It would be really helpful if someone could tell me which of the addons are compatible with and really add something to IL-2 1946.

I've got a copy of Ost Front winging its way to me (postal strike permitting http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif) and was thinking of getting Barbarossa particularly, but am not sure if it's included in 1946 already or any of the enjoyr patches, or compatible with it/them.

Hi Mehring
Sorry I can't answer all your questions, as I don't have those addons myself.
As far as being compatible with '46 - I'm pretty sure they are. Hopefully someone will be along soon with an answer.
Also, the content for these addons is not included in '46 - so you will not be buying unnecesarily. By all accounts, some of the addons are well worth the purchase.

Barbarossa is not included in any of the above. You will need Battle Over Europe to play some of the EnjoyR campaigns. I have Ostfront as well.

Thanks for that, bigbossmalone and Breeze147, I'll make my merry way to ebay now.

There are a couple of worthwhile addons;

Barbarossa-
This was the original. There are some great skins, and a VERY long campaign for 109's and 190's on the Eastern Front.

The static campaigns are very well done, and if your looking for a long term offline campaign, they are quite good. The original didnt have some of the newer aircraft models, but I believe that it has been updated.

Battle over Europe-
You will want to get this. Lots of USAAF/RAF skins and campaigns, and opposing Luftwaffe campaigns.

Fall Blau-
This is a decent southern front campaign for the East Front. Weighted heavily twoards the Blue side, the Axis campaigns are good, the VVS campaigns arent quite as well done.

The Last Days-
Very nice late war campaign set and some very nice skins. Once again, weighted twoards Blue, but a good all around expansion with some nice "What if" campaigns as well, allowing you to fly some of the late war wonderplanes.

Ostfront-
Another must have. Adds a ton of content for the Eastern Front, but plugs in a lot of material for Kurland, Finland, and the Lenningrad area. Great campaigns.

Also, if you REALLY want to get the most out of these, go look up the Enjoyr expansions. Enjoyr has taken a ton of popular user made campaigns and integrated them with these paid expansions by reconciling conflicts with the data files. The packs add a ton of stuff and are a must for offline flyers. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hey, that's comprehensive! Thanks, Ernst_Rohr. I found Case Blue and The Last Days downloadable at Matrix Games, in case anyone else is looking for them- http://www.digitalriver.com/dr/sat5/ec_MAIN.Entry16?SP=...0&ABCODE=&CACHE_ID=0 (http://www.digitalriver.com/dr/sat5/ec_MAIN.Entry16?SP=10024&PN=29&xid=50505&V1=31034041&V2=31034041&V3=1&V4=38&V5=11000377&S1=&S2=&S3=&S4=&S5=&CUR=826&DSP=0&PGRP=0&ABCODE=&CACHE_ID=0)

They also have a Pacific addon, Banzai! but I haven't really got the hang of my bf 109 yet so that'll have to wait.

Mate, there are literally THOUSANDS of professional looking FREE user made campagins and skins out thre for you to download at mission4today.

I can recommend any campaigns by Icefire and Flatspinman, although I know thre are many other fantastic mission makers on this forum too. I just dont have time to play them as I play 99% online.

Try out Icefires 'Stormclouds' Tempest camapaign for exaplme. Or Flatspinmans 'Luftwaffe pilot Afika'

I think youi will soon realise that there isnt much point in paying for addons when the user made campagins and skins are this good!

Pluswave do 5 or 6 big add-ons. They work with Sturmovik 1946 and are well worth the money:

There are lots of screenshots on the site, if you look for them. Screenshots of skins too.

Here are some I took:

I can recommend all stuff by Pluswave aswell.
"The Fires Above" and "Rebirth Of Honor" are masterpieces.
