During the World War II, pilots used to learn by heart the setting lists to be applied to their aircraft for the takeoff, before fighting, landing, etc. In general, we are using more that one aircraft type and things may be forgotten (landing with the gear retracted, tail hook inside the plane before landing on the carrier deck...). To help me, I made several written lists, corresponding to my favourite birds. Quite a repetitive job!€¦

So, I made a small tool automating it when €˜touching€ a new aircraft. Here is this tool, developed with MS Excel, and helping to self make checklists adapted to IL2-FB-PF. To use it, just fill the yellow fields (replace TRUE by FALSE, if an equipment is not fitted in a plane, add the supercharger level number, the maximum bomb load if so, etc.).

The check list will self-build!

Released with my favorite planes, as examples.

I guess I'm not getting exactly how this works . . . What do you mean by "automating it when €˜touching€ a new aircraft"?

I am guessing Kaluth just miss this, so in hopes he (or someone else that uses it) sees this, could you explain exactly how the spreadsheet is supposed to generate a new checklist? Thanks.
