There you have it.
http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/IL2/il2_essential_files.htm#001

Print it as a booklet if your printer can, and perhaps you'd like to tick something like "scale/fit/reduce page to margins", since not all use the same paper size http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif.

A few years ago, when i first started playing the IL-2 series there were so many things
I couldn't and wanted to understand. What i felt i needed was a printed guide like this
one, with a description of each plane, short history, flying tips, armament, speed and an
explanation of the cockpit instruments.

Most of the armament and cockpit information i got it from Pe_Mosor's website with his kind
permission.
The Speed values are between the actual current value (version 4.02) and the ones found by
various historical sources, and I do not claim they are accurate but i'm sure they are
at least indicative.
The flying tips were taken from personal experience and from various threads during the
last years in the official 1C Maddox UBI forums, including 25 threads dedicated on this guide, in which several forum members spotted mistakes and provided their knowledge of
the game and the history of WW2 aircraft.
Special thanks to always helpful LEBillfish who provided lots of flying tips for the
Japanese aircraft, and a big thank you to the very mature, funny, knowledgable and
arrestingly friendly IL2+PF community.

Excellent work Dream, I can only imagine how many hours and effort you dedicated to this gem.
Is the plane in the front cover drawn by hand? It looks like having being scanned. If so, then I double the congratulations!

On the order of nations. The first five agree with the order of nations in a turn based board game about WWII, whose exact name is eerrr... not in my memory. About the last three, Romania, Italy, Poland, no idea, (but initials do form R.I.P., heh)

Another observation:

I printed it in booklet form, and found a slight problem: On page 6, the IL2, the first line did not print completely on the right side.

The showed up only as T so two characters are missing.
Also page 14, the first line missed the word
'the' on the right.

Could this be my printer? (HP Laserjet 1200)

Me thinks you've got the right hand margin a tiny bit too small...

I checked it in a laser Kyocera-Mita fs3830 and an inkjet Epson CX3200 and didn't have any problem. Perhaps you could tick something like "reduce/fit page to margins". Let me know if you don't find any solution with your printer custom settings.

I was thinking one thing that you could add could be flight time on 100% fuel, based on a constant speed of 300-350kph?

It's all very well stating the range of an aircraft, but most people I know who fly online in wars, and so on, and who fly regular long coops, they want to know how long they stay in the air in the context of hours and minutes. They are not concerned with how far they can fly.

I.E. early Yaks, you've got around 45mins of operational flying before you need to head back to base, IL-2s have a good 90 minutes, probably more, on a full tank, that sort of thing.

What ye reckon?

neural_dream
10-26-2005, 05:32 PM
Hm, not bad idea and it would be useful, but there are a couple of problems:

1. Too lengthy procedure.

Maybe not. You can estimate the time by measuring up to 1/4 of the fuel and multiply this by 4. You retrim the plane every little while, while you watch tv or read a book and leave it on x2 or x4 depending on the accuracy of the trim.

2. The flight times in IL2-PF are completely unrealistic, and so a bit outside the scope of the guide.

However, if someone else provided me with the numbers I wouldn't say no. It's just that i don't have the motivation to do it on my own, since it wouldn't have any sense outside this sim, and maybe the specific version of the sim.


and also a thing i enjoy immensely is sketching the map and the path i will or i do follow and keep notes for time and fuel. This way i feel how long i can stay and it's what the pilots in WW2 would do. The Messerschmitts knew for example that they would have only about 5 mins to dogfight over england before they would have to come back, but noone knew exactly. It's part of the magic of the sim, and that's one more reason why i have these second thoughts about adding what you suggested. Still, i find it reasonable.

Oleg told me that he asked UBI for the possibility to add the guide in the Platinum version, and they are thinking about it.

Good to hear, what I wished and wrote in thank you reply.
It must be printed one, be it color or black&white. I can recommend anyone, even who own all FB series, to buy platinum because of this guide.

Absolutely what I (we?....) needed!
I have been going trough IL2 compare and the forum and back and forth the in game aircraft viewer to manage something like that...and you gave us the top thing (being the noob I am, I really like the quick tips about which version of which plane is good for what...when to change mixture etc...).
Definitely deserves to be in the (hopefully) planned platinum version...a real platinum guide!

How much are they paying you? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Have you considered creating an index?
I've just printed it and put it in a binder and it looks real purty thank you very much, but "CTRL/F" won't work anymore. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

You're my hero! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif This is exactly what I've been looking and longing for, an easy-to-read guide that gives a brief history of the aircraft and supplies hints and facts (I've often wondered about the difference between all the subvariants of aircraft...armament, speed, etc). Thank you!

This deserves a bümp.

Best climb speed with 25% fuel should be the next thing to include (Also, I read somewhere that the Ta climbes best with combat flaps?). For combat this matters as much as the turn speed/time for full circle.
Anyone has data on these things (even if it is for just one particular a/c)?

The guide is great. Its been a big help to me.
One thing I would like to see, and maybe there is another source for this, but landing speeds, best climb speeds, stuff like that

Landing and stalling speeds are so easy to find or estimate for each aircraft that there's no reason having them in a quick reference guide IMO.
About the rest I'm afraid I don't have the necessary date. IL2compare that used to have them will probably not be released again. You can download an earlier version of it though. Things haven't changed that much.
