View Full Version : Must-have mods?

07-05-2006, 06:41 PM
What are the must-have mods out there for FB+AEP+PF patched up to 4.04m. I know about the PE-2 addon and may others to come but ill wait until they put that on a cd (yea i know its going to be a long wait). But in the meantine any suggestions of mods and skins?

Also, does anyone have a good X-52 profile. Maybe one that uses the 3 modes.

There are no mods for FB+AEP+PF. Just patches, free adons and pay addons. If you want to play online you better buy PE2.

There ARE thousands of skins, campaigns, missions, nosearts and other stuff to get ya goin.

Start at flying legends. (http://www.flying-legends.net/)

I'd suggest IL-2 Mat-Manager from AcesArtworks:


I call that one a 100% MOD. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

A couple that I use that I'd recommend include Mat Manager (http://www.acesartwork.co.uk/), which changes the default aircraft markings to ones more appropriate, and better looking, than the default markings.

There are also several mods for the Dynamic Campaign Generator (DGen) that I use for off-line campaigns, including Nimits' True Pacific mod. Most of them are available here Flying Legends campaign dl's (http://www.flying-legends.net/php/downloads/listings.php?cat_id=28)

Another option to DGen that lots of folks use is Lowengrin's DCG (http://www.lowengrin.com/news.php)

I can recommend a couple...

Wings Over Waves and Wings Over Jungles. Not free but not expensive either. You can get 'em here:http://www.gogamer.com/cgi-bin/GoGamer.storefront/SESSI...roduct/View/001IL2FW (http://www.gogamer.com/cgi-bin/GoGamer.storefront/SESSIONID/Product/View/001IL2FW)

And you'll find a lot of material here:Mission4Today.com (http://mission4today.com/index.php)

In Pursuit: An Online Pilot's Guide to Aerial Combat (http://web.comhem.se/%7Eu85627360/)
Neural Dreaml's Aircraft Reference Guide (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm#001)
IL2 Wingman (http://airwarfare.com/AWX/Files/IL2Wb-60.zip)this little baby is like having Hardball's Viewer, a log parser, Youss' tool and more...... PLUS a dot range tool all in one!!!
Hardball's Aircraft Viewer (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm#014) an online version of the guide basically.. both are very good.
<span class="ev_code_red">U</span>ber <span class="ev_code_red">Q</span>uick <span class="ev_code_red">M </span>ission<span class="ev_code_red">G</span>enerator (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm#043) - This tool will help you to create more diverse quick missions to practice with. It comes with an extensive help file and is pretty easy to use once you doit a few times.
Fraps (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm#010)- A quick and easy way to measure your frames per second
IL2 Manager 5.0 (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm#022) This utility will allow you to make certain adjustments within the config file.. like graphics setting etc. on a gui. While it is highly recommended that you learn where these things are in the config file, once you know that... easy and quick is the way to go. It also has a stick editor which will allow you to set up different profiles for your joystick sensitivity settings.
IL2 Stab (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm#024) Similar to IL2 Manager but without the stick editor and with a Diary feature.
VAC (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm#047)- <span class="ev_code_red">V</span>oice <span class="ev_code_red">A</span>ctvated<span class="ev_code_red">C</span>ommands - This utility is very similar to SHOOT.. it allows you to interact with your PCand thus the sim with voice commands. Very usefull in coops. A bit tricky.. but a good program.
COOP Generator (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm#005) - A random COOP genrator. I have yet to use it but it looks interesting.
Sniper's Corner (http://ourworld.cs.com/Abra772/SC_2_Eng.zip) a nice utility to help get the angles aspect of A2A gunnery in your head - Gunnery at AW.C (http://www.airwarfare.com/tactics/tactics_fwgunnery.htm)-A good explenation of the tool and what is does. Also this entire section at AW.C is a really good resource.

There are tons more but I figured these were good starting points to get us on our way and to help any newcomers get up to speed.
