IL2 '46 maps do not show terrain elevation. I like fighting over TALL Mountain Ranges, any recommended list of places I can find these tall and rough terrains?

Additionally, what about a list of some of the most beautiful places to fly in?

Depends what version your flying.

If your flying 4.09 beta, slovakia is beautiful for that, nice mountains and valleys, its the best of the official maps.

If your not flying the beta, and using 4.08, the kuban or the south of the crimea are the only real places to go, not that tall, but not flat. I have spent thousands of hours flying there overe the last 8 years or so, lol. There is also a small map in the fmb onlinesomething, which has 3 large (5000m ish) mountains in it.

Of course, if you mod your game, you can fly over the alps, the Slovenia map is also exceptional, and just for fun the grand canon. The slot has good elevation in places too.

There is a multiplayer map that has some pretty tall mountains, makes a good sub for the Alps. It's in at least v4.07m. I don't recall what it's called in the FMB, but in a mis file it would be called Netmountains.

Most beautiful places to fly in for IL-2? The Slovakia map in v4.09 is amazing, and I always liked the Pacific Fighters maps like Tarawa, Wake, New Guinea and Midway, especially if you have Perfect water and all the eye-candy turned up.

Try the cities:
Kiev.
St. Petersburg.
Helsinki (I think).
Berlin.


Also Cannnes on the Normandy map. That little Island off St. Petersburg that's so detailed: Kronstadt (or it's called something similar).
The Slovakian map if you have that installed is the most detailed.

Intersting things to see:

The castle at Jalta in Crimea



I was thinking for a long time that it would be nice to have a 'Postcards from..' thread showing all the sights in the game.

Online6 is pretty good too. It's a large rectangular island with lakes, tall hills & lots of canyons, gullies & airfields at various elevations. Lots of salt water also for carrier activity.

For those with 4.09 beta installed, how's it coming along? Any major gripe, stability issue? Am tempted to give it a go.

its been out for over a year now, all it does is add a few maps and extend world visability, no other changes from 4.08, no stability issues at all.

Pardon my limited geography knowledge, but which map do I load to find the Alps in 4.08m?

I downloaded 4.09 beta, but there isn't any executable. How do I install the files?

The Alps map, Slovakia Winter, Slovenia Summer and Winter version are mods and you can not find it over here.
Google AllAircraftArcade and you can get it there.

After d/l and installing V4.09b you will have the Slovakia map.
I don't know anymore how to install this bta patch. I would advise to ask this at the Community Help forum.
