Sorry, first post, and couldn't tell if a TBM Avenger has been added. If so, is there a place I can go and download. Sorry if this info is already available...I did a search, and saw I'm not the only one looking for a US Navy torpedo bomber for my squadron

There is no flyable Avenger in the game...AI only.

Also, the only downloads for Forgotten Battles/Pacific Fighters are skins, missions, campaigns and Useful Third-Party Utilities, and the Pe-2 addon (which you need to pay for, and which requires the merged (Forgotten Battles + Pacific Fighters) install.

(According to legend, we were going to get a flyable Avenger, but Northrop-Grumman (who have inherited the original copyright to the design) threatened to sue for breach of trademark or theft of intellectual property unless Ubi/1C paid ridiculous license fees to sell their aircraft in a sim.)

Welcome aboard..... Are you running PF as a standalone or the fully merged version? If you are just doing the stand alone do yourself a favor and merge ASAP. As for the downloads.... as Phil said... we dont have downloadable planes in this sim... all new planes come directly from the developer.... however there are tons of absolutely FANTASTIC third party utilities available... everything from stick sensitivity utilities to mission logger, mission tweakers, mission builders, may I recommend that you visit here (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/IL2/il2_essential_files.htm) and here (http://mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads) and also hit the Sturmovik Essentials link in my sig.

Again... welcome aboard.

Hey guys, you're lucky if all you did is dribble. I think I'm going to have to rent one of those carpet steamer things to clean up the beer from the carpet around the confuser. Any hints on cleaning keyboards would also be welcome <ggg.> All the best, LongHorn

Sorry: I should have added a question mark to my original post.

Nice crowd here. I have the merged version, and have been successful in downloading some missions, including a great series of beaufighter missions.
i just thought i was missing something. i mean, a Pacific Theater game without Devastors or Avengers...AT least you can hang a torp on a Beau in the New Guinea campaign missions. Anyway, still learning, and I want to thank everybody for their help.

And sorry for causing the carpet stains. I find owning a dog goes a long way toward keeping the carpet clean.
My dog prefers Budweiser.

Make sure you look at www.mission4today.com (http://www.mission4today.com)

Lot's of good single player missions and campaigns.

I know....I've been looking at them, but I'm doing something wrong...the mossie missions look great, and downloaded and showed up, but when I go to start one, it doesn't recognize the plane.

and I can't get Road to Normanday at all.

I need to study up more on the way to download. I'll get it. I figured out CFS and CFS3 after a while (but this is SO much better).

Anyway, thanks again for all the support and suggestions. Happy flying.

Most of those missions will not work unless you're running the merged edition. That is Forgotten Battles+Ace Expansion Pack+Pacific Fighters+the latest patches.

Ah, patches.

I need patches. that's it. I'll hunt around for them.

The flight models on these planes are great. Now I know how Yeager spun in a p-39 while training. Those things can be a real bear at a low speed bank turn.
