Hi there

I just got AEP this Friday and picked up a copy of the Battle over Europe aswell this morning. Will I be able to install it over IL-2 FB with AEP already installed? Will there be issues?

Regards
Gian

Oops, almost forgot, there is a night mission and it talks about night skin for the planes, but in the mission, there is just a plain skin, the skin didn't come with it, you can got to just flight and the download skins are there as a simi patch

Oh yeah, having read the Article on BOE on SimHQ I see that they stated that they will make the new planes that AEP provided available in the campaigns.

This is great news. Any more news on this?

Cheers

AEP over a clean install of IL2FB and then BOE last.

I had problems with missing graphics not doing it this way.

You know when AEP is installed properly when you have a new start up screen.

News on that is that we will have 5 new careers.

P-38 fighter bomber, Stuka D5 night bomber, BF-110 interceptor, Me-163 rocket interceptor and RAF fighter or fighter/bomber career.

It is done except of German and French localisation of RAF career (and new Spitfires for this career)

Great to hear you put in the British Spitfire campaign. I am sure that will make alot of the guys "across the pond" happy.
Looking forward to it.

These sound very good. Any idea about timing yet?

Hey all, i have AEP and BOE too - i have a skin question for BOE. When i select a fighter group for my career i see the skin available in the ustomise aircraft screen but when i select the right skin for my aircraft it is never put on the rest of the ai planes i fly with. I thought one of the ups of this addon was that your whole squadron would fly with historically accurate skins offline. Was i wrong or is there something i am doing wrong? I cant seem to find anything in the manuals to help so any advice would be much appreciated.

After release of Oleg's patch (or rather after time when I have final version of it), I need a couple of days to add the planes. Plus I need German and French texts, I hope they will be ready even before that. The rest depends on JF - but it all should be done pretty quickly. Early to mid April?

Your "own" skin as well as your photo are handled independently on your squadron's skin. They are not a part of the mission, the game itself manages them.

For your squadron skins are assigned in .DB file - at least for all skins that we have in BoE and it is a lot. If your squadron is not in the list, you can modify it. There is no option to link you personal skin with your squadron skin. Actually it is pretty good idea, and may be I'll suggest it to Oleg.

O yeah about that new Ju-87D-5 bomber. Somebody said it was a night bomber but there are hardly any night missions in the campaign, and what the difference between this one from other Stukas.
