Dear UQMG users from the IL-2 FB Community,

It is my extreme pleasure to bring you another comprehensive upgrade to UQMG. This time the focus of the upgrade is new maps. UQMG was featured in both Computer Pilot and PC Pilot magazines recently. Read some of the comments in the end of this post.

New UQMG 3.10.1 Features & Fixes
================================
- Added ability to view latest update "README" file from UQMG.
- Switched position of "Map" list with "Mission Type" list, which makes more sense.
- Minor user interface change.
- Disabled mission templates in Net 1 Summer map which do not work correctly
- Bf-109G-14 MG151/20 Pod load fixed
- Bf-109G-14 incorrect load of 1xSC500 corrected to 4xSC50
- If you are a QMT user, update QMT files from UQMG, under Tools menu.

4 New Maps for SINGLE and COOP Play (& DF Arena)
================================================
1) Balaton Summer (1 Mission Type):
o Enhanced Head-to-Head template for single and coop play (& DF Arena)
* Main battle area over Lake Balaton
* 4 Hungarian Bases, w/ Hungarian marked static planes & Nimrod AAA
* 2 US Bases, w/ US marked static planes, ground units & M16 AAA
* 2 Soviet Bases, including ZSU37 AAA
* Ground targets of opportunity
* AAA dispersed throughout map on unused bases & cities
* Barrage ballons dispersed through Allied side
* Observation baloons dispersed through Axis side

2) Balaton Winter (1 Mission Type):
* Same features as Summer map

3) Moscow Summer (8 Mission Types)
8 New templates for single and coop play (& DF Arena):
o Air Combat Over German Area
o Air Combat Over Soviet Area
o Attack Enemy Ground Units
o Attack Enemy Bridge
o Attack Enemy Airbase
o Defend Friendly Ground Units
o Defend Friendly Bridge
o Defend Friendly Airbase

This map and its new templates are inspired by the basic QMB mission types for the Winter Moscow map which came with IL2FB out of the box, however they include powerful enhancements with all the UQMG features, including ability to take off from a base in addition to starting the mission on head to head fashion, and much, much more.

4) Moscow Winter (8 Mission Types)
* Same features as Summer map

4 New Mission Types For Smolensk Map
====================================
The Smolensk mission types were also building on the basic QMB templates. As a bonus you are getting 4 New greatly enhanced mission types for this map, including all the same types of features you see on the Moscow template:
o Attack Enemy Bridge
o Attack Enemy Airbase
o Defend Friendly Bridge
o Defend Friendly Airbase

4 New Rule Sets
===============
Now that the Balaton maps are ready, I created some new rule sets based on Hungary:
* 1944 Hungary/Balaton
* 1944 Hungary/Balaton - Flyable planes only
* 1944 Hungary - featuring US planes as well
* 1944 Hungary - featuring US planes as well (flyables only)

Get this upgrade at:
* http://www.uberdemon.com
* Download the Zip file and unzip it in the directory you installed UQMG for IL2 FB (most likely "c:\program files\uberquickfb"

UQMG in the News
================
UQMG and www.uberdemon.com (http://www.uberdemon.com) have been featured in the December Edition of two of the most respected flight simulation magazines in the world:
* Computer Pilot (Australia/USA) - www.computerpilot.com (http://www.computerpilot.com)
* PC Pilot (UK) magazines - www.pcpilot.net (http://www.pcpilot.net)

Both magazines briefly talked about UQMG and featured the installation files for their readers.

"The ultimate mission generator application for UbiSoft's IL2 Sturmovik: Forgotten Battles! Give it a go!"
- Computer Pilot Magazine CD, December 2003

"... UQMG (Uber Quick Mission Generator) is an absolute must-download... Designed by a former IL2 beta tester, this free program is the ultimate alternative to the very limited Quick Mission Builder included in the game."
- Computer Pilot Magazine, December 2003 (Exerpts from Virtual Aviator and Freeware Frenzy sections, pgs 25, 45)

"Uber-Demonic Missions - A great mission utility for Forgotten Battles"
- PC Pilot Magazine CD, December 2003

"... writing your own [mission] might not be everybody's cup of vodka. This is where Demian Souza's Uber Quick Mission Builder comes to the rescue. It's not a campaign generator, but you can use it to quickly generate brillant missions for Forgotten Battles. We're having a lot of fun with it and we're sure you will too."

Uberdemon, you were the topic of several posts here today. I wasn't expecting an update so soon, and rest assured, your software is the subject of much praise around here.

Thank you so very much, Sir http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

This is going to sound dumb but how do I delete missions from the folder? Will I have to go to explorer and find them there or is there a simpler way?

Thanks UberDemon!
You should update the description text (headline) for the All Inclusive Upgrade on the site though, its still listed as 3.9.7 version. Might be confusing for some ppl looking for the upgrade. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Bearcat, at the top of the UI, under the tools menu there is an option for deleting missions from the cache. I swear, the guy has thought of everything.

I just downloaded the original program and upgrade and am following the ABSOLUTELY AWESOME install instructions!!!

I can see why this isn't sold by a "regular" software company. The documentation is SUPERB!!

The effort that you have put into just the documention is amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

I'll be updating my Paypal account so I can contribute.

Great stuff UD and thanks again!

I have a request though which would be huge for creating squadron practices with the random options you included last time. The idea is to have random cloned flights coming in waves but to be able to randomize the number and type of flights, and altitude as well!

What I'm really asking for is two things:

1) the ability to make exceptions or rule sets for the "random data" button down in the bottom right of the editor.

2) Have a "toggle random" button beside each flight and mission settings parameter to keep it from being randomized at all when you hit the random data button.

The main thing is I can't figure out a way to keep, say my first friendly flight from being randomized with everything else! Sometimes on finishing a co-op the squad wants to play it again with our same planes but not be able to predict where the enemy will be. With a "hold" button beside our main flight it wouldn't be changed with everything else that's randomized. This is handy if you don't want to include flights 2,3,and 4 for both friendly and enemy flights as well.

Of course, I may have missed something and it's already possible so if it is I'd love to know!

Thanks again for your incredible efforts UD!
