Hey in quick mission builder theres only certain planes available to fly. Is there any way to get into one of the planes that arent flyable via QMB to fly them? (Like the B17, 29 etc)?

Thanks.

You can't, except without cockpit, by using a hack.

Well you can fly all the planes in this sim, but you will only be able to do it from externals, and in dogfight server mode only.

I personnally lack the knowledge to create such a dogfigh map, but perhaps someone here can pitch in.

He means external views, as said way before.

Meaning no in-cockpit view nor gunner positions.

furyan65,

It is done like this:
1. Create a mission in FMB with at least 1 home base
2. Have all possible planes in the base
3. Save the mission and exit FMB
4. Manually edit the mission file and add the code of the non-flyable AC to the end of the list of planes available in the home base
5. Start a dogfight server on your PC and select the mission
6. Select a regular AC and hit fly to go out to the runway
7. Select Refly without exiting the mission and select the desired bomber
8. Hit Fly and your on the runway again, with external view of your favorite AC
9. You can start the engine normally and fly the plane, only from outside view (no cokcpit).

For a list of non-flyable AC codes see my table in M4T IL-2 Functions (http://mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=1740)
