Just got PF and I Absolutely Love It! The only question I have is whether I can change the default aircraft 'type' that is given in the 'pilot career' mode. I've always wanted to fly the F4U-1D in a simulation, cut PF doesn't give me that option when I try to fly in career mode as a fighter pilot.

My friend was telling me that there is a post (on this forum) that shows how to edit some text file in order to ADD a specific aircraft 'type', if it isn't in the drop down menu....But I can't find this post when I search for it. If there is anyone that knows of this post or HOW to add a particular aircraft to a career, I'd really appreciate the info! Thanks a million!

I am flying the F4U-1D in Okinawa asa camapign right now. Get the beta of the DGEN and you too can fly campaigns with several other aircraft.

Try this thread, maybe. I only skimmed it.. but it's got the basics of how to get it done, I believe.

There's also the new beta campaign generator but I've not downloaded it or messed with it.

Alright, that link is EXCELLENT, but I can't find the "Code" for the F4U-1D???? That thread is a bit old and doesn't include any of the PF planes....I've been searching the IL-2 folder and can't find any of the text codes for the plane..

Lil help over here... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I dunno man. I'm assuming you should be able to open up other mission folders related to PF and they aught to have the designation inside? I haven't gone digging for them just yet, to be honest.. I'm suprised there isn't the option for a Corsair campaign though?

You suuuuure it's not hiding in there?

(tells you how much free time I've had to play with this... feh)

Just go into the pilot career set-up and to the right of the location/year,where it shows the plane,left click the planes name.A drop down menu will open up new planes to choose.
I think its available in USN/fighter,under some of the 1943/44 years...
Its in there somewhere.

Here is the file you need to edit if you want to change the planes you can fly.....

Contents of DGen/PlanesUSN1.dat

[Guadal1]

[SantaCruz]

F4U1D

If you add the corsairs under the other campaigns, they will be selectable. If you copy the F4U1x & paste it into the PlanesUM1.dat file, you can fly it with the marines as well. If you really want to get crazy, I think you can edit the CampaignsUM1.dat file to add marine carrier campaigns! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

USN fighter, USMC and RN careers all have the Corsair / F4U available. As posted above, after clicking on the Start button, click on the aircraft names in the list to see alternative aircraft. When you click "Generate" the campaign will start at the stage of the war that is highlighted, so make sure you click where you wish to start after altering your aircraft selections.

I'm currently flying a stock USMC campaign in F4U's.
