I have seen a few sites with nice piccies of catalinas and so fourth for Il2. I know that users cant make addons but I recall hearing somewhere that third party stuff can get into sturmovik.

Could someone demystify all of this for me?

Cheers

You can design an aircraft yourself but you have to submit it to Oleg for approval.

Because of strict standards & the time it takes to integrate new planes into the game it's very tough to get one accepted.

thanks for that, so where can I get these planes. Do they come out in patches?

What does Oleg say about maps? I really was hoping for a BATTLE OF LEYTE GULF addon for PF, but it seems to me, Oleg and the gang will be concentrating on BoB from now on http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I have a willing team of 10 talented 3D-modellers and experienced DEM file specialists standing by, all of them Filipino, who would be only too happy to volunteer to get our country in PF. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

rodion_zero - read the ReadmePF.rtf that comes with PF - there is information on how to contact Oleg, etc...

The modellers make the planes, Oleg eats the planes and bakes them into a lovely lovely patch which will always cone out in 'about two weeks' perpetually. You want www.netwings.org (http://www.netwings.org) and the FB modellers forum for the in-progress shots.

so all of those guchi models that come out are designed by third parties.

A Battle of Leyte Gulf map would be nice. Wasn't it the biggest or one of the biggest naval battles in history? But if its that important I'm sure we'll get the map in a patch

THE biggest. 2000 aircraft were involved during one of the battles alone. There were many smaller battles that made up the entire Leyte Gulf Battle. More info here:

Scroll down to the bottom of that page, and start at October 23, 1944...I count at least 9-10 engagements that made up the entire battle! Check out the ships that were involved!!! You got the Yamato and Musashi there! BTW Musashi was clobbered by USN and sank in our waters http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif No one has able to locate the exact spot of the wreck, but it can't be more than 250 feet down...that's the average depth of our inter-island seas.
