I was playing online and there are games that have amazing scenarios, with high mountains, deserts, woods, the sea,... And i was wondering: why when playing a single player game (a quick mission builder for ejample) i can just select between 5 scenarios, much of them very simple? The scenarios i can choose are: Corea Sea, Pacific Islands, Okinawa, Crimea, Moscow1, Smolensk.

How can i play alone versus the AI a game with those nice scenarios i see in online mode???

Use the Full Mission Builder to create your own missions wherever you like. All the maps are there. Or start a campaign. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

download lowengrin's dcgn program...it's an application that creates much more immersive and variable campaigns

and while you're at it...look into uberdemon's
UQMG...it allows you to create quick missions which are simply better than the stock QMB.

You are confusing the Quick Mission Builder with Single Missions

The Quick Mission Builder offers extremely limited scenarios, as you have seen

The Single Mission feature allows you to play more complez scenarios, but you can't choose the map or the elememts in it aside from skins for your aircraft. The missions under Single Mission are not limited to the maps you see in the Quick Mission Builder (QMB). In Single Mission, you are playing ready-made scenarios, that have been created in the Full Mission Builder

To have a complex scenario in which you control the elelmets of, you must use the Full Mission Builder (FMB)

On the Il-2 Main Page, you can link to a page from which you can download Single Missions. there are also places like Flying Legends and Airwarfare that offer Single Missions, as well as user-made static campaigns

Netwings (http://www.netwings.org/library/) has a great collection of user-made missions and campaigns. If you are running the 4.01m (merged) version of PF then you should be able to use any mission designed in any version of IL-2/FB/AEP/PF.

After you download and unzip, put the single missions in your "Ubi Soft/ IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles/ Missions/ Single/ (appropriate nation)" subfolder. Then you can launch them through the Single Mission option of the game's main menu. Choose the nation the missions are saved under and then the mission.

Quick Missions are limited in the number of maps available because it takes a good bit of work from the designers to create the templates for the maps that cover all the scenarios you can choose from on each map. Plus I think the general consensus is that you can build your own missions on any map using Full Mission Builder; QMB just gives you an easy way to practice your skills and try out various aircraft.

The suggestion has already been offered to try Lowengrin's Dynamic Campaign Generator (DCG) (http://www.lowengrin.com/news.php) that has templates for many more maps than QMB. You have to fiddle around a bit to get it to work but once you get the hang of how it works it can be a more flexible alternative to both QMB and DGen, the game's native campaign generator.

Absolutely, definitely have access to all maps in the Full Mission Builder, no consensus needed http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Something about eh QMB a lot of people don't realise is that the maps are all fairly small- it doesn't suck up system resources the way, say, the Berlin or Gulf of Finland map will. It's a way for folks with lower end systems to play a relatively high air traffic mission

Thank you all for the info.
I have downloaded DCG and UberDemon and they are both great. I have only used UberDemon for now, and it's very easy to create single and coop missions. I have also installed DCG but it is a bit more difficult to use because you have to do more things to create a campaign.
The problem i see with this game is that it has so many missions and things that i feel collapsed and don't know what to begin with. I'm a noob but i have achieved some kills even in multiplayer, so i'm very excited to learn to be a good IL-2 pilot.
How do you recommend me to become a good pilot? I mean, to begin: play a lot of single missions? or instead playing a dinamic campaign? or playing online?
