hey, i know most gamers frown upon cheating.
but i've still got to ask the question.

i was playing the old m$ combat flight sim at a friends house and i saw that i could adjust certain realism values. like i could give myself unlimited fuel or not take damage. of course this is single player .. but my question being, does IL2 have any adustments like that? it was easier to get in to the swing of things when you were just learning to control the finer points of flying and manuvering around other planes. i haven't bought IL2 yet ... but i'm trying to find out a bit about it ... it looks SOOO great, just a beautiful amazing looking game, but it also looks like its true to life and has a high learning curve.

please don't flame me for the cheating question. its innocent enough, i'd never cheat anyone but myself.

thanks - tek

You can find all these settings in the game. On the other hand, when you get on-line you will find that its the host's setting you will have to fly by. Even so there are servers hosting all kinds of setups.......from full-real to arcade....and you can take your pick http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif But the hosts settings will override yours.

I suggest you read the manual, it's all in there.
Have fun...

lol...Thats not cheating. Thats called having fun. Fly any settings you want in single player. Make it as easy or hard as you want. After awhile on the easy settings you might want to increase the difficulty and then it's only a click or two away. Glad to see you join the forum's.

I suggest you trust your instinct and buy this "beautiful amazing looking game". You'll love it. You can make it as easy or difficult as you want it to be. That's the real beauty of it. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

"So when Diogenes perceived that he was greatly excited and quite keyed up in mind with expectancy, he toyed with him and pulled him about in the hope that somehow he might be moved from his pride and thirst for glory and be able to sober up a little. For he noticed that at one time he was delighted, and at another grieved at the same thing, and that his soul was as unsettled as the weather at the solstices when both rain and sunshine come from the very same source."

(Dio Chrysostom "Discourse" 4.77-78)

Cool a new target! Nummy Nummy. Make sure you get IL2 Forgotten Battles Not the IL2 Sturmovik.

IL2 FB has all the Sturmovik had and more. The you can get the AceExpansionPack addon aswell to add to it. Moat of us are flying it that way now. You might even find it in a GOld package IL2FB+AEP

Yeah, look for the gold edition. Forgotten Battles + Aces expansion bundled together, it's the cheapest way to get the latest incarnation of IL-2 if you don't already have any of it.

FB isn't an addon, its a stand-alone program that contains all that Il-2 has and much more, like a few tons of extra aircraft, dynamic campaign, higher resolution aircraft skins, the ability to put custom skins on offline aircraft,...

AEP contains a bunch more aircraft.

If I were you then I'ld try to fly full real or nearly full real. It's challenging but a lot more rewarding. But, then again, if you turn all the realism options (like running out of fuel and ammo, being able to stall, not being able to use the No Cockpit view) off, then no-one else will know...
