Hi guys and gals;

I skimmed thru the first couple of pages of the forum and had a few questions about this game before I make a purchase. Please keep in mind a few things:

1) I have never purchased or used a UBI/Maddox game.

2) I'm not looking to change the game, just wondering what features are available.

With that out of the way... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

1) Can users modify the skins that come with the games (aircraft and ships)?

I'm mostly interested the early part of the Pacific war, and would like to know if I can correct side markings, ship camo measures, etc.

I don't fly online, so this is probably something that only I am interested in.

2) Does a 1942 (or later) version of SARATGOGA exist?

The pre-war LEX and SARA with the 8" guns and mahogony decks are cool, but I'd love a Coral Sea version of LEX or a SARA from Guadalcanal.

3) Is there any sort of mission builder?

There are a number of historical missions that I'd love to fly, and because my area of interest is so early in the war, they are probably missions that no one else cares about. Can I build my own?

Thanks for reading.

Chris

1.) Yes and no. You can modify the plane skins and pilot skins but not ships or other vehicles/objects.

2.) Uhmm....can't remember what versions/time periods the carriers are.

3.)Yes, the full mission builder is excellent. And this is one game where some people don't mind flying crappy, early war planes, so the missions you're looking for might already exist.

Yes! You can build your own.....

But, what you get is what you get...
- You can modify plane skins (As in make yer own)
- Dunno if 'a 1942 (or later) version of SARATGOGA exist' (Guess not..)
- "Is there any sort of mission builder?"
Yes, there is...a so called 'Full Mission Builder' as in which you can build any mission you want, as long it's on an existing map, and as long as it uses 'in game' objects... (The '1942 (or later) version of SARATGOGA ' might not be there...I dunno!)
Check the Mission builder forum (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=frm&s=400102&f=50910533) to see what is goin' on and what is or might be possible...

And as for item item number 1) "I have never purchased or used a UBI/Maddox game", never mind, before IL-2 (The Original) I hadn't either!

Welcome!
