there are also armament information.

The IL2 Sturmovik series is the Benchmark of flight sims.
Normalising it, give IL2 the value = 1.
Everything else is below a value = 0.5

If you've no flying experience it's hard to start with. Don't be afraid to ask the silliest questions... we need more cannon fod.. umm.. err.. eager students http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.
Once you get into it, you'll never look back.

Big differences in how they land and take off as well.
Bigger diff than how they fly to me- you can stall any of them if you're too heavy handed
Count your blessings if your first oobicherry is 1946. The rest of us have had to RE-learn how to fly each plane everytime a patch comes out.

Whoever told you that the airplanes in IL2 all fly the same was correct! To raise the nose you pull on the stick, to lower it, push. etc etc... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Not exactly. The game it's self has a gallery of most of the planes built into it with notes and specifications.

Then there's a couple of free to download programs, such as Hardball's aircraft viewer which give you the chance to not only display all the sort of stats the AH shows; but to compare aircraft directly with each other.
