Ok call me a noob and flame away. but I've been playing Il2 for ages and still don't no how to access the addtional maps. For offline play i normally just setup a quickmission but only have access to about 4 maps ? ? ?

Is the only way to access the new maps via the Full mission builder?

Only way I know is through FMB.

The easiest and quickest way to use many of the other maps is to use Mission Mate (http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=8)
or The Uber Quick Mission Generator (http://www.uberdemon.com/index2.html). Both utilkities are community made and nicely fill the gap between the Full Mission Builder and the Quick Mission Builder. I also recommend that you learn to use the FMB.. but in the meantime those programs will really open things up for you. I prefer Mission Mate myself.

There's a link to the nugget guide in Bearcat's signature at the bottom of all his posts. From it you'll get a wealth of info and other links about IL2.

Click it.

Looks like I've found them (i think) - They are listed as Net 4 Mountains etc and not as Slovakia http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Net4 is an older multiplayer map.

Slovakia is too new to be in UQMG. I don't think the new maps from 4.08m (Italy, Norway, etc.) are even in UQMG yet. As I recall, Demon's spare time got eaten up by real life commitments. I wouldn't expect a UQMG update anytime soon...at least not while the 4.09m patch is still in a beta state.

Mission Mate was updated later than the UQMG so it has a few of the newer maps that the UQMG does not but neither program has Slovakia.. that map just came out in the latest beta patch. If you fail to see how the Nugget's Guide is helpful and you can't find the maps in the UQMG then you have a bigger problem than we can solve on these boards. Personally I find MM to be a bit easier and more user freindly, but the UQMG is a bit more flexible.. both programs do enough stuff differently to warrant a place on my HD.

Check out this link. It's the UBI IL2 Mission Builders forum. There's a basics tutorial as well as advanced mission building.

By following the basics you'll get to fly on the new Bessarabia and Slovakia map.


birdbrains first post has a link tyo Campaign Building Tutorial.

Untill UDQMB et al are updated for the new maps and patch this is the only way to fly the new maps.

It looks daunting at first. But within ten minutes you'll get enough of the basics to form a small dogfight.

Have fun and good luck. If you're still lost a few fine fellows are in that forum and will be glad to help.

I'm making my first REAL mission in the new maps. I'm having a bit of a go, but so far the results are worth it.

Odessa will be in flames if I don't stop 60 odd He 111s. No small task when they're escorted by about 20 FW 190 D9s.

As Bearcat correctly suggests, both UQMG and Mission Mate need to have any new maps programmed into them before they can be used, neither program can make use of new maps automatically.

I have already begun adding Bessarabia, MTO and Slovakia into Mission Mate. Man, that Slovakia map is a real beauty isn't she chaps?

Bearcat sorry m8, I think you may have misread / understood my post. Of course I have found all your posts of great value and very informative. I simply meant that I did not see how it was relevant to my orginal question regarding access to the new maps. No offence or slight towards the calibre of your posts/information intended. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif

Cheers I've never really used the FMB part of the game in all these years so I guess it's time I start to take a look lol http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
