Hi all,

I'm absolutely new to this game. I was shocked when I first visited the Il-2 website full of different addons, patches, expansions. Can anyone please advise me "who is who" in the game?

I think of purchasing "IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946" but don't know if FB, AEP, and PF must be installed over '46 or if they're separate addons?!?

Since the website says FB, AEP & PF are extensions or sequels released for IL-2, shall I keep my original IL-2 and install them over it? But then what to do with "1946"???

Thanks,

IL-2 1946 is all that you need. Buy that and then install one patch to bring it up to 4.08 and you have everything...no need to buy AEP, PF, or anything previous.

There is a new 4.09 patch with some new maps on the way but its not here yet.

Forget FB, PF and the others, get "IL-46" and you'll get them all in one package. Make a brand new install and all you'll need is 4.08 (you can wait to get 4.09...unless you want to try the beta patch now) and you're good to go. You'll have all the addons in one place. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

These games are our hobby in common, some of us are flight simmers for over 20 years. ;^)

Anyway, the more people that buy, the better the support and future of the genre Sooooo
just think of the help as a kind of self-interest and for sure we mighta hooked another one!

You will find that this is a very dedicated and helpful community. Most of us are very passionate about this sim.. and many of us have been at it for years.

And the last question of this topic:

What about Manchuria and PE-2 addons? Are they also included in '46?

Again thanks!

Welcome to the ..WIERDO club, where your better half will eventually agree that playing IL2 is better than.. pub-crawling. She/he might not see you that often, and look at you strangely as you 'ratatatat' at the cars in front of you, and many other wierd things
