Since there are so many new folks here I thought I would post this link to several sites that IMO are essential...not only to IL2 but to simming in general. For convenience I have put color codes on the links. Please note that most of the links marked Websites are very dynamic and they usually contain reference materials,files and utilities and should be thoroughly browsed through. Sites with ***** are Essential Essentials either due to function or content.

And of course right here. There is a wealth of info on this site as well so explore the other forums and links here and you will find most if not all the answers you need for any questions you may have. There are also other sites in cyberspace where unofficial mods to the sim can be obtained. Some of them are well done and some are not so well done. We offer no tech support for these mods here and we cannot post links to such sites however, for more information on the subject please read this thread (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/7441010176).

P.S. For those who have noticed.. this is not the same Essentials thread started 5 (Or was it 6) years ago. Somehow that one got deleted.. This was made from a backup I made of the links.. but it was an old back up. I have since edited it and removed the dead links.. I will try to add to it as I go along.

If there is something you think should be added just drop me a PM.
