Hello folkes, it's me again, your friendly neighborhood AllorNothing117. For once in my life I'm making a post that doesn't revolve around my inability to fly the P-38 in a striaght line. On behalf of me and my Dad "Deskpiolet" who are both big fans of IL-2, I would like to ask:

"How do you go about making a Full Mission"

The quick ones are great for learnng to fly against a foe that isn't the ground, or more specificaly, the runway, but they are somewhat limiting after a while (as I'm sure you all know). So, any tips, walkthroughs, links, videos, or anything you think will be hepfull will be apretiated! Thanks.

The following link is a good place to start when making your own mission in the FMB:

FMB Tutorial (http://www.il2-fullmissionbuilder.com/index.php)

Also, take a look at other missions in the FMB, to see how they were made. Check out Mission4today (http://www.mission4today.com) for a ton of user-created missions and campaigns.

This just might make your day! (http://www.lowengrin.com/news.php)

Lowengrin's Dynamic Campaign Generator will generate more than campaigns.

From the page explaining Modes note that both Single Mission and Coop are there:

Manual Mission Generation Mode (Pilot Career, Single Mission, Coop, or Dogfight).

1. Run DCG.
2. Select the mission mode: Coop, or Dogfight or Single Player Manual (SPManual = no mode checked).
3. If this is a new campaign, click on the "World" icon, otherwise skip to #6.
4. From the drop-down box that appears, select the country/service and campaign.
5. Click on the "Start Button".
6. Make any other changes such as squadron, plane, weather, etc.
7. Click the Generate Mission button.
8. Run IL2/FB and fly the mission.
9. When you are finished flying the mission, ALT + TAB out of IL2/FB and manually generate a new mission.

With this tool you can play missions that you can set parameters for yet don't know all the
details before you fly.

Still it is good to learn the FMB basics if only to create training and practice missions with.

You can even start simple ...by using the 'Mission mate' utility to create better Quick missions....and some of the mod maps are in it now too....
