View Full Version : Getting New Planes

05-28-2007, 10:57 AM
Just had some few questions about the game. I have owned for a long time but only play it every once in awhile. I was wondering is there a way to fly the B-17. If so how do I do it.
Also is there a mod out to add in more plans to PF Stand alone. Thanks guys.

Flyable B-17: no, not really. OK, somebody will chime in here about how you can fly it in <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">external view</span> if you are on an online server, and you choose a truly flyable plane first then exit and return in the B-17 ... but for simplicity's sake, it is not a flyable.

More planes: If you are patched to version 4.04, you've got all the planes you are ever going to get with PF stand-alone. The game was designed to not be modded -- the files are encrypted to prevent online cheating.

Support for the Pacific Fighters standalone product ended when the Pe-2 Peshka expansion came out for the FB+AEP+PF 'merged' version last year. Don't expect any more official upgrades for Pacific Fighters.

If you want more flyable planes than what you have, and your PF version is fully patched, your best option is to take the plunge and get the 1946 DVD that hs the whole series on it. There's still no flyable B-17 or B-24 or B-29 on the DVD, and I doubt any of these will magically appear in the anticipated final patch for 1946, but you'll greatly increase the number of planes, maps and objects available to you otherwise.

Aircraft model development efforts are being focused on the Storm of War series, there is supposed to be one more patch for the IL2-1946, but any planes in that patch will surely be from work that was completed some time ago. So no, no cockpit for the B-17 or B-24 or TBF/TBM Avenger.

yeah in about 2 weeks time! ;-)

As to models well there have been a lot of great models seen on various pages, but they never made it into the game. Just have to think of a fantastic 3d model of the battelship Yamato complete with DM but instead we have only those British Battleships http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif
